Last week quietness was the calm before the storm – had a super tiring week this week! Had a lot going on at work and personally, still getting used to the food thing but feeling a bit more optimistic as I’ve been able to find some takeaway options.
Also watched Age of Ultron on release night, it was good and please don’t hate me but I accidentally fell asleep halfway through. The action scenes were fantastic, but there was a forced romance, lack of plot and a lot of witty banter seemed to be missing in this one. It’s still worth seeing for Hulk vs Hulkbuster fighting scene though.
Got my fantasy Lootcrate as well – loving some of these things. I think I’ll cancel my Lootcrate subscription now, ending up with a lot of random bits and pieces. I subscribed to Marvel Collector Corps in its place, because I saw spoilers on Instagram about what it contains.

Bright Before Sunrise by Tiffany Schmidt – I’ve heard mixed reviews about this one, so not sure what to think.
My Life as a White Trash Zombie by Diana Rowland – I’ve had this recommended to me a few times and couldn’t resist
- Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers – I’ve just started this but mannnn, it’s soo good already. I mean you can’t go wrong with Assassin Nuns.
- The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins – It was definitely compelling and thrilling throughout, but I kind of expected more twists and turns. I give this one 4 stars.
