Hi all, hope you all had a very pleasant weekend. Turns out the joke’s on me because my weekend marathon of reading wasn’t very successful. I did manage to spend a lot of time reading but it was all spent on this webtoon (My Dear Cold-Blooded King) which is sort of a fantasy romance reverse harem thingy (fantasy in that it’s a made up world but it also feels like a historical). It was utterly addictive and I just couldn’t stop reading it until I finished it which was late Sunday night. Whoops! To be fair it was a pretty long webtoon (something like 160some episodes) which is equivalent to roughly 28-32 collected volumes (if it were a manga). So….that’s a lot! I also read something like 70 episodes of another webtoon and a YA novel last week. So I did a lot of reading just…not what I have been ‘supposed’ to been reading.
In some ways it’s been nice just reading whatever but also I do have some books that are due for reviews. I neeeeeed to get them off my plate so I can just read whatever all the time!
Anyway. So I’m reading the same books I was reading last week. I am just barely into Gods of Jade and Shadow by Silvia Moreno-Garcia but I love the prose so far–totally into the voice of the author in this one. I also did make a bit of progress on The Jasmine Throne by Tasha Suri but then got distracted by webtoons! And I actually made a ton of progress on The Ruin of Kings by Jenn Lyons thanks to my craft project and I’m actually hoping I can finish this up by mid-week as I only have about six and a half hours left on the audio (this book is sooooo much fun!).
I honestly don’t know how this week will go. I’m hoping I can get myself back on track with my reading soon. But not only that, all my blogging stuff. I’m so out of routine now and it feels weird. But I’m also still…in a bit of a weird headspace getting used to only having two cats now and the new routine in the house. Anywho. What is everyone else planning for this week? Leave a note in the comments, I’d love to chat!
