Hello all! Hope you had a wonderful week. I spent most of the week in a near constant state of anxiety because that’s just how it is now apparently. I am managing it okay though, therapy does seem to be helping. Nevertheless, anxiety sucks even when you’re managing it okay. Anywho.
The weather here took a turn for Autumn and I’m happy to have it cool off and see the humidity go away. That being said I’ll be sad when Winter arrives! The only good thing about Winter is I can wear cute knit hats and sweaters and cuddle up with hot beverages. Having to go in and out of the house in the cold, dealing with snow and ice–no thanks!
This week I got a few new books in the mail! Very hyped for The Quicksilver Court by Melissa Caruso which has been one of my most anticipated books of the year as I absolutely loved the first one of this series! Next up is the Owlcrate edition of Once Upon a Broken Heart by Stephanie Garber. I’ve yet to read one of her books but honestly this sounded right up my alley and so I thought I’d give it a try. Finally we have Jade Fire Gold by June C.L. Tan. I think I saw this one on a list somewhere a while back and thought ‘hell yeah’ and pre-ordered it. 😉
Last week I managed to finish one book–Longshadow by Olivia Atwater, the latest in her Regency Faerie Tales series. I absolutely loved this one. If you like sort of Regency Fantasy that also turns tropes on their heads and has a bunch of biting social commentary then these might be the books for you. I highly recommend them, they are exactly my cup of tea and I’m excited for whatever the author’s next book is going to be.
This week I plan on finishing up Cast in Conflict by Michelle Sagara. I’ve been reading this one on and off for a while now and want to finish it up. It’s not that it’s not grabbing me it’s just that every single book seems to be taking longer than normal right now and also physical books are even tougher because I usually don’t haul them to work with me. I did manage to make a good amount of progress on it over the weekend and am now more than halfway through so I think I can finish it up soon!
I’m also hoping that I’ll be able to get back to more blogging soon. I did get a bit of an urge this weekend to work on some posts but then that flew right by me. (I’m in an ‘organizing things around the house’ mood still–apparently, so maybe when that passes.)
What are you up to this week? Leave a note in the comments, I’d love to chat!
