Weekly Recap #39

Hi guys, I hope this will be me back posting regularly again, I'm still suffering from a blocked nose and feeling tired a lot of the time, but I've bought a higher dose of iron tablets, so I hope those will help. and I really need to get back on track with eating properly, I think because I've had back to back viral infections and colds I've just been eating what I feel like, but I seriously need to sort it out now! But other than that my week wasn't too bad.
We link our weekly wrap ups with The Sunday Post hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated reviewer.

WHAT I READ/REVIEWED 
(Click on title for Goodreads link)


I was surprised to learn that Bridal Boot Camp was a novella, I really did enjoy it, but just expected more. On the Come Up was another great book from Angie Thomas, I think I still loved The Hate U Give a smidge more, but On the Come Up once again had such solid characters. Because You Love to Hate Me had been on my tbr pile for the longest time, I finally decided to give this book a go last month, and just finished it yesterday and to be honest it was kind of disappointing, I think there were one or two stories that I liked, but a lot of them I skim read :/


BOOKS RECEIVED

It was my sister's birthday this week and she had been after Emergency Contact for the longest time, I've heard such great things about this book, so can't wait to start it, as soon as she's finished with it.  And I'm not normally one to read graphic novels, but since I really enjoyed The Umbrella Academy tv show, I thought I'd give the comic a go.


NEW TO MY TBR
(Click on Book for Goodreads link)

 

This newest book from Mar H, Choi sounds brilliant, I know I haven't read anything from Choi previously, but I have a feeling that this will be my sort of book. And Christina Lauren have quickly become my go to authors, so I was super excited to find out about their newest release. 


  WHAT I'M WATCHING


So I went to watch Captain Marvel this week and wow this film was just incredible, definitely up there as one of my favourite Marvel movies alongside Black Panther. I loved how we were given the backstory and how it links up with other films, this is one film I highly recommend watching!


EVENTS OF THE WEEK 


This week marked my seven year blogoversary at The Readers Den, it was the day of my sister's birthday and the day I went to watch Captain Marvel, so totally forgot, but thank you everyone who has stuck by me and supported my blog, even though I haven't been that consistent as of late, I appreciate every single comment you guys leave. 
The above photo is the breakfast I had with my friend this week, the egg muffin was absolutely delicious and it was just great catching up in so long. 
And in other news my sister has started a new blog, unfortunately she's not a reader like me, but she's lived with being a coeliac most of her life, and recently has become super strict with her diet (proud sister moment) and so has created this blog, to help others ease their way in living with a coeliac diet. You can check out her blog at Gluten Free & Gut Happy. 


How was your week?

  4. I didn't know The Umbrella academy was a comic! I've heard great things about the show. Also I loved Capt. Marvel- Brie Larson as CM, Ben Mendelssohn as Talos, the humor, just the whole thing. Awesome movie!

    Happy blogoversary!!!

    1. Yeah I didn't realise until fairly recently and that a member of My Chemical Romance actually wrote it? I love how Captain Marvel has given us all this build up to Avengers Endgame, I really can't wait for that either!

  7. I think we've been on the same page being sick. It's so frustrating and set me back in many ways. I hope you are on the mend though. I'm glad you liked On the Come Up. I put a hold on it at the library and I'm eagerly waiting for it to come through.
    I need to go see Captain Marvel as soon as I'm done with my exams next week. I've heard nothing but great things!
    And happy 7 years, Jasprit!

  15. I can't believe it's been 7 years, Jasprit! Congratulations! :)

    I hope you're feeling better! Getting back to back viral infections can really bring your energy level down! And bravo for your sister starting a healthy eating/gluten free blog. I know so many people with food intolerance issues.

    I really want to see Captain Marvel. Love a girl who can kick some ass! I always wanted to be that girl/woman. I'll probably wait until it comes out on DVD knowing the way my life works right now! I hardly have any free time lately.
