Weekly Updates & Recommendations- (8/29/16-9/4/16)

So I finally decided to start posting weekly updates.  It's something that I've been meaning to start for a while, but I haven't had the time to get started. Now that my kids are back at school it's the perfect time! Speaking of my kids being back at school it's been crazy the past two weeks. The kids first week back at school was great and I'm very proud of how well my autistic daughter is doing her first year in junior high! I'm happily surprised that she's doing so well and even LOVES switching classes. 

As for my sons, well they started one week at their school from last year and this Monday was their first day at a STEM Academy! For those who don't know what that is, it stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. We got the call late Thursday afternoon and had a mad rush to get them ready by Monday. We had to buy uniforms, get school supplies back from the other school, but more school supplies, fill out paperwork, and so on all in just a few days. 

As for me this week, I'm still just trying to adjust to waking up at 5:00 AM and the busy school year schedule. Send help. And coffee please. 


Reading: And I Darken and then I will read The Wolf Road. 

Watching: Make it or Break it. I've watched the whole series before when it aired, but now I'm watching it again with my husband who hasn't seen it. The Olympics got us into a gymnastics mood obviously! 

Listening To: The new Britney Spears album Glory. So far I really like Make Me and a few others are okay, but I'm not loving it.

For my recommendations area I decided that I will switch up what I will recommend. I will be recommending movies, books, TV shows, music, other bloggers to follow, Twitter accounts, bookstagrammers, and etc depending on my mood. This week I decided to highlight a few of my favorite bloggers! 

My Guilty Obsession - I'm pretty sure that this is the first blog I ever followed and Ali always has fantastic reviews and WoW picks! Be sure to check her out!

POP.EDIT.LIT- Verushka always has the best recommendations so keep an eye out for her book recs! 

Book Haven- This is a wonderful blog run by Greg and he just started a feature that spotlights TAGLINES. I haven't seen anyone else doing this, so definitely check that out! 

All Books Considered - I love Eva's blog and I often find books here that I've never heard of, but sound great! 

Always Me- Lauren hosts the Music Monday feature/meme that I love so much and she has a terrific blog. Be sure to check it out as well! 

This week I'm also adding a book haul on here. This is from the whole month of August. Usually I don't get quite so many books, but I had a birthday this month and I went a little crazy!! I also received Milk and Honey, but it's not pictured because I loaned it to a friend. 

(A Court of Mist and Fury, End of Watch, And I Darken, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, The Woman in Cabin 10, The Picture of Dorian Gray graphic novel, The Rose & the Dagger, The Vegetarian, It Ends With Us, The Uncensored Picture of Dorian Gray, Angelfall, Hounded, The Mara Dyer Trilogy box set.) 

So that was my week!! Not too shabby. Overall the month of August was pretty great. How was your week??
