Currently Reading/Playing

theluminousdead

 

I started reading The Luminous Dead today and am about 15% of the way through my e-ARC. I’m really enjoying it so far and loving the mixture of sci-fi with the thriller aspects. So far it hasn’t been too creepy but we’ve got the perfect combination = caving in a deep, dark cave + a mysterious employer + evidence of lots of dead bodies! I can’t wait to read more tonight.

 

the essential dykes to watch out for
I’ve recently been spending a lot more time reading and looking into classic Queer texts. We’ve had a copy of Alison Bechdel’s The Essential Dykes to Watch Out For for years but I never picked it up so thought it would be the perfect time to get acquainted with this important piece of Queer history.

Nothing has changed for the past few weeks. I am still in a Sims 4 hole but will hopefully get out of it soon so I can actually play some of my other games!

 

 

 

Recently Finished

fun home

 

Because of everything that’s been going on these past few weeks and how stressed out I’ve been, I allowed myself to go back to the library and actually pick up some new books. I read Fun Home basically in one sitting as I enjoyed it so much – it’s such a great combination of Bechdel’s witty humour, great illustrations and autobiographical narrative style.

 

more happy than not

 

More Happy Than Not was one of the books on my Down the TBR Hole March deadline. I wasn’t sure I was going to pick it up but made a split second decision when I saw it at the library. Although I really struggled with it at first due to the prominence of suicide in the story, I’m glad I persevered with this as it ended up being such a cathartic read for me.

 

heartstopper

 

Oh. My. God. This. Book. IT WAS SO GREAT. I wasn’t sure what to expect from Heartstopper as I hadn’t paid much attention to it during all the hype around it, but I enjoyed it so much. Charlie & Nick have completely stolen my heart and I can’t wait to see what the next volume brings for them. Also, the copy I got was a special signed copy from Forbidden Planet which makes me super happy!

 

 

Next Read/Play

wicked saints

 

I’m on the blog tour for Wicked Saints at the end of the month so it will be my next ARC read. I wasn’t aware of the book until I was approached by the publisher and its something a little outside of the type of book I would normally request so I’m looking forward to giving it a go! My day is the 29th March ❤

This is another book that I picked up at the library so I can read something that is both fun but also related to my studies as I haven’t read anything relevant to my research for so long. I also have the Artificial Intelligence: A Very Short Introduction to read as well which I’m really looking forward to reading.

 

 

line break

I’m honestly shocked at how much reading I managed to get done this past week as I’ve ended up having a really awful time of it. I was ill last week and got bad news yesterday about my PhD funding application being unsuccessful which has really thrown a spanner in the works. However, being ill allowed me to take a step back, rest and actually make time for my reading without feeling guilty or so stressed out I can’t concentrate!
As always let me know what you’ve been reading and/or playing this week

  1. Heartstopper is AMAZING. I fell down a rabbit hole with the webcomic, and then immediately bought the graphic novel when I was finished. I can’t wait to have a physical copy of the second volume. It’s just so good and sweet and wonderful, UGH.
