What have you been reading this week?
Anyone else having a tough time at the moment? I’ll be honest, there is a lot going on and I can’t say that I’m handling it very well. It’ll be alright but I just feel so tired. So tired that reading is proving to be more difficult than I’d ideally like. I can’t even bring myself to write my blogs these days. My next holiday isn’t until late September and that seems like a really long time away. I’m sure it’ll start getting better soon. I might just need to take a break from a few extracurricular things for a bit. One of the reasons that this post is so short.
Weekly Blog Posts
- BOOKISH POST – Jazz by Toni Morrson
Toni Morrison is such a fantastic writer but I’ve definitely not read enough of her work. So, when I needed a J title last month, I picked up this beauty. I wasn’t sure what to expect and I almost didn’t finish it in time. Was it as good as her more well-known books? You’ll need to head over to my review to see.
- TUESDAY REVIEW – Space Jam: A New Legacy (2021)
Space Jam is one of my all-time favourite films. I know that probably doesn’t make sense to a lot of people. After all, it was quite a dire film and is the absolute definition of capitalist greed. Yet, there is something so wonderful about the ridiculousness of it all. I will never get tired of it. Which is why I was so unsure about whether or not I’d watch the new film. How could it compare? Surely it would just be a pale imitation? Head over to my review to find out if that’s true.
Nothing. I’ve made good headway on my current read but I’m still ploughing through it. I had a couple of false starts and quite a few early nights this week.
- The Tenets in the Tattoos by Becky James
This book is released on Monday 9th August and I was really hoping to have my review ready to go in time. I still have a bit further to go, so I just need to settle in today and get it done.
No new books this week. I’ve been too tired to think about shopping.
- Taskmaster– When I’m feeling low, I do that thing where I rewatch familiar TV shows. It’s about the comfort and not having to pay attention. It’s about the only thing that I can focus on right now, so I’m going with it. I bet I’m watching Rick and Morty again next week to carry on the cycle.
