Sundays in Bed With… #MyWeeklyWrapUp [17]

Friends, how is it already practically the middle of August? How? What? When? Now we’re back with another Sundays in Bed With… meme! This meme dares to ask you what book has been in your bed this morning and is hosted by Midnight Book Girl. Come share what book you’ve been you’ve spent time curled up reading in bed with, or which book you wish you had time to read today!

After finishing This Is How It Always Is by Laurie Frankel on Friday I found myself feeling very restless and unable to pick up another book. These are classic signs of a book slump for me and I’m sad to admit that I’m still undecided about my next read! I keep looking (read: gazing longingly) at the many books I have on my shelves and TBR carts, and I keep going back and forth between a few that I want to pick up, but when I start reading, I find myself woefully distracted by another book. I’ve also been distracted by my ARC August TBR list, which I haven’t even made the smallest of dents in! The fact that it’s already mid-August and I haven’t even really started an ARC has me feeling a little stressed out 😰 Welp. But I’m hoping to shake off this feeling in the coming week and hopefully finish (at least) one book! Here’s a list of the books that I started this weekend. Have you read any of these? What do you think I should continue with right now? A Random Act of Kindness is an ARC and Sweet Valley High is for one of my Goodreads Summer Reading Challenge prompts!

What are you currently reading?

This week and weekend has been a bit of a mad time! My parents and sister were visiting me in Bali and so I spent a lot of my time after work hanging out with them and driving them around places. It was really nice to have them here, but I definitely realized how much I appreciate some quiet time alone to decompress and read! I barely read anything at all when they were here! Of course, it’s nice to take a break from reading sometimes and perhaps with how I’ve been feeling like a book slump’s coming on, it was a good thing for me to focus on other things for a while. I’m hoping that I can finally pick and stick to a book this week! For how busy this week/end was, I think I did pretty alright with my blogging, although I still have a fair few reviews from July to catch up on! I’m hoping I’ll be able to catch up a bit this coming week. On that note, here’s a list of my posts from this week, in case you missed out!

    • Haha it was a little wild and I’m actually really glad I can retreat to my cave after work this week without being social 😂can you believe we’re already closer to 2020 than 2018 now?! insanity!


  1. OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sweet Valley High YASSSSSSSSSSSSS…. forgive me Dini, you’ve just made me regress a couple of decades into the 12 year old who was OBSESSED with this series. You should definitely read that in order to stave off the slump. Trashy happy brilliance

    • HAHAHA omg okay so I did end up reading it last night and I was like WoW. Middle school/early high school me could definitely relate to the crazy drama and fickle friendship loyalties (LMAO) but ‘adult’ me was having serious issues trying not to slap 90% of the characters in the face (there were some serious problems) But… SO HIGH SCHOOL. Haha what a mood.

  2. First, I have to say that seeing the cover of a Sweet Valley High book gave me happy memories. I loved those books back in the day! Second, I can understand not knowing what to read next after reading This Is How It Always Is. That was a book I sat and thought about for a while after I finished.

    • I actually did end up reading the SVH book last night and finished it. While it’s funny how the memories from my teen years came flooding back, I really loved this series, I was also a little shocked by how frustrating the characters were 😂

    • Thanks Tracy! I think I’m a little too scared to pick up Finale when I’m in this book slump because what if I ended up getting really frustrated and disliking it because I can’t get into it?! That’d be the worst 😱 Haha
