I was really busy this week because. . . well, remember my good news from last week? I’m going back to school to get a Master’s of Science in library science, starting in August! And I’ve been busy trying to get things set up(you know, registering for classes, filling out a gazillion forms, etc.) I’m going half time for the first semester, and the first two classes I’m taking are online, so this doesn’t mean a move or anything(yet), but I’m excited to start feeling like I’m working towards something again. The job search can be so draining that way, especially when I’ve always been an ambitious person. For now the job search continues, but at least I have goals now. I’ve been considering this particular grad school option for two years now, on and off, but something always stopped me. In March I decided it was time to do something about it.
Monday I reviewed Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson.
Wednesday I reviewed Second Position by Katherine Locke.
Thursday I shared another installment of my On the Maybe shelf feature.
Friday I reviewed Conspiracy of Blood and Smoke by Anne Blankman.
Maybe in Another Life by Taylor Reid Jenkins
Midwinterblood by Marcus Sedgewick
What We Saw by Aaron Hartzler
I’ve mostly been on a book buying ban because I’ve been trying to get through the TBR, but I got the chance to go to a bookstore on Friday and that’s rare where I live. Plus, I haven’t bought books in months(except for The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet, but I had a gift card and already read that), so I figured one or two couldn’t hurt.

Question of the Week:
What was your last 5 star read? Mine was Midwinterblood! (if you don’t rate books at all, just share your last book where you thought “wow, this is going on my favorites shelf!”)
