Week Down the Book Hole | 10/7-10/14

I thought it would be fun to do a week in my life in regards to mainly books, but also tv, movies and just overall life! I know I always like to know what people are doing and working on. Just something I am trying out. Who knows it may be horrible and no one will read it.

My to-do list today is beyond crazy, but like every Saturday all I want to do is relax after a crazy week at work. I cleaned my apartment, wrote my #otspsecretsister pen pals and have been working on some blog post. It ended up being a beautiful day although it started out yucky and rainy. I have been catching up on tv shows this morning as I blog, the new episodes of Grey’s, This is Us and season 7 of Shameless! I should go to the gym because I have not been in forever, but I think the kittens and I are just going to curl up, read and snuggle. Today I am reading Night Film by Marisha Pessl.

Today was another lazy day. Reading, tv watching and napping was all on the list of things to do. Although I have a lot I should be doing and places I wanted to go, I thought it best to just relax because work has been so crazy and this week is sure to be another hectic one. I am really loving Night Film by Marisha Pessl. It is dark and strange. I think that the incorporation of other media is such a nice touch to the overall story and makes it that much better. I am really interested to see where the story is going to go because it is nothing like I expected. I am not sure what I expected really to be honest. I finished season 7 of Shameless. I am so addicted to this show it is the perfect amount of drama to distract me from life.

This has been a crazy busy week at work. I was working crazy long hours and by the time I got home I was too exhausted to do much else. I did catch up on a lot of tv shows and spent Friday night reading and watching horror movies. Riverdale season 2 started this week!

I have had quite a busy Saturday. I am always so busy during the week that Saturday ends up being the day I spend cleaning and running errands. I went to the store and bought another bookcase today! I was hoping to get all of my boxes finally unpacked from moving almost 3 months ago. Unfortunately my love of books has made it difficult to get all those boxes unpacked. Although I bought another bookcase I still have 2 small boxes of books that do not have a home yet. I got a ton of “reading” done while I was putting the bookcase together and organizing books while listening to an audiobook. I am going to spend the rest of the night relaxing, possibly watching a movie and attempting to finish  the last 120 pages in Night Film by Marisha Pessl so that I can start fresh for The House Cup Reading Challenge that starts tomorrow! I also want to get some reading done since I will be deployed soon to assist with disaster relief for my job. I could be gone for up to a month or more and wont have any time to read or be able to take any books with me. It will definitely be tough to be without books for that long. And without my kittens. I am making sure to get a lot of kitten cuddles and sharing the love with my books before I leave.

Did you get any reading done this week? Watch any good movies or tv shows? Any exciting or interesting life news?

Let me know what you think of this post!

Friday Reads | Preparing for Read-a-thons & Possible Deployment

I am participating in The House Cup Reading Challenge which starts on Oct. 15th so I really need to get moving with Night Film by Marisha Pessl. I want to be able to start the read-a-thon off with a brand new book. I am absolutely loving Night Film and can wait to see what happens. It definitely has a dark eerie vibe perfect for the season. It is also the longest book I have read in awhile. I have been crazy busy with work and haven’t had much time to dedicate to reading but its my goal to finish it this weekend. 120 pages left! I haven’t exactly decided which book I am going to pick up first for the read-a-thon, but I am thinking Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake. I have the sequel to this book and have had them forever so it would be a good place to start! I am trying to get some reading in and work on some posts before I get deployed through work to assist on the disasters. I could be gone for over a month and that will put me so behind on my reading goal.

Friday Reads | Rainy Weekend Edition

downthebookhole

All it has done all week long is rained. It looks like its going to be raining and storming all weekend long as well. The perfect solution to a rainy weekend is curling up and reading a good book, snuggling with the kittens and drinking some coffee. I’ve been fighting a pretty severe headache the past couple of days and I really hope that it will go away so I can get some serious reading done. There are so many books I want to read this month that are perfect October reads. The books I am currently reading are Night Film by Marisha Pessl and Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury. I am almost half way into Night Film and I am greatly enjoying it.  It is definitely a captivating mystery and has me hooked. I am also listening to Something Wicked on audiobook. It is my first Bradbury and I am interested to see where the story goes.
