Saturday I finished Cress and Fairest. Then proceeded to watch the entire season of Daredevil on Netflix. In my defense, it’s not like I didn’t go out into the world over the weekend (unlike the previous weekend). I ran some errands Saturday, stopped at the library to pick up three more books, and socialized…a little. And on Sunday, I saw the new Avengers movie with my dad (which was AMAZING, by the way). I laughed so hard during parts of the movie, which is one of the reasons I love these movies. I like comedy thrown in the midst of dark times or the unknown. If you can keep your sense of humor during the tough times, I believe you can get through anything.
I started Prodigy Sunday as well. I did not read a lot, just maybe a hundred or so pages. I was too engrossed in Daredevil. But yesterday….after work I got home, made dinner, watched last week’s Supernatural. An episode I thoroughly enjoyed. It was a little more carefree and funny than the previous episodes (of course it was still dark and sad because let’s face it…it’s the Winchester Brothers). After that ended, I spent the rest of the night reading…I was maybe sixty pages from the end of the book when my eyes became so heavy and I just couldn’t read any more so I regretfully put it down and went to bed.
And this morning, after getting dressed and making coffee, my hands grabbed the book and I dived into the world of Day and June. Part of me wishes I would have stopped at the first book, and will not read the third. Not because the writing it bad, or the story itself. It’s just I need something happy to happen. After the Divergent series, I want a happy ending. Or at least mostly happy. So with a little dread, I grabbed Champion this morning as I left for work. And the dread continues as I read the synopsis.
“June and Day have sacrificed so much for the people of the Republic—and each other—and now their country is on the brink of a new existence. June is back in the good graces of the Republic, working within the government’s elite circles as Princeps Elect while Day has been assigned a high level military position. But neither could have predicted the circumstances that will reunite them once again. Just when a peace treaty is imminent, a plague outbreak causes panic in the Colonies, and war threatens the Republic’s border cities. This new strain of plague is deadlier than ever, and June is the only one who knows the key to her country’s defense. But saving the lives of thousands will mean asking the one she loves to give up everything he has. With heart–pounding action and suspense. Marie Lu’s bestselling trilogy draws to a stunning conclusion.”
Something to look forward to at my lunch break, yeah?
