Hi there, and welcome back to my blog. In this mid-month of September I’d like to introduce a brand new series in my blog called Here and Now, where I update you with things happening at the moment with me, and the world. I plan on doing this once every month, so hope you like it!
At the moment I am currently reading three books. One is a short story collection I’m slowly getting through and quite enjoying: Men Without Women by Haruki Murakami. Additionally I’m really into the detective crime thriller by Carla Kovach called Her Final Hour (34%). Since my recent readathon I haven’t continued with my audiobook of The Child Finder by Rene Denfeld, just because I am not in the mood for it.
Goodreads reading challenge update: I’m well over ahead of schedule for my goal this year, which I’m super happy about. I’m not sure if at the end of the year I’ll exceed my goal of 40 books or not, but overall I’m not rushing to read too many books.
After finishing The Office I struggled to find a series I want to start watching. I began rewatching Parks and Recreation with my boyfriend early on in the month and we immediately fell in love with it. I watched the entire series around three years ago and the second time watching it I picked up on a lot of fun and interesting things about the story and characters.
I also recently finished a BBC mini-series, Collateral which is available on Netflix. It stars Carey Mulligan as a detective in London solving one case of a dead pizza delivery man who turns out to be an immigrant. I will make a whole review of the series in the blog soon, but overall I thoroughly enjoyed it.
This month I haven’t been out the house much except for running errands. But other than browsing for jobs I’ve been developing a new hobby: crochet! I made a few amigurumis, which are basically stuffed toys made from handmade crochet, and it’s super fun, although does take some time.
As you might know I enjoy a few games in my phone and laptop here and there. Lately I’m still occasionally playing my favourite (and only game) on my Mac which is Stardew Valley. I’m at my third year in my second farm as a single-player and I have a good feeling about this farm and that it’s gonna make millions in the future. Additionally I’ve been playing multiplayer with the lovely Marina @ Books of Magic, and our shared farm is growing wonderfully.
What have you been up to, here and now in this lovely day of September? Let me know in the comments!
On another note…
This October, it will be 1 year since the start of my renewal of this blog. Though this domain has been running for over 6 years, I started book blogging and posting books, movies and travel posts only one year ago. Therefore I will be celebrating my first blogiversary by making a small form for you guys! In there you can send me your questions on me, my personal life, my blogging life, and my reading life. I will post a Q&A of all your questions in my blogiversary celebration. It will only take a couple of minutes of your time, so please go click on the picture below to fill out the form, I would really appreciate it.
