The Weekly Progress: Life Goes On Edition

The Weekly Progress is a type of wrap up post that happens every Sunday on The Sirenic Codex looking on the week that was.

Books Read

Ghost Hand was for review and I ended up enjoying overall, although there were a few issues. Don't Breathe A Word was recommended by Mari and it was fun and I think I finished it in one sitting, so it was good too. 

Currently Reading

I'm actually on the first few pages so I can't comment very much about this book at all. 

The Week That Was

Twas a busy week that absolutely flew by with more school. Some big assignments, some procrastination, and an essay I still haven't started summarize my school week. 

It was also a pretty big sports week for me. I'm an enormous fan of hockey and this week was my favourite team's training camp. To say it was a turbulent offseason would be an understatement, and I'm looking forward to seeing the new changes on the team.

Elizabeth Wein!

I live in Ottawa where people are lovely but authors (at least, YA authors I read) very rarely come. Elizabeth Wein is coming, however, and I'm super excited for that! Mari will read Code Name Verity for the first time and I'll do a reread in preparation for the event. It goes without saying that we'll have a recap and maybe some live tweeting. I'll be volunteering for the event (AKA best volunteer job EVER) and it should be fun. If you live in Ottawa and want to see the cool authors coming around this fall/winter, check out Teen Author Fest.

Blog Recap

After some technical troubles, we got the review up for Don't Look Now by Michelle Gagnon!

I never was much of a DNFer but recently, that's changed. Check out my all time DNF roundup. 

Saturday, Mari double posted with the requisite Best of Saturday and showed off all the new books she got.

Song of the Week

How could it not be Zedd and Hayley Williams' new song? Hello: new music! And this song is SO catchy and totally my genre. Also, I love following Zedd on Twitter (he's pretty funny) so I want this song to succeed! 

Hope you enjoyed it! Have a greet weekend!
