Wrapping Up The Week (5th February – 11th February)

This week started off great. I celebrated my boyfriend’s birthday, work was going really well, I finished a book and then I got the flu. That wasn’t so great and since Thursday I’ve been feeling pretty bad and I’m only starting to get better now. Because of that I had to delay uploading my review, I couldn’t write anything on my WIP because I couldn’t concentrate, but, as I was feeling a little better yesterday, I got into my reading a lot more. Every cloud has a sliver lining and all that.

I’m hoping that nothing is going to go wrong this week and that everything can get back on track. I’m also going to start walking to work in the mornings, which will take about 45 minutes, instead of getting the bus and walking for 20. Time to get healthy!

In terms of reading it was a really good week. I managed to finish reading two books, one I finished today so I won’t have a review up yet, so keep your eyes peeled.

Books I read and reviewed…

the hazel wood

Even though I finished reading The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert mid-week, I only managed to upload my review yesterday, which gave me some time to think it over.  While there were parts of this book that I loved, there were other parts that I didn’t like. One being the fact that it took a while to get to the fairy tale parts. And for a book that is supposed to be about dark and creepy tales, it was a little disappointing. You can see my full review here, in which I gave it 3 stars.

reign of the fallen

I just finished Reign of the Fallen by Sarah Glenn Marsh this evening and I swear, I haven’t read a book this quickly in a while. It was such a great read and I enjoyed every second. There were so many twists and turns, with some shocking events taking place with characters from the beginning, all the way to the end of the book. Honestly, this book was heartbreaking and amazing and I cannot wait to write a full review which should be up within the next two days.

I am currently reading…

Zenith

While I haven’t actually started reading it yet, I have set my bookmark against page 1 of Zenith by Sasha Alsberg and Lindsay Cummings, which debuted on the New York Times list at number 7. There has been a lot of talk about this book and as I follow the authors on social media I have been seeing it everywhere. Safe to say I am looking forward to reading Zenith and giving my views on a book that some people love and some people hate.

Posts from the week…

Top Ten Tuesday: Books That Have Been On My TBR List Forever

WWW Wednesday – Creepy Fairy Tales

I really hate the fact that I got ill because it meant I wasn’t able to blog as much, especially when I got tagged by another blogger in a post and I was looking forward to joining in.

My WIP…

…is coming along very slowly, especially last week where I only wrote a total of 3,500 words. A lot less than I normally do but I couldn’t help that. I have had ideas buzzing around my head and the characters’ voices have been in my head the last few days (I’m not crazy) and I can’t wait to get back to writing. My energy is picking up now and I’m hoping I can get the next few chapters done this week.

Other Fun Stuff…

how-to-get-away-with-murder

I FINALLY finished season 3 of How To Get Away With Murder and oh wow, am I glad I did. I had forgotten how much I loved this show and now I can head into season 4 with so many questions that need answering. Being ill had its perks as I binge watched the episodes that I hadn’t seen and it felt good.

As well as this I also got around to watching The Justice League and I really enjoyed it. I’m a big superhero fan and the film was so enjoyable, much better than Batman Vs Superman. On a side note, Aquaman is now my favourite superhero.

I’m glad that this week is out of the way and now it is on to better things (praying I don’t get ill). I hope you all had a better week than I did and read some great books.
