The Rules can be found here. And this week's post can be found here.
The week was fairly uneventful, but I've been reading a lot and have lots of reviews lined up. Today we spent the day bathing in Hampstead Heath, London.
In July I'm participating in two events: One is Camp NaNoWriMo, where it's all about writing, and the other is Run Around The World, where it's all about running as many miles as possible in the month of July. In fact, the idea is that your team manages to run the distance around the world. 2 miles done, a million to go.
Last week on my blog
Review: Everything About You by Heather Child which is a science fiction novel about a young woman whose virtual assistant adopts her dead sister's personality. Freaky, very much for Black Mirror fans.
Review: A Station on the Path to Somewhere Better by Benjamin Wood. A literary thriller, written as a memoir from the point of view of a twelve-year old boy who is embarking on a road trip with his father that will end in utter disaster traumatising the boy.
Review: A Star Reckoner's Lot by Darrell Drake. A heroine that is bad at her job, magic inspired by astronomy, essentially pulled from stars and planets and the setting is ancient Iran. Definitely worth a look for fantasy fans.
Review: Sleep, Merel, Sleep by Silke Stein. A great middle grade novel that young children will enjoy (and adults, and parents, it's a great little book!)
In my kitchen
I've also made a post about what's going on in my kitchen and how to make asparagus topped with ricotta and salmon. You can find the post here.
My own writing
Finally, I've shared a small piece of flash fiction. It's about a small robot, a household helper, and his anxiety. You can find it here. Let me know if you like it!
At the cinema
I've watched Ocean's 8 and it was a lot of fun. I recommend it to anyone who loves heist stories. Especially Helena Bonham Carter was fantastic. The others as well, but I just have such a soft spot for Helena Bonham Carter. (Don't worry, I did notice Cate Blanchett wearing suits!)
I'm currently reading quite a few books at the same time, and I can't wait to review them. I love when I can read in the garden while this wonderful weather continues to kill my beautiful lawn leaving nothing but a brown, dry mess. I hope everyone has a great weekend!
