book haul, books, currently reading, Netflix, recently watched

Today I’ve spent the day trying to sort my life out… or at least my room. Although, I’ve spent most of the afternoon cleaning and moving things around and I don’t think I like it. Basically, I have too much stuff and I’m trying desperately to declutter. It’s so difficult when I’m a hoarder at heart. I have books that I’ve not read for years and mementos from trips I’ve long forgotten that I just won’t get rid of. And don’t even get me started on how many bloody mugs and tea cups that I have. Anyway, I’ve been as brutal as I ever really get and have moved things around. My only problem now is that my playstation is further into my room meaning the WIFI signal is even weaker. I know this is a first world problem but how the hell am I supposed to watch Netflix for hours at a time now? God, what am I going to do? Read?!

Recently Finished

  • The Versions of Us by Laura Barnett (Kindle edition)

I still find it a bit dodgy counting finishing an audiobook as a “recently finished” but it’s a book so it must still count. Right? Anyway, in lieu of anything else to review on Tuesday I’ll be talking through my thoughts then.

Currently Reading
  • The 7th Function of Language by Laurent Binet
Still not further on with this. Still kind of pissed off at myself for it. How I have become so obsessed with audiobooks all of a sudden? I used to hate the damn things.

Recently Purchased
  • Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by JK Rowling (20th Anniversary House Editions)
I preordered a load of these House covers ages ago and they finally got released this week. I now, as my sister helped me realise, own 8 copies of this book. I decided I had to get both the paperback and hardback Ravenclaw because of House loyalty. Then, a few weeks later, I caved an ordered the rest of the paperbacks. I know it’s really bad but they are so pretty and I’d hate to miss out on them. And, I’m not going to pretend that I haven’t already added all of the other Hardbacks to my Amazon cart and am waiting til it’s an appropriate time to order them too.

Recently Watched
  • Netflix binges: Episodes, Jumaji, Austin Powers in Goldmember
I don’t think I’ve been watching much Netflix recently. I’ve replaced my bleary eyed morning viewing with an audiobook and I’ve not seemed to watch much in the evenings. Still, I decided it was time to catch up with the two series of Epsiodes that I’d missed and rewatch a couple of films from my youth. I don’t know why but as soon as Netflix advised me that the third Austin Powers film was now available I was hit with a wave of nostalgia. So I had to watch it.
