The Postman Knock #144

Hey, gals and chaps!

So sorry I've been mostly silent on the blog. This Tuesday we finally finished our olive harvest with 1098kg of olives. Oh My God, I am drained! We managed to get 100 litres of olive oil though, even after giving some away to friends who helped us. 

As a result I've been struggling to post on schedule as you might have noticed. My concentration is shot, so all I do in my free time is baking and watching The Big Bang Theory with the hubby.

Huge apologies to you all! I'll make an effort to be more present online and review on time. Especially this close to Christmas. There will be Christmas With feature this year, and so far all the stories my author guests sent are adorable. I can't wait for you all to read them.

Here is what I READ since last time we talked:

NINJA AT FIRST SIGHT is so freaking adorable, I can't even...THE HERO OF AGES on the other hand was a disappointment to me. I felt like this book made all the enormous effort its character made a moot point, and it pissed me off. THE COINCIDENCE OF COCONUT CAKE turned out to be another lovely, funny and comforting read. Thoroughly recommended! I didn't enjoy GRAY BISHOP, and now two books into this series I know it's not for me. The way the plot is split into multiple love stories, and the way the whole book is a series of gruesome attacks with very inadequate defense didn't sit well with me, and I don't think I'll continue. It was way too depressing to read.GLAMOUR IN GLASS was amazing and heartbreaking, and I also loved WITHOUT A SUMMER. I finished BREAK (part of FORBIDDEN trilogy) deep into last night and really enjoyed it. Fantastic book!


Thanks to Amazon gift card I finally can finish Mary Robinette Kowal's series and look! My first Christmas read, thanks to Audible daily deal :)

This is it for me, peeps!
Have a wonderful day, over and out.

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
