the weekend & other things.

Hi 🙂

I know I haven’t updated since Friday. I’ve been sick and still sick, sadly. I also really haven’t had any ideas what type of posts to do! So if you have any ideas of what you would like to see, let me know!

Basically, this weekend I took a million naps in the hopes to kick this cold, but that didn’t work out that well. I woke up today feeling even worse than I did all weekend. I’ve been taking medicine like crazy, but I don’t know if it’s really working. I did manage to finish The Wicked Will Rise last night. I’ll do a small (and by small I mean a few sentences) review of it in this post. I don’t like really doing reviews on books in a series other than the first book, but only because I am scared I might give something away!

The Wicked Will Rise by Danielle Paige
4 out of 5 stars.
“Faith: everyone knows it’s something you’re supposed to have, but it’s harder to put that into practice when your senses are telling you all hope is lost.”

Shelbie and I read this book together. which was exciting. Once she finishes it, we’ll hopefully be able to talk about it! Say “HI” to little Percy! Okay, so this book was really enjoyable and it was definitely better than the first book (Dorothy Must Die). There were a couple times when I wasn’t too into it, but not too many. Toward the end of the book I started to get annoyed with the book. I felt like it was starting over again, because of certain things that happened. That wasn’t really the case when it ended, but the ending left me a little confused. I am looking forward to the next book to see how it all comes together.

My cousin came over on Saturday to pick up Bella. I was watching her for two weeks while her and her family were on vacation. We went to get frozen yogurt, we always do that when she comes here. I got toasted marshmallow. I’m sure it tasted amazing, except I’m sick, so I couldn’t really taste anything that well, sigh. She also sent me a package (and it happened to get here the day she came) and it was of these 12 little books about The Doctor! 12 Doctors and a story about each one! There is a story written by all different authors. There is even a story written by Patrick Ness! 🙂 It also comes with 12 postcards and I plan to frame them an hang them in my living room. LOVELOVELOVE IT!

Bella, Dax, and ColbyJack.

I am currently reading Blood of My Blood (final book in the I Hunt Killers (Jasper Dent) series) and it’s so bittersweet. I am excited to see how the series ends, but I am sad that it is ending! I know I’ve gone on and on about this series in my blog over the last month and a half (SORRY!), but it’s so good! Barry Lyga is so amazing and has moved to the top of my list of favorite authors!

I have listened to zero audiobooks this month, which is so strange for me. I usually have at least a few of them finished by now! I haven’t been in the mood for them at all, which is sad. I have to finish The Order of the Phoenix this week though, because it’s due back in a few days. I wouldn’t really say I am in a reading slump, because I am enjoying all the books I am physically reading. Is there such thing as a listening slump? 😛

I think tomorrow I will do an e-book book haul, because I got so many e-books so far this month. I will leave you with a funny true story…

He’s so cute, so it’s okay. 😛

I hope you all have an awesome Monday! Bye! ❤

  1. Once again, I say that I hope you get well soon and that your sickness doesn’t last too long! I adore frozen yoghurt! And a short story about the Doctor written by Patrick Ness?! That’s like a dream come true! Great post! xoxo

    • Thank you! I feel like it’s a never ending cold, ugh!!
      Frozen yogurt is SO good!
      I’m excited to read all the short stories! It’ll be interesting to see all these authors takes on The Doctor and everything. 🙂
