The Weekly Progress is a type of wrap up post that happens every Sunday at The Sirenic Codex looking on the week that was.
This week, I spent a lot of time exploring the health care system. Trust me, it's not something I'm interested in the slightest, but between grandparents, my aunt, and my parents, there was a lot of doctors I visited. This is not normal for me because I try to never visit the doctor unless it's urgent, or my mom drags me by threatening to take away my cellphone. *shrugs*
Really liked The 5th Wave, I was a bit disappointed in Fire & Flood which was much lighter than I expected it to be, and Queen of Someday was a nice read. Thanks to NetGalley for allowing me to read Queen of Someday, which was my first NetGalley approval!
The latter, I took a break on. I think I just didn't like some of the decisions made by Hillary, and I had to give it some time. I've barely started Stolen, but I've heard lots of good things, especially from the girls We Heart YA.
Acquisitions! Stacking the Shelves!
Hosted at Tynga's Reviews.
I thought I may as well combine the books I acquired in TWP. This time, they're all ebooks from the library
because I was too lazy to walk to pick up actual books because I was busy.
I'm not sure if I'll end up reading all of these, but I'd love to know which of them are the best!
On the Blog
Do you ever just see a book and know intuitively that you'll love it? I call that, The Siren's Call.
Mari's WoW pick was Better Than Perfect, and I want to read it too. It's the type of story that appeals to both of us as we're starting our university experience!
We introduced a maybe-semi-regular feature, Thusrday Thoughts, and touched on the importance of designs, reading requirements, NetGalley, and fairy tales.
Then, Mari did a review for a DNF, Before You.
Generally, Mari and I try to space out our negative reviews so we're not all negative one week. The next few weeks are booked up though because of the extra time to blog, which works because I'm vacationing soon!
The Week That Was
I was supposed to go on a hot air balloon ride, which didn't happen because the weather got messed up. Other than that, lots of vising clinics for different things, and frankly, I'm really not at all into biology (probably my least favourite science of them all!) so I didn't enjoy the visits, even if they weren't for me. In particular, I was struggling not to flee from the blood test centre. *shudders*
Song of the Week
Whenever I'm hurt, it's this song I will listen to. It's perfectly heartbreaking and it makes me feel allll the feelings. The music matches the lyrics, and it's a song full of moments. The desperation of the lyrics, with the music just makes it a phenomenal song, and it's without a doubt a classic. I recommend listening to this one with earphones, with the song loud so you can really feel all the subtleties.
