Hello all and happy Monday! My boss is away on vacation this week so I’m in a very good mood even though my reading wasn’t quite where I wanted it to be last week. I….don’t think I finished any books last week? Whoops!
The plan was to get reading done this weekend but then I got caught up in watching The Untamed and pretty much spend the ENTIRE weekend watching it. To be fair, that show is amazing. I mean, it starts off super confusing and then not a lot happens for a while and just sort of slowly builds until you’re like ‘HOLY SHIT’. Anyway it’s amazing and I have zero regrets even if it meant my reading took a hit.
Meanwhile, I’m feeling SUPER stressed about a lot of things I have coming up–today I’m taking my car in for regular maintenance but I’m always scared that they’ll find something wrong that I’ll need to get fixed. Then we’re getting closer to having our bathroom and kitchen reno so there’s a ton of planning as well as we’ll have to figure out what to do with our cats for a month as Loki especially is an extremely nervous cat and doesn’t do well with a) other people in the house and b) loud noises. So. Stressssssssss. And that’s kind of made its way into other areas of my life as my anxiety trickles down into everything. Ah well.
I actually made pretty good progress on Leviathan Wakes by James S. A. Corey but It’s not a short audio so it’s run into this week as well. If I had worked on my embroidery this weekend instead of binge watching a drama I may have actually finished this…alas. Really enjoying it. Honestly, it did take a little bit for me to get fully invested but once things kick into high gear you’re like ‘whaaaaaat is happening????? omg omg omg’ and it’s a whole thing I wasn’t expecting. 🙂
I’m only about 16% into The Death of the Necromancer by Martha Wells. I think it’s just that I’m not in the mood for this right now? It’s good and honestly the style and subgenre is totally my thing–plus it’s Martha Wells. But I just…ugh….mood reading. But I’m going to try again this week and hopefully will really connect and fly through the rest of it.
Not sure what my next read will be after that buuuuuut, I did buy about 4 or 5 romance novels the other day so I have a feeling I’ll be digging into some romance this week if it’s what my mood demands. What are you reading this week? Leave a note in the comments, I’d love to chat!
