Weekly Wrap-Up: 11/14 – 11/20

So, a couple of weeks ago, I posted a book haul/reading update thing. And it taught me that I shouldn’t do book hauls. Not cuz I don’t get books every week or so and read them, but cuz I can’t keep a schedule when it comes to reading books.

Also, sometimes I DNF them and stuff. Yeah…

So, I decided to do it at the end of the week instead. That way I don’t have to commit to specific stuff ahead of time. And, without further ado, let’s get started!

Monday 11/14: Majestic Monday #2

This week on Monday, I did a Majestic Monday, as usual. This week I highlighted Savage Lands by Stacey Marie Brown. It’s another one of those sexy faerie books, a la Sarah J. Maas, and it had good reviews. And a great cover.

As I discuss in the cover review, I really liked the contrast between the gold and the green on the cover. As well as the font of the title and design in general.

Tuesday 11/15: Mickey7 Review

Here, I did a book review. This one was on a book that had been languishing in the back of my mind for a few months, and that I was kinda sitting on the review for a while. It was Mickey7 by Edward Ashton, a sassy, sci-fi adventure, featuring both humor and existentialism.

I know; it’s quite the combination it has there. But Ashton really balances it well. Oh, and it’s apparently gonna be a movie, I guess? With Robert Pattinson. Yeah… Anyway, check out my review.

Wednesday 11/16: Shelf Control #3

For this week’s Shelf Control – on Wednesday, as per usual – I focused on An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir. This is a book that I’ve had for years, but has spent that time just sitting on one of my bookshelves.

It’s one of those that I bought on a whim, cuz the summary seemed slightly interesting, and it had good reviews. But, it’s also one I’m not sure I’ll ever get around to reading. Find out why.

Thursday 11/17: Serpent & Dove Retrospective Review

On Thursday, I did another Reading Retrospective. This time, it was on Serpent & Dove by Shelby Mahurin. Going through it again cemented my feelings that it’s an okay book, but it’s mostly guilty-pleasure-romance.

It’s not really that bad – though I do have Opinions on certain characters – but it isn’t great either. (Blood & Honey, it’s sequel, was not so okay, on the other hand. More on that later.)

Friday 11/18: The Murderbot Diaries Review

At long last, I’ve finally gotten around to doing my The Murderbot Diaries review. It wasn’t a long time coming or anything, but it has been a few weeks since I’ve finished Fugitive Telemetry, so it definitely took a bit to get done.

All I have to say is, I definitely recommend this series. If this little section doesn’t convince you, then please check out my review.

Saturday 11/19: Error 404 Not Found

Uhhh… Just pretend there’s something here. Yeah…

Sunday 11/20: Weekly Wrap-up & Goals for the Coming Week

So yeah, this is all the stuff I posted this week. Not everything I wanted to do, unfortunately, but that’s life. Gonna try to get more of what I want to do done, but we’ll see what happens with the holiday weekend and all that.

Goals for Next Week: 11/21 – 11/27
  • Post 2 or 3 book reviews
  • Post 1 or 2 retrospectives
  • Majestic Monday
  • Shelf Control
  • …Maybe something Thanksgiving themed?

Annnd, that’s all I’ve got for this week! See you all again, next time!
