Weekly Catch-Up: Issue #8

weeklycatchup

It’s time for another weekly update! Keep reading to find out the books I read this past week as well as what I plan on reading next! I also mention both films and television series that I have been watching. But first, let’s start with a quick life update!


Life

I won’t lie, my life hasn’t been particularly exciting lately…but I’ll fill you in anyway. 10 years ago, my neighbour had family from London, England visiting. Their daughter was my age and we became friends instantly. Last week, she came back! We hadn’t seen each other in 10 years, but it was like nothing had changed! On Monday we went to grab all you can eat Sushi because apparently that isn’t a thing in England. It was the third time I had sushi within a week, but I was totally down. She was leaving to go back home the following day, so after  we ate we chilled for a bit before saying our goodbyes! It was really nice to see her again!

Other than that, nothing else really happened until I went to see Wonder Woman on Friday! So here’s the thing…I never really had any intention of watching it. I’m not a fan of the DC Cinematic Universe and I figured I just wouldn’t like it. But then the hype was real and a co-worker wanted to see it. We got out of work early on Friday and decided what the heck and went to see it. Turns out I loved it just as much as everyone else! I may try and write a movie review, stay tuned!


Books

Recently Finished: Saints & Misfits by S.K. Ali & Our Dark Duet by Victoria Schwab

My reading has picked up a bit this week and I finished reading both Saints and Misfits by S.K. Ali as well as Our Dark Duet by Victoria Schwab! I enjoyed both, but neither really lived up to the hype for me unfortunately. However, that seems to be a very unpopular opinion as a lot of people really enjoyed both of these reads!


Upcoming reads: Rebel Spring by Morgan Rhodes & Words In Deep Blue by Cath Crowley

I really need to get back to the Falling Kingdoms series and I think that it’s finally time! I can’t wait to start book two soon! While participating in the Try A Chapter Book Tag, I also read the first chapter of Words In Deep Blue by Cath Crowley and I think that may be another upcoming read for me! It seems like something I would breeze right through!

Recently Watched: Wonder Woman

Guys! I finally watched something! I’ve been seriously lacking in the movie watching department lately, but I was finally able to go out and see Wonder Woman! As mentioned above, I initially was a little hesitant about watching Wonder Woman, but then the hype started. I’m so glad I ended up watching it though as it was AMAZING!

Upcoming: Spider-Man Homecoming & Valerian & The City Of A Thousand Planets

Can we just talk about how I’ve been waiting for BOTH of these movies for what feels like a while now and they’re both out next month?! I’m so excited…GAHH!


Television

Currently finished binging: N/A

I haven’t currently finished binging or watching anything for a while now. I’ve been REALLLLLY lacking in the television department. I have so many things to catch up on…it’s slightly overwhelming.

Currently watching/binging: Orange Is The New Black & Shadowhunters

I’ve been watching both of these shows off and on for about the past 2 weeks. I’m slowly trying to finish them both off so I can start something new!


Music

Currently listening to: BTS & Monsta X

So, it should be no surprise that I’m STILL listening to BTS, but in recent developments…Jesse from Books At Dawn has introduced me to a new KPOP group to fangirl over: Monsta X! Hero will be stuck in my head for the rest of time.


There you have it! My weekly update for this past week!

Thank you for reading!

    1. right?! It’s so amazing when that happens! Same here about Wonder Woman! I feel like I should write a review, but I’m just not even sure what to say haha! I absolutely cannot wait for Valerian!!

  2. Oh, imagine seeing your friend again in another 10 years.. man, that feels like a really long time not to see someone, yet it feels like something out of a book or a movie.

    I’ve been wanting to pick up Falling Kingdoms series as well! I haven’t read it but I’ve heard good things but I’m so afraid to pick up ANOTHER unfinished series (it’s unfinished right!?) because I have so many series I need to finish/star/finish!!

    I’m so glad you loved Wonder Woman and I can’ wait for your review!!

    PS: I don’t get KPOP…. I just.. I don’t get it. 😀

    1. It was definitely a really long time, but it barely felt any different which was really nice! I guess it kind of does sound like a fictional story haha!

      Falling Kindgoms was pretty great! I’m not sure why it took me so long to get to the second book! The final book comes out this year I believe! But there is also a spin-off series that is currently unfinished!

      I LOVED Wonder Woman and I’m so glad that I dewcided to go out and see it! I’m not sure if I’ll be writing a review just yet, I literally have no time from now until like mid-next week so we’ll see!

      Honestly, I didn’t think I would ever get K-POP either, and then suddenly something just clicked and now I’m hooked haha! I literally haven’t been able to listen to anything other than the two groups I’ve been currently listening to!

      1. Oh, so I should pick up Falling Kingdoms then? Damn it. I haven’t seen it in my bookstores though and I suck at ordering books online so I guess I must bite that bullet and do it before it’s too late.

        I’m sitting here, waiting for your WW review until next week then. I mean, I has time. 😀
