It’s a new day and it’s a new week of the Marvel-A-Thon! Last night I ended up only getting to page 30 of Bad Romance but so far I am loving it. I then decided to do something completely out of my norm, and watched The Bourne Identity, which as it turns out, I really enjoyed. So, last night I also picked up the book to see if I could keep that good luck going, and so far I’m roughly 5 chapters in (I’m listening on audio) and I’m really liking it.
I have had a pretty meh day so far, mostly I’ve just been really deflated and low on energy so I haven’t really done anything of substance. The only good thing I can say that I’ve done is that I’m pretty much halfway through The Bourne Identity, though I am really questioning why I thought it would be a good idea to read an almost 600-page book in a readathon???
I haven’t read anything so far today and I’m only roughly 9/22 hours into Bourne. But, I think I’m just going to spend my day trying to control my anxiety and blogging since I’ve missed so much time due to wifi-deprivation (it’s a thing, right?)
So far today I’ve been decently productive. I’ve baked some cookies, listened to some more of Bourne, made tonight’s dinner and outlined a blog post or two.
I am hoping to finish Bourne tonight, or at least get really close to the end. I didn’t get much of anything done yesterday, but I did plan my uni classes which was pretty intense for me. I will be starting Uni in July so no pressure but I am feeling pretty pressured. Yesterday I was pretty anxious so all I really did was sort out some Uni stuff and watch Tangled (because I’m an adult and an amateur Disney fan).
I finally finished The Bourne Identity! Maybe now I can finally pick up a new book!
What even is reading. Ugh, I did everything except pick up a book today. Baking? Check. Pasta? Check. All the cooking? Check. Wash dog? Check.
I am a terrible blogger it’s official. I have no blogging mojo and no will to read. Although, I do have a review scheduled for Final Draft in a couple of days so I think I’ll try to chill and start reading the book. Wish me luck (send help).
So, Final Draft was a bust. I got roughly 32% of the way in before putting it down and just never picking it back up. Im 99.6% sure I’m in a reading slump but I’m trying to push through it.
I ended up seeing The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society at the cinemas with my mum and LOVING IT so I picked the book up at the shop while I was there and I’m really hoping to love it just as much as every else. *fingers and toes crossed*
I am feeling thoroughly underwhelmed by this week. I loved week one but so far I have only managed to read one more book and to then get myself into a reading slump. I am really loving Guernsey though, so I’m hoping to finish it today and then to hopefully keep my momentum going with a comic later tonight. Either way, a slump is a slump and hopefully, next week will be more successful.
I just finished Guernsey and I loved it! I will say that I loved the movie just a little bit more, but it was a wonderful book either way! I don’t think this fits any challenges, but I’m glad I read it nonetheless. I’m going to bed now because Winter exhausts me but, I am hoping to pick up a comic or two tomorrow to hopefully kick my *ss into gear with phase 2!
