Week In Review
October 8 – 14
It’s been a few weeks since I’ve done one of these! Life has been busy but hopefully things are settling down and I can catch up on some sleep and some reading time, at last. I also have pretty much all of my TV shows to catch up on (Supernatural; The Walking Dead; The Good Place) so I want to make time for that too.
One thing I have been watching and enjoying immensely is On Cinema at the Cinema with Tim Heidecker and Gregg Turkington (I’m a Timhead, but my husband is a Gregghead, so there has been a lot of tension in the home lately). It’s so funny, and I love the universe Tim and Gregg have created with this show: there is the TV show, the live specials, the spin-off TV show, the band…it’s a lot, but if it’s your kind of humour, it’s so rewarding to become fully immersed in that world.
The short episodes of On Cinema (and Decker) have made them perfect for watching whenever my husband and I have had spare time over the last couple of weeks to just sit and relax.
I bought a few books for my Kobo:
The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein Kiersten White;
The Wedding Date, Jasmine Guillory; and
Blackbirds, Chuck Wendig.
I also pre-ordered the new Tana French book, The Witch Elm, and was so excited when release day arrived and it showed up on my Kobo! I love her books, and this is a stand-alone. It isn’t part of her Dublin Murder Squad series, so I’m intrigued.
I’ve only finished two books in the last couple of weeks.
First, I read Victoria Schwab’s Vengeful (sequel to one of my favourite books, Vicious), and it was so good that I couldn’t get into anything else I tried to read after that. It was a true book hangover. And I’m really struggling to write my review, because I have so much I want to say and it gave me a LOT of feelings, but I’m not sure if I can accurately capture that in words!
This weekend I finished Hank Green’s An Absolutely Remarkable Thing, which was interesting. I have to think on it for a bit before I review it.
I’m about a quarter of the way into The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein, and I’m planning to start reading The Witch Elm today.
Time for coffee, books, and TV shows. Happy Sunday!
