Hey, everyone! Sorry for the lack of weekly rewind posts lately– Bee and I have both been busy with life stuff the past couple weeks! BUT. We’re here now to update you on what we’ve been up to over the past week or so.
Not too much exciting to report on my end! I visited my parents in Florida over the weekend and the beginning of the week, which was a lot of fun, as always. I took some walks on the beach, did some shopping, and ate a lot of ice cream. I dealt with flight issues both ways, but everything ended up working out okay! My roommate and I are moving out of our current apartment at the end of July, and this week we looked at a house that seems pretty perfect for us. Fingers crossed everything works out and we get it!
I’ve been a bit absent from the blogging world the last two weeks, haven’t I? Well, I started this new treatment at the hospital… It’s, roughly translated, called Multifunctional Psychotherapeutic Outpatient Therapy. It’s 4 days a week, 12 weeks. And it’s quite intense, emotionally. So I’ve been too tired to do anything since I started it last week, which is why I moved my annual blogging hiatus up a few weeks and did it now. I’m alright though! Not to worry. I’ll be back to blogging very very soon.
ARCs // Thank you to St. Martins Press for sending me an e-ARC of Everything Must Go, and thanks to the wonderful people I traded with on Twitter for the other four ARCs!
Bought // I couldn’t resist this adorable f/f novella or the next volume of my current graphic novel obsession.
None! *weeps* I did get my physical copy of The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice & Virtue and it’s preeeetty but I’m too lazy to make a picture and all that hassle.
Books Read/Currently Reading
Read // Dear Martin was the clear favorite of this week, and one of the best books I’ve read in a long time. Everyone needs to put this on their TBR. Knit One, Girl Two was an adorable f/f novella that made me happy. I ended up DNFing Girls Made of Snow & Glass about two-thirds of the way through because NOTHING. HAPPENED. The plot and the world were lackluster, the characters had no personality, the retelling elements were unimaginative, and I simply do not understand the hype surrounding this book. The Revenge Playbook was a wonderful surprise– feminist as hell and full of girl power. This latest volume of Sex Criminals was my least favorite of the series so far, but still enjoyable.
Currently reading // I just started Little & Lion, but I cannot wait to get into it!!
I also haven’t really read anything?? I started a bunch of books but I couldn’t keep my focus because of the abovementioned tiredness so. I will hold off on saying I’m actually reading something until I make it past the 30% mark.
Currently Obsessing Over
It’s Been a Minute with Sam Sanders // The new project that Sam Sanders (former host of my beloved NPR Politics Podcast) has been working on for the past few months is finally a real podcast! And it’s every bit as good as I dreamed it would be. The Friday weekly roundups are my favorite, I think. If you’re looking for a new podcast, I highly recommend this one!
Except for re-watching FRIENDS completely, I’m not obsessing over anything at the moment. Geesh, Bee… Quite the contribution you made to this post. XD
How was your week? Did you get any exciting books? What are you currently reading or obsessing over?
