The Week in Books: May 2 – May 8

Well I’m actually quite pleased with myself this week I have to say. At the start of the week I was worried that having already written about two books that I read early inthe week that I wouldn’t have any options for what to write about tomorrow, but I’m delighted to report that that is not the case. Especially after my nice chilled weekend recovering from the election coverage. And for once, I’ve been reading stuff that’s about to be released, as it’s about to be released. Check me. Ok so the still reading list is looooong, but you can’t have everything. I’ll work on that this week.


Count Your Lucky Stars by Alexandria Bellefleur

The Agathas by Kathleen Glasgow and Liz Lawson*

Dead and Gone by Charlaine Harris

Murder in the Dark by Kerry Greenwood

I don’t think I bought anything. So a double win this week. Unless I’ve forgotten something, the only book that turned up this week was a pre-order. Check me again.

Bonus photo: I went for my first run around the park in a few weeks on Sunday, and the trees were looking gorgeous in the sunshine. Maybe it’s time to crack out the summer work wardrobe!
