Watching what I’m reading . . .

Another weekend draws to a close here in New Zealand. I really don’t know where this one went. There’s a distinct nip in the air when the sun goes behind the clouds, and the first of the leaves are beginning to colour.

I got the plans for my new kitchen on Friday, and I love it. I am going to take a couple of hours out of work on Wednesday and go pick my bench top, cupboards, etc. So excited!

I am about to start reading Dear Neighbour by Anna Willett.

I am listening to The Whole Truth by Cara Hunter

This week I am also planning on reading Whoever Fights Monsters by Angelo Marcos.

You’d kill to protect your family. The question is… how many times?

Three men are about to begin the worst bombing campaign in history, targeting schools in order to kill as many innocent children as they can.

One night, the mysterious Aurora appears and tells family man Nathaniel Bennett three things.

Firstly, that his daughter will be one of the victims.

Secondly, that he is the only one who can stop these atrocities from happening.

Thirdly, to stop them he’ll have to kill all three of the men. If even one is left alive, the bombings will still happen and hundreds of children – including his daughter – will die.

We follow Nathaniel as he wrestles with his mission – and himself. Is he a soldier following orders and saving children, or is he the monster, stalking and killing three men who – so far – have done nothing wrong?

And, to the rest of the world – and the police – does it even make a difference?

This week I received a Publisher’s widget for Sleepless by Romy Hausmann

A Netgalley ARC for The Restarting Point by Marci Bolden

and one audiobook ARC, Mrs Wiggins by Mary Monroe

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!β€πŸ“š

I love good quality chocolate. I love the ocean and love to be in, on or beside it. I read any and every where. I am a proud mum and Nana. I like wine, gin, Southern Comfort, a cold Heineken on a hot day. I am very versatile like that. I cross stitch, do jigsaws, garden, and work on a farm. I am an occasional scribbled. I have far too many books I want to read to ever find the time to die.

  1. So exciting that your new kitchen is so close to becoming reality, Sandy. I hope there are not too many choices that you can’t decide. I am jealous, the Romy Haussman book isn’t showing up for me. Enjoy them all and I hope you have some time to read this week. πŸ“šπŸ’œπŸŒž

    1. I don’t think it’s available on Netgalley yet Carla. It was a publisher’s widget. β€πŸ“š Planning on lunch out at a nice cafe after I have been to the Kitchen people. Just me and a book. 😍

    1. The plan they came up with for the kitchen is awesome. Now it’s just colour and material. I figure if Carla can endure a winter in Canada rather than Florida, I can’t wimp out over a New Zealand winter. πŸ₯ΆπŸ€£πŸ˜‚

  3. We had someone come in to give us an estimate on redoing the kitchen & two bathrooms. Our house is 40 years old and has need of updating!

    Do we may be doing the same project at the same time! Take photos of before and after.

    Your weather sounds great. Perfect for rich stews and hearty meals.
    Love the cover of the Marci Bolden book.

    1. Our house was built in 1970 and this is the original kitchen. But it has been hacked around by various owners over the years. It’s totally impractical, and a nightmare to work in. There’s no bench space either side of the stove top which drives me insane. Our bathroom is going to have to wait a while. We want to replace all the 50 year old aluminium joinery with double glazing so that the heat isn’t escaping and the wind isn’t whistling in over winter. Looking forward to your before and after photos Tina. Any idea when they are starting?
