about that ARC ban…
8 hauls this week is definitely a higher number than I aim for, BUT! Born Under a Good Sign is one I’ve already read and loved — the pubs just wanted to send a print copy for IG marketing; thanks, Llewellyn! — Come Tumbling Down is a highly anticipated novella, and I’ve already read Mindy Kim, Everything is Beautiful, and Snug. So, given that I’ve already read 50% of the ARCs I got this week, not bad!
outside the blogosphere…
This was just one of those okay weeks — nothing awesome happened, but there wasn’t anything awful, either. I worked a bit extra, so I was tired, but now I’m in the middle of a 3-day weekend for Veteran’s Day tomorrow! I’m really started to feel the holiday spirit creeping in and I’m more than ready for it!
what I watched…
? Nightmare Cinema (2018) — 4 stars (I enjoyed this one! It wasn’t anything mind-blowing, but it was fun and had some great scenes. It’s a bit of an anthology film and one of the stories it told featured a personal fear of mine — no spoilers, but it’s related to surgery — and that’s definitely stuck with me for the last few days!)
what I listened to…
? Parkway Drive (Yep, another week of these guys on shuffle.)
what I played…
? Stardew Valley (Another week of nonstop SDV game time.)
? My Time at Portia (I finally bought this and played it a little this week! I haven’t been wowed by it yet, but I’m hoping it gets better as you go on.)
a few last words…
^ I cried a little over this one. These babes have both been through so much and seeing people reduce their struggles and triumps down to “I can’t believe he gained weight!” makes me want to set things on fire. FUCK that. Gerard and Brendan both went through hell and they’re happy and healthy AND STILL DAMN GORGEOUS so don’t @ me ?
