Recap of books and life
Long time no see! The past weeks have been very positive and I have been feeling quite giddy and giggly in moods as of recently and next week is my last week before I go to Thailand with my family, oh it has come so fast! 😀 Recently I have had a check up with my doctors about my mental health medication (mostly antidepressants that I have been on for years) and I have told her that the tablets have slowly ran out in the past recent weeks and so far I am feeling my usual self. She has more or less taken me off the pills only telling me to come back to her if I start to feel very bad but so far I have felt great while doing a lot of reading and getting a lot more inspiration for my own imaginations and doing a lot of exercise too. In slimming world this week I managed to lose 4 pounds and am close to my 4 and a half stone award YASS! I will also admit that I don’t really feel as hungry as I used to and have not been eating as much food as I did in the past which is nothing to complain about! 😉
College has been fun and good though there is always the niggling paranoia about the bus journey on the way back with my bus pass that I’ve mentioned before though there is no point worrying as my parents have said I could call them if there are any problems though I hope things really won’t come to that. I also have a bit of a worry in terms of my library books and their due dates from the public library. Basically they have renewed all my books to the second of January and that is after I come home from Thailand though it is the first day they open in the new year and there are a few books I have out that are inter library loans which means they come from another library system far from here. With these books I cannot renew them online, I have to go to the library to renew them and it is quite complicated for the library too as they have to ask for permission from the branch who lended them out and I did try to get a later date for all my books but the library staff didn’t give me one saying I can come in on the first day they open as that is a lot of time to get some reading done. I know I will have a lot of books finished by that date, I just worry that there will be a problem arising where I can’t get to the library on the second for example weather conditions like flooding (quite common in my area) or there is no one available to take me but my support workers have told me the library staff in my area are really understanding and I can always give the library a ring to explain my situation if it comes to that. Either way I have been told there is no point worrying about it now.
My thoughts mostly these days are my characters, finishing more books and my support workers as I feel at the moment I’m getting on very well with them and am learning new things. I have finished at last Entwined and The Night Itself and both turned out to be decent reads though they did have quite a bit of flaws. I have bought a few more salwar suits for my own passion with ethnic clothes and now for what feels like the first time in a while I don’t feel the need to go looking for more clothes. I hope to remain positive throughout the winter especially after I come home from my trip as I have earlier this year been really depressed for a multiple of reasons so mostly I just hope to see the positives and think about my characters as well as immerse myself in more reading.
Books I’ve recently added to my TBR
Three Parts Dead by Max Gladstone
An original sounding fantasy which has potential to explore many themes and have a gripping story to go along. There seem quite a few books in this series so I don’t know when I’ll start this.
Anansi Boys by Neil Gaiman
So many books I have been wanting to read by this author! This one has caught my attention because others describe it as mythological and there isn’t a lot said about the synopsis but I will get to this book one day.
The Death Code by Lindsay Cummings
The first book in this series was average to say the least though the ending did leave a lot set up for the sequel. I’m not exactly in a hurry to read this but I will pick it up again when I can.
Hope you have a wonderful week! 🙂
