Sunday Rundown

What have you been reading this week?

I’m running a little behind this week thanks to a particularly hectic weekend. Well, a hectic Saturday that ended in a Eurovision party and a Sunday spent recovering. Meaning I’m late getting my weekly rundown written. Not that there’s much to report. I’ve only just finished the book I was reading last week because work pretty much destroyed me last week. I had no energy for reading beyond two chapters a night. I need to get back on form this week.

Weekly Blog Posts

  • BOOK REVIEW – Our Hideous Progeny by C.E. McGill

It’s been a while since I last requested something on Netgalley so I admit that my shelf has been a little neglected of late. I’d completely forgotten that I’d been sent a copy of this book and felt guilty enough to pick it up before my holiday. Read my review to find out if I regretted not reading this sooner.

  • FILM REVIEW – Bullet Train (2022)

I’ve never been keen on the Disney live-action remakes so I normally would have given this one a miss. However, I was in a bit of a Peter Pan mood following my recent trip to Moat Brae: the birthplace of Peter Pan. Read my review to see if this remake was one of the better remakes.

  • BOOK REVIEW – The Mysterious Case of the Alperton Angels by Janice Hallett

It took me ages to write this review. So long that I had to post it late. I just didn’t know how I felt. Janice Hallett’s debut novel was so much fun but her second left me cold. I so wanted this to reach the same heights as The Appeal. Find out if it did by reading my review.

Just Read

  • Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow by Gabrielle Zevin

Hyped books. I just shouldn’t read them. It always ends up taking me ages to finish. This one started out so well but the last week has been super slow going. There was a point when I never thought I’d get to the end. Not that U wasn’t enjoying it. It just didn’t grab me enough to

  • Villains Academy by Ryan Hammond

After Birnam Wood, I needed something quick and easy to read. This was the perfect choice. A middle grade story about a school for villains. Not only did I finish it in a matter of hours but it was just a lot of fun silliness. The kind of book that I’d have loved as a kid.

Currently Reading

  • Our Hideous Progeny by C. E. McGill

I wasn’t really sure what to pick up next because of the holiday. So I went onto my Kindle and remembered that I had this ARC to get through. I decided it was probably time to take a look. I’ll hopefully finish it fairly quickly when I’m away so I can fit in plenty more reading.

Book Haul

To kill time, I went into my local bookshop during my lunch one day last week. Of course I walked out of there with a book. Although, in my defence it’s a collection of flash fiction that is raising money to fight fuel poverty. It’s called Fuel and all of the stories are prize-winners. I’m excited about it.

Recently Watched

  • TV:
    • Bridgerton – Netflix is constantly pushing the Bridgerton prequel on us and I’ve tried to ignore it. It didn’t work as I decided it was time to watch season 2 of the popular series. Of course, I had to rewatch the first season before I did that.
