Welcome once again to my end of week review of what I’ve read and watched. I hope someone is enjoying them.
Books: I have been reading Splinter in the Blood by Ashley Dyer since last week. It’s not a bad book, but I’m just not really in to it. I never feel compelled to pick it up and only read it when I’m eating lunch at work. I’ve set it aside and have started reading Sunny by Jason Reynolds. It’s good, but I liked the other track series books better. Maybe it’s me. Maybe I just need the right book, but I’ve entered a period of not really wanting to read much lately.
Television: Maybe I’m not wanting to read as much because I have so much to watch on TV. My new DVR is already at 90% full and we have entered the season of finales of the network shows. I’ve been trying to catch up on those shows while also watching Handmaid’s Tale with my family and Dear White People alone. My goal is to finish season 2 of Dear White People this week so I’m ready to start season 2 of Thirteen Reasons Why when it premieres next week. Some bad TV news – Clayne Crawford has been fired from Lethal Weapon and now FOX has to decide if they want to renew the show without him as Riggs. FOX has also canceled Brooklyn 99. These are two of my favorite shows. Network upfronts start Monday, so this blog will turn in to a TV blog soon.
Movies: I’m not sure I watched a movie this week. I think during the times we would normally watch a movie we were watching Handmaid’s Tale. If we watched a movie this week it wasn’t very memorable. I still haven’t seen Infinity War. I need to convince my family to go see it this weekend. I’m not sure how much longer I can avoid the spoilers.
So, that was my week. Hopefully, I will have more to report next week. I would like to say my light week of movies and books meant I was too busy doing other fun stuff, but I didn’t really do anything last week. I guess I just watched a lot of TV.
