I’m so happy to be back home from overseas!
I returned home on Wednesday and man, it as been too long to be away from my beloved bed.
Whilst away at Indonesia/Singapore, the worst thing happened!!!
I FORGOT MY CAMERA!
*gasp* *sobs* *gurgles weird desperate sound*
So we bought another one but it’s small Nikon which I didn’t particular like because I couldn’t manually choose any settings. But I made do.
Anyway, I came home with a ton of packages, some completely wrecked from the rain. Thank you postman for leaving them strewn all over the driveway – very smart of you.
This week was mainly filled with unpacking, reading, sleeping and writing. In a week, I’ll be back to school so wish me luck because this Summer has gone waaaay too fast.
I’m just going to recap all my posts from my last weekly recap because I did not do any whilst I was away.
- Book Review: Their Fractured Light (Starboard #3) by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner
Seriously one of my favourite concluding books in the world! Everything was tied up so cleanly with no compromise to an awesome, action-packed plot line and fantastic characters!
- November Book Haul
Woah, we’re going way back now. I got a heap of books during the month of November. My book-buying went just a little crazy. Just a little
- Book Review: Mistletoe and Mr Right by Lyla Payne
I reviewed two very sweet, very swoon-worthy Christmas themed romances. It’s a total happy pill.
- My 2015 Highlights
I flashbacked to all my 2015 memories, all regarding books, movies, TV and music. It was truly an awesome year for all of them. I might’ve fangirled a bit too much whilst writing this post.
- Book Review: The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson
My first Jandy Nelson!!! And man, was it heart-breaking yet swoon-worthy at the same time. I love the raw emotion and Lennie as a character. Plus, the love interest ain’t so bad either.
- My Thoughts on the Shadowhunters Premiere
Yeah. . .
It was definitely interesting. The acting was pretty terrible, so was the CGI but I still recommend watching it if you want a laugh. I definitely did. Just watch it for Simon, he’s worth it.
- Let’s Talk: School Reading
I discussed my unpopular opinion of reading school designated books and how I don’t particularly enjoy it even as a bookworm. I promise I have valid reasons. I guess you’ll just have to check my post out to find out those reasons. Hehe.
- Etsy Spotlight: BelleCardsandetc
One of my best friends opened up an Etsy store where she sells her gorgeous artwork on cards. Her store Bellecardsandetc can be found HERE.
- I think we’re all mourning Alan Rickman’s death. May he rest in peace, we will all definitely remember him and his superb acting.
- Court of Mist and Fury Cover Reveal.
The second ACOTAR book by Sarah J Maas now FINALLY has a cover!
Isn’t it G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S?!
The Night tattoo looks super haunting and I’m so excited and super terrified about what’s going to go down in this book.
- Tahereh Mafi New Book!!!
You might know Tahereh Mafi as that gal who wrote the totally addicting triogy, Shatter Me. I engulfed these three books plus their novellas in three days. Not joking, that’s how action-packed and amazing it was.
Anyway, I am super psyched to share with you that she’s releasing a new book named *dramatic music* FURTHERMORE. You can read more about it HERE.
- More Shatter Me News!!!
The series has been optioned for TV. I have no idea how I feel about it, I just hope that it won’t come out like Shadowhunters. A simple ask, right?
- Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children Movie!!!
Guys, I KNOW for sure that this film with the fantastic! It’s being directed by Tim Burton who is AMAZING and just imaging it, this book would be such a great film. Woo hoo!!! I’m so excited for when a trailer comes out. Someone let me know ASAP when that happens!
BY THE WAY, DOES ANYONE FIND IT UNBELIEVABLE CUTE THAT RANSOM RIGGS AND TAHEREH MAFI ARE A COUPLE?
Well, I have literally just finished Everything But The Truth by Mandy Hubbard. Thank you Bloomsbury for sending me this book!
But I am planning to start one of my school-designated books, Othello.
I would die without No Fear Shakespeare, it clears up all that confusing Shakespearean stuff for me.
LET ME KNOW HOW YOUR WEEK WAS?
