Week in Review: Aug 8 – 14

Hey everyone! How was your week? Mine was ok. Pretty quiet. My city was having a 2 week cultural celebration where different countries have pavilions where they have food and some type of cultural show (usually dancing). So I went to Argentina and Brazil. I’d been to both a few years back and I have to say, I was disappointed with the shows this year. So next year I’ll check out some different countries.

I was also disappointed with my reading. I’d started the Gunslinger and it could not keep my engaged, AT ALL. So frustrating. I had about 1/4 of the book left and I couldn’t pick it up for the longest time. I powered through it this morning and finished it. I’ll read book 2 whenever just to see if it gets better. But I think I have a basic understanding of the story for when the movie comes out.

I also re-read The Wall of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata. I love that book. But Kulti is still my favourite of hers so far.
I thought I’d share a picture of my haul from today. I hit up the thrift store and Chapters and got a ton of books and a new tote back. And the rocks are some I painted yesterday. I got them at that beach from last week.

This haul makes up for any disappointment I’ve been feeling over my slow reading week.

    My weekend was all right. Went to joey’s cousin wedding. And then a car wash fundraiser. It was so hot though. lol. It felt good to be hit by the spray of the water.

    Ooh, I’m loving your bookish pictures. You’re so bookstagram! 🙂 Great haul and I hope this week is for better books for you.

    I still need to read Kulti!

      I love Kulti. I should take it off my phone because whenever I have a spare moment I’ll start reading it randomly and then I’ll end up having to finish it. The way I was about KA when I discovered her books? That’s how I am about Kulti. I’m holding off reading MZ’s other books because I want something to look forward to.

    Nice haul, Ames 🙂 Loved that you placed your painted rocks in the picture as well! I can’t zoom in though 😦

    I didn’t realize you bought The Summer Bride already. And I love your new tote bag!! Very nice 🙂

    Yeah one of the thrift stores I like to visit usually has some pretty recent releases. So whoever donates books in that area, she has good taste! haha

    I got that tote at Chapters for 5.95!
