I am linking up to the Sunday Post hosted by Kim of Caffeinated Book Reviewer, where participants recap our week, talk about what we are reading, share any new books that have come our way, and whatever else we want to talk about. I am also linking The Sunday Salon hosted by Deb Nance of Readerbuzz where participants discuss what they are reading and other bookish topics.
What I Am Reading: My reading has been a bit slow so far this month. Or rather, less time for reading just for myself. Mouse and I recently read Ramona and Her Mother by Beverly Cleary and are now reading Katherine Paterson's Bridge to Terabithia. When I do fit in reading time for myself, I am still making my way through the short story collection, Together, Apart. I am enjoying it so far. I also started Leads and Lynxes by Rebecca Chastain, which I plan to finish this weekend.
What I Am Watching: I finished watching the final season of S.H.I.E.L.D. this past week, and started re-watching the first season of The 100. I had seen the first two seasons before, but never got around to watching the third when it came out--and now there's seven seasons! I thought it a good idea to just start from the beginning again.
As my family and I work our way through Buffy the Vampire Slayer again, we have also started re-watching Angel alongside it, interspersing episodes to follow their timeline. I had forgotten how much I enjoyed these shows.
I have also been watching holiday rom-com movies on Netflix.
Off the Blog: This past week was relatively uneventful. Just the usual for us: work, school, Zoom dance classes. My husband had to work Veteran's Day, but Mouse and I had the day off. I did not even get close to half the things done that I had hoped to, but Mouse and I enjoyed having some free time together.
We have been enjoying evening walks after Anjin and I get off work. The time change the end of October means we go after the dark so it's fairly quiet out. It's starting to get chilly too. A couple of the neighbors have already put up their Christmas decorations. I am looking forward to seeing more go up in the coming weeks.
Not much in the news has changed either this week--the number of COVID-19 cases continues to rise around the world and the U.S. President continues to deny he's lost the election as well as many of his supporters despite evidence to the contrary.
What I Am Grateful For: Fuzzy socks and cozy blankets; Starbucks peppermint hot chocolate and cranberry orange scones; reading with my daughter; and all of you.
Nina didn't want to climb into her new box.
Tell me what you have been up to! What are you reading, listening to and watching? How was your week?
Thank you for helping me decide what book from my TBR collection I should read next:
My TBR List is a meme hosted by the awesome Michelle at Because Reading. It’s a fun way to choose a book from your TBR pile to read. The 1st Saturday of every month, I will list 3 books I am considering reading and take a poll as to which you think I should read. I will read the winner that month, and my review will follow (unfortunately, not likely in the same month, but eventually--that's all I can promise).
Thank you to everyone who voted in this month's poll! How Rory Thorne Destroyed the Multiverse by K. Eason won with eight votes over Ignite the Stars by Maura Milan (5 votes) and Chilling Effect by Valerie Valdes (3 votes). I am really looking forward to starting Eason's duology!
