Weekly Roundup: 11.25 - 12.1

I hope everyone's had a fun, safe, drama-free Thanksgiving weekend. I didn't get to do any Black Friday shopping but my weekend was still super busy between prepping the Thanksgiving meal, eating that meal, and a planning a meetup with friends that included an all-you-can-eat sushi binge and watching Catching Fire at the drive-in theater. I was debating whether I should do a movie review for Catching Fire or not, but I decided against it. All I have to say was that I surprisingly loved it. It was loads better than the first movie and much better than the books. And oh my word, Finnick. There's been a lot of hooplah about how Sam Calflin wasn't right for the role, but I certainly enjoyed watching him.

Thanksgiving Weekend Readathon

For some odd reason, I didn't expect to be so busy during this weekend and so I planned to do a mini personal readathon. That was a failure. I did manage to finish one book, but I wish I made a bit more progress. I'll do more comprehensive reviews later in the week.

All Our Yesterdays

Time-travel, moral dilemmas, and an atypical love triangle. I went into this book with no expectations and greatly enjoyed it.

I tried, but I didn't enjoy what I read. Maybe it gets better, but I had a lot of issues with Elise's views in life. You know there's going to be a problem when someone thinks they're too good to listen to pop music.

Just started reading this book, so I don't have any opinions on it yet. I just hope it's good.
