Hello, everyone! I feel like it’s been a while since I’ve last posted. Today I’m here with a weekly wrap up of what I’ve been doing throughout the week. Sunday Funday was created by Cristina @ Girl In The Pages, so go check her out!
Life In Books:
My life in books hasn’t been all that eventful for a while. The last book I completed was The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan, and I started The Young Elites by Marie Lu. I’ll have to get back to that book soon. It’s really good, but it’s turned me off quite a bit due to its similarities to a couple other books.
I’m looking forward to two new releases this month, though. They actually both come out on October 28, and they are Waterfall by Lauren Kate and In The Afterlight by Alexandra Bracken.
This is actually the first time I’ve seen the cover for Waterfall, and it’s extremely disappointing. I really hate cover changes, especially when they’re bad cover changes. The cover for the first book was so pretty and this is just… meh. I doubt I would have picked up the first book if it had had a cover like this (well, Teardrop had been a Christmas present, but still). I’m hoping the contents of the book are better than the cover.
That’s all xD
Life In Music:
I discovered a new band that I’m obsessed with, and they are The Pretty Reckless, with Taylor Momsen as their lead singer. I’m in love with this band. They’re so amazing, and I think that Momsen has an amazing voice, especially when she’s singing something acoustic or live. Here are my favorite songs by them at the moment:
- Miss Nothing
- Light Me Up
- Just Tonight (And don’t miss the acoustic version performed by Taylor and her guitarist Ben Phillips! Her voice is so raw, but so, so good.)
I actually bought one of their CDs today, but it ended up being one of their EPs, which was a little disappointing.
I also found a person on YouTube who does fantastic covers of a lot of music I’m into. 😀
This week I was invited by a friend to attend her church’s Trunk or Treat, which was really fun! I met a lot of nice people and some even recognized me from the previous times I’d been there.
I also had been bitten by the dye bug and felt that it was time to color my hair again, so I decided to bleach my hair again today (a different section!). I ended up washing out the bleach too soon, but the color was much lighter than I’d anticipated regardless, so for that I was happy. I decided to go red this time, but I’m not sure when I’m actually going to dye my hair. Hopefully soon. The products I used (and will be using) are:
- L’Oreal Quick Blue bleach
- Salon Care 30 Volume developer
- Beyond the Zone Color Jamz in Crimson Storm
I got all my products from Sally’s Beauty Supply, and I’m excited to see how the color comes out!
That’s all that went on during my week, other than a ton of homework. What have you been up to? Any good books you read last week, or are there any books you’re looking forward to? Are you a fan of The Pretty Reckless? Have you ever dyed your hair a fun color? Let me know!
