Each Sunday I will be rounding up my week and linking up with The Sunday Post hosted by Kimberley @Caffeinated Reviewer as well as The Sunday Salon meme hosted by the wonderful Deb @Readerbuzz. Do please pop by their blogs and show them a little love 💗.
Life Last Week
Well, the reading year started with a DNF, thankfully it was a library book so it was no great loss. It was also back to work after a very relaxing and pleasant Christmas break. However beautiful sunsets and rainbows were welcome treats from nature.
It was back to work on Tuesday and despite having only a few students in things were as busy as ever. I did stick to my goal of leaving work at work and even if it means staying late I can still totally switch off my brain when I get home. We’ve had a mixed bag of weather, going from having doors and windows open a week ago to ice and snow on Friday. Today has dawned with clear blue skies so hopefully, we will get some time outside.
Last Weeks Books
I was really looking forward to a Cornwall based romance but sadly the pace was lacking and the author definitely had a habit of telling rather than showing, so I ended up DNF’ing An Endless Cornish Summer.
I enjoyed the other two books, Neon Blue in particular is one I would recommend for those who love PNR/Urban Fantasy.
Can’t live without them.
Can’t unsummon them.
I tried living without him. I lost my powers. I slogged through days of dust. I couldn’t do it.
I called him back and he rose through the Gate on wings of flame. Wings no fire demon has ever had before.
I don’t know who I am anymore. I don’t know who he is. But I know some very powerful entities do not want us to be together.
As above, so below. War is coming, to both our planes.
Publisher’s Note: Blood Yellow is not a standalone. Neon Blue should be read first for most enjoyment. Blood Yellow contains themes and situations that are for mature readers only.
Looking forward to…
… choosing where to go for our first short break in 2022.
… all the wonderful adventures that 2022 has in store.
… celebrating my MIL’s birthday.
