I think I have too many books to read. No, I know I have too many books to read. And by read, I mean have finished by a deadline because I am in two book clubs and also clearly hate myself. I mean, obviously, I want to be in these book clubs and want to be reading the books but also, like, why do I do these things? I do not know.
Anyway, since my last post, I did some stuff:
- I had a very awesome birthday because I spent it talking to and/or spending time with almost all of my favorite people.
- I also got gift cards to order the curated book bundle from The Last Bookstore and placed my order today. I went with the “surprise me!” option on that book bundle, which, whew, talk about a hard decision to make. But I decided that I want it to be like a real present. I will let you know what I get.
- I, of course, watched Hamilton on Disney+. I also started The Baby-Sitters Club on Netflix and finished Ramy season 2 on Hulu. This was all excellent viewing, btw. Highly recommend every single one of them.
- I got my braces off, which you would think would be cause for rejoicing–and it was, mostly–except nobody told me about the retainers for life thing or that I would have to wear them constantly for the next six months (nights only after that). Also, my retainers actually made me physically ill to my stomach, so I have to go back to the orthodontist to see if maybe I can get the Hawley retainers instead of the tray retainers and maybe it’ll make a difference. Honestly, if I had it my way, I would go back in time and not get the stupid braces at all–that’s how mad this whole situation is making me.
I also posted a thing: Books About Black Teens Redux #TopTenTuesday.
And then I finished a book:
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
3.5 stars, rounding up.
This is like every self-help book you’ve ever read except in an engaging story format–these are a few of my favorite things. Super easy to read, super fast and engaging.
That book review was going to be longer, and yet.
Stay safe out there, everyone.
