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!
It were two busy weeks! I started studying to become a school teacher and started my internship last week. It was a lot of fun and the kids in my class are super sweet. I also have a great class to study with and all around I’m incredibly happy I decided to go back to school.
Most of my energy has gone to studying and the rest went into my rehabilitation and getting back into horse riding haha. So I haven’t been reading as much as I wanted to unfortunately. Still, I had exciting weeks! And in less than two weeks I will turn 30! I can’t believe my birthday is this close.
I couldn’t help myself haha. So I did get one more ARC. Chosen Ones is Veronica Roth’s new series and it’s an adult one. The premise sounds really cool and I’m excited to see what Veronica created for us.
As I said, I haven’t been reading as much as I hoped I would. But I did pick up a couple of big books and I’m very happy with that. I read Heartstopper for Valentine’s Day and loved it. For the Cosmerealong I’m in the middle of Elantris, and I also have to continue reading Vengeful. And I’m happy to say I finished Sorcery of Thorns and Drums of Autumn. I’m not sure what I will be picking up next yet, so that will be a surprise for us all 😉
There haven’t been a lot of bookish new this past week. But we did get a couple of cover reveals! Let’s take a look at these gorgeous covers.
I got myself a BookBestie! This gorgeous booksleeve is Sabrina themed <3. It’s made up off a bunch of the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina covers and I think it looks amazing. The quality is quite good and I’m super happy with it.
I also ordered a couple of funko’s haha. They haven’t arrived yet so I will probably include them in a later update. But I can already tell you that one of the funko’s fit the book sleeve very well ;).
I have been trying to watch as much of Bates Motel as possible. It got removed from the Dutch Netflix last week so I had to make to most of it ;). Other than that I have been watching my weekly shows.
I also watched a couple of Netflix movies. Of course I had to watch To All The Boys Ive Loved Before: P.S. I Still Love You and right after I rewatched To All The Boys Ive Loved Before haha. I also watched SPF-18 (hated it) and The Kissing Booth (loved it). It’s pretty weird to see I watched so many romance movies haha. I guess I was in the Valentine’s mood 😉
I have made a playlist this past year with all the numbers that had some meaning or that I have been listening to a lot. This playlist is the music of my year of being 29 and I plan on making a new one after my birthday. It’s going to be a lot of fun to come back to these years later and remember what I was listening to at a certain point in my life. Since my birthday is very soon I have been listening to it a lot lately!
