Sunday Update #6

 

♥ Sunday Update ♥

Hi bookworms, happy Sunday! I hope you are all safe, well and enjoying your weekend so far.

So this weeks plans went down the pan! I started off really strong Monday and Tuesday, hit all of my work goals and didn’t leave anything left unfinished and then it all went downhill from there.

My oldest son came home from school on Wednesday with a high temperature and body aches and so we had to go into self isolation and do a covid test. The results came back really quickly (the next day by lunchtime) but by that point the whole house had basically lost two full days.

I missed a few blog posts that I had wanted to do but I did take part in two blog tours for two fantastic books so that was fun.

Story of Season Pioneers of Olive Town was released on Friday and I have to admit I have been playing that an awful lot over the weekend and this is the first time I’ve really sat at my computer to write anything since then.

In terms of reading its actually been a bit slow and I have only finished two books. What Beauty There is and A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder. I must admit that A Good Girls Guide I practically read in one sitting, it was that good that I immediately bought the second book in the series so I can’t wait to get stuck into that.

I also finally started The Poppy War series yesterday and I am already over 50% of the way through and really enjoying it so far. I bought the audiobook as well so that I don’t have to stop reading when I am playing on my switch!

Hope you are all having a great week!
