I have hot water – I repeat: I FINALLY HAVE HOT WATER AGAIN!! And of course I celebrated with a steamy hot bath, whilst roasting my socks on the radiator. What can I say, I love being warm!! Other than that not a lot have happened this week, which is totally fine by me. Uneventful means nothing bad happened. Well actually one big thing have happened to me, I’ve went two months without coca cola.
Sounds easy or like a silly accomplishment? Well it’s not when you’ve been drinking 3 cans every day for at least 10 years. The first week without the sugary goodness I had constant headaches, and my body felt tired and just “meh”. After that it got better. But honestly when I go grocery shopping I still have to mentally prepare myself to come face to face with the iconic drink. After I decided to stop drinking coca cola I’ve had so many people asking why I didn’t just switch to zero or the diet version. But I HATE THEM. I hate anything where you can taste the sweeteners, and that’s all I can taste in those. Instead I’ve starting drinking water and Ribena lemonade. When the craving for something fizzy is really bad, I can just about force myself to drink a mini can of Sprite without sugar. So yes, I’m quite proud of my accomplishment!!
Let’s take a look at the book reviews I’ve posted this week:

What’s next on my TBR?
Right now I’m in between ARC and author/publisher deadlines, which is a rarity. This also means that I have some downtime to pick exactly what I’m in the mood for! While I’ve been so caught up in review requests, I’ve neglected some series that I at the time was completely caught up with. So in the meantime the wonderful authors have (of course) released new instalments, which is exactly what I will be focusing on. I’ve already started the third book in Their Dark Valkyrie, and now I’m actually glad that I didn’t read it right away. Because the plot is thickening and as the series is finished, I don’t have to wait to know how it’s all going to play out for Ari and her Norse gods.
What have you read and done this previous week? Anything new and exciting happened? Let’s chat in the comments!
