Views #3 – A Weekend Of Recovery & Reading!

views

This week was pretty uneventful, but I got a lot of reading done! Check out this mini wrap up of life, books, movies, television and music from this past week!


Life

This week was pretty calm compared to past weeks. Nothing really eventful happened during the week until the end of it.

On Friday, I had a wisdom tooth removed. I was supposed to get it out on February 10th, but I decided it was just too painful to wait that long and moved it up a week. Honestly, it hurt more before the removal than after. I think that tooth just really needed to come out.

Other than that, it was a weekend of reading while I recovered from the wisdom tooth removal (which really wasn’t much of a recovery considering it healed so damn quickly). I did start to get a bit of a sore throat though and my voice is now basically gone. I did manage to read quite a bit as I lay in my bed this weekend as you will see below!


Books I Finished This Week

thegirls2

The Girls by Emma Cline (Review Coming Soon!)

Quick Thoughts: Cool idea…not executed very well.


kurosagi1

The Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service by Eiji Otsuka (Review Coming Soon!)

Quick Thoughts: My choice to judge a book by its cover was a wise one in this case. I absolutely loved how strange and dark this first volume was!


dreaminsun1

Dreamin’ Sun Vol.1 by Ichigo Takano (Review Coming Soon!)

Quick Thoughts: Super cute intro to a series + I absolutely LOVED Orange by the same author!


dreaminsun2
Dreamin’ Sun Vol.2 by Ichigo Takano (Review Coming Soon!)

Quick Thoughts: Picked up the second volume right after reading the first! Now, should I hit purchase on volumes 3-5?


emergencycontact

Emergency Contact by Mary H.K. Choi (Review Coming Soon!)

Quick Thoughts: Super cute contemporary young adult novel! Can’t wait for you all to read this one!


Books I Am Currently Reading

elenamendoza

The Apocalypse Of Elena Mendoza by Shaun David Hutchinson

Quick Thoughts: I will drop everything for a Shaun David Hutchinson novel…which is exactly what I did when this showed up in my mailbox!


callmebyyourname
Call Me By Your Name by André Aciman

Quick Thoughts: I’m about half way through and so far it’s reminding me a lot of A Single Man by Christopher Isherwood & Holding The Man by Timothy Conigrave.


Books I Want To Read Next!

asyouwish

As You Wish by Chelsea Sedotti

Quick Thoughts: I requested this one from NetGalley a while ago and I promise to pick it up soon!


milesawayfromyou

Miles Away From You by A.B. Rutledge

Quick Thoughts: This is another one that I requested via NetGalley that I hope to get to very soon!


Movies I’ve Recently Watched

N/A – I haven’t watched any films lately…but I am working on reading Call Me By Your Name so I can watch it ASAP! Hopefully I’ll have a novel/film comparison & review ready for you soon!


Televisions Shows I’m Trying to Keep Up With

I’m all caught up on Riverdale and I have some thoughts. 1) Who is this Dave Franco look alike they found to play Betty’s brother. 2) Did they really think naming a Canadian mobster Papa Poutine was a good idea? I cringed way too hard and let me tell you, no one is afraid of a mobster named fucking PAPA POUTINE.

I’m an episode behind on This Is Us because I really had no idea there was a new episode after the Super Bowl. Hopefully I can catch up on that one soon, I hear it’s a real tear jerker.

I also started watching Altered Carbon last night and while I was too tired to make it through a full episode, it did capture my attention and I’m exited to continue watching it!


Music I’m Currently Loving

 Taemin – Thirsty

Quick Thoughts: You guessed it. This makes me extremely thirsty.


Thank you for reading!

  1. I’m glad your tooth is healing quickly! Tooth pain is awful! I am excited to see your review of The Girls. Your quick thoughts pretty much some up exactly how I felt about it.

    I need to catch up on Riverdale and I did not watch This Is Us last night. I’m not sure I’m emotionally prepared!!

    1. Thank you! Tooth pain can definitely be pretty awful! My mini review for The Girls should be going up tomorrow! 😀

      Right!? I feel like you definitely need to be emotionally prepared for that show on a weekly basis! :\

  2. You definitely have to stick to Altered Carbon! I, too, almost fell asleep in both the first and second episode, but in my defense, I was bordering hypothermia when I binged it haha
    Glad it feels better for you now that the wisdom tooth is out. They suck so much, they’re a massive evolutionary oversight if you ask me!

      Definitely agree with your wisdom tooth comment bahaha! 😛
