Mostly, I’ve been working this week. I squeezed in a library run to pick up my holds (the new Mercedes Lackey, yay!) I’ve started exercising a little bit again; hopefully this time I can sustain it better. I’ve started knitting a pair of socks for #Socktober. And my insomnia is back. But on the whole, it’s been a pretty quiet week.

What I’m Reading/Watching
Reading: I finished Scales and Sensibility (Stephanie Burgis; ARC), which is absolutely charming. I reread Island of Glass by Nora Roberts, finishing off my Guardians trilogy reread. Then I started rereading the Three Sisters Island trilogy, finishing both Dance Upon the Air and Heaven and Earth. Currently, I’m rereading the third book in that trilogy, Face the Fire. In new-to-me books, I’m reading Say Yes to the Marquess (Tessa Dare), a buddy read with Berls from Because Reading and Lillian from YABC, and The Strange Case of the Alchemist’s Daughter (Theodora Goss), which I started for the COYER “Movie Monsters” readathon but probably won’t finish in time.

Podcasts: Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me; Twenty Thousand Hertz; Smart Bitches, Trashy Podcast; 99% Invisible; The Allusionist; and Imaginary Worlds
Watching: We managed one or two episodes of Foyle’s War Season 3, but both of us have a lot of work right now, so we haven’t watched much.
