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 good week for my blog. I was thrilled to notice in my blog stats that March was my best month ever for views and likes; it beat my previous best which was back in November. I also wrote a blog post, which I don’t often do anymore, about how I’d realised I was keeping a lot of my books for the right moment but then because I’d had them for so long the pressure was really on for that right moment to be perfect. It ended up being one of the most popular posts on my blog so that was a real boost for me. You can read that post here. I’m now trying to come up with a way of challenging myself to make sure I start reading those books as and when – if you have any ideas about this, please share in the comments below.
I’ve had an up and down week otherwise. I’ve been told at the hospital that I’m overdoing things and need to cut back on some of my activities so this is something I need to work on. It’s hard for me as reading and blogging are my main activities and I really don’t feel like I want to cut back on either of them as they give me such a sense of achievement in my day. Having said that, my pain is affecting my concentration and a couple of days this week I didn’t manage to read anything at all so I definitely need to find a better balance. If you have any ideas about managing time better then please share those in the comments below too.
This week I’ve finished reading three books:
The Good Mother by A.L. Bird
This was a really good read; it was fast-paced and very difficult to put down. I hope to have my review ready to post this week at some point.
I enjoyed reading The Stylist but had hoped for more from it. You can read my review here.
The Swimming Pool by Louise Candlish
I only finished reading this late last night so haven’t fully processed what I thought of it as yet but it’s definitely a book not to be missed! It’s a real page turner. I hope to review this book on my blog in the next week or so.
I’ve blogged eight times this week:
Sunday: Weekly Wrap-Up Post
Tuesday: Review: The Missing by C.L. Taylor
Wednesday: WWW Wednesday Post
Thursday: Review: The Stylist by Rosie Nixon
Thursday: March Wrap-Up Post
Saturday: Stacking the Shelves Post
Coming soon on my blog:
I have a couple of reviews and interviews almost written up that I hope to share on my blog this week. I don’t have a definite schedule though as a lot is happening this week and I’m not sure how much I’ll be able to post.
Here’s what I’m currently reading:
In The Light of What We See by Sarah Painter
Dear Dad by Giselle Green
Truth, Lies and O-Rings by Allan J. McDonald and James R. Hansen
