Sunday post 20; It's Monday! What are you reading? post 8
Linking up with Kimba at http://caffeinatedbookreviewer.com/ for the Sunday post, and with Kathryn at http://bookdate.blogspot.co.nz/ for It's Monday! What are you reading?
The Sunday Post is a chance to catch up with what you've been doing, and with what you're going to do for the week, and of course It's Monday! is all about the books. :)
Once again, I tripped and fell off the radar. I'm not sure why, but there we have it.
Spawn went back to school for the new year on February 1, so perhaps that's part of it - settling into the school routine again.
For me, that means getting up a good hour earlier at least than I have been, which is a struggle, given that I am certainly NOT a morning person.
Otherwise, things continue on much the same. I'm still applying for jobs. I have picked up some casual proof-reading, so that's a start. And somehow I've been drafted as a sort of parent help some mornings for spawn's class to help with reading and writing. Which is fine, I don't mind, but I'm just not very good with children in large groups.
I'm trying to re-set parts of my own routine so I'm not passively sitting in front of the computer or the TV for large parts of the weekday. Even if I'm writing or reading, it's better for my brain parts.
What else. I do have blog posts planned for this week, so hopefully this time I'll actually do them.
I'm hoping to write up reviews for the Captive Prince trilogy by C S Pacat, and also Rosemary and Rue by Seanan McGuire. I also went to see Deadpool last week, so am hoping to write that up as well. I also have two or three other posts in mind, though I might not get them done this week. They're simmering away, though.
As for what I'm reading ... I had a bit of a mini-slump after finishing Rosemary and Rue, so nothing for a few days. However, I'd bought The Martian on iBooks a while back when it was on special, so I'm reading that at the moment. It's very science-y and a bit dense, but I'm getting more into it now.
As for what's coming up; book 2 of The Dark Tower, finally. And then ... I'm not sure after that. I'll have to poke around a bit.
How's your week been?
What are you reading?
