My Challenge

We’re back from vacation since Saturday & unfortunately I’ve been sick since Thursday -.- It hasn’t gotten better yet & I feel like shit. That one time I take 2 weeks off….

Anyways, I still have a whole week left and as I am not really up for anything, I decided I will just read and even set myself a little challenge.

I want to finish 4 of my 5 current reads by next Sunday, the 23rd. I am pretty hype for ALL of them, so this is gonna be a lot of fun.


I started in the morning and already finished one of my books, Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik. Review is coming. I am torn. It’s one of those books I’m not really sure about.

I even got a lot of things done today, after I managed to get my ass of the couch.. Cooked some food, cleaned the house a little, entertained the animals (which means chasing the chickens out of the hothouse!) and even watched some WWE wrestling. I had their ‘Hell in a Cell’ event on in the background and although it wasn’t super bad, it’s not enough to get me invested again to watch it every week. I stick to their big events. But also mainly in the background while I have other things to do. Or I get bored. I did enjoy the tag team title match and Jeff Hardy vs Randy Orton.

I’ve never seen a dude stick a screwdriver through another dude’s earlobe in a wrestling ring before, so you get points for innovation I guess?!



Back to reading!

I have the following books to get through this week:


The Outsider / Stephen King

Oathbringer / Brandon Sanderson

The Traitor Baru Cormorant / Seth Dickinson

Black Wolves / Kate Elliott

I’ve started all of them and am halfway done with ‘Black Wolves’. I am not happy with having so many books on the go at the same time, so after that I will try to stick to just 1 or 2, like I used to.

I don’t expect to finish ‘Oathbringer’, but you never know. Maybe I get hooked!

Happy reading to you & to me this week!


  1. Well, at least you’re not totally sick at the end of your 2 weeks. I thought you were going to have to take another week for recovery 😦
    But being sick on vacation time is no fun!

    If you get 3 of the 5 read, I’d consider that a success!

  2. I’ve heard other people have mixed feelings about Spinning Silver, too, so I think you’re not alone in your thoughts about it. Still, I am curious to read it. I hope you feel better soon and get lots of reading done!
