SUNDAY FUNDAY: WEEK IN REVIEW [17]

Cristina over at Girl in the Pages started Sunday Funday as a way to recap the bookish (and not-so-bookish) things that have happened that week.

October 20 – 26, 2014

Yesterday, I started The Walking Dead TV show. I’ve watched three episodes so far. It’s interesting to see it come to life because I’m used to words with pictures in my head, but this already had pictures. I think I’m going to do a reaction post for each season as I finish. What do you guys think about that?

I don’t have much planned for this week except for the usual: Top Ten Tuesday, Waiting on Wednesday, and maybe a Teaser Tuesday, so this week will be a fly by the seat of my pants kind of week. 🙂

Books read:

This week, I finished and reviewed The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. Today, I started Get Happy by Mary Amato. I also read several issues of comics: TWD, Batman and Robin, Edward Scissorhands (which will be reviewed on WatchPlayRead this week), Batman Eternal, and more. I got to read Once Upon an Alphabet by Oliver Jeffers at work; it was amazing, of course. I’ll probably review that soon! I also finished rereading Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater as an audiobook. It was pretty great. I think I’m going to do a review of that soon as well.

TBR:

Yesterday was Halloween ComicFest. I had a pretty awesome haul from that.

I also bought the latest issues of TWD, Batman and Robin, Bodies, Wild’s End, and Trees and the first issue of Arkham Manor, which I’m looking forward to checking out.

From the library, I checked out Marie Lu’s The Young Elites and Meg Wolitzer’s Belzhar. I’m so excited to read this, especially The Young Elites. I’ve heard such amazing things! Oh yeah, I also checked out Every Day by David Levithan, which I’m reading for the Magnolia Book Award here in Mississippi. I’ve been wanting to read that one for a long time, so yay!

What you might’ve missed:

My first blog tour! I participated in the Mortal Enchantment Blog Tour (Mortal Enchantment is by the lovely Stacey O’Neale)

I reviewed The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

I’ve been reviewing the comic series Bodies by Si Spencer over on WatchPlayRead. Check out my review of Issue #3.

I’ve also been reviewing Gotham over on WPR. My latest review can be found HERE.

Non-bookish things I’m excited about:

Hmmm. I’ve pretty much been in a bookish-only world recently.

I know this is a little early, but I’m going to see The 1975 next month, and I AM REALLY EXCITED. So yeah, definitely looking forward to that.

What about you guys? What’s new with you?

  1. I finally broke down and ordered The Night Circus. Of course once it arrives, I’ll have to find time to read it. From the library: Burn by Nevada Barr. It’s #16 in her Anna Pigeon series. I was looking forward to it since it’s set in New Orleans, but it’s a bit of a disappointment so far. Too much side story that doesn’t involve Anna even though they’ll all come together later.
