Mug Monday & My Week

Hello and welcome to another beautiful Monday! I hope y´all are doing great.

Today I´m gonna give you a quick rundown on how my bookish and non-bookish week has been. But first… Let´s do a little mug feature.

Yupp. You´ve seen this mug before. I´ve featured this probably half a dozen times by now. With good reason, though. It, weirdly enough, color matches quite a few of my books. Which I find absolutely satisfying ( I´m a weirdo when it comes to colors ). The books, on the other hand, are unread treasures I decided to pull out from my bookshelf and dust off. * sigh * Let´s move on before this post becomes another TBR list rant, or worse… a TBR sob fest. I´m looking forward to reading these, though. Maybe now that I´ve removed the thick layer of dust… Maybe if I keep them on the coffee table I´ll feel compelled to read them ( That clearly didn´t work out. They´re already back in the shelves. ).

 

On to the non-bookish news:

Last week husbutt and I celebrated our 19th anniversary. Not our wedding anni ( that´s in March ) but the day we officially started dating. Hmm, I mean- The day I declared him my boyfriend. The weird part: He was the last to know. The whole village knew before he did. I fondly remember him calling me while I was at work, asking if we were dating because a friend of mine told him he was excited for us. I told him we were most definitely dating ( because you don´t kiss me without a reason ). He didn´t say much after that. I like to think his silence meant he was excited about having a long relationship with the unknown love of his life. Now, 19 years later, I know there can´t be any other guy who can love me more. If you ask him he´ll say he sensed that I was desperate and went along with everything and now it´s just too expensive to file for a divorce. Couple goals, y´all!

 

 

I won´t bother you with the rest of my non-bookish week. T´was uneventful, unless you´d like to read about my failures as a mom. That´s a whole other can I don´t think many are prepared to have opened.

 

Now, for the bookish stuff:

My blog changes are in the works. With any luck, I´ll be able to do a smooth and swift blog change by the end of the month/beginning of December.

Much to my regret, I haven´t been able to read much. Three books so far. But hey… I´m slowly getting back on track.

What I did manage to do was get rid of all the author swag I had laying around the house. I had countless buttons and stickers and bracelets and whatnot… All gone. After having read a post by Jess @Fiction No Chaser it dawned on me that I have a stupid amount of bookish swag I don´t use. Jess´ post Why Are We Obsessed With Book Boxes? gave me that final push and also gave inspiration for a new blog post: What I´d Like To See More In Book Subscription Boxes, which will possibly be uploaded this month. ( Thank you, Jess ❤ )

Speaking of blog posts- I might not have been busy reading ( I´m still ashamed ) but I was able to type up a few blog posts that felt awesome to write. This is definitely linked to the book blog changes I´ve been doing. My aim for the future is to be transparent in all bookish areas and to talk about anything book related I deem worthy of uploading. While I´m 100% positive I´ll be stepping on some people´s feet I can´t say I give a hoot anymore. Fun shouldn´t be held back by opinions.

Due to the pre-written blog posts I was able to pre-schedule more posts. From the looks of it, I won´t need to work much on the blog until after New Year.

 

 

That´s a wrap! I have nothing left to share. My main goal today was to not bore the living Hell out of you. My apologies if that didn´t work.

 

I hope each and every one of you have a wonderful Monday.

No matter where you are or what you´re doing… Feel hugged. Feel the bookish love.
