My life/ books I’ve finished

I was definitely right last weekend when I said my half term week would just fly by! I’ve had my support workers come for four days where we’ve gone on bus journeys, cooked slimming world meals, gone for walks and of course I had my tarot card reading 😉 In the reading there were a lot of questions answered and I felt mostly good afterwards, and the lady has even sent me an MP3 recording of the whole thing to revisit from time to time 😀 Even though I like a lot of the things that were said, I still know I’ve got to keep trying to develop myself and become more independent as choices now can change the future… The walk my support worker and I did on Wednesday involved climbing the hills behind Dolgarrog where we got some excellent views of the Conwy valley, I wish it had been a bit less overcast, but otherwise the weather was quite decent especially for this time of year.

The pipes carry water to the power station in the village. My favourite is this photo I took on the way down as it was an almost perfect frame by the trees.

It was a fun week if not a little exhausting but I know it’s back to the usual routine on Monday :/ Despite this busy week I’ve had I’m quite surprised of how little reading I’ve done. I made it a goal to finish Terry Goodkind’s Soul of the Fire which I thought I’d speed through as I’m quite a fan of his work. I’m barely over half way through 😛 I decided to DNF last week’s read Sword and Serpent by Taylor R. Marshall, it was a book I tried so hard to connect with and be positive about but I was dragging my way through it when I realised I had way too many other books on my TBR. It just wasn’t working out. I am close to finishing my reread of Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins which has been decent, I definitely wouldn’t call it a new favourite but it is certainly very readable 🙂

I took a little trip to the local library with my support worker to find out more about this practically nonexistent library volunteering. Oh it was so hard to not take out any more books whilst I was there! But the man in charge asked us if we could scan the library course information I found in college and send it to him, so maybe that’s what I’ll be doing next academic year YES!… only maybe though..


 Books I’ve recently added to my TBR

The Fragrant ConcubineMemoirs of a CourtesanThe Priestess and the Dragon

The Fragrant Concubine by Melissa Addey 

Bought this on kindle with some of my birthday money! It seems to have quite high ratings with a lot of people liking the setting and characters. I basically go for all types of non-western fiction and when I look I seem to get a lot of historical novels set in China or Japan. I only hope more will be published in coming years!

Memoirs of a Courtesan by Mingmei Yip 

Not a lot is said about this book and there only appears to be one review for it on GR that isn’t a very positive one. It was on offer on kindle so I decided to buy it, but hope it is as intriguing as the brief description says it is.

The Priestess and the Dragon by Nicolette Andrews 

This series is another one I plan on buying for kindle one day, but with mum and dad being so uptight about what I do with my money I’m not sure when that day will be 😛 There are a lot of interesting looking non-western fantasies by this author and even though they’re not the most popular, it is the descriptions I am drawn to 🙂
