Currently Reading, Watching, Listening To, Trying (#11)

ezgif-1-f3fef490bdIt’s time for another update! As you will see, I haven’t had much time for…well…anything other than work for the past 2 weeks or so. I did manage to watch Stranger Things season 2 right when it was released, and did take a break this past Tuesday night to go see Thor: Ragnarok!

Top Ten Tuesday (#34): Top Ten Yummy Foods Mentioned In Books

                     top-ten-tuesday-halloween-edition

Happy Tuesday and TTT day! This week, we’re all going to leave each other’s posts feeling quite hungry, because this weeks prompt is all about food! Now, if you’re a foodie like me, you will have jumped right to your “read” list on Goodreads and made a top 10 list in no time! Books mention snacks that make me want to try them, or eat them again, all the time! So, I will usually remember which books mentioned which foods, and how badly I wanted to eat said foods, haha. Let’s dig in, shall we?

Top Ten Tuesday (#33): Ten Books With Fall/Autumn Covers/Themes

                     top-ten-tuesday-halloween-edition

And we’re back this Tuesday with another exciting prompt…Ten Books With Fall/Autumn Covers/Themes! Yes, I know, I love Autumn way too much. But I’m a strong believer that it’s better to fill your life with things that you like and love, than the opposite. Yes. Positivity! My spellchecker is saying that that is not a real world. Too bad. Anyway, this prompt was harder for me to complete than I’d first imagined. When I first saw the prompt over on The Broke and the Bookish I just kind of smiled to myself, cracked my knuckles, and started a search that I thought would be very short and very yielding. I was so very wrong, and in the end, ended up listing a bunch of books that I have not read yet! Some of them are not published yet, sure, but the rest….What’s my excuse? The upside of this adventure, is that I came across some books that I’d never seen or heard of before! But anyway, on to my top ten list!

ezgif-1-f3fef490bdI haven’t made one of these posts since August 16th, so I thought that it was due time to make another! Of course, I can’t bring myself to change the intro GIF for these posts, because it’s so fitting, and it’s BTS, and look at how cute they were with their light/pastel hair colours! My cuties. I still remember when they started out…and now I may have to re-visit my very out of date kpop collection. Haha. But anyway, here’s what I’ve been reading, watching, listening to, and trying!

ezgif-1-f3fef490bdIt’s update time! First of all, I wanted to apologize for the lack of reviews (and post in general) over the last few weeks. My boyfriend had 2 weeks off (and he doesn’t like to relax and sit around too much, but loves spending time with me…so you can put 2 and 2 together). I was also preparing for, and attending, multiple interviews, which also took up some of my time. And what about weekends, you ask? Those are just as insane, if not more so! But, there has been some progress, so please read on if you enjoy these posts!
