Posting Schedule Update | WWW Wednesday: March 18th, 2020

WWW Wednesday

Hi, all! I hope everyone is currently safe and healthy. So…it’s been 3 weeks since I last posted, and honestly I didn’t even realize it till I looked at the date of my last post. 😅 School has been crazy (as always) and especially overwhelming with the recent decision of my college to kick us to online classes. Luckily, this week is my spring break so I’ve been able to be in denial and hang out with my housemates but this has also resulted in me having like no motivation to do really anything fun in terms of individual activities e.g. blogging, reading, writing.

So what I’m trying to say here is… I have absolutely no clue how often I’ll be posting, if at all, for the next couple of months. I would love to get this post up today, then come back with my February wrap-up this weekend, and then a TTT next Tuesday and stay strong in my reading and blogging game during this social distancing time in the U.S.. But I don’t know how realistic that is and I don’t want to hold myself to any potentially stressful expectations.

So yeah…please don’t be surprised if I go on a hiatus or a semi-hiatus (even tho I kinda already was, lol).

Wow okay, so sorry for that long intro, let’s get into what I’ve been reading! Due to school and actually being able to pick up a fun book yesterday, I actually sorta have books to talk about!

(Also, for those of you who don’t know: WWW Wednesday is a weekly book meme hosted by Taking on a World of Words where you answer 3 ‘what’ questions about your reading.)


What did you recently finish reading?

Last week I finished reading The Fellowship of the Ring! YES, I’m finally reading The Lord of the Rings! It’s for my Tolkien & Medieval Lit class. And lol yes, my copy really does have this old cover, albeit in somewhat better condition than this image from GR. I’m really loving reading about Middle Earth (so far I’ve read The Hobbit and most of The Silmarillion) and the antics and sass of all these characters. As expected, I’m adoring the characters of Sam and Gandulf. I did find the beginning/first half to be slow, but I can’t wait to see how the story continues!


What are you currently reading?

  • The Silmarillion– STILL need to go back and finish the chapters my class skipped over.
  • The Tolkien Reader– Read a couple sections for class, and I believe we’re coming back to it again later.
  • The Unspoken Name– WHOOPS, I haven’t touched this in a month, but like…hopefully I’ll return to it soon?
  • House of Earth and Blood– I finally found the motivation to pick this up and ahhh, I’m adoring it! Yes, it’s still full of SJM’s dramatic writing and stereotypes, but it’s exactly what I need right now. I started last night around 10pm and I’m already 100+ pages in.

What do you think you’ll read next?

Honestly, I have no clue? I have a couple books from the library and lots that I own sitting on my shelf. Perhaps The Girl in Red, but also I don’t know if I could do horror right now? I also just wanna focus on my current reads. Hmmm, I’ll probably just try mood reading because I don’t wanna force myself to read anything else than I already will have to for school.

For classes tho I will be starting the next LOTR book and The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell!


How is everyone holding up? Anything I can do to help? Are you also struggling with your blogging*/reading? Read any good books recently?

Also, if you participated in WWW Wednesday this week (or have any other recent posts ya wanna share), feel free to drop the link in the comments; I would love to check it out!

*I must say though that I feel quite a bit better after finally getting around to writing a blog post and being freshly showered. 😊

    1. Awww, May, thank you so much for the support and understanding!

      And yes I did! For once I’m actually reading a SJM book shortly after its release! Honestly, finally picking it up and just letting myself being submersed in the book for a few hours at a time as been really helpful and nice. I’m almost half way through now and I really adoring it! Like I said above, it’s def got SJM’s same writing quirks (tho a lot more swearing) and character stereotypes, but it’s still such a fun, comfort read and I can’t wait to finish it (tho Ik I’ll be devastated when it’s over and I have to wait for the next one) so that being said YOU NEED TO PICK IT UP AND READ IT!! I wanna hear your thoughts on it, girl! tho no pressure of course

      Again, thanks so much! And you too–stay safe & healthy! ❤ ❤

  2. Ahhh yes! I’m glad you enjoyed Lord of the Rings, so far. And good luck with The Silmarillion. It can be quite dense, but I still say it’s worth reading. Just take a little at at time. 🙂

    1. Thank you! I think I have 5 chapters I need to go back and read, tho yeah, some of them are intimidating because they’re kinda long. And yes, I just need to tackle it chapter by chapter! 😀
