My Week

week-10

Work has been absolutely crazy this week (mostly in good ways) so by the time I’ve got home and cooked dinner etc, my brain has felt a bit like mush.  Other than work and then relaxing in the evenings, I haven’t really done much this week except go to the cinema.  I admit, I did something other bookworms may find unthinkable – I went to see The Book Thief before finishing the book!


Reading

Finished: I haven’t finished a single book this week!

Up Next: I’m having a bit of a seasonal reading slump, so whatever jumps out at me this week in the hope of getting things kickstarted again!

I got two books this week.  The lovely folk at HodderFiction sent me a copy of Two For Joy because I sent them a picture of a hedgehog reading (it makes more sense then it sounds!).  I was also very excited to find a review copy of Prince of Fools waiting for me at home after a crappy day this week.  Big thanks also to HarperVoyager for drastically improving my day!

My Week

I have a terrible confession for a filofax owner…This week, I didn’t pick my filofax up once! I’ve had very little on this week except work, and so between that and not really blogging (oops), I just didn’t really have much to write about.  This week I…

  • …finally saw Gravity. I’m still not honestly sure how I felt about it!
  • …went out for dinner for someone’s birthday, and ordered a blue steak. Call me a cavewoman, but I’ll be ordering it that way from now on!
  • …Played some Pokemon on my breaks, because I’m a kid like that!


Reading

Finished: Panic

Up Next: I honestly have no idea what’s next! I’ve been working on The Book Thief but I haven’t got very far into it.  My reading since Christmas has been much slower, so this week I’m not going to plan, just try and read what I fancy!

Since we’re both skint, we agreed on a £5 budget for Valentine’s day gifts.  Part of my gift was a copy of The Cuckoo’s Calling because I still haven’t read it, so that’s one of my incoming this week.  Other than that, my grandparents picked up a second hand copy of Virals for me when we went shopping and I got some library books.

My Week

I very impressively managed to leave my filofax at a friend’s house over the weekend, so I’m photo-less this week.  This week I…

  • …spent a day shopping with my dad and sister.
  • …went out for cocktails and chinese food over the weekend.
  • …got engrossed in Graceling and didn’t complete anything for the Review copy clean up!


Reading

Finished: Graceling

Up Next: [Review pile] Panic or [TBR pile] Daughter of Smoke and Bone
(although I did say this last week and have yet to start either so in all honesty, most likely Fire)

  • …The family Game of Thrones watch has now reached season 3…

I had a controlled week in terms of requesting, just one book to add. I also bought some books for the Ninja Book Swap, so I’m counting that towards my book buying budget.
