My Week In Books (w/e 21st August 2022 #booklove #bookupdates #MeAndMyBooks

Welcome to another weekly update of books I have read. This week has been so much cooler, we have had proper wet rain rather than that mizzzerly stuff. The grass is green again and things in the garden are just looking so much better. After a proper rain wash, they are looking clean and not so drab. Not that I have had much time to spend outside as I have been pulling kitchen units apart and putting new ones in. It’s going to take ages to get used to where everything is now. I seem to spend more time opening and closing doors trying to work out where something is, before I get to the end of the cupboards I forgot what I wanted in the first place! I know I am not going to be alone in this either ๐Ÿ˜‚

I have been to the dentist this week for an extraction. My jaw still feels bruised and there is some infection on the site, I do have gum disease so this is not surprising really, but at least it is getting better and I don’t look like a hamster with a cheek full of food… I kid you not. At least a hamster looks cute!

One of my new orchids has decided to flower, this is one that I bought earlier this year and it has two flowering stems on it so I am delighted with that. The Dendrobium that I bought last year has started to flower as well, the orchid behind it is one that has either been flowering or has had flower buds on it for over a year now.

Here are the books I have read…

The Natural Navigator by Tristan Gooley – ok I didn’t read this one but I did listen to it. A very comprehensive look into navigation over history and to the present day. Ideal as a starting point as this does cover a lot, you can then choose further reading if you want more information about a particular way of navigating. An interesting one to listen to and one I really enjoyed.

The Darkest Sin by D. V. Bishop – Oh Wow! This was an amazing read and it is the 2nd boo in the Cesare Aldo series, and yes you really do need to read the first book. This one is on my Top Reads of the Year List. Murder, mystery, secrets, historical fiction and I loved it.

The Rules of Everything by Richard Templar – is a book that is a bit different for me, non-fiction about life choices, behaviour and living. The author has taken the Top 10 rules from his other books and condensed them into this one. The full review should be later this week.

There we go another three-book week this week. I have one more book to read for the #20booksofsummer reading challenge and I think I have three reviews to publish for it as well as a couple of other reviews.

I hope you all have a great week,

Happy Reading

  1. Sorry to hear about the tooth. Or lack thereof ๐Ÿค”. Would have liked to have seen your hamster impersonation though ๐Ÿ˜‚.

    Super excited to see you’re loving the Cesare Aldo series as much as I am! xx
