For this week’s Caturday Reads, I have six books total to share. Three of which I have begun, and the other three that I hope to read and finish by next weekend! Half of them are library loot titles and the other half is from my own personal collection that I’ve been meaning to get through more productively this year. Thus far, I have broken even with my progress.
Of course, lengthy, draining weeks demand self-care on the weekends! Since this shall be my last couple days of freedom before a new work project begins and monopolises my time and brain juice, I want to spend it all in Potato Mode. Spooky books and spooky films and spooky Shinobi stalking my kitchen in the middle of the night, convincing me that I’m about to be murdered by some creepy arse clown from outer space
Since I have been bookishly ravished, this weekend I decided to jump into sci-fi and fantasy novellas that’ve been on my TBR since the beginning of last year. I’m hoping the shorter lengths will allow me to get through a tiny tower of them, which will then
With that I welcome you to my last Caturday Reads post for 2021! The goal for the rest of December and for January is to dive into wintery fantasy and folklore fiction type novels, especially the ones I wanted to get through this year, but simply didn’t have the time nor energy to do so yet.
November is usually my favourite time to read historical fiction, so I made sure to snag a couple of those. Additionally, after watching a recent film of one of my favourite books of all time…ever, I just had to pick up the series for a re-visit. The last title rounding off my list is an urban fantasy pick
I don’t have a lot of homework this weekend, so I’m hoping to curl up on the couch in the cat room, where I’m going to pick through a couple of books and watch some Indian films. I still have a few that I’m reading from my previous weekend post
Reading-wise, I’m turning to owned books from my personal library. One is a re-read of a favourite cyberpunk novel, which I have previously reviewed here on BiblioNyan. The other two are books I’ve owned for about six months to a year, and they felt like they’d be a good fit to pick at in-between classes and homework to-dos.
With the new Uni semester looming around the corner, I’ve decided to spend the next two to three weeks doing nothing but reading and writing, as well as playing as many video games in my Steam library as possible. As soon as the ON switch for the semester hits, I know I’ll be out of fresh free-time.
All of the books that I had intended to read a couple weeks ago ended up falling through because I simply didn’t have the attention span or time to devote to them. While I’m saddened by it, I’m also glad that I realised I had to put reading aside to just let Life do its thing, otherwise I may have fallen into an atrocious reading rut (my second biggest nemesis after spiders). Since things have been super hefty with respect to my emotional and mental well-being, I turned to chill, cosy books to help me unwind
My reading inclinations have been all over the place recently and as such, I’ve got a nice bit of variety to the things that I shall be diving into over the next couple of days and then possibly going into the upcoming week ahead, which includes a bit of horror, thriller, and non-fiction, along with a decent sized pile of Batman comics.
Recently, I finished reading a book on female serial killers called Lady Killers: Deadly Women Throughout History by Tori Telfer and it has me craving true crime narratives like a catnip addict. In addition to my nonfiction treats, I also have a science-fiction book or two to help break the tension and heaviness of the dreary and decrepit. One of these sci-fi titles is marketed as a Fungalpunk trilogy
I really hope to be able to spend the next two days lazing around in bed because my body and my mind really need to catch up on recuperation. Aside from napping with feline folx, the activities will be limited to things that won’t require me to physically leave said bed if possible, meaning animu watching and reading, yay!
This weekend, I’m continuing my comfort reading of one of my favourite dark fantasy, sword and sorcery serials of all-time and I’m also hoping to dive into a genre that I’ve been craving for the better part of two weeks, sci-fi horror! Additionally, I’ve got a decent stack of comics to entertain me if my ADHD with novels gets to be a bit much, of which I shared my most-anticipated pick.
Good afternoon, Chums. I know it’s been quite a while since my last post (at least it sure as hell feels that way), and the truth is that I’ve had a lot going on, which I plan on discussing briefly later in the post. I’m going to break this write-up down into a couple of small sections. The first shall consist of my current reads and planned reads for the upcoming week, and the second shall be info about Azizi kitty.
There are two books on my weekend reading itinerary. One of them is a Japanese steampunk novel that has been on my TBR for over a year. My local library had a copy, so I snagged it the last time that I was here. The second book is the first novel in one of my favourite sword and sorcery trilogies of all-time, a trilogy that I love to read and re-read, especially when I’m having a difficult time dealing with real-life challenges
