Sunday Post 89, It's Monday, What are you reading? 74


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/

Let's see ... last week shaped up much the same as the week before - no great dramas to report.

To be honest, I prefer it that way. Give me a quiet real life any day, and I can get my excitement from books and movies - lol.

I took Spawn to see Black Panther yesterday, which I had been promising him we'd do. We had what he calls a "town day" - we went into town on the bus, went to the local gaming store, the movies, and had Subway for lunch. All in all a good day and the movie was GREAT. I'll post a review of it later in the week, though it will mostly be lots of shouting about how great it was.

I also finished Etched in Bone yesterday. I probably stayed up a bit late, but I was invested and wanted to get through it. I enjoyed it a lot, and so there'll be a review of that this week, too. Hooray for scheduled posts. :)

What else. Just work, and a quiet weekend. I painted my nails pink today and played some Dragon Age. Spawn got a certificate at school for variety of vocab in his descriptive writing, so I'll post that as a bit of a brag, since I don't usually do that.

It's been raining and windy today - perfect gaming and nail painting weather.

I'm still reading Wizards and Glass - that's going to take a fair bit to get through - and I have City Stained Red by Sam Sykes lined up, but I'm thinking of reading something a bit more light-hearted before I dive into that one. I'm not sure yet.

What about you? What are you reading? How's your week?

  3. I very much want to see Black Panther after all the fuss about it. I like the idea of painting nails when the weather is grim - I did too, but had to remove it the next day as it all chipped off! Glad you hear Spawn won an award for great use of vocabulary - perhaps he will be a writer... Have a great week:)

  4. I don't have any desire to see Black Panther. I was never a marvel fan and I still am not. I do want to see a Wrinkle in Time that I am kinda looking forward to. Have a great week of reading!

  9. Glad you week went well. I'm taking the morning off because the children's baketball program I volunteer with had its final weekend which meant I was busy all weekend between games and season end celebration. I thought i would catch up some rest, but I stayed up late last night finishing a book! Donna from Girl Who Reads

  10. I don't watch movies often but have heard great things about Black Panther. The Others is my current favorite series. I just picked up Written in Red again and immediately got sucked into the story. I hope that doesn't mean I have to read the whole series before I can escape. Come see my week here. Happy reading!
