Just Another Week, Always New Discoveries - IV

Hey, all! 

I decided to bring this little blog meme back to life! It's halfway through summer break, and I'm finally settled into our new house enough to be able to blog (semi) regularly again. Aside from discovering Paris as someone who's last been when she was maybe 14, I've been strong on the nerd culture front as well! As always, feel free to join in on this and post your own answers! 



Staying Bookish

1. Read
In the past week, I read quite a few books, actually! I flew through Queens of Geek, by Jen Wilde. Posting my review was a little hesitant, as it covers a lot of personal stuff. But it felt great to write it all down :) 

I also started Obsidio, by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman. I'm adoring it so far, as expected! These authors are incredible, and I know that something happens in the end, but I'm scared to find out what! 

Finally, I started something very different - a manga called Beyond the Clouds! I never read manga, but this one called out to me, as it's a steampunk book about a girl with wings. Those of you who know me better will understand why I needed to read it! 


2. Haul
I only count books as 'hauled' once they're on my shelf! This week I hauled Beyond the Clouds - La Fillette tombée du Ciel, by Nicke. I also ordered some little things, but hopefully they'll be here next week. It is my birthday soon so I figured I could treat myself! 


3. Discover
I discovered the coolest site the other day! It's called Youpine, it is a website where you add a set of adjectives that express how you feel about a book you recently read. Based on adjectives you want, (comforting, scary, adventurous), books will be suggested to you! Love it! 


Bring on the Music
Sadly I haven't discovered much this week - with the move, we haven't had internet so it's been difficult to use a lot of data to find new music. But I'm always open to suggestions. 


Movies and Motion Pictures

1. TV Shows
Summer is a wonderful time for TV shows - when its too hot to be outside, you can curl up with iced tea and an episode. 

Anyone watching Grimm? I found the first season, it's not so much my style but it's entertaining enough! 

My parents and I are also almost done watching Desperate Housewives - 2 episodes a night of drama is always fun! 


2. Movies
No movie discoveries, but I'm really looking forward to some new releases, including Fantastic Beasts 2 and Mamma Mia 2! 



That's it for me this week! Have you discovered something unexpected? I'd love to hear about it! 

Stay bookish!

  1. Hi Caroline,
    I came to your blog while exploring Instagram. I was looking for some book suggestions for writers. It would be awesome, if you can suggest me some.
