We thought it was time for a fun new post every week. In the Royal Update one of us updates you about our personal life, bookish news, what we’re reading, watching and listening to and anything else that might apply to this post. We thought it would be fun to share a bit more about our personal lives and hope you think so too!
I have mostly been focussing on physical therapy these past couple of weeks. My surgery was almost 6 weeks ago and I still need to work really hard. It’s very tiring and I’m so done haha. But I just have to push through until it all starts to get easier again.
I also had to do a math test for a possible new course I’ve signed up for. It has been years since I really had to use math so I used a workbook and some websites to try and refresh my mind haha. The test was super hard and I should get my results tomorrow. I’m pretty nervous about it!
A little over a week ago I started working again. I started with giving horse riding lessons and it was great being back. Tomorrow I have to see the surgeon, so hopefully he gives me the green light to start doing more, like driving. That way I can start my other job back up as well. I guess this was a pretty boring life update haha, I just haven’t been up to much haha.
I’ve been a very good girl! Since my last Royal Update I didn’t request any arcs. This year I plan on working my way through the ones I already have and all the fantastic books on my shelves.
Candyce and I are doing a buddyread of Mistborn. We should be almost finished with the first book, The Final Empire but I’m failing hard haha. I’m about a third into the book but I’m definitely enjoying it.
To be honest, I’m not really reading anything else. I do plan on picking up a couple of graphic novels and manga soon. Probably the next couple volumes of Saga, the Witch Hat Atelier and the Promised Neverland!
Finally some bookish news to share!! Yay! First off we got two super cool sounding books. It’s going to be a while before they release, but I added them on Goodreads.
Next we have a couple of cover reveals! I think they all look gorgeous, and I’m especially excited for Those Who Prey. This is also seems like the perfect time to pick up the sequel to Ace of Shades soon!
And last but not least, apparently Victoria Schwab wrote a MG series in 2014/2015. I had never heard of this series but this February a bindup of the trilogy will be released with this cute cover! Of course I need this because I though I completed my VE Schwab collection but apparently I didn’t haha.
I ordered a couple of books, which you will see in the bookhaul February 1st! But with that order, I also finally got a protective case for my MacBook. I have been looking for one that fits, looks decent, and isn’t super expensive for a while so I’m very happy I found one!
I love the red and it feels really nice. Since I adore stickers and currently have a ton I haven’t used, I’m thinking of putting them on this case. What do you think?
I’m still on my Gilmore Girls rewatch, but I’m currently at season 5 so I expect to be done quite soon. In between I also rewatched the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina part 1 & 2 so I’m all ready for part 3. The new season of Alexa & Katie was released at the very end of December, so I watched that in about a day haha. I also watched the remainder of season 4 of iZombie and I hope the fifth and final season will come to the Dutch Netflix soon.
This week the first couple of shows started back up, so I watched the Good Place, Superstore and Criminal Minds. For both the Good Place and Criminal Minds this is going to be the final season and while I’m happy they’ll get a satisfying ending, I’m super sad about it! I also finished watching HSM the Musical the Series haha.
Since the ‘trailer’ for the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina part 3 dropped I have been listening to that song non stop! I love the idea for that trailer and love the song haha. Other than that, I haven’t been listening to anything specific actually.
