Weekly Roundup

Posted August 1, 2020 by Nicky in General / 17 Comments

Well, folks, it’s been quite the week. No new books, and we’ve been in quarantine after Lisa (my wife) developed some potential-COVID symptoms. We’ve both tested negative now and she’s on the mend, but phew it’s been tiring.

Linking up with The Sunday Post @ The Caffeinated Reviewer and Stacking the Shelves @ Reading Reality & Tynga’s Reviews.

So here’s what I have managed to read (not bad, though they were short!):

Books read this week:

Cover of Return of the Earl by Sandra Schwab Cover of Alike As Two Bees by Elin Gregory Cover of The Secret Lives of Colour by Kassia St Clair

Reviews posted this week:

Other posts:

  • WWW Wednesday. A quick update, mostly mentioning the books above.
  • Hobbit Birthday. Giveaway still going on! Open worldwide; £50 to spend at Portal Bookshop for one winner, £15 for two others. (It’s possible to figure out a different bookshop if Portal don’t ship to you!)

So that’s me for the week. How’s everyone else doing?

    I bought my sister The Secret Lives of Colour a couple of years ago and she loved it. (She trained in colour chemistry.)

    • I bet if I was more interested in chemistry it’d work better for me, too… as it was, I found it entertaining but not riveting, y’know?

      • Robert Burston

        Yeah, it was the perfect choice for her but I thought it was most likely a book with niche appeal only. I haven’t read it myself.

    • Yep! Especially since the whole ordeal started with an early wake-up on a Sunday morning with her just shaking hard! It was really unsettling. Thanks for dropping by. 😀

    • We went stargazing — twice — so that was pretty good, though we didn’t get as much sleep as I’d like! Heh. Thanks for dropping by!

  2. Thank goodness your wife tested negative. I hope she’s feeling better from whatever it was. I had to get tested myself a week or so ago after being informed that I was possibly exposed. I, too, was negative thankfully.

    At least you got some good reading done last week. Stay safe!

    • Yeah, we quickly got to that point of “well, I doubt it is… but we’d better be safe”. Such a tiring week, since we had to try and isolate from each other… in a tiny flat! Hope the toddler’s better soon. 🙂
