This is going to be a short post because, Allergies. Are. Kicking. My. Butt.
This past weekend I’ve existed with a headache and now it’s morphed into a sore throat. I sound like a toad. #winningatlife
I’m dying and I’m exhausted.
I don’t know why my allergies are acting up so badly this year, but I’m ready for everything to stop blooming. I want to be able to breathe freely, go about my day without a headache and swallow without it feeling like fire is being poured down my throat? Is that too much to ask?
I was going to have a book review posted for today, but instead you’re going to get a new Reading & Watching update since I haven’t done one for about two months. And this way I can rave about my favorite show that I’m re-watching…and talk about the 3 books I’m reading…okay 1 I haven’t actually started yet, but it’s in my purse, so it counts!
Let’s start with the books:
Cardinal Machines by Tracy Eire – PDF via Kindle
The author of this book reached out to me and asked me to read it, and I said sure. Since I’ll have a full review posted when I finish it, I won’t go into too much detail. I’m enjoying it, the writing is pretty solid, there are just some little things I have issues with. I wasn’t sure what to expect going into this book, and I’ve been pleasantly surprised.
**All my thoughts and opinions are my own honest ones.
The Blood Spell – C.J. Redwine – Audiobook via Audible
I’m probably about half way through this book and I’m loving it, but that’s not surprising. I love this series so much, and each book has been so good, and this just might beat out The Wish Granter as my favorite in the series, but I’ll let you know once I finish it.
Eyes on Me – Rachel Harris – Paperback
Okay, so I haven’t actually started this yet, which I’m mad at myself for. It’s been in my purse for about two weeks, and every time I go to pick it up to start it, I realize that I have another book (due to release dates) that I have to read first. Soon! Very soon, I’m going to start it!
Now for the shows:
Vikings – Amazon Prime
I’ve been watching this with my family, and we just reached the midseason finale of season 5, and the second part isn’t available to watch on Prime yet. *screaming*
I can’t believe I waited so long to watch this show. It’s gotten a little tedious after a certain character death, but overall, it’s been consistently good. The acting is amazing, and the settings are gorgeous. The plot/story overall is really good. Definitely a show people should check out.
Farscape – Amazon Prime
THIS SHOW. It’s the best. It’s probably my third – maybe fourth time re-watching and it’s still amazing. I was in the middle of a Doctor Who re-watch when I found out that Farscape was on Prime, and I had to stop everything to watch it. The plot, the characters, the story, the settings – it’s everything I want in a sci-fi show, and it’s so good. The main character Crichton, he’s so flawed, so human, but he’s also so good and so human. The chemistry between him and Aeryn is perfect, and the other characters are all so unique and interesting. I mean, I could go on and on about this show until I’m blue in the face, but I won’t because I just took allergy meds, and I think they’re going to start kicking in soon, and I need to have this post written before then.
If you’re looking for an amazing sci-fi show, set on a living spaceship, with a fun cast, brilliant one-liners, romance, friendship, and unique planets, then you definitely want to check it out.
Doctor Who – Amazon Prime
This is back burner for now, but I’m mid-season 702 (season 7, second part) with Eleven and Clara. I’ll dive back in once I’m (sadly) done Farscape.
Game of Thrones – Live TV
Like most of the world, I’m back in to the world of Game of Thrones, and I wish I could just binge it. At the pace it’s going, it’s almost tedious to wait. I’m enjoying it so far, but we will see. I don’t know what the outcome will be. I’m wary.
Now, I’m going to go fall into bed, and sleep, and hopefully tomorrow I won’t wake up in a worse state than I am today – which is, sore throat, can’t talk, every time I swallow I feel like throwing up, and every time I swallow my inner ears itch, and now, my nose is getting stuffy and I’m blowing it constantly.
Finger’s crossed it’s just allergies, but we’ll see.
