A biweekly post updated every other Wednesday detailing my current reading projects and what new titles I’ve added to my to-read list.  Title links go to Goodreads, and if you have an account there feel free to friend me!  I’d love to see what you’re reading and/or planning to read.

I’ve renewed this once and I have one more before I have to return it.  I plan to purchase this book anyway, probably along with it’s sequel.  The more I read the sadder I am that it was never made into a movie or rather series.  I’m already thinking of my dream cast.  Maybe Emilia Clarke for Moon/Arienrhod, but that could just be because she’s done the silver-blonde thing before with Danaerys, so I’m just stuck on that.  Obviously, the same actress would play the two characters since Moon is a clone of the queen (it’s in the blurb so it’s not a spoiler), though I suppose if you found two similar looking people or twins that would work, too.  I haven’t hashed everything out yet lol.

Title: As You Like It
Author: William Shakespeare
Date Added: March 6, 2018
Date Started: September 3, 2020

Cover of As You Like It by William ShakespeareMedia: eBook/Kindle

Was hoping to be further along with this, but two scenes read is better than none.

Cover of The Luster of Lost Things by Sophie Chen KellerMedia: Paperback

Now Walter has to play a chess game to regain his missing page.  I’m not sure if he has to win, but just playing is hard enough (I suck at chess…)

Title: Gods and Myths of Northern Europe
Author: Hilda Roderick Ellis Davidson
Date Added: September 21, 2017
Date Started: May 1, 2020

Cover of Gods and Myths of Northern Europe by Hilda Roderick Ellis DavidsonMedia: Paperback
Progress: 66%

I’d like to think I’m closer to the end of this than I’m thinking, because there’s a lot of back padding (appendices and acknowledgements), so the percentage is a bit undercut.  I’m at the second to last chapter about the more enigmatic gods (Loki is coming up soon!), and the final chapter is about the end of the world, which, frankly, cannot come soon enough.


I’m currently listening to this piece by Vivaldi because sometimes I’m fancy.  My husband was watching something on his phone and I heard operatic music, so I asked what it was.  He started describing the scene from the movie and I’m just like “Yeah, I just care about the song” lol, but he mentioned the movie was Spectre, and, well, Google is my BFF.  

Anyway, I’m tired AF and near burned out so I’m going to eat dinner and watch some cartoons.
