life-update

 

Aaahhhh!!! I’ve been gone from the blog for so long! I really didn’t mean to, but like usual, one thing led to another and the next thing I knew I hadn’t posted anything in over a month! My life has been absolutely crazy over the past five months and I want to share it with all of you!

Earlier this year, my husband and I decided that we wanted to move from southern California to Las Vegas. After job searching for a few months, it just didn’t seem like it would happen like we had hoped. But then out of the blue in July, I got a call from a potential employer and before I knew it, we were packing up a moving truck and driving towards our new life in Sin City. I started my new job at the beginning of August and for the first month I was so stressed out with all the new programs I had to learn that I didn’t read at all!

Not only have I moved to a new city and started a new job, but we’re also house shopping and I hope to have more good news to share with all of you soon! Since my very stressful month, I have been able to get back to reading so I thought I would share what I’ve been reading, watching, listening to and other things I’ve been loving.

Reading: Over the past few months I’ve read A Natural History of Dragons by Marie Brennan, The Book of Speculation by Erika Swyler, The Burbon Kings by JR Ward, Pretty Girls by Karin Slaughter, Broken Monsters by Lauren Beukes and Hidden Bodies by Caroline Kepnes. I’m currently reading Assassin’s Apprentice by Robin Hobb and I’m absolutely loving it! I can’t wait to continue reading the trilogy and then reading the two following trilogies that are part of the same world.

Watching: I’ve recently been watching The Crown on Netflix. I’m loving the new show This is Us. I’ve also been watching Search Party and Good Behavior. I really want to go back and watch Gilmore Girls from the beginning so I can just continue on with the new miniseries. I just don’t seem to have the time yet because right now I’m binge watching Law and Order: SVU.

Listening: As always, I love Audible and I still have my monthly subscription. I’m currently listening to The Angel’s Share by JR Ward which is the second book in the Burbon Kings series. Afterwards, I plan on listening to The Butterfly Garden by Dot Hutchison and The Couple Next Door by Shari Lapena.

I’m so glad that I finally sat down and wrote this post. Here’s to hoping that I can do this more often and that I can keep up my good reading stats!

Audio Book Review: The Passenger by Lisa Lutz

The Passenger by Lisa Lutz is one of those books where you don’t get to know much about the main character/narrator. I would even categorize the main character as an […]
