Weekly Update: January 25-31, 2021

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

The pseudo-almost-reading slump that I had last week started to continue into this week, but some of my library holds picked up significantly after that, as well as some of the holds that came in on my Kindle. Now I have my haul from my Christmas gift card to look forward to, and I’m so excited for that!

Outlining for the second draft of my sci-fi WIP has been pretty slow going, but I’d say that I’m making steady process. (The fact that I’ve had another light school week has certainly helped.) I left a whole bunch of comments during the initial edits I did on the first draft, and occasionally I’ll just find one that cracks me up.

Other than that, I drew a bit, caught up on WandaVision (OKAY EPISODE FOUR DEFINITELY PICKED UP), and watched The Hunt for the Wilderpeople with my family. The latter made me cry like a baby, but it was 100% worth it. Also, I’m learning “Quicksand” by David Bowie on the guitar šŸ„ŗ what a beautiful song

    1. Aww thank you! I don’t think I’ll review Ruinsong. (I was going to, but I have so many thoughts on I’m Thinking of Ending Things so I’ll review that instead). I loved the sapphic representation in Ruinsong and the cover art was SO pretty, but I didn’t connect with any of the characters, and the worldbuilding felt borderline nonexistent :/ cool magic system though
      Thanks so much! I’m gonna need it…
