Week Recap

I struggled with allergies all week. Sadly the joyous bringing of warm weather makes me feel like an elephant is sitting on my face. I am starting to finally feel better, so hopefully I will be able to spend some time outside soon! I did pretty well with reading this week. I am really struggling to get through Red Rising. Everyone seems to love it so much and I have felt the writing was sometimes hard to understand and tedious. I am over half done so I think I am going to stick with it.

How was your week? What was your favorite book this week?



  1. Everyone in my house is suffering due to allergies too! I was just saying the other day that I was the lucky one, but then my eyes started itching and were on fire all day! :(

    I've seen other say that had issues with Red Rising as well. YAY for Across the Universe. I adored that book :)

  2. I have NO ALLERGIES, except for cats, so be jealous. It sucks you're not liking Red Rising, as much. There's a lot of hype surrounding that book, but don't let that get to you.

    I read Cinder this week and just finished Shadow and Bone, and I'm completely blown away and I don't know what to do with my life anymoreeee. This is also the worst time possible because the sun is shining, it's 80 degrees here, and I have a paper due on Tuesday that I haven't started yet. Yay

  3. Aw, allergies are the worst! Glad you're starting to feel better :) I'm sorry you don't like Red Rising. I've been having bad luck with picking books to read as well lately. The only one that I liked this week was Cinder, the others were just okay or I really disliked them. Hope to have better luck next week. Happy reading! =D

  4. Awe! I hope you feel better! I can totally concur with allergies. Blah.
    I Hope you loved Across the Universe. I'll look for your review. For me the series got better as it goes one. Especially Shades of Earth. What. An. Ending.
    Happy reading!

  5. Yuck, allergies are the worst. I luckily grew out of mine, but honestly, spring was like the DEATH season for me. I spent most of it lying around with tissues over my face. Bury me now. So I FEEL FOR YOU. I'm looking forward to your review of Tiger Lily. :))

  6. Oh I can't wait to read your reviews, I loved the Immortal Rules. Happy reading and have a nice week.

  7. Sorry to hear about those horrible allergies attacking you. I had hay fever once and it was a miserable month for sure. Moving on to your haul, I love the book bingo card! I used to do all kinds of book challenges but I'm not getting enough time at the moment! Enjoy your books and thanks for visiting me!

  8. You've read some great books and have some great ones coming up. I feel for you about your allergies. I'm in the same boat. So. Not. Fun. Thanks for stopping by!

  9. Oh, allergies! It's the one downside of spring / summer. That sucks that you're having a hard time getting through Red Rising (I bought it because it seems like everyone loves that book, plus it was on sale, but I haven't read it yet).

    Hope you enjoy your books :)

  10. Book bingo sounds like fun!!! I see you read Dark Places. How'd you like it???

  13. Totally looking forward to your BORN OF ILLUSION review... plus, you've reminded me that I'm excited for that bk's sequel!

  14. I LOVED Across the Universe. Sadly haven't got round to the rest of the series yet, (too many books to read!) can't wait to read your review.
    Wow, you really have got going on your Bingo card. I keep forgetting about mine, should go and update that! What is the star in the middle for btw? :)
