Wow, I sat down to write this post and my mind went completely blank.
Between the heat & humidity, allergies and the fucking incessant noise coming from all these damn cicadas, my mental capacity is at an all-time low.
On a happier note, it’s a long weekend and I’ve been actively working on my WIP. I won’t go into too much detail since I’ll be doing a Writing Update at the end of the month – but I’ve really fallen back in love with my SF WIP. It’s not nearly as terrible as I think it is, and it’s actually kind of what I want to read right now.
But I’m constantly exhausted, so progress is slow going, but it is progress.
I’ve started a new show – it’s interesting. And I’m reading 2 different books right now.
So, let’s get into that.
For the Wolf – Hannah Whitten
I’m only 20% into this – I’d hoped to be further, but oh well. And all I want to do is stay up all night and read it…but I’m exhausted. It’s really annoying me, because I was invested and now I have to stop reading to sleep. It’s not fair. I’m really loving this so far, and I’ve heard really good things, so I’m excited.
The Hunter and The Mage – Kaitlyn Davis
I’m listening to the audio for this, and I’m roughly halfway through. It’s taking me awhile to get into this book. I was really, really looking forward to it, but I’m lowkey struggling to remember things that happened in book 1, and I’m really not a fan of Malek. I do not trust him and find him to be annoying and my dislike for his character is making it hard to care about what happens. That sounds terrible, but he occupies so much of this book and I just “meh”. I’m still going to finish it – I need my boy Rafe to be happy.
The Mosquito Coast (AppleTV)
This isn’t necessarily something I would have picked up on my own, but my dad was watching it and now I’m sucked in.
An idealistic inventor, disgusted with the corruption of the civilized world, uproots his family to Latin America and a dangerous quest through Mexico to flee the U.S. government and find safety.
We’re 5 episodes in, and things are still being uncovered/explained, but you sort of don’t know who the bad guy is. It’s entertaining, and lowkey could be a dark comedy – at least, sometimes it comes across that way.
Violet Evergarden (Netflix)
I read/heard somewhere that a season 2 is coming, so it’s time for a rewatch…again. I still really love this show – though I refuse to believe that Violet is only (supposedly 14 years old). Legit that’s my only gripe. I also think it’s high time I watch the 2 VG specials that are on Netflix, since I haven’t done that yet.
And that’s it! Let me know in the comments what you’re currently reading and watching – is there something that should be on my radar?
