Weekly Round-Up: Netflix and reading and writing


PEOPLES! I've changed my blog post font - please tell me what you think? Is it easier to read than the previous one? I need feedback! And while you're at it, I'd really appreciate it if you could tell me what font you use for your blog... I'm looking for the perfect one, and I'd love to know what you find works for you.
Thanks :) 
And I also changed my blogger header! I'd love to know your thoughts on that too? 

In other news, it's been an average week. I'm still going strong with my WIP, have been reading a fair amount, and been watching a lot of Gossip Girl (I'm officially addicted. It's my new darling). I finished series 1, but I'm going to take a break from it before starting series two and make a start on Supergirl instead. Which I've been dying to see. 


A small warning: there'll be blog posts from me every day for the rest of the month. I have a lot of reviews coming, and am hoping to get a "fun" post in there somewhere too. So stay tuned :)   



Posts of the week: 
Film Review: THE ZOOKEEPER'S WIFE
Book Review: The People At Number 9





Still going with these two books :)  



I finished one book this week (review to come): 






THIS ARRIVED AND I DIED OF EXCITEMENT

Except I haven't read And I Darken yet, so I need to get hold of it soon.

  1. I love your new header!! It's sweet & simple! As for your new font, I also like it. It's super easy to read. I'm honestly not too sure which I font I use for my site...I think just the default lol but it works for me. I keep meaning to read the Conqueror's Saga series (and really any book by Kiersten) but I still haven't gotten around to it yet. That's so exciting about the Paula Hawkins book!! Happy reading, and have a great week, Amy! :)

  2. This might sound terrible but I honestly never really notice the format of things like headers on blogs I visit! I notice graphics used on blog posts but my memory for detail isn't the greatest! Blog content always matters more to me than design as I'm happy to just visit the blogs and whatever the author of it likes to use is ok by me! Personally I just use a basic blogger template and some fun graphics on stuff I like to decorate it-I'm not greatly fussy I guess... I will say that the writing on your site is always easy to read, things are easy to find in menus...very user friendly!

    I'm still watching sharks and reading sea monsters of all kinds! FUN!

  4. I love winning stuff. Isn't it awesome? It comes in waves for me. I will win a bunch of stuff and then nothing for a really long time. I hope the universe throws me a bone soon, because I could use some #BookMail.

  6. Ohhhh, congrats on the win! That's so awesome! I'm excited for you. :D I liked your old blog header a lot but this new one is cool too. I honestly can't remember what your old text font looked like. O_O In any case, this new font is great. Happy reading and Netflixing! Have a fabulous week, Amy. =)

    P.S. Thank you SO MUCH for the shout-out!!!

  7. I absolutely adore your new header!! I think it is so great! Like Alyssa, I can't remember what your font looked like, but this is easy to read and comprehend! I personally just use Times for my font...XD Gossip Girl is such a guilty pleasure! You're making me want to re-watch it. If I remember correctly, I absolutely love either season 3 or 4 the most. And congrats on winning the book! That's awesome. :)

    Yay for Into the Water. Hope it's great. And looking forward to your thoughts on One Of Us Is Lying.

  12. Soooooooo far behind again!! Sorry!

    Firstly - love the new font AND the new header! It's lighter and cleaner somehow, although I do still love your old header too!

    I love Supergirl!

    Can't wait to hear what you think of And I Darken and Now I Rise! I haven't read the second book but I wasn't in love with the first book, so it'll be interesting!

    Congrats on the giveaway win too!

    1. No worries!

      Thank you, I'm so glad!

      I need to give it another try, I think ;) I found the first episode boring and stopped...

      Sorry you didn't enjoy the first :( I'm really interested to see what they're like.

      Thank you!
