Wrapping Up The Week (2nd July – 8th July)

I have decided that I am over summer and this heatwave that we are having in the UK. It is way too hot to do anything! Not only that, but the last week has been a nightmare. Monday and Tuesday were spent curled up in bed with a fever, I went into work Wednesday, and worked from home Thursday and Friday because I couldn’t stop coughing. Having a chest infection isn’t fun.

However, over the weekend I have done nothing but rest, write, read, and do some drawing, and I am feeling so much better for it. I managed to finish my first book of the month (which took me a while to read as I was ill) but it was such a great book! I’m so far behind on writing reviews it’s unreal and now that I am starting to feel better I will be making a start on those this week. Good thing the books I’ve read recently have been so amazing and I can remember so much of them.

Books I read and reviewed…

ACOTAR

No reviews written, but I finished reading A Court of Thorns and Roses, and omg, I’m in love with this book. It was incredible! The amount of times I found myself just smiling as I read the words was unreal, mainly because of Tamlin. He is perfect and honestly, I probably would’ve done the exact same as Feyre to have him. I do know that a lot of people love Rhys (although he was a bit of a douche in this book) so I’m assuming he does something to redeem himself, because I am all for Tamlin at the moment. And Lucien, because he’s so snarky. Expect a long review on this book very soon!

I am currently reading…

How could I not pick up the next book in the series after loving the first so much? I’m only 40 pages in, but already I know I’m going to enjoy it. Things don’t look so great for Feyre and I swear, if she breaks Tamlin’s heart I will not be happy. I can’t wait to delve into this world even more and discover more about the characters.

Posts from the week…

Wrapping Up June ’18 – A Very Hectic Month

Top Ten Tuesday: Books With Red, White and Blue Covers

June Book Haul and Being Ill

My TBR For July – Starting New Series!

It’s a good thing I scheduled in a couple of these posts, because I would not have been able to write that much otherwise! I always find the first week of the month to be a busy one with all the wrap up posts, but I do have a couple special posts coming up very soon.

My WIP…

This week has not been a good one for my writing. Being ill throws everything off balance and I was just too sick to even concentrate on anything, what with the pounding headache and all. However, I still managed to write a bit and have reached just over 36,000 words on my novel.

It is finally starting to take shape and I am moving into act 2, which is where all the drama is going to unfold. Next up is a scene that I know will be challenging because there is a lot of action, death, and scary stuff. Kind of dreading it, but if it’s not perfect I won’t worry too much. That is what revisions are for!

Other Fun Stuff…

Over the last week I have been getting back into my art and I am almost finished with one piece! Unfortunately, I can’t show it on here because it is for my mum and I know she reads my blog posts sometimes. You’ll just have to wait and see until next week when it is completed!

And that was my not so fun, but also kind of good week. A lot went on and I’m just glad that it is over with (especially the being ill part, although I still have a croaky voice).

I hope you all had a great week as well and if you read any amazing books, let me know in the comments!
