Week in Review - Week 27

Random Thoughts

I have been blogging for all these years, and this is the first year that I have made my own buttons. I enjoy changing them up for each month and making use of my own pictures! (I use Canva if anyone is curious.) If I can't find a picture of my own to use, I have been known to use Pexels because they offer free stock photos. I am branching out in the world. lol 

Otherwise, my week was uneventful. My reading slump kicked into high gear this week sadly. I find that I am doing other things in the time that I normally would be reading. But, I did make a big decision. I love my bullet journal, but I wanted a conventional planner in an attempt to manage my time better than I was finding I could do with my bullet journal. Plus, the prices are scary... But, I decided for the 1 year since I broke my ankle day, I would buy myself something that I wanted and wouldn't buy typically. So, I decided that would be one of the planners I have been eyeing. I am really excited! It only took me over 6 months to actually buy one because there were so many options!

Weekly Reading

Uncanny X-Men - Volume 6 ~ This series on Marvel Unlimited was one of the first that I read when I first got my membership. This was the end of the run and it was a good run. I have always liked X-Men and have enjoyed finally reading some of the comics over the last year or so! 

Loki: Agent of Asgard - Volume 3 ~ This series I started in the last half of 2015 and finished it up this week. This volume lead up to Secret Wars, but was released after it was all ready running. I noticed that with a couple other series, too. I enjoy Loki. He is the trickster and you never know what he will be up to next. I hope he will be back for a new run soon!

Deadline (Newsflesh Trilogy) ~ Audio ~ I am really enjoying this trilogy on audio! (As you can see I am listening to book 3 right now!) I have found that paranormal and vampires are starting to get old to me, but I enjoy this take on the whole idea. I have been meaning to read Mira Grant forever and this seems to be her year now that I have finally started! If you haven't read this series, I definitely recommend it!

The Girls ~ This book has had a lot of buzz and I decided to grab a copy because it was not ridiculously overpriced like other new releases have been this year. A couple years ago, I would never have liked this book. I just was not a fan of books narrated by teenagers... But, my reading tastes have changed and I really really liked this! I am glad I read it right away before the hype started to make me put it off. If you haven't read it yet, it is definitely deserving of the hype surrounding it!

Weekly Pictures


  1. I think your buttons are great! I wouldn't even know where to begin in making my own. I always rely on my husband for stuff like that--or others. You really are a talented photographer. I am sorry your reading slump is worse. I am glad you are enjoying Mira Grant's books and Emma Cline's novel. Someday I'll get around to reading them too! I hope you have a great week, Kelly!

  2. Everybody seems to be in a reading slump right now. Must be summer. I want to get to the Mira Grant series!

  3. Yay reading!! I love all the pictures. The animals look delightfully lazy.

  4. I love the picture of the dog in the lake and the cat with the book. Have a great week! :)

  5. I've seen the Emma Cline book on several blogs lately. I'm not so much tired of paranormal as tired of poorly written, cliched paranormal. :) Still up for clever, well-written zombies, vampires, ghosts, etc.

  6. Oh you have to show your planner! I love that you decided to go and get one - good for you!! Do you have a comixology subscription? I tried it for a brief time but wasn't wholly impressed by it. Wondering if I am missing something with it.

  7. Sleeping pets are the absolute pinnacle of contentment -- or at least the appearance of contentment. Gorgeous pictures!

  8. I liked the Newsflesh series. I haven't gotten into Grant's other series unfortunately. You might have persuaded me to read The Girls. I've been resisting.

  9. I want a nice planner too but will probably wait until closer to the end of the year and then get one for 2017. I'm dying to get my hands on The Girls!
