I’ve spent a ridiculous amount of time tweaking things on the blog that I doubt anyone but me will look at. I’ve added follow links to the sidebar, so please give them a click, and I’ll be running a celebratory giveaway tomorrow, so keep your eyes out.
This week I finished This Coven Won’t Break on audio at long last. It just wasn’t as good as the first book, which had a cute romance and a dash of mystery that the sequel was lacking. I also didn’t like the audiobook narrator, she sounded a bit annoyed all the way through and then did a squeaky voice for the trans kid, like she didn’t know what to do with him.
I also read Maxwell’s Demon, the new book by the author of The Raw Shark Texts, which is out today. Go read my review. Yup, I posted two reviews this week. I know, what has got into me? I hereby recommend giving your blog a makeover to rejuvenate your blog mojo.
With January out the way, lets look at some of my reading stats. I read 12 books (although one of these was technically a short story), with 6 by BAME authors and my average rating was 3.9. This averaged out at 122 page read per day, which sounds about right. I also acquired 12 books, so the first month in a long time that my TBR didn’t grow. I mean, it didn’t shrink either but… *shrugs*
I was all set to announce completion of my Discworld puzzle of The Shades, which I got for Christmas, but the final piece is MISSING! It has stolen my moment of satisfaction. The little blighter.
Other than that disappointment I thought it was a great puzzle, lots of interest, no large swathes of one colour and well cut pieces. Discworld Emporium is all sold out at the moment but I will probably try another when they come back in stock.

Even if StoryGraph has gotten better I still haven't forgiven it for importing all the wrong editions of my books. It was also a bit lonely.Follow
