The Report: Okay, so here we are, D Day. Report day for The Hungry Readers games. Okay. So In my defence, it’s been a Bit Of A Week. I realised at the start of the week I was putting out The Greatest of Enemies and put it out, we had a mini ‘everything’s falling apart day’ in relation to homeschool, we’ve continued trying to convert the garden from being a building site, I’ve been telling the kids they can’t look at screens so I’ve tried not to be a hypocrite (didn’t work, I was called out on the fact that I sit on my Kindle/phone while they’re busy ‘at school’) … Yes, I know, I’m stalling. I’ll get on with it. So I don’t have a problem with how much I read: I read two books

  1. Coming Home to Heritage Cove by Helen Rolfe (242 pages) Read between the 5th and 6th of June
  2. When Life Gives You Lemons by Fiona Gibson (400 pages but my god did not feel like it!!! Read between the 4th to 6th June)
  3. Today I will be reading The Midwife Crisis by Lyndsey Gallagher which I have just started but am LOVING! I won’t get to blog it, but will tweet and instagram (is that a verb?) when I finish (216 pages)

I suppose my problem is more what I DIDN’T do.

  1. Download the Kindle app to track what I was reading (in my defence my phone was crammed full, it’s going to have to go onto somewhere else next week
  2. Learn instagram (covers eyes) Have only joined but am happy to be at 85 followers!
  3. Tweet/ facebook/instagram as I went
  4. Write a blog post for Fiona Gibson’s book (I’ll post next week about it)
  5. Get my you-know-what together!


So I guess I’ll aim to do better next week (although as I said I’m happy with what I read and enjoyed every last word of all books!) And I’m happy to accept my points (no roll of the dice this week!!)
