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 spent time curled up reading in bed with, or which book you wish you had time to read today!
I’ll be spending the rest of my Sunday in Bed with Cast in Firelight. I’m reading this as part of the blog tour for next week. I’m definitely curious to know what #OwnVoices readers will think of it because the author states it’s not OV but she wrote it so her children can identify with characters who look like them. It’s still ‘early days’ in the book but I am enjoying it so far and can’t wait to keep it reading it in bed tonight.
Also, I know a lot of people have commented about how Bowater’s art is basically the same everywhere and yeah, I do agree (especially when looking at this cover), but that doesn’t make this cover any less beautiful! I absolutely LOVE it and it makes me even more excited to dive back into this story! Have you read it?
What are you currently reading?
This was my first week working part-time and wow. I missed my holidays? 🤣 It was honestly overwhelming as there was a lot I needed to catch up on and since I only work Mon-Wed, it felt like there wasn’t enough time to get anything done. That said, I’m so glad that I’m part-time and even though it’s just been one week so far, I can already see how much of a difference it has made for me personally! Let’s hope that positivity in my attitude towards work continues for the rest of the year, after which I hopefully will leave this job behind (for bigger and better things)!
I’ve slowed down a lot on playing Animal Crossing but one thing that did happen this week was that I found one of my dreamies when I went villager hunting! I found him on my 10th island and I was so happy to see Lucky on the other side of the river 😍 Lucky is a zombie dog with a lazy personality and he is adorable but his house is terrifying (it’s a graveyard) 😂 I love it! Also, Kidd, my little smug goat, is definitely my spirit animal/villager. I love him so much and he’s never going anywhere!
One thing I decided to do on a whim last week was pick up a reverse harem bully romance and I have no idea why? I’d seen this cover quite a few times and my curiosity won out. I still don’t get bully romance… and I was kinda horrified when I started reading but at the same time I was still intrigued, so I kept reading… And now I’m on the third book? LOL. I won’t be counting these towards my reading goal as I’m just skimming through now cos I wanna know how this wildly unbelievable story ends! 😅 Of course, I mean absolutely no offense to those who do like this sub-genre and to each their own. 😊
On another note, last week an author commented on a two-star review I left of their book on Goodreads. While the author didn’t leave negative comments it made me feel pretty uncomfortable and I was surprised by it. It honestly kinda put me off coming online and made me feel awkward and guilty for not liking the book. It also made me feel like I need to be more careful of what I post in my reviews…? Maybe I’m just being silly but I don’t know, it made me feel pretty weird. 🙈 Have any of you dealt with something like this before? What are your thoughts? How would you react?
