This weekend I’m doing something a little different. I’m borrowing a feature from Rachel’s blog, Life of a Female Bibliophile, called Booktube Bites, a weekly post in which she features bookish videos she finds on the internet. Her most recent Booktube Bites post features a video by Winx & Ink (a booktuber I enjoy listening to) about reading as a form of self care.
The video I’m featuring in this post isn’t book related, but it is a story and as book lovers, one of the many things we love about books, and for many us is the main thing we love about books, is the story within them. I enjoyed listening to this one and watching the graphics and thought it best to share it with you all. Enjoy! 🙂

What I’m reading this weekend:
I’m still reading the second Farseer Trilogy book by Robin Hobb — Royal Assassin. I’m enjoying it so far, but it’s much more detailed that the first book and more engrossing. It fills me up when I read it and after each reading session, I feel stuffed. All I can think about a while is the story.
I’m also listening to the audio book of George R.R. Martin’s A Storm of Swords, the third novel in the Song of Ice and Fire series. I’m a little apprehensive about this because I wanted to read rather than listen to this book; but because I had a free credit and missed listening to Hardcore Game of Thrones since I breezed through all their episodes, I decided to get this audio book. I listen to it while I work and sometimes I zone out and start daydreaming and miss much of what’s been said, so I might have to switch to the physical book soon.
As I mentioned in my book haul, I’m also reading The Summer That Melted Everything by Tiffany McDaniel, which I received from the author for review. I’m still only a few pages in because I got no reading done since Thursday. But so far, so good.
