This post is an opportunity to recap the past week on my blog and in my personal life. It’s also a chance to set up some goals for the upcoming week and share the music/films/TV shows/podcasts that I’ve loved this week.
It was another week where I didn’t do anything other than work. I couldn’t go into university on Thursday or Friday because the UCU are striking over pensions and pay. You’ll never catch me crossing a picket line and I support the strike wholeheartedly. Plus, it means I get to avoid both of my supervisors for the next 5-ish weeks and that’s always a good thing. I’m a terrible student!
- Book Adaptations I Love
- The Secret Life of a Book Blogger Tag
- Shelf Control #4 – Far From the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy
- Book Review: Meditations by Marcus Aurelius
- Book Review: The Road Through the Wall by Shirley Jackson
- Shakespeare Saturdays: Richard III
Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie – I tried not to expect too much from this book even though it is Christie’s most famous book. I didn’t want to set myself up for disappointment. Saying that, I really enjoyed reading it and I can see why so many people love it. I can now allow myself to watch the recent adaptation. Does 2017 count as recent? I mean, it is the most recent adaptation of the book so I’m going to say yes.
Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami – I really need to stop starting books late on a Saturday night. It’s an issue. I’m only a few pages into this so I don’t really have an opinion but I loved the opening and I’m really enjoying Murakami’s writing style so far. I’m excited to read more and hopefully, I’ll finish it within the next couple of days.
I’m reading this book as part of the Japanese Literature Challenge.
Dystopia: The Tree of Language by Dreamcatcher – This is a great album and I was so excited for it because it’s Dreamcatcher’s first full album. Scream is a great title track and I love the vibe of the MV. Dreamcatcher is so unique in K-Pop they are, without a doubt, my favourite girl group.
Map of the Soul: 7 by BTS – I got my hands on this on Friday, like almost every other ARMY out there, and it’s just a wonderful album. I can’t even pick a favourite song (although Shadow, UGH!, Moon, Filter, and Respect are contenders) and I will be listening to this album on repeat for the rest of my life.
(I should probably just rename this section K-Pop I’m Loving This Week because that’s all I ever seem to talk about.)
