Books

Here are my thoughts on what I’ve been reading this week!

I’m now about 60% through this book and I’m enjoying myself more than I was last week. The plot has definitely gotten more interesting and that is what is propelling me forward. The characters are still a little disappointing – there just isn’t any growth and they feel very two dimensional to me. I’ll have to wait to the end to decide if it was all worth it in the end. I’m definitely doubting my plan to continue on into the second trilogy. If anyone has read them, let me know if they were better than this first trilogy!

Sadly, I haven’t made any progress in this! I’ve been choosing to listen to music or watch TV/YouTube whenever I have chances where I COULD listen to my book.

I started reading this earlier this week. I was approved for an eARC of this from NetGalley earlier this year and the book releases next week. I’m about 20% into the story so far and…. It’s not going all that well. I’m going to give it a little longer but I might decide to not finish it.

Watching

TV

What I’ve been watching this week!

  • Game of Thrones – Last weeks episode was SO GOOD. View Spoiler »
  • Big Brother 19 – Wahoo, this week was very juicy to watch unfold. It started out on such a low for me View Spoiler » but ended on a high. I can’t WAIT to see what happens next week (slash TONIGHT).
  • The 100 – I watched a couple episodes of this show just yesterday. I tend to watch this in spurts for some reason.
  • The Last Ship – I also watched a couple episodes of this show, which I also watch randomly. I’m in the middle of season 2 right now so I have a lot of catching up to do!

    I haven’t read any of the books you’re reading but I have seen And I Darken but for some reason it hasn’t been recently captured my attention enough to actually read it. I’ve been wanting to see the 100 because I see so many people on twitter talking about it but I just haven’t started it yet. I do find I watch certain shows in spurts.

      I LOVED And I Darken when I read it last year, it was one of my favorites of the year (I forgot to mention this is a reread in this post LOL). I’m rereading it now to continue on in the series. It’s definitely a really slow paced and character focused book, I definitely wouldn’t recommend it if you’re not feeling it, you know? I’ve watched the show in spurts too – my sister is completely caught up and has been begging me to watch more of the series. I’m enjoying it – it definitely has a lot of surprises – but its not like the BEST THING EVER like it is to some people. Very entertaining though!
