The Week in Review

I decided that I would do a weekly recap, and link up with The Sunday Post, which is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer, that was inspired in part by In My Mailbox. It’s a post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog. This week seemed to fly by for me, which was great. I felt very accomplished grading my students’ work so I’ll be able to do report cards.

On the home front, I didn’t do much than read Jennifer L. Armentrout’s The Power, and one of my ARCs. On Sunday I joined a volleyball league. It was fun to get out, and ply a sport with friends. we went to dinner afterwards, and that was also nice. Nothing else really happened during the week, until Saturday. For the fourth year in a row, I attended AMC Theater’s Best Picture Show Marathon. Basically, AMC hosts marathons of all the OSCAR nominated films for best picture. I enjoyed all the films for the most part, except Mad Max. I mean, really?!? There was no other film that could have been nominated instead? *cough Straight Outta Compton cough* After nearly 24 hours of films, I’m exhausted.

  1. Oh wow, it sounds like you’ve been busy! The volleyball league sounds fun, and so does the movie marathon! I suck at sports that involve balls though (there’s no way to say that without sounding dirty, so I don’t even try anymore lol), so volleyball is not for me. Maybe it’s a hand-eye coordination thing. Anyway, glad you had a good and productive week!

      Right?!? There were so many other movies that could have been picked. I found that to be one of the strangest nominations in years.

      Now that I’m over that cold I had, I hope to read more this week. So far… not off to a great start. LOL!

      I did pretty well this year staying up, however I catnapped during three films. Hahaha! I think it was all the caffeine I ingested.

      I was glad Brie Larson won, too! I really enjoyed the film. Now I want to read the book. I also want to read The Revenant, and The Big Short. Both films were also pretty great.
