Weekly Round-Up: Reading and Watching

It's been an excellent reading and watching week! I've watched Miss. Sloane and Kong: Skull Island (review of Kong will be up on Thursday) and finished three books as well.  Towards the end of the week I've also been writing more - not plotting, just writing random scenes for practice. And I am loving it.   

My family's also been sick this week, so I've been doing most of the cooking. Last night we got this ready mix Malva pudding pack and I was about to make it until I realised I needed jam. Well, my hunger got the best of me and I ended up making it without jam. And it worked and tasted amazing!
Just some random cooking news ;)    

Posts of the week: 

Book Review: CINDER
Book Review: THE 100
Film Review: MISS. SLOANE

I loved the first book in this series, and so far I'm enjoying this one as well :)   

Finished these three books this week as well.
