♥ Sunday Update ♥

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

I’ve had a rubbish end to the week as I caught my first cold in 17 months! November 2019 was the last time that I was sick and so I think that I have sort of forgotten what it is like to be sick and I am not handling it so well.

As usual I’ve passed a lot of the week reading up until the past few days where my poorly head has just not really allowed for me to do much that involved looking at things for too long. Thank god for audiobooks though! I finished The Night Circus which was a wonderful, magic read and I made a start on my buddy read of The Colour of Magic. We are reading about 100 pages a week and reviewing the book at the end of the month so looking forward to that! So since I was feeling sorry for myself I did my typical movie binge and got wrapped up in a blanket and watched all four of the Hunger Games movies. It has been a long time since I watched them and I’d forgotten how much I love them!

In brighter news I was looking through my Amazon Orders and realised that one of my daughters birthday presents never arrived and it showed on the order page as lost so I requested a refund and had £32 refunded to my gift card balance so we all know what that means don’t we? The gang @TheWriteReads are such book enablers so I blame them entirely for encouraging me to buy new books when I have no room for them nor the time to even read the ones I have but oh well! I think I’ll share my little haul with you next week because I did also put in a WHS order when they had a Spring discount code so yeah… so much for the book buying ban. I’ll do better next month!

That’s all from me for this week! Here’s hoping that next week is a happier and healthier one!

    1. So true! I had a few of them delivered already and reorganised all my shelves today to accommodate them all lol. Can’t wait to share them all with you, there’s some good ones!

  1. Sorry to hear about the cold! Hope you’ve been doing better with it! Colds can be such a pain!

  2. Sorry about your cold! Gosh, it’s been a long time for me too. Thanks to quarantine but I’m sure it means that once we are around more people we will have to build up that immune system again. I hope you are feeling better! I can’t wait to see a book haul!! <3

    1. Thank you! I am feeling a lot better now,, just a lingering cough now but it’s not so bad! I am hoping to get the last of my new books delivered today and book haul maybe tomorrow or Friday?! Excited!
