I don’t often post daily on my blog, it’s very rare that I manage a post each day of the week. Massive props to those that do, lots even manage more than one post daily! Alas, my procrastination levels often get in the way and my own posting is rather sporadic. 🙂
As I managed the feat of posting daily over the last week I thought I’d do a wrap-up post in-case any of you crazy cats missed any of my awesome posts from during the week! 🙂
Saturday was a personal post from me looking back at the anniversary of my father’s death 8 years ago which ended up being a diatribe of sorts about cancer and included me writing about both my grandfather and my dog too who also both sadly succumbed to cancer.
A snippet of the post is:
I guess everyone says that their pet is the best be it a dog, cat, rabbit, hamster, gerbil, bird or snake, it’s the pet owners prerogative. So you’ll excuse me my little indulgence as I say that Sully was the best dog ever.
Pets aren’t just ‘animals‘ they transcend that, they are part of the family, friends and they sure as hell aren’t like humans, they give you their love unconditionally and don’t expect anything in return whereas humans will often take, take and take and never give anything back. Pets don’t, they are always there for you when you need them and they give you so much and in return, you look after and care for them.

After the rather sombre and personal post on Saturday I decided to take the fun and light-hearted approach on Sunday with another fun book covers post this time featuring monster erotica covers.
To see the rest of the covers you can find the post link below:
Monday I had my Music Monday meme on the blog this week featuring The Bleeding by Five Finger Death Punch. If any of you want to join in with the meme then please feel free and remember to link to one of my posts so I can check out the tunes you like. 🙂

On Tuesday I posted my review for the fantastic Year One by Nora Roberts.
A snippet of my review:
I liked Roberts writing style. I found Year One to be bleak and dark without ever being overly so and there is lightness to go along with the darkness too, friendships, people banding together and some romance (shudders, though seriously, I didn’t mind the romance in year One, there isn’t much and it’s understated but adds to both the characters and the story). It’s occasionally whimsical, very easy to read and accessible (some post-apocalyptic books are often quite dense and require concentration. Year One wasn’t, it’s pick up and read material) with great pacing as the pages fly by in a blur. From the beginning, you are instantly pulled into the characters lives and the story that she is telling.

On Wednesday I posted twice, go me! 🙂
Firstly, I posted a Waiting on Wednesday meme for A Sacred Storm (The Viking Chronicles #2) by Theodore Brun.
You can find out more about the book in the post link below:
My second post of the day was a poem entitled Hate Myself (because when I’m not rocking the swearing and sarcasm I can do deep and meaningful too) which you can find a link to below:
On Thursday I posted my review for Malice of Crows by Lila Bowen.
A snippet of my review is:
Malice of Crows is a diverse read that displays its diversity proudly like Rhett wearing his Ranger badge and gives you a book that is full of action, emotion and captivating characters. If you’ve already read Wake of Vultures and Conspiracy of Ravens then it goes without saying that you need to read Malice of Crows and if you are yet to join up with Rhett’s posse then saddle on up and ride out for a wild time.
Malice of Crows is a high calibre fantasy western hybrid that’s a damn good roller-coaster of an adventure.

On Friday I posted the Friday-Face-Off meme where you compare covers on a certain theme. This week’s theme was night and my choice of book was Blood upon the Sand (The Song of the Shattered Sands #2) by Bradley P. Beaulieu.
The post link is below:
A pretty cool week on the blog. A personal post, a fun and very inappropriate post with the monster covers, a trio of memes (one I created), a emotional poem and a couple of sweet book reviews.
How has your blogging week been??
A girl missing
A woman, searching
A killer, planning…
A thrilling new FBI series for fans of Tess Gerritsen and Karin Slaughter.
FBI Agent Elsa Myers finds missing people.
She knows how it feels to be lost…
Though her father lies dying in a hospital north of New York City, Elsa cannot refuse a call for help. A teenage girl has gone missing from Forest Hills, Queens, and during the critical first hours of the case, a series of false leads hides the fact that she did not go willingly.
With each passing hour, as the hunt for Ruby deepens into a search for a man who may have been killing for years, the case starts to get underneath Elsa’s skin. Everything she has buried – her fraught relationship with her sister and niece, her self-destructive past, her mother’s death – threatens to resurface, with devastating consequences.
In order to save the missing girl, she may have to lose herself…and return to the darkness she’s been hiding from for years.
A Map of the Dark by Karen Ellis. A different genre for me and one I don’t often frequent but I’m really enjoying the book. Though I admit that I haven’t read as much as I should have as I’ve been playing Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus on the PS4 rather a lot! I mean, it’s killing Nazi’s, it’s awesome and I got to ride on the back of a large fire-breathing mechanical dog in it! And, one of the mission objectives was ‘kill them all‘ what an invitation to lay waste to some despicable Nazi swines! 🙂
