WWW Wednesday (9/22/21)

Happy Wednesday! I visited some family on Monday and Tuesday and had so much fun. I didn’t get much reading done, but I managed to get through some books over the weekend, so here’s a quick update on what I’ve read, what I’m reading, and what I want to read next!

Sept ’21 Mid-Month Update

Hey everyone! It’s the middle of September and life has been crazy for me.

There are a lot of Jewish holidays in September and we’ve already made it through Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur already, so the big two are done! I’m actually heading up to Queens to visit some of my in-laws for another holiday, Sukkot, this weekend and I’m really excited. I know it’s going to be a good time, I’m just a little stressed to leave my two kitties at home alone.

In terms of reading, this month has been going pretty smoothly. I haven’t blown through books like I wish I could, but I don’t think I’m falling behind. I’m right where I’m supposed to be – I think. Anyways, here’s what I’ve read, what I’m reading, and what I want to read for the rest of September!

WWW Wednesday (9/8/21)

Hey everyone! Happy Wednesday! If you weren’t aware, it was Rosh Hashanah this past Tuesday and that means I had off to celebrate the New Year! A lot of stuff happened this past weekend, including introducing my new kitten to my resident cat, Maggie, which went as well as you could expect! (Hint: it didn’t go super well)

In terms of reading, this week was awesome! And I can’t wait for all the great books I plan to read this month!

WWW Wednesday (8/25/2021)

Hi everyone! It’s been a little while since I’ve done a WWW Wednesday post, but I’m back again with another reading update! This reading week has been weird to say the least. I was surprisingly busy this past weekend and somehow managed to read on both of those days, but then on other, less busy days, I barely read anything. Make it make sense!

Anyways, to get to the point, I read books this week! Yay! And here’s what I read!

Aug ’21 Mid-Month Update

I’m a little late for my mid-month update, but oh well, I have some updates to share and it’s close enough!

I’ve somehow managed to be on track/a little ahead of my TBR and I’m actually shocked. I have been reading some really good books and trying to prevent myself from getting into a horrible slump, so I have been racing through certain books. Fingers crossed I can actually make it out of my TBR alive!

WWW Wednesday (7/21/21)

This week has been not great for me. A lot of sad, stressful things happened in a short amount of time and I’m still not recovered from it. On Monday morning, we woke up to find out our fish had died. I gave my fiance that fish as a present 4 years ago and he was with us through everything. He was a blood parrot cichlid named Smiley and he was so lively. He would swim up to greet you and do tricks, like flipping upside down for us. We are both so sad that he passed. And that was just the icing on the shit week I’ve been having. I won’t even go into the other stuff I’ve been dealing with, but I’ll summarize with lots of tears and lots of arguing. Not fun.

I’m going on and on about life. You’re not here for that. It’s sad because Sunday started off great and then turned for the worst and it’s just gotten more and more awful since then. But anyways, here’s my reading update for this week!

What I’m Currently Reading and Watching: Part VII

I feel like I haven’t given an update on this in a WHILE, so today, we’re starting this week off nice and chill with a reading and watching update!

This past weekend has been hectic with friends staying over and meeting more friends for dinner the next day. I also dropped some serious cash entertaining friends and my poor wallet is crying. Anyone else cringe seeing their check after a night out or after planning one for friends?

I also managed to finish the book I was reading, Ruinsong, and the review should be up for that tomorrow! But for now, here’s what I’m currently reading and watching!

June ’21 Mid-Month Update

We’re already halfway through June and that means it’s time for a mid-month update! Time has been flying by and I feel a little behind on my TBR, but I’m hoping to have some time to catch up this week. I managed to read two books while on vacation and while I would have loved to read more, I’m pretty happy with what I’ve read honestly. It was a good balance between spending time with my family and having time to myself to relax.

With that being said, here’s what I’ve managed to read, what I’m currently reading, and what I want to read for the rest of June.

WWW Wednesday (5/19/21)

Well, I moved! I’m finally moved in and while I’m still unpacking, it’s now mostly boxes and some remaining things to get in. With moving week, I did not get any reading done. I was really hoping I could get through at least one book, but no. I got about 30% in to one book, but that was it before the chaos began. Anyways, here’s a reading update for this past week!

What I’m Currently Reading and Watching: Part VI

This week has been so stressful for me. I feel like so much is going on and there’s not enough time to get it all done, so it’s just swirling around me endlessly.

Also, I’m packing, so that’s fun. So to keep things light and to ease some of the stress, today I’m sharing what I’m currently reading and watching!


