Sundays in Bed With… #MyWeeklyWrapUp

We’re back with another Sundays in Bed With… meme! This meme dares to ask you what book has been in your bed this morning and is hosted by Midnight Book Girl. Come share what book you’ve been you’ve spent time curled up reading in bed with, or which book you wish you had time to read today!

I’ve spent this Sunday wishing I were in bed reading Wicked As You Wish! I’m at about 35% and things have escalated very quickly. I had a prediction about one of the characters and the reveal just happened in the part I’m at. Although I “called it” I still found myself a little shocked but I also felt sorry for our MC. It already wasn’t the best way to learn about it and it’s a pretty big your-life-will-never-be-the-same kind of revelation! Looking forward to what happens next…

Tala Warnock has little use for magic – as a descendant of Maria Makiling, the legendary Filipina heroine, she negates spells, often by accident. But her family’s old ties to the country of Avalon (frozen, bespelled, and unreachable for almost 12 years) soon finds them guarding its last prince from those who would use his kingdom’s magic for insidious ends. And with the rise of dangerous spelltech in the Royal States of America; the appearance of the firebird, Avalon’s deadliest weapon, at her doorstep; and the re-emergence of the Snow Queen, powerful but long thought dead, who wants nothing more than to take the firebird’s magic for her own – Tala’s life is about to get even more complicated….

What are you currently reading?

This week was a bit on the meh front when it comes to work and my health but thankfully I’m feeling much better now and I’m looking forward to tackling the week ahead! Today was a super busy Sunday that involved a lot of packing and slowly moving some things (read as: MY BOOKS) as I’m moving back into my nan’s house at the end of February. The move has me feeling really nervous as I moved out two years ago because I just don’t get along with her and it’s not for a lack of trying. My nan doesn’t like my mum at all and I’m quite similar to mum in many ways, so living here was contentious to say the least.

There are many reasons why I’m moving back and I might not like it but I also understand why as nan’s getting up there in age. I just hope I don’t sink back into that extremely negative mental health space. Trying hard to remain positive right now 💪🏽

Reading & Blogging Recap

Since last week’s insane romance binge I haven’t managed to read that much this week. I did finish a chunkster though and I absolutely loved it! On the blogging front things have been pretty much the same as usual. I’ve been writing up a discussion post for the past two weeks but haven’t got around to finishing it yet and now I’m wondering if I should just scrap it 😅 But no, I think I should post it, right?!

On that note, here’s what I wrote this week ICMYI:

Review: Vengeful (Villains #2) by V.E. Schwab
Top 5 Saturday: Books about Spies
Blog Tour Review: Kingshold (Wildfire Cycle #1) by D.P. Woolliscroft
Friday Favourites: Potential Favourite Authors
First Lines Friday: 21 February
The Sunshine Blogger Award III
Review: Love Lettering by Kate Clayborn
#WWWWednesday: 19 February
#TopTenTuesday: The Dreaded Book Hangovers!
Down the TBR Hole 13
Goodreads Monday: Tweet Cute by Emma Lord

As it’s been a bit stressful I’ve taken to listening to really mellow beats to soothe my nerves. This particular tune has been hitting the number one spot on my most frequently played list lately!

How has your week been? Did you get a lot of reading done?
Hope you had a great weekend!

    1. Oh no! It’s definitely taking a lot more of my concentration than I thought it would tbh. It’s been slow moving but I also did stop reading it to start/finish another book last week. But I’m at about 70% now and I don’t want to stop reading it. It’s a very quirky read! LOL If you do give it another try, I hope that it is better for you 🙂

  1. Let’s have that discussion post! I can’t wait to see it, if you do choose to share it. Also I’m wishing for your move to go as smoothly as possible. Moving can be stressful in one way or another.

    1. I think I will! I just need to stop overthinking that it’s lame and I’m not really contributing anything new to a discussion. I know I’m not but I’m just sharing my thoughts I guess? 🤷🏻‍♀️ Haha I just need to finish writing it! And thank you, moving is DEFO stressful. Looking forward to getting it over with! Lol

      1. This is your space to share your thoughts so please please do so! There are so many people online and it’s easy to compare your own writing and thoughts and wonder if it matters to share. Totally understand you there, but I think we should say our pieces anyways! Here’s to an easy move! 💚

  2. Ooh I’d love to read a discussion post! Definitely post it 😀 Good luck with the move and your Nan, family is not always easy to get along with! Wicked as you wish sounds amazing… I can’t wait to give it a try sometime. When I’m not knee deep in work, haha. Seriously, my reading was lacking so much last week. I miss it!

    1. Thanks Joanna! It was definitely not a great time for my mental health when I was there. It just got steadily worse but I’m really trying to keep more positive this time and I’m going to distance myself as much as possible to do that 😅

    1. Change is definitely hard and going back there again is a little daunting after my first experience. But I’m really trying to keep positive! Thanks for your kind words Dedra ❤ And yes, I will be publishing the discussion post as soon as I finish writing it 😅
