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!
MOVING DAY!!! When you’re reading this I’m moving house! Super exciting but also a lot of work haha. These past weeks I’ve been packing, shopping for ‘necessary’ stuff and trying to decide what needs to come with my. For example, I had to make a selection of which books to bring as I don’t have room for all of them. I will share which books I decided on this week in a bookish item!
Other than all the moving stuff, I’ve been working a lot. I can’t wait till summer, when I will actually have 3 weeks off. And hopefully I can enjoy some nice weather before that. Cafe’s and restaurants are slowly opening up a bit, let’s hope they can stay open longer and longer. I can’t wait to sit outside, drink my wine and watch people stroll by!
Just one new ARC, and a super exciting one at that! I loved Sophie Gonzales’ previous novel and I think this will be another great one. Can’t wait to read it <3
I finished Six of Cows in no time at all! It was an amazing reread and I’m so happy we’re doing this. Currently reading Crooked Kingdom and I’m already scared. I also read some poetry; to make monsters out of girls, to drink coffee with a ghost and The Hill We Climb. After that I finished The Umbrella Academy vol 1, vol 2 will be read soon! And lastly I read Dead Voices.
I think most people saw the same announcement I did, but I had to share it anyway! Looks like I have until January 25th to finish reading House of Earth and Blood haha. The title for book 2 sounds great, I’m definitely excited!
I bought a bunch off stuff for my new place, including a new TBR cart. Since I still have to put it together, I don’t have a picture yet. I also have some cute paper replicas and a super cool t-shirt on their way to me. Can’t wait to receive those. And lastly I bought a bunch of stuff for a possible new hobby. Hope to share more about that soon!
Of course I have been watching Shadow and Bone! I’m thinking go rewatching soon because it was AMAZING. It was better than I could’ve hoped for and I can’t wait for the next season. I’m also still rewatching The Vampire Diaries, I have until May 31st, after that it gets removed from the Dutch Netflix. Last night I finished season 6 so I just have the 2 last seasons to go.
After watching Shadow and Bone, I found a Six of Crows Spotify list by @Sour_wolf. I follow her on TikTok and Insta and love her content. The Spotify playlist is spot on and I have been listening to it non-stop!
And that was the Royal Update for this week! Have you watched Shadow and Bone yet? Watch out for my review at the end of the week. Let me know your thoughts in the comments!
