Carry On by Rainbow Rowell // ★★★★ // I actually quite enjoyed this one. Maybe because I didn’t have incredibly high expectations? I’d seen some not-so-raving reviews on it. And I had already read Fangirl, so I knew this was their Harry Potter-esque story. I was so invested in Baz. Love him.
Nice Dragons Finish Last (Heartstrikers #1) by Rachel Aaron // ★★★★.5 // I was scared to start this book. I absolutely love Rachel Aaron’s Legend of Eli Monpress series, so I really wanted to like this one too. And I was afraid I wouldn’t. I didn’t have to worry. I truly enjoyed it. Julius was such a fun main character. Julius the Nice Dragon.
Switched (Trylle #1) by Amanda Hocking // ★★★★ // I had a bind-up of this series, including the novellas, on my shelf and decided it was finally time to read it. This series reads so quickly! I really enjoyed it -although I did know something about 2 of the main characters’ lives at the end of the trilogy already before starting. I read the Kanin chronicles, which feature them.
The Vittra Attacks (Trylle #1.5) by Amanda Hocking // ★★★ // I don’t often read novellas, but as they were part of the bind-up I figured I might as well. This was an interesting introduction to Loki, who is introduced in book 2.
Torn (Trylle #2) by Amanda Hocking // ★★★★ // It’s hard to make a distinction between the plot lines of the three books in my mind, as I read them all so quickly after the other. I was really happy to see Wendy started being more responsible, and taking on more. I wasn’t really into the love triangle at first though.
One Day: Three Ways (Trylle #2.5) by Amanda Hocking // ★★★ // Again, another novella. Fun, but nothing amazing. What I liked most was that we finally got to read something in the perspectives of others.
Ascend (Trylle #3) by Amanda Hocking // ★★★★ // The only thing I didn’t like here was the end battle. It just felt a bit.. anti-climactic? All these build-up, for such a short battle. I love the ending – although I admit it’s quite optimistic.
Ever After (Trylle #3.5) by Amanda Hocking // ★★★★ // This was my favorite novella, because you see the main characters come together for something normal!
Cold Case // Cold Case is one of those series that was always on TV. I used to watch a bit when I was doing homework in high school or such but I never truly followed it. So I thought I’d start from the beginning!
Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders // I love Criminal Minds -although I haven’t seen the last like 5 episodes. I wanted to give this new series a go, and so far I like it. It won’t take the place of the original Criminal Minds, but it’s enjoyable. And fun to see places other than the US.
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory // I had such an urge to re-watch this on Friday evening. I should really re-read this book. I’ve only ever read it in Dutch. I really like this story -and the movie.
Not all that much to say here! I had two more exams this week. One of them was incredibly unfair -but I’m trying to let go of the anger here. Three more to go!
How was your week? Did you read, watch or do anything fun?
