Weekly Reading Plans: January 17th

One of the biggest goals I have this year is to finally tackle the huge list of books I’ve accumulated over the past year. Especially the books were given to me in exchange for review. I haven’t intended to go so long without reading them. I am just really bad with time management. Hopefully, this year will help me get better with that.

Note: I realize I plan to read a lot of books every week. I’m a mood reader and I account for that by adding extras so if I’m stuck I can move on to another book. I do not think that I will get all of these during the week. There are some that will be prioritized over others for obvious reasons.

Books I plan to read this week:

Weekly Reading Plans: 7/19/21

This is a very light week. It looks like I only have one book to read for a blog tour. Which helps. I can finally chip away at my back log. If I keep having weeks like this, I’ll be caught up in no time! The goal is to read and enjoy reading at the end of the day though.

For Blog Tours:

Fish Heads and Duck Skin by Lindsey Salatka

Back Log:

Where It All Lands by Jennie Wexler
Blue Madagascar by Andrew Kaplan
Publius: Sic Semper Tyrannis by Baltazar Bolado

To Finish:

1st to Die by James Patterson
Rules For Vanishing by Kate Alice Marshall

The Project by Courtney Summers
Perfect on Paper by Sophie Gonzales

Book Club and Buddy Reads:

Confessor by Terry Goodkind
Long Bright River by Liz Moore

Book of The Month:

Half Sick of Shadows by Laura Sebastian

I will most likely not finish all of these books this week. Those who aren’t finished will be rolled over to the next week until I get to them. This just helps keep me organized. Something I should have started doing a long long time ago. Better late than never I guess!

Weekly Wrap Up: 6/12/21

On Monday, I lost my job. For the most part, the decision was mine. It’s not a decision I wanted to make in all honesty. I wanted to be able to reach a compromise that worked for both myself and the company. Sadly, they were unwilling to budge in their decision. It’s okay though. I will move on. I will find another job. Right now, looking for a job is not in my best interest. I’ll be leaving for Texas in about two weeks. I’ll be there until the beginning of August. In August, I’ll be in Savannah for a week and then I’ll be home. I had told my job about this before I officially go the job offer and was told it wasn’t a problem. But I digress. I’m not intending to bash the company. I’m just very disappointed with how things turned out. I know my attendance wasn’t the best, but neither was my health. Things turn out as they should.

Since I lost my job, I have managed to finished nine books. I am on track to finish a lot more. I went from feeling overwhelmed and agitated when I tried to read to getting multiple books read in the span of a few days. It hit me very quickly that the reasons I have been unable to read is that I was facing burn out and stress. This is why I feel like everything is working out as it should.

Other than that, I haven’t really had many things going on in my life this week. Not that that’s a really bad thing. I’m hoping something that works out between now and when I get home. Ideally, I’d like to freelance or be my own boss in something big. Right now, I don’t see that happening. At least not at a full time scale capacity. We will see. Hope everybody has had a fantastic week. Despite how the week started, it’s been an amazing week for me. I’m blessed to have so much support in my life.

Weekly Wrap Up: 6/5/21

This week has been really uneventful in all honesty. I watched some Bull. I got caught up on my buddy read with my mother. I even finally got to listen to some audiobooks that I need to listen to. I had a busy week with work, but nothing majorly eventful in all honesty.

I’ve been struggling with some work related things and some anxieties surrounding it. I don’t see myself holding my job too much longer. I’m struggling with going ahead and looking for a new job or keep fighting and doing everything in my power to keep the job.

I did finally obtain my logo though! It’s so beautiful and I love it very much! I’ve been working on this in the background for a few weeks. It has been well worth the wait in my opinion. Next step is to try to get some business cards printed out. I feel like everything is more official to me now!

I did pick up a new television show. Well new to me. It’s been around for over a decade. It’s based on a book series I love. It only aired for one season. It’s a great show from what I can see so far. As long as I separate it from the book series that is. They are nothing alike. I find that I shouldn’t be surprised. I mean look how far off Along Came a Spider was. Both are by the same author.

Hoping that next week will be more productive than this week. At least I have put the vaccination behind me now. I may be able to go out without a mask now, but I don’t think I will. I think I’ll still go out with a mask. I have a weak immune system. It’s for the best. With or without the pandemic.

Weekly Wrap Up: 5/22/21

Welcome to Weekly Wrap Up. I will discuss how my week has gone. I will include any pictures I’ve taken for the week and my progress in reading. It won’t be all about books. Just my week in general. I’ll also briefly highlight some books I’ve read during the week.

This was my week of nesting. And another week of not really reading as much as I should. I’m the type of person that really thrives on structure and routine. When curve balls happen, it takes me a bit to get back into my normal routine. I’m really ashamed to admit that, but maybe admitting it will help me overcome it and try my best to learn to go with the flow?

The positive note is that I’m finally catching up and getting back into routine! I still have a lot of writing to do and some writing prompts to post, but they will get there. I am feeling more confident and empowered every day. I’ve also found a to do list pad that helps me stay really organized every day. I’ve been pasting the pages to a notebook and writing some sentences to go with it to turn it into a journal. It’s been amazing!

That’s all I can think to talk about for now. Next week, I go back to my normal routine. I also have a follow up appointment for the emergency surgery I had a few weeks ago and I have an eye doctor appointment on Thursday. That’s been a long time coming if I’m being honest with myself.

Welcome to Weekly Wrap Up. I will discuss how my week has gone. I will include any pictures I’ve taken for the week and my progress in reading. It won’t be all about books. Just my week in general. I’ll also briefly highlight some books I’ve read during the week.

This week has been a very productive and unproductive week for me. It’s been very productive because I have been very busy with training for a new department at work. I haven’t really read much. I started the week out strong with reading, but I kind of flopped. I’ve just been really nervous about not doing well on the final. Especially being as the training was only a week.

Welcome to Weekly Wrap Up. I will discuss how my week has gone. I will include any pictures I’ve taken for the week and my progress in reading. It won’t be all about books. Just my week in general. I’ll also briefly highlight some books I’ve read during the week.

So it’s been about two weeks since I posted one of these certain blogs. The week before last, I had an emergency minor surgery. It was nothing major but it definitely put me off the radar for a little bit. I’m feeling way better now. I also decided to go ahead and begin my Covid vaccine. I will get the second round on June 2nd. I’m a little nervous about that one if I’m being completely honest.

I’ve finished three books this month. In the span of two days. I’m a little worried that reading 21 books last month may have taken a toll on me. We shall see. There is a readathon going on next week. So that might help me so much. The theme is to read all books by one author. I’m choosing to read half of the House of Night series. Or going to try to read half of the series anyway. That way I can read the other half of the series next month for their re-read themes.

Weekly Wrap Up: 4/24/21

Welcome to Weekly Wrap Up. I will discuss how my week has gone. I will include any pictures I’ve taken for the week and my progress in reading. It won’t be all about books. Just my week in general. I will also highlight my five favorite blogs I’ve read during the week.

This has been a very busy week. I’ve read a lot. I had something major happened that has completely changed everything for me. For the better. Everything will be okay. In fact, I’m pretty sure that everything is going to look up from here!

I’m still reading up a storm but it’s cooled down a bit. I’m still reading every moment I can. Pretty soon, I’ll be watching some television as well. I need to start making a list of television shows I want to watch here soon. I’m also open for suggestion.
