Lisa’s Week In Review: 6/18/18 — 6/24/18

Another brutally hot week comes to a close!

I ended up taking a break from twitter this week.  That’s something I do whenever people start to get on my nerves.  On Wednesday, at 5, I announced that I would return in 24 hours and then I stayed away until Friday.  Those 24 hours easily became 48.  And while it may not have made people any more civil, being away from all of that negative crap certainly did me a world of good!

We’re almost halfway through 2018.  I may be alone in this but, with the exception of that month when I was battling the world’s worst allergies, my year’s been pretty good so far.  Let’s hope that trend continues.

    • It was an interesting read and I’m going to write a full review at some point soon. It was definitely a return to the grim and violent Bond on Fleming’s early novels. Colonel Sun was a good villain but I think Amis took the story so far that it was hard to imagine Bond going back to being the Bond that we all knew before M got kidnapped.
