This week has a quiet one due to all the medication changes I have going on, and this alongside the hot weather has floored me over the last few days. I’m just taking things as they come at the moment and will be doing so for the next week or two at least. I do have some posts scheduled on my blog so they will still appear, and will be tweeted and posted on Facebook but I’ll only be around occasionally as and when I feel up to it. I really appreciate all of you for bearing with me in the meantime.
This week I’ve finished reading three books:
I loved every minute that I spent reading this novel, it just really grabbed me and I could identify so much with both of the main characters in the book. I’ve already reviewed this book so you can read my thoughts on it here if you’d like to.
Eleanor by Jason Gurley
This was my latest pick from my pre-2017 TBR and while it turned out to be not what I was expecting, I did enjoy it. There was more sci-fi elements to the book than I thought there would be but it was an interesting novel and I’m glad I read it.
This book is stunning. I was hooked from the very first page and I feel quite bereft at having finished it. Eleanor Oliphant is one of those characters that gets under your skin and I’m sure she’ll stay with me for a very long time to come. I’ve also already reviewed this book so you can find that here if you want to read more about what I thought of it.
This week I’ve blogged six times:
Sunday: Weekly Wrap-Up post
Wednesday: WWW Wednesday post
Saturday: Stacking the Shelves post
This is what I’m currently reading:
Letting Go by Alex Hanscombe
This is an incredibly moving and interesting memoir written by the son of Rachel Nickell, the young mum who was murdered on Wimbledon Common as her 3 year old watched on. Alex is such a pragmatic and thoughtful man and it’s very inspiring to read how he came to terms with losing his mother in such an horrific way.
Based on a True Story by Delphine de Vigan
I’ve been really looking forward to reading this book and it absolutely doesn’t disappoint. Every time I pick this book up I get completely enthralled and am fascinated by this book.
Into the Water by Paula Hawkins
This is such a good read, I’m really enjoying reading it.
How to Survive a Plague by David France
I’ve been reading more of this book this week and have got so engrossed in it that it’s taken me away from my other books.
