Life Update and Weekly Reads

Hey Bookworms! Miss me??? I know I’ve been MIA, but I’m still adjusting to the working world… Honestly my days off aren’t used for much more other than sleep and maybe a trip to the grocery store. I’m hoping I’ll have more energy this week though because my schedule got changed to 8-5 pm Tuesday-Saturday, but long story short I get more sleep and I don’t have to wake up at 3 am to get ready for work. I can’t tell you where I’m working, but it is a call center job and most days besides the cranky callers I love helping people.

As for other stuff although having a job is a good thing it may mean longer to save for my own place because I will have to pay for medical insurance now… Which also means adding to how long it takes for Grad School. Every day is still a bit of a struggle for me but I’m trying to take it day by day and week by week and trying to see some bright spots.

Like I’ve made a new friend who lives close to me and I love that she’s bookish! I can pile books on her bit by bit.

But anywho lets get on to the books. Since I probably won’t get to do a Friday Reads with my schedule the way it is for a few weeks. I decided to do a Weekly Reads, so I can still share with you all what I’m trying to read this week. So let’s get started!

Weekly Reads

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany, Jack Thorne

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

This is slow reading for me because my post office held it hostage for 2 days, so I’m reading it in between resting, and I plan to read it on my lunch hour too. No spoilers please because I’m only on page 80ish.

A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray

A Thousand Pieces of You

This will be my audiobook listen for the bus for the first half of the week. I’m enjoying the concept so far, but very few books have left a mark on me this year with my mood, so we’ll see most books have earned a 3.5 (aka a 4 stars on Goodreads from me) I am glad I am reading it after the hype though

Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge

Crimson Bound

This will be my other audiobook. I do have high hopes for it since Cruel Beauty was my favorite of last year. Hey I can hope!

Well that’s all for now Bookworms! It is time for me to head to bed although I am a little nervous for tomorrow since it’s our first day without our wonderful mentors. I am just taking this week day by day and doing my best to help each person. Anywho have you read any of these books? What were your thoughts? Any tips for how to blog around working? Let me know in the comments down below. I need all the help I can get please! Happy Reading!

WWW Wednesday: The Books That Have Kept Me Company in my Slumpy Mood…

WWW Wednesday

Hey bookworms! I know this is a late-ish post, but I just finished an assignment a bit ago and felt I could use some fun. I also know I haven’t done a wrap-up in forever, so this will let you all know what I have actually finished reading. So what is WWW Wednesday? It is a weekly feature hosted by Taking on a World of Words in which we answer three questions:

1. What Have You Recently Finished Reading?

2. What are You Currently Reading?

3. What Do You Plan on Reading Next?

Recently Finished

Faking It by Cora Carmack

Faking It

This is the only book I have finished this week, I have finished 3 other audiobooks in the last week, but I didn’t want to stretch. I thought it was an okay story and I might have liked it more with different narrators, but it was just too quick of an attraction for me! So this was a 3.4 out of 5 stars for me because I did appreciate the message near the ending.

Currently Reading

1. Wolfsbane by Andrea Cremer

Wolfsbane

This is my audiobook reread of the week and I am really enjoying the revisit of my reread. I think I am enjoying it more this second time!

2. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by JK Rowling

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

I’ve been reading this between assignments to give my brain a break. I have been highlighting and loving the small things I find in this reread.

3. This One Summer by Mariko Tamaki, Jillian Tamaki (Illustrator)

This One Summer

I noticed this was on Scribd, so I thought I would read this tonight because it’s a light read and I’ve wanted to read it forever, so I jumped on it!

What’s Next?

1. The Wolf Wilder by Katherine Rundell

The Wolf Wilder

I had to put this one down for a bit but I want to get back to it because I really want it to have a happy ending and review it for December!

2. Alias Hook by Lisa Jensen

Alias Hook

I am on my last renewal for this one, so I really want to try and finish it before Tuesday wish me luck!

3. Tease by Sophie Jordan

Tease

Honestly I don’t care for the narrator, but I want to finish the series and I don’t have much time to read print lately.. I am hoping the read is worth it.

4. A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray

A Great and Terrible Beauty

This is the credit I used for November so I will try to get to it by the end of the weak! I am excited to start something by this author and maybe it will push me into reading The Diviners!

Well bookworms that is it for tonight and I finished it while it’s still Wednesday. Have you read any of these? What were your feelings or favorites? Link me your WWW Wednesday and let me know in the comments! Happy reading and to my US readers have a fun and happy Thanksgiving!
