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!
These past two weeks have been really good actually. I had a few days off of work and my boyfriend and I celebrated our 10th anniversary. As I mentioned before, we went to go and see Home Free. The concert was amazing. I’m still so amazed by the fact they only use their voices.
Besides that I used some of my free time to get some reading done. Unfortunately, the weather has been really rainy and windy. On a positive not, it’s great weather to spend with a book and enjoy kitty cuddles.
And last but not least, I relaxed a bit yesterday with my mom and a treat. It’s her birthday Monday and seeing how I’ll be at work, we celebrated a bit early. I love little moments like that.
Okay, even though I have been reading more of my own books, these past two weeks haven’t been good with the amount of ARCs I’ve added to my Kindle. Oops!! I have to say all except one are for authors I already read for frequently!
Down and Dirty is the next book in the Hot Jocks series by Kendall Ryan. I love these sports romances and they’re nice to read in between all the tougher books I end up picking up!
The Perdurables is the next book in the Chalam Faerytales series. It’s more of a backstory apparently, but I’m still so excited!! This author has created a world I just can’t get enough of.
One Night Stand In by Lauren Blakely is the third in the Boyfriend Material series. The first two were so much fun and I read both in one sitting, so I know I’ll fly through this one as well.
Unrequited is the start of the next rock star romance series by Julia Wolf. We’ve met the main character before and I’m so excited!! Her books are addicting and leave you wanting more.
More Than Just a Pretty Face is a book I stumbled upon on Netgalley. Isabelle and I are autoapproved by a publisher and this one was just put on the site. It sounds so good and doesn’t release until August, so I have some time, haha.
Since the last Royal Update, I’ve finished 9 books: Hunted, Sorcery of Thorns, Always Yours, Great and Precious Things, We Used to Be Friends, The Struggle, Tweet Cute, Ashlords and Heartstopper Vol. 1.
At the moment I’m still reading Elantris. This is for Cosmerealong and I read the scheduled chapters every week! I’m also reading Heartstopper Vol. 2, Devil Side, The Prophecy and The Upside of Falling!
This week I want to get a lot of reading done. So besides continuing with what I’m working on, I’ll be picking up Wicked Saints (re-read), One Plus Two, One Night Stand In, The Perdurables, Runaway Road and Magic Unleashed.
If I’m honest, I kind of forget to keep track of bookish news this past week, haha. I do have a cover reveal and a book announcement though.
I finally bought something I can show you in the shop log, haha. Well, I received something. I saw a really cute Snoopy booksleeve and my mother bought it for me as an early birthday gift. I love it! And I got the Sorcery of Thorns bookmark from Bookgizmo as well.
I’ve actually been playing catch up with some of the shows I love, but got behind on. This Is Us, A Million Little Things and Nancy Drew have been occupying my time lately. I’m loving all of them and just can’t get enough.
I actually haven’t really listened to much music this week except for the radio. I was really into my audiobook. Do you have any music recommendations for me?
So that’s what I’ve been up to the last two weeks! How are you doing? If you’ve seen or read anything interesting, I’d love to know about it! Have a great week!
