This was a nice, short week for me. We had some bad weather in Central PA on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, so the library was closed on Tuesday and had a delayed opening on Wednesday. I had a lot of work to do, though, so I ended up having a lot less time to do it in. That was a little rough, but it was still a short work week, so I’m not complaining. Now I have a three-day weekend for Presidents’ Day, so I’m looking forward to doing ALL THE READING.
I didn’t get much pleasure reading done last week. I’m taking a Lit class this quarter, so most of my reading during the week is for class. And not that I don’t enjoy what I’m reading for class (writing from 1865 to the present day), but it’s not stuff I’m choosing to read. I finished Everything’s Eventual last Sunday (review here), and I finally finished The Luminaries yesterday (I started it on January 20). The Luminaries is going to be hard to review, but I loved it.
Library books I have checked out:
Books I’ve purchased over the last couple weeks:
I’m not sure when I’m going to get to the books I’ve purchased, but very soon I hope. I need to read the library books first.
- Nemesis Games (The Expanse #5), James S.A. Corey
- Pandaemonium, Christopher Brookmyre (reading with sj)
I am really enjoying The Expanse book series. Eric and I started watching the TV show before I knew it was based on a series of books. Of course I had to start reading the books as soon as I found out they existed. The TV show is done really well; the books are a little different, but not in a way that makes them better than the show. I’m really enjoying both the show and the book series.
I’m actually writing this post on Saturday afternoon, so I haven’t started reading Pandaemonium yet–I’ll be starting it Saturday evening.
- Black Mirror (will be caught up by the time you read this)
- Bob’s Burgers (beginning of season 8)
- Dear White People (middle of season 2)
- Gotham (as it airs)
- The Magicians (as it airs)
- Supernatural (as it airs)
- This is Us (as it airs)
- The Walking Dead (as it airs)
- The Wire (beginning of season 4)
Hope everyone has a good week!
