Week in Review is a weekly post in which I wrap up what’s happening in my life, in books, and in blogging (inspired by Anna @ Anna Reads)!
What I did:
Although I’ve been done with classes for about two weeks my last exam was on Tuesday so I can now “officially” say that IT’S SUMMER! So, to celebrate my first full day of not having anything to stress about I did…absolutely nothing except drink coffee and read a book. In my pajamas. It was heavenly! Of course I can’t do nothing ALL summer so later in the week I went to dinner and the bookstore with my best friend who I barely got to see at all this school year. It was so nice to be able to catch up with her!
I also watched the Season 4 premiere of TEEN WOLF! This show…I just…no words. I love it dearly and I don’t think I will ever get enough of it. Ever. Stiles is just the perfect human being. ❤ On that note…
Links I Loved:
- Oh how fitting! Stefani over at Caught Read Handed recapped all 3 seasons of TEEN WOLF in case your just a casual fan of the show and not a hard core fandom member like me.
- Ella @ The Filipina Booknote answered the question “Do you let personal experiences or your emotions affect the way you review/rate a book?”.
- Dana @ The Nerdy Journalist took beautiful photos of her little cousin as a young Lara Jean from one of my favorite contemporaries, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before.
- And of course I must round out my links with the pretty much perfect EpicReads ladies. If you’re new to the world of book nerds, you may need some help on the lingo. If not – read this anyway!
Books I Added to My Shelves:
I almost didn’t buy these I swear. But it’s okay because I had a coupon and these were all really cheap anyway…Right?! 😉
