Weekly Wrap-Up (15 Jan)

Weekly Wrap up SQUARE copyrighted

I’ve had a really good reading and blogging week this week so I’m happy at that. My real life has been a bit up and down with another bad fall on Friday that has increased my pain levels. It could have been so much worse though as I had a glass in my hand at the time but thankfully didn’t cut myself. The increased pain has meant I’ve not managed to be around on social media, or to reply to comments on my blog as much as I would have liked to have been over the weekend. I will get around to replying as soon as I can but please know that I do always very much appreciate  comments and shares.

This week I’ve finished reading five books:

Relativity by Antonia Hayes (review book)

Landline by Rainbow Rowell

How Much The Heart Can Hold by Carys Bray et al. (review book)

Swimming Lessons by Claire Fuller (review book)

Lies by TM Logan (review book)


This week I’ve blogged seven times:

Sunday: Weekly Wrap-Up (8 Jan)

Monday: 2017 Reading Plans and the State of My TBR

Tuesday: Review of Behind Her Eyes by Sarah Pinborough

Wednesday: WWW Wednesday (11 Jan)

Thursday: Review of Everything You Told Me by Lucy Dawson

Friday: Review of Spider from Mars: My Life with Bowie by Woody Woodmansey

Saturday: Stacking the Shelves (14 Jan)


This is what I’m currently reading:

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

The Age of Bowie by Paul Morley

The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver

Howards End is on the Landing: A Year of Reading from Home by Susan Hill

Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

Her Every Fear by Peter Swanson (review book)



Last week I wrote a post about the state of my TBR and how I wanted to try and focus on reading the books I already own this year. You can read that post here. To keep myself motivated I’m going to update my numbers as part of my weekly wrap-up post from now on.

Update on my TBR

TBR at the start of January 2017: 1885

Books added this week: 4

TBR now stands at: 1887 (due to my having now started reading two more books off my TBR since the four new books were added)

  1. I’ve been reading the Neapolitan novels by Elena Ferrante. On the final one now. Also The Natural World off Winnie The Pooh by Kathryn Aalto, the first in my A-Z of Devon authors challenge. A wonderful biography of Milne, exploration of the Pooh stories and journey through the natural world of Ashdown Forest and the Hundred Acre Wood.

    • I have the Neapolitan novels on my TBR but haven’t got around to them as yet. Would you recommend them? I love the sound of The Natural World of Winnie the Pooh – I’m going to add that to my wishlist. I’d not heard of it before so I’m really glad you told me about it.

  2. Sorry to hear you had another fall! I hope you’ll soon be out of pain. You’ve had a good week of reading, though – such a great variety of books! Here’s to a good week to come!

    • Thank you. I went a while without a fall and then I’ve had quite a few in the last couple of months. It’s just part of my condition but it’s scary with my neck being so fragile. I’m doing better now though, my pain levels are more normal now. The Susan Hill book is a lovely one to dip in and out of, I’d recommend it. I find her fiction hit and miss but this book is a great one for book lovers.

  3. Glad you had a good week but sorry about the fall! Hope you feel better soon…

    Landline is one I should read. I’ve been trying to decide which Rainbow book to read next and I think that one is winning… 🙂

    Her Every Fear looks suspenseful!

  4. So sorry to hear about your fall and I hope you’re okay. But I’m glad the rest of the week went well and your reading and blogging is going well. Take care. xxx

  5. I’m reading, “Josephus Flavius: The Complete Works.” It makes me realize how wars are a never-ending thing, and how they are driven by a man’s ambition and pride. A total waste of the lives of their followers.
