Freshers Flu Ruined My Week

This past week I’ve been bogged down with the flu, so I haven’t been up to much unfortunately. It’s gotten to the point where I can’t really remember what I’ve been doing this week because of the amount of time I’ve spent in bed. I had my first few days back at University and started to think about my industrial placement and where I might want to have that.


Reading:

Currently Reading:
I’m actually not reading anything at the moment, apart from a group read with my friend for Girls of Paper and Fire. I’ve currently got a poll on my Instagram stories to choose between A Curse so Dark and Lonely and Kingsbane – I just couldn’t choose between them at all.

Finished Reading:
Eve of Man, by Giovanna and Tom Fletcher.
I really started to enjoy it at the start but I feel like the story went downhill. I’m not sure why, but I didn’t click with it completely. I will get my review written up on it soon though, and I reckon my rating will be around 3 stars. I do have a soft spot for this story because I love Giovanna Fletcher and I think that it’s an amazing idea to write a book as a married couple.


Watching:

Unbelievable:
I binge watched this within a day, as it got me well and truly hooked. I resonated with the characters, and just wanted justice for Marie all the way through. It was the sort of premise that meant that I was terrified of the situation even happening to me and was rooting for the police officers to arrest the man. The acting was also amazing! It really brought the whole thing to life.

Criminal, UK:
I’m only one and a half episodes through, but it’s really interesting. I love watching crime shows, and this is a different premise to ones that I’ve seen before – being completely centred around the interviewing process and getting a suspect to crack. Can’t wait to watch more.


Blogging:

I have been ill so it hasn’t been good at all lately, but luckily I have managed to upload a few posts. I want to make sure that I’m getting some more posts up that centre around Public Relations or student life in general, but I’m sure it’ll pick up soon.
