Wrapping Up The Week (13th Nov – 19th Nov)

Sometimes a week can go by at lightning speed and at other times it barely seems to move. This week was definitely the latter for me. It was jam-packed with job applications, meetings and interviews (sometimes multiple ones on the same day) and it involved a lot of waiting around. It wasn’t fun in the slightest. I feel like that has been reflected in the creative aspects of my life, with my writing at a standstill and feeling uninspired to pick up the book on my nightstand.

That’s the negatives, the positives of my week are that the interviews went relatively well and I have a feeling that one of them will want to hire me. It’s not everyday you have someone say “That was a really good interview” when you’re all done! I also managed to post quite a bit, finding a little spare time to draft up some posts and schedule them in.

Books I read and reviewed…

A Darker Shade Of Magic

I finally managed to post my review for A Darker Shade Of Magic, which you can check out here. This was a fantastic read and worthy of 5 stars. I’m already itching to go out and buy the rest, but I might just wait and ask for them at Christmas.

I am currently reading…

Glass Sword

I am still making my way through this, but I’m not into it. So I am very close to starting another, possibly Talon by Julie Kagawa, which I’ve heard some great things about. Plus, it’s the first in a season which means that if I like it, it’s an excuse to buy more books.

Posts from the week…

Sherwood Forest: The Home Of Robin Hood

Being Nominated For The Sunshine Blogger Award

The Writer’s Tag

When Life Gets Stressful And The Writing Halts

I had a lot of fun writing these blog posts, especially The Writer’s Tag, and I even managed to get a little personal in the last one. Whenever I manage to pour my thoughts out it acts as therapy and hopefully it can help me in the long run. Don’t worry though, I’m not a fan of writing ranty posts, unless of course, you like that sort of thing.

Other Fun Stuff…

I am still making my way through Outlander, which I started a couple of weeks ago and I am still loving it. Not going to lie, I am definitely planning a trip to Scotland in the future, possibly next summer if possible! And the Scottish accent is growing on me too and is fairly easy to understand (but I am half Irish so I find it easy to understand accents).

Fun fact about me is that I do enjoy a bit of gaming as well. It is actually something that my boyfriend got me into a while ago and with the release of Call Of Duty: WWII we have been playing it quite a bit. I wouldn’t say I’m the best but I do have good aim (according to him at least). I’m actually about to go and play a bit after I have finished writing this blog post.

So, that was my week, but how has yours been? Hopefully it was full of some incredible books and creativity!
