Wondering what we’ve been up to lately? The Discriminating Fangirl Weekly Update will keep you all informed about what we’re into this week. You can always follow us on our Facebook page, Twitter, or personal social media accounts for more.

Reading: Kushiel’s Avatar by Jacqueline Carey as part of my Dueling Reading Challenge. If you’re interested in what I’ve read so far (and where to buy them), you can check out my pinboard.

Listening to: You’re the Expert podcast. If you enjoy science and comedy, or even just trivia, you should check out this weekly podcast. Three comedians/comedy writers compete to answer questions based on the specialization of the guest scientist. One week, the scientist specialized in disco clams and another featured an Outhouse Archaeologist who worked for the city of Boston.

Watching: This sums it up:


Working on: Almost finished with a cross stitch project for my mom’s birthday. Then I’ll start on a crochet project.

damien-sdccReading: I just finished reading Warrior’s Cross by Abigail Roux and I started reading the next installment in the T.H.I.R.D.S. series by Charlie Cochet, called, Catch a Tiger by the Tail.

Listening to: The newest Critical Role episode on Youtube, because I’m addicted to that show and it’s nice to listen to when I’m at work. 

Watching: Damien on A&E, because I’m caught up on all of my favorite shows at the moment. 

Working on: Getting my D&D character’s spells organized by spell level and learned/not learned yet in my “spellbook”. Also, working on my current Dragon Age: Inquisition playthrough and Fallout 4. 

Reading: Just started The Drafter by Kim Harrison. It looks like it’s being republished by a new publisher, though it’s been out for a while already. But it’s new to me, and I hope to have a review up next week!

Listening to: I’ve had one of my favorite playlists on repeat this week, and this song’s been sticking out to me. 

Watching: Honestly, is anyone watching anything other than Star Wars right now?

Working on: I’m finally playing Skyrim. I’m just five years late, no big deal. I also tried to beat the shit out of some jerky bard for harassing a woman, and I got my ass handed to me. You just wait until I level up, Mikael.

Keep an eye out for next week’s post. Let us know what you’re up to this week in the comments below.
