Happy Veterans Day!
First and foremost, I want to wish everyone a Happy Veterans Day! Thank you to all of the veterans out there that have served. Your sacrifices are never forgotten, and today we celebrate you.
So it’s a very chilly Saturday here, so staying indoors and in my comfy bed is imperative for me right now. So I decided to go over my Goodreads account to pass some time! If you haven’t seen my Book Challenge on my sidebar, I recently completed my Goodreads Reading Challenge this year and have a serious question…
Should I Adjust My Goodreads Reading Challenge?
I chose to read a total of 50 books this year. It’s my first year setting a goal on Goodreads, so I really had no idea where to start with it. I figured 50 sounded like a good number, so I went with it. Obviously, it’s only midway through November, and I still have a huge stack of books to get to before the end of the year. So now I’m curious – should I adjust that number and make it a little higher? Or should I just leave it be and try for a much higher number next year?
I know. It sounds like a stupid question, but I’m just wondering what other people choose to do. I never thought I would get through 50 books this year, but getting a library card really pushed me to read more!
So I’ve been quite bored in recent weeks. My boyfriend has left Puerto Rico for the sandy beaches of St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands. It’s going on three weeks since he left, and I really haven’t done much except blog and read, then repeat! Which is fine with me, but I’m realizing I can’t pine away at home waiting for him to return. I planned on making the most of my time this week, but then I got a sinus infection! I just can’t win. So I’ve been confined to my bed with books and tea for most of the week, which is fine by me!
TV Shows I’m Enjoying
I’ve been steadily watching Stranger Things season 2. I didn’t want to binge-watch the whole season then be left waiting a whole year for a new season, so I’ve been trying to do one to two episodes a week. I plan on watching episode 4 later tonight, and I’m excited to keep going! It’s so hard to just not watch the whole thing in one sitting, but I love that I’m slowly digesting each episode. The season is getting really interesting, and I LOVED the Halloween episode where the four boys dressed up as Ghostbusters! How much more 80s can this show get?!
The Walking Dead has been fairly action-packed so far this season, but I’m still not loving the vibe of the show. It’s typical for the beginning of the seasons to be a little slow before they pick up, but I’m just not sure I love it yet. I guess I’m just waiting for the other shoe to drop…
Vikings will be picking up in about two weeks on History Channel. This is one of my favorite shows, and I’m looking forward to seeing what happens now that a familiar face is missing! (No spoilers here!!) Lagertha is obviously my favorite character, so I hope she makes it through this season!
Any advice on my Goodreads Reading Challenge? How’s life going for you? What are you currently obsessed with on television? Feel free to leave me a comment below!
