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 feel like I’m repeating myself over and over again in these updates recently haha. We’re still in lockdown and it is going to be longer than they first anticipated. I did start off quite well with my New Year’s resolution. This year I wanted to work-out at least once a week next to my horse riding. Last week I did do one work-out but this week I actually did three! I had to get a new exercise mat because I left mine in France to do yoga there haha. It was so nice to move my body again and I can’t wait to be back in a better shape. Last time I noticed a change really quickly, it started to become easier to do the exercises week after week and I can’t wait for that feeling again.
I actually did get three new eARC’s. But I’m not mad at myself because I already read 3 of the three and I also finished 3 other arc’s this month. I just have to write a couple of reviews but I feel like I’m getting on top of things again!
The three new eARC’s are Riverdale: The Ties That Bind, Quincredible vol.1 and Delicates. All are graphic novels so that definitely helps things!
I’m really happy with my reading the past weeks! First I finished the eARC I was reading, A Deadly Education. I also finished my audiobook; self-care for Pisces. That was so amazing! After that I finished 4 (!) more eARC’s. A Curse of Gold, Riverdale: The Ties That Bind, Quincredible vol 1 and Perfect on Paper. There were some amazing books in that stack and you can expect reviews on all of them very soon.
I’m still reading Letter to the Lost and I’m also back with The Damned. Next up is probably Hollowpox and A Closed and Common Orbit. I’m also thinking about These Violent Delights for my next eARC.
Slowly we’re getting more bookish news again. The most exciting piece for me was this announcement of a deal for a new Brittany Morris book!
I’m happy to say I didn’t buy anything this week haha. It’s time to start saving again!
I started the show Lupin (and I am loving it). Of course I finished watching Bridgerton and the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (my heart!!). I also started catching up on All American. And the first episode of Prodigal Son season 2 was released, so happy to have this show back!
I have been obsessed with The Kid LAROI’s album F*CK LOVE (SAVAGE). You might have heard of the song Without You and while some of the lyrics are a tat problematic I have to say I love the album. I have been listening to it on repeat and I still can’t get enough. Maybe, So Done and Always Do are three of my favorite songs.
And that was my Royal Update for this week! January is almost over and I can’t believe how fast this year is already going. Before you know it, it’s my birthday haha. How’s the start of your 2021?
