This Week...


I'm reading...

I made a bit of a strategic mistake this week. I started listening to Book Lovers by Emily Henry on Wednesday morning, thinking I would listen for an hour or so. However, it was so good that I found it very, very distracting. And then the same thing happened on Friday! I really enjoyed the performance of Julia Whelan, the narrator and I loved the story! I have read Henry's last three books now as they came out but I will now be going further into her backlist!

Today I started listening to Terry Pratchett's Hogfather. I did listen to it last year but I feel the need to listen to it again

I'm watching....

On the good side of the equation, we binge watched the full first season of Only Murders in the building! what a fun series. I fully expect that we will be watching season 2 this week, and then we will be eagerly waiting for season 3.

On the less good side of the equation, we also watched a movie called Uncharted. It had a big name cast - Tom Holland, Mark Wahlberg and Antonio Banderas for starters -  but it wasn't great. The movie is based on a video game. I did find myself wondering whether it is the same for gamers as it is for readers with the sentiment that the book is (pretty much most of the time) better than the movie.


We did something a little different on Thursday. We went to a candlelight and music event which was held in a former church in the inner city. We listened to a string quartet playing the music of Hans Zimmer (plus a couple of John Williams songs). It was such a lovely way to spend an hour.

  1. I enjoyed Book Lovers when I read it. I bet it is wonderful as an audiobook. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  2. Ack! I need to watch the second season of Only Murders! I keep forgetting to watch it, although right now it will have to wait until I catch up with The Crown. My husband doesn't want to watch Only Murders, which cuts down my opportunities, but I'll get to it! - Melinda @ A Web of Stories

    1. I expect that we will get to Only Murders next week, maybe.

  3. You just never know sometimes with shows! And the music event sounds awesome.

  4. It was a really pleasant way to spend an hour

  5. I'm going to check out Only Murders. Yes sometimes we get carried away watching or listening to something and spend more time than we realized.
