Sunday post 32; It's Monday, What are you reading? 20
The Sunday Post - a kind of catch-up chat - is hosted by Kimba here: http://caffeinatedbookreviewer.com/ and It's Monday! What are you reading? Is hosted by Kathryn here: http://bookdate.blogspot.co.nz/
Let's see .... I blogged! And not just a Sunday post! I rattled off some very quick sanctuary musings: https://lifetheuniverseandcats.blogspot.co.nz/2016/05/sanctuary.html That's all though.
I need to do a short reviews post, as I now have .... seven, SEVEN??? books to write up reviews for. Yeah ... definitely going to do a short reviews post for those. I got sucked into the All for the Game trilogy by Nora Sakavic, and when I say "sucked in" I mean I bought the ebooks and then read the whole trilogy in three days. It's not for everyone, but I really, really enjoyed it.
I haven't picked up Royal Assassin since last weekend. Yesterday I took spawn to see Captain America: Civil War and then to the gaming store afterward. We both enjoyed the movie and it's the first truly long movie he's sat through so that's something to celebrate. :)
I'm still picking at Perdido Street Station, and also The Girl With all the Gifts, because I keep getting distracted. I do have Lord of the Shadows by Jennifer Fallon lurking in the background, and once I read that - the Second Sons trilogy will be the first series I finish in what I boldly declared in January was the Year of the Series. Ah, youth.
So that means that book three of the Dark Tower is ALSO coming up for me very soon. :D
What else. I've been stitching a bit this past week - there's a stitcher on Instagram called craftinggeek who, every May, does a 30for30crafting challenge - where you work on a craft for 30 minutes for 30 days. I decided to take it up and see how I go, because usually I tell myself I'm too tired, or whatever. I've managed six days so far (with a bit of extra stitching on Saturday night at my friend's) and here is day one vs yesterday - which was day six. I have about four hours left in this slot for my rotation, and then I'll be back to Circe - so I'm hoping I can make good progress on that too, and maybe also carry the stitching habit over to next month - I'll see. :)
I also got some books from Book Depository last week, including some bookmarks to be coloured in, which is a great idea with the whole colouring trend being what it is right now.
How about you?
How's your week?
What are you reading?
