Hey there, bloggers! I’ve been floating around the interwebs and happened to check the date of my last blog entry, which was- get this- February 6th. FEBRUARY 6TH??!? Where in the HELL have I been for two weeks???? Oh yes. College. Cursed, cursed college.
So, yeah. I didn’t forget that I had a blog or anything (that only happened once, I swear. No it didn’t. Or did it?) Basically, I had a mad two weeks of assignments to which I had to dedicate all of my precious time. Time I usually dedicate to blogging/lazing around. Well, I wasn’t completely honest. I had one week full of assignments and one week of recuperation, it was THAT bad. I had three essays due and a midterm exam. ALL WITHIN ONE DAY OF EACH OTHER. Am I smart? Did I start these well in advance and have them done well in advance?
Time management in college is hard enough without my chronic procrastination. It’s safe to say that I got zero sleep last week, but through the power of sheer determination, I got everything done. Thank Christ.
This post is basically just a reminder that I haven’t disappeared, not that anyone particularly cares. But I will definitely start blogging again regularly from Monday, with a Movie Monday post I’m super excited about!
And just so this post isn’t completely pointless, I’ll do a quick currently-reading list below (I am a book blogger, after all). I’m reading three books- yes three- not because I’m a super advanced reader, but because I checked out a bunch of library books at the same time and I’m running out of time to return them 😀 😀
Lolita- Vladimir Nabokov
This is a novel based around a middle-aged Literature professor who becomes infatuated with a young girl. I think most people know this story, or the film based on it, but it’s one of those books that has been on my to-read list for a while. What can I say so far? I absolutely hate it. I’ll have it done soon, so maybe my mind will change. I’ll have a review up, and I think it’s the controversial topic that is really turning me against it.
The Nightingale- Kristin Hannah
This is a historical novel set in France during WW2, and it centers around two sisters who struggle to come to terms with the war. I have mixed feelings about this book, but it has stellar reviews and I feel like it’s picking up slowly. Hopefully my mind changes about it.
Queen of Shadows- Sarah J. Maas
The fourth novel in the Throne of Glass series, we follow Caelaena’s journey into reclaiming her past. I don’t know why I keep reading this series, because in every review I complain about how much I miss the premise of the first book. But they’re fun to read so I will probably keep going with them. And I’ve literally only read three pages, so I haven’t got much to go on, but I love Maas’s writing so I’m excited.
And that’s it for this mini rant/update/currently reading post! Thanks for reading, and I’ll be back in full swing on Monday. If you’re reading/have read any of the books above and want to let me know what you think about them (no spoilers!) let me know below. Bye for now 🙂
