Weekly Recap: 8/7 - 8/13

My Super Exciting Life 

My brother visited this week and I accomplished basically nothing as far as my bookish life is concerned... whoops! I started reading a couple books and am currently working my way through Stalking Jack the Ripper. I had to put The Beauty of Darkness down for awhile when it started to lag, but I'll pick it back up after I finish this one! I also finally started Gone Girl!

What I lacked in blogging this week, I made up in doing stuff! My brother got in on Monday and all week we've been roaming around Orlando. On Wednesday we went to Universal Studios and had a great day riding coasters and wandering around Diagon Alley! We had lunch at the Leaky Cauldron, complete with Butterbeer. Yesterday we spent half the day at Disney's Blizzard Beach water park. I hadn't been to a water park since 2009 and wasn't sure I'd enjoy it, but we had a lot of fun! (I kept my eyes closed on Summit Plummet.) He also made me watch The Princess Bride for the first time. I was skeptical, but I liked it!
