Its been the first week of the kids summer holidays, and of course the first thing my daughter did, is get sick, with high fevers and all that. She got better for Wednesday and Thursday and now she is sick again, not sure why. I also ended up working both Saturday and Sunday long days due to the weather my OH normally goes to a motor-cross track with his motorbike on Saturday but this was cancelled so I worked instead.
I haven’t finished one book this week, no not one. That is very poor but hey being stuck at home with a sick child kinda is the best excuse I can come up with.
Due to the fact that I haven’t finished any book, these 6 are the same I was reading last week.
The Sixteen Trees of the Somme Lars Mytting – My first requested hardback ARC from Bookbridgr and its great. Beautifully written and translated from the Norwegian with what seems to be quite a twisty plot, and it is pretty interesting. So far it has been about rural Norway and the Shetland islands.
A Month by the Sea: Encounters in Gaza by Dervla Murphy – I haven’t picked this up much this week, just not in the mood.
The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo by Amy Schumer – I may not finish this as I am getting a bit sick of her congratulating herself for giving money to her friends.
A Man of Shadows (John Nyquist, #1) by Jeff Noon – I have got a bit further into this book, but I am still not really into it.
Ewan Pendle and the White Wraith by Shaun Hume is still the bedtime story for my daughter, and we are making some progress.
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë is the audio-book that I am listening too in the car and other places. I am loving it so far, just had Mr Rochester and the fire and not sure what is going on but can’t wait to find out.
I have got 30 more followers over the past week which is wonderful, and done my first ever tag. I was planning on continuing with my Friday Favorite thing but I wrote a post about the Booker Prize Longlist instead.
Monday – Review – Daring To Drive
Tuesday – Mid Year (a bit late) Freak Out
Thursday – Review – Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine
I am just going to wing it next week as I have ended up working two long days over the weekend and therefore are not all scheduled, never mind.
I will be linking this to the Sunday post over at the Caffeinated book reviewer and then It’s Monday What are you Reading at The Book Date.
