My Week

After finishing my project for school last week, this week seemed like such a RELIEF. I basically had nothing due except for a discussion, and I’ve been using it to try and get a bit ahead. Mostly because I thought I had a paper due this coming week on the 8th. . . but it’s not due until the 18th. While I’m a little annoyed I didn’t double-check, I’m also kind of glad because it’s really made me get into gear.

Other than school, this was a pretty low-key week in the best way. On Thursday I went to the city banquet with my dad, which I have not been to since high school. It’s a banquet for city employees + their families, but since I’ve been away I haven’t gone in. . . probably 10 years? It was dinner + door prizes(though, sadly, no door prizes for us.)

On Book Blog Bake

Monday I reviewed The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness.
Tuesday I shared 10 books to read if you liked the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.
Wednesday I talked about my TBR update and how I have 15 books that MUST be read by the end of 2015.
Thursday I posted my September wrap-up.


A Wrinkle in Time: The Graphic Novel by Madeleine L’Engle(story), adapted by Hope Larson
Through the Woods by Emily Carroll

Bingo update:

Re-read- Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas
A Borrowed book: Queen of Shadows by Sarah J Maas(I pre-ordered a copy, but Amazon was slow so I borrowed a kindle copy from Terri)
Author shares first initial-Crown of Midnight by Sarah J Maas
Sept/Oct/Nov Release-Tonight the Streets Are Ours by Leila Sales
Book set in another country- Wildlife in Fiona Woods(it’s Aussie YA, so it takes place in Australia)
LGBTQIA: Symptoms of Being Human by Jeff Garvin
lol-worthy: Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli(seriously, one of the few books that makes me laugh every.time. And I’ve read it a LOT of times now!)
Historical fiction: Vengeance Road by Erin Bowman
Horror: Through the Woods by Emily Carroll


Through the Woods by Emily Carroll(which I read right away, clearly)

 Question of the Week:

Here’s a fun one: do you have any weird sleeping habits? I have SO MANY. I’m a very particular sleeper. For one, I cannot sleep with any sort of steady light coming in(my room faces the highway, so car lights come in, but for some reason that doesn’t bother me?), so in most places I’ve lived with street lights outside I’ve had to use room darkening curtains. I also can’t sleep in silence, so I have to have a fan on OR sometimes I use a white noise app on my phone. I also hate anything that feels constricting when I sleep, so I don’t sleep with a sheet between me and the blanket because it always gets tangled. I also have to hug a pillow.




September 2015 Wrap-Up

I think the two themes of September were SCHOOL and FALL. I don’t know why, but I’ve been one of those people who gets really into fall. . . which might not be that remarkable, but you have to understand up until this year that fall was my LEAST favorite season. I think one thing […]

#TackletheTBR Update: 15 by the end of 2015

A while ago, I posted about how I was concentrating this year on bringing down my number of owned, unread books.
