I have noticed that a lot of people do weekly wrap-ups. Naturally, a week 2 of April 2018 draws to a close, I am trying this feature out on my blog. In this post, I will summarize my highlights of the week.
Initially, I had planned to read about seven books this week. For whatever reason, it’s very hard for me to disconnect and just focus on reading. However, I have been making a more active stance on incorporating reading days (or even half-days). I am entirely in support of scheduling things in because, if it were up to me, I could just stare at my computer or the walls all day.
Here is what I read this week. More detailed reviews to come!
Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater
Werewolves, love, and plenty of poetry or song-writing. I keep worrying that Stiefvater will hurt one of my babies. Hence my slow progress with this book. I am excited to read the next ones.
Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan
Tyson stole my heart this time. This is kind of a strange experience because last time I read these books, I disliked Tyson. I missed Grover. Percy continues to be awesome. Always trust a cyclops.* (satisfying the Of Wonderland book club’s challenge for the month).
The Field Guide by Holly Black and Tony DiTerlizzi
I was savoring this book. Mallory is my hero. Jared and Simon are an interesting duo. It’s still unclear whether they complement one another in terms of skills or not. They definitely balance each other out with their temperament. * (satisfying the Of Wonderland challenge for the month)
When We First Met was my main new movie for the week. I did like it. It was fluffy and cute, a feel-good movie. Many of Alexandra Daddario’s films are kind of out of my comfort zone, so I don’t get to watch them. Not this one. It was lovely.
It highlights the misleading nature of first impressions, the inevitability of fate and destiny when it comes to certain relationships, and the fragility of a series of life events. A domino-effect type of consequence comes to life in this film after the main character makes changes in how he addresses the girl he fancies.
Maybe I’ll write a review, but I don’t know if I have much to say.
How was your week? Any favorites?
