My Week In Books (w/e 10th Jan) #booklove #bookupdates #MeAndMyBooks

Welcome to another weekly bookish round-up, well I say bookish but I’ve also been watching stuff as well! Another slightly quiet week as far as reading goes, also a week that was definitely on the “dark side”!

A while ago I binged on The Mandalorian on the Disney Channel, and then decided to re-watch the Star Wars Films. It definitely helped with understanding The Mandalorian . I have stuck with the main films and so far havewatched the Original Trilogy, The Prequel Trilogy and am currently on The Sequel Trilogy. I didn’t realise just how many other spin off’s and other films there actually was until I started to look for the chronological order!

Last week I mentioned the new version of Stephen King’s The Stand, I watched the first episode on Starz and I enjoyed it, so far so good. Slightly different timeline format to the original but still very enjoyable so I am definitely going to stick with it.

BOOKS…

So the Dark Side with the films, The Stand features the Dark Man and the reading this week has been more on the darker side of crime fiction.

Forgotten Lives by Ray Britain is a fair lump of a read at just over 400 pages, with every page very worth it. One that I really, really enjoyed. It is the second book in the series and yes I do wish I had read that one first, but Forgotten Lives does work very well as a stand alone. Keep an eye out for the review soon.

I almost missed reading this one in time and I am so glad of an email that was sent out a few days before the tour was due to start! Dishonoured by Jem Tugwell is a cracking read, twisted, full of dead ends, brilliantly written and had me absolutely hooked. I am so glad I read this in time and you can see my full review HERE.

All done for another week, I do have a couple of books on the go at the moment. I don’t often read more than one book, but one is a cookery book… its an excuse that is as good as any! 😂😂

Happy Reading folks, and have a good week ahead.

    1. I’m in complete agreement with you Nicki. None of the other films come close to matching the original. The prequel was ok, the sequels I wasn’t that fussed with at all! xx

  1. I’ve watched a few eps of The Stand so far, and have some ‘issues’ with it, though I like how the timeline goes back and forth. But I am enjoying it!

    1. It’s always a hard call when you enjoy the original of something and then it is remade. I did notice some changes in the second episode that I watched last night that took me by surprise though!
