It’s time for another weekly update! Keep reading to find out the books I read this past week as well as what I plan on reading next! I also mention both films and television series that I have been watching. But first, let’s start with a quick life update!
Last weekend was a long weekend for us Canadians, therefore we had Monday off of work which was super nice! My mom, sister and I decided we wanted to do something together, but we didn’t really want to spend any money, so we took a drive down to Lake Ontario on the edge of the city and took the time to explore a little! It turned out to be a great day!
On Tuesday, Patty, Jesse, Joey & I met up with Kat as she is currently visiting Toronto! We went out for dinner at a place called Louis Cifer which is a pretty cool resturaunt that I head to any time I’m going to a concert at the Danforth Music Hall! Before dinner, we made a little stop at Dollarama to make sure Kat got her fill of Canadian snacks!
The rest of the week was pretty calm and relaxing. I didn’t do much other than go to work during the day, work on a freelance project at night and read. This week has been pretty gloomy weather-wise which made it easier to stay inside and be a little productive.
This weekend has been super jam packed though, but amazingly fun! My best friend is getting married and I went to her wedding shower this weekend! It was so nice to see everyone again! I also went to a convention today called Anime North which is an Anime specific convention that happens every year in Toronto! I have never been before and it was quite the experience! I managed to snag a bunch of Yuri!!! On Ice merchandise as seen in the above photo!
Now, that’s enough about my life! Let’s talk about the pop culture I consumed this week!
Recently Finished: A Court Of Wings & Ruin by Sarah J. Maas and Motor Crush Vol.1 by Brendan Fletcher, Cameron Stewart & Babs Tarr
So, I finally finished A Court Of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas! It wasn’t the best book in the series (that title still belongs to book #2) but it was still one hell of an entertaining read! Check out my review that I posted yesterday for more in depth thoughts and feelings! I also read all 5 single issues that will make up the upcoming first volume of Motor Crush by Brendan Fletcher, Cameron Stewart and Babs Tarr! Oh my god guys, it was amazing! I can’t wait to read more from this series and I promise you, it’s worth checking out! You can read my review for it here.
Currently reading: Sleeping Giants by Sylvain Neuvel & The Party by Robyn Harding
I have recently started reading Sleeping Giants by Sylvain Neuvel as it has been on my TBR for quite a while now! So far so good! I’m really enjoying how fast paced it is! I’ve also recently just started The Party by Robyn Harding! I haven’t read enough of it to tell you how I feel about it yet, but I am excited for this one!
Upcoming reads: Saints & Misfits by S.K. Ali & Maybe In Paris by Rebecca Christiansen
Saints and Misfits by S.K. Ali is one of my most anticipated reads for this year and I’m so excited that I was able to get an ARC of it! I hope to start reading this one soon! I was also able to get an ARC of Maybe In Paris by Rebecca Christiansen which I’m also really excited for!
Recently watched: N/A
Ugh. So I still haven’t watched any films recently guys…I’m so mad at myself for it, but I really just have no time! I did try to watch Pitch Black at my friend’s place last night, but I honestly had no idea what the hell was going on right from the beginning so I kind of tuned out. Hopefully I’ll be able to watch something soon!
Well, Logan was just released on DVD and Blu ray, so maybe I’ll be able to watch that one soon!
Currently finished watching: The 100 Season 4
I had stopped watching The 100 season 4 about 4 episodes ago, but I kept hearing so many people talk about the finale so I figured I should probably binge it. I did and I’m confused, but I don’t think I hate it as much as a lot of people did! I’m actually quite excited to see what happens next season!
Currently watching/binging: N/A
I was thinking of starting Voltron: Legendary Defender as I saw it literally everywhere at Anime North today! We’ll see if I have the time at all! I also still need to start American Gods…if only I had the time.
There you have it! My weekly update for this past week!
Thank you for reading!
