It blows my mind that last weekend was the end of the holidays. It's been a week, but they feel like they occurred months ago. Anyway, this week was all about getting back into the schedule.
Two books isn't bad. It's not great either. I read my first JLA book, and the second to a series I was pretty excited about. Neither book blew me away, but neither was awful either. I've written reviews for both.
I just started it and it's very slow so far. I know that is the style, so I'm hoping I'll get more "into" it as I get further along in my reading. Right now, I'm trying to finish some school work before getting very far into the book. Also, I love the cover.
On Monday I reviewed Tessa Gratton's book, The Lost Sun.
Mari did a WoW for Far From You, and I'm just as excited for this book as she is.
I also did a DNF review for Above.
In Let's Talk About Gorgeous, I gushed about Josephine Angelini's covers because they are my favourites, and I asked people to tell me about their favourite covers.
It was Mari's birthday this week! Happy birthday to her! She's 18 now which means she's an adult and old. In all seriousness, it's an enormous milestone and I hope she enjoys this milestone. She got some pretty great books though! Here's her STS/Showcase Sunday.
The Week That Was
I finished all my actual applications for university (yay!) and now I have to start applying for scholarships and grants. Hopefully I'm accepted to somewhere really good soon.
I was in a surprisingly good mood all week, and I think part of that can be attributed to my favourite hockey team having their longest win streak of the season (4 games. It's a big deal folks!) and I think part of my New Year's Resolution is just to enjoy the moment more. It's a little lame, but I picked "Sparkle" as my word of 2014 and changed my phone's background to a diamond in order to remind myself that every day is a day to enjoy and make the most of.
2014 is off to a great start for me, and I can't wait to see what this year will bring.
Song of the Week
This song is SO MUCH FUN. So this week I heard this really great preview for a song that was trap, and I would have used that preview because I listened to it about a billion times, but that song comes out tomorrow. Instead, I searched for other trap songs and found this. Trap is like trance + rap so there's electronic sounds in really cool beats. It's not for everyone, but I love this one, especially how it changes the pace of the rhythm.
