This week....

I'm reading....

It's been a few weeks since I participated in It's Monday! What are you Reading? mainly because I have been crazy busy at work, but today I have had a day off so time to get back on track.

I have been reading a bit this week which is nice. I have read the first two books in the Murderbot series by Martha Wells, and the third one is calling my name right now. Sci-fi is not normally my jam, but I have to say these books are a lot of fun, and I can see myself blasting my way through the rest of the series quite quickly.

Today I finished reading The Cartographer's Secret by Tea Cooper which I thoroughly enjoyed. I think it is my third five star read of the year, all of which have been by Australian authors.

As to what I am going to read next, it might by the next Murderbot book or maybe I should pace myself a little bit more!

I'm Watching

Over the last few weeks we have watched and enjoyed Shadow and Bone which was very enjoyable. 

This weekend we started watching Atlantic Crossing. So far we have watched two episodes and I am looking forward to seeing what happens. It's interesting to see a different story to those that we have all heard about WWII.

We also watched a few episodes of Stan Lee's Lucky Man. Originally I was thinking about watching Bloodlands but that is showing only one episode per week so one of my workmates suggested watching Lucky Man as both shows star James Nesbitt. This is one that my husband and I will continue to watch together.


We should have been in Auckland this weekend for a few days as a birthday celebration (hint: it's not for my husband and it does end with a 0!) but unfortunately we went back into lockdown so no weekend away for us!  We did still have a nice day. We started with pancakes for breakfast, a walk along the beach (which fortunately is JUST within our 10km range) and then I read my book and watch some TV tonight! Day done!
