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!
When this comes online I’ll be back at work for my first day after having a two week vacation. It’s not going to be a fun day, haha. I had a great vacation though even if it feels like it went by way too fast. The first week we had some fun outings. We went out to dinner for mine and my mother’s birthdays! Later in the week we had a few other outings that were a lot of fun. On Saturday we had book club and that was quite the adventure. When we were in the car on our way to where we meet we were almost in a ten car pile up. It was an interesting morning.
The second week we were going to go away for a night, but the place we wanted to go didn’t have restaurants opened until the end of March. And the tram we could take to get to the beach had a detour until today, so it wasn’t meant to be. So we decided we’ll go away for a day or two in May! We had a relaxing week and on Saturday a friend of ours celebrated his birthday. We did an escape room. It was a morgue escape room, but thankfully it wasn’t as scary as I expected, haha. After that we went out to dinner!
Since my last Royal Update I’ve gotten a few eARCs I’m really excited about! I never expected to get approved for a few of these.
Since my last Royal Update I’ve finished reading: Things We Never Got Over, The Moth Keeper, The Lies of Locke Lamora, Anatomy: A Love Story, The New Girl, The Time I Got Drunk and Saved a Demon, Do I Know You?, and How to Sell a Haunted House.
I’m currently reading: Emily Wilde’s Encyclopaedia of Faeries, Black Sheep, and The Writing Retreat.
Next I’ll be reading: Seven Faceless Saints, Kingdom of the Feared, What Lies in the Woods, and The Adventures of Amina al-Sirafi.
I thought Belladonna was going to be a duology, but I saw the announcement for the title of the third book! This is a series I really want to start soon.
During our vacation I only bought books, haha. So you’ll be seeing those in our bookhaul soon. One book I didn’t buy, but the boyfriend did was this book. We both love The Big Bang Theory, so this book filled with interviews seems like it’ll be an interesting read.
I’ve watched some good things recently! On our movie nights we watched Hidden Figures and We Have a Ghost. I really enjoyed them both.
I also started watching the second season of Shadow and Bone. I’ve only watched one episode so far, but that will be changing really soon.
Being off of work for two weeks meant I didn’t listen to music as often as I do when working. When I was reading I mostly had the radio on, but I was recently listening to this 2000s playlist.
So that’s my Royal Update for this week! How have you been? Have you read or seen anything amazing? Let me know in the comments! I’d love to hear from you.
