It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? a place to meet up and share what you have been, and are about to be reading over the week. It’s a great post to organise yourself. It’s an opportunity to visit and comment and er… add to your groaning TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started on J Kaye’s blog and then was hosted by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at The Book Date.
Hello beautiful bookish people!
Its been another humid week and I can’t wait for the weather to get cooler! Its a shame that we haven’t had a single decent rainfall this season – only short spurts of 10-15 minutes that simply hike the humidity and do nothing to beat the heat.
I started watching the second season of Umbrella Academy this week and I AM OBSESSED! I did not start it sooner as the first season was good, but not mind-blowing. But 15 minutes into the second season and I WAS BLOWN AWAY!
What are you all reading and watching currently? Let me know in comments below.
