Weekly Update (17/02/2018)

by - February 17, 2018



While everyone else is doing Stacking The Shelves I've decided that NOT buying books would be a great idea, so here's everything else I'm doing!

Books Read This Week


Not one but two five star reads this week and both reviews are on my blog. I've read Wither three times now and it's an old favourite, while The Cruel Prince was so good that when I saw a copy in WHSmiths that I went to look for, I had to buy it.
 

Cross Stitch


I'm currently cross stitching Frederick The Literate from Dimensions and it's going well, I've been distracted the last couple of days stitching a mother's day card so I'm going to try and get more progress in soon.

Wizard101


I'm currently level 38 with my character Valdus Mistfist (a truly classy name) and he's just unlocked the third world, Mooshu. I'm currently working on a side world, Wysteria, first. It's free fishing all weekend though so I'm traipsing around looking for chests that might have pets or mounts in them!

Thanks for stopping by, don't forget to leave a comment with a link to your blog!

  1. I'm glad you are enjoying your books. I've yet to read The Cruel Prince but I love Holly Black. Ya Valdus Mistfist is an awesome name. I've only played MarioKart, SuperMario, DiddyKong racing on Nintendo 64 ever in my life. Goodreads had some kind of romance author pen name generator and mine was Flauvia le Fay lol. https://t.co/lbwSfgDLk6

    1. I've only played a little bit of Mariokart, I was a Playstation gamer, the first one. I loved Crash Bandicoot, Bust-A-Move, Rayman, that sort of thing. I was really happy when they remastered Crash and I've just heard that they're releasing a remastered Spyro this year so I hope that's true.

    1. I thought it was amazing! I read Tithe years ago so it was a welcome home to be back in that world, with a new character.

  3. So many people are reading The Cruel Prince. I need to get on that. I love Holly Black and think she does Faerie stories so well. Have a fun week.

    1. So many books, too little time! Get to it when you feel you want to read it, you may hate it if you force yourself to.

  6. I’m glad you loved both of your books! I’m impressed by people who can cross stitch. I don’t have any art talent whatsoever.

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

    1. I used to be terrible at cross stitching, I taught myself at 13 and just slowly improved over time. It's been 13 years now so I'm pretty good at it. It's quite an easy style to learn as it's basically paint by numbers with thread. You should try it!

  7. Glad that The cruel Prince was good! I'm seriously thinking of getting that one. And Wizard101 looks fun.

    1. It's a little bloody and violent, so if you love the darker side to faerie, you'll love this.

    I haven't read either of those books although they are on my TBR list. I just have so many good books on my TBR list that I want to read! Have a great week!

    1. Oh I definitely know that feeling! I have too many to count on my TBR.

  11. I'm glad you also love Wither! I feel like not many people know about it or if they do, they don't like it. It's one of my favorite books ever!

    1. I thought it was a pretty well known book, I guess it was when it was released and people have forgotten about it. I just finished Fever so I'm starting Sever next. :D

  12. I was planning b on not buying books for next week's StS, but I already botched that. Also, I still need to read Cruel Prince. I've heard good things.

    Thanks for visiting Shell's Stories!

    1. I did, it's listed as Read This Week right at the top! I love all of Holly Black's books.

  14. Cross stitch (and anything beyond that) always eluded me. I can do latch hooks, though. I remember when Wizard 101 first came out. I wish I had kept up with it!

  15. I read the Cruel Prince and liked it. I need to post a review for it soon. Hope you enjoy it.
