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!
My two week vacation started! I was super tired so I’m very glad to have two weeks off. Tomorrow I’m on my way to France where I’ll just be relaxing and reading the whole time haha. Maybe I’ll make a jigsaw puzzle and play a game, I’ll definitely be drinking wine and eating all the food.
The last two weeks I haven’t done that much besides work. There was only one thing worth mentioning I would say. And that is that I officially got my diploma, it was really fun picking it up and getting dinner with my parents and best friend beforehand. I loved celebrating this milestone.
I have two really exciting new eARCs; The Only One Left by Riley Sager and Immortal Longings by Chloe Gong. They both sound amazing and I’m super excited to read them.
I’m a little embarrassed but I’ve hardly read anything these past two weeks (hopefully that changes this week though!). Finally finished Yellowface, still reading The Adventures of Amina al-Sirafi and started reading Never Ever Getting Back Together. Tomorrow I’m on my way to France and there I will be diving into all the books from my ‘Books I’m Bringing to France’ post.
Tiktok is such a big influence on what I’m watching! After seeing a ton of Jury Duty on my fyp I decided to give it a go and I absolutely loved it. I still need to watch the last two episodes and I plan to do so this week. The other thing I’ve seen a lot recently are Scandal edits, so I decided to rewatch Scandal haha.
I’m still listening to Taylor Swift almost non stop. But after seeing a lot of Daisy Jones and the Six on my fyp on Tiktok and also Fleetwood Mac, I’ve started to listen to Fleetwood Mac again. I love their music and I love the fact that the book was based on one of their concerts!
And that was my Royal Update for the week! What have you been reading and watching lately? Any thing you’d recommend? I would love to hear from you in the comments!
