Week In Review

July 1 – 6

What a week! I only worked two days (Thursday and Friday) but it still somehow felt like a long and busy week. I’ve got even more changes at work beginning on Monday, but I think I’m looking forward to it.

Wednesday was Canada Day and it was HOT and HUMID, two of my least favourite things. Honestly, I must be one of the only people in Canada looking forward to the colder weather. Our summers here in Ottawa can get so humid, and I don’t handle that well. I overheat easily, the humidity makes it difficult to breathe, and I don’t have central air conditioning. It makes me very cranky. I’m looking forward to cooler temperatures already!

On Thursday I went to see a live show of Welcome to Night Vale and it was amazing! It’s one of my favourite shows/podcasts. We were a small but enthusiastic audience (my sister saw the Toronto show the night before and said they were in a big theatre, and the show was sold out!) and there was a lot of love for Cecil and Carlos. The show was  funny, a little spooky and creepy, and featured some good live music. It was pretty perfect. If they ever come back to Ottawa, I will totally be there!

It was a quiet book week. I picked up The Mirk and Midnight Hour by Jane Nickerson from the library.

I finished reading Dollhouse by Anya Allyn and Landline by Rainbow Rowell.

Currently I’m still reading Sinner by Maggie Stiefvater. I am enjoying it, but for some reason I am reading it really slowly. Once I’m done, I think my next read will be Dissonance by Erica O’Rourke. Parallel worlds!

On the blog, I posted reviews of  The Vanishing Season by Jodi Lynn Anderson and Half Bad by Sally Green. I also shared my Top Ten Tuesday post on the top ten classics I’d like to read, as well as my thoughts on why I love video games.

Coming up on the blog are reviews of The Chapel Wars by Lindsey Leavitt and Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo!

I’m off to try and finish reading Sinner! Happy Sunday!
