Retelling The Story: Weekly Recap #5: ARC August

I am linking up with these two epic memes:

Recently In real Life:
This week was fairly normal. I started editing and um, writerly confession: I kind of love editing. I know most say it's the worst, and yes, it can suck, but I love it.

I saw a couple movies, Southpaw and the new Terminator, both were really good but Southpaw's beginning was kind of boring.

The Books read:

I didn't get anything new but here's the few I read:

It wasn't quite as good of a reading week as it might seem, I was already half done with The Nightmare Dilemma and ended up DNF-ing Nightmare Charade. I'm not reviewing it because really the only reason I didn't finish it is that it's been forever since I read the first and it made it hard to get into the second and then impossible to get into the third. It's About Love will be reviewed soon, Fear Street eventually(I read it simply because I couldn't hold off any longer!)

arc august update:
Technically one was a DNF but it was still on the list so I'm counting it for ARC August.

I read Fear Street: The Lost Girl, It's About Love, and The Nightmare Charade(kind of).

Don't know what ARC August is? 
 It's an even hosted by Read Sleep Repeat and you can check out their post here and join in on the fun

Recently On The Blog:

I reviewed Made You Up, which I loved!

I talked all about some series I'm considering giving up on.

And I shared an excerpt/giveaway for The Nightmare Charade.

Umm. I think last week I mentioned the return of an old feature(about ships), so I'm still working on that. I'll probably post a review and a post about editing...and who really knows? Monday I will be posting a review for a book I didn't like, preview I've dubbed the main character the Supreme Douchebag, so look out for that. ;)

Currently Reading:

I'm slow with the reading right now, and I was behind on some review books but at the moment I'm still reading:8433500 and about to start:20933641

How was your week? What are you currently reading??? Have you seen any good movies recently??? Any new recommendations???


  1. Yeah... At first and at times editing can be fun but overall, just no. I used to think I liked it too. Now I LOATH editing. Good luck!

    I've been meaning to read the Nightmare book. Do you remember it being good?

  2. Great job with ARC August! I read three out of 12 of my ARCs the first week as well. I have the ARC It's about love and plan on reading it soon. I hope you enjoyed it.

  3. I haven't heard of these books but I hope you enjoy them all :)
