August 2018 round up


Ten books means I’ve gone well over my target for the year, so I’ve increased it from 52 to 80!

  • Poor Stainless (The Borrowers 4.5) – Mary Norton
  • Dragonfly in Amber (Outlander #2) – Diana Gabaldon
  • Five Go Adventuring Againreviewed here
  • Cops and Robbers – Janet and Allan Ahlberg
  • Dead in the Family (Sookie Stackhouse #10) – Charlaine Harris
  • Cream Buns and Crime (A Murder Most Unladylike collection) – Robin Stevens (reviewed here)
  • Immortal Nights (Argeneau Vampires #24) – Lynsay Sands
  • A Touch of Dead (Sookie Stackhouse Short Stories) – Charlaine Harris
  • The Secret Island – Audiobook, reviewed here
  • Just One Damned Thing After Another (The Chronicles of St Mary’s #1) – Jodi Taylor

And I’ve still to finish:

  • No Waste Like Home – Penney Poyzer
  • Bundle of Trouble (Maternal Instincts #1) – Diana Orgain
  • A Symphony of Echoes (The Chronicles of St Mary’s #2) – Jodi Taylor


  • Hollyoaks
  • Far too much of Brodie’s new favourite, Hey Duggee, plus some Pocoyo.
  • Older episodes of QI on Netflix
  • The rest of Picnic at Hanging Rock
  • More of season two of Outlander, and the start of season 3. Now I’ve read the second book it’s interesting to watch it with a better understanding of what’s to come.
  • A little bit of Disenchantment, a Netflix original made by Matt Groening of The Simpsons.
  • Series two (I think) of The Great British Menu and some of Celebrity Masterchef (though the latter is on so many nights a week it’s hard to keep up!)


  • Celebrated Brodie’s first birthday and thrown him a birthday party.
  • Assembled a toy kitchen that needed 98 (!) screws.
  • Enjoyed a week off work with day trips to Craigtoun Park, lunches out and a visit to family further afield.
  • Found a few more penguin statues
  • Taken Brodie swimming
