What have you been reading this week?

What is it about the week following a bank holiday that makes it so much harder? I guess its partly trying to fit 5 days of work into 4 days. However, this has been a super weird week. Some moron decided it would be funny to smash a load of windows at 1am on Thursday morning and 3 of ours got broken. It was an early hours wake up call that resulted in very little sleep. Meaning I’ve been spending the rest of the week trying to catch up on sleep. Meaning I’ve not done as much reading as I normally would have. It’s very disappointing but I can’t do anything about it now. Thankfully, May is a pretty easy one for my reading challenge.

For the first time in a while, we’re starting off on a positive note. Work seems to have been less stressful this week. I’ve also spent some proper time reading. Not as much as I’d have liked but some. I spent some of yesterday finishing my last read and it feels like a huge relief. Hopefully, I can make a good start on my new read today. Although, in terms of my Spell the Month Challenge, I officially only have 2 letter left to go. I don’t either of my picks for those will take too long, so I shouldn’t need to worry too much. Of course, this is exactly the point when dramatic irony would normally kick in and they turn out to be quite intense and long reads. But we’ll see.

What have you been reading this week?

I love the idea of a 4-day working week. Starting working on Tuesday was a lot less stressful than it will be tomorrow. Although, I can’t say that it’s been a good week but that’s mostly because the other guy in my role was on holiday. That means I was doing the work of 2 people over a shorter period. Friday was a particularly rough day and I was glad to see the weekend. I really need some time off. I can see things only getting busier over the next few weeks. So, I’m also getting ready for my reading to drop off dramatically too. I’m already struggling to read and am having to resort to audiobooks to get me through. I’ve got nothing against them but I’m not exactly concentrating on them as much as I should. I’m about to tackle our super short book club read, which I hope will get me out of this funk. But we’ll see.

Happy Easter folks! I hope you’re all having a fabulous Easter weekend. As expected, I’ve spent barely any time this bank holiday reading. I’ve managed to have a good time though. I managed to see a friend that I’ve not seen properly for ages and then we’re having a small family get-together today. It’s nice that things are slowly getting better in the UK. Fingers crossed that we don’t end up in another lockdown in a few months. Although, maybe that would help my reading stay more consistent?

Tuesday Review – Yes Day (2021)

Rating: 2 out of 5.

I’ll be the first to admit that I didn’t put much effort into my film choice for this week but things haven’t gone as I expected this weekend. Being incredibly exhausted and pretty busy was a terrible combination. So, when it came time to watch something, I was mostly looking for something quick and tat didn’t require any real effort. At one point, I’d considered watching the Snyder cut of Justice League but I wasn’t capable of concentrating on something for over 4 hours. Especially something that I didn’t enjoy enough the first time to really want to watch again. Instead of Snyder, I turned to Netflix and found the least appealing film that I could find. The fact that it ran to just under 90 minutes was just a happy bonus.

So, that’s another weekend that’s just flown by. How is it possible for every weekend to pass by in a matter of minutes? I don’t feel rested or relaxed. If anything, I’m more tired now than I was. I need an extra two days to recover from my two days off. I also didn’t get as much reading done as I wanted but I only have one more letter to cross off. Hopefully, I can at least finish my monthly challenge for March. How the hell am I going to finish August, September and the other long ones?

What have you been reading this week?

Work still feels stressful this week but things are finally starting to look up. I’m back to working 4/5 days a week which gives me more time to get things done. As much as I’ve enjoyed having my afternoons to sort out my life, it’s not been easy and I wouldn’t want to keep it up for long. With lockdown coming to an end, it’s weird to think that I could be back in the office soon. Back to a normal work schedule. Of course, it’s been such a long time since life was actually normal and it won’t really be normal yet. Who even knows if anything will be properly normal again anyway? But lets not get too deep this soon. On the plus side, the elevating of stress has given me more energy to read, which mean I’m in a better position than last week. Hopefully, I can bring March back from reading despair.

What have you been reading this week?

I’ve had a genuinely terrible reading week. I started Klara and the Sun last Thursday and I only finished it yesterday. I’ve not been sleeping well and have been falling asleep after a few pages. I just don’t have the concentration at the moment. Which is worrying. Not least because I have only read 2 books so far this month and neither of them were letters towards my Spell the Month challenge. I’ve should still have enough time to complete the challenge but I will have to start getting quicker. Going from 10 books a month to 2 in 2 weeks is a huge dip. I just don’t know what’s wrong with me. Work’s been super stressful lately, so I’m going to blame that.

What have you been reading this week?

What a mad week. Work is getting more and more stressful as the days go by. That’s mainly because we’re being asked to do more despite the fact that we’re working fewer days. We’ll get there. On the other hand, I’ve had a pretty fun week. It was my birthday on Friday and we made the best of it considering the circumstances. I also got a few book related things to get excited about. Have I done enough reading? Not at all. Who can read with so much going on? I do need to get better this week. I have stuff for my next 2 reviews but I will need to catch up before next week. Today is going to have to be book focused.
