Sunday Weekly Wrap Up (29)

Sunday weekly wrap up

You might have noticed that this is about the third week in a row that I’e included a Monday gif. There are just so many awesome ones out there you’re going to have to deal with it. And although you don’t need another reminder that tomorrow (or the day after, depending on where you live!) is Monday . . .

What’s happened this week?

This week has been fairly uneventful. More study for the HSC, more reading, writing, and procrastinating — oh, and, my parents entrusted me with cooking dinner. (By “cooking dinner” I mean stirring a pot occasionally and making a batch of brown rice.) But I didn’t burn anything, so thumbs up for me! (The rice turned out gross. I used the wrong one.)

So today I posted a (INTERNATIONAL!) giveaway. You should totally enter.

No Stacking the Shelves this week, though I’ll be greedily eyeing your own piles of books. At the moment I just have too many books to get through (I am literally reading three books at the same time right now) so I restrained myself. I was tempted to buy The Iron Trial by Cassandra Clare & Holly Black, but the smart, rational part of my brain won out. It usually doesn’t.

BUT I DID RECEIVE HEIR OF FIRE. (I’m not counting this as a Stacking the Shelves because one book seems pretty lame.)

But still! Look at it, in all its badass gloriousness!

I’m also planning on doing some more photography posts. (You can read the FIRST POST HERE.) Let me know if this is something you want to see more of! As it’s spring here in Australia, the flowers are blooming, which means that snap-happy Kara will now proceed to walk around with a camera in hand for the next few months, reading to take pictures.

Here’s a quick recap of my posts this week on the blog.

Monday — Book Review: Falling Into Place by Amy Zhang [4/5 stars]

Tuesday — Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Underrated Books/Authors in YA

Wednesday — Writerly Post Wednesday: Novel Length

Thursday — Book Review: More Than This by Patrick Ness [4/5 stars]

Friday — Friday Rambles: A Curious Question For Bloggers Who Are Also Writers

Saturday — Book Review: The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by Catherynne M. Valente [3/5 stars]

Sunday — [Blog Tour!] Review & Giveaway (OPEN INTERNATIONALLY) — Eren by Simon P. Clark [4/5 stars]

How has your week been?

  1. YES MORE PHOTOGRAPHY POSTS PLEASE. And yayyyy for Heir of Fire!! I finished reading it this week. Oh, my gosh. So freakin’ awesome. And I can so relate to the Monday gifs – studies of religion exam tomorrow, eek! But this time next week I’ll be blissfully free of school :)

  2. It’s always interesting to see what other book bloggers get up to! Best of luck for the HSC, I’m sure you’ll do great :)

  3. You have the same cover as me in the UK! Isn’t it gorgeous. I can’t wait to read it. Hope you enjoy it. :) I know what you mean with restraining yourself. I done that a few times this week, I always go in a bookstore wherever I am, I pick the book up…then reluctantly put the book down. Hate it. Keep on going though, Kara! Love your photography, I’m a budding photography but I haven’t done it so long, busy at work. :( Great post! :)

  4. I love taking photos, it’s such fun–and springtime is such a great time for it! Enjoy yourself!

    Also, I can totally relate to the whole too-many-books-on-my-plate thing. I actually had a chance to go to the library this week but consciously stayed home because I knew I’d bring back a mountain of books and I already have TOO MANY TO READ AT HOME, gosh darn it!

  5. Yay, you got Heir Of Fire. I got this one too and can’t wait to read it. I just finished Crown Of Midnight (a.k.a Crown Of Awesome) and can’t wait to see what happens next. Good luck with the studying.

  6. I can’t wait to see more of your photography posts! No fair that it’s turning into spring where you are. For me, the days are just getting colder and colder. That does come in handy during cross country practice, though, since I don’t always have to run in sweltering heat now.
