Welcome to another Sunday. I’ve made it through another week and it’s been kind of busy. I’ve been trying to grab the last few presents for Christmas shopping, buying stuff for myself, and I’ve been drawn into the idea of bullet journaling by Nereyda always going on about how wonderful hers is so I’ve been getting stuff together to start a bullet journal in 2017. I’ve been watching a lot of videos and looking at a lot of different posts about it this past week. Some people are so artistic and I am jealous!
I’ve mostly just been working and watching TV otherwise, though. Work is crazy hectic because we essentially have 5 more days to get out month’s work done and I so don’t think we’ll manage. Add into the fact that people have been off sick with a bug that’s shooting around the office (which I better not get because throwing up is the actual worst) and we are behind.
Also, can someone please explain to me why I am always drawn into these offers at supermarkets? All I wanted was a couple of rolls of wrapping paper and I came out with six! All because there was an offer on and in my mind I decided buying more than I needed meant I got a bargain although I spent more money than I intended to. It was premium wrapping paper, though. That makes it better, right?
What I’ve Been Reading
I’m not reading as much lately but these are the few things I’ve read this week. I loved How Not To Let Go so much. It was a great romance and it concluded so well. I had a few reservations about certain parts of the story, but over all I loved it. I then moved on to same fantasy because that is what I’ve been fancying. I read Iron Kin because it’s been sat on my shelf forever and then I’ve started The Alchemist’s of Loom because it’s the middle of December and it’s out next month! How did this happen? All I can say about that book right now is DRAGONS!!!!!
New To Me
Yes, I know, I shouldn’t be buying books, but one is a Christmas book with a fake relationship in it (my catnip). The other two? Well, there was a Kindle big deal on. When was I going to get them for 99p again? I’m planning on reading The Most Wonderful Time of the Year before Christmas as my final Christmas read. I also need to fit in reading 4 library books and a bunch of ARCs… there need to be more hours in the day.
I have gone a bit mad with my ARC copies this week. I know I shouldn’t have but I couldn’t help myself. I went onto Netgalley to post a couple of reviews and add some links… and then I requested a few books. I have issues. I am excited about them, though. Especially Done Dirt Cheap and Miranda and Caliban (for which I need to read/watch The Tempest). I’ve got a lot of review copies to read now.
How has your week been? Read any books lately? And can anyone motivate me into wrapping my Christmas presents?
