Work has been absolutely crazy this week (mostly in good ways) so by the time I’ve got home and cooked dinner etc, my brain has felt a bit like mush. Other than work and then relaxing in the evenings, I haven’t really done much this week except go to the cinema. I admit, I did something other bookworms may find unthinkable – I went to see The Book Thief before finishing the book!

Since we’re both skint, we agreed on a £5 budget for Valentine’s day gifts. Part of my gift was a copy of The Cuckoo’s Calling because I still haven’t read it, so that’s one of my incoming this week. Other than that, my grandparents picked up a second hand copy of Virals for me when we went shopping and I got some library books.
I didn’t buy any books this week, even though I have a WHSmith 20% off voucher just crying out to be used! My awesome Valentine’s Ninja Book Swap arrived, which included great things including a copy of….
