-DIARY

It has been 3 weeks since my last Sunday Weekly Update. I got in a little blogging slump this month, and I apologize fort that. I haven’t had a lot to tell you about anyway, because the last weeks hasn’t been the most eventful.

A lot of the reasons why I have been in a reading and blogging slump lately, is because I got addicted to the game Fallout 4 again. I bought it on the release date almost two years ago, but quickly became bored after a bug ruined my game. The bug has been fixed for a very long time, but I never got the urge to pick it up again. I’m currently building a Vault in the game. The Vault-Tec Workshop DLC has been pretty fun so far.

I have done some fun things these weeks though. Last Saturday I went to a festival in town with some friends, and yesterday I was at my aunts 50th birthday party. The theme of the party was hippies from the 60s. The party was so much fun, especially since everyone was dressed up.

AUGUST 2017 MONTHLY WRAP UP // What I Read This Month

Unlike July, August wasn’t the most eventful month for me. I have been struggling with motivation to write blog posts and read, lets just say I have been in a massive reading and writing slump. There is one thing that I have been absolutely addicted to doing, and that is playing the game Fallout 4. I bought it on the release date almost two years ago, but quickly became bored of it. I don’t know what sparked my interest to pick it up again, but I’m glad I did. It has been so much fun playing that game the last weeks. 

Something I build a long time ago. I just started building a vault.

TOP 5 WEDNESDAY // August 30th: Favorite Bromances

118368Top 5 Wednesday is created by Gingerreadslainey. Each week there is a new bookish topic, where everyone can join and create their top 5 list. You can find more information on the Top 5 Wednesday goodreads group. This week’s topic is:

FAVORITE BROMANCES.png

– I think we have done this topic before in the distant past, but who doesn’t love a good bromance? Bromance = platonic relationship between two characters who identify as male.

I’m sorry that I couldn’t find more than 3 picks this time. All of these bromances are truly some of my favorite friendship from some of my favorite books of all time. 


Locke Lamora and Jean Tannen from The Gentleman Bastards series

Locke and Jean are my favorite characters from my favorite book series of all time. They grew up together like brothers even though they are not blood related. They care and have so much love for each other. I’m not talking about romantic love, even though they fight and bicker like an old married couple, haha. I had to pick this bromance first, because it’s my ultimate favorite.

Nakata and Hoshino from Kafka on The Shore

They didn’t know each other for very long, but they grew very close on the little journey they had together. Kafka On The Shore is one of my favorite reads this year, and that is because the book has some great characters. I love them all, but I especially love Mr. Nakata.

This is exactly how I pictured them in my mind. Link to source: HERE


Darrow and Sevro from the Red Rising trilogy

Darrow and Sevro grew so close in this series. Just like my first pick, this duo would have done everything for each other. I ❤ Sevro and his Howlers.
