Views #4: Go For Gold Canada!

views

So, I missed posting a Views post last week and for that I apologize! Life hasn’t really been all that hectic so I can’t use that as an excuse. In all honesty, I’ve been a little distracted lately…keep reading to find out why!


Life

Many things have been taking over my life lately, but the biggest thing is probably the fact that I’m leaving for a vacation on the other side of the planet in about 2 weeks. I keep stressing about making sure that I have everything ready and it really does keep me up at night. I’m also a nervous flyer and thinking about an almost 14 hour plane ride is giving me some anxiety. Speaking of vacations, can you believe it has already been a year since I was in Tokyo?! I can’t, that’s for sure.

In other news, the Olympics have been happening. To be more specific, the winter Olympics are happening…a.k.a. Canada’s time to shine! We’ve been doing amazing this season and if I’m correct, I think we’ve already surpassed our medal count from 4 years ago! I’ve been really religious about watching the figure skating events & omg Tessa & Scott though. I can’t.

I also finally got some new prescription glasses and sun glasses…or so I thought. I went to go pick up my new glasses the other day and they ordered the wrong frames + the sunglasses weren’t ready yet. Overall, it was a slight waste of time and I’m still waiting for the updated pair to come. Please please please let them both just get here before I leave.


Books I Have Recently Finished

Call Me By Your Name by André Aciman

Quick Thoughts: Very reminiscent of A Single Man by Christopher Isherwood or Holding The Man by Timothy Conigrave. I can’t wait to finally watch the film!

Review Coming Soon!

Dear Martin by Nic Stone
Quick Thoughts: Wow. Super powerful. A real tear-jerker. This book is short, yet packs a powerful punch.

Review Coming Soon!

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! It was perfect & I loved it.

My Review


dreaminsun3
Dreamin’ Sun Vol.3 by Ichigo Takano

Quick Thoughts: I loved this volume and I have picked a ship…however, this volume kind of killed that ship. Hopefully that changes though…I’m really praying here.

Review Coming Soon!

Geekerella by Ashley Postuns

Quick Thoughts: A cute and modern take on the Cinderella fairy tale. I really enjoyed this one! A great book to take my mind off of the past few stressful days.

Review Coming Soon!

Letters To The Lost by Brigid Kemmerer 

Quick Thoughts: This is one of those books that I stayed up all night reading. If you know me, you know that I have a hard time reading big chunks of a book at a time as I find it hard to pay attention, but this one got me. I read a full 250 pages last night to finish this one and I haven’t done that in a long time.

Review Coming Soon!

Review Coming Soon!

Gathering Darkness (Falling Kingdoms #3) by Morgan Rhodes

Quick Thoughts: It’s been a while since I read the first two books in this series, but I made a promise to Jesse that I would finish this series ASAP. What better time than now?!

Review Coming Soon!


Books I Want To Read Next!

The Dangerous Art Of Blending In by Angelo Surmelis

Quick Thoughts: I’ve been meaning to pick this one up and I’ve seen some pretty amazing reviews, so I think I’ll be reading it really soon!


Movies I’ve Recently Watched

N/A – Unfortunately, I haven’t watched a single movie in such a long while. I’m not sure why. Too many other things on the go I guess! I really hope to see Black Panther this weekend though!


Televisions Shows I Have Binged / I’m Trying to Keep Up With

As we all know, I’m forever behind on Riverdale and This Is Us. Right when I think I’m caught up, somehow I’ve missed another 2 episodes. Oh life.

In other news, I did binge the entire season of Everything Sucks! on Netflix and I thought it was pretty cute. It’s like Freaks & Geeks meets Stranger Things…but no monsters.

I also kind of stopped watching Altered Carbon. As I mentioned, I’ve been religiously watching the Olympics so I’ve kind of been neglecting a lot of shows recently! Pray that I can catch up soon!


Music I’m Currently Loving

Taemin – Stone Heart (이태민)

Quick Thoughts: There isn’t an official music video for this one, but I absolutely love this song.

 


Thank you for reading!

  1. The Winter Olympics have me hooked. I always get an adrenaline kick when I watch Winter sports! It’s addictive and exhilarating and makes me wish I wasn’t so clumsy haha. I watched the replays of the Free Dance this afternoon and it was incredible. Tessa and Scott definitely deserved that gold!! I don’t know what I’ll do when the Olympics end though haha.

    1. Ah! I probably won’t finish it until I get back from our trip, but I can’t wait to share my thoughts! So far so good!
