Apparently all this unseasonal weather has triggered the hayfever season early. Where I live there are a lot of birch trees and so there has been sneezing from me and Scully. Well, at least it means spring is here and we have seedlings popping up for tomatoes and beans already. I sowed some sweet peas and sunflowers at the weekend, to add some flowers amongst the crops.
I’m taking part in the relaxed Around the Year readathon on Goodreads this week, although I don’t feel I’m being that helpful to my team by reading a slow paced, fantasy brick. I am enjoying The Kingdom of Copper, I’m just being slow for some reason.
I rounded up all my new books for February *gulp* and, if you’re in Europe, make sure you check out this week’s giveaway. It will be my 8 year blogoversary this month, so I’ll be thinking of something to do for that too.
This Week I Finished:
The Salt Path by Raynor Winn ☆☆☆
This focused a lot on the couple’s personal tragedy and less on the beauty of the South West Coastal Path. I don’t think I was in the right mood for it.
ATY: 50. A book that includes a journey
Romeo and/or Juliet by Ryan North ☆☆☆
A bit of silly fun, definitely aimed at younger readers. I followed two paths with happy endings and then read through the original plot (which really wasn’t that fun).
POPSUGAR: 42. A “choose-your-own-adventure” book
The Siren by Kiera Cass ☆☆☆
Cheesy romance but just what I needed.
This Week’s Reviews:
The Migration by Helen Marshall [GIFTED] ☆☆☆☆☆
Black Leopard, Red Wolf by Marlon James ☆☆☆
Reading: The Kingdom of Copper by S.A. Chakraborty
Listening to: Eat Up by Ruby Tandoh
