This week....

 I'm reading...

I don't always read the emails I get from Book Riot, but every now and again a headline catches my attention. And so it was that a couple of weeks ago there was an article titled The Best Romance Books You've Never Heard Of introduced me to a book called Along for the Ride, which I had never heard of. It was the debut novel of Mimi Grace, and I really enjoyed it. I will definitely try to read more from Mimi Grace.

After finishing that book I was thinking about what I might read next, contemplating several options, until suddenly I realised that I have a blog tour post coming up. Probably should read that book then, right?

That means that my next read is going to be Elodie's Library of Second Chances by Rebecca Raisin!

I'm watching...

It's another weekend of Sail GP so we watched some sailing. We have now booked our flights ready for Christchurch in March which is super exciting! And slowly I think I am beginning to understand the sailing a little bit. Certainly I can appreciate the speeds, the crashes, the near misses and more.

Otherwise, I have so many things to watch and yet nothing is really catching my attention. We watched a couple of episodes of Umbrella Academay, I watched the first episode of Call my Agent, I still have Virgin River, Outlander, a few episodes of Sweet Magnolias, the second season of Emily in Paris and so many more to watch, but I can't really settle on anything right now.


It's been a frustrating week. We thought we were getting a dog, but now we aren't. We thought we would get the keys to the new house on Thursday, and then Friday, but we didn't. And we still haven't sold this house.

  1. I hope this week is less frustrating for you. I get the Book Riot email too, but usually delete it unread. I'm always afraid of finding books that I just have to read right now. (I already have a couple of thousand unread books.) Come see my week here. Happy reading!

    1. You and me both Kathy! And yet, I still buy more.

  2. I watched some sailing during the Olympics and found it kind of relaxing! :) I don't know much about the actual sport of sailing (the rules and whatever) but it was fun to watch.

    I hope everything lines up for you soonish!
