Ah, April is flying by, and so it is time for another weekly wrap-up. For week 3 of this month, I did have a hard time being productive because of some medical issues. Nevertheless, I did manage to finish a few things this week.
wrap up of Books I have Read
As I am working on this post, I am done with two books: Gone by Michael Grant is the first one. This series is one of my favorites, even though the author says things I do not agree with. Still, the characters are fun and the story is really fast-paced without feeling rushed.
It’s a 4.5-star rating for me.
Next, I am also done with The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin. It was a difficult read because it did have really unchallenged problematic ideas on mental illness and recovery from traumatic experiences. But, besides that, there’s something uncomfortable about this reading experience. I have read thrillers before, but this book doesn’t provide any answers (even though I am nearing the 3/4 of the way through mark). I give it a 2-star rating. (I am sorry, fans of the books, but I am unhauling the two books I have from this trilogy. Just not for me).
wrap Up of Movies/ Series I Have Seen
I have gone through some intense times this week and relied on films to cope with things. So, I watched some of my owned films.
Love, Rosie is one of my favorites as it shows a love story between best friends who keep missing opportunities to confess their feelings for each other. Lily Collins makes me happy, and Sam Claflin is endearing.
Me, and Earl, and the Dying Girl is up there in terms of stories that I adore. The book was gross but kind of funny and yet the film is way funnier and heartwarming. If anything, you should watch it for the drugs scene.
Netflix show I have been watching is Parks and Rec . I am now on season 3! In fact, I find myself looking forward to watching the show, which is an accomplishment. Besides, it is nice to see a character close to my nervous and ambitious self (Leslie Knope).
I also watched the very strange Dude movie on Netflix, and it made me confused yet touched? I like the actors and there were moments of brilliance and wisdom in there. (Oh, and I did watch it on 4/20).
That’s my week in a nutshell. How was your week?
