Weekly Update: February 15-21, 2021

Happy Sunday, bibliophiles! I hope this week has treated you well, and for everyone in the Texas area, stay safe out there. Lots of love. 💗

Reading-wise, I’d say it’s been a bit of a hit-or-miss week. A lot of what I read fell in the 3-star range, but I did find another 5-star read! I still have some of my library haul from this week left to read, as well as some Hellboy books my dad lent to me (thank you!) and 3 eARCs I got approved for. So expect a lot of reviews in the next few weeks!

Writing-wise, I’m nearly done with my sci-fi outline, but I switched gears later in the week because my mom found this writing contest that I’m interested in. I’m now shifting over to outlining/writing a short story, and I’m really excited to get into it!

Other than that, I just drew a bit, rewatched more Fargo, got caught up on WandaVision (OH MY GOD THAT LAST EPISODE), volunteered at the library, and drank a whole lot of hot chocolate.

Also, I thought that the new Julien Baker album came out today, but no, not until the 26th…[cries]

WHAT I READ THIS WEEK:

The City We Became (Great Cities, #1) – N.K. Jemisin (⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️)

      1. You’re welcome! 🥺💖 As a slow reader, I had always wished I could read faster. But hey, slow or fast we are reading some great books and that’s all that matters! 🤩😍

  2. I reallyyyy need to get on with The Song of Achilles! I’m in a study group atm and we’re doing Hamlet – that made me realise my knowledge of Greek Mythology has gone rather rusty, so I have restarted Mythology (by Edith Hamilton) haha! I’m down the mythology rabbit hole so hoping I pick this up ASAP 🙂
