Currently Reading & What I’m Reading Next // Late January 2021 ðŸ“šâ¤

So, as I’m writing this blog post I’m currently house sitting for some family friends so I’ll have their house to myself for the next couple of days. Because of that, I have a lot ot time to myself and because wok and uni hasn’t started yet, I’ll have a lot of time to read and that’s what I’m really hoping to focus on. (That, and continuing my Fast and Furious movie marathon).

I don’t usually do posts like this on my blog but I’m hoping to do mid to late updates throughout each month because I really like update posts but for some reason, never write them. 🤷‍♀️

JUST FINISHED / CURRENTLY READING

A Darker Shade of Magic (Shades of Magi…
The Bone Season (The Bone Season, #1)
The Assassin's Blade (Throne of Glass, …

A Darker Shade of Magic, The Bone Season, The Assassin’s Blade

I *just* finished A Darker Shade of Magic by V E Schwab and had mixed feelings on it, but I did enjoy it for the most part. I found the world building really interesting but the characters were all pretty lacklustre and need more fleshing out.

As for what I’m currently reading, I’m 25% of the way through my audiobook for The Bone Season and I’ve listened to the first story from The Assassin’s Blade which so far I’m really not loving but I think part of that is me not knowing the characters very well yet, and also me not being used to reading YA fantasy. I am really enjoying The Bone Season though, so that will probably be what I finish next.

MY READING PLANS FOR THE REST OF JANUARY

Bill & Ted Save the Universe
A Silent Voice, Volume 5 (A Silent Voice, #5)
Batman: The Night of the Owls
The Rig (The Rig, #1)
North and South

Bill & Ted, A Silent Voice Vol 5, Batman: Night of The Owls, The Rig, North and South

I got a few extra comics out for Graphicsathon but didn’t end up reading them all so I’m hoping to get to them throughout the week while I’m house sitting. I also have a (get ready for this…) physical novel on my tbr! I know, so unlike me… but there wasn’t an audiobook available.

WHAT I’M WATCHING

Fast & Furious Poster
WandaVision Poster

I originally wasn’t going to talk about the things I’m watching but you all know how much I love movies, so I figured why not update you all?

I’m currently making my way through the Fast and Furious franshise and I’m not gonna lie, I’m having the time of my life! 😂 Also, y’all had me prepared to love Tokyo Drift but it was terrible! It was just a bunch of late 30-year olds playing at teenagers and driving cars in empty parking lots… also, a F&F movie without Vin Diesel or Paul Walker? I don’t think so sis.

AS for tv, I’m not a big tv show watcher, but I am currently watching the weekly episodes of WandaWision on Disney+, and while I’m not *in love* with it, I think it will be worth it for the sit com nostalgia and the plot pay off for the overall season. Also, I love Elisabeth Olsen and think she’s a wonderful actress so I’m always heppy to support her!

What are you currently reading?
Are we reading any of the same books?

    1. I haven’t made much progress but I’m really enjoying it so far!

      It’s never been high on my priority either but my mother gifted me with the trilogy a few years ago so I figured I should read it! I do really like the world-building so far!

      Thank you!
