In its place I'm reading The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa and I've been enjoying it so far. Love the idea, the action and the fast pacing is just what I need.
I'm also planning on continuing with my manga reread. I've been slowly working my way through and savouring the Sand Chronicles by Hinako Ashihara. I'm on volume 4 and the story is becoming more and more intricate and heart wrenching from volume to volume as the conflict builds.
On the BlogWe started off the week with my (Mari's) post, Standalones Reading List, which is exactly what the title suggests; a list of standalones I recommend and some I plan to read.
On Tuesday we had a new Cover Wars, this time pitching Flights and Chimes and Mysterious Times against another beautiful cover, The Winner's Curse. If you haven't already, head on over and vote for your favourite!
Next we have my review of This is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith. Sadly, I didn't find it as enjoyable as I would've liked.
P.E. then did a very popular and rather hilarious post (IMO) called, Zombies: Not My Thing. What do you think about a zombie boyfriend? Sexy/icky?
Lastly, we have P.E.'s review of The Color's of Rain, an interesting new sci-fi/thriller about prostitutes in space.
Book/Movie:Hands down the most addicting/exciting thing about this week was the amazing Divergent trailer.
*Fan girl squeal!!*
I really liked it. It looks like they have decided to stick to the book and focus on bringing it to life which is what I look for in a movie adaptation. My favourite scene was a show stopper by none other than, Four!!
A part of me died and went to heaven right around here.
I was unsure about how Theo James would do as Four due to the age different etc. With this trailer he has put all those contradictions to the side. Now that he is all dressed up and in character, I can see it and I'm really happy.
Here's some more awesomeness! You could say I'm a tiny bit overly excited (^_^)
Now for some more blog related news, we finally opened our own Facebook page. This decision has been in the making for a while but me being lazy and Facebook not being either of our favourite social networking sites meant it kept being postponed.
The page is dedicated to this blog and I will be running it with occasional interjection by P.E. There will be links to blog posts, interesting tidbits, random videos and fun stuff posted there so we hope you join us there as well!
Relaxation has been the main goal for this week. I finally finished my summer job which left me the last week of August and also the last week of summer to enjoy. I didn't do much to enjoy but I think I did a lot of relaxing. Sleep late, have brunch everyday, blog, YouTube = fulfilling week. Sadly, next week is school so I've been spending a lot of time mourning the end of the summer.
How was your week?
