a week in the life of…
This week was the first time in a while that I felt like I was SORT OF on top of my blog — I got caught up on comments, and even scheduled a few posts more than 24 hours in advance, which has been a struggle for me since the start of the year!
Outside of that, it was a weird and long week, much like the last few have been. The storms sweeping most of the US have given us endless heavy rain for days (closer to weeks) on end, which isn’t a fun combo with SAD. I am very, very ready for spring. ? On top of everything else, I woke up sick as hell yesterday and spent most of the day sleeping off fevers. Bleh!
a few last words…
I hope the weather gets better, and also that the SAD will disappear!
I also got a copy of The Takeover Effect last week, I can’t wait to read it 🙂
Scheduling is not happening at all these days, I just want to read! Not write reviews of most anything else…
Have a wonderful week ahead and happy reading!
Thank you, Lexxie! How’s the weather over there? 🙂 And congrats on also getting The Takeover Effect. Doesn’t it just sound great? And I love the cover. It’s so classy and brooding haha. Happy reading to you too! ♥
Hope the weather gets better for you. It has felt like Spring here the past few days but apparently we may have some more snow coming.
I’m so not on top of my blog or reading at the mo, I’m in a bit of a slump and need to pull myself out!!!
Thank you! I hope you don’t get too much snow – unless you *want* more snow, in which case, obviously I’d hope you get it haha! I hope your slump passes soon! ♥ Crossing my fingers and sending you motivational vibes!
We had about 20cm a few weeks ago….I love it for a day and then I’m fed up of it! If it can come and go in a day I’ll be happy ?
omg what is that dream daddy book???? Also I’m sorry the weather and ill has been so blegh recently! We’ve been super lucky as Spring seems to have arrived here and this weekend has had such beautiful sunshine. I’ve been using every excuse to get out of the house to sit outside to help with my depression at the moment. I’ll wish some sunshine over the ocean for you
It’s a collection of comics about the DD characters, written by 2 of the game’s co-creators! (Not Arin and Dan, of course) It looks so cute.
Thank you, love. I’m so glad the weather has been nicer over there!! It really does wonders for my mental health whenever spring rolls around so I’m excited to hear it’s been helping you, too. ♥♥ thank you!
GUESS WHAT I GOT APPROVED FOR (haha)
There’s a book for Dream Daddy?!!?!?! Sorry about the rain love, we have been drowning in rain which is nice because we really need the rain here in California. I hope you enjoy Aurora Rising and HOORAY for being caught up on your blog!
I freaked out a little when I saw it on Netgalley! I’m very excited haha. And thank you ♥ I’m glad you’re getting some much-needed rain! I’d happily send your ours if I could. 😛
YOU GET TO READ AURORA RISING EARLY?!?! ?
*sorry I passed out* ? I hope you love it because it’s one of my most anticipated reads! Eeee I can’t wait to see AIDAN again… ? I do hope the digital copy is good because I prefer the physical copy of Illuminae over the eBook, and I rarely have a preference!
Hahaha thank you love!! I’ve already started it but I’m only 1 chapter in so far. It seems to be formatted like a regular novel so it’s working fine so far in ebook format, though a little bit of me is missing the “multimedia” aspect!
Oh *SOBS*!!!! Okay I’m actually glad to know that now rather than when I see it on the shelf!
True, it would be such a sad thing to reach for it on the shelf expecting one thing and finding something else entirely! ?
Somebody (misterkristoff himself) teased us all on insta about AIDAN so I will only be upset if that’s not true! Lol
I knoooow! But Amie posted a spoiler and said it isn’t from the Aurora Cycle books… I can’t decide if I believe them or not ?
Love this post / weekly feature! I think I’m going to start doing it in the Spring. SO jealous of your ARC of Girl with Sharp Sticks
It’s really fun! 😀 I had been thinking about doing it for ages and finally decided to join in last weekend, and now I’m excited about it. I hope you enjoy it, too!
My SAD is also hating the weather. We just got some snow and I’m hoping sunshine is to follow!
Fingers crossed for you!! We haven’t gotten any snow this winter (we usually don’t, of course), but we’re getting ridiculous amounts of rain. It’s rained almost every day for… 2 weeks? Maybe closer to 3? And we’re expecting rain every single day for the next 15 days. END MY MISERY, SUNSHINE. ?
Of course we got a foot and a half of snow last night and I had to leave for work at 6am in it before the roads were properly plowed UGH. Luckily it’s well-cleared now and got nice and sunny after! I am counting down the days until I can read outside.
EWWW. I’m sorry! I’m glad it’s all cleared up enough for you to be safe now, though. <3
