Sunday Wrap-Up ~~ 2022 Week #46 Semi Hiatus

Welcome to my weekly round-up post where I link up with The Sunday Post hosted by Kimberley @Caffeinated Reviewer as well as The Sunday Salon meme hosted by the wonderful Deb @Readerbuzz. Please pop by their blogs and show them a little love 💗.


Life Last Week

My continuing apologies for not replying to comments and visiting blogs lately. I am feeling more able to drop by your blogs and leave comments and will be doing more of that today as there are quite a few of your blogs that I need to catch up with.

The weather has been pretty mild and we still have plants flowering in the garden that should have finished and been pulled up over a month ago. It does mean we don’t need to have the heating on as long as we normally would, which means I’m struggling to dry laundry but the positive is it’s keeping those dreaded fuel bills down.


Last Weeks Books

I’ve been pretty tired this week, dozing on the sofa by 8 pm most evenings, so I didn’t get a lot of reading done. Ghost Talker is a murder mystery with a hint of a slow-burn romance, I can’t wait for the next book in the series! Talk Bookish to Me didn’t work for me, the plot felt forced and I didn’t care for many of the characters. It was a library book so I didn’t feel too bad DNF’ing it. Under the Mistletoe was another library book and, despite my wanting to give the heroine a shake for being so pessimistic, I very much enjoyed this one too.


Currently Reading

When Addie La Rue makes a pact with the devil, she trades her soul for immortality. But there’s always a price – the devil takes away her place in the world, cursing her to be forgotten by everyone.
Addie flees her tiny home town in 18th-Century France, beginning a journey that takes her across the world, learning to live a life where no one remembers her and everything she owns is lost and broken. Existing only as a muse for artists throughout history, she learns to fall in love anew every single day.
Her only companion on this journey is her dark devil with hypnotic green eyes, who visits her each year on the anniversary of their deal. Alone in the world, Addie has no choice but to confront him, to understand him, maybe to beat him.
Until one day, in a second hand bookshop in Manhattan, Addie meets someone who remembers her. Suddenly thrust back into a real, normal life, Addie realises she can’t escape her fate forever.


Looking forward to…


… visiting blogs.

… reading good books.

… enjoying warming casseroles from the slow cooker.

  1. Oh, I totally understand about not being able to reply to comments or comment on other blogs. This last month with my arm in so much pain, I haven’t been as diligent either. Fortunately, my arm’s feeling much better now. I hope whatever busyness your feeling lets up soon.

    The picture with the bird and bird feeder is absolutely gorgeous. I love the focus, colors, and composition. Great job!

  4. I really enjoyed Talk Bookish to Me, but I remember when I read it that another reviewer I usually agree with gave it a poor rating. For some reason it hit the right notes with me while it didn’t with others I generally align with. I hope what you have on tap will agree with you more than last week’s reads.

    1. I feel Addie LaRue could have been halved without losing anything. I enjoyed it but it would have been an outstanding read had the pace not felt so slow.

  5. Sorry you are still feeling so run down. I hope you get more energy and time soon! I had a very fun weekend with my daughter, mom, sister, and nieces… we all went to New York City and did so much (walked like 18,000+ steps each day).
