The Weekly Progress is a type of wrap up post that happens every Sunday on The Sirenic Codex looking on the week that was.
I wasn't around the blog very much last week, and to be honest I don't really remember much of last week except that I read a pretty awesome book. So let's just move on to that.
What an amazing, incredible read. I adore this book. I got it from the library and I'm considering buying it to reread. This series is going to be huge.
I've heard so many good things, so I'm super psyched for this one!
On the Blog
First I wrote about reading about tragedy, which is something I've never felt really comfortable with.
Next, I reviewed ACID, which I thought was pretty meh, but others seem to have enjoyed.
Then, Mari picked Played for WoW, which seems a little in the Perfect Chemistry mold.
Mari then kicked off a new series of posts (we're using the terms "series" very loosely because I haven't started mine yet) where we'll be looking at different relationships in YA. We started with family.
Next, Mari reviewed Poison Dance.
The Week That Was
Not a very notable week, except that Red Rising was really good and I still can't get over that. I missed writing TWP last week because I went to a hockey game and saw my favourite team win 6-3, which was pretty awesome. Well, then they lost pretty miserably the next couple games, so I guess I'm back to normal.
Besides freaking out for a major accounting test, nothing really happened. This week is looking up though. First of all, GAME OF THRONES TONIGHT AHHH! I'm not sure if I'll be able to watch it live so I'm going to make sure to avoid Twitter. But I'm honestly so excited for Game of Thrones, or as I like to call it, The Best Show EVER.
Song of the Week
I listened to a lot of music this week, an insane amount of it new. It's actually strange because I have about five picks for Song of the Week. Festival season is coming, which means that everyone is creating new music and releasing it. Anyway, my pick is going to be Avicii. I don't give him the credit he deserves here, and I listened to this song and fell in love with it. It's a little different from what I usually pick because it has more of a string-ish focus. It sounds pretty organic, and it has no vocals unlike other Avicii songs so it probably won't be as popular, but the melodies are fantastic, imo. Definitely a moody, yet soothing song. Okay, here it is: Heart Upon My Sleeve!
