Time Travel Thursday

It’s Time Travel Thursday! This is where I take a look back at what I was reading this time last year (or the year before or the year before that…) and compare it to what I am reading now.

This day in 2021 I was reading:

Book Description From Goodreads:

“Jo Finnegan is attacked while leaving work one evening by criminals threatening her more harm if she does not provide them with information she doesn’t have.

When she gets home, Jo finds her sister dead in her front room, and her wife missing. When the police arrive and arrest her, while she is still in shock from the events of the night, Jo realises she’s been framed for her sister’s murder. But that’s only the beginning of her nightmare.”

Book Review – Kill Me Goodbye by A K Reynolds

Fast Forward To Today:

Letters from Father Christmas by JRR Tolkien (click for link to Goodreads)

My current TBR shelf book, which I need to make more progress on this week!

Emily Wilde’s Encyclopaedia of Faeries by Heather Fawcett (click for link to Goodreads)

This is my current Blog Tour book, review due on 13 January 2023.

Comparison:

Completely different books from Thriller to Christmas and Fantasy! The only thing that is similar is that the Thriller and Fantasy are Blog Tour books!

What else has been happening this week:

SNOW! We only had it for one night, but as it has been so cold it hasn’t melted and has turned into ice. It is very dangerous out there. We aren’t prepared for this sort of weather! My son even had two days off school and even when we returned it wasn’t entirely safe.

This week was my son’s last week before the Christmas holidays so on Wednesday we got to see his nativity. He was the lamb (one of three). After school on Thursday we went to a Garden Centre that does amazing Christmas decorations. It took us a long time to get there and back due to the adverse weather conditions, but we had a nice chocolate whilst we were there and enjoyed the Christmas! This weekend we went shopping and today I (with my partner and son!) am meeting up with a friend.

I hope that you had a good week!

Sunday Post

Welcome to my Sunday post hosted by Caffeinated Reviewer. A very quiet week this week as I’ve tried to have a chilled week! We had a load of snow last week, which for this part of the UK is rare. It has been a nightmare slipping to and from school – the school was even closed for a couple of days. We just aren’t prepared for this sort of weather.

Anyway, here are this week’s posts:
