January 12-18, 2015
This week was significantly less exciting than my birthday week last week, but I still had a lot of fun! I visited my grandparents and extended family for a few days (they live a few hours away and I didn’t get a chance to see them on my birthday) and my aunt took me to a delicious belated birthday dinner and surprised me at the end with a Barnes & Noble giftcard! (“So you can buy books that I can borrow”- my family is hilarious, clearly).
This week was also back to work studying for graduate school exams after taking two weeks off for the holidays and my birthday. I’ve been consoling myself with my new books!
I started and finished Eleanor & Park this week (it was AMAZING… you can see my discussion post it inspired here) and started Splintered (which is really creative) and am still trudging through Wicked by Jennifer L Armentrout (which I’m so disappointed I’m not loving- I don’t think I’ve ever rated anything by her under 5 stars). I also pre-ordered a paperback copy of The Winner’s Curse with my giftcard and I’m so excited to start the series when it gets mailed to me in March!
What happened here this week:
Monday: I review The One by Kiera Cass
Wednesday: Wish Review and Blog Tour
Friday: I introduce and post the first in a new discussion feature: Cristina’s Close Look!
