Weekly Round-Up: Reading and reading and reading


Hope you've all had a good week? 
On Monday, I went to the cinema with my cousin and we watched Beauty and the Beast WHICH I WAS  BEYOND EXCITED TO SEE! My review will be up tomorrow. 

I'm hoping to post every day this week, but I have a big science test on Friday so we'll see how things go. But I do have a lot of reviews lining up...

I'm buddy-reading Caraval with Caitlin @ Quills & Coffee and unfortunately we're both very disappointed with it so far :(  But I'm loving The Lost Knight, and A Tragic Kind of Wonderful is very good too.








EEEEK!! I GOT THIS BEAUTY AND I'M FREAKING OUT BECAUSE THE HYPE IS UNREAL AND IT LOOKS SO AMAZING!

  1. Nice! Been seeing that one around! Totally different cover than the US one! This one looks wayyy more serious. Not sure if it's fitting or not since I don't read contemporaries. Hope you enjoy it!

    Here's my STS

    Have a GREAT day!

    1. It does look a lot more serious, but I personally prefer it to the other edition :)
      Thanks for stopping by, Jessica!

  2. So jealous, I haven't seen Beauty and the Beast yet! For some reason we just never got around to it. I guess I'll just wait for Netflix! I was really excited about Caraval when I hear about it last year, but I just haven't take the time to get a copy from my library yet.

      I hope you get to read Caraval soon. So far, I've found it really disappointing, but hopefully you'll like it :(
      Have a lovely week, Angela!

  3. I hope you enjoy The Hate U Give! It's a really good bok :-)
    Caraval seems intriguing, but there are so many negative reviews, so I'm not sure about reading it..

  4. Can't wait to read your thoughts on Beauty and the Beast. I loved it! I thought the casting was perfection, I loved what they changed and what stayed the same. Just a wonderful live adaptation. The reviews I've seen for Caraval have been all over the place. Really mixed reviews. Sure hope it turns around for you.

  8. Aww thank you for linking to my post! That's so lovely of you! <3
    I've heard some pretty disappointing things about Caraval, so I'm steering clear of it for now, but I do hope you enjoy it! It always sucks if a book doesn't live up to our expectations. Also, yay for Beauty and the Beast!!! I ADORED it and really hope you did too so we can flail about it together! XD

  10. I'm in a Game of Thrones binge rewatch at the moment which is going to take up a lot of time and I'm doing a lot of writing about the series...family trees, episode reviews, character analysis etc into my Stark 'Winter is Coming' journal! It'll be a helpful guide to remind my dad who everyone is and what has previously happened. Even reading is taking a back seat to that! Good luck with your test!
