The Results: Oh my lordy lord how is it this time of the week already? Yes, we’re at the results stage and may I just tell you mine are ABYSMAL! Only really compared to my expectations: I had planned on having Instagram mastered by this way (whereas I practically didn’t visit let alone study it) and I had decided to get through 4 books whereas I ended up starting a book I won’t finish (we are going out on our first long walk today , only second time out with the whole family since lockdown, wohoo!!!)
So I read two books this week as part of the challenge:
Samantha Tonge-The Summer Island Swap (review here) length 368 pages
and Jenny Rabe’ Something Old (The Fake Engagement Series book 1 review here) length 250 pages
So Jenny Rabe’s book was part of a new twist 4 of us went for this week: Because we didn’t know what the book was going to be (hurrah for Jenny Rabe’s excellent book, what a relief I loved it so much!!!) there was 15 points to be had if we read and reviewed by midnight Friday so at least I know I have that! Wohoo!
Reviews for both were left on Amazon and have now been left on Goodreads too. Samantha Tonge’s book just (by a smidgen) pipped Ms Rabe’s to the post but all in all I had the loveliest time reading both which was what was important.
I’m going to be a chicken and because of said 15 points, say, for this week at least, I’m not going to roll the dice. I’ll stick with my points.
But I’ve so many plans for next week (smile wanes just a minute). No honestly, next week I am going to bring it. Um… yes.. okay. (wanders off trying to condsider next week’s tactics(;))
Have a good weekend everyone, I’m off for a walk!!!!!
