This week was my last week off from school before I’m done forever! So I wanted to take advantage of it. My goal was to read a lot, but that didn’t exactly happen. And I’m okay with it. I needed there to be no pressure this week – reading or otherwise – and just get some good relaxing time in. So, while I didn’t read as much as I would have liked, I did really enjoy just doing nothing right now.
The one book I did finish this week is Horns by Joe Hill. I’ve been meaning to read a Joe Hill book for a while, and I am so glad I finally did! I really enjoyed both the story and the writing, and I’m excited to read another one of his books soon! Since I read this, in part, for the Reading New England Challenge, I will be doing a full review, most likely sometime next week.
I’m still chugging along with Victoria: The Queen by Julia Baird and the audiobook of Misery by Stephen King, both of which I’m enjoying, even though they’re pretty slow reads. This weekend, I’m hoping to read Everything You Never Told Me by Celeste Ng, because my cousin loved it and asked me to read it so she has someone to talk about it with. I still haven’t read my nonfiction book of the month (I won’t finish Victoria in time), and I don’t think I’ll have time to get through Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, so I’m trying to find another, relatively short, book I can read this month. Recommendations are welcome!
Other than that, I’ve pretty much been catching up on TV and sleep before I start on the rest of my thesis. Which has been kind of great. Can we talk about this week’s episode of American Horror Story? Because it might have been my favorite episode EVER. So good!
Anyway, I hope you’re all having a great weekend! I will be spending it reading and sleeping. And maybe catching up on a few more movies.
P.S. Good luck to everyone participating in Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon! I decided to opt out this time because I’m just really tired and feel like I would be putting too much pressure on myself to read. But I did enjoy the last one (in April)! Have fun! I’m looking forward to seeing what you all end up reading!
