So… This is a few days late. I almost skipped it entirely; I was exhausted when I came home on Sunday so I planned on doing a weekly wrap up on Monday, but I came home exhausted again and on Tuesday as well, so here we are! Also to my fellow Dutchies: happy King’s Day! For those of you who are not Dutch: King’s Day is a national holiday in The Netherlands, celebrating our king’s birthday. So what have I been up to this past week in which I barely blogged? (read: blogged once)
I’m still reading Library of Souls. It’s finally getting interesting, but the beginning was so slow and that combined with all of my schoolwork was just a no go.
I also started Rise of the Dragons by Morgan Rice, which I downloaded for free on Amazon (not sure if it’s still free, but if it is I don’t really recommend it). So far it’s a pretty quick read, but it’s like no editor has read this book and there’s so much telling instead of showing, plus the author keeps explaining stuff he’s already explained. Like he switches POVs and once again explains the war, without adding any new information, which is really annoying.
Right now I’m in the middle of my third week of this term, which is crazy. Where has the time gone?! It feels like only yesterday when we had our introduction day. Anyway, I’m really loving this term even though it’s draining me and I barely have time to blog, write and even read. Last Friday we had English and I love our teacher. He’s hilarious and even gave us a list of puns at the end of class #blesshim
I started watching Cheese in the Trap, since it’s hard to wait for a new chapter each week (it’s based on a Webtoon). I really enjoyed it at first, but the two main leads are slowly becoming supporting characters in the second male lead/supporting character’s story, which is really weird. The main male lead is getting barely any screen time and apparently it will only get worse in the next episodes. I’m not saying I don’t like the second male lead (though he is starting to annoy me, but I’m not sure if it’s his fault or if it’s because it’s slowly becoming his story which it isn’t), I just think it’s ridiculous how much screen time he’s getting, especially since it’s often not important to the story. Him taking out the trash is irrelevant okay.
I went to YalfestNL this Sunday and it was a lot of fun! I’ll write a blogpost about it later on, after they’ve posted our pictures with the authors.
And that’s it. I do hope I’ll be able to schedule some posts today, since I have the day off.
Thankfully I had some time to read a few blogposts this week! I’m still incredibly behind and I feel so guilty about it
