Weekly Round-Up: Writing and watching
Another busy week, but overall it was fine. I hit 30k for NaNo, and started watching Doctor Who again (on season 6 at the moment, and can we please just talk about how ABSOLUTELY SQUAD GOALS Eleven, Amy, and Rory are???!! Seriously, those three are magic together. I wish they could always be the Doctor and companions).
Oh, and in other news, I've had to delete my Blog Roll in the sidebar because of space, etc (long story). But I've made a page you can find here where I've listed some of my favourite blogs. I'm still in the process of adding to it.
Posts of the week:
Still buddy-reading Heart of the Fae, and this week I also started Nevermoor :)
I am super excited about these books! I've heard so much about Lee Child's (and my Mum is a HUGE fan, so guess who grabbed the book to read it first?) and I'm also ecstatic to finally start The Mortal Instruments series. This is the 10th anniversary edition of City of Bones, so I really feel privileged to be able to start Clare's famous series with this copy <3
Lauryn talks IngramSpark vs Amazon for authors
Uma reviews The City of Brass
Emily talks Classics
I admit I'm not that excited about this sequel, mainly because it's been years since I read Harry Potter and I don't remember ever loving it. But I am excited to see Jude Law in the role of Dumbledore - I never thought I'd actually feel like swooning at the sight of that particular wizard... ;)
Starring Zac Efron, Zendaya, Michelle Williams, Rebecca Ferguson and Hugh Jackson, this movie looks and sounds amazing.
I am not a horror movie fan, but I love Emily Blunt and John Krasinski (as actors, as a couple) and I can't wait to see how they work together in this film.
I'm actually not so against this as everyone else seems to be. Depends on who they cast, though.
Here's another short, unedited excerpt from my NaNo novel:
How's your week been? What have you watched or read?
