June 30-July 6, 2014
As most of you know, I just got back from Hawaii this week! I got home in time to celebrate the fourth of July with my family and boyfriend, and yesterday we saw The Fault In Our Stars movie (which was quite faithful to the book, and I’ll give more of my thoughts on it later this week) and ate at my favorite Japanese restaurant (we have a not-on-purpose habit of eating non American cuisine over the fourth of July holiday for some reason).
I’ve also enjoyed a nice vacation from work, but I’ll be heading back starting tomorrow, into what is our busiest time of year. Despite this, I’m hoping to get quite a bit of reading done (so I don’t fall victim to library due dates) and need to catch up on posting several reviews from books I read over vacation!
Aside from reading, I also enjoy certain video games, tv shows, and musical artists. A game series I grew up playing was the Nancy Drew mystery games by Her Interactive, no doubt drawn to them by the fact that I loved the book series growing up. Though I’ve never met anyone else in person who plays the games, the games have a large and loyal following and can be found at your local Target. This week I finished the newest in the series, The Shattered Medallion. It’s really a treat to be able to play in a world that you’ve grown to love through a book series.
What I’m Reading this Week:
Great bookish posts this week in the blogging world:
The Notebook Sisters featured books with nice parental units, and pondered the absence of most parents in YA.
Stefani at Caught Read Handed started a great new weekly feature, Quote Quoted.
What Happened Here This Week:
Wednesday: Dreams of Gods & Monsters sparked mixed feelings in my review.
Saturday: I recapped my recent Hawaiian vacation!
