Weekly Report

Posted July 18, 2020 by Nicky in General / 17 Comments

Gooood morning, folks! How’s your week been?

A few weeks ago, I let you know I was applying to the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine. Well, thanks for all your well wishes — I’m in! I’m still working out whether I can take some prior credit in so I can skip the intro to biology module (given I have an entire biology degree), but I should be commencing my studies (part time, via distance learning) in September. I’m really excited!

Linking up with The Sunday Post @ The Caffeinated Reviewer and Stacking the Shelves @ Reading Reality & Tynga’s Reviews.

Books acquired:

Cover of The Man Who Didn't Fly by Margot Bennett Cover of A Song of Wraiths and Ruin by Roseanne A. Brown Cover of Covid-19 The Pandemic That Never Should Have Happened And How To Stop The Next One by Debora Mackenzie Cover of Dangerous Remedy by Kat Dunn

Cover of A Declaration of The Rights of Magicians by H. G. Parry Cover of The Secret Life of Bones by Brian Switek Cover of Solve Your Stress Cycle by Emily & Amelia Nagoski Cover of The Extraordinaries by TJ Klune

Thank you to Moon Kestrel for A Declaration of The Rights of Magicians, Malou for Dangerous Remedy, and the bunnies for The Extraordinaries. I am being spoilt lately, and I love it! Also, thank you to K.B. Wagers for recommending Burnout — I’m normally pretty allergic to any kind of self-help stuff, but a) I need to read a self-help book for a reading challenge prompt, and b) there’s good stuff out there, it’s just hard for the genre to rise above some of the blatantly bad books.

Books finished this week:

Cover of The A.I. Who Loved Me by Alyssa Cole Cover of Ring Shout by P. Djeli Clark

I have a book voucher in need of using… and an order incoming from Portal Bookshop… so it’s going to be a busy week for my letterbox. What books have you been grabbing lately? Anything you’re ready to shake down the postman for?

    I’m really excited to read A Declaration of the Rights of Magicians.. it sounds really interesting! 😀

    Hope you have a wonderful bookish week ahead!

    • I’m really excited! I loved studying infectious diseases during my BSc, and writing my dissertation, and the little bit of lab work I got to do… 😀

      I still need to read the author’s other book; so many books, so little time!

  2. Woooo congrats on the place!

    Highlight of my week (much to the bemusement of my beloved, who didn’t know what to do with me literally jumping up and down squeeing) was the arrival of A Declaration of the Rights of Magicians. Very much looking forward to that one.
