I had to travel to Macau, China as one of my close family member was hospitalized there while on a trip. And then I returned to a mold infested house back in Dubai, no thanks to the scorching summer and a broken AC.
Well, now I am back to blogging from a cleaner house and a reading slump that I am struggling to get out of. I will definitely share some beautiful pictures from my travel soon.
So that is my sad little story, so what about you? What did I miss in these two months?
What I read this week
I am not at all proud to say I have not read a book since the end of July. At least I had solid reasons for that, during August.
It has been almost two weeks since I returned and I can’t seem to find some time to read. And even if I did, I can’t get myself to focus. Can I blame it on the mold infestation?
But now that I am done with all those pesky household chores, I am determined to get it over with and I am hoping The Bookish Life of Nina Hill will be the book that will pull me out of the abyss.
What I watched this week
On the bright side, I have been catching up with a lot of TV shows that I had missed due to my travels.
- I loved and adored the Money Heist new season S4. And my dislike for Tokyo has heightened. Fight me, Tokyo-fans!
- All those who recommended me the K-drama Love Alarm, thank you! I loved everything about it, except for the fact that I have to wait for the next season.
- I also finally caught up with The Ranch. I didn’t love it but it was okay.
On cinemas I watched IT: Chapter two and the Ad Astra.
I liked IT better than Ad Astra, being the horror and Stephen King fan I am. Even though this second part had a lot of things going as expected, I missed the nostalgic 80s warmth and humor.
And I found Ad Astra to be too damn slow for my liking, despite loving the premise and visual grandeur of the film.
