What I've Been Doing this Week

Finally getting my eyes tested. That was long overdue
Helping to sort out my Aunt's house
Recovering from being ill - I hate being ill!


Hunger by Michael Grant.
Second of the "Gone" Series.

It's taken me a fair while to read the second book in Michael Grant's Gone series, and whilst I did enjoy it, it wasn't quite as good as the first one. I think that the last quarter of the book just really seemed to drag, and I found myself getting bored and skipping paragraphs of narrative.

Now that I've finished this one, I'm a little bit undecided about whether or not to read the next book in the series: Lies. But I'll be deciding what to read tomorrow, and I'm currently not really sure what to pick up...hmmm!!



Admittedly, I only watched this initially because I was curious to see what Elijah Wood is up to at the moment, but I have to say that after watching three episodes, I'm really loving this American/Australian comedy, which is simple genius. 

Gerard Way of My Chemical Romance at Reading Festival
It's now over four years since I saw My Chemical Romance live in Manchester, so it was really nice to be able to see them (on telly of course), live at the Reading Festival. It reminded me why I still consider them to be the best live act that I've so far had the opportunity to see. They really do have a great stage presence, and it made me really wish that I was there!

Listening to...

Bruno Mars - Marry You
I'm not really a fan of Bruno Mars, but I'm really loving this song. It was hard to beat, but I definitely prefer this version to the beautiful version that the cast of Glee did, although I still adore their version too!

Adele - Set Fire to the Rain
Again, I'm not really a fan of Adele's either, but after hearing this beautiful song following Misha's audition on X Factor, I have absolutely fallen in love with this track. It is gorgeous.

Madina Lake - Attics to Eden
With only two weeks to go until the release of Madina Lake's third album World War III, I've been taking the opportunity to catch up on their last album, which I'm a big fan of. Their first album wasn't really that great, in my honest opinion, but this one is absolutely perfect.

I love the creativity of Madina Lake's overall concept. And, I can't wait for their next album.

What have you been up to this week?
PS: For anyone who is interested, I also co-run an Entertainment blog, which I'd love you to check out :)
