It’s been a long time…

It has been over a month since I posted here, hence the lack of a clever (attempt at a) title. I planned to post some more mini reviews a couple of weeks ago, but on the Friday of that week (when I planned to spend the Saturday working on those reviews) I ended up being admitted to hospital. In the weeks that followed I was incredibly busy with work and have only found the time now to sit and post here. The reason for this is that I am actually on holiday – at Moniack Mhor in the Highlands! Mon and I have wanted to go on one of these week long writing retreats for ages, and a couple of months ago we said ‘why not?’ – and here we are! Mon is working on her amazing graphic novel adaptation of ‘The Private Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinner’ – check out her work on Instagram at @monicaburns_art – and I’m working on a cheerful little play about two families forced to share a cramped apartment in Moscow in the 1930s. Fun times.

I brought books with me but whoops, our train terminated in Inverness. Where Leakeys a.k.a one of the most amazing bookshops ever is. So I may have bought more books to bring with me…

This is what I imagine Heaven looks like…

My book haul, on top of the one book I brought with me for research. Like an idiot.

I am having an amazing time so far, doing some research from said book pile when I’m not too busy looking out of the windows at the amazing scenery!

Sadly it’s been so long since I read those books I was going to do mini-reviews for, I feel as though it wouldn’t be wise to do them now, several weeks later. I’ll be honest, I’ve almost forgotten what happened in one of them! I hope to get back to writing book reviews soon, but in the meantime I really must take advantage of my time here to crack on with writing, and not just for this blog. I may have more updates later in the week but, if not, I’ll hopefully be back sooner rather than later with a review or two. šŸ™‚
