This week was pretty busy for me. Also, it’s getting RATHER WARM. Like, 35 degrees warm. Time for singlets, shorts and thongs.
– Monday the 20th of October was my blogoversary so that’s exciting! If you go back over to that post, there’s an international giveaway running, so don’t miss out on that
– This week, the rehearsals for Schools Spectacular also began – basically this massive event at the Entertainment Centre in Sydney with schools all across NSW – there’s dancing and singing and it’s lots of fun. So on Friday 180 of us from about 12 different schools started rehearsing – our section is Aussie rock, which is awesome, and we’re dancing to John Farnham’s Playing to Win.
We’ve got another rehearsal on Monday at the actual Entertainment Centre, and wow, I am going to be tired.

– It’s now very close to November, which means I’m at the finishing stages of planning my NaNo novel. On Monday I’m going to tell you ALLLLL about it. It’s going to be great.
– I’m also stacking the shelves this week!
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.
Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson – this one involves LISTS which is exciting. Thanks to the amazing Simon and Schuster for this one.
Atlantia by Ally Condie – another one I’m ridiculously excited about – ever since I saw the blurb I’ve wanted to read this book. So I plan to get into it soon.
Although my TBR is getting a LITTLE bit out of hand.
There are more books in the row behind. And also about 30 above my other bookshelf. And with NaNoWriMo coming, I’m not going to have much time to read. You’ll have to wait a little longer, my pretties! I love you, I promise.
Books Read Since Last Week
Pandora Jones Deception was better than the first one, I thought – mini-reviews of each will be up next week.
Fahrenheit 451 is one of my all-time favourite books – I read it for English and enjoyed it even more than last time.
Dune was for school as well – a mammoth 600-ish pages *faints* Sci-fi isn’t REALLY my thing but I did enjoy it…once I understood what was actually going on.
Corruption is really good, and I wish I could read it faster, but I’ve hardly had any time for reading this week!
North Child is a reread for school (I’m writing a retelling so I have to READ some, of course!). It’s even more beautiful than I remembered. Seriously, read it. It’s amazing.
BECAUSE I AM INTRIGUED.
Gif of the Week
This is from the Perks of Being a Wallflower movie, by the way. If you haven’t seen it, you should. It’s excellent (one of my favourite movies of all time, actually, and SO faithful to the book…well, what do you expect when the author is also the director?)
Posts on the Blog
Monday: Blogoversary!! Go and see how I started blogging, and enter the international giveaway.
Tuesday: I talked about the ten series I REALLY need to read – and almost everyone agreed that I need to read the Grisha trilogy quick-smart…book bloggers can be so pushy sometimes 🙂
Wednesday: I reviewed Dangerous Boys by Abigail Haas and concluded that people are terrifying.
Thursday: I made a Harry Potter tag! Feel free to do it on your own blog.
Friday: after forgetting MY OWN MEME, I posted Loony Blurbs. From now on they’ll be monthly, but I’ll let you know more info soon.
Saturday: I reviewed Golden by Jessi Kirby *whispers* Read it.
It’s the first time in a while that I’ve posted every day of the week. Good old scheduling. But I’ll be back to six days next week 🙂
