A Small Intermezzo…

Thursday is the day I usually post on Irresponsible Cactus. Just a few weeks ago I talked about how I manage two blogs at the same time; and right now is one of those times where real life is just so terribly busy that it’s too much to keep up with everything. So instead of doing a lengthy post, I thought I’d just share some updates.

Currently working on: I have to classes and a thesis to complete until I graduate. One class is not that much work, one class is a ton of work, and my thesis is a beast I have yet to tame. Only nine weeks left until deadline. Eesh.

Currently looking forward to: Vacatioooon! I can’t wait for summer holiday. I will read all the books and won’t do anything academic at all.

Currently reading: The High Druid’s Blade by Terry Brooks. I haven’t been reading much lately (for obvious reasons)

Currently playing: Hearthstone and World of Warcraft. At a LAN I was at last week I renewed my WoW subscription. Although it’s an easy game to get lost in, it’s also fantastic for relaxing. Heartstone is an ideal work break. You can easily stop after one or two or three games, depending on how much time you have

Currently listening: The Thirteenth Step by A Perfect Circle. Such a fantastic album; I love this kind of music when I’m doing any school-related writing.

That’s basically what has been going on in my life! In case you haven’t seen yet, I posted a very fun post about how reading is like falling in love over at Nyx Book Reviews yesterday. Hope you all have a great week!


Love for Books Readathon

I haven’t done one of these in a while! The Love for Books readathon is hosted by Jessi from Novel Heartbeat. I’m really in the mood for a readathon. Will update this post with goals and books on the 8th!



Because I’ll be abroad for two days, I probably can’t read all that much this week. My goals are therefore pretty conservative:

  • Finish two books Done!
  • Visit at least five other blogs participating in the readathon Done!

Monday: Today’s been quite busy preparing for going to Bruges tomorrow, but I still managed to finish Journey to the Centre of the Earth. I really enjoyed it.

Tuesday & Wednesday: Travelling! Since we travelled by train, I could read quite a bit. I read the entirety of Made You Up. I thought I was super late getting to this ARC, but I found out it’s actually coming out in May! Go me 😀

Thursday: I got started in Lover Enshrined by J.R. Ward, one of my favourite writers ever. It’s fantastic so far, and I managed to read 80 pages.

Friday: Another 180 pages read in Lover Enshrined. These Black Dagger Brotherhood books are so addicting! And very easy to read.

Saturday: Managed 120 more pages in the Ward book, in between working on my thesis. I still have about two hundred more to go, so I’m not sure whether I’ll manage to finish it during the readathon, but I’ll give it a shot!
