Weekly Round-Up: Reading and Watching


It's been a really good week for me :) I'm on top of school, of blogging (with the help of my diary, I've planned every day into the second week of March. Is it a bit too much?!) and I also read a lot of books this week.
This coming week there'll be a post up every day, with a lot of reviews. And I've decided not to start any new books until March because of the busy schedule.
This week I'll be reviewing The Year I Met You, Time Between Us, The Echoes of Love, and a film I saw yesterday: The Great Wall (2016).


Valentine's Week Posts:


Romantic Films To Watch 
My Favourite Fictional Couples
Waiting on Wednesday: Table 19
What I Love To See In Romance
The Blog Squad - Part 2
My Favourite Romantic Songs 

This was an especially exciting week because I received these two beauties from their publishers!! I requested them a few weeks ago, and was so shocked when they arrived on my doorstep! I CANNOT WAIT TO START THEM <3




I also received Milijun from its author:   




And I bought Ocean's 13





I better go and make lunch for my family (the usual Sunday macaroni and cheese ;).  And thanks to staying up till 3 last night watching series 5 of Once Upon A Time, I'm yawning now too.

Well, it was worth it.......I have serious CaptainSwan feels (is there no limit to how far those two will go for each other?!) and my heart aches with the beauty of their love. *gazes wistfully into distance*   
WELL.

How's your week been? What have you been reading or watching?

  2. Getting new books is awesome! Three Dark Crowns sounds wonderful, although I am currently reading Heartless and hating it. That cover is so horrible! I am wondering though, how did you manage to get review copies since the books have already been published? And scheduling is always wonderful, I can never do it, but I am thinking of trying it out!

    1. It is! Yeah, it really does, I can't wait to start it.
      Oh no!! I'm so sorry about that; I've seen a lot of mixed reviews, but I'm hoping it'll work for me. Fingers crossed ;)
      Well, since they're still considered "new releases" I thought there was a chance the publishers might still want some publicity in the form of a review, etc. So I requested them, and got accepted :) To be honest, I very rarely request ARCs. Just new releases.
      I love it!! Haha okay :)
      Have a lovely week ahead!

  3. I've been watching my Bering Sea Gold dvds and moseying through some apocalypse reading. I plan to do a bit more of both tonight. I'm way behind in my blogging this weekend!

  5. I'm so happy for you that you received those physical ARCs, Amy, well done! :) I've started to watch season 4 of Luther and also I'm rewatching Daredevil (Netflix) with my boyfriend (he hasn't seen it yet).

  7. Glad you had a great week! And being ahead into March is awesome! That cover of Three Dark Crowns is awesome too, and I like the Heartless one also (haven't seen that one).

    will be curious to see what you thought of The Great Wall, I've heard different things.

    1. Thanks! Hehe, it is in a way, I guess ;)
      Yeah it's awesome! I'm still not sure what I think of the Heartless one, though. It's definitely unusual :)

      My review will be up on Friday. It was exciting, but not great :(

      Have a good week ahead!

  15. That sounds like a wonderful week! I wish I could say the same about my school work. I still need to read Heartless, but it's so cool seeing a different cover for it. Happy reading!

  16. Ooh haven't seen that cover for Heartless before, it is so different from the hardback editions I have seen. I am with you on the CaptainSwan feels, I am almost finished Season 5, not sure I want to watch the final few episodes, I hate waiting in-between seasons especially if we get those dramatic season cliff hangers!

    1. It is very different! I can't decide whether I like it or not, lol :)
      Yay!!! *high five* So glad to meet another fan, that's awesome :)
      Lol so true! Those are the worst!

    2. I am undecided too it reminds me a bit of The Vincent Boys cover, heartless seems to have so many different covers my personal fav has to be the 'naked' hardback edition.

  17. AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't wait to see what you make of those two. That cover of Heartless is gorgeous by the way!!!!!! Congrats on the publisher approvals!

    Chat more in the week!
