The Sunday post comes to you courtesy of Caffeinated Reviewer. Here's where many book bloggers catch up after a long week and get excited for things to come!
Hello friends! I hope everyone has had a happy and healthy reading week! It's been a very calm week for me, and that is a-okay by me! Actually, this week may have been the closest to a normal week I've experienced in months. I can't tell you how great it has felt.
What I've Done This Week
Work. The restaurant I work at has reopened for dine-in after several weeks of curbside service only. I'm very grateful to work for a business that is extremely conscientious of the safety of both staff and employees. It's created a safe and comfortable atmosphere where I can go back to my favorite part of the job-helping people! I'm so very happy to see (in very limited quantities) all of the regulars I've come to look forward to each week.
I haven't been marathoning books like I typically do. Instead, I've actually been watching a lot of Gilmore Girls. I'm not one to sit in front of the tv for hours, so this is pretty rare for me. I hardly ever watch a show from start to finish. Surprisingly, I've been binging Gilmore Girls! I'm currently in season 3 and I think I'm obsessed?! How soon can I get a Luke's mug for my kitchen? Now?! Perfect!
I'm also on day 2 of cat-sitting! I've been watching over my friend's sweet little boy for the rest of this week as well. I am LIVING for his little chest cuddles and purring! We spent all of July 4th cuddled up while watching Hamilton. Pure. Bliss.
The Week's Posts At A Glance
This past week on Food For Thought we've:
What I Read
As I mentioned, this was a lighter reading week. I did finish some books, however. I finished The Girl You Left Behind by Jojo Moyes. I also finished another James Bond novel to move along mine and my fiance's watch party by reading The Spy Who Loved Me by Ian Fleming. I also managed to get a start on Esme's Wish by Elizabeth Foster and Thunderhead by Neal Shusterman.
Moving on into this week, I have some rather ambitious goals. I intend to finish Thunderhead ASAP! (I'm borrowing it from a friend.) I then have three ARCS that archive this month to finish and review. Keep your eyes peeled for those!
Lastly, I'm going to start a long-term reading project for this year. I will be starting a reread of the Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini. I've recently read a very thought provoking article on the concept of annotating books. First of all, I highly recommend the article to every reader, because there are some great talking points-whatever you believe. Second, I thought the best place to experiment on psychically annotating my books would be on a series so near and dear to my heart. As this experiment progresses, I'll report back on my experiences! I never thought I'd be so excited to do something so taboo in the reading world. I'm going to write in my favorite books!
Thanks, as always, for visiting! I wish you the most happiness and success this week!
