Well what a week this has been! One that I don’t want to repeat that is for sure. I had a ridiculous cough that really wasn’t shifting and left me feeling… well like crap if I am honest. After a few days of it not getting any better I finally went to the Doc’s and been diagnosed with Acute Bronchitis, never had it before and never want it again. I am still struggling with shortness of breath, sleepless nights and feeling rough. I was hoping the steroid tablets and inhaler would help more than they are but at least I am not coughing as much.
So as my husband finally gets the thumbs up to go back to work after being signed off on Sick Pay since the beginning of August, it is now my turn to go off sick! Roll on January that is all I can say!!!!
I have still managed to just about keep up with NaNoWriMo and my short stories, though I have missed a couple of days, I just didn’t feel any motivation. Also I decided that it would probably be better to complete the on-line courses that I am required to complete as part of my job.
So enough of my whinging and moaning, after all you are here for the books 🙂
What I read this week…
It’s Not PMS, It’s You by Rich Amooi
If you have not come across Rich Amooi then take my word for it whern I say you should. This is the second book I have read by Rich and he is fabulous. He is on point with his stories and also the humour he injects into his writing. Keep an eye out for the Blog Tour for my review.
The Wronged Daughter by Mary Wood
This is an author who I adore, whether she writes under Mary Wood or Maggie Mason it makes no odds I love her books. They are historical fiction that are full of emotion, surprises, twists and are simply fabulous reading. Again another Blog Tour review, for the end of the month.
The Blog Tours that I have agreed to take part in for November are now all read, so instead of ploughing straight into Decembers Tour books I decided this was the ideal time to beta read a couple of manuscripts. I don’t beta read often, and I am always a little nervous about doing it. But I also like to get the chance to give a reader opinion.
My Next read…
The Poker Game by Peter Bartram
I have read a few of Peter’s books and always enjoy them. I am looking forward to getting stuck into Book 4 of the Deadline Murder Series ready for the Blog Tour in December.
I also had a sneaky peep at this book …

Hope you’re feeling better really soon Yvonne, sounds really nasty! I’ve not had acute bronchitis, but I used to get really bad coughs that stopped me sleeping, so you have my full sympathy. Xxx

Thanks Nicki, it is just so tiring and I think that is what is so annoying! Hopefully I will be back to my version of “normal” soon 😉😁

Hope you are better soon. In spite of the temptation of NaNoWriMo, you probably are wise to focus on the online course. Best of luck with both.
