Hello friends, happy Friday and welcome to my Weekly Update!
This year I thought I’d try something new and start a weekly update instead of a monthly update. I’m not really sure how this is going to go exactly, but I hope you’ll stick around for the ride!
Night Shift: I’m 89% of the way through; this week’s short story was good, more sad than horrifying or scary.
The Return of the King: I’m 33% of the way through; I completed the first part in this book. It was slow going, but I’m excited to get back to Frodo and Sam… like I always am.
Lastly, I’m reading Intensity by: Sherrilyn Kenyon. This is the final book in her Chronicles of Nick series. I went through my Goodreads shelves last year and made a list of series I need to finish and this was one of them. I was never the biggest fan of this series, but I want to finish it. This instalment is alright, it’s fast-paced so that’s a bonus!
What I’ve Read:
Last week I finished This Savage Song by: Victoria Schwab. This wasn’t my favourite of hers, it was intriguing and I liked it enough to read the sequel.
I also finished Ever the Hunted by: Erin Summerhill. Wow, this book – I have to say, I wasn’t expecting to be blown away like I was, but this was such a great first novel in a trilogy and the ending left me in shock! I can’t wait to read the second book.
Links to my my blog posts this past week:
Links to posts I enjoyed around the blogosphere:
Zainab @Zainab Chats talked about tools for blogging successfully and I have to say I enjoyed reading it and I found out Adobe Lightroom is free for the phone app!
Jenna @Bookmark Your Thoughts shared the “Folklore” reading challenge on the StoryGraph and I just joined the StoryGraph so I’m excited to look into this!
Nyx @Drizzle and Hurricane Books talked about why she doesn’t participate in the Goodreads Challenge and I loved reading her perspective!
The second week of the year down – I have to say it’s been really quiet. We’ve gone into a “state of emergency” where I live so only going out for essentials… which is pretty much what I’ve been doing since November. I barely leave the house these days. The only thing I leave the house for is going for a walk around the block every day.
A few positives from this week:
– the NHL is back, so hockey is now back in my life. The Leafs won their first game, let’s hope they can do it again tonight
What I’ve been watching:
I’m continuing with One Tree Hill. I’m still on season one, I’m 14 episodes in. Damn, I didn’t remember ep. 8 to be such a pivotal episode. Nathan and Haley get together with that Dare You to Move song by Switchfoot (love that scene 😅😊) then at the same time, the Lucas, Brook, Peyton love triangle starts. I have to say, now that I’m older it all seems really silly.
I started the final season of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. I can’t believe that this show got cancelled because it’s SO good! I’m loving the season, I love Sabrina and the journeys she goes on, not only as a witch, but for her personally. I also really love Nick this season 😍
Last week, I realized I forgot to add the shows I’m watching on TV 😅. The Good Doctor came back this past week. I think they did a good job of showing what Covid burn-out and PTDS can look like.
This is Us came back last week, and I’m loving this season. I’m tell you, all I want is for Randall to be happy and I think we’re getting that.
I finished watching season 4 of The Crown. Wow, talk about an intense season. There was so much happening that I can’t wait to watch more… too bad I have to wait until 2022!
Lastly, I watched Children of the Corn II: The Final Sacrifice it was good, part of me is even wondering if I can properly say I watched it when I lost sound halfway through the movie 😅
I’m going to end these wrap ups with my Instagram posts of the week… this is going to make my posts look longer than they are because I can’t change the size of the image/links.
