Sunday Summary: 15 March 2020

It’s been a sort of week, that’s for sure. With Corona virus restrictions firmly in place now everything seems to have slowed down somehow. My husband is working from home for the forseeable future and I have been having a cold, so I have to try and restrict my contact with others, even though I am pretty sure it’s NOT the freaking virus! I have also just been told my daughter’s school is closing for the next three weeks and there will be some sort of home education. We will see what happens.

Luckily, my local supermarket was still pretty well stocked and people around here do not seem to be hamstering’ much. I only noticed there was a distinct lack of eggs and tissues. Surprising, the toiletpaper situation seemed to be fine

The endless rain seems to have finally given way to a drier spell. which I am soooo happy about. Now, if only we would have a few sunny days to help dry out the land – that would be awesome!

READING

I have been mood reading via prompts this month, but the quality of my chosen reads has been very patchy. I may forgo using prompts for the rest of the month and just mood read, concentrating on more recent purchases. I am not quite sure yet.

Also, I finished a series, so I can start a new one! I have been thinking about which one to start. I want to hold off on the Mistborn series for another couple of months, so I have narrowed it down to either the Hyddenworld series by William Horwood, the Raven Son series by Nicholas Kotar, the Lockwood & Co series by Jonathan Stroud or The Rivers of London series by Ben Aaronovitch. I have the first books in the latter two series and I own the complete Hyddenworld series because I love William Horwood! I have the first two books of the Raven Son series on my Kindle as well. I am really excited about all of these. so which one to start? I will decide after finishing my current reads.

 

I am about 50 pages into Life After Life by Kate Atkinson and so far I am into it! It gives me a headache to be fair, but I am so curious to see where this story is going to take me.

I have also tentatively started A Princess in Theory by Alyssa Cole, which is another adult romance that I have heard lots of good things about. I started it on a whim on my Kindle and I am only a few pages in.  I hope I will like it!

I think I will be finishing Educated by Tara Westover in the next day or two, which I have been listening to on audio. It’s been an good listen, even if it has not been quite as interesting as I expected.
