Weekly Wrap-Up (8 Jan 2017)

Weekly Wrap up SQUARE copyrighted


It’s been ages since I’ve done a weekly wrap-up post but I really want to get back into doing them on a more regular basis as I always used to enjoy putting them together.

I don’t have much news this week apart from what I’ve been reading. I have really enjoyed blogging most days over the past week, it’s been a while since I had so much to post. I’m hoping to get some reviews scheduled for the next week or so.

This week I’ve read five books:


Spiders From Mars by Woody Woodmansey

And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie

The Girl by Samantha Geimer

Everything You Told Me by Lucy Dawson

Wishful Drinking by Carrie Fisher (audio book)


This week I’ve blogged five times:


Tuesday: My Top Ten Fiction Reads 2016


Wednesday: My Top Ten Non-Fiction Reads 2016


Thursday: My Christmas Book Haul


Friday: My Reading Bingo Results 2016

Stacking the Shelves

Saturday: Stacking the Shelves (7 Jan 2016)


This is what I’m currently reading:


Swimming Lessons by Claire Fuller (review ebook)

Landline by Rainbow Rowell

Loving the Life Less Lived by Gail Marie Mitchell (review book)

Relativity by Antonia Hayes (review book)

The Age of Bowie by Paul Morley

The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver

    • It was a very good reading week for me – I tend to read a lot in the first week or two of the year as I always attempt to start as I mean to go on. Did you enjoy The Catcher in the Rye? I really enjoyed it when I read it. The Book Thief is a great read, I hope you enjoy reading it.

  1. Great to see you getting back into the swing of things, I’d have buried myself in your book haul and not found time to do anything! Looking forward to Swimming Lessons which is also on my review list. Happy Reading x

  2. You’ve had a very busy blogging and reading week! I’m quite impressed. And I really like the different sort of books you’re reading. Wishing you a good week this week.

  3. That’s an excellent reading and blogging week, Hayley. Glad you had such a successful one and hope that this coming week is just as successful:)

    • I’ve never seen the show Wishful Drinking but the book was brilliant. It was poignant listening to it now but it was lovely to hear her tell the stories of her life. The Girl was a really interesting read, it was much more than I even thought it was going to be. I’m enjoying Landline, it’s my first full-length Rainbow Rowell novel but I love her writing so will probably read more of her books in the future.

    • Thank you, it’s good to be back. I had a lot of spare time this week so I made use of it by reading a lot and writing up some blog posts. I don’t think I could get so much done in a normal week so it’ll be back to normal from now on.

  4. I liked the Rainbow Rowell book I read. and I’ve never read And Then there Were none, although I’ve seen the TV adaptation (or one of them anyway). I’m kind of curious about Relativity…

    • And Then There Were None was a really good read – I can’t believe I hadn’t read it before now. I’ve never seen a TV adaptation but I think I would watch next time there’s one on. I’m about 90 pages into Relativity and it’s really enjoyable. It’s a family drama with lots of astronomy in the mix.

  5. A few familiar books there and a few new ones. I love how you list that you’re reading several books at one. I’m a really monogamous reader so only one at a time – unless I’m working through some kind of self-help book (which I’m doing with The Artist’s Way!)

    • I’ve always been one for having multiple books on the go at once. I like always being in the middle of a variety of books so I can pick up whichever one I’m most in the mood to read. I never read books of the same genre at the same time though as that does get a bit confusing. I love The Artist’s Way – I first read it years ago and I often go back to my copy. I hope you’re enjoying it and finding it useful.
