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’ve had a busy but fun week last week! First up, I had my first day at school last week! I’m studying to become a teacher and I’m super excited about it. Next week I will have my first day at my internship and I’m pretty nervous about it haha. In two years I will be a certified teacher!
Next is something else that’s super exciting. For the first time since my surgery two months ago I rode my horse again. I’m so happy to back in the saddle. My muscles hurt like crazy and I could only ride for about 20 minutes. Afterwards I could hardly walk, but it was soooo good to back. At the moment I rode 3 times but I will have to take it slow for awhile.
I went for a game night at Candyce’s this weekend. It was nice to just chill and play some games. Her boyfriend also introduced me to an app to read manga online. We eat pizza and just had a great night. The next day we had a crazy storm in the Netherlands. I had lunch plans with a friend and we made it there okay haha. On the highway we had to be quite careful but we had a delicious dinner. I love to spend time with my friends and I’m happy we got some quality time.
I’ve been a good girl and I didn’t request or download any new arcs. When reading I’ve been trying to focus on reading my eARC’s and I’m close to finishing two.
I finally finished the Final Empire! Once I really got back into it, I flew trough it haha. I also finished Witch Hat Atelier 2&3, Come Tumbling Down and The Hand on the Wall. There are a ton of readalongs going on so the coming weeks I will be focusing on Vengeful, Elantris, Hunted and Sorcery of Thorns.
Tons of exciting book deals got announced last week! Let’s take a look!
This time around I didn’t do any shopping! I’m pretty proud of myself haha.
I’m watching a ton of series haha. But I’m mostly focusing on Bates Motel. Netflix will be removing it on the 19th so I only have about a week left to finish the series haha. I just watched the first season and I started the second one. Netflix released Locke & Key last Friday and since I love the graphic novel series, I had to watch that show as well. While my focus is on Bates Motel, I did watch the first episode of Locke & Key and I really liked it!
In March I will be going to a concert by The Script. Their one of my favorite bands and it will be my third concert by them. I’m currently listening to their Sunsets & Full Moons album a lot, so I can sing a long with all the songs at the concert 😉
