Genie's Weekly News (54) - New contemporary novels, concerts and reading out of my comfort zone

Sunday, 18 December 2016

As Christmas inches closer bookstores get busier than ever, and of course my book hauls get even larger than usual (but more on that next week!). For now, here's some other updates:

Stunning cover and the story is beginning to match it! 

Recommendation of the Week

I finally understand why this book is such a popular 'cult classic' - once again reading out of my comfort zone with some Chuck Palahniuk, but it was definitely worth it.

Book Haul

Stay tuned for my Christmas book haul next week, but for now I have two titles which I'm really excited for! Thanks again to my #AusYA Secret Santa for It Ends With Us.

What I've Been Watching

I'd always heard good things about Poldark, but hadn't started watching it until now. I'm so glad that I finally have though as I loved the first series and can't wait to begin the second! Also, if there's any other historical dramas out there you'd recommend, let me know.

Other Updates

I was lucky enough to see Coldplay live on Tuesday and they were (as expected) AMAZING. The amount of energy they have on stage and the design of the production itself made for a fantastic night. I'd definitely see them again!

What are you looking forward to the most about Christmas?


  1. Thanks for sharing my review!

    So many people went to Coldplay last week I swear haha. Good to hear you enjoyed it!

    As for my christmas, I'm looking forward to sitting down and doing nothing!! I've been pulling 11-12 hours days for uni for the past month so it's nice to be able to relax haha

    1. I know right? It was so popular! Relaxing definitely sounds like a good idea.

  2. It sounds like you had a great week! It's always nice to venture out of your comfort zone when reading, and I'm glad you've been successful with that. Thanks for sharing and, as always, fabulous recap! <3
