Weekly Round-Up: Watching and writing


Another week gone and it's almost September. HELP.

I can barely remember what happened this week; only that I watched one episode of Supergirl and then stopped it cos I was bored (truth: I needed to start season 2 of Gossip Girl because I was dying of anticipation) and I also started Arrow season 4.  

My WIP writing's going.......well. I'm hand-writing the first draft, so it's tiring, but I love my characters and my world and I'm really getting into it. So far, so good.  


Posts of the week: 
Book Review: THE GOOD DAUGHTER
Book Review: SEVEN DAYS OF YOU
Book Review: ONE OF US IS LYING
Book Review: SILVER BLOOD





Nothing!!! And I won't be starting another book until September. 


But I did finish these two books this week: 







Genni reviews The Wrath and the Dawn

Greg reviews Emma in the Night

Amber Elise reviews Because You Love To Hate Me

Lauren reviews Weave A Murderous Web

Emily reviews When Dimple Met Rishi

Michelle reviews Follow Me Back

Erika reviews Crooked Kingdom

Chuckles reviews The Shallows 


Excitement!! I'm running this book giveaway on Twitter with SKVetter, so head over and enter! 
It's international!  






Did you have a good week? What are you writing at the moment? What have you been watching or reading?

  3. Thank you very much for the mention! Much appreciated! It sounds like your WIP is going well so good luck with that! I'm getting my reading lists ready for September and October and I hope to get through a lot of books before the end of the year. I'm going to be watching mutant fish and crocodiles tonight and reading a monster book called Sawfish so that should be fun!

  7. This week went by in a blur, didn't it? I swear it was just Monday. O_O Good on you for hand-writing your draft! You know who also hand-writes drafts? Kristin Cashore. So this means you are destined to be the next Kristin Cashore. Or the first Amy Nikita. You know what I mean. 😎

    Have a wonderful week, Amy! =)

    1. Thanks Greg! Um, well it's better than series 3, but that's not saying much :( It's definitely gone downhill since series 2.

      Sure :)

  10. That's great that your WIP is going so well. Hope it continues that way!
    Not starting another book until September? Ack!
    The only thing I watch is Game of Thrones so I was up later than normal (for me) last night watching the season finale. I can't believe there's now a year+ wait for the next season!

  11. This summer is going by so freaking fast, I can barely remember what I've been doing because it all just feels like a blur! Glad to hear that your WIP is going well, I often handwrite my first drafts because it just feels more natural sometimes, even though I'm a fast typist. I feel like my creative energy flows better handwriting it sometimes.

    Great post, have a great week!
