Here we are at the end of another week(end)! 10 more working days before a week off, I’m so excited!
Books of the Week
This week I finished 3 more books, bringing me to 13 this month! I finally finished reading Downton Abbey: A Celebration. As a huge fan of Downton, I totally loved this one. Full of beautiful pictures and inside information. I also read my first arc, The Girl in the Ice by Robert Bryndza. A fantastic murder mystery with a strong female lead, highly recommend this book. I also finished off the Red Queen short stories in Cruel Crown by Victoria Aveyard. I’m currently reading my arc of All the Rage by Courtney Summers. WOW. I’m about 2/3 of the way through it, having started last night and I am blown away by the depth and emotions in this novel. I already know this will be a 5* review. It’s a heart-wrenching story. I want to scoop Romy up in my arms and protect her from the world.
Films of the Week
I’ve only watched one movie this week (I accidentally watched a ton of Gossip Girl episodes again). I chose A Walk in the Woods which had been on my to-watch list mainly because Emma Thompson is in it. It was an okay film. There were moments where I laughed a little, but I didn’t love this movie and probably wouldn’t watch it again. For me, it needed more Emma Thompson as her scenes were probably the best for me. Although, of course, I am highly biased.
TV of the Week
For anyone who has checked out my watch-list, you’ll know I have a fairly long list of shows that I watch. Due to being busy in the week, the weekend is my dedicated ‘TV-catch-up’ time. This week I had the following shows to catch up on:
- Chicago Fire (S04e12)
- Girlfriends Guide to Divorce (S02e09)
- New Girl (S05E04)
- Pretty Little Liars (S06E13)
- Suits (S05E11)
I loved having Suits back on my screen this week. I binge watched the whole thing in about a week last summer after my brother recommended it and so it was nice to sit down together and watch the 5b premier. Donna is my favourite character, I’m a sucker for a strong female!
I also continued with my binge watch of Gossip Girl and I’m now almost finished with Season 2. I really need Dan and Serena to sort themselves out and get back together properly (no spoilers please!!).
