Weekly Update: October 5-11, 2020

Happy Sunday, bibliophiles! I hope this week has treated you all well.

Now that all of the big tests and quizzes that I’ve been stressing out over are over with, I’m feeling a lot better. And now I have a long weekend to look forward to next week, which I’m ECSTATIC for! Just the break I needed.

I had another fairly lackluster reading week, but I enjoyed everything that I read. I only got around to reading two books (well, one, technically–I finished the first one on Sunday evening), and that’s all because of the sheer length of To Sleep in a Sea of Stars. (Expect a review next week.) I also had my school’s book club meeting for Aurora Rising, and everybody seemed to love it, which filled my heart with immeasurable joy…πŸ₯Ί

Is this gif about To Sleep in a Sea of Stars or my AP Bio quiz/Precalc test this week? You decide…

Other than that, I went back to the library and got a good haul, caught up on Fargo, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and Raised by Wolves (nearly finished with the latter…), and I’ve finally gotten slightly back into the groove of outlining for NaNoWriMo. Oh, and The Other Side of the Sky and Skyhunter just came in the mail!

    1. Thanks so much! πŸ’— Yeah, it’s definitely an interesting book–I’ll elaborate more in the review, but the first half wasn’t great, but it majorly picked up by about the 400 page mark (which is…kind of worrying, not gonna lie, but hey, it’s a really long book 🀣) There’s definitely some sci-fi violence in there (prominently at the beginning), but I don’t remember anything overly gory/bloody, but my memory could be hazy. I’m glad you’re looking forward to it! πŸ™‚
