Well, I’ve got some good news and bad news. The bad news is, I’ve come down with an illness. I don’t quite know what it is because there’s no fever but with a cough and a swollen throat that has me sounding like a plague victim, I’ve made the decision to not leave the house for any reason.
The good news is, I’ve made the decision to not leave the house for any reason! Finally, I’ve got loads of time to read, write and play some Civilizations VI. (Just discovered it, what a game!)
There’s no way to know if this illness is COVID-19 or not and at the moment, it’s quite mild. But I would be mortified to go out in public with any symptoms whether it’s COVID-19 or not, just in case it is. Here in the UK, we’re still on lockdown and getting specific advice is pretty difficult at the moment because of all the panic and the closure of all the doctor’s surgeries. All I can do is wait this out and try and stay isolated.
Anyway, let’s focus on the good news! Thanks to a whole host of generous authors who are offering their books for free on the Quarantine Relief Books from Authors to Readers group on Facebook, my e-reader is loaded. A huge thank you to all the authors who have donated their books during this pandemic, you are all heroes in your own right!
One of the books that is on my TBR pile this week is another book by Kim Petersen:

I read and reviewed one of Kim Petersen’s books Blood Legend: Undead a few weeks back and loved it, so I was especially glad when Kim asked me to review the next book in the series, Blood Legend: Rebirth.
This book is apparently only a little longer than the first but I hope it’s just as captivating. Kim Petersen writes short, impactful and highly emotive books and she is about as afraid as George R.R. Martin to kill people in her books. With any luck, another short but enjoyable read will put me back on track to getting ahead of schedule (if that makes sense).
I’m still not entirely finished with the list from my inbox but with what I have left and the new haul of books, I should be good for at least two months, maybe longer!
Even though I’m a bit under the weather right now, I’m going to use my time wisely and get plenty of reading done. In the meantime, stay safe and don’t take any unnecessary risks. Your life is too important!
Thanks for reading!
