Hello people! I hope you all are well, and that this first week of February was good! If things go as planned, right now I would be at my parents house. Last visit was before Christmas and now, while I am writing this post, I am really looking forward to go and see them, so I really hope to be there while you are reading this!
What am I reading?
I am a bit ashamed of it, but I am still reading Tyrant’s Throne. It is taking me forever to read this book, and it is mostly because lately I am not reading at home. At all. It seems like every time I pick up the book my boyfriend has something vital to tell me. And if it’s not him, it is Ade who try and do something that he shouldn’t. It is maddening! But things are looking better now (mostly because my working schedule and my bf one are not so incompatible anymore, in the last weeks we played a bit of a jigsaw with our schedule, and because they were renovating the flat near ours, and the coming and going of workers made Ade standing on attention quite often), so I am confident that I would have more time for this book. Yay! And then I have started Unsouled but I can say that our future together won’t be a happy one. I don’t really care for it, and if things don’t get better soon I think I would drop it.
What Have I read?
In this last period I didn’t read while at home, but on the lucky side I have read quite a lot while I was outside. Some long breaks at work, and some long commute time did their magic, and I have read quite a lot of books. The first week of February was really rich and varied. Daisy Jones and The Six was a book I have started in January but that I finished this month. I loved the way in which is written. It is really peculiar and well developed. But I didn’t care a lot for the story itself. I am happy to have read it, because I was curious but I didn’t love it. And Shall Machines Surrender was a big disappointment, because we have a great world-building and so many interesting things, but the plot is unbalanced (and I have to say that I don’t understand the whys of it) and I didn’t care for the characters. But from now on things get better! Spellswept was a great reading. It is a novella, so it was short, but I appreciated it and the magic of it. It is, in some ways, an empowering book, and I loved it!
Half-Off Ragnarok is the third book in this fun series, and I have some mixed feeling for it. On one hand it was a ton of fun, and the world-building in this series is fantastic. It is so rich! And this book is not about Verity but about his brother, Alex. And I was happy to see more of this strange family. But it was a tad annoying, because Alex is constantly making bad choice after bad choice. But it was an enjoyable reading, and I would go on with this series for sure. The Roommate was a sweet and fun book, and it has some interesting ideas in there. I really like the project that the two MC started in there. And I think that we really need something like that. And then the book that may be the best book of the month, even if we are at the beginning of February: The Blood Heir. I loved this book! It was just so good to be back again, even if now it is the turn of the new generation. It was a fast, action packed book,with nostalgia and fun in it. Ton of nostalgia and fun. It was pure bliss!
What Would I Read?
When I wrote down my February TBR I didn’t keep in mind my reading goals, but since I am doing great with the TBR (I have read 4 books out 8, so I am feeling optimistic!) I decided to go back to the goals, and so I really hope to start Pox as my non-fiction book. I am really really curious about this title! And then I hope to start Winter’s Orbit. All the amazing reviews out there are making me really curious, and since this title is on my TBR, well, I dare say that its moment has come!
Blogging and Personal Life
Last weeks were quite full, nothing special, just long hours at work and a change in the schedule of my bf, that take a bit of juggle around it. But nothing serious. But things are going back to normal, even if I don’t think I would relax a lot, since it is time to start and do some work for the new house. Like finding some furniture, for example. But I really hope that this would leave me with enough energy to blog!
Anyway, I have read quite a lot this week, and I was really lucky because the majority of the books were so good! And I have also watched something, yay! I think I would write a post about what I have watched and what I hope to watch next, like a sort of W.W.W… Wednesday but for the drama and the tv shows. Maybe it would help me watch more things, accountability is a great thing!
Here are some picture of Ade, just because! I cannot believe that he is almost one year old!! He was so small when we took him, and now… he is big! But he is the sweetest boy ever. The only problem is that he is a bit delusional about his size. He believe himself to be small. And light.
On the blogging side, I think I have two posts to write about series. I am not so sure about them, because I haven’t decided yet if there it would be two of them or just one. We would see. And, as I was saying before, I was thinking about writing something about the things I have watched. But at the moment, nothing is sure!
And what about you? How was your week? And what have you read?? Let me know!
