The Weekly Progress is a type of wrap up post that happens every Sunday on The Sirenic Codex looking on the week that was.
Last week was my first week off, and to be honest, it went by in a bit of a blur. Some people that were visiting left, and a routine is starting to form. Plus, there was some clothes shopping which sometimes is miserable, but was pretty great.
I am genuinely surprised that I managed to read so much. Yeah, I've fallen hard if I believe four books is that many. Anyway, although I read a lot, I can't say this was a great reading week. I thought In The After and Rose Under Fire were good, but not great. The Chaos of Stars and The Scar Boys were not books I enjoyed. At least I wrote a bunch of reviews, right?
I haven't read any reviews for Control, and I haven't read the synopsis. A cursory Goodreads check shows that it has a pretty good average star rating, and that's good enough for me. Well, and the cover looks like it's my type of read.
On the Blog
Mari reviewed Heartbeat by Elizabeth Scott. She wrote that it was a light novel about dark topics and she enjoyed it.
Mari's Waiting on Wednesday was Winterkill, which has some really cool font stuff going on. It sounds like an intriguing read!
I reviewed a book I really think deserves a lot of attention and praise, Rabbit Ears.
Mari discussed whether it's necessary for a character to be likable to be alive.
And the week ended with my review of Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, which I ended up enjoying because it was so romantically gothic, in a good way.
The winners were picked and contacted for our giveaway! Congratulations to Cait and Anjanette! Thanks to everyone who entered. We'll be shipping the prizes soon!
The Week That Was
A very lazy week that I don't remember too well. Actually, I did go shopping. Bought some summer shoes, which are these cute short wedges that are black and brown. Then did the mall route and visited probably my two favourite stores to shop from: Suzy Shier, and Dynamite. I don't know if you have these stores, but they're all very urban, and I love the styles there.
Song of the Week
I loveeee this song. It's so electric, and I love the hardcore drops. I think music for me is a big part about emotions and feeling, and this song is one you blast and dance to, and it's amazing because it's the type of music that is all-consuming. And, I love that. It's Omnislash by KSHMR! Never heard of the artist but now I'm off to see what else they've made!
