Weekly Update: January 11-17, 2021

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

As I mentioned earlier, the beginning of the week was rather overwhelming, so I had to take a short break from posting so I could get my schoolwork done. But things are quieting down for the time being, so I have a bit more time to wind down.

I *accidentally* got a huge library haul last week (a bunch of my holds came in when I least expected them to), so I had a lot to read. It was definitely a little bit hit-or-miss, but I’m glad to say that some of my most anticipated releases lived up to the hype! I also have some books that I ordered with my gift card that should be ready soonish, and I can’t wait to read them…

I’ve also been steadily working away at editing my main sci-fi WIP, and I finished up my initial edits on Friday! From here, I’ll be doing a whole lot of tweaking for my outline and some other research, but in a few months’ time, I’ll be on my way to writing my second draft!

Other than that, I finished up season 2 of The Mandalorian (*sniffles*), watched Barton Fink, and listened to a whole lot of Julien Baker. I’m also going to start WandaVision tonight with my family, and I’m SUPER excited! (I’ve always had a soft spot for the Vision…)

  1. Oooh, Legendborn got a two star, ouch! Curious to hear more of your thoughts on that since I recently read that as well and it was definitely a mixed bag for me!
    Show rec that you didn’t need but hey you were talking about watching shows so….
    Julie and the Phantoms. If you haven’t watched it…watch it haha.

    1. Yeah, I was pretty sad to give it such a low rating 😦 I just felt like the worldbuilding got rather convoluted and it was unnecessarily long. I probably won’t do a full review but it wasn’t quite my thing. I did like William though skdjhskdjfh
      Oh I’ve seen a few trailers for that one! Not sure if it’s my thing but thanks for the rec! 🙂

    1. GO FORTH
      SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL LIBRARY

      Okay now that it’s been a few hours I watched the first two episodes with the family and it’s definitely interesting! It’s certainly a bit of a slow start but I like the direction where it’s going. I’ll stick around, gotta love Vision 🔸

  2. I recently read Legendborn in December and definitely agree with you though I did enjoy it. While it was very readable, the world felt like it was constantly thrown at you in large chunks of telling instead of showing and since there was so much of the world to explore it kind of flew over my head for the most part. I think I gave it a 4.5.

    Congrats on being close to starting your second draft of your novel!! That’s such a huge accomplishment! 💙
