Weekly Round-Up: Writing and reading and watching


Yikes, another week has just flown. And it was a good week, I think, although I didn't read a lot. 
I did a lot of writing AND FINALLY STARTED THE FIRST DRAFT OF MY WIP!! WOOHOO!! It's going really well so far, but it is slow-going. Still, I'm glad I've finally made a start on it. I was also thinking of maybe doing a blog post about the characters and the vague outline of the story to give you an idea of what it's about. Would that be something you'd like to read?    

I also watched a bit more Netflix this week. I've finished season 3 of Arrow (having spent most of the season fuming about its dropped standards and plot and character shortcomings. I also thought of doing a blog post about it, but I'm not sure how many of you are Arrow fans. Who'd be interested in a post like that?)   


Posts of the week: 
Book Review: WINDFALL
Book Review: STARR FALL






I'm buddy-reading You don't know my name with my #squad, and by myself I'm reading The Marble Collector and Silver Blood.   

I also finished these three books: 

(Reviews to come soon). 




I got these two beautiful paperbacks this week! And I've already finished reading Seven Days of You...

  4. I really want to read One of Us is Lying! I've just been reading some creative writing books lately and FINALLY saw Spider-Man: Homecoming, so that's all that I've read and watched this past week. >.<

  6. I'm busy with Deep Blue Terror at the moment. Since Friday I have watched 7 shark films and read 3 sea monster books so that has been fun! I haven't started watching Arrow yet so I wouldn't personally look at it in case of spoilers but I think you should do the post. I do two Game of Thrones posts a week which a few people come to visit and comment on so people do enjoy tv posts! I never look at bloggers WIP posts-purely because I only read complete published books-but again, I think you should share your work if that is what you feel you want to do. I think people will be interested in seeing what you are doing.

  8. I was watching Arrow (and Flash) for a while but kinda drifted away, they were losing my interest. Would definitely love to see your thoughts though. And yay for your WIP! Same for that- it's nice when people share what they're working on. :)

    LOVE that cover of Silver Blood. And hope you like One Of Us Is Lying- I enjoyed that one.

    Thanks for linking my post! :)

  10. Hope your week is off to a great start, Amy! I would love to hear more about your characters and your WIP in general. I remember seeing Seven Days of You around a lot earlier in the year but most of the reviews I read were rather middle of the road so I gave it a pass. Will look forward to seeing your thoughts on it.

  11. I have been debating starting Arrow season one, but still haven't finished Vampire Diaries Season 5, I feel as though they are just dragging way too long now and have limited enthusiasm for it. Interesting cover for One of Us is Lying, not what I was expecting (don't know why) but it makes it seem more sinister!
