Royal Update #47

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 still really don’t have much to add in my life updates. We’re still in a partial lockdown and I’ve been sticking to my little bubble of work and home. I go to the store when necessary and that’s about it. The weather has been colder and darker, so it’s the best time to curl up with a book! I did participate in a Halloween swap and had fun opening my package. The unboxing will be posted on the blog soon. For now, here’s a picture of Shadow investigating everything.

I actually did good these past two weeks. Since my last royal update I’ve only received two new ARCs. I’m enjoying having more freedom while reading, so I hope it stays a bit slow.

The Cousins – Karen M. McManus I recently read One of Us is Next and was pleasantly surprised by that story. I signed up for the November blog tour of Karen’s next book, The Cousins. I’m really excited about this one!

Love & Olives – Jenna Evans Welch I read and loved Love & Gelato and Love & Luck, so I was really excited when the publisher sent an email if I wanted to read and review. This book takes us to Greece and I’m expecting this one to be just as good as the first two.

Since my last royal update I finished reading: The Bone Garden, The Mall, Fix Her Up, In a Holidaze, B*Witch, The Tigers in the Tower, Damaged Desires, Ghostly Echoes and Well Played.

At the moment I’m reading Vampires Never Get Old, Master of One, Lovely and the Lost and The Night Swim.

This week I’m hoping to start reading Little Monsters, Born at Dawn, The Boy the Wolf and the Stars and Vampires of Moscow.

There wasn’t a lot of bookish news I was really excited about this week. I do have a cover reveal I’m really excited about. LJ has quickly become one of my favorite authors and she released the cover to her next book.

I normally don’t have anything to share in my shop log, but it’s the second time in a row I have something to show. I got a new phone last week and there is no normal headphone jack and I didn’t like the ones that came with the phone at all! So I got some wireless ones and I love them.

Also, I’m a big fan of blankets and when I was sending a package this week, I saw this hooded snuggle blanket in the store across from where I was. It was on sale and it’s so comfortable. I won’t be leaving my house the rest of the year, haha.

I know we just started November, but I’m in a Christmas mood. Hallmark and Lifetime have started their holiday movies and that’s what I’ve been watching nonstop! They’re cheesy, but these movies make me happy!

I’m still really enjoying Spotify premium and was really happy this week. On Friday Sam Smith’s new album released and it’s so good. Love Goes On has been on my playlist on repeat!


So that’s my Royal Update for this week! How have you been? Read anything good lately? Let me know in the comments! I’d love to hear from you.
