Welcome to The Sunday Post hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer, where I talk about what is going on in life and the blog, and show you all the bookish things I got that week! Let's get started!
Things I Watched:
I watched (or re-watched) Captain America: The Winter Soldier because it is the best movie ever, and I also watched The Avengers! :D
Also, Fall just started (YAY!) which means ALL the shows are coming back! One of the many reasons why I love Fall! So, this past week, the shows that came on the I normally watch are Castle, Worst Cooks in America, The Middle and Modern Family. And brand new shows that I watched the pilot of: Minority Report and Scream Queens. I really liked Minority Report--it has a very interesting concept and I will definitely be sticking with it. And I actually didn't know it was based on a movie so I'm gonna go watch it :)
Scream Queens... it was weird. Again, I like the concept but even after watching the two episodes that came out back-to-back, I'm still kind of iffy about it. A lot of the characters are super bitchy and I'm not a fan. But the mystery has me intrigued so I will cautiously continue to follow it.
Nail art of the week:
I bought some new nail polishes last week (or maybe the week before??) and one of them was this bronze one I am wearing and I just had to swatch it! The swatch itself didn't last long so I then applied some striping tape and added some black and this is what I came up with:
I really love how it turned out! It's so pretty and kind of sophisticated, if I do say so myself ;) haha. So late this week, I bought one more nail polish (in addition to the ones I had already bought) and that one glows in the dark! Eeeep! I've owned glow-in-the-dark polishes in the past, but they were all sucky and didn't really glow. This one is good though, and I am very excited to try it! I'll definitely be using it this week! :D
It's Monday! What Are You Reading? #69: Ghosts and Mysteries, Oooooooh!
Book Spotlight: Annie's Defiance (Elemental Myths #3) by Nicole Pouchet
[Click the image to take you to the Amazon page! But check the price first to make sure it's still free!]
I love the Elemental Assassin series and this is actually my very first audiobook ever! I'm so excited! Thanks so much Jennifer! :D
I've had a $10 iTunes GC forever, so I finally decided to use it... for books, obviously ;) Only problem is, I can't read them on my Kindle!!! Grrrr! So frustrating! I'm gonna need to figure out a way to read these (and soon) 'cause I love this series!
Next, I also went to my local used bookstore and found me some R.L. Stine goodies! Yay!
From the library I got me the next book in the Funeral Crashing series, which I love! Murder mysteries, yay! And I also actually went to my library (I don't usually go... the books just get sent to me via mail, hehe) and got me some creepy books to get in the Halloween spirit! :D I love this season, okay? haha
Thanks to Jessica Therrien for Redemption... I am so excited to read this! :D And thanks to Raye for Curse of the Sphinx... these are both Greek mythology based! Yay! (ANd can you spot that second copy? I'm giving that one away in the Mythology Reading Challenge!)
