Week in Review: Hey, February (2/1/15)

Week in Review

In Life

Is it just me, or did January seem like it never even happened? Because that’s exactly how it felt to me. I made it through midterms and crazy school stuff, and now I’m making my game-plan for February. It’s pretty much one goal: stop being so stressed. Stress is my downfall; we don’t mix well.

How To Get Away With Murder, my current TV obsession, just came back on after a two-month hiatus and OH MY GOSH. It just keeps getting better! If I’m not reading as much in the coming weeks, this show will be why.

Today is Superbowl Sunday, which means that while the game is on I’ll most likely be sitting in my room reading because I am NOT a football fan. I don’t see the point of it to be honest. If someone does, “enlighten me then.” <– Bad Fifty Shades of Grey movie trailer reference — sorry.

I’m actually really looking forward to February because my blogiversary is on February 7th, as is my dad’s birthday, and my February break is this month! Yay for more days off of school! My parents and I are thinking of scheduling some college visits for that week, which I’m quite excited about. I also entered a art scholarship contest for one of the schools I’m interested in so wish me luck everybody! 😉

Sweet by Emmy Laybourne (Thanks to Macmillan!)

I squealed so hard when I saw that I was approved for this one! I’m really excited about this one and even though I requested it on NetGalley I never actually thought I would be approved so AH YAY!! It looks really unique and unlike anything I’ve ever read before so as I’ve said before — I can’t wait!

Recent, Current & Upcoming Reads

RECENT: Diamonds in the Rough by Michelle Madow | I thought this was a really great sequel to the first book, The Secret Diamond Sisters. My review will be posted tomorrow!

CURRENT: The Walls Around Us by Nova Ren Suma | I started this one last night, and I’m really intrigued by it. It’s being pitched as “Orange Is the New Black Swan.”


Book News

I normally don’t talk book news but there are some things that I wanted to mention this week, hence this section of the post.

  • Volition by Lily Paradis is coming out on February 9th. My review will be posted on the 11th (where I gush about how amazing it is), but I wanted to give you guys a heads up: the eBook is available for pre-order on Amazon for $1.99 until it’s release day, when the price goes up. I highly recommend you take advantage of the price because I ADORED the book. Since my review isn’t going up until after the release I just wanted to let you all know! Oh, and check out the description box on Amazon for a snippet of my review! 😉
  • I JUST FOUND OUT THAT JENNIFER E. SMITH IS RELEASING A NEW BOOK THIS COMING SEPTEMBER. UM, WHY DID NO ONE TELL ME THIS WAS HAPPENING? (As you can tell I LOVE Jennifer E. Smith’s books.) To top off the excitement of me finding out about Hello, Goodbye, and Everything in Between, it’s cover was recently released. PS: There is also news that Hailee Steinfeld has been cast as Hadley in The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight movie!!!

  1. I’m really interested in getting to read Sweet. Hope that happens soon! I actually haven’t seen How to Get Away With Murder but a LOT of people talk about it. I want to jump on the bandwagon sometime too!

I'd love to hear what you have to say!
