Hello and welcome to my weekly round-up. Actually, this is a round-up from the past two weeks. Last week I took an unscheduled and very unexpected week off from my blog so I have some catching up to do.
Last Saturday I tested positive for Covid, my husband then tested positive on Tuesday so we have both been isolated. He is the one with the dodgy immune system and he luckily didn’t suffer as much as I did. I had all the symptoms, temp, cold, aching, constant headache and feeling really tired, I have spent a lot of time sleeping. For him, he has the cold side of it with a temp. It is so annoying as we have both been super careful, had all our jabs and haven’t been going out anywhere.
It seems that the trend now is for people to spread it around as restrictions are lifted even further and isolation time is reduced. While I do understand the theory behind herd immunity, it is however having some very drastic effects in the workplace. I am still suffering the effects of this virus and still have the cold, headache and fatigue, but the temp has gone.
You may think as I have had almost 10 days off, as I write this, that I would have read a good amount of books. Truth is, I have read possibly a little less than normal. Again another symptom of Covid is that I felt a lack of motivation to do much at all. I think this is down to the tiredness. So here is what I have read over the past two weeks…
The Girl Beyond the Gate by Becca Day – thriller, intriguing, full of suspense. Great read.
The Patient by Tim Sullivan – police procedure, crime, thriller brilliant
The Castaways by Lucy Clarke – twisted, devious, thriller. Great read.
The Dark Queens by Shelley Puhak – non-fiction, early dark ages, history, bloody and brilliant.
Blood Sentence by Keith Nixon – police procedural, crime, twisted and first book in series. Excellent read.
What’s Next by Shari Low – contemporary, fiction, family and friendship. Enjoyed it a lot.
City of Vengeance by D.V. Bishop – historical fiction, murder mystery, atmospheric. Looking forward to reading the next in this series.
So there we go 7 books over two weeks, not too bad really considering.
Wishing everyone a great week ahead,
Many thanks for reading my post, a like or share would be amazing 🙂 xx
