Sundays in Bed With… #MyWeeklyWrapUp

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!

I have spent very little of this Sunday in bed with a book because I can’t decide what to read! I finished a romance novel last night and while I usually keep rolling with romance reads until my mood tells me otherwise, this time my mood has been all over the place and so I’ve now got three books “going” (that I’ve started last night, this morning and this afternoon). They’re not bad books and I’m enjoying each read but my mood is really playing havoc 🀣 Anyone read any of these?

What are you currently reading?

This week has been pretty busy at work with loads of half-day and full day back-to-back meetings. I usually don’t mind but seeing as how I’ve been feeling so unmotivated at work lately, it’s hard to be enthusiastic.

On top of that there has been a lot of family drama that has been driving me nuts! It doesn’t have to do with me directly but more so my brother who is planning to get married but there are a lot of “obstacles” standing in the way. This sounds silly and perhaps in other countries it might be but coming from Indonesia where religion plays a very important role in peoples’/community identities (even if it doesn’t for us personally), it’s a ‘big deal’ that my brother and his gf come from different religions and neither wants to convert. Obviously, we get that it’s okay and they should be allowed to marry however they want, but society and my parents (who’ve become very traditional since moving back to Indonesia) don’t see it that way and it’s causing a lot of tension. I HATE IT.

Reading & Blogging Recap

With all that’s going on this week I’ve missed a few days of posting (like my WWWWednesday and Top5Saturday posts) and I thought I’d catch up with yesterday’s post earlier today but… That didn’t happen! Oops. I’ve been gaming a lot since my mood has been so erratic which has also contributed to my lack of reading and blogging πŸ™ƒ Whoops. But on that note, here’s what I posted this week ICYMI:

First Lines Friday: 21 August
Book Tour Review: The Heart of a Peach by Jess B. Moore
Book Tour Review: Starcross Manor by Christie Barlow
Book Spotlight + Giveaway: Losing Control by Rachael Stewart
#TopTenTuesday: Books That Should be Adapted into Netflix Shows/Movies
#5OnMyTBR: 2020 Release

TRACK HIGHLIGHT

It’s been a folklore kind of week and although it’s probably one of the more popular/mainstream tracks on the album, cardigan has really been getting me through. It’s been playing on endless repeat πŸ–€

🎢 And when I felt like I was an old cardigan under someone’s bed,
you put me on and said I was your favourite. 🎢

I hope everyone is managing to stay healthy and safe, and are doing well! Let me know how you’ve been in the comments below.
Take care of yourselves and of each other, friends πŸ–€

  1. So sorry your brother and his gf are having to deal with all that (and its affects on you)! I hope this week proves to be much better!! I haven’t read any of those, but Fable has had my attention. I’m hoping to pick it up soon.

    1. It’s definitely tough because we had such an international upbringing outside of Indonesia and now that we’re all “back home” the dynamics have totally changed but… we’re still the same? It’s an odd situation lol anyway, I hope you have a great week too and if you do read Fable soon, I hope you enjoy it πŸ˜€

  2. Ugh, family drama is so stressful. I’m sorry about that! I read Fable a week or two ago.. I loved it! It was definitely a good read, I would recommend sticking with that one. I just finished The Sword of Kaigen by Ward and it shattered my heart into a million pieces. Book hangover. lol!

    1. Lol I totally agree… Family drama is SUCH a drainer πŸ˜‚
      Yay, glad to hear you enjoyed Fable! I ended up reading something other than these three books LOL but I’m gonna go back to Fable soon, I think. I’m feeling a bit more fantasy-ish right now. I’ve heard about Sword of Kaigen! My interest is definitely piqued πŸ˜€

      1. Yes, I’ve had my fair share of family drama and it’s no fun. I’m the peace keeper and it’s just so much at times. haha. Ohhh, good!! Sometimes when nothing sounds good, a differen’t book is a great option. I hope you do get to Fable at some point. It was really good.

    1. Thanks Leah. Family drama…. Could definitely do without it πŸ˜‚

  3. I’m sorry about the drama! I definitely feel it though….I’ve had my own family drama which doesn’t even concern me but I always get pulled in, haha. It sucks butt!

    Hang in there, Dini! ❀

  4. My mood has been all over the place too–hard to know what to read next when you don’t know what you’re own mood is telling you! Sorry about the family drama, that sounds like it’s super stressful.

    1. Right?! Mood reading can be such a pain sometimes haha especially so when you want to escape reality but nothing takes. Family drama definitely sucks. I wished others in my family liked peaceful environments as much as I do πŸ˜‚

  5. I’ve read two of those wedding shop by the sea books, they’re pretty interchangeable plot wise in that the two I read HAD EXACTLY THE SAME PLOT πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„ just different character names. I haven’t read another since! πŸ˜…πŸ˜…
    Ugh the family drama… sounds an absolute headwreck. Sending hugs πŸ’œπŸ’›β€οΈπŸ’šπŸ’–

    1. I think we’re going to be of similar minds on the wedding shop books!!! I signed up for a blog tour for the fifth book when my brain somehow thought it was the second? Hahaha so I’m not gonna read the other books in between. Don’t think I’ll miss much πŸ™‚

  6. Uuuh, I know that reading mood! I have this happening to me as well from time to time. I hope you’ll figure out which book you want to focus on, or maybe even DNF all three, and read something more engaging! πŸ˜€

    I’m sorry to hear about the situation with your brother. I’m not religious myself (and my family isn’t that much into it either) so I wouldn’t really understand what that means for your parents, but I do know that no one should be standing on the way of someone else’s happiness. Hopefully, it will all resolve soon and everyone will be left content with the decisions they take ❀
