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