What have you been reading this week?
There’s really not much point in posting this rundown this week because I basically didn’t post anything new last week. However, I have read a couple of things so I figured it was worth a quick update. I didn’t end up reading as much as I expected on my week off. Mostly because we spent the week exploring and doing so much. I had assumed the weather would keep us inside but it was lovely. So lovely that we didn’t spend much time inside relaxing. At least I managed to finish a couple and get a good chunk into the next one. Hopefully, it’ll get May off to a good start.

- BOOK POST – April 2023 Reading Wrap-up
I got back from my week away just in time to post my April reading wrap-up. April started off as a bad month and I didn’t think I’d get much done. A couple of books took me ages to finish. Thankfully, I ended up on a high having made up some ground. Find out what I finished by reading my post.
- Our Hideous Progeny by C.E. McGill
I’ve had this ARC for a while and had almost forgotten about it. I decided to try and get it finished on my holiday. I love Frankenstein and am always interested in what other writers do with it. This sounded good but didn’t quite work for me. Turns out, a feminist retelling of a classic isn’t always going to be a good thing.
- The Mysterious Case of the Alperton Angels by Janice Hallett
I really enjoyed The Appeal but thought her second book was disappointing. So, this was going to be the decider. If I enjoyed it, I’d give Janice Hallett another chance. If I didn’t then that was it. No more of her books. Having finished it, I’m still not sure so I’ll wait until I get my review written to say more.
- Tomorrow, And Tomorrow, And Tomorrow by Gabrielle Zevin
This is one of those books that everyone was raving about. Something I didn’t necessarily pay attention to unit a friend of mine did it too. She’s the kind of person I trust so I decided to finally get around to it. Hopefully, I can keep up the momentum now I’m back home.
The only books I bought this week were presents. I don’t need more books right now.
- No TV on holiday. Every evening was spent reading. Something I should try to keep up now I’m home but I definitely won’t.

I might read Tomorrow and Tomorrow just because I’m genuinely curious of what it about. Then again there a lot of books that everyone else likes but I don’t.

Yeah, I always worry about hyped books. So often I find that I don’t like the most popular books. Although, it never seems to stop me trying them!
