The Weekly Progress: Easter 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.

This post is being written exceptionally late by TWP standards because I've spent the last few hours trying to delete a bunch of malware off the laptop I'm currently using, which is not my regular. Almost nothing in the world irritates me as much as malfunctioning technology. Anyway, on to the recap!

Books Read

Both were enjoyable. The latter is a book I won't review, so I'll just let you all know that Heroes of Olympus is one of my favourite series. By now, I hope that everyone realizes how much I adore Riordan's Greek and Roman worlds.

Currently Reading

My accounting teacher gave this one to read. I don't really read these types of books so I don't know what to expect. Still, I suppose diversifying my bookshelf is never a bad idea, right?

On the Blog

The week started off with my review of Cruel Beauty. (Spoiler: I really liked it!)

Next, Mari picked The Young Elites as her WoW.

Mari then touched on a rather weird topic. Feet on YA book covers! I never noticed it until she commented on it, but it's really bizarre to see feet on any cover. Does it really sell the book?

Libraries have always been a really big part of my life, and I just wanted to say that libraries are awesome.

Finally, we ended the week a little sadly with a not so happy review: my thoughts on Goddess

The Week That Was

It's been a decent week, and the weekend has been pretty great so far. I sleep late on weekdays (well, late for me) and then I binge sleep on weekends. So far, the long weekend has been very relaxing. I watched Divergent with my family, and I was so proud of my mom when, upon seeing Four for the first time, she said "Wow, he's really cute!" Good taste runs in the family, I suppose. :p 

Beyond that, I had a really great lava cake the other day and now I really want to make one on my own. I've found some simple, yet tasty recipes, and who knows, maybe I can actually make something! I love watching cooking shows on TV (current favourite is Masterchef Canada [Team Eric!] because this season of Hell's Kitchen is too much drama) and it's amazing seeing what people are capable of making. Also, I can't live my whole life without knowing how to cook, especially seeing as I'm an incredibly picky eater. So maybe I'll give it a shot and I'll post a picture next week. 

Song of the Week

THIS SONG IS SO GOOD. Let's ignore the absolutely ridiculous music video and instead bask in the atmosphere of this trap remix of Katy Perry's Dark Horse featuring Juicy J by PHYNX. I love this song so much. Besides the really catchy tune, it just feels sexy and daring. Like, it's slow and builds up very nicely. The original song is already trap-ish so I love that as much as this remix, but I like the melodic accents. It's a beautiful sound.

Enjoy! And have a great week! And happy Easter to those that celebrate it!


  1. That trap remix is so, so fab. Oh, and you went to see Divergent? Did you like it? I feel so apathetic toward the whole franchise that I need to know if anyone really liked it... haha. Interesting that your accounting teacher rec'd you a novel! (It is a novel, right?) Let us know how you like it. :)

  2. Sophie's World was highly recommended to me by my philopsophy teacher on high school, even though I haven't read it yet...
    YAY for sleeping in! ;)

  3. Yay, mom! Theo James is soooo fine. :)

    Have a great week, ladies.
