It's Monday! What are you reading? is hosted here: http://bookdate.blogspot.co.nz/ by Kathryn and does what it says on the tin. :)
Let's see ... I worked. I played Dragon Age: Awakenings. I did not do much reading last week, however. I stumbled over a mini-slump instead, which really wasn't much fun. Hence, getting through Awakenings so quickly (also I accidentally skipped a bunch of side-quests). I launched Dragon Age 2 again today. I always say that Origins was my first love and Inquisition is my true love. DA2 ... I guess DA2 is my bit on the side but I do love it.
Anyway. Yesterday, with determination and fortitude and blah blah blah I sat down with The Drawing of the Three, and made actual, real, genuine progress with a book. I've read it before, though not for many years, and I forgot that this is peak King. Like. This is Peak King. It's King right at the top of his game. I got through another 50 pages or so today, and I'm on track to finish this week. Which will be nice, as my goodreads stats keep slipping - lol.
I'm still picking at Perdido Street Station but I've had to put it down for a bit, there was a sequence that was ... hard to read. I might pick it up this week again, I'll see.
A friend of a friend and her son came down from Christchurch unexpectedly yesterday so spawn and I spent a large part of the afternoon with them. It was fun, but both spawn and I were ready to go home by about 7.30. The friend is my stitch-and-watch Saturday night friend and asked me if I'd want to come back with my stitching, even though her friend and son were still there - they were staying with them. Honestly, as much as I enjoy our Saturday nights, I just wanted to go home.
Today, I got all my grown-up things done, and launched DA2, like I said, and friends of spawn showed up (there's a rant/post for another day) so he was well occupied for the afternoon.
For the coming week, I have work, hopefully finising The Drawing of the Three, and possibly catching up with Versailles and maybe also The Walking Dead. I'd like to get some writing done, too maybe and also possibly some stitching. Hopefully I'll also get at least one blog post done - a short reviews post. :)
How's your week looking?
