Royal Update #171

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!

This past weekend I had an extra day off and I’ve mostly been relaxing haha. I’ve been a bit sick and also just really tired. Work has been challenging the past couple of weeks and there was so much to do. I can’t wait to have two weeks off very soon. Luckily I also did some fun things lately, I finished my Lego Hogwarts Castle this weekend and last week I saw the musical Les Miserables with my mom. I loved it a lot!

I got one new eARC this week, I couldn’t stop myself after seeing this title and gorgeous cover! It’s Shanghai Immortal by A.Y. Chao, an adult fantasy debut. I really liked the sound of the premise and I’ve seen some positive reviews.

I have read very little the last two weeks unfortunately. At the moment I’m still reading Yellowface (although I’m almost done!) and The Adventures of Amina al-Sirafi. I did finish Haikyu! 4. After finishing these I will pick up another Haikyu! and I think I also want to get back into The Cousins.

Somehow my whole FYP on TikTok is the Hunger Games and so I’ve been rewatching the movies. I bawled my eyes out again and I guess I will also reread the books haha. The prequel movie based on A Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes is releasing this year I believe so I guess I’m just getting ready for that a little early haha.

The other half of my FYP is Taylor Swift haha. Mostly videos from the eras tour so of course I’ve been listening to the set list over and over again. Hopefully I can get my hands on tickets once we actually get an European tour!

And that was my Royal Update! It was a short one but I hope you enjoyed it haha. What have you been reading and watching lately? Let me know in the comments!
