Weekly Wrap Up 18

Posted August 31, 2014 by Kathy in Wrap-Up / 16 Comments

My Weekly Wrap Up is my version of The Sunday Post hosted by Kimba at Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

This week flew by so fast for me.  I had jury duty for 2 days so I got to get out of going to work (which was a nice break).  I got a lot of reading done while at the courthouse and luckily I was dismissed.  The trial was going to be 7 weeks long so I would have hated to miss that much work.  My company pays for jury duty but I just would be so behind on my work.  I had Friday off for some appointments, so I have a 4 day weekend (in the US Monday is a holiday)!!  So this was a good week!!

Here is what happened last week on the blog:

Currently reading:

Trial by FireThis world is trying to kill Lily Proctor. Her life-threatening allergies keep her from enjoying experiences that others in her hometown of Salem take for granted, which is why she is determined to enjoy her first high school party with her best friend and longtime crush, Tristan. But after a humiliating incident in front of half her graduating class, Lily wishes she could just disappear.

Suddenly, Lily is in a different Salem—one overrun with horrifying creatures and ruled by powerful women called Crucibles. Strongest and cruelest of them all is Lillian . . . Lily’s other self in this alternate universe.

What makes Lily weak at home is what makes her extraordinary in New Salem. In this confusing world, Lily is torn between responsibilities she can’t hope to shoulder alone and a love she never expected.


Currently watching:

Now that True Blood is over I have been trying to find a new favorite show to watch.  So on Netflix I have been catching up on these shows:

  • Once Upon A Time (ABC) – this is a cute series but I am getting annoyed with the main character Emma.  She keeps saying she knows when people are lying but why doesn’t she know the mayor is the evil queen?? I’m only on season 1 so maybe they later explain it.
  • Bitten (Syfy) – the guys are hot in this show but again I’m getting annoyed with the main character Elena. I understand she wants to try to live a normal life but I think she’s being cold hearted at times to her ex-lover Clay (who is a new crush for me!!).
  • Outlander (Starz) – I’m a huge fan and I’m loving this series.  It’s the 4th episode so soon it will have a break until December (or January).  This makes me mad since we still haven’t seen Jamie and Claire as a couple yet!!!

  1. I am so glad you didn’t have to do jury duty… 7 weeks!! WOW.. that would’ve been quite the trial too I bet. Outlander is taking a break?? I just looked it up.. all 8 episodes will air in a row. So Sept 27th will be the last episode for season 1. Then we’ll have to wait until 2015 for the next season. So long a wait!!

      It would have been a really long trial. It was a medical case so it would have had a lot of details so I know the days would have been hard to sit through. So luckily I got dismissed. I hate what Starz is doing with Outlander. It’s only so they get more viewers but it really sucks. Just when we get to the good parts of the book we’ll hit a break. They are mean lol!

      This is my 4th time having to report for jury duty. And if I was chosen this would have been my 3rd trial. So I am happy I didn’t get picked lol. Thanks for stopping by!!

      Hi Jenea! I saw that they added more Once Upon a Time so I’m hoping to get caught up before the new season starts. Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

  2. Yay for a long weekend, and also for not getting stuck with jury duty. Nice post on True Blood, I never saw the show but I know a lot of people really like it. It’s great that they did a good job with the adaptation, that can be tricky with a beloved series.

      I got so lucky not getting picked for jury duty (I was really getting worried there lol). Yes, we finally have a long weekend. We won’t have another holiday until November so this is nice to be off. I did like how True Blood separated itself from the book series but the last 2 seasons were terrible. They should of then gotten advice from Charlaine Harris lol. But its over and I was happy with the finale. Thanks for stopping by and have a a great week!!

  3. I love Outlander ! I agree with Bitten, she’s complaining all the time and got on my nerves. I like Clay running around naked, like any normal female would, but if he would crack a smile just once, that would be so much better ! I have to try again Once upon a time, see if I like it better… Have a great week !
