It's been awhile since I've given any sort of update on what I'm reading but I have been investing in reading a lot these days. Over the past 2 weeks, I've read:

- Fire and Blood (GRR Martin)
- Crime and Punishment (Fyodor Dostoevsky)
- Half of The Witcher Novel series (Time of Contempt, Baptism of Fire, The Tower and The Swallow, The Lady of the Lake, Sword of Destiny, Season of Storms) - I read the first two last year

At the moment I've ran out of things to read but I'm currently scrolling through QBD to buy. Currently looking at the Assassin's Creed books (yes they have books, not just video games) just for lols.

Currently reading 'This is going to hurt' by Adam Kay! Highly recommend for any science/healthcare students especially, it's a great light read. Here's the blurb for anyone interested:

"Adam Kay was a junior doctor from 2004 until 2010, before a devastating experience on a ward caused him to reconsider his future. He kept a diary throughout his training, and This Is Going to Hurt intersperses tales from the front line of the NHS with reflections on the current crisis. The result is a first-hand account of life as a junior doctor in all its joy, pain, sacrifice and maddening bureaucracy, and a love letter to those who might at any moment be holding our lives in their hands."

He has an incredibly funny yet touching way with storytelling :)
