Tell Me Tuesday #95

Hosted by La La in the Library

I am feeling very blah lately, which translates directly into everything I do. I can’t tell you what I’ve been doing really, because I think it’s mostly been just mindlessly browsing Instagram and Facebook. I did a small amount of reading done but compared to how I read when I am normal it’s basically almost nothing.

Last

The Poet X

  • The Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo – Goodreads  – This was so good! I have lots of feelings, all of them hard to summarize but I can say that I recommend it wholeheartedly. It perfectly captures the struggle of growing up struggling to fit into molds placed before you and so so much more. It’s a fairly quick read too since it is written in verse.

Now

  • The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson – Goodreads  – Still no progress….
  • The Forever War by Joe Haldeman – Goodreads – I have read a bit of this one though and I am enjoying it, despite some of the issues I have with it. It has really short chapters too, so it’s perfect for my waning concentration.

Other Updates

D&D – We have a second game going with some friends of ours. It almost fell through entirely (no comment…) but it looks like we might be able to save it with a change in DM. It’s everyone’s, but the boyfriend and I, first time playing D&D so it should be fun if we can really get it underway.

Our home game is still going strong though. We spend our game nights venting about the week, catching up on video game news, and then when that’s exhausted we settle in and become other people for a while. It’s one of my favorite nights of the week.

Sunday Post #335

The Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

It’s been such a busy week for me, full of ups and downs. Things are going well at the library and I’ve been given my own section of shelves to keep stocked and cleaned. I have the entire 600’s section of the nonfiction, which is given me a ton of time to really check out all the topics crammed in there. I didn’t mention this in the previous two weekly updates because I needed some time to process it and be at peace with it, but my grandfather has passed away. I am okay, though I am sad I didn’t get a chance to go out and see him one last time. It’s been a few weeks of quiet reflection for me, but it has also been a bit of a stressful one. Stress = money spending…so I have a lot of new books and new dice (for those who follow my instagram you can see those there).

I also spent some time with my niece this weekend. We ‘cooked’ and I was forced to ‘drink’ several cups of cream corn. She’s also decided on what she’s going to call me, which is oddly enough the same thing my younger cousins called me at her age. They each came up with it on their own *shrugs* I am Weesha (My middle name is Alyse)
