Welcome to Week 6 of 2019!
I’m afraid to admit that things are still fairly in limbo this week. Although, I’ve been still fairly busy with Chinese New Year celebrations so put a few things to the side. I’m mostly recuperating some energy and playing catch up with writing and such. Yet again, Valentine’s marathon is still on so bring on the massive list of movies!
Currently reading: One Flew Through the Dragon Heart (Favan & Flew #1) by C.S. Johnson
I’m past the 30% mark of the book now. Its been pretty tiring in general so I haven’t put a whole lot of energy on reading but I need to pick up the pace and will probably finish this next week. One Flew Through the Dragon Heart is pretty cool. I’m liking it quite a bit especially with its setting and the use of magic and mechanics. The characters are pretty good so far as well. I have a few things that I feel a bit lacking but with only 30% of the book, there is lots of space for the story and character development to change my opinion on it.
Currently playing: Thumper
I have a million games (exaggeration) to get through but somehow, I only found time to play one level of Thumper in one week. Its pretty sad but the reality that gaming was the one that took the hit. It mostly has to do with the fact that I have so many reviews that I’ve started but not finished and its put me in a writing game reviews slump and gaming slump in general. The main goal is to get those done and then move on, and boy do I need to move along and play something else. However, if you haven’t played Thumper, you absolutely should because it is a fantastic rhythm game. I’m stuck on Level 6 which is why this playthrough isn’t complete but I keep trying to beat it.

Valentine’s Marathon is still going very strong. The double feature thing is getting more hectic than I imagined (not sure why I didn’t expect it to be). However, its going to go on for the rest of the month to finish off the alphabet. I really want to get an entire alphabet round done again. Its been a while. With that said, we got a few good pairings here and while there are some fairly lackluster film choices that ended up on the viewing list. The standout films of this week goes to The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society (which I loved so much that I used as the kickoff selection for the Movies and Tea blog’s Friday Film Club HERE), Ibiza and surprisingly, Midnight Sun. As an aside, I took a little moment on Friday night to watch the new Netflix comedy show for Ray Romano which was pretty decent. Some jokes landed much better than others but overall, it was a nice watch.
- Nailed It! Mexico (Season 1, 2019)
Currently binging: The Singer 2019, My Little One (Season 2)
At this point, I’ve binged all the Nailed It series, so when the Mexico edition was announced and then released last Friday, we got right to it on Sunday evening. Nailed It is about as bingeable as ever because its only 8 episodes of 30 minutes so that makes it so easy to get though because its such a small commitment. I should have the binge up very soon but overall, its a very similar experience just adding in the reading subtitles which might make the jokes a little harder to deliver. Other than that, the currently binging ones have taken a break on TV series and gone mostly on the stuff that is currently playing and I’m still enjoying The Singer 2019 and My Little One, especially the latter having a really meaningful latest episode.
That’s it for this What’s Up!
We have next week which will still be movie heavy for a part of it but things are picking up on other sections, I promise.
