Weekly Update (10/03/2018)

Books Read This Week

5 books this week. I binge read The Selection series just before I got pretty ill with some sort of chest infection, which is clearing up now. I still love the series as a fluff read but I can't deny that it has it's problems. Thanks to NetGalley I got the opportunity to read two popular books - Sam & Ilsa's Last Hurrah and To Kill A Kingdom. S&I was honestly for me, terrible. Just a bunch of rich kids throwing a party. To Kill A Kingdom was basically, this:

Basically if you mashed up Little Mermaid with Pirates Of The Caribbean it would be this, BUT IT'S EVEN BETTER. It's a story of sirens and Prince's and it's all kinds of wonderful.

A Vague Sort Of  Cross Stitch Update

If you squint over to the left you can see cat butt, as I'm still stitching Frederick The Literate. I've very nearly finished this section though, so I'm hoping next week I'll have stitched some more books.

Look, A Song

I freaking love John Joseph Brill so I hope this video is available in your country. Also check him out on Spotify as most of his songs are on there.
