I was with this small group of people, and we were escaping or on the run or both. I don't remember if we legitimately did something bad so it was our fault we were on the run in the first place or if we got captured for no good reason and escaped, I really only remember sneaking past some guards. But then the dream switched to a different perspective, and I was seeing a group of cops gathered around the body of a person one of us apparently killed (I think I was actually experiencing this from inside the body---I told you dreams are weird, don't ask how that works), talking about how terrible we were. And it hit me that we *were* terrible because look how we were affecting the lives of innocent bystanders! But on the flip side, I was still aware that we wouldn't have to be on the run harming innocent bystanders if the authorities weren't capturing and chasing after us in the first place. But at that point we really were criminals, even if we started out innocent, so we couldn't just stop running, which created this messed up loop.
So it was just a very weird thing have this kind of moral dilemma, this both sides of the story moment, while in a dream. I think all the books are finally starting to get to my head, haha. But hey, it's not a bad thing that even my subconscious is learning these life lessons ;-)
I took a spontaneous two-day blogging break this week. Or last week? To me, Sunday is a new week, but the wording is very confusing when I do my Sunday posts. Anyway, I realized, at midnight, that I got my TTT posts confused and did the topic for this coming week instead. On the bright side, I don’t have to worry about making my TTT post this week since it’s already done lol.
I also skipped the Wednesday discussion post because I couldn’t decide what to talk about and *sigh* I was just exhausted. So instead I used the day to catch up on some things and to apply for a job.
Anyway, I’m getting off topic. I should be back to my regularly scheduled blogging this week 🙂
Oh! One more thing. This isn’t an update about my blog, but fellow blogger Anissa @ She Reads Too Much has just launched a subscription box company! How awesome is that? It’s called FairyLoot, and you should check it out!
Books I Finished:
This turned out to be the week of the djinn for me! I didn’t really plan it that way, these were just the books I felt like reading. The Djinn Wars was a bit anticlimactic but not bad. Summoned started off on the wrong foot with me, but it ended up getting better. I didn’t really love the characters, but the plot hooked me. And I had already bought Stifled while it was on sale lol, so I read that one too.
Song of the Week:
“Holes in the Sky” by M83 ft. HAIM – I know this is on one of the Divergent soundtracks, so everyone’s probably heard it already. But if you haven’t, you should because it’s just a great song.
In Case You Missed It:
Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Cemeteries
Graphic Novel Review: Saga Vol. 4 by Brian K. Vaughan & Fiona Staples – In which I talk about spider sex and being attracted to robots. Because everyone knows that’s what the best reviews are about.
Book Review: The Shifter (The Healing Wars Book 1) by Janice Hardy
