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!
Once again, these past two weeks haven’t been very exciting. Just work and sticking to my own bubble. Things are still not really getting better here, so I rather be safe than sorry. The weather has been cold and wet, so it’s the perfect kind of weather to curl up with a blanket and book. At least I have enough to read and watch to keep me busy!
Since my last Royal Update I’ve added a few ARCs to my Kindle. I don’t think I’ve gone a week without a new ARC, haha. Oops!
The Tigers in the Tower – Julia Golding I’m a big fan of middle grade adventures and this sounds like an interesting one. I’ll be reading this one soon!
Master of One – Jaida Jones & Danielle Bennett A book with fae, romance and adventure. Yes please! I’m on a book tour for this one in November and I’m so excited!!
Muses & Melodies – Rebecca Yarros Nixon is a character that caught my eye in the first book in this trilogy and I can’t wait to read his story.
The Boyfriend Effect – Kendall Ryan What I love about Kendall Ryan’s books is that they’re always what I need in a romance. They’re fast, fun and have amazing characters. This one sounds like it’s going to give me everything I want again in a romance book.
House of Dragons – K.A. Linde I love this author’s writing and House of Dragons is pitched as a book for fans of Sarah J. Maas, Holly Black and V.E. Schwab. The story sounds interesting, but I’m even more curious when it’s written like that.
Since my last Royal Update I’ve read A Curse of Gold, Kind of a Big Deal, Loathe Thy Neighbor, You Had Me at Hola, A Golden Fury, Lies & Lullabies, Even if We Break, Tunnel of Bones and The King’s 100.
At the moment I’m currently reading Kingdom of the Wicked, Stones Unturned, Running and Premeditated Myrtle.
This week I’ll be starting a few books: Something Happened to Ali Greenleaf, Furyborn, Beastly Bones and One Way or Another.
There was one item of bookish news this week that really caught my eye. I am reading The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue now and am loving it. I think this will definitely be a great thing to see on screen.
I finally have something to share in my shop log. In a few weeks I’ll be getting a new phone and I know which one I want. That meant it was also time to look at phone cases. I don’t have my phone yet, but have my cases ready to go.
I’ve been wanting to see Last Christmas since I heard about it last year and I finally got around to watching it. This movie wasn’t exactly what I was expecting, but I loved it! I know it’s only October, but I’m definitely getting into a Christmas mood!
Like I said last time after the Mad World cover Pentatonix I’ve been hooked to their music again. This past week on my commute to work when I’m not listening to an audiobook, I have this playlist on.
So that’s my Royal Update for this week. How have you been? Read any interesting books I need to know about? Let me know in the comments! I’d love to hear from you.
