Weekly Update | January 4-10, 2021

Good morning everyone! I hope you’re all doing well. Today I’m going to be talking about how I did this week with reading and watching!

I hope you all enjoy! Let me know what you’ve been reading or watching.

Let’s do this!


So, this is going to be a super quick post again. I didn’t really do much reading or watching this week because I was just playing video games. Are we surprised? Nope!

When it comes to my reading, I did continue on with The Hate U Give but I didn’t finish it yet. I am on pages 201 and plan on reading more tonight (it’s currently Sunday night) so I’m sure I’ll be a bit further by the time midnight hits.

But I do plan on finishing THUG on Monday because I really need to get going on some audiobooks. I have quite a few books I want to get through and I have an entire diamond painting I need to finish before the 19th. So I will be listening to audiobooks as much as I can. Audiobooks and watching shows.


Speaking of, I did make progress in Grey’s Anatomy. I am currently on season 16 and I do plan on finishing that early on in the week this week. Like I said, I have a lot of diamond painting I need to get done.

Listen, Grey’s Anatomy is super dramatic, over the top dramatic, but I love it. And, no spoilers, but there’s an episode in season 16 that have me DYING in all the ways. It had two actresses from my favorite TV show of all time and they were just like they were in the TV show! It was so hilarious and heartbreaking.

But I love Grey’s and I know it’s not for everyone. But it’s extra dramatic and the crazier it sounds when explaining it, the better it is for me.

Another thing I mentioned wanting to do was start the Korean drama, Hospital Playlist and I did! I am on episode 2, but if you watch K-dramas, then you know they are really long episodes. So I’m almost done with episode 2 but I had to stop because I was falling asleep!

But I’m enjoying it. It’s definitely a completely different vibe than Grey’s so I’m going to wait until I’m done with that before I get back into Hospital Playlist.

What I’d Like to Do This Week (January 11-17)

The main thing I want to focus on is finishing The Hate U Give. Then I’ll work on Grey’s Anatomy and continue the diamond painting. Once I’m caught up with that, I will start listening to A Reaper at the Gates then move right into A Sky Beyond the Storm. Both of those are Sabaa Tahir and I have about 3-4 days to finish them. I may end up listening to them before I get back into Grey’s.

So I broke this down pretty well. I want to finish The Hate U Give on Monday. Then I can get into the other two audiobooks. Altogether, I have about 30 hours. So I’ll hopefully be able to break it up pretty well. Usually I start audiobooks on 1.5x or 1.8x speed then bump it up to 2x after a little bit.

So I fully believe that finishing these 3 books is 100% doable for me. And the thing is, I’ve been wanting to read, but anytime I sit down to, I just can’t bring myself to. So hopefully finishing a book will get me back into the flow of reading again.

As for my next physical read, it will definitely be Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff.


And that’s going to be it for this one! I do hope you all enjoyed and you comment below with what you’re currently reading.

Thank you all so much for joining me and I’ll see you all in the next one!

If you're an indie author, feel free to email me to see if I'm interested in your novel (whether it's already published or not). I mainly read romance, YA fantasy, and YA contemporary. When emailing, please provide a copy of the novel or a link to where I can find it. For business inquires, email me at: acourtofbooksandlove@gmail.com
