Review for Poisoned Apples: Poems For You, My Pretty by Christine Heppermann (ARC)
Review for Alienated by Melissa Landers
What I read this week:
Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins
Made for You by Melissa Marr
Famous in Love by Rebecca Serle
What I watched this week:
Capote: after reading In Cold Blood I got interested about Truman Capote as well as the murder case the book focuses on. This movie was brilliant; so melancholic and hopeless and sad.
The Wrestler: For my possible dissertation research (I'm going in with two ideas, the political one is the other)
Neighbors: Shirtless Zac Efron. Enough said.
The Fault in Our Stars: SO SAD. I cried A LOT.
A Long Way Down: I didn't like this one AT ALL. The single thing that made me watch it til the end was the beautiful face of Aaron Paul.
The Fountain: Also for my dissertation research.
From TV shows I watched some Arrested Development, some Friends plus I started watching Once Upon a Time in Wonderland, Arrow and My So-Called Life.
In other news:
So bout of books was kind of a fail... AGAIN. I did read two and a half books, but I won't bother with counting the pages or the hours I read because the total would be nowhere near my goal. I won't be too hard on myself about this though because I managed to see some friends this week. I also watched films for my other possible dissertation topic and caught up with some films I've been wanting to see for ages. So all's good.
As you can probably see from my plan for next week, there will be a little less activity at the blog next week, which means that it will also take me a little more time to answer to comments. I only have about three weeks left at home here in in Finland before I have to travel back to university in Scotland and I want to spend as much of that time out of the Internet as possible. I use so much Internet while I'm at uni that I can do all of that then. Staying away from Internet does not mean that I won't watch shows and read books, it just means that I will not update about them so frequently. I will still do my Sunday post next week though!
This week on Instagram:
|Finally reading Isla was great because the gap between the second and the final book in the trilogy was SO LONG. The wait was totally worth it though.|
|Capote was AMAZING! I've always held Philip Seymour-Hoffman in high regard , but my admiration for him reached whole new levels now that I've seen this film.|
|Once again hanging out in my Ariel leggins.|
|Taking advantage of the fresh blueberries by making a blueberry pancake. So yummy.|
