February 2-8, 2015
This week I had a whirlwind mini-vacation to the coast where it was unseasonably sunny and beautiful. I was able to reconnect with a lot of my college friends and professors and had an absolutely wonderful time soaking up the sunshine and doing some tourist-y activities! I toured some really cool historic ships in the harbor, tried a lot of new food thanks to my best friends (I can’t believe I’ve been missing hummus in my life for so long!) and talked to one of my favorite professors about co-writing an academic article! It was also my best friend’s birthday a week ago so I got to have a belated birthday celebration dinner with him! (And gave him the gift that keeps on giving- YA novels of course). We also talked about how we’ll be buddy reading the Game of Thrones in the future!
This week was a pretty successful reading week for me considering I was gone for half of it, and didn’t have much time to read (I usually can’t read on planes because of motion sickness). I finished The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black (review will be up on Monday) and inhaled Fairest by Marissa Meyer in just a little over a day! This weekend I started Damsel Distressed by Kelsey Macke and I’m really excited about the psychological themes, as well as being excited about using the new bookmarks I treated myself to that I can use to keep notes while I read!
