The Weekly Progress: To The Edge of Insanity and Back

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

Howdy everyone, sorry for the disappearance. These past few weeks have been super hectic with P.E. and I trying to finish up all our projects and study for last minute tests that teachers seem to love dishing out. Last week was the summit of the craziness with both of has having 4 exams back to back. My life was literally: study, eat, study, sleep, study, write exam, study and repeat. However, as I'm writing this post now, the crazy exam week from hell has ended and we're starting to relax and tune our bodies to normal sleeping patterns!

Books Read:

I finally finished my first book of 2014, it took me a month but it's done and I enjoyed it very much. Look out for my review this week.

Currently Reading:

17899846Super excited to be reading this. I really love fast paced thrillers like this one so I hope it continues to be enjoyable. 





On The Blog:

This weeks content was largly written by P.E. and she did a wonderful job. I'll try to pick up a little more of the weight off her this month for sure.

The week began, with P.E.'s review of Speed of Light which she was disappointed in.

Cover Wars is featuring, Of Neptune vs. Sublime. It seems that most people find Sublime weird/creepy but that isn't stopping it from gathering votes.

My Waiting on Wednesday for this week was Dark Metropolis which seems to be a popular choice.

The trailer to John Green's The Fault in Our Stars also came out and P.E. wrote about it. I agree with her in that it looks amazing!

P.E. then wrote about Robot's and how they aren't her thing. I'm quite a fan of P.E.'s posts so I'm going to go ahead and recommend her other post of similar nature, Zombies: Not My Thing.

P.E. then reviewed Unbreakable which let her own.

Finally, P.E. wrapped up the week with her post on reading and reading speeds. I'm personally quite a slow reader despite how hard I try to read fast sometimes, I just like taking it slow. Maybe that's why I can remember stories even years later.

What's Up:

So as I was saying in the beginning, this week we had a super busy week but thankfully, it's over now. Yesterday, P.E. and I along with a couple of friends went to the Rideau Canal skateway and had a blast skating having Maple Taffy and Beavertails!
