Weekly Update: June 30-July 5, 2020

Happy Sunday, bibliophiles!

All things considered, this week’s been alright. It’s July already (WE MADE IT THROUGH HALF OF THE YEAR, EVERYBODY!), so I’m looking forward to more sunny weather, but not really looking forward to boiling in the afternoon. (It’s supposed to get up to 90 degrees next week…*shudders* I like hot, but not that hot, let’s be clear…) After last week’s bookstore haul, I enjoyed two AMAZING books, and I finally got around to reading The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy! Needless to say, I checked book 2 out at the library right after I finished it.

I also started Camp NaNoWriMo on Wednesday, and it’s going smoothly so far! Since I recently finished the first draft of one of my WIPs, I’m working on a short story for NaNoWriMo. It’s at about 1,100 words so far.

Other than that, I’ve made some progress on my puzzle, slowly started summer homework (😑), went on another lovely hike, and blew through season one of What We Do in the Shadows. (Highly recommended for anyone who wants a laugh. You have to get through a few episodes, but it gets HYSTERICAL.)

Terrifying. What would you even call that? | You are my life ...

  1. HITCHHIKERS! Omg I love that whole series. I bought a hardback with all five books by Adams and binged it in double quick time. Have reread it a number of times too. I just love Douglas’ sense of humour so much. So sad that he died so young. Good luck with Slaughterhouse Five. That’s a book I need to read myself. Bought it forever ago but still haven’t found the time to read it…life of a bookworm lol! 😅😊🧡💚💛

    1. Aaah, isn’t it so pretty? 😭 The Kingdom of Back and The Sound of Stars are both worth every penny, absolutely (even though the latter had kind of a weird ending). And thanks so much for the NaNoWriMo wishes! 🙂 I’m so glad you’re enjoying my blog 🙂 💗
