what’s the buzz: weekly round-up and book haul
This week has been a bit of a non-starter (despite starting off with a bank holiday!) I just can’t seem to shake this stomach bug so it’s not been the funnest week for me! 🙁
On the plus side, I’ve been playing The Technomancer (again). I’m now on my third playthrough – and honestly, it’s such an underrated game. I have no idea why it isn’t more popular. Well, I do have some idea – the combat is really hard until you get used to it (I can never seem to go above easy level and even that is a challenge!) and it’s very easy to miss important quests. Overall though it is a solid game with really great characters.
Andrew is my favourite character and him and Zach are so sweet (yep, there is a m/m romance – it made being forced to play a male protagonist much easier for me!) I have tried out the romances with the two female companions as well and though I do like them, I much prefer to romance Andrew. It makes sense to me that the achievement for his romance is marked ‘Soulmate’. 😉

weekly bookish purchases
I have been meaning to buy Invitation to the Game (now renamed The Game) for years and years. It’s about time I bloody did haha!
Fell by M.E. Kerr | Fell Back by M.E. Kerr | Close Enough to Touch by Richard Peck | Hey, Dollface by Deborah Hautzig
Yeppers, I know I have yet another copy of Close Enough to Touch (it’s a long boring story!) but I also got these other Lions Teen Tracks editions of Hey, Dollface and the Fell series. Good times!
Rounding out this week’s haul is The Gilded Wolves (this looks so good!) and Brideshead Revisited which is another book I’ve had on my to-read list for years.
