Weekly Wrap Up #20

Still not started this one – oooopsies. I’m still trying to get through Awoken by Sarah Noffke and Invictus by Ryan Graudin. But I’ve literally made zero progress on them so far. #procrastination

 

Read This Week

Words can not describe how much I loved and enjoyed this book. I highly recommend you give it a go if you’re into fantasy. I may try and write a review at some point but I’m not sure – I didn’t make many notes I sort of forgot xD

Life Updates

If you follow me on instagram and/or twitter you may have noticed I discovered snapchat filters. Now I don’t actually have snapchat and I think if I did have snapchat everyone would get fed up of me sending pictures of tea, books and pens etc to them. Still. I’m in love with the filters particularly since this week that sore throat turned into a cold by late Sunday and Monday was a nightmare. I was a coughing mess so Tuesday I had college and I’m pale anyway. I have friends who are pale, and next to me I make them look tanned. (perks of being a hermit? my legs I swear can glow in the dark haha they’re that pale #palegirlproblems) anyway the filters actually evened out my paleness and looking like utter crap. So thank you filters.

Moving away from me and the filters. Valentine’s Day happened, I feel like people make such a huge deal over it. Personally I think it’s overrated, if you love that person you’d show them all through the year right? Not just on the 14th February. Oh but we had pancake day! What did everyone have on their pancakes? I had lemon juice and sugar, it’s the usual for me haha.

This week has been pretty chaotic, what with a cold deciding take residency in me and cause me grief. I’ve also got two assignments due in next Friday (someone save me now!) the plus side is I’m now on half term. I’m glad about that, I need a break from people…I feel like if I said that to my parents they’d look at me and say ‘you need to go out more you mean’ since I actually don’t go anywhere unless it’s college. OR it’s my reading group which I’m hopefully going to this Monday actually.

It’s one of the things I look forward to, as we discuss all things book related, film related and so on but we’re all readers there. It’s great and it’s at my library. Anyway, I’m currently listening to Busted whilst typing this up which is a bit of a throwback for me. So in the comments, tell me a song/s that gives you a throwback to when you were younger.

Well I hope you’ve all had a good week, and I hope this week is a great week for you. Leave a comment with a link to your Weekly Wrap Up/Sunday Post and I’ll check it out (eventually) I’m honestly awful at blog hopping at the moment, what with a cold and college. But I’ll do my best to do some blog hopping maybe Monday and Tuesday.

  1. Thank you for including my post in your wrap up. Some of the other ones you put sound good too, so I shall have a little blog hop around. I hope your cold gets better soon, they are so annoying and cause way more havoc than you expect.
    I love that you have a reading group, I have asked at my libraries and there are none around. I would love it if there was though. I hope you feel ok to go to yours tomorrow and its enjoyable.
    Amanda.

  2. I think a reading group sounds like a lot of fun. And Laini Taylor’s books look so fun- I do want to try her stuff one of these days!

    Hope the cold passes soon- seems like everyone is sick! Have a super week…

    • The reading group is a ton of fun. Her books are nice, I do recommend you give them a go.

      Yes it seems most of us bloggers are suffering with colds at the moment. Hope you have a great week 🙂

  3. Thank you so much for sharing my post! ❤
    I'm so glad to hear you loved Daughter of Smoke and Bone 🙂 I read this book a couple months ago and enjoyed it, but… I was not blown away by it, like I expected :/ I'm hoping to give the rest of the series a try and maybe I'll enjoy it more later on 🙂
    hope you'll have a lovely week x

      I loved it – I wouldn’t say I was blown away by it but I really did love and enjoy reading it. Hopefully the series picks up for you 🙂

      Hope you have a great week too 🙂

    • Maybe its time to brush the dust of it! hehe, it’s a great read I’ve just finished typing my review for it. Not sure whether that’ll be the one coming this week or not, but I did love it.

      Have a great week 🙂

  4. Very nice blog Chloe! I run a more scientific type of blog but you may still want to stop by for some inspiration. Btw I just posted an article on procrastination 🙂

  5. Thanks for sharing my post yet again 🙂
    Hahaha I don’t have snapchat and never did 😀 now I feel old 😀 but there is such a thing as too much social media. Mostly related to time constraints…
    Also, I am seriously very pale too. It’s kind of funny xD
    Oh, and I loooove pancake day! I just had the pancakes 😀 my mom makes really nice ones and I like them just like that, without anything.

    • No worries 🙂

      Haha I feel old sometimes and I’m 17 don’t worry, it’s fine the older you are the wiser you are…meant to be at least haha I don’t think I could handle snapchat tho, like I honestly would just send photos pens, books and stuff to ppl. They’d get annoyed at the end xD

      Yay pale buddies. It’s a joke now, I’m just a ghost, I make my pale friends tanned it’s funny.

      Oooo I think having pancakes without anything on is just as good as having a ton of stuff on them 🙂

      Have a good week, and don’t stress yourself out! ❤

  6. I’ve never heard of lemon juice and sugar on pancakes! Is it powdered/icing sugar, or the crystals you bake with or put in tea? My mind is blown right now haha, at home I always make a syrup with molasses and orange juice to go with pancakes…or waffles…or french toast…

    And I’ve seen Talon here and there before. It’s got a gorgeous cover, but I know nothing about the story, so I’ll keep an eye out for your review 🙂

    • Haha I’m not sure but it’s possible the whole lemon juice and sugar thing is a British thing. It’s probable. And usually it’s best to have caster sugar on, as it’s a finer crystal but I had the normal sugar you put in tea. I’d not recommend putting icing sugar on, not with lemon juice wouldn’t taste right since its more for dusting things haha.

      Haha all I know about it is there’s dragon involved, and I’m down for that. 🙂
