Week Recap - Couch Potato Blues

This has been a rough week for me. I went to the doctor on Tuesday because I haven't been feeling well for quite some time. I am on antibiotics for a sinus infection but it just seems to not want to go away. I have spent the last few days on the couch. It has given me time to watch some TV and read. I watched the first season of Helix which was interesting but I don't really know how I feel about it, and now I am watching The 100. Have you watched either? What do you think?

This Week I Read:

This Week on A Flurry of Ponderings:

Monday - Review of The Naturals
Wednesday - Waiting on Wednesday with Ensnared
Thursday - Featured Blogger - What's Hot
Friday - Review of Into The Woods

Here is a fun, easy reading challenge from Popsugar! I am going to print it out and put it in my writing notebook! Thought I would share, so we can keep each other motivated!



  1. Hope you kick that sinus infection's butt soon ;-)

    I watch both Helix and The 100, the latter which I love. Helix, um, I do enjoy it and find it interesting, but I don't love it, although I am looking forward to season two in a couple of weeks.

    I've heard some good things about Station Eleven, I think I will see if my library has it.

    That challenge looks fun, but I am already doing about 5 this year, so I am staying away from the Popsugar one.

    Happy reading and TV watching ;-)

  2. I love the PopSugar reading challenge. What a great way of keeping on top of things and reading a wide range of different books. Love it.

    Let us know how you get on! :) x

  3. I'm only doing two challenges this year so far. I enjoyed Helix as well. Not too much love for the 100. Looks like you had an incredible reading week.

  4. Hope you kick this sinus infections butt quickly!
    Like I mentioned last night, love The 100! It gets better and better as it goes along. Pretty addicting.
    Happy reading!

  5. Love that Pop Sugar list! I am determined to not go overboard with the challenges this year, but I think that will be fun one to print out and check off just to see where my reading takes me this year. I kind of feel the same way about the Book Riot Read Harder Challenge -- I think I may be *unofficially* participating in those :)

    Being sick sucks, even if you do get more reading in -- I hope you are feeling better soon!

  6. I am obsessed with the 100, I have watched every episode that's out. I thought it would be your usually teenagey type show but I actually love it. Have you read the books?

  7. I'm sorry you're not feeling well. I've been sick too. :( I haven't seen either show, but both are in my queue on Netflix! My husband is totally obsessed with The 100. I hope you enjoy it! I hope you get to feeling better soon!

  13. Fell better! Being sick is the worst. I love the 100! (Bellarke forever!) The challenge looks fun, but I'm hesitant to add another one in this year. I have so much real life stuff happening that I'm unsure how much reading I will get done.

  14. The 100 is my favorite show right now and of course Outlander. The second season is even better of The 100! Hope you are enjoying it. :)

  15. I loved The 100. Having trouble with Helix. It isn't grabbing me but I'm going to keep going. My fav is coming back soon, The Walking Dead!
