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!

30 Day Challenge Day 10: A Classic that Makes Me Want to Read It Again

30 day reading challenge

Hey Bookworms! It’s day 10! Yay I got through 10 day with 20 more to go! Honestly these posts are getting harder, but they are keeping me busy. So let’s get started.

Day 10: Favorite Classic

The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde

The Importance of Being Earnest

Honestly this was my favorite ever required read! This book was laugh out loud humor. It was very slapstick and fun! I liked each character! It made me want to read more Oscar Wilde! Which I haven’t yet, but I plan to when I get the money! I also want to learn more about him. This is definitely the kind of play you pick up when you’re having a bad day. The main theme I love is: That people of any status or age are willing to make a fool of themselves for love. Not even the smartest people can avoid love. If you truly love someone you don’t mind being ridiculous for them just to prove it! What can i say I’m just a romantic at time. It also got turned into a movie! I will leave the trailer below, but I would adore seeing it in original play format! Maybe one day?

Well anywho Bookworms that is all I have to say for today! I hope I persuaded you to pick up this book by choice. You will enjoy it much more the second time if it is assigned. Happy reading!
