Wrapping Up The Week (19th February – 25th February)

I find it so hard to believe that it’s March next week, and yesterday it was one month until my birthday. February has flown by, but I feel that it was a successful month. This week was especially good as I felt like I got a lot done in terms of my writing, as well as trying to become more organised.

The weekend flew by, mainly because I was busy on both days. Saturday morning was spent walking in the park and catching pokemon (there was a dratini event and yes, I caught a shiny one). Afterwards we headed to the most vintage cinema I had ever been to, the Kinema in the Woods.


Not to mention, the tickets were so much cheaper than going to the Odeon in town. You can find out what film I saw in the fun section below. Time to talk about books…

Books I read and reviewed…

between the blade and the heart

Between the Blade and the Heart by Amanda Hocking was an entertaining read, although it wasn’t the best book I’ve read so far this year. All in all, it was fun with some action, a bit of romance (not the greatest though) and I read it pretty quickly. Based on Norse Mythology, but in an urban fantasy setting, this book is definitely unique. You can check out more of my views here.

I am currently reading…


While I still haven’t finished reading Zenith (I’m in a bit of a slump with it) I have started reading To Kill A Kingdom by Alexandra Christo, which is all about sirens, pirates, and pretty much everything I love. I can’t even remember the last time I read a book that centred on mermaids and such, so I’m enjoying it so far. Fingers crossed I can finish this one before next weekend and then I can power through Zenith.

Our Trip To A Wildlife Park

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I’m No Longer Interested In Reading

I would have managed to do a post on Wednesday, if only all the bulbs in my room hadn’t decided to blow themselves. So I had to go straight after work to get some and I just ran out of time. Fingers crossed that doesn’t happen next week.


In last weeks wrap up I was on 84,000 words and today I am on 92,000, which just seems incredible to me. I am almost at the end of my book and am writing the final scenes (including my plot twist that I am so excited about). I haven’t managed to write anything today so far as I’ve had a bit of a headache since this afternoon, but I’m hoping to write at least a thousand words if I can.

Other Fun Stuff…


Finally I got the chance to see Black Panther and it was incredible! Honestly, I think it is now my favourite Marvel film and it was everything I hoped it would be. I loved how technology was fused with African culture, the way they handled the tougher topics and the world building was wonderful. Would probably go and watch it again if I could. Plus, the music was perfect.

Today I also went to Whisby Nature Park with my boyfriend and we spent a couple of hours walking around and enjoying the winter sun. It’s supposed to get extremely cold here in the UK over the next few days so we thought we’d get out while we can.


So, that was my week! Hopefully you all had a great one as well, and managed to do some awesome things.

Wrapping Up The Week (6th Nov – 12th Nov)

Boy has it been a busy week for me. Not in terms of reading, but it terms of having meetings with recruitment agencies and arranging for interviews in the upcoming week (I have 3 at this moment in time). There has been so much going on, coupled with my dad coming to visit for the weekend, that I haven’t had much times to blog or read. Fingers crossed that can change this week and I will get a little bit more organised.

I do have a couple of fun blog posts scheduled in and a book review to post as well so definitely keep an eye out for those next week. I cannot believe how quickly this month is going by already, soon it will be December and Christmas will be upon us. There are so many Christmas adverts on my TV and it is getting me excited. Have you seen the John Lewis one? If so, what did you think? Personally I loved it and I’m not going to lie, I did have tears in my eyes by the end.

Onto what went on during the week on the blog…

Books I read and reviewed…

A Darker Shade Of Magic

So, while I finish A Darker Shade Of Magic, I haven’t gotten around to posting the review yet. I will be trying to get it posted for tomorrow (although I have 2 interviews to attend so it may be in the evening).

I loved the book and am so excited to go out and buy the others in the trilogy. It was magical, with fun and dark elements that made the book so interesting to read. And the characters are incredible as well! I feel like it could definitely be a 5 star review for me.

I am currently reading…

Glass Sword

The next book I am going to read will be Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard, the second instalment to Red Queen. I’ve heard some good things about this sequel and I’m intrigued to find out what else will happen in the story.

Top Ten Tuesday: Characters Who Would Make Badass Leaders

What Are You Reading Wednesday #1

First Lines Fridays #3

Like I said, a very quiet week but I am hoping to change that and get some great posts written up! Some good news though is I got my first Netgalley approval through which I am looking forward to reading and will mention in my November Haul at the end of the month.

Other Fun Stuff…


My boyfriend and I finally got around to watching Stranger Things Season 2 and only have 2 episodes left. We are loving it, not as much as the first season but there are still a couple episode left where it can get better. I still feel like there’s more to know and discover, so we shall see.


Whenever my dad comes over from Ireland to visit we always make a trip to the cinema if there are some good films out and luckily for us, Thor Ragnarok was still being shown. I love Marvel films, always have, and I think that this is one of my favourite to date. It was amazing! With great action sequences, special effects and it was hilarious from start to finish. The whole cinema was laughing at some of the lines. Definitely worth the watch!


So that is my week in a nutshell, not too much going on with my reading, but I know that I’ll have a lot to read throughout December. How has your week been? I would love to know in the comments!
