Weekly Update #117

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Reviewer
It’s a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

Now that's explained, it's on to my weekly recap!

There's nothing really to report!
I think I've officially hit reading slump status, I have no motivation to do anything, no patience to deal with anything or anyone and I'm generally just super super grumpy.
Even worse, the professor is grumpy, the kid is grumpy, I speak to my mum and she's tired and grumpy... It seems to be the general state of people and it's exhausting.

The only thing that saved this week for me was watching the Medici TV show on Netflix. 

Ah well, next week will hopefully be a better one! You know, if I can snap out of this funk.

Hope you're all ok!


All of these lovelies were free via amazon or newsletters.  


Just one novella!

Medici: Masters of Florence (aka S1) and Medici: The Magnificent (aka S2 & 3) although I've only got to the end of S2 so far.
It's awesome! Beautifully acted, wonderful costumes and an amazing soundtrack.
The eye candy is also superb... Just saying.

As I said, I've been binge-watching Medici on Netflix and I'm in love!
This song is hauntingly beautiful and the melody is woven through the show.

Have a great week all!


  1. Oh boy, being grumpy seems to be very normal these days. My dad blames his illness and the virus for everything he does not want to do or why he behaves the way he behaves. It is annoying. Stay strong and safe!

  2. Well Nicci, yesterday I was...grumpy too LOL

  3. Grumpy is good! Us Scots are really good at it after years of practice! *grins* My dad and I are spending the weekend changing the furniture in the living room to give us more space and as we go we're storing stuff in cupboards and chucking out junk. It's looking good but we won't finish until tomorrow!

  4. I'm always grumpy and tied in the Summer because it's so hot. It's 108F here today. Too hot to go outside.

  5. I'm sorry everyone is grumpy! Thats tough! But yay for finding good TV! Hope this week is better.

  6. Oh, no! Sorry to hear everyone is grumpy. I hope something happens soon, that snaps you all out of your funk. Thanks for sharing my post XOXO

  7. Well we are tired here but holding out on the grumpy. I'm still reading and staying home. I hope next week is better. It's going to be too hot here so I won't sleep as well and will be grumpy or have a headache myself. Take care and stay well!

  8. Okay Medici has me really curious now! I'm going to have to check that show out. :)

    Hope you have a great week ahead!

  9. Oh man, I'm sorry to hear that. There's seems to be a lot of slumps going around... I'm honestly in the same boat, just binge watching Supernatural on Netflix. Lol.

  10. I would be lying if I said I haven't been grumpy and exhausted lately either and haven't even really felt like reading, which is shocking for me. I hope we can all pull out of this funk soon!

  11. Yes, grumpy is a side effect of everything that is happening. It is great that we can watch shows on Netflix, etc. I had a nightmare last night that my laptop crashed, and because of the Pandemic, I couldn't take it in to be repaired. Sigh.

    But...I remembered that my Geek Squad does pick things up...but if my laptop has crashed, how to contact them with none of that info.?

    I was in quite a state. LOL.

    I hope you have a better week. Here are my WEEKLY UPDATES

  12. Oh my goodness, doesn’t sound like a fun time at your house these days. :( And boo to the reading slump. THank goodness for Netflix!

  13. Sorry everyone is feeling so grumpy. I get that though. I hope you have a better week - and can get out of your reading slump soon. but yay for a great show to watch. That's a plus.


  14. Sorry everyone is grumpy. I hope you get through that and your reading slump. Have a good week.

  15. Yikes. I'm so sorry to read about the grumpiness. I hope it will get better soon. *Elbow hugs*
    You have got some great looking new books. I hope they will get you out of your reading slump.

    Happy reading.

  16. It's hard when you get in a funk! Hope the moods improve at your house. Never heard of Medici, but I'll have to check it out seeing as you're loving it. :)

  17. Thanks for the link to my post :-)

    I hit grumpy status last week. Now the puppies are here and I have no time to be anything lol

  18. We're all very grumpy too! I can usually catch myself, but husband has very little patience when the children are grumpy, haha. I've been trying to take them on hikes during the week, so we can social distance while getting out of the house. It's been helping! The sunshine, fresh air, and exercise. If only I could read while walking... alas, I must watch the monsters. ;)
