Weekly Wrap Up – 27th July

Books I Bought this Week

So I went on a big library tour this week in Aberdeen and the thing about most libraries is that there is a small table in the back corner or somewhere discreet with piles of books on sale for about 25-50p. AND THAT dear reader, is the story of how I acquired 17 books in 1 day, at a total cost of 4 pounds and 25 pence, about $7.20

Comments I Left this Week

Number of Characters at Reading is fun again – Having loads of characters in a book get really confusing, I like them to be staggered as we are introduced. In City of Heavenly Fire for example, the book starts and we are thrown to the figurative wolves with what fells like 400 Blackthorn children to remember the names hair colors and eye colors of, I’m terrible with these things. if you named a friend of mine and asked me to tell you what colour their eyes are I would completely guess, I’m rubbish!
On the other hand, In the Hunger Games, we meet so many people so quickly and it really works, I know who they are and what they look like (though I don’t think I could say the same for Mockingjay, that was a bit TOO much.

Cress Review at Chapter Break – I feel you, I really did miss Scarlet in this book (it is so hard to type that without the extra “T” like it hurts my head!)but I’m SO EXCITED for Winter. I’m not sure how I feel about this Levana book thing because while it’s probably going to be really important to the story it’s like I don’t care about her, i wanna know what happens to Cress!

Writing: This weird ass message to a friend of mine

ME: ikr but hey it was the 80’s they did all kinds of weird stuff!
I BET THAT’S GONNA BECOME THE SAYING ABOUT FANGIRLS
Eve: very true
ME: “hey it was the fangirls they did all kind of weird stuff!They worshiped in particular a moose, a squirrel, an otter and a hedgehog”
“often, students of chemistry would run screaming from the labs at the sight of sulphur powder required for experiments”
“they were known, on occasion to shout strange things at any point in time such as “don’t blink” or “wibbly wobbly timey wimey” or when speaking of their native attire “bowties are cool”. They were a feared stage of human evolution who hid away from society in fear of a dreadful beast named “hiatus”. Those who worshiped the otter and hedgehog primarily were the first to reach extinction when their promised fourth season remained undelivered for 5 years. The other frightening fangirls terrorized he earth with their constant squealing until finally BBC and NBC were forced to stop broadcasting and publication stopped on Young adult novels in a last ditch attempt by the government to allow this “hellatus” to consume the creatures, making the world a sane place once again”

I can’t explain it….. I got carried away“

Missing: My daddy in Houston, Kirsty, my bookshelves and my posters! Oh my bed how I long to see you again! (seriously I’ve set up a wee den where I am living, my bed is a mattress underneath a desk with all my books piled around me! I’d like to point out that this was done by choice, I’m not being neglected, I just like my own space and nobody disturbs me under my desk).
