Week in Review - Week 6


Well, it was bound to happen. After posting every Sunday for over a year, I missed a Sunday. Life happened, but I am still a bit sad about it. It was one of the few constant things I was keeping going... I am not even sure what is wrong with me. I don't live in the U.S., we are having a pretty mild winter, and everything else is pretty consistent. But, I am not really reading, blogging, or anything else that I do consistently. 

But, the week was not all bad. I went out on a girl's night last Monday, which is not something I normally do, and we went to a dinner and a movie. The movie was Split. I would not have picked it and it was super weird, but it was not terrible. It was a fun night! Next time we are going to see Beauty and the Beast which is a bit of a change. lol I am really excited about that movie personally. It was always my favourite Disney movie.

I am hoping whatever this mood I seem to be in will pass soon!

Currently Reading

I tried this on audio and it didn't click. Reading it is going much better!


Okay, I guess I am still reading the same audio as last week. Oops!

Weekly Reading

Morning Glories - Volume 10 ~ Well, after waiting for this over like a year, it finally arrived and I was so excited to check it out. This was such a weird volume. The whole series is super weird, though! Now I hope it will not be a year for Volume 11. 

Black Science - Volume 1 ~ Okay, I really really wanted to try this series. In the end, I was bored. I have no plans to read on and I am sad it didn't click with me.

Shrill ~ Omg, this woman is fabulous and if you have not read this yet, you should! She talks about life in such a readable way. And, she gets into it. I really loved this collection!

Mirror: The Mountain ~ I really liked the idea of this one, but again it was disappointing. I just didn't click with it at all. Sad!

Mockingbird - Volume 1 ~ I wanted to read this because apparently people treated the author terribly. So, instead of waiting for the whole arc to come on Marvel Unlimited, I bought a copy to support her. It was great and I am very disappointed that it is yet another series in the Marvel world that I was really enjoying, but they are not continuing. Strongly recommended!

New Additions

Mockingbird - Volume 1: I Can Explain
Tank Girl - Two Girls One Tank - Collection 1
The Princess Diarist
The March Trilogy

Week in Review - Week 5


  1. I think we all have weeks like that where just on the blah side. Hopefully things will start clicking. I've had a few books on audio that just didn't work for me and I think I would have liked them better if I had just gone with the print side but one I decide it isn't working I'm not great at giving a book another chance. Enjoy Beauty and the Beast! I've never been super in love with the animated version but I'm super excited about this one!

  2. Sorry about your state of the 'blahs'. I think it happens to all of us and winter is particularly bad for me in that regard. I have not heard much about Split, though the previews were kind of scary. I've usually liked the movies that M. Night Shyamalan is involved with. Now Beauty and the Beast - yes! I know I'll love that one. My favorite Disney princess totally - it's the library and the books - ha! I've thought about reading Morning Glories and just haven't. It looked good. Need to check and see if the library has it or maybe Hoopla. Have a better week!

  3. Oh I'm sorry you missed your Sunday post but give yourself a break. I've been feeling very sluggish lately and haven't done much. I think I need to go on more breaks from the news as it's too depressing. Hope you have a better week!

  4. Sounds like it's a mood that's going around. I'm reading just fine but not in the mood to blog. I'm glad you're having a mild winter. Ours hasn't been horrible but we did have one week where it snowed everyday. Ugh!
    Yay for girls night out! I had one of those last week and it was great!

  5. I had heard of Shrill but didn't know too much about it. Lindy West is here in Seattle though so I should definitely read it!

  6. I am planning to watch Beauty and the Beast in gold class. I am that excited about it.

  7. I so want to go see Beauty and the Beast! I don't know if I can convince Jim though. He still remembers the time I tricked him into seeing The Lion King at the theater!
