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!
Candyce said it last week and I can only confirm, the weather here has been horrible haha. It’s so warm and humid and even though we’ve got some rain my house is not cooling down at all. So the last couple of weeks have been about working and trying to cool down in my blow up pool haha. But last weekend I’ve also been surprised by some of my best friends. In March I turned 30 but I wasn’t able to celebrate because of the lockdown.
Last Saturday I thought I was going to work, but ten minutes in my friends showed up singing Happy Birthday and took me away! I was so surprised and was shaking all over haha. We rented a boat and had a great day on a lake and went out for dinner afterwards. I’m so grateful to my friends for organizing this and love them so much.
I have two wonderful eARC’s to share with you all. First off is Chasing Starlight, I am part of the upcoming blog tour for this and I’m super excited. This sounds like my kind of story and I hope it lives up to my expectations. The second one is The End of Men and honestly I wanted it mostly for the title haha. I just got approved and I can’t wait to start it!
The last books I finished are The Diviners, A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder, Slay, Well Met and The Backstagers vol. 2. All great reads! I’m currently reading The Inheritance Games by Jennifer Lynn Barnes and I’m loving it. This is going to be such a fast read but I’m not sure which book I will read after to be honest.
My latest obsession has been Teenage Bounty Hunters. This new Netflix show is hilarious and I bingewatched the first season. I also finished the third season of Good Girls and the first season of Get Even. In between I watched Love on the Spectrum, an amazing show! And I watched a couple of episodes of All American. Yes I’ve watched wayyy to many shows haha.
I have been listening to country music a lot lately and mostly to the Hot Country Spotify list haha. These are some of the most popular new country songs and I just add the ones I like to my personal list. I really like country and I’m glad to have a playlist for whenever I’m in the mood for it.
