Week in Review (11)


A lot has happened in a week. The coronavirus is in Canada now. As of this morning, we are at over 200 cases. It's not in my province yet, but it is just a matter of time. My work is still open. We only left the house this weekend to go to the grocery store. I still need to eat for work, so I had to get some perishables. The stores were pretty picked over. I have been finding it hard to disconnect from it all. I usually do not watch the news or anything, but it's all anyone is talking about everywhere. So, not a lot of reading going on at the moment!


I rolled Young Adult Fantasy and listened to A Court of Thorns and Roses on audio.

I rolled Amazon, my train stations are where I bought the book from, and I read Empire of Sand.

Weekly Reading

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas ~ I have tired to read Maas in the past, but just was not able to connect with her. Then, Audible had this series on sale and I decided to give the audios a try. It worked out well because I enjoyed this and look forward to reading the sequel. I had never tried to read this series by her before, just her other one, but it could be that she is one that I enjoy the audios, but would have disliked reading the book. We will see what I think of the sequels!

Empire of Sand by Tasha Suri ~ I am sad. This book is why my reading was so slow this month. It was a slow book and I wasn't sure if I even liked it. The people that inspired me to read this were giving it 5 out of 5 stars, so I think I set myself too high of expectations for it. It mostly just meant it took me a while to get into it, but then when I did, I did end up enjoying it and binged the rest. And, I plan to read the companion novel. I am still not sure what I would rate it if I did rate it. I think it is one that I will have to let settle for a while.

New Additions

A Big Ship at the Edge of the Universe by Alex White (gift card)


  1. It's crazy times isn't it? I've been hooked on the news and that is probably not a good thing. I need to disconnect a bit more. Stay safe!

  2. We had the first confirmed case in our state this week so all the schools are closed and whatnot. It really doesn't affect us too much and I'm not sad to have an excuse to stay home though of course I wish it was for different reasons. Have a great week!

  3. It is very hard to disconnect at the moment, and hard to not start feeling anxious!
