A whole bunch of nothing happened last week. But that’s okay. Because this week? If all goes to plan, I’m seeing Thor: Ragnarok on Thursday, woo hoo! Thor is my favourite of the Marvel movie series, I don’t really care about the others anymore (they managed to burn me out AND piss me off with the last Avengers movie so…*shrugs*)

Book Review: Debauched by Jennifer Dawson
Book Review: Christmas at the Gin Shack by Catherine Miller

NEXT WEEK ON THE BLOG

Book Review: Taken by Jennifer Dawson

There will be another book review, but I’m not sure what yet!

NEW ON MY SHELVES

There’s a theme this week. Can you see it?

The Christmas Gift by Monica McInerney is less than 35 pages long lol but it sounded cute, and I was browsing Christmas titles for the HoHoHo Readathon! I usually read novellas during readathons, which is probably cheating a bit, but they’re so easy to get a full story and move on to the next. I have a couple of actual novels that are on my ‘maybe read’ list, if I have enough time.

Bought:

For Review:

And that’s it from me! I hope you all had a wonderful week. I can’t believe it’s nearly the end of October already 😮

Our weather has turned and it’s starting to become warm. I am not ready for summer! It is allegedly spring (my allergies agree) but it’s almost at the point where I’m considering breaking out my fan at night. I’m not quite there yet though, there’s apparently some sporadic winter weather on its way. I’m not sure I believe it, looking at the blue sky right now!

My iron infusion went well, although it took 50 minutes instead of 15, but they knew I was a challenge beforehand 🙂 I had to lay there and watch morning tv, the horror.

I just started this one this morning, it’s moving VERY quickly. The crime took place within the first 8%, we just dived straight in to the story (and there’s a super obvious suspect I’m assuming didn’t do it!)

Review of Here Comes The Witch by Ani Gonzalez

NEXT WEEK ON THE BLOG

Book Review: Debauched by Jennifer Dawson
Book Review: Christmas at the Gin Shack by Catherine Miller

It turns out I have a period of time where I thought I’d reviewed books and didn’t 🙁 so I’ll be slowly making my way through those over the next few weeks.

NEW ON MY SHELVES

Origin and The Furthest Station are both really pretty hardcover books, the latter being a novella. The rest are Kindle versions.

Bought:

Apparently I can’t resist a sale when it comes to ebooks!

For Review:

I was up until just before 2:30am this morning reading this baby. I thought it’d take me the weekend to read my way through it, but I could not put it down. It’s been a long while since a book did that to me!

I have made close to zero progress in my blog ahead challenge so far, but I have written a bunch of notes for books I have read over the past few months…some of which I didn’t actually remember reading, oops!

This week has been super slow for some reason. You know those days that just drag and drag? This week was full of them. I’m getting an iron infusion bright and early at 6:30am tomorrow (yikes!) which I’m almost glad about. Maybe I won’t be so tired in the near future, and since it’s so early, I should be home for breakfast – although I might need to take a nap afterwards. I have awful veins, so I’m trying to stay hydrated. Water is so boring 🙁

(All book covers in this post will take you to their respective Goodreads pages).

I’m only a few pages into this so haven’t really got a feel for it yet, but the main character is an 84 year old lady who is searching for the perfect gin & tonic (despite not being a drinker myself, I appreciate looking for the perfect tasting something – for me it’s ginger ale soda in the USA which SUCKS BEYOND BELIEF! It’s not gingery at all, and every time I go there I try a few more…ginger beer soda doesn’t count, it’s not the same). Oops, how’s that for off topic randomness?

LAST WEEK ON THE BLOG

There were two posts on the blog last week (I know, how weird!)

The Sunday Post (#2)
Review of Pressed to Death by Kirsten Weiss

NEW ON MY SHELVES

Mainly the virtual sort (I have some actual REAL books winging my way next week, exciting!)

Although I totally just remembered, I got a paperback copy of Big Little Lies. All those Emmys have convinced me I need to see Alexandar Skarsgård in it watch it then read it! Everything else is on my Kindle though:

Bought:

For Review

I haven’t bought or received this many books in a long time, it’s kind of exciting! Even though I have a zillion other books to read, I’m sure I’ll fit them all in *cough* at some point.

Hope you all had a great week and weekend. Who knows, I might even have more posts go up this week 🙂

Two posts in one day, what is happening?! IS IT A SIGN THE APOCALYPSE?! I don’t blog for a month and then suddenly…

Okay I’ll stop being dramatic now.

I realised while going through my blog posts earlier that I’ve not done my monthly overview of books since January. Yikes! I might try to start that again next month.

As mentioned in my blog ahead challenge post earlier, I’ve dropped out of university for this semester. I’ll go back next year, hopefully refreshed and with a better outlook. This year has been such a struggle for me motivation wise.

I did finally catch up on Preacher which is such a weird show, but in a good way. Now I’m just waiting for The Librarians to come back! I watched the first movie of the film trilogy The Librarians is based on the other day, it was so cheesetastic. It’s a wannabe Indiana Jones and I enjoyed it a lot (I’ve never pretended to have good taste haha)

As for books…

CURRENTLY READING

Nothing! But I did just finish the first two books of the Bewitched by Chocolate series by H.Y. Hanna, so I’m thinking my next book will be the third one. I do love the covers of this series:

LAST WEEK ON THE BLOG

Nothing, but I did sign up for the October blog ahead challenge 🙂

I thought it would be a good time to start doing these posts again. You know, when something actually happens haha. As a follow up to my last post (which was forever ago, oops!) I did pass my chemistry unit, with 51% overall. By the skin of my teeth (I’m annoyed that I went from 87% down to that, but whatever. I’ll take it!)

Uni break has been nice. I have done absolutely nothing though. I’m in a reading slump. Like, I want to read, but I don’t want to read; and nothing is really holding my interest (I keep trying though!) Usually when I’m in a reading slump, I’m watching all the tv shows. But I haven’t been doing that either! I’ve caught the first three episodes of season 2 of Preacher; now I’m just watching them pile up and will marathon them at some point (when I’m meant to be working on an assignment, no doubt).

I have been listening to music a lot. With the passing of both Chris Cornell and Chester Bennington recently, it hasn’t been exactly happy music *sigh*

Anyway, on to the books!

CURRENTLY READING

Down and Derby by Alex Cohen and Jennifer Barbee. While on break I’ve decided I need a hobby, and there’s a roller derby info night coming up in early August. I’m taking myself along and I intend to sign up as fresh meat, so I’m learning all I can in the meantime!

A Caribbean Mystery by Agatha Christie. I’ve been reading this for a while now, I have no idea why I’m stuck.

Magic Rises by Ilona Andrews. I put this down in April and haven’t picked it up again *sigh* I sort of hate the plot after the last few books, so I’m hoping some distance will make it easier to read when I do pick it up again.

LAST WEEK ON THE BLOG

lol nothing. And I’m not sure what’s upcoming either (I do have a couple of drafts sitting around, I should do something with those).

And that’s it from me 🙂
