Hello!! Happy September!! How has that happened?! Spotted any Christmas decorations out and about yet?! A local garden centre has already opened their Christmas department.... so scary!!
Been a lovely week which included a Bank Holiday here in the UK, and thankfully the weather was rather lovely so that meant I got to visit one of my favourite gardens at Ulting Wick, which was open for the NGS Open Garden scheme. Gorgeous gardens, tea and yummy cake (lemon & lavender!) .... that's all I need for a happy day out!!
And on the book front things have picked up a little too after a slight dip last week! Managed to finish 3 books, had a little NetGalley clicking spree (oops!) and currently have 4 books on the go! Never a dull moment when there are books to be read! So here's a quick look back at my bookish week! Slightly behind on reviews so click on the titles for a link to the GoodReads blurbs!
The Lion Tamer Who Lost by Louise Beech - 5 stars
File this under books that made me cry! Beautiful!! Full review to follow on Blog Tour at the end of September!
Street Cat Blues by Alison O'Leary - 4 stars
A crime solving cat with attitude! Such a fun read!
The Map Of Us by Jules Preston - 4 stars
A quirky, original novel that I really enjoyed!
Netgalley is evil and can never be 'browsed' unless you are under close supervision! Will I ever learn?! Nope!!
