We are a mere 13 days into 2017, and already I am having a blogging editorial crisis. My complete lack of blogging last year due to important things has resulted in an enormous backlog of book reviews to be written and posted. Regular bloggers will exclaim, "Worry ye not! This means you have spare reviews for when you don't have time to write one, keep them in the box for later."
Well, that's all well and good, but many of these books are festive reads... Publishing festive reads in January just looks tardy and has that feel of left over Christmas pudding that sits in the fridge until someone cracks and feeds it to the birds. I suppose I could publish them in July to show just what a rebel I am, but quite honestly, Harrods will have beaten me to it by opening their Christmas shop in June. Perhaps I'll just hold them for next Christmas, and regale you with my more recent reads instead.
I have read a couple of really good tomes in the last couple of weeks. My current read is proving to be less of a page turner than I hoped, but I shall press on as it is a book club read. It may get better you never know, but so far I have tidied my office, done some washing and swept the leaves in the garden to avoid reading it. It has to go back to the library soon, so this weekend I have vowed to finish it. It also possible that I may have had a sneaky visit to Mr B's, and possibly purchased one or two literary items that I am desperate to read, so I can use that as a bribe to finishing the current book. I can't start the new ones until I have finished this one. It's like bribing a child to eat their greens in order to have dessert isn't it? Honestly, the maturity of my mind is a worry.
What are you reading at the moment?
