The Weekly Progress (Where have you been all my life Edition)

Aloha! The last few weeks were incredibly busy but it's winding down so this is the perfect time to do a Weekly Progress post. I have a lot planned for this week. I will post fairly often since I'm going to be scheduling posts a little more now and I feel way less stressed than the last few weeks.

Books Read

The Maze Runner (Maze Runner, #1)The Catastrophic History of You and MeDreaming Awake (Falling Under, #2)

I was honestly not that impressed with this week's books. I'm not sure if I was just not in a reading mood or what, but I had high hopes for all of these books and I didn't get what I was looking for. I didn't connect very well with the characters in The Maze Runner although the plot was interesting. The Catastrophic History of You and Me was very slow at times, and Dreaming Awake (sequel to Falling Under which I adored) was underwhelming to me. Maybe I was really picky this week (I probably was) but I didn't love any of these books. 

Currently Reading

Still Waters

Maybe this is the book that'll get me out of my funk? 

Stuff I did while I was away

I went to some Teen Author Week events. I co-blog for the library, so I had some fun being a reporter and writing transcripts and taking pictures of the events. I met Leslie Livingston, Catherine Austen, Max Turner, Alex Sanchez, and Mariko Tamaki. 

I also got my G1 and went driving for the first time! I love it; I'll try to take official drivers ed classes in March. 

Recap of posts (ICYMI)

Believe it or not, I did post something while I was away. I posted my review of Audrey's Guide to Witchcraft (4 stars, check it out!), My Personal Yearbook, and Witch Hunt. I also wrote a bit about spoilers in blogs and my theory when it comes to them

That's it for last week!

I had a decent week but I'm hoping for more next week. I'll leave you with Rihanna's Where Have You Been, a song that is way too darn catchy (if not a little annoying). 


  1. We've read 2 out of those 3 and felt similarly... Would love to hear what you think about STILL WATERS, though! We keep hearing that YA thrillers are potentially on the rise, and that that book is a good one to start with. (Also CHOKER by Elizabeth Woods?)

    1. I don't think I'm a thriller person. I think I tried Choker although it wasn't my thing so I didn't finish it. I didn't like the characters. :(


Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
