Sunday Post (16) - Long Weekends are the Best

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

The Rules can be found here. And this week's post can be found here.

If you participate, and you should because the community is amazing, don't forget to link up and if you leave me a comment, I will definitely check out your blog!

This week wasn't particularly eventful. I've been running after my Goodreads reading goal all week and somehow never really managed to catch up with it. 5 books behind, tssk! But it's a Bank Holiday weekend in the UK and that means Monday is off as well... more time to read! I'm almost done with editing my children's fantasy and am hoping to edit my adult contemporary novel (with a bit of a speculative twist) in May.

The snail is doing well, the dogs are doing well (the Aussie stopped limping, but I'm not letting him jump after frisbees for another few weeks.) For now, everyone is happy and the cold snap seems to be over. Summer is hopefully coming soon.
Last week on my blog:
Last week in my kitchen: I stuffed a pork tenderloin with a homemade pesto paste (mushrooms, spinach, pine nuts, lemon zest, goat cheese, garlic and some herbs and spices with a bit of olive oil). It turned out amazing. I also made both beef ribs and pork ribs and ended up having to eat them on my own (not complaining) because they were too fatty for my girlfriend. I wonder if I braise the beef for longer if more of the fat would render out.

Next week on my blog: Still years behind my reviews, or so it seems. I have yet to review The God of Small Things, The Lions of Al-Rassan, I Let You Go, Dark Places and Truly Madly Guilty. That's without the two SF books I've read last week, which were The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August and The City & The City.

I wish everyone a lovely week.


  1. Oh wow, that pork tenderloin sounds amazing...I'm drooooling... :)

  2. Ooh glad you liked Big Little Lies, I missed your post but just went over and read it. And yay for long weekends, hope your Monday off was fabulous. :)

    Have a good rest of the week.

    1. It was a very gripping read :) You too! Thank you!

  3. Hope you managed to get some reading done on the bank holiday. Or at least enjoy the day in some other way. The stuffed tenderloin sounds positively divine. I think I drooled a little. ;-)

  4. Aargh, I'm NINE books behind at the moment. I guess we'll just see what the next few months bring! Hopefully I'll be able to catch up a little but at the end of the day it's just a goal and it doesn't hurt anyone if we don't make it!

    I hope that you have been having a great couple of weeks while I haven't been in the blogosphere! I'm attempting a catch up but no promises!
