I’m linking this post up to Kimberly at Caffeinated Book Reviewer’s Sunday Blog Share. It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog and showcase books and things we have received. Share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.
This week has been a busy week for me with a lot of things that have really taken it out of me but it’s been a productive week too.
The biggest and best thing to happen this week was that I got my stairlift installed! I can’t quite put into words how much happier I feel already at being able to get down the stairs. It’s wonderful and I now wish I hadn’t resisted for so long. Finally being able to spend time in a different room of the house has been lovely but it’s really taken it out of me, I’ve been exhausted the last couple of days. It was worth it this week though just to experience the freedom of getting down the stairs again.
Due to the busy week and increased pain levels and fatigue I haven’t managed to read as much as I would have liked this week. I have still being able to read for a little while on most days though, which I’m pleased about. I hate when I have whole days where I don’t manage to read anything at all.
This week I’ve read three books:
When She Was Bad by Tammy Cohen
You Sent Me a Letter by Lucy Dawson I reviewed this book on my blog on Friday so you can read it HERE if you’d like to.
Ghostbird by Carol Lovekin I’ll be sharing my review of this book on my blog tomorrow as part of the blog tour so please look out for that.
I’ve managed to blog seven times this week, which I’m very happy about. I miss blogging on the times when I’m not able to.
Sunday: Weekly Wrap-Up Post
Monday: Q&A with Andy Owen (author of East of Coker)
Wednesday: WWW Wednesday post
Thursday: Review of The Butcher’s Hook by Janet Ellis
Cover reveal for The Joyce Girl by Annabel Abbs
Friday: Review of You Sent Me A Letter by Lucy Dawson
Saturday: Stacking the Shelves post
Coming soon on my blog:
Monday: I’m on the blog tour for Ghostbird by Carol Lovekin so will be able to share my review of this wonderful novel and also a Q&A with the author herself!
I haven’t got the rest of my blog week scheduled yet but I do know that I will have a Q&A with author Caroline James, and I have some reviews to write and post too of books that I’ve read over the last couple of weeks.
Here’s what I’m currently reading:
The Missing by C. L. Taylor
The One-in-a-Million Boy by Monica Wood
Truth, Lies and O-Rings by Allan J. McDonald and James R. Hansen
The Stylist by Rosie Nixon
The Day of Second Chances by Julie Cohen

So glad to heae the stairlift is making a difference for you x
Thank you. I feel like I’ve got a new lease of life just from being able to go up and down stairs whenever I want to, it’s brilliant. x
Feat news about the stairlift. It will be really good for you to be elsewhere and will be good for your husband too. Such a shame you are in so much pain. I’ve had a few bad days this week too.
I have hardly read this week as couldn’t concentrate. Hopefully I will next week.
Have a great week x
Thanks so much. I’ve had to reply on my husband to do so much for me this week – thank goodness for having some blog stuff scheduled in advance. I’m sorry you’ve not been able to read much this week, I hope next week is a better one for you. x
I like the look of When She Was Bad… so keen to hear what you thought of that. And will check out your review of The Butcher’s Hook as I’ve put that aside for ‘when I have more time’.
Yay for having your stairlift installed and I’m glad it’s made you more mobile at home!
I hope you enjoy The Butcher’s Hook if you decide to read it. Thank you.
Good news about the stairlift which gives you some mobility and independence back. Hope the pain eases soon. I can recommend The Day of Second Chances which might help to distract you.
Thanks so much. It’s good to know the book’s good – I started it and then had a bad few days where I didn’t manage to read further but I’m looking forward to getting back to it now.
I read it earlier this year before they put the publication date back so I’m sitting on my review. It was the first book in a long time that I didn’t want to put down. Hope it grabs you as well.
Thank you, I plan to read more of it this afternoon as I have a quiet day ahead today. 🙂
You did much better blogging last week than I did. Glad the stairlift is working out!
So pleased to hear about your stairlift being installed, Hayley, and the positive difference it’s made 🙂 X
Thank you so much 🙂 x
When She Was Bad looks very tempting….I hope you have a great week, and I’m glad about the stairlift, too.
Here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES
I’ve heard great things about Tammy Cohen. I’m looking forward to hearing you what you think of this book!
I hope to review it soon on my blog. 🙂
Sounds like a good week all round for you, personally and blogging wise. I have The Missing on my list to read. It sounds good!
I’ve not been able to read much the last few days but I plan to get back to The Missing today as I can’t wait to read more, it’s really good.
Great about the stair lift! Hope you have a good week – you seem to get an amazing amount of reading (and reviewing) done even when not feeling so good – inspirational!
Thank you. I’ve always been quite a fast reader and I’ve always turned to books for escape when life isn’t going so well so I think it’s just become the norm for me to keep reading. The really bad days with pain stop me reading though but I do try to have an audiobook for those days so there’s a distraction while I’m lying down resting.
