I am so glad this week has come to an end because I wasn’t feeling productive at all and I want a restart or a new beginning. That is what this Sunday is all about.
To be fair, I had so many things to do this week and I ended up not doing anything at all. Does anyone else feel this way – a minute ago everything seemed good and then nothing, not a drastic slump, no high or low but just a lull? I hope that ended with last week and I am back to the charming ol’ self!
Remember I keep talking about the Emirates Lit Fest 2019 and how I am gonna be volunteering there? I attended the Volunteer Manager briefing session this week and I loved meeting old and new friends.
Guess what, many of them were book lovers like us and we discussed about the authors who were attending the event and books we loved (obviously!). I can’t wait to go to the event (happening between March 1st to 9th).
What I read:
I finished reading the Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde for the Penguin Classics challenge 2019 and I loved it.
Do you believe when they say ‘a good book finds you at the right time‘? I am not sure if I would have appreciated it as much had I read this any time earlier.
I also read ‘The man in the brown suit’ by Agatha Christie, for my ‘Classics and Christie’ Club.
And if you like the pictures I shared consider liking and following my Instagram profile.
What I watched:
I finally ended my 3 months sabbatical from the television and Netflix this week! Yes people I had not watched any Netflix for about 90 days and I survived.
And I wanted to commemorate the end of this ban by watching a movie that I had been wanting to watch for a long time – Ralph breaks the internet.
And I ADORED IT! I loved how Disney trolled itself about its princesses.
On my blog:
Remember I was telling you how my week wasn’t productive? Well I posted only twice this week.
