Updates from the Lair is my weekly wrap-up post that includes what happened in my real life, what I’ve been reading, my posts from the week, and what I’m thinking about reading next week (and would love your advice on!).
My loves! I’ve been a bit absent from the blog this week I’m afraid and again allowed comments to go unanswered for much longer than I’d like D:. I know you all forgive me and I appreciate it since it helps me not stress when I get home at 9pm and just want to sleep, haha. However, I also love this place and really want to keep chatting with you all, so I will try to stay caught up when I can ;-). I’m writing this at 11pm on Friday night (sitting on my exercise ball like a good invalid!) because I have a busy weekend of catching up with some friends I haven’t seen for a while and then all the grading and hopefully a bit of post writing and responding to comments! Oh and working on research proposals, research blog posts, starting some experiments and reading research papers…. There’s five days in a weekend right?
I freaking loved book one, so I decided to stop putting off Death Marked when I finished my last eARC before I was completely tired enough to fall asleep, haha. I’m already enjoying sinking back into the fast and fun writing and the cool world, this time with more magic :D. I think these couple weeks will be the weeks of reading those ARCs I was so excited about and then didn’t get to right away!
Going along with the theme of ARCs I’ve been putting off, I borrowed an ARC of Lion Heart and can’t resist anymore. I woke up at about 5 am Friday morning with insomnia from panic thinking about the upcoming surgery and was so grateful to have Lion Heart next to my bed to distract me. Scarlet’s troubles are worse than my own after all ;-). And I’ve gotten so used to her use of “were” that it is comforting to read it now, ha!
