My Week In Books (w/e 9th October 2022) #bookupdates #inthegarden #booknews #MeAndMyBooks

Hello and welcome to another weekly book round-up. Before I get to the books, I have had the week off work and it was a gorgeous week to take off. Me and He had a day out in Falmouth and had Fish and Chips, we can’t remember the last time we had this!

I also managed a couple of days out myself and took myself down to a local beach. Kynance Cove is a site run by the National Trust, a nice stroll down to the cafe overlooking the beach is great on a windy yet sunny day. Not too many people and great to blow a few cobwebs away.

I also spent some time in the garden, and there are still so many flowers in full bloom, especially the Dahlias. I also noticed some of my roses have started to bud up again. It was a great chance to re-establish one of the borders and get the bed back under control again.

Now let’s have a look at the books I have read…

The Empire by Michael Ball – (yes THE Michael Ball) is a fabulous debut book and one that I adored. The stage, behind the scenes, the rivalry and so much more make the theatre known as The Empire such an addictive book to read. I am so glad I spotted the Blog Tour for this one and managed to get a spot. Full review in a couple of weeks.

The Night Watch by Neil Lancaster – this is the 3rd book in this series and true to form, this is the first one I have read!

Keeping the Christmas Promise by Jo Thomas – I know better than to start one of this author’s books when I go to bed! Once started I could not put this one down until 2am because I had run out of book to read. This is a wonderful adventure story and one that has avalanches, power cuts and friends having to look at what they want to do with their lives. Full review to follow soon.

The Botanist by M.W. Craven – this is an amazing read in the Washington Poe series, and yes I have read all of the books in the series and in the right order ๐Ÿ™‚ This one is about people being poisoned, a close friend being arrested and a killer who can get past the tightest security. Full review to follow soon.

WOW! 6 books this week, I don’t know how I managed that ๐Ÿ™‚ just shows what having a week off work can do ๐Ÿ™‚

With the exception of The Empire, all these books are from my TBR, a mix of owned and NetGalley ones. All very interesting and I will get the review posted over the next couple of weeks.

Have a fabulous week ahead,

All the best
