Book Review 2018: Part One

 

This year seems to have been the year of book sequels for me. I’d been patiently waiting on three sequels of books I have read in the past year or so to come out and, suddenly, the whole bloody lot appear at once. Slightly overwhelmed with my array of books to choose from, I eenie-meenie-miney-mo’d them (grown up people still do that, right??) and selected them in order. I had them all read within less than two months. Oops. Thankfully, my bookworm fiance, who somehow just knows exactly which books I will enjoy, had already picked me out a new one for when I finished those. ‘The Terror’, by Dan Simmons. And oooohh boy, am I loving it! I’m only about a third of the way through, so you might have to wait a while until I’m done to find out whether I continue to enjoy it all the way through! But I thought I would share these other books with you so maybe you can enjoy them too! Since a few of these are sequels, I’ll talk about the first book/books in the series as well so you can start from the beginning!

How To Crush That Cabin Fever on Rainy Autumn Days

 

We’ve been pretty lucky so far this Autumn weather-wise. There hasn’t been too many dull and dreary days, but you can never speak too soon! I love being able to go outdoors, have a walk, and enjoy the fresh air and crispy leaves underfoot, whilst all wrapped up warm in a big, cosy coat and scarf. However, this all gets hurled out the window as soon as the wet weather comes sweeping in! There is nothing I hate more than being outside in the rain. And I won’t even look outside when it’s sleeting. I can’t stand wet feet, frizzy hair and the constant drip, drip, drip of water plopping onto my nose from the tip of my hood. You’ll have breakfast, dust and tidy the house, stick the washing on and prep some stuff for dinner. And by then it’s still not even 9:30am. Cabin fever can start to set in pretty quick after this, especially when you know you’ve still got pretty much the entire day ahead of you. Here’s a list of my favourite things to do to crush cabin fever and say goodbye to boring days inside for good!
