Welcome to The Weekly Epilogue! Hope you all had a good week?

My slump continued this week and I felt all adrift because of it….but then my son saved the day! He bought home Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets from the library and I gorged it in 1 day!

But unfortunately my good book luck didn’t go any further as I didn’t start or finish anything else! I did watch Avengers: Infinity Wars though (was excellent!)

Does anyone get periods like this? Apart from The Chamber of Secrets I’ve read nothing in about a week. It’s so not like me.

BOOKS I READ

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by JK Rowling

 

WHAT I’M CURRENTLY READING

Nothing. #bookplanfailure

Welcome to The Weekly Epilogue! Hope you all had a good week?

I’ve been in a small slump this week, I think my excitement over binge reading the Throne of Glass series has made me crash but I did read an arc of a totally different genre so am hoping that’s jump started me back in!

I got my hair all cut off and donated it to a kids cancer charity, 7 inches of hair gone. Feels so much lighter too! My son started film club so I’m excited to see what he learns. If only he would join a book club!!!

This pic is a bit of a white lie as this isn’t a Weekly Epilogue, it’s a bi-weekly…here is why……

I haven’t posted a weekly epilogue in a few weeks, only due to time and not having any! I pondered on the idea of whether to do a monthly recap for September or a bi-weekly sum up but my need to blog was greater so here I am with a bi-weekly for now!

I have only signed up for 2 arcs in September and currently have none scheduled in for the rest of the year, am hoping to keep it that way so I can finish my Beat the Backlist challenge and start off some new series that I have sitting on my tbr.

Anyway, I’m rambling!

I’ve had a great few weeks reading wise, 10 books!

Crew by Tijan

One Last Wish by Aurora Rose Reynolds (novella)

Welcome to The Weekly Epilogue! Hope you all had a good week?

Back to work after my week off and I so did not want to go, but it was ok! On my day off me and my son went to watch Hotel Transylvania 3, it was so good!!!

It was a great reading week too, 3 books! But…..I got an arc from Read First and I had to read on Adobe Digital Editions and it was hard work! I just couldn’t figure out how to get it on my Kindle! Then disaster struck! See below!

BOOKS I READ

Irrevocable by Addison Jane

This author can certainly write an MC Romance! See my review in my Monthly Mini reviews soon!

Wild Like The Wind by Kristen Ashley

Chaos is one of my favourite MC Romance series ever (yes a bold statement!) See my review here.

Seafire by Natalie C Parker

I scored an arc and I was so happy! I read around 50% AND THEN THEY EXPIRED THE BOOK! It was so annoying! Now I have to wait till release day to find out what bloody happens!

Welcome to The Weekly Epilogue! Hope you all had a good week?

I started off with such a bad reading week but thankfully it got better!

Firstly, I had to dnf a book and then I picked up another and didn’t like that either! I actually thought I was broken as I never really DNF books.
