So, welcome to this week’s weekly update! \o/
For those who have been following me for awhile, you’ll know that I adjusted the blog schedule. I hope you like. I do, it’s working great for me!
This week’s reviews have been sorely lacking on the new releases from the cinema. They’ve all been at awkward times for me this week. It’s probably because of half term for the small humans so the times have been prioritized for them.
But! This week I’m planning on catching all the films, I haven’t yet seen, Zoolander 2, The finest hours, Pride and Prejudice and zombies, Spotlight, Triple 9…whatever else.
Also, Grimsby will be coming out this week. I think I’ll be sat there watching in horrified amusement.
I did manage to see Deadpool and Dad’s army, (both of which I reviewed. Spoiler free as all my reviews are.)
AS FOR BOOKS! \o/
This week I read, (and reviewed), The bees by Laline Paull and The infinite sea by Rick Yancey. Both are dystopian.
I’ve been reading a lot sci fi, dystopian and apocalypse type books and I feel the desire for other genres, mainly fantasy, so you’re going to see some fantasy book reviews, at the very least, for this week.
I’ve already read The darkest part of the forest by Holly Black. It’s a dark contemporary fantasy. I’ll be posting a review that on Wednesday.
Luckily, I’ve been recommended a ton of urban fantasy, (a fantasy genre that I haven’t really explored), by Holly Evans @ Chaosfoxwriting. She has a fantastic writing blog that I really recommend checking out. You can also see the post of her urban fantasy recommendations here.
I’ve already ordered one of the books Holly recommended me which is Rosemary and Rue by Seanan McGuire.
Some other books that should be on their way are Red rising by Pierce Brown because I’ve been ITCHING to read this series. Along with Northern lights by Philip Pullman.
I haven’t decided which book will be Saturday’s review. I’m torn between Reckoning by Kerry Wilkinson. A book that I bought in a shop on a whim that has an interesting blurb.
Or Terry Pratchett. Because STP is like snuggling down into a cozy blanket. I want to the Tiffany Aching series so I can finally read his last book. *Sobs* But I also want to read the Discworld series in order. Decisions, decisions.
What films have you been watching this week? And what books have you been reading? Tell me all about them in the comments! \o/
