My Week In Books (w/e 25 Aug) #MeAndMyBooks #BookNews

Welcome once again to my weekly wrap-up of the books I have read or am reading this week.

The weather is actually behaving and is like it should be. It’s sunny (ish) it’s warm and there is a yellow heat warning out, this means a 60% chance of really hot weather, no call me a cynic, but it is August Bank Holiday in the UK… that’s all I’m saying. It seems to be all or nothing at the moment…

So let’s have a look and see what I read this week…

My first book is a series that many readers and Book Bloggers will know all about. I have several books by this author and have only just got around to picking up the first in the series…

Silent Scream by Angela Marsons

Well I have to say I love Kim Stone, feisty, determined, strong willed and a fabulous character to finally meet. I was so impressed with this first book and I can see why fellow Book Bloggers absolutely rave about Angela Marson’s books. I am so glad I have started this series and the best bit is that there are several more books to read ๐Ÿ˜


Next is for a Blog Tour, I was given the chance to read the full collection for this Tour, the collection is 3 books and… well let me show you…

The Boxer Boys Collection by Nick Rippington

This is the Boxer Boys Collection and it is three books that follow the lives of the Boxer Boys gang. Getting to know the boys, their families and the routes they take through life was so interesting. Yes at times it is as you would expect, but the author does not go into blood and gore with some of the things that go on. This was a surprising series for me because it wasn’t what I was expecting. It is about family and friendship as well as the gang stuff. It’s also about growing up in the shadow of your father and being branded the same as him.

I am looking forward to reviewing this series as part of the blog tour in the first week of September.


Currently Reading

I am currently reading another book for a Blog Tour, this one is for…

There is no cover for it yet not on Goodreads either watch for the Blog Tour that starts at the beginning of September…

It is for the 2nd in the Battle ground Series by Rachel Churcher. A YA/dystopian that I am really enjoying, and its good to find out what is going on with the teens that I met in the first book.


Other stuff…

I am picking raspberries everyday and they are doing great, only a few are ready each day but I do freeze them, I have a good couple of pounds in the freezer at the moment… I can’t wait to turn them into my own “Almost seedless Raspberry Jam”! Almost seedless because I always manage to get some seeds through ๐Ÿ˜…

OH has been busy with the rotivator now that all the potatoes, carrots, beetroot and onions have been harvested. He does a good job with rotivating and keeps straighter line than what I do! ๐Ÿ˜‚


Well as they say “That’s All Folks!”

Wishing everyone a fabulous week and hope you all have a good Bank Holiday! I am on a night-shift on Monday (tonight) so I am making the most of today (Sunday) … ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜

All the best Yvonne xx
