The Weekly Recap (25): The Break That Really Wasn't A Break

Sunday, November 25, 2018

Hello, hello!

I hope everyone is doing well! Hopefully, those of you who celebrated Thanksgiving had a good time with your friends or family. I had 2 days off of school, but they were still so busy. I did not anticipate having so much work to do, but this coming week is going to be a killer, so I wanted to take the time to prepare for it, so I won't feel too overwhelmed. I tried to take some breaks, but it was hard. I did cook myself a nice meal in the spirit of all the eating Americans do on Thanksgiving. I'm not too fond of the typical Thanksgiving food, so I instead made a lasagna. I made everything from scratch, including the sauce and the Bechamel, and OMG, best lasagna I have ever eaten! I was so proud of it, I sent pictures to everyone in my contacts - haha!

It's been so cold too lately, so I was cooped inside most of the time. I only did a grocery run and then went to a newly opened Panda Express - I am trash for their food, so I am very excited they opened one close to where I get groceries. I did go to dinner with a friend last night, so at least there is that!

Let's get to my reading updates!
Week In Reading
Bad for the Boss (Just for Him, #1) Christmas Catch The Girl He Used to Know Magic Rises (Kate Daniels, #6)

It's been a sad reading week. I only read 3 books, and 2 of them I ended up just disliking. Bad for the Boss was at least fun. I was annoyed with the hero from Christmas Catch and The Girl He Used to Know used a major event that occurred in real life as a plot trope and I thought that was super cheap and disrespectful. I decided to pick up Magic Rises as my next read as I know Ilona Andrews would never disappoint me. I don't know what it is with me lately, but I feel like I have no motivation when it comes to reading. I think this December reading and blogging break will be good for me.
