Hey everyone! It’s time for another weekly recap post of all things happening on and off the blog. This week I’ll be linking to the Sunday Post, which is hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer and to Stacking the Shelves, which is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews.
This week was kind of an up and down week on the blog. Thanks to the library not allowing me to renew two books that other people had placed holds on, I had to switch up what I had originally planned to read so Caraval got pushed back to this week and I read Words in Deep Blue and When Dimple Met Rishi instead. I guess I could have just turned the library books back in unread, but I had waited so long to get my hands on them in the first place, I just figured it was best to get through them and get them off my TBR. Caraval will happen this week though. I’m determined, lol!
Girl in Snow, another book I planned to read this past week unfortunately ended up being a DNF. I didn’t get far enough into it to do a full review on the blog, but it just wasn’t for me. It was supposed to be a murder mystery, but the pacing was just so slow that I kept losing interest. I also didn’t particularly like either of the main characters, which didn’t help matters.
Off the blog, it was a fairly quiet week. Work has been hectic because we’re currently short-staffed, but I did finally put in for a week of vacation. I can’t decide if I’m going to travel or just relax and make it a stay-cation, but either way, I’m excited to have some time off before my son goes back to work. I also started a new low-carb diet this week, which has been pure hell, because carbs are my life. Hopefully I’ll adjust to the diet soon because right now I’m the epitome of the word ‘Hangry.’ I also spent way too much time online looking for easy-to-make low-carb recipes. So many of the recipes I see are too complicate or too time-consuming to make, or they’re just so overloaded with ingredients that I don’t even want to think about what my grocery bill would look like if I bought all of them. A little frustrating to say the least.
Oh well, that’s pretty much it for me. Have a great week, everyone!
