Not to be overly dramatic or something, but it does feel like the start of an entirely new era already. Yesterday was my last day of work, today is my first day of pregnancy leave. It’s surreal how fast time has flown by. Simply thinking about this little wiggle being born in about two weeks – or sooner, or later; who really knows? – is ridiculously surreal.
And hard at the same time. We’re currently living in a house that.. even though it feels like a home, is no fit place to have a baby at and I’m low-key freaking out. Today’s a bad day when it comes to mental breakdowns, to be honest. I thought at least the first day would be relaxing, but instead I’m constantly confronted with all the things that have yet to happen and.. I’m not coping all that well right now?
Which pretty much means the rest of the day will be spent in bed and bath, reading, with candles and.. probably way too much chocolate but who cares. Self-care. Ignoring the mess. Ignoring the to do’s.
Anyway. I’ll get back to being me eventually!
For now, let’s take a look at what I read since last Wednesday.
As always, covers link back to the Goodreads-page, so feel free to check them out!
I finally picked up Escaping From Houdini! Honestly, I thought Fall was the perfect time to read this book – which it is – but it’s also kind of fitting with the snow storm going on outside and me being locked safely inside, haha. And, well, Ride Baby Ride / Rocky Ride is my steamy fluff for in between – and on my Kindle. You all know I love switching between those two formats anyway.
Oh, I did good! I finished those two reads I wasn’t really feeling – I should totally get a move on writing those reviews, oops – and even started and finished two others! Archenemies pretty much blew me away; loved it! Swimmer Boy was a queer fluffy read for in between but I definitely had some issues with it. Not representation-wise, but writing-wise which sucks.. It could’ve been so good..
I’m not pulling any notes from my jar anymore since tomorrow’s the last day of January and then I’m starting Fantastic February! I’ll be posting my TBR for that one tomorrow – but let’s just say I’m definitely picking up The Wicked King as soon as I’ve finished my current reads. There’ll be no stopping me!
Two new additions this time around! I felt in the mood for some fluff when I requested New Starts and Cherry Tarts at the Cosy Kettle and finally got approved for the diverse Internment by Samira Ahmed!
