What have you been reading this week?

Well, that week flew by didn’t it. I had a relaxing week off but I, obviously, didn’t get as much done as I intended. There are certain things that I was planning on doing that I haven’t even started yet. Either I’ll have a super busy day today or, more likely, I’ll just collapse under the pressure of trying to get everything done. At the very least, I need to try and read more. Something I definitely could have done last week but I played too much Animal Crossing instead. There are just so many pumpkins to make stuff out of. It’s so exciting. So, what else did I actually achieve this week?

What have you been reading this week?

Today was the first day of my week off and I’m so happy. There’s been so much to get through recently that I’m looking forward to not having to worry about anything for a bit. Of course, my colleagues will definitely leave everything for me to do when I get back, so I’m simply putting off the stress for another week. Never mind. All I’m focusing on now is making the most of my week. I say this every time but I’m actually planning on reading as much as possible. I’ve a lot of Agatha Christie that I want to get through this month as well as loads of other things on my TBR.

What have you been reading this week?

This week started so well in a number of ways but quickly descended into more negative territory. I managed to finish some books but then my reading broke down. I’ve finished one short story and started one audiobook. That’s it. I’ve not been sleeping too well and, if I’m honest, have been spending too much time playing Animal Crossing. Well, I did pay for it so I might as well get my money’s worth. It does mean that I’m going to have to do something major today in order to get a review up tomorrow. I’m sure I can manage it. All I’ve got to do today is take this week’s photos and general weekend admin. Easy peasy.

What have you been reading this week?

I’ll be honest, I was surprised by how productive my week has been. Especially as last weekend I finally allowed myself to buy Animal Crossing. I’m already obsessed. Although I have already restarted my game once because I ended up hating the layout of my island. My second game is going much better but I do regret the placement of my house. Once I make enough bells I’ll definitely have to move it. In between all of this island living, I have managed to do some reading. It’s a miracle.

What have you been reading this week?

So much has changed in a week. After being back in work for exactly 6 days, I’m now back at home. They have decided that it makes more sense to have fewer people in the office just in case someone gets it. It means that I’ve been getting more sleep than I had been. Although, it’s not been a completely positive week. I woke up with an awful cold on Wednesday and I’ve been feeling rotten ever since. Yes, I should be grateful it’s only a cold and nothing worse. Especially now the UK really is in another downward spiral. It looks like we’re definitely not going to be able to do anything with the rest of this year. Good job Autumn is all about staying in and reading.

What have you been reading this week?

As expected, this week has been long and tiring. I’m not saying that I’d enjoy working from home for the rest of my life but it was at least allowing me to get some sleep. I’m not quite in my old pattern so it was a struggle to get everything done. Which is why I didn’t actually get everything done. Not only have I still not finished my current read but I skipped a blog post. I just couldn’t do it. It doesn’t help that I’ve definitely caught a cold from someone in my office. I guess it’s to be expected after avoiding everyone for so long and I should be grateful that it’s not something worse. Especially as we’re in another local lockdown. I don’t know who Boris is trying to kid with his talk about a lack of national lockdown. He’s such a waste of space.

What have you been reading this week?

Tomorrow is my first day back in the office since March. I’m not sure how it’s going to go. I’ve been shielding for so long that the idea of sitting in a small office is a bit weird but I was given the impression that I needed to come back. On the plus side, I’ll not longer be working extra time unpaid. There’s also the issue of getting back to my schedule. I’ve been able to finish writing a bit later because I wasn’t having to get up as early. It’ll take a bit of time to get back into my old routine. I doubt I’ll get much reading done in the first few weeks back. Good job I’ve already reached my 2020 target.

What have you been reading this week?

As much as I don’t want to be “that guy”, how the hell is it September already? 2020 is flying by and, let’s be honest, things aren’t looking much better than they were a few months ago. Yes, the number of deaths per day has gone down but it’s not as if the threat has gone away. Then there’s the fact that the economy is tanking and it’s only going to get worse when we get an inevitable no-deal Brexit. The only people who are going to happy when that happens are Boris Johnson and his rich friends. Still, everyone who voted Leave will still find a way to blame everyone but the government. Do you remember when we all saw 2020 as a turning point? The only good thing about it has been the amount I’ve read so far.

What have you been reading this week?

It’s not like 2020 was going well but August has been a big blow to the year. Last week, drag queen Chi Chi DeVayne died at the age of 34 and yesterday we woke up to the news that Chadwick Boseman had died after a long battle with cancer. Boseman was only 43. It’s no age. I don’t normally like to buy into that Social Media displays of mourning for famous people but this got to me. I was crying when scrolling through Twitter. The actor may be best remembered for bringing the superhero Black Panther to the screen and giving some much needed representation in the MCU. However, he was so much more than that. Boseman was a fantastic actor and always followed his beliefs. He did great things for the Black community and he will be sorely missed by so many. I’ve decided to dedicate this week to him and will be reviewing two of his films.

How has your week been? What have you been reading?

What a week. Work has been super stressful at the moment. Everyone is super busy and stretched. I’ve been tired and frustrated all week, which means I haven’t done a great deal of reading. Thankfully, I am ahead on my reading, so I don’t have to rush through anything his weekend. However, it is something that I need to get in order. I’m slowly realising that I have quite a few pre-orders coming in September and my TBR is already too large. I’d better get reading then.
