My Week In Books (w/e 7th May 2023) #booklove #bookupdates #MeAndMyBooks

Hello and welcome to my update of books I have read over the past week. For the past couple of weeks, I have only managed 2 books each week, this week I managed 4! Don’t ask me how ๐Ÿค”

I have a couple of photos of the garden, well this time of year it would not be right if I didn’t.

I bought a laurel tree and also an azalea last month and it is lovely to see them settled and getting ready to flower. I also love the white daisy bush, I know it’s some sort of aster but I can’t remember which one. For a small flower though it definitely does make a good show. Last week I had my first picking of asparagus. I have been waiting for some of the plants for years as I grew them from seed.

Now, time for the books…

No Easy Answers by Robert Crouch – this is a brilliant series and the latest one really does have Kent Fisher having to make some tough decisions. Full review tomorrow.

The Science of Gardening – discover how your garden really grows by Dr Stuart Farrimond yes this book does have science in the title but it is not an overly science-based book. It does have mentions but not in a taxing and brain cell-steaming way. What the author brings to this book is how and why certain things are more beneficial than others. Some of it is common knowledge and other stuff that is easy to understand and makes sense. Full review to follow in a couple of weeks or so.

The Medici Murders by David Hewson – this is a fabulous mix of historical fact and fiction. A modern-day setting with trips back into history. Full review on Wednesday as part of the Blog Tour.

The Predators by Tony J Forder – this is the 2nd book in the DS Royston Chase series and it is a fabulous and quite complex story. The author lays out his murder and then leaves his team to investigate, he does not make it easy for them. A brilliant 2nd book and if you are looking for a tough crime thriller and police procedural series to start then this one is great as you don’t have many books to read to get up to speed.

There we have it, four books and all wonderful reads.

I am going to be around for a couple of days this week and then I am off up country to see my Mum. I won’t be on social media and I have managed to leave a clean sheet for while I am away with no Blog Tours. That is more luck than judgement I might add.

Wishing everyone a fabulous couple of weeks and I will see you all when I get back.

Take Care Happy Reading

  1. I have an app on my phone called Google Lens which I use to identify plants with. Granted, it doesn’t always get it right. I apparently have something in my garden that only grows in the Caribbean but still … It might help. ๐Ÿ˜‚

    Must get my hands on that Hewson book. Sounds right up my street.

    1. I use a planty identifier app and most of the time it gets it right and to be honest I could nty be bothered to go back down the garden to id it. I know it is an aster and from Australia/ New Zealand though ๐Ÿคฃ
      I did then try google lens and it worked on the photo I had and named it as a Olearia so that was ideal. It does seem to be a very good app for allsorts of stuff so a huge thanks you for that ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜
