Let's start with the book talk. All covers link to Goodreads.
Two books! Not my best week, but considering how little free time I had, I'm very happy with myself. Both books had good writing and were enjoyable, although 17 & Gone wasn't really my type of read. Just One Day has made me super excited for Just One Year!
This is one of the first books for review The Sirenic Codex ever got, so I'm really hoping I like it. So far it's entertaining and very easy to read.
The Week That Was
Schools started for both Mari and I on Tuesday. We're both seniors now so we're a little swamped with work, especially when it comes to Math class. I've ditched science classes so beyond math, school isn't too bad. I actually may be one of the strange people that likes school: I took eight classes when they recommend six just because I like learning new things.
What school has meant is that I haven't been able to finish a single blog post. I've started a few, but finished none. However, I have written a couple reviews so it's not all bad. Getting the posts formatted and ready seems to be the problem. It's very hard to balance school and blogging, but I'll be doing my best!
You may have noticed this week that Mari and I have been posting blogs at different times. We're not home in the mornings and neither of us has a computer class so we've been experimenting with different strategies. I hope nobody has been put off by it!
Anyway, the week started off with a discussion on spoilers with me taking an extreme position for once: I detest spoilers.
Tuesday means a new Cover Wars and this week we had Perfect Ruin face off against The Winner's Curse. You can still vote for that! (Hint: Check the sidebar!)
Mari shared what she was waiting on on Wednesday, and it turns out to be the sequel to a book I've never read that sounds really good.
Mari then reflected a bit on the books she read this summer. It's a pretty cool roundup. I almost stole her idea and did one of my own, but, as I said, I've finished no posts in the last week.
Can you believe Best of Saturday has been going on for seven weeks now? That means you should totally check it out and link up your favourite blog posts of the week.
Song of the Week
Okay, so maybe I wasn't really listening to anything this week. Whatever. That doesn't mean I shouldn't spend twenty minutes on YouTube searching for a song I like to post here. This song by Hardwell is definitely not new, but it's new to me. The melody is infectious and makes me want to dance and that's totally my type of song. Here's Call Me A Spaceman by Hardwell ft. Mitch Crown.
Now you're ready for the rest of your weekend. Have a great one!
