Back on normal schedule folks! This week has been.. eh. The first of the week was awful, but the second half of the week wasn’t too bad so I can’t say it was a bad week, but it wasn’t great. One of those weeks you survive.
First check in of Victober! I’m so pleased I have some things to talk about for this week, and I enjoyed everything I read. As always for these posts I will have a video as well as the post up. Continue reading
This is going to be very, very short. What I’m going to do during this month is try to do two separate wrap-ups. The usual weekly wrap-ups will be my usual mess of random things I read and the secondary halves will be my weekly Victober wrap-up. This week was a very rough week, a national tragedy of course occurred in the States, and explosions at my place of work left my whole week disrupted. So outside of Victober reads there were only a few things to look at! Continue reading
We skipped last week’s installment of Looking Forward Too unfortunately. Our home AC unit decided it needed some attention and the bulk of the weekend/any free time I had was spent in our basement tending to it. Continue reading
Coming in a little late, with half good reasons today! I had intended to write and post this yesterday, however I was locked in at work for about 10 hours at work yesterday. There were some explosions on the large plant I work on, so for safety/security reasons they kept us locked into safe havens. No one was seriously hurt, but it definitely shook up the day. I spent several hours desperately trying to track down my father who works in the plant in production (he’s fine), so the adrenaline dump made the day a big ole’ blur. So see! I did put it off the first day but the second day was with good reason!
Long story out of the way, I read some pretty okay books last week, and as always there is a video for this if you’d rather listen than read. Continue reading
It’s October (almost)! Which means it’s spooky season! It also means it’s Victorian October in some corners of the internet so I think I’ll be joining in. I’m in a very classical mood, and honestly by chance I realized I’m already reading some things that would fit into the read-a-thon. I’m not really looking at the challenges, but more looking at reading just some good classical, Victorian goodies. The readathon is hosted by some lovely ladies on Booktube: Beyond the Pages, Books and Things, Kate Howe, LucytheReader
As always I have to say I am bad at TBRs so this is a rough guide of ‘things I have that I might read’. MBR? A Might Be Read? Yeah, sure. It’s a Victober MBR. There we go. And as always there is a video if you’d rather listen than read, the link is in the sidebar.
This week was fairly busy but I managed to get a good amount read I feel. A good variety of things for sure. One horror, one (very chunky) classic, a cozy mysery, and a literary fiction immigration story. Not too shaby!
As always if you want to listen as opposed to read the channel is linked in the sidebar!
I’m running a little late, I know. To be honest the post has been made since Thursday, but events in the past few days have kept me up and moving – away from my PC so here we are! Continue reading
Last week was less of a dud week and more of an ‘outside forces are affecting my reading’ week. I DNF’d three books, one because I was not enjoying it and two were just wrong time kind of reads. So ultimately I finished one thing. As always a video is up if you’d rather read than listen. Continue reading
A bit late today as I’m fighting off some horrible sickness. I had hiccups THREE times in 9 hours yesterday! My throat has turned into sandpaper and my chest feels like I’m wearing an anchor. So, I’m happy I’m up and moving at all! But let’s instead look… to the future! Continue reading
