May 2018 Week 1 Wrap Up



This week, my immune system hollered a “peace out!” claim and this rude cold (or flu, who knows) barged in. I did not agree with this kind of behavior, body, but I suppose no one asked for my opinion anyway.  Nevertheless, I magically wrapped up reading three books. Two were novels and the third was a cookbook. (Make of that what you will. It’s basically required for me to stare at the ingredients, look at the pictures, drool, and repeat the process with all recipes).

Book 1 Wrap Up: Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

I have finally stumbled on another favorite for 2018. The silly thing here is that I was afraid of Laini Taylor’s writing because everyone said it was flowery and slow-paced. Instead, I spent my time staring at the vivacious setting, characters bursting with realness, and a plot that is relentless. I love it. Perhaps I will share more details next week in a post dedicated to this book.

Book 2 Wrap Up: Dark Days Club by Alison Goodman

`The adventures of Lady Helen, the protagonist, had the pacing of a sloth but then Goodman managed the plot more efficiently. I enjoyed the story, however, I have luckily read books that balance polite Victorian settings with some sort of action better. I do own the sequel, so I intend to keep on reading about Lady Helen.

Netflix Update

I watched Candy Jar this week and I have started working on an article for my Hubpages. I am thinking of doing something fun as a tribute to the film. Hopefully, I can manage to pull it off and post it on here.

 Other Things

I published a new hub over on my Hubpages account. It is about Rogue One and how it caters to a modern audience, one that is starkly different than previous generations. You can check it out here.

  1. I’m sorry to hear you’ve been sick! That sucks! I hope you feel much better soon.
    I’m glad you enjoyed Daughter of Smoke and Bone. I’ve had that on my Kindle since forever, but haven’t read it yet. It’s one of those books that’s been so hyped I’m kind of nervous to read it, in case it doesn’t live up to my expectations. I think I’m going to have to bump it up my TBR list though and give it a go soon though! 🙂
    Have a great week! 🙂
