Hi there! Once again, it’s Sunday, and time for my weekly wrap up post, where I recap everything of note that’s happened in the last seven days, including my Stacking the Shelves post.
Once again, I have no vlog. This week has been non-stop for me, with it being the last week of teaching before break, as well as my helping out backstage for my sister’s dance studio as they perform the Nutcracker. To say that I have been running since Wednesday morning is an understatement. I fell asleep Thursday night on the couch, curled up with my dog. It’s currently Friday night at 11 as I type this… tomorrow my projected working time is from 11am to 12am. I will be SLEEPING on Sunday and nothing else! But it’s all good, because I’m having tons of fun helping out 🙂 I’m the quick changer for Clara – which means that these lovely typing fingers have been put to use working with strange buttons and clasps that I’ve never seen outside of a dancer’s bag.
So here’s a picture of Kayla currently (when I’m not brain dead from exhaustion):
Currently reading: I’m zooming through five ARCs from NetGalley because whoopsies I remembered they publish at the end of January! I was approved for several Random House books, which totally made my week.
Currently listening to: Jumping back and forth between Zedd’s Clarity album and Optimist by Zoe Keating.
Currently watching: In the middle of Season 5 of Supernatural… I think. It’s been a while since I got to watch an episode! But no matter 🙂 I suppose you could say that I’m watching a million flashy tutus instead.
Currently eating/drinking: Since caffeine is a one way trip to full blown panic attacks, I’ve relied on a more natural route to get some energy this week. Tea and water have been my best friends – and lo and behold I’ve stopped getting headaches! I drink about 60 ounces of water per day, which I know still isn’t quite enough, but it’s more than the 4-8 oz I was getting before.
Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. Check out her blog here! Basically, it’s a time where I get to show off all the books I got in the past week (purchased, netgalley, borrowed, etc).
- Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare
- Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare
- Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare
My coworker was the sweetest and gave me a gift card to Barnes and Noble today, so during lunch break I drove over and spent nearly an hour deciding before picking the entire Infernal Devices series up!
- Entice by Erica Crouch
- And We Stay by Jenny Hubbard
- We Were Liars by E. Lockhart
- Where You’ll Find Me by Erin Fletcher
So I was down to my last three ARCs on NG… Almost cleared my queue… Wasn’t finding anymore to request (thankfully)… and then WHAM a new wave hit the YA section and I just couldn’t say no to them. Most were from publishers that I’ve been declined by before, but I decided to take a chance, and it paid off!
- Monday – Review of Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson
- Tuesday – Top Ten Tuesday
- Wednesday – No post, Merry Christmas!
- Thursday – Discussion Post (not sure of topic yet)
- Friday – Triple Review: Entice by Erica Crouch, And We Stay by Jenny Hubbard, and Forever by Karen Ann Hopkins
As always, this is a rough schedule, and I may add more or skip a day depending on how life rolls.
How was your week? Anything you’re looking forward to in the next few days? What sort of books did you pick up? And any good plans for Christmas?
