Weekly Update: November 23-29, 2020

Happy Sunday, bibliophiles! I hope this week has treated everybody well. Only one month left in 2020…we can do it…

My Thanksgiving Break was this week, and luckily, only one of my teachers assigned homework, and I was able to get it done last weekend, so that was really nice. I had a lot of time to relax–I picked my Radiohead puzzle back up (I hit a wall with it in October, so I figured that now would be a good time to resume it), and watched Annihilation (AAAAAAAAH), I’m Thinking of Ending Things (excuse me while I internally write a 17-page essay on that one), and the newest episode of Fargo. Thanksgiving dinner was delicious, even though we didn’t have anyone over. And we just got our Christmas tree yesterday, and it smells so nice…🥺

And NaNoWriMo’s almost over! It feels like it’s gone by so fast…but hey, I’m on track to finish my 35,000 words very soon!

I’ve had a bit of a reading slump this week, though…after Clap When You Land, I’ve had a mostly disappointing library haul. So chances are, my Book Review Tuesday next week will *probably* be a bit of rant review…sigh…

But hey, I finished my 2020 Goodreads Reading Challenge! 250 books!

  1. 250 BOOKS???? That’s so impressive! Here I am sitting on 163…at least my challenge was only 150. Still, I’m really impressed.
    Hmm, I’ve been wanting to read Kingdom of Souls for a while (I heard the author talk at a webinar this summer–I actually did my first ever blog post (on my current blog) on that!). What didn’t you like about it?
    Hang on, I’m actually just gonna go check out the goodreads review XD

    1. Thank you! I tried for 300 a few years ago but that was really stressful so I took it down a notch 😅
      Yeah…part of my low rating can probably be chalked up to having my expectations too high, but personally, the action was very understated, it dragged on for too long (close to 500 pages), and it was rather boring. I liked some of the West African-inspired mythology and some of the imagery though ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
