While time doesn’t feel so weird anymore (alternating between flying by and dragging on and on and on), it’s once again as if I keep waiting for something.
No idea what.
As if it’s all I’m doing with my life.
I got the fourth dose of the vaccine, recovered from it, and should probably do some health check-ups. And probably will, at some point.
Other than that, it’s the usual: working, when there’s work, reading, thinking about watching some TV series but reading instead, feeling tired…
Currently reading: Cloud Cuckoo Land by Anthony Doerr. It’s our monthly read for our book club, and some parts of it are not bad, and love for books and libraries is great, but at times it feels as if the author has to tell us every little detail about the five main characters, and those details are just not that interesting. I’m not saying that this is a bad book, and I might be reading it at the wrong time; it’s just… Well, it’s just that I keep finding excuses to do something else instead of reading.
Recently read: Lonely Castle in the Mirror by Mizuki Tsujimura (it reminded me of animes with hundreds of episodes and not much happening, but by the end, it turned out to be beautiful), The Cat Who Saved Books by Sosuke Natsukava (a sweet YA book about a hikikomori and a talking cat saving books), Empire of the Vampire by Jay Kristoff (lots of fun on these seven hundred pages; think an interview with a vampire hunter instead of an interview with a vampire, and a lot of wickedness added), The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires by Grady Hendrix (I thought it was going to be a horror comedy about Southern housewives having to fight a vampire, and there was that, too, but it was also a lot more serious and bleak than I expected), Seven of Infinities by Aliette de Bodard (Xuya Universe, a scholar and a mindship playing detectives when a dead body is found in the scholar’s student’s room, and both the scholar and the mindship are hiding a lot about themselves), and A Study in Honor by Claire O’Dell (Holmes and Watson as queer black women in the near future Washington, and the future isn’t exactly a nice one).
All were pretty good.
Currently watching: nothing. I keep planning to watch one series or another, and then read instead.
Currently working on: work, when there’s any. And there might have been more if I wasn’t unavailable while recovering from the vaccine, but hey, health first. Or at least that’s what people say should come first. I should be writing my own stuff, too, but once again, I’m not.
Yet another exciting month… Not.
See ya next time! If nothing else, there will be more books to talk about. And hopefully another cat picture.
