Sunday Post 98, It's Monday, What are you reading? 83
The Sunday Post - a chance for bloggers to have a chat and a catch-up - is hosted by Kimba, here: https://caffeinatedbookreviewer.com/ and It's Monday! What are you reading? Is hosted by Kathryn, here: https://bookdate.blogspot.co.nz/
Last week was fairly ordinary, if short, because Anzac Day fell on Wednesday this year.
So no work or school on that day, and once again I failed to wake up in time to take Spawn to the Dawn Parade.
Maybe next year. I did hear the guns from one of the parades, though.
Other than that, it was an ordinary week. Spawn was excited about the new Avengers movie, and I was set to take him on Saturday, but felt bleh, so J took him instead. It's the first time they've gone to a movie together, and while it's a nice milestone, I was still a bit :( :( ... even though I had the house to myself.
I watched two truly, truly average movies yesterday and today - Before I Fall, and Hurricane Bianca.
I'm not even going to bother doing reviews for them, they were so ... ehn.
The school holidays are done until July, and I've switched Spawn over to another after-school programme. He needed to switch in May anyway as the one he was in only takes kids until they're 11 and he's turning 11 in a couple of weeks. So the start of the term seemed like the logical time.
I didn't really dive in to readathon this time around - feeling bleh, and just generally lazy. I did, however, finish a book - Rivers of London by Ben Aaronovitch, which was great, and I'll review that later in the week. I also read book 1 of Knight Errant - the new comic series in the Dragon Age franchise. Rather than reviewing that piecemeal, I'll wait until I've read all of them.
I finished The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet, and wrote a review for that last week.
Also on the go at work at lunchtime is The Fifth Season by N. J. Jemisin.
What about you? How's your week? What are you reading?
