I’ve completed my Shelf Love challenge reading goal! Having 4 days to do whatever I wanted meant lots of audiobook time, as well as staying up late to read. Well, I at least attempted to stay up late reading, but my eyes kept saying no. Apparently, I need the rest.
I didn’t do much reading again this week. Instead, I did things to better winterize the house and did a lot of organizing and cleaning when I wasn’t working. I only have Thanksgiving day off from work this week, and it’s the first job I’ve had that I didn’t have Friday off as well. Hopefully, I’ll be able to spend the weekend mostly reading.
Despite having Veteran’s Day off and the house to myself for most of the week, I didn’t do much reading. I don’t know if it’s a reading slump or what, but I’m getting concerned that I’m not going to make my annual reading goal for the first time since I started setting one.
Now that I’m working full-time again, I feel like the only time I have to read is when I listen to audiobooks during my commute and a little bit before bed. It doesn’t help that I’m spending the majority of my weekend unpacking and finding a place for everything in the house. I emptied a lot of boxes this weekend, but it feels like I hardly made a dent.
#RIP is now over, and while I didn’t finish any more books or make anymore Bingos, the Boyfriend and I watched “The Shining” on Friday and “Crimson Peak” on Saturday after we finished “Brand New Cherry Flavor.” I started a new job on Monday, and while I could read during my 30-minute lunch, I get along really well with my coworkers and have spent my lunchtime chatting with them while I eat instead.
I finally got a Bingo for RIP, and not only did I get one, but I got two, thanks to Meddling Kids and The Sweet Far Thing. I’m reading the group book now, The Sundial, but I don’t know if I’ll be able to finish it before the 31st. In other book-related news, I’m only 2 books from meeting my Shelf Love challenge goal.
The Boyfriend and I are one story away from finishing Uncle Montague’s Tales of Terror. We’ve watched all of “Midnight Mass” and are now a couple of episodes into “Brand New Cherry Flavor,” which is extremely weird.
It’s October! The Boyfriend and I are continuing to read Uncle Montague’s Tales of Terror together. We’ve also watched all of “The Haunting of Bly Manor” and have started watching “Midnight Mass.” On Saturday, I continued watching “Supernatural”, and it’s gotten good again, so far. I still plan to at least finish season 13, and then I’ll decide if I want to continue.
I can’t believe it’s almost October already! I’ve finished 7 books for RIP, started two others (one physical, one audio), and I started listening to my “October Country” playlist. I still haven’t decided which book to read for “Peril of the Real” so I can get my first Bingo, but both of my current reads are over 700 pages, so I’ve got some time to figure it out.
