What happened this week, you ask?
– I read some books, as usual
– I participated in a drama festival, which was a lot of fun (except for the sound tech people messing up the start)
– I realised how many assignments are due in the next two weeks and decided to drop out, effective immediately.
…okay, maybe not.
– I also acquired some lovely new books.
Stacking the Shelves is a book meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. It’s all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual.
The Rapunzel Dilemma by Jennifer Kloester – Thanks Penguin!!!
FROM THE LIBRARY
Are You Seeing Me? by Darren Groth. Based on Cait’s awesome review over at Notebook Sisters, I decided this was a book I needed in my life. And it was just STARING at me from the new book stand at my school library. I had to borrow it.
The Cinderella Moment by Jennifer Kloester. I’m still not sure whether this comes before The Rapunzel Dilemma or is just with different characters, but either way I wanted to read it! In fact, this will be the 100th book I read this year. And it is EXCELLENT so far.
Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas. Because my friend (IRL friend, everyone…yep, I have excellent reading buddies in real lifes) told me it was way better than Throne of Glass (we both weren’t ridiculously impressed by it). So I have high hopes!
Everybody Sees the Ants by A S King. Got this because I heard about it somewhere. Although I have no idea what it’s about. Maybe I’ll make up a blurb for it.
Hate List by Jennifer Brown. Because I read Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult, also about a school shooting, and loved it. Although nobody told me that it was A BIG BOOK.
FROM MY SISTER
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin. Sophie informed me that she wouldn’t co-write a review of Dorothy Must Die unless I read this first. *bows* Yes, master.
ALSO, how pretty do these two look side by side?
Books Read Since Last Week
Butter by Erin Lange was really interesting, although very unbelievable in some aspects. It was a 3-star read and I might end up reviewing it eventually.
Half Bad by Salle Green was FREAKIN AWESOME and I loved how much it made me think about good vs. evil. When’s the next one coming out again?
Wildlife by Fiona Wood was…well, after so many people had recommended it on the Twitters, it fell short of my expectations. But that’s not the book’s fault – a lot of people have loved it. Will review this one 🙂
Gif of the Week
I should really watch Supernatural.
