This week....

I'm reading

I am quite sure how I had enough energy but I did finish a couple of books last week. Maybe it's the reading I am doing in the middle of the night when I can't sleep thanks to work issues.

This week I read two books that I am going to review later this week. The first was A Single Act of Kindness by Samantha Tonge. I have read a number of this author's books and this is up there with the best from her!

I also read The French Cooking School by Caroline James. It should be pretty obvious why I was attracted to this book. I mean France and foodie reads! My idea of a good read!!

Speaking of France and food, I started Mastering the Art of French Murder by Colleen Cambridge. This is the current Cooking the Books selection and it features Julia Child as one of the characters!

I'm Watching

Masterchef Australia is back baby! I will be very interested to see how this season goes as there are three new judges this year.


Whilst I am collapsing into bed each night and therefore not doing a lot, we did manage to have a fancy lunch. One of my step-daughters is moving to the UK for a while so we went to a lovely buffet restaurant in the city yesterday. There will be several other farewell events this weekend 

I've linked this post to It's Monday, what are you reading? as hosted by Book Date


  1. Love the look of that fancy lunch! Enjoy your books and your week, and here's mine: WEEKLY UPDATES

    1. That was just part of the fancy lunch!

  2. Sounds like a good week despite the work stress. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

    1. Yes, that is just one aspect of life right.

  3. I put a hold on Mastering the Art of French Murder as an audiobook. When it came available I was swamped with other books. Hopefully when it next appears I will have my reading life better under control!

  4. Enjoy the farewell events with your daughter. And I hope you can get more sleep. I know how that goes.