READING

54860493    55422802

I’m about 40% of the way through Sky Breaker and I’m starting Spells Trouble today, so I’m hoping I can read them quickly! Sky Breaker isn’t living up to what I wanted. I remember liking Night Spinner, the first book, but this one jumped right back in so I was very confused. And the main character went from being this strong warrior to a passive character in the first book and has now turned into a paranoid control freak. She’s kind of irritating me and I’m not enjoying this book at all. Hopefully Spells Trouble is better.


WATCHING

Shadow and Bone (TV Series 2021– ) - IMDb    Modern Family - Saison 6 La saison 6 de la série Modern Family est  disponible en français sur Netfl… | Modern family, Modern family season 5,  Watch modern family

I watched a few episodes of Shadow and Bone, but I want to be able to sit down and binge it, so I’m waiting until I move and things calm down. In the meantime, I have been steadily getting through Modern Family and I’m now on Season 6, almost to Season 7. This is kind of my comfort show – I tend to watch it when I’m feeling stressed and just want to distract myself from life, so I’ve been watching it a lot recently.

Besides that I also watch YouTube when I’m bored or listen to podcasts. Especially if I’m in a reading slump or not enjoying the book I’m currently reading.


What are you currently reading and watching? Any recommendations for what I should read or watch next?

WWW Wednesday (4/28/21)

It’s the middle of the week and time for another round of WWW Wednesday! I didn’t get much reading done this weekend since I spent the majority of it packing my bookshelves and selling the stuff that I didn’t want to come with me. But, I managed to finish some books at least and start new ones!

WWW Wednesday (4/21/21)

Back again with another WWW Wednesday! I’m really liking these posts and it’s a lot of fun (and a little less mental work every week). Not much has happened this week, so not much of an update, although I did change my plan for what I need to read next.

What I’m Currently Reading and Watching: Part V

Life has been awful for me recently. My brother in law got into a car accident and totaled his car. He’s pretty beat up from it too and has been to the hospital twice. My aunt has COVID and I’m freaking out. My fiance, his family, and I had a COVID scare last week too. Meanwhile, we’re house hunting which is emotionally exhausting and my poor heart can’t take it anymore.

It’s been a doozy.

So I’m keeping it light here with what I’m currently reading and watching!

What I’m Currently Reading & Watching: Part II

It took me a week to read White Fox by Sara Faring, which means that I am not reading a lot, so I thought it would be fun to do a currently reading and watching post!

My watching habits are mood based, so it can honestly change from week to week. But this is what I’ve been watching and reading this week and what I plan to watch soon!

What I’m Currently Reading + Watching

My reading has lagged since starting a blog tour company so I’m doing something a little different today. Here’s what I’m currently reading and watching!

Reading:

Right now I’m currently reading –

32718027    48574106. sy475     35702241

I’m about 50% through The City of Brass right now and since I finished A Wicked Magic and Splinters of Scarlet, I’m going to start two new books. Ignite the Sun is another NetGalley read I need to get off my list and The Shadows Between Us is a fun, short read I’ve been wanting to get through for a while.

Watching:

www.gstatic.com/tv/thumb/tvbanners/11232067/p11...    Zoey 101 (TV Series 2005–2008) - IMDb    Hannah Montana (TV Series 2006–2011) - IMDb    Cursed (TV Series 2020– ) - IMDb

My boyfriend and I are currently on season 3 of Legend of Korra. This is a rewatch for me, but it’s his first time watching the show. So far he really likes it and I’m just happy to have someone who understands my obsession with this show!

I’ve been on a nostalgia kick recently so I’ve been rewatching old shows I loved as a kid/teen. Currently, I’m on season 1 of Zoey101 and on season 4 of Hannah Montana. It feels so weird to rewatch these shows and have the memories of their premiere or sitting down in my parent’s home to watch with my little sisters. Makes me miss my childhood a little bit.

I’m debating if I want to start watching Cursed. I’ve been hearing some controversial things about the book and the show. Part of me wants to watch to know why, the other part wants to avoid it at all costs. If anyone has started watching the show or read the book, let me know if I should give this a try or not.

 

June 2020 Mid-Month Update

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

So far, I’m pretty happy with how much I’ve read this month! Some of these books I started at the end of May and finished in the beginning of June, but I’m counting them! My goal is to read eight books this month and so far, I’ve done really well and I’ll definitely going to meet that goal. Let’s just hope I continue reading such amazing stories for the rest of this month.

What I read

32718027     17699853

I’m surprised I am able to read so much this month. Before moving in I thought I would have no time to read and would be lucky to get through 2 books a week. But it looks like I’m getting through a book about every other day or so, which is awesome! I hope to continue to have as much reading time going forward and hopefully, you’ll be seeing reviews of these books soon!

What books are you currently reading? Are you close to your goal for this month?
