Weekly Wrap-Up (9 April)

Weekly Wrap up SQUARE copyrighted

This week I’ve had a quiet week due to not feeling well so I don’t really have anything news to share on here. So on with the books and stuff…

This week I’ve finished reading 3 books:

Good as Gone by Amy Gentry

I read this book in one sitting last week and very much enjoyed it. It was a gripping read and I recommend it. I reviewed it for the blog tour yesterday so you can read my review here if you’d like to.

Deconstructing Dirty Dancing by Stephen Lee Naish

I wasn’t sure about reading this but I decided to give it a go. It was fairly enjoyable but I’m not sure it’s what I thought it was going to be. I’m planning to review this soon so look out for that.

One of Us by Asne Seierstad

I was struggling to read this book so I bought the audio book this week and found it worked better for me on audio. It’s a really tough subject matter but very well-written. I’m possibly going to write a review on it if I can get my thoughts together.

This week I’ve blogged six times:

Sunday: Weekly Wrap-Up

Monday: March Wrap-Up 

Tuesday: A guest post by author Lynda Renham on changing genre for her new novel, Remember Me

Wednesday: WWW Wednesday post

Saturday: Stacking the Shelves post

                   Review of Good as Gone by Amy Gentry


This is what I’m currently reading:

How to Survive a Plague by David France

I started reading this a couple of days ago and am finding it fascinating. It’s a long book so I think it’ll be one I’m reading on and off for a little while but I know it’s going to be a book I get a lot out of.

The Cows by Dawn O’Porter

I’m absolutely loving this book. I’ve very nearly finished it and will really miss it once I have finished it. I’m on the blog tour for this book this week so look out for my review on the 12 April as part of the tour.

Sweet Pea by C.J. Skuse

I finally had the strength in my hands to pick this back up yesterday and I’ve been engrossed in it for much of the weekend so far. It’s such a good read, I recommend it.

The Power by Naomi Alderman

This is my current audio book and I’m not too far off finishing this one either. I love the concept of the novel and I’m enjoying it but it’s not keeping me hooked as much as I thought it would.

  1. your stamina never ceases to amaze me! If you dont mind me asking, do you work in the book industry or fit this blog in around a different life? The only writer I’m familiar with from your blog is Naomi Alderman – I read Disobedience and loved it. Have a great week

  2. Glad to hear you got some reading done, even if you weren’t really feeling well. And I know what you mean about finding a book tough to read, but still worth it. I’ll be interested in your review once you get to it.

  3. I love your TBR stats. I’d be afraid to even look at mine that closely!

    I’m hoping you review One of Us. It’s a book I keep looking at, but then am not quite sure I want to go there. Maybe your thoughts would help. I like nonfiction on audio, so if I go with it, I’ll listen rather than read.

    • Thank you. It’s the first year that I’ve looked at my stats and I’m enjoying seeing how my reading is going.
      I am planning to review One of Us, it’s just a struggle to get my thoughts down at the moment. I’d recommend the book, and I found it easier to listen to the audio than to read it.

  4. I’m really looking forward to your review of The Cows – in the meantime, enjoy what’s left of the week-end and I hope you have a better week.

  5. One of Us is one of the best books I read last year. So powerful and so well told, even if, as you say, it’s tough stuff.

    I ‘know’ Amy Gentry via book reviewing circles on Facebook, so I’m glad you enjoyed her book.
