Weekly Round-Up: Reading and switching to Disqus


It's been a good week. School was actually bearable, I managed to get reviews up on my blog, and I had calamari and chips two nights in a row. There's this amazing fish and chips place near us, and getting from them is always an incredible treat. Their chips and calamari is TO DIE FOR. 


Posts of the week: 
Book Review: WHEN DIMPLE MET RISHI
Book Review: FINAL GIRLS

 

Yes, I'm still reading The City of Brass! It's not improving :( 
I've also started Into the Water, and although it didn't initially win me over, I'm loving it now. 



Melissa talks writing Backstory for your Characters 

Lauren reviews Spindle Fire




Aneta shares her blog tour post for The Midnight Dance

Kyra reviews Ink and Bone

Shane reviews Remember Me Always




The two got married in a private wedding ceremony on the island of Ibiza, and I'm so happy for them.  Let's hope it lasts - Hollywood doesn't need more heartbreak :( 

Jessica Chastain, Margot Robbie, Laura Dern, Reese Witherspoon, Tessa Thompson, Jennifer Lawrence and more were the leading ladies of ELLE 2017. They shared their stories of sexual assault in the film industry, passionately spoke up for women's rights, equality, and minorities, and demanded change.    

Check out Margot Robbie and Sebastian Stan who're both starring.   




Quick bit of news: I'm not going to be participating in the Waiting on Wednesday meme for a few months. As much as I love participating, Wednesday is the busiest day of the week for me and I often don't have time to check out everyone else's posts. So I'm taking a break.  



I'm finally switching to the Disqus commenting system. It's been a long time coming (like, a few months long) but I think I've made up my mind. The main reason I'm switching is because of the lack of interaction via the default blogger system; when I reply to comments, I'm not actually interacting with people because they don't get notifs for replies, and so it feels almost pointless. There's no conversation happening, which I don't like. Hopefully that'll change now :)  


What's new with you? What are you reading at the moment? Did you have a good week?
