Hello all and welcome to the wrap-up for the week ending 24/2/18!
Yes, this is a day late but I have a very good reason for that. You see, I worked all day and then was at a festival all night. I was home for maybe five minutes in between those two events, and I wasn’t home until about 1am. So, I did not have the time to write or post this on Friday, although I was aware that it might have been the case. Nonetheless, it was always going to be posted eventually. Better late than never!
In other news, I’ll be back at university on Monday. I’m excited that it’s my last year but I’m also aware on how busy I will be. I was reading over my course outlines the other day and I can say I am really interested in what each is about. I’m particularly excited about my linguistic classes, and I can assure all of you there will be more linguistic concept blog posts. There may also be some posts to do with anything interesting I learn in my other classes too. Either way, there’s going to be a range of content that will be available in the next coming weeks!
Anyway, let’s get into this wrap-up!
Perfect Prey by Helen Fields was reviewed on Tuesday.
I had planned on reviewing Bitter Fruits by Alice Clark-Platts on Thursday. Since I wanted to get Calling Major Tom by David M Barnett done, I lost track of time and didn’t get the time to write a good review. There was also a good movie on Thursday evening that took my attention… damn you, Jurassic World!
Unfortunately, the day I had planned to write the third instalment of my Genre series, all the technology in the house decided to not work for me. My Internet plus my laptop and my phone all were playing up all day and I could not figure out how to fix them. So, instead of staying up until some ungodly hour I went to bed and hoped the problem would fix itself over night.
I finished Calling Major Tom by David M Barnett this week, hurray! It was quite an interesting story that I didn’t expect. Keep an eye out for the review that will come out soon!
This means I will now be reading Finding Nevo by Nevo Zisin. I’m not sure what to expect from this book. However, I’m very curious. I’m sure it’ll be great!
The Tomorrow Series by John Marsden. I hope this series is as good as I remember it!
Achievements of the week
With university right around the corner (next week!), I’ve been enjoying not doing much. So, I haven’t been to the gym or done any exercise. I also didn’t post everything I wanted. It’s been one of those kind of weeks. However, I’ve come up with a new schedule to get everything I want for the website done each week. Hopefully it works because it means you all will get content and I don’t have to stress about studies and work!
This weekend, I have a 21st party to attend. I’m very excited. Also, knowing my friends and I are getting so old makes me feel very daunted by all the adult things in life. I’d rather just read and lose myself in different stories than worry about adulthood!
And that’s it for this week! I’m really hoping the new schedule I’ve come up with will help with consistent content creation while allowing me some time to relax over the next couple of months. I am fully aware I’m going to be super busy but I don’t want to find myself making excuses about not reading again.
