Weekly Wrap-Up

What's New:
Schooooooooooooool! All I have been doing is school. I am currently watching, and cracking up at, My Big Fat Fabulous Life and ignoring the mound of homework I should be doing. I'm trying to catch up on my shows that start new seasons this fall so I can watch them real time, but that is proving to be much more difficult that I thought it would be. So my life this week has been school -work and tv shows!

What I Read:
I'm still reading Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein, but I have really been enjoying the non-fiction I have been reading for my Women's History class (which you can see here.) I'm also still listening to Sense and Sensibility which I should finish soon because I have been doing a lot of driving lately.

 

 

What I Bought:

Pre-order:
Black Widow Forever Red by Margaret Stohl
I pre-ordered this a couple of weeks ago, but forgot to mention it! It was under ten dollars on amazon, so I went ahead and ordered it! I'm really excited that Black Widow is getting a novel, because I love her and think her backstory is so interesting and not explored enough in the Marvel movies. PETITION FOR A BLACK WIDOW MOVIE! 

What I Posted:
Monday- I reviewed Tess of the D'urbervilles by Thomas Hardy
Tuesday- I shared Ten Books I'm Dying to Read this Fall (but probably won't because school has taken over my life)
Wednesday- I shared some of the books that are high on my wishlist!
Thursday- I shared some scattered thoughts on names in a 1 AM Post

Last Week's Wrap-Up

What's Next: 
I'm not sure! I have an adult fiction review on Monday for sure, and the rest of the week is unplanned and unscheduled so I'm not sure how many posts I will be able to get up next week- we will have to see what the week brings.

  2. I'm looking forward to that Black Widow book too. I hope it's good. I totally agree on a BW movie, why they aren't making one is beyond me. Seems like a no brainer...

    Haven't read Jane Austen but I think Sense & Sensibility was the one that I really liked the movie version I saw. Have a great week!

  3. Love the cover of Rose Under Fire and I'm also a fan off all-things-Jane Austen. I'm yet to try an audio book as I really don't think they're for me but probably should try on before making that assertion.

    1. Rose Under Fire is beautiful inside and out! Audiobooks are great for long car rides, hope you try one out soon!

  5. In college I attended an all-women's school, and everything was women's history based, which got a little wearing, but now I appreciate the perspective it gave me. I know you are talking about the Marvel Black Widow, but there is a movie from the 90s of the same name that has nothing to do w comics and is a good thriller.

    1. Oh wow, what a cool experience, but I can see how it could get overwhelming- it's not a very upbeat subject.

  8. I love a bit of Jane Austen but I prefer good old Mr Darcy from P and P!

    I quite fancy getting the Black Widow book but I will wait till reviews come in first!

    Have a good week!

    1. So far, Mr. Knightly from Emma is my favorite Austen love-interest!

  9. I agree about Black Widow! I'll have to look into her novel too because I agree that her backstory is so interesting. It just never gets enough attention.

  10. I've seen some ads for My Big Fat Fabulous Life and it looks so fun! It definitely sounds like school busyness has hit full force. Hope you find time to read. Have a great week!

    1. It's hilarious! Whitney has such a great personality and outlook on life! I'm finding some free time now and then, but of course not as much as I would like.
