My week was definitely not as exciting as Alana’s (*sobs*), but it was similarly filled with assignments, work and books. I watched The Giver last night and absolutely LOVED it. I’m glad I went into the movie without knowing anything and having not read the books because I managed to just enjoy the movie rather than make comparisons. Totally guilty of always comparing book-to-movie adaptations. *hangs head in shame*
Oh well! I hope your week was more exciting than mine 😛
My week was absolutely jam-packed with assignments, birthdays and demolishing books. I read the Maze Runner series and the Lunar Chronicles series on the train, (I have to wait till 2015 for the next one?! NOT. COOL.) when I reaaaally should have been doing my assignments. But they were handed in on time so it worked out okay! And… oh yeah. I MET AND HUGGED ORLANDO BLOOM. Not going to lie… I may never wash my arm again. This years first Oz Comic Con Sydney was SO much fun! My friend and I spent waaaay too much money on books, t-shirts and the cutest Disney and Supernatural Pop Vinyls! Plus I got to see the cast of Veronica Mars.
Best. Day. Ever.
