March 12, 2018: It’s Monday, What Are You Reading?


It’s Monday, What Are You Reading? is a weekly meme currently hosted by The Book Date. It’s a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week, and add to that ever-growing TBR stack.

Hey there,

I haven’t done these in a couple of weeks because I haven’t really been reading. Different parts of my body have been taking a hit one after the other in the past few weeks so I haven’t been up to doing much. I did however, catch up on Scandal, How To Get Away With Murder, and the new Queer Eye (which I adore so much), and watched reruns of Gilmore Girls (I know, I know) and Brooklyn Nine-Nine. 

Meanwhile, I have started working with a new trainer (who is so much more professional than my physiotherapist) and it’s been good so far. It’s so interesting navigating physical activity spaces as a fat person, but so far there have been no red flags. Sometimes the intensity of the past year hits me and I get frustrated by how I have to claw my way through the progress, especially when it takes so much longer to recover from things. But I’m trying not to dwell on the things I have no control over. 

Now that I have significantly bummed you out, if you’re still with me, take a look at what I’m reading this week:

That’s all I’ve got, friends. Drop me a line in the comments and share what you’ve been reading!

  1. I’ve heard a lot of good things about the Queer Eye reboot but I haven’t tried it yet! And Gilmore Girls is *always* a treat!
    I’m reading the 4th in the Dark Tower series by Stephen King… it’s a monster and I’m probably gonna take a while reading it, pick up some other things and finish them before I finish it. I’ve got Goodbye Vitamin checked out from the library, I’ll get to that soon!
    I’m glad things are working out so far with your new trainer.


    1. Oh the Queer Eye reboot is so great, and manages to subvert so many terrible things that typically happen on makeover shows, including some excellent conversations between the Fab Five and their clients. Props to you for reading the Dark Tower series- it’s on my dang TBR. I adored Goodbye, Vitamin, and I hope you enjoy it too.
