Hello all! Hope you had a wonderful week; mine was strange, and had some way lows but some great highs as well. I have news: I didn’t buy a single book this week. I KNOW. I restrained myself. I’m still trying to finish all the books that I recently bought, won, or was gifted. My shelves are filled to bursting!
I finish the Archived on Tuesday, and since then I’ve been on a HUGE Mortal Instruments kick. I’m re-reading City of Bones for the third time over, since I keep forgetting what happened in the series and have to start again each time. Because I’m pathetic, and this is my fourth time trying to start the series. BUT I SWEAR THIS TIME I WILL COMMIT. I will not stop reading until I have closed the last page of City of Lost Souls, and am fully prepared for City of Heavenly Fire. I will be crying with you all; pass around the feels tissues. Oh and then I think I’ll go straight into The Infernal Devices series, because I love to torture myself and everyone says Clockwork Princess is the most painful thing known to man.
Oh and say hi to my lovely reading angel. She’s so pretty ❤
Heyyy you know what else is happening in the next few weeks? CATCHING FIRE IS RELEASING ON DVD/BLURAY. I will be at Target the day it’s released, because I need to put it on repeat and watch it so many times that I get sick of it. Hint: that won’t happen. CF was my favorite book, and I loved how dedicated they were to the original storyline.
And now I hope they change everything about the second half of Mockingjay, except for the resolution of the love triangle. That can stay.
One last thing: happy belated Valentine’s day to you all! Single, married, partnered – whatever you are, I hope you had a great day ❤ I know I did: my coworker made tiny little bundt cakes (like smaller than my fist – and I have child hands), and we at those at like 9am. Perfect breakfast, right? Then we munched on the Dove chocolates that had been set out for the patients (shhh!) for the rest of the day. I’d gone to chocolate heaven!
I lied: this is truly my last thing. BUT HAVE YOU SEEN THE COVER FOR RUIN AND RISING?? I AM DEAD SOMEONE COME SCRAPE MY REMAINS OFF THE COUCH.
*tries to breath* Nope not working *dies*
If you missed it, this week I shared:
- I am now on Bloglovin’!
Tennine books that likely going to make me swoon
- My review of Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi (no spoilers)
extended thoughtsessay on Ignite Me, it’s characters, and final resolution of plot and romance (spoilers!)
- My review of Alienated by Melissa Landers
This week I’m going to participate in TTT, review These Broken Stars by Meagan Spooner and Amie Kaufman, throw a discussion in there somewhere (haven’t settled on my topic yet), and review The Testing by Joelle Charbonneau. ALSO! I’m going to be starting a new feature here on the blog, so keep an eye out for that. If I have time this week, I’ll throw it in there, but for sure I’ll have it up within the next two or three weeks 🙂
And now I have a question(s) for you: do you prefer The Mortal Instruments or The Infernal Devices? Out of the TMI series, which is your favorite book? Is Clockwork Princess going to completely destroy me? How was your Valentine’s day? DID YOU SEE THE RUIN AND RISING COVER???
On a serious note, you all should really check out Chantelle’s post here; it’s a great reminder to just enjoy blogging, and not worry about all the little details that supposedly make you “better”!
