On the Night Table [48]: Slowly

 


I can’t even remember the last time I made a trip to the bookstore, y’all. To tell you the truth, don’t miss it that much. That doesn’t mean I’ve stopped being a book nerd. I’ve been going through my shelves and reading whatever I want. I don’t know what’s going on but the books I’ve requested from a few publishers hasn’t arrived. It’s been weeks now! Not that I’m not enjoying the careless ways with which I picked my reads but I’m wondering why none of the books are getting to my mailbox. Perhaps I keep missing out since requests are on a first come, first serve basis? Things that make you go…WTF.

Waking Gods by Sylvain Neuvel
Series: Themis Files, #2

Rating: 5/5 Stars

Bruh. This series is so awesome. If you haven’t read Sleeping Giants yet, I suggest you remedy that, stat. You know I’m not a fan of Sci-Fi but man, Mssr. Neuvel converted me. I haven’t written a review but I might re-read it again before writing one. Yes. Again. Because I read this twice already!

 

 

A Quick Bite by Lynsay Sands
Series: Argeneau, #1
Published: October 25th, 2005
Rating 3 out of 3 Stars

I wanted to get my curiousity out of the way so I decided to give this one a whirl. Unfortunately, I’m one and done. I don’t think I’ll continue. This was a long read and there’s not much action to speak of. The family of vamps is interesting, though. But not interesting enough to incite the desire to continue.

 

 

The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt
Published: October 22nd, 2013
Rating: 4 out of 5 Stars

Another long, arduous read but so worth it. The young Theo tugged at my heartstrings. The adolescent Theo had me pulling my hair. The man that Theo had become did not learn from the mistakes of his past. Annoyed as I was, The Goldfinch is worth all the accolades it had gotten since publication.

 

 

I don’t have much going on this week blogging-wise. I’ve been so obsessed with thrifting lately that I’ve spent most of my weekends dragging my husband to thrift shops and flea markets. I’m thinking about doing a weekly post of my vintage finds, actually. I don’t know if you guys will go for that. Let me know! In the meantime, here’s a sample of what I’ve picked up on my thrifting adventures.

 

 

 

I’m not gonna lie, my house has seen some chaotic changes lately but I’ve finally picked a theme which is a mix of bohemian chic and mid-century modern. I’m enjoying finding some pretty cool vintage pieces. So much so that I’m thinking about opening up an online store to sell my finds. I’ll see how it goes.

Thanks so much for reading, everyone! Have a great week.
