The Weekly Progress: Too Many Posts, Too Little Time Edition

Hey guys! The Weekly Progress is a sort of wrap up post created by me (P.E.) that reflects on the week that was. It's a little random and all over the place, but it shows my personality so I usually have fun writing it. As always, all covers link to Goodreads.

Books Read

I have reviews written for all three books so I won't say too much but let's just say I had a pretty great reading week. Lots of action and darkness- definitely my type of reads.

Too Many Posts

This week wasn't the best week in terms of work. I was very lazy but today, I realized something a little crazy. I've been blogging for a long time now and I always worried about content. Did I have enough 'original' content? Was I posting enough? It got to the point where about 3 posts a week was hard enough. This problem has completely disappeared on TSC. What this means is that we'll probably do multiple posts on some days just because we have so many.

This also means that I'm challenging myself to improve as a reviewer. It's hard to have passionate thoughts on every book but I'm trying to make every review distinctive. I used to write reviews very formulaically and I still do that when I have nothing to fall back on. Now, I'm trying to improve my writing and become more creative.

What I'm up to

This week has been all about learning two different things: code, through and learning how to drive. I've always wondered why this isn't something that's covered in YA because it's a huge deal in my life. It's also hard and frustrating sometimes (curse you reverse parking!) although that probably should be expected. It's worth it, though. I think.

Posts to Check Out

Mari and I both had our fair share of posts. I started April from Good Books and Good Wine's 15 day Book Blogger Challenge so I'll have much more posts for that soon (I'm a little behind). I've already done a few:
Day 1Day 2Day 3, and Day 4.

Mari also wrote a variety of posts. First, she spotlighted The Chemical Garden Trilogy by Lauren DeStefano. I've actually only read the first so I need to get a move on and finish the series! They have such beautiful covers. There was also a WoW post featuring Simone Elkeles' Wild Cards. She had me at Simone Elkeles, who's books are kind of my guilty pleasures. Mari also reviewed Reboot, which she was super excited for. Sadly, it failed to meet her expectations. 

Song of the Week 

Okay, this song is so upbeat that I can't help but dancing to it every time I listen to it. It's insanely catchy. I adore it and it's been on all this week so I hope you guys like it too! Enough with the suspense: One Minute by Krewella. 

Have a great week everyone! 



  1. I like your point about learning to drive in YA-that was a very angst-filled experience for me and I've never really seen it dealt with in any YA books.

    1. Ugh I know. It's stressing me out way too much, just because I really want to pass my test on the first go.
