Sunday post 67, It's Monday, what are you reading? 53

Let's see ... last week was pretty uneventful. I went to Winz to get the benefit process started all over again, and did a few hours' work at the community paper. Which is good but it's only five hours a week at most, and while J does start his fulltime job tomorrow ... it's not enough. So I'm looking and looking and looking ....
Anyway. Moving on.
Spawn spent Friday night at the home of a friend of his, so I took the opportunity to binge-watch season 2 of Versailles, which was a lot of fun. I love that kind of historical drama, although there's a lot more nudity than one would expect. Not as many boobs as you'd see in your average episode of Game of Thrones, but still, boobs were seen. And butts. (Heh. Butts.)
The series itself focuses on the creation of Versailles and on the life of Louis the Fourteenth, his brother Phillippe and of course the rest of the court and court intrigues.
I also played some Dragon Age Inquisition and went to my friend's house on Saturday night for our usual stitch-and-watch session.
We went to a fundraiser quiz night on Wednesday, and ended up coming second, which was great. We went to another one today, but placed out of the running in fourth. I love quizzing, and we're also going to a quiz next Tuesday, which is part of our local library's library week celebrations:
For what I'm reading - still chipping away at Hamilton, albeit very slowly, and I'm in the home stretch with Tongues of Serpents, which has been a battle. I love the Temeraire series, but this isn't up there with the best of them for me.
Coming up, I'm eyeing the fourth Game of Thrones book - once I've read that I'll dive in to series four, and I also want to read Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire.
Other than that, I'll be applying for jobs, praying to the gods of employment, rent and groceries to get us through another week and ... learning how to be a domestic goddess, I suppose.
In terms of blogging, I want to get my next awesome ladies post up this week, and also a review for Tongues of Serpents. I also might start doing a mobile game review a week - see how I go, but I do play a lot of mobile games.
Got to keep the brain parts going somehow. :)
What about you? How's your week? What are you reading?
