Well, after a little bit of a break from ‘scheduled’ reading, it’s time to get back to some review request books. I need to get back on schedule before I get behind again, hah. Last week I had a pretty good week in reading in some respects because I finished four books–two romance novels, a thriller, and one fantasy. Because work was challenging, I didn’t get much audiobook time in at all and I’m now worried about finishing The Obelisk Gate before it expires from the library. I mean, it’s not the end of the world because I have a physical copy but I wanted to stick with the audio on this one.
The other thing is that because of all the stress at work and the change of seasons, it’s really triggered my depression and anxiety issues. Friday night I was tired and worn out from work but then ended up staying up til 430am reading a romance novel straight through. And then I was basically a zombie on Saturday. So that was fun!
But, moving on, pushing myself forward. Still accomplished some things and other parts of the weekend were amazing. My friend had bought me a ticket to go with him to see The Sailor Moon Super Live concert in DC for Christmas and the concert was on Sunday night. It was so much fun! Our seats were super close and the show was great. And because he got the premium package we got to high-five the cast after the show. I think we hit peak fandom, lol. It was definitely the highlight and saving grace of an otherwise crappy week.
I’ll be finishing up The Obelisk Gate by N.K. Jemisin one way or another this week. Hopefully I’ll get plenty of audio time in and finish up early this week before it expires!
Once I finish up The Obelisk Gate I’ll be listening to Once & Future by Amy Rose Capetta and Cori McCarthy, woohoo! So excited to dig into this one. Trying to keep up with all the new books coming out. 😀
I’ll also be reading a few review requests: Straight Outta Fangton by C.T. Phipps and Shin by T. Cook. I’ve enjoyed other work by both authors, so looking forward to both of these.
Hopefully this week will not be as crazy at work as last week and I’ll be able to get lots of reading in, and also catch up on blog-hopping. I’m so behind! Expect lots of comments from me soon. 🙂 What is everyone else reading this week? Leave a note in the comments, I’d love to hear from you!
