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?!
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
