My week was pretty low-key, which HOORAY. After last week I totally relished in having a slow, almost boring(but not really) week. I spent a good portion of Monday and Tuesday watching Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt(yeah, I got sucked in), and then the rest of the week doing my general daily tasks. Nothing exciting to report, but really, again after that last week I’m pretty happy about it.
Monday I reviewed The Cemetery Boys by Heather Brewer. It was an okay read, but I’ve mostly forgotten it.
Tuesday I shared some more O.W.L. Report mini-reviews.
Wednesday I participated in the Ultimate Book Tag. I had a lot of fun answering those questions!
Thursday I talked about the unpredictability of “me!” books.
Friday I reviewed Amelia Anne is Dead and Gone, which I ended up enjoying much more than I expected.

Question of the Week:
Okay, I admit to totally having an ulterior motive with this question, but I’m curious: What question would you love to see asked in an author interview if you were to read one?
