This Week In Review (1/20-1/27)

Hi guys! πŸ˜›

So you might have noticed that this post is titled “This Week In Review” rather than the usual “This Week In Books”. That’s because I’ve decided to expand this to cover not only books, but other things that have happened as well. πŸ™‚ Let’s get into this!



I read…

  • Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire SΓ‘enz
    • given 2ΒΌ out of 5 stars; review here.

I’m currently reading…

  • Shades of Earth by Beth Revis
    • I’m 71% done and I really like it. It’s intriguing and there was just a big twist! I think something else big is underway and I’m eager to continue. πŸ˜€ Goodreads here.
  • Redwall by Brian Jacques
    • I’m 56% done and I like it. It’s a bit fast paced but I like Matthias and I’m eager to see how it plays out. I’m reading this slower because it’s a buddy read with my sister, but I hope to be done with it by next week. πŸ™‚ Goodreads here.

I want to read…

  • Opposition by Jennifer L. Armentrout
    • I’m excited to get to this book, but I also don’t want the series to end. It will likely be bittersweet for me to finish it. I hope it’s a great conclusion! Goodreads here.


So last Wednesday I came down with the stomach flu. I stayed home the rest of the week, did some reading and blogging, and recovered over the weekend. I went back to school on Monday and was fine. But now I apparently have it again. I feel terrible. On the bright side, though, that means more time for reading and blogging. πŸ˜‰

Yesterday I was bored and checked Twitter, where I saw an account I follow post a character aesthetic. I decided that I wanted to make them too. The idea had been lurking in my mind for a while now, but yesterday I finally acted on it. I made a We Heart It account and searched for some pictures. Then this happened. πŸ˜€

I tend to get a lot of very random, weird nonsensical thoughts (mostly right before bed). They make me laugh and speculate, and I thought it would be fun to share them here. πŸ˜› Prepare yourself for the unfiltered randomness that is my thoughts.

We have pairs of socks and pairs of shoes. That makes sense because each have two. But why do we have pairs of pants? A pair of pants is really only one and unlike socks and shoes, we only wear one at a time. It doesn’t make sense.

And why are pears called pears? That’s similar to pairs, but in the form of a fruit. And again, there’s initially only one. Unless you have two, then you would have a pair of pears. And why does “pear” mean fruit and “pair” mean two? Why can’t “pair” mean fruit and “pear” mean two?

This is all such a paradox! But wait. Why is it paradox? Why not pear-adox or pair-adox? That’s the real question.

I wasn’t kidding when I said my thoughts were random and nonsensical. This is just one example, although there are many more I can’t currently remember. XD

So, basically, my musings are just a showcase of my craziness. Don’t judge me.

So yeah. I’ll stop there, haha.

And that’s all for this recap! I’ll be doing them this way from now on. πŸ™‚

Has anything interesting/funny/weird happened to you this week? What are you currently reading? I’d love to know! πŸ˜€
