This week was one of transition. After spending the last year trying to make myself into a person who carries a notebook everywhere, I am shifting to all-digital for notes/reminders/to-dos in an effort to minimize all of the junk I carry around daily. (I might write a post on this eventually but I’ve only tried it for two days so far.)
I am surprisingly bummed about the new iPhone 7’s glaring lack of a headphone jack–especially considering I cannot even upgrade my phone for another year. Do you have a stake in this heated debate?
I made a new friend at work:
Have you heard yet that I really enjoyed My Lady Jane? Here’s my Bookstagram about it:
When I got My Lady Jane in my June Royalty #owlcrate I wasn't sure what to expect beyond a possibly silly read. I'm happy to report that this historical fantasy far exceeded my expectations. Lady Jane Grey has little interest in marriage or the crown. When she end up married to Lord Gifford Dudley–an aspiring poet by night and a horse by day–she is resigned to a quiet life with a husband who may or may not be horrible. Then Jane's dear cousin dies (or does he?) setting off a hectic nine days with Jane in the throne and, eventually, on the run. This delightful romp through London's little known alternate (and true according to the authors) history is a page-turner filled with adventure, action, sweet romance, and even some magic. I loved this book to bits and plan on finding some non-fiction about the English monarchy soon (though how can it possibly compare to this book?). #booknerdigans #bookstagram #bookishfeatures #goodreads #bookstagramfeatures #instabook #instareads #igreads #booknerd #bibliophile #books #reading #currentlyreading #amreading #bookworm #bookish #bookgram
This week I’m reading The Apple Throne by Tessa Gratton and it is as amazing as I hope and as stressful as I feared. I’m in the weird in-between space where I simultaneously want to race through the rest of the story and also want to slow down and savor it. Decisions!
