Royal Update #60

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 I don’t have really any exciting news to tell. We’re still on lockdown and everything is basically closed. Last weekend I did do an online escape room with friends and it was a lot of fun. Some puzzles were really hard, but it’s interesting to see how to solve them and win the game. We’re going to do another one in the near future.

We also got our first snowstorm in 11 years and it’s nice to see. It’s really cold and I’m glad I don’t have to go anywhere for a few days. Great weather to stay inside with a blanket. I have a few more week of work and then two weeks off. Hopefully we’ll be able to do a little more by then!

It’s been another busy week for ARCs, haha. There are a few for TBR and Beyond Tours, a few I’m just curious about and one I was really excited about. I decided to request Bridge of Souls on Edelweiss, but never expected to be approved, but I was!! I’m hoping to squeeze it in soon.

Since my last Royal Update I’ve read Check Please!: Vol.2, The Last Best Story, Only Mostly Devastated, Cinderella is Dead, A Pinch of Magic, The Island, White Trash Warlock, Overachiever and Hot British Boyfriend.

At the moment I’m currently reading Obsidian, Bringing Down the Duke, Branded by a Song, Cemetery Boys, Octavia Bloom & the Missing Key and Always and Forever, Laura Jean.

This week I plan on picking up The Gilded Ones, The Good Girls and The Bookworm Crush.

There were some cover reveals I saw this week and I’m excited about. Let’s take a look at what I found!

All shops here are still closed, so shopping isn’t really a thing. The only thing I recently purchased online were socks, haha. I’m still waiting for them to be delivered though.

My boyfriend and I are still watching the second season of The OC and will be finishing the second season before this comes online. While I’m typing this I just started watching Firefly Lane. I’m really enjoying it and want to give the books a try now.

I’ve still been listening to my Brings Back Memories playlist. That’s how I work though. I love certain songs and then listen to them until I get tired of hearing them. I know Pentatonix is releasing an album soon, so I’ll probably take time to take a listen!


So that’s my update about the past couple of weeks. How have you been? Have you read anything I need to know about? Let me know in the comments. I’d love to hear from you!

  1. I’ve never heard of an online escape room. I’ve done a few in person, and they’re so much fun! I’ll have to see if we have any online ones around here because that’d be a lot of fun. And I love all the Lara Jean books! Have you seen the movies on Netflix yet?

    1. Yeah, I didn’t know they existed until last weekend. I definitely recommend them though. And I have! I’m so excited for the last one to come on Netflix!!
