Our Week in Books #31

It’s August already, and I haven’t finished June’s #bookadayuk. Sniffle. I’d really like to get those six out of the way before we’re off on hols so I can take more review books in the hope of getting more written (ha!)

Too many books again this week. On the bright side, I won’t be able to purchase anything when we are in the middle of nowhere. Also it was my birthday this week so I’m allowed 😉

I’m in an overwhelmed feeling mood (if that makes any sense) so not writing much today. Need to get a review to a friend, and sort out the gazillion piles of books all over the house and… brain melt at to-do list …and breathe. Mustn’t forget to breathe. Mustn’t forget to post things either. Got lots to post.
