This is is Meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer and here are the rules.

It is your chance to re-cap your bookish week, what did your review last week, any new purchases, what will be coming up in your blog next week or generally anything you feel you would like to share with the blogging community.



So, what did I do last week? 

Not a lot actually. Well, apart from working.  But I made a point this week of not doing any overtime and left on time every day (my 'normal' hours would be 8am-4pm). I felt so much more relaxed in the evenings, coming home in time  (my commute is about 1.5 hours. And I managed to post every day! The weather has certainly turned here last week, it's so much colder. Temperatures are mid 30's during night and  no higher than 50 during the day - definitely not weather to enjoy sitting in the back yard.


Finish - Start

I finished 2 books last week
  • Journey into the Mystic by Jesse Giles Christiansen
  • Celebr8 Success by Gill Donnell (non-fiction)
Review on both are to follow.

I started reading:

  • Under the Dragon's Claw by Alex George


This book is outside my unusual genres, I haven't read about dragons and mystical creatures for a while (apart from HP I suppose). But that's why I love being a book reviewer / blogger to stretch myself to genres outside my comfort zone. I've just started the book and getting into it.
