We’re back with another Sundays in Bed With… meme! This meme dares to ask you what book has been in your bed this morning and is hosted by Midnight Book Girl. Come share what book you’ve spent your time curled up reading in bed with or which book you wish you had time to read today!
I’ll be wrapping up my Sunday in bed still reading Seven Faceless Saints by M.K. Lobb. I’m only about 7% in but I’m definitely intrigued by what’s happening—it’s giving me a combo of Nevernight and Wicked Saints vibes and I’m hoping that the execution of the story will be good!
In the city of Ombrazia, saints and their disciples rule with terrifying and unjust power, playing favorites while the unfavored struggle to survive.
After her father’s murder at the hands of the Ombrazian military, Rossana Lacertosa is willing to do whatever it takes to dismantle the corrupt system—tapping into her powers as a disciple of Patience, joining the rebellion, and facing the boy who broke her heart. As the youngest captain in the history of Palazzo security, Damian Venturi is expected to be ruthless and strong, and to serve the saints with unquestioning devotion. But three years spent fighting in a never-ending war have left him with deeper scars than he wants to admit… and a fear of confronting the girl he left behind.
Now a murderer stalks Ombrazia’s citizens. As the body count climbs, the Palazzo is all too happy to look the other way—that is, until a disciple becomes the newest victim. With every lead turning into a dead end, Damian and Roz must team up to find the killer, even if it means digging up buried emotions. As they dive into the underbelly of Ombrazia, the pair will discover something more sinister—and far less holy. With darkness closing in and time running out, will they be able to save the city from an evil so powerful that it threatens to destroy everything in its path?
Discover what’s lurking in the shadows in this dark fantasy debut with a murder-mystery twist, perfect for fans of Leigh Bardugo and Kerri Maniscalco.

Not much new happened this week. I ended up WFH for a good chunk of it trying to write our annual report. The organisation’s work is pretty new to me (all about data innovation, digital transformation, etc.) so there are a lot of concepts and jargon that’s confusing. Putting it lightly, it’s been ✨a challenge✨ writing this without much guidance but I know circumstances aren’t always good and we just need to do our best with what we’ve got, right? At least, I’m trying desperately to believe it, lol! Long story short, I can’t wait until February is over and I can put this nightmare behind me! 😂
On books: I’ve been a fair bit behind on writing reviews this last month, as well as updating my reading log on Twitter and my spreadsheet. I still need to get one done today and I’m hoping to get that review up on my blog tomorrow!
On blogging: I responded to comments on my blog last night and I’m so proud of getting that done. It took a while but now I think I’m fairly updated, I just have to catch up with blog hopping. I’ve really dropped the ball on this and I gotta be honest, I don’t think it’s going to get better soon. I’m not going to put more pressure on myself until work gets less stressful cos my brain just can’t do it. I’m so sorry for the lack of engagement, friends! 🙏🏽
ICYMI, here’s what I posted on the blog this week:
- Book Review: In the Weeds by B.K. Borison

OMG! That video made me cry. I have faith that you will get through this annual report and then you can forget about it (until next year?) I am always behind on reviews. I just hope I can remember enough by the time I get around to writing the some of them.
I feel like I have been slacking with instagram so it’s all good. 😂 Sometimes we have time and sometimes we don’t! It’s life. Hopefully your February goes smoothly with your job!
No worries, Dini. We all go through busy times like that sometimes. 🙂
DINNY THE BOOK LOOKS + SOUNDS SO AMAZING AND I READ AN AUTHOR INTERVIEW POST ON IT JUST THIS MORNING?? rest assured, I CANT WAIT TO GET TO THE BOOK AND AM ALSO SLIGHTLY DESPERATE TO HEAR WHAT YOU THINK.
I’m so sorry about work being so stressful though BUT SHH. YOU CAN DO THIS!!!!! and don’t worry about being behind on comments and bloghopping YOURE DOING FAR BETTER THAN MOST OF US*
(MOST OF US BEING ME. but shhh. dont stress it ok?? TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF FIRST)
Ugh – so sorry work is stressful right now, Dini. I hope February goes by fast so you can put some of the chaos behind you. 🙂 And I LOVE that song – so gorgeous!!
I hope you had maybe a past report to use as a guide. I hate being thrown in to something like that but I know you’ll figure it out and create a great report.
I hope Seven Faceless Saints is great!!
Hope you’re enjoying Seven Faceless Saints. I fully empathise with balancing blogging, blog hopping and the pressures of work. I’m so tired when I get home that I just don’t have the energy or brainpower to visit and leave comments. Do what you can, when you can and don’t beat yourself up if that isn’t as much as you want to do!
At least February is a short month. Hopefully it will go by quickly for you.
I hope you like Seven Faceless Saints. I enjoyed it and found it to be a pretty easy read. That sucks that work is so stressful right now. I also hate being thrown into a task without really knowing exactly what to do. All you can do is your best. Hopefully February will fly by, and the report will be behind you before you know it. 🙂
