The weather this week has been lovely, so I am admittedly a little pink in places due to sitting in my garden with a good book for far too long around midday. Apart from that nothing noteworthy has happened.
Swimming Lessons by Claire Fuller – I really enjoyed this book, but was left feeling a bit unsatisfied with a few elements near the end.
The Copenhagan Affair by Amulya Malladi – Totally chick lit and light reading, not normally my sort of thing but I did enjoy it, the constant product placements were a bit aggravating though.
I haven’t finished it but I have finally given up on Shadowless by Hasan Ali Toptaş – I am not sure if it was a translation thing or if Turkish readers like books that are overly dreamlike and make no sense. I can’t cope with 300 pages of metaphor. My personal rule is that if I am not invested after 100 pages with a book, then it is just not worth it. .On the plus side i found instructions on how to create a Did No Finish shelf on goodreads in their help files, very useful.
I have finished a few of the books that I was reading last week and have resisted starting any more till I get a few more of these finished. So I have got my reading list down to a far more respectable four. Nearly finished the Bedlam Stacks, fab book.
I have been posting a bit more than normal this week, not sure if I am going to be able to keep it up but I will try.

Due to the big blogger little blogger project developed from over at the well thumbed reader my big blogger May aka the Mango Queen over at Forever and Everly is kindly letting me do a guest post over at her fabulous blog. That is planned to go out on Monday and I think it is going to be a discussion post on what I have learned in the (for me short) time of being a book blogger. I am really looking forward to the discussion and am hoping that I will learn something.
