Have you seen this? It’s GOLD!!!! I’m so super excited for this series to begin, I think I’ll save November 20, oh yeah, I’ll stay home, maybe bing watch the hell out of this… take a look 😉 !
TV season has started again!!! Hurrayyyy! I’ve honestly had such a crazy couple of weeks that I still haven’t cathed up to anything that came out – I still have a few shows behind from last season… ups! 😳
Either way, I wanted to share with you what I’ll be watching this year, just like I did last year around this time (here).
I still have to catch up to a lot of shows before this becomes a regular schedule, but I’ll try my best.
Are you guys watching any of these? Which show are you most excited about? I’m pretty psyched about the return of Marvel’s Agent Carter 😀 .
Hello people, I’m back from Portugal. After a crazy crazy week at home, I finally arrived to Barcelona yesterday morning (and at my house roughly 2h30m later… I have public transportation sometimes).
It was a SUPER CRAZY WEEK!! I’ll resume it for you, just because… I got there Friday night…
» Saturday I had a full day celebration at a friend’s house, to celebrate her birthday and PhD. After a day of eating and playing games, I finally got home at around 1 a.m.
» Sunday my brother picked me up at 9.30 a.m to go to the supermarket, then we went to his new house, looked around a bit, he showed me his 65′ and 55′ new TVs and played some PES, and then we had family lunch at our grandmother’s. After that, me, him and his wife went to a shopping mall, where he then left us and we went to IKEA next. We left IKEA completely drained at 10 p.m. and went to have a soup at another shopping mall… isn’t it great that things are open until 11p.m.?! After I had a freakout moment because I saw Throne of Glass in Portuguese, I went home.
– By now I’d been home for 2 whole days and had seen my dad a great amount of 1 hr on the day I arrived! –
» Monday I decided to sleep in a little… that was until my sister called me (and woke me up), to announce that she and her husband were arriving at Lisbon and if I wanted to have lunch with them. My answer was yes (because you never say no to dining out with your siblings, right?). SEAFOOD!!!! 😀 My bro and sis-in-law joined us as well, and then we (again) went to my brother’s new house. It was time to start washing the linens and stuff, and I spent the day assembling the kitchen diner table and the chairs… bless IKEA. On a bright note, I managed to get away and have diner with my dad 😉
» Tuesday I was able to stay at home a bit. I had to work on some stuff for my advisor, so that worked out well. And after 2 days of being stuck in the same page of Queen of Shadows, I was able to move up a few chapters (not many though). My BFF then went to get me and we made our usual route to some starbucks, a few shops, diner and a movie. 😀 (and then staying talking until past 2a.m. – I’m in serious need of some sleep).
» My plan for Wednesday was to relax all day and read, nothing more. I almost managed doing just that… But my sis called to let me know she would be picking me up soon… I said no, she said yes, she won! So, again, bro’s home – it’s a really nice house – we had a snack, we went to my grandmother’s, then to see a friend, then back to his house, we had diner at 11 p.m. and me and my sister-in-law’s sister stayed until 2a.m. playing Dance Central on the X-Box, while the men were upstairs with their PES.
» Thursday was a good day! I made progress on Queen of Shadows! I read and watched a bit of TV, relaxed, managed to actually read some blog posts that I had been accumulating, and then me and my BFF went to have coffee with a friend of ours that we hadn’t seen in awhile.
– Are you tired yet? –
» Friday I went (guess…), yeah, bro’s house. They went to deliver furniture, mainly the couch and dining table – very important – then we had lunch, me and sis went to starbucks, pharmacy, grandmother’s house. Then we had a family diner. My nephew arrived from the south of Portugal. After diner we all went to my brother’s house. Me and my BFF finally left past 1a.m. and I was super tired by then.
» Saturday (it’s almost over), I had a lunch with my family from my dad’s side. It’s always great to see my aunts 😀 ! By late afternoon I went shopping with my nephew and that was awesome, I had missed the kid. Then it was time to pack and sleep, because having a plane to catch at 6.45 a.m. is no joke.
My Grandmother/aunt’s house is full of these little treasures… Damn it, I was so cute when I was little…
Now, for the actual #TackleTBR Warp-Up, I didn’t do any good in this Read-a-Thon… not good at all.
- Finish my September TBR, which means reading Queen of Shadows (doing a buddy read – check the GR group 😀 ), An Infinite Number Of Parallel Universes and Finding Perfect. (Because I’ll finish The Assassin’s Blade today)
- Read at least 2 other ARCs – which ones will depend on my mood;
- Participate in 5 challenges;
- Find some new exciting blogs to follow.
WHAT I actually managed:
- I finished The Assassin’s Blade, An Infinite Number Of Parallel Universes and Finding Perfect. I’m halfway done with Queen of Shadows, which won’t surprise you if you read the section above.
- I read nothing more, unless you count some form of fanfiction which I’m now apparently addicted to.
- I participated in 2 challenges: #TACKLETBR: SEASON CHALLENGE and #TACKLETBR: BOOKISH SCAVENGER HUNT!. I really like challenges, but to be honest, the ones in this read-a-thon were mostly meh… these two were fun 🙂 .
- I hardly had time to check on the blogs that I already follow, least of all find new ones… it was a busy week.
