Happy Valentine’s day to everyone! I hope everyone (with or without a partner, currently) has a fabulous day. As I was telling someone else, today would be a great day to give yourself a treat and do all the self love that you deserve.

I am glad to announce that I finally got my second dosage of COVID vaccination earlier this week. And the second dosage administration was more streamlined than the first and we were out of the vaccination centre within 10 minutes.

What I read this week

Last week I spent a lot of time trying to choose what to read but at the end I didn’t read much.

But I did finish a book from one of my favorite authors, Gillian Flynn – finally.

Sharp Objects has been sleeping on my bookshelves forever and I am glad I picked at least now. AND I LIKED IT. I will have to post a review pretty soon.

What I watched this week

I am so glad decided to give another chance to Parks and Recreation. And am at the end of the season 2 and I am finally getting into it.

I also started watching the popular K drama “Romance is a bonus book”, and so far it is quite interesting.

    Yay for vaccines! I think Sharp Objects was her first book. I liked it as well. I liked it more than Gone Girl. Have a great week!

    • Gayathri

      Yes it was her first one!

  2. Maureen @ Maureen's Books

    I hope you had a nice valentines day. And how great that you already got your second vaccine. We aren’t nearly as close here.
    Have a great week and happy reading.

      I hope you are staying safe though.

  3. Literary Feline

    I am glad you were able to get your second dose of the vaccine and everything went smoothly. I get second dose this afternoon.

    I have not read Sharp Objects yet, but I have a copy on my TBR shelf. I am glad to hear you liked it!

    I hope you have a great week, Gayathri!

      I hope you got yours!

    Happy Valentine’s Day! And glad tohear you got the second dose- I hope it’s smooth sailing as far as side effects. That must be a good feeling to have the vaccination- peace of mind. 🙂

      Yes, the vaccine has definitely reduced the COVID related anxiety a bit.

  5. Yvonne

    Happy Valentine’s Day! No special plans here – maybe a nice dinner.

    Glad to hear you got your second COVID dose and it went well.

    Hope you have a great week!

  6. jessicabookworm

    Great to hear you were able to get your second dose of the vaccine, Gayathri and ticked off a book that has been on your bookshelf for too long! I am currently reading the romantic suspense Madam, Will You Talk? by Mary Stewart and watching the true-crime drama The Pembrokeshire Murders. Take care and happy reading. 🙂

    • Gayathri

      Those are new to me. Will check them out soon.

  7. Rachel

    Hope you enjoy your Valentines Day. We have no special plans other than driving home and listening to an audiobook on the way. Yay for getting your 2nd dose. I got my about a month ago since I work in a hospital. My husband got his 2nd dose (perk of being my family member) last week. Happy reading!

  8. Diana @ Book of Secrets

    Parks & Rec was one of my favorite sitcoms. I miss it! I’ve only read Gone Girl, and have been meaning to read more of Gillian Flynn’s books. Good to hear Sharp Objects was good!

  9. Tessa

    You must feel so relieved to be fully vaccinated. Sounds like a good week all around ❤️

  10. sjhigbee

    I hope you also have a lovely day:)). And I’m delighted that you have had your second COVID jab. Have a great week!

  11. Laurel-Rain Snow

    Good news about getting your second dose. I had a few aches and pains afterwards…but they might not stem from the vaccine. I tend to have a lot of those anyway!

    Love your pretty Valentine images!

    Enjoy your week and your books, and thanks for visiting my blog.

  12. Linda @ (un)Conventional Bookworms

    YAY for getting your second dose of the vaccine, Gayathri! I’m so happy for you. Did you have any side effects? I’ve heard of people who felt perfectly fine, but also of people who felt like they had the flu for 48 hours… I keep hoping it’ll be my turn soon.
    Have a wonderful week ahead, stay safe and healthy.

  13. Tanya @ Girl Plus Books

    So great that you’ve got your second vaccination! What a relief. and it’s always such a good feeling to finally pick up a book that has been lingering on your shelves for a long time.

    • Gayathri

      I agree with you totally!

  14. Shelleyrae @ Book’d Out

    No plans for Valentines, I think my husband and I both basically forgot about it!
    I’m going to watch the last of the All The Boys I loved Before with my daughter tonight though.

    Wishing you a great reading week

    • Gayathri

      LOL, Oh yea that happens. TATBILB seems a good way to celebrate it!

  15. Iza

    I read Gone girl by Gillian Flynn and loved it, I plan to read more novels from her. Congratulations for the vaccine ! My eldest loves Korean dramas, I’ll ask her if she knows this one. We haven’t yet finished watching Goblin together but we’re enjoying it very much. Have a great week !

    • Gayathri

      I would love some more K drama recs pl!
