Week in READview:

On & Off the Blog:

Happy August!

I am in a very weird reading mood. The Darker the romance the better. My mood this year seems to switch from Fantasy/SciFi to Dark Romance, spicy reads. I am not complaining because at least I am reading but I feel like I don’t have a solid idea of what I want to read so I just keep bouncing back and forth.

I am making great progress with my courses, this week I will going into my 4th and final week of UI design. I have 4 courses in total each with about 4 weeks worth of classes. I am a little nervous since I really need to find a job soon but I am excited about what I have learned so far and might even jump into another class. I really do wish I had started sooner but I don’t think I was ready yet and right now I feel like I am were I need to be.

As much as I love that my son is working for a couple hours, the driving is making me crazy. From 11:30 to 3, I feel like I am in the car. It’s been very hard to get stuff done but I am hoping this week will be a little better since I have a more solid schedule of what I plan to do.

The weather has been fall like this week and I love it. I know that it will start getting hot again soon but for now I am enjoying the mid to upper 70s with a nice cool breeze and it’s even been low 60s at night.

I am hoping to fill up August with Posts because the best time of year for posting is coming up soon. The last 4 months are always my favorite for fun posts.

Read & Currently Reading:

Read Mexican Gothic with Berls and while it was ok, it wasn’t the best. I wanted to like it more but I just thought the last 4 chapters where really dumb. A Lady of Rooksgrave, I had to DNF. I hated the MC, and while the idea of a manor that is a supernatural brothel is fantastic, I just hated the Main Girl.

Desperate Measures, I will never look at Jafar the same way again *fans self*

What I grabbed:

What I watched:

Sort of watching Sons of Anarchy with my husband but started a new Anime this week called Ghost Hunt and I am loving it. It’s really short so I will probably finish it next week. I have also been watching a Let’s Play on Youtube with James Turner, he is doing a rags to riches with the new Sims Pack, it is hilarious and just so fun to watch.

  1. I can relate to your weird reading mood. I feel like I have switched from thrillers to romance, and now I’m kinda done with romance and I want to switch back to thrillers. I just can’t seem to keep myself happy lol. Congrats on your final week! Hope you do well and find a job soon! I know the struggle, so fingers crossed!

  2. That’s difficult when you don’t quite know what to read. I hope you can find some dark romances that fit your mood. That’s great your classes are going well and you’re learning new things. I think it makes sense to need to a bit of a break before you could start with the classes and hopefully you can find a good job soon :). The weather has been kinda fall like as well here, I don’t mind too much as at least it’s not super hot. I can’t stand the heat.

    Sorry to hear about the DNF, I DNF’d a book for the exact same reason this week as I couldn’t stand the main female character. It really makes it hard to enjoy a book when that happens. This Poison Heart looks good, I am looking forward to hearing your thoughts about that one.

    I hope you’ll have a great week!

  3. I’m glad reading is going well. I used to take my daughter to college and either I would stay in the car listening to audio and / or knitting, or I would run errands getting groceries, or whatever. It isn’t easy though. Now we live only 2 miles from campus but she is doing all online again this fall.

  4. Bummer that A Lady of Rooksgrave Manor didn’t work out for you! Esther is definitely a different kind of heroine, but I enjoyed her!

    And I’m totally jealous of your fall weather! The news just announced three more weeks of 100+ weather and it is nasty!

  5. Reading is reading, I have noticed my mood in books has changed a little bit this year. It happens. 🙂 Glad things are going well with your classes and that Ryan’s job is going well.

    Have a great week and happy reading!
