Week in Review: 2/15/15

Week in Review


In Life

Yesterday was my first day of February break, and I am SO thankful. Life’s been pretty stressful lately with school, tests, holidays, college planning stuff… I’m in for a much needed break!

Yesterday was Valentine’s Day, which (like always) I spend with my mom as my dad was working, and then celebrated after dinner and exchanged cards and gifts! I also started working on an English essay, because YES, my teacher thought it would be a great idea to have an essay due the Sunday night after break started. -.-

Anywho, I’m happy to be on break, and plan to read, read, read this week!

(Review)

  
An Uncertain Choice by Jody Hedlund — Thanks Zondervan and NetGalley!
Lying Out Loud by Kody Keplinger — Thanks Scholastic! (My first ever unsolicited physical ARC!! YAY!)
The Trouble with Destiny by Lauren Morrill — Thanks Delacorte Press and NetGalley!

(Gifted)

 
The DUFF by Kody Keplinger — Thanks Mom & Dad!
All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven — Thanks Mom & Dad!

My parents buy my a little something in reward for high report card grades at the end of each quarter in school, so these were the books I got/picked out. I also bought a copy of All the Bright Places for a friend whose birthday is coming up. Although I have yet to read the book, I know she’ll love it, and I trust all of your guys’ reviews! 😉

Book News

So these two things happened when I either found out about the book or saw the cover and read the synopsis for these books on Goodreads:

  1. The uncertain choice has a nice cover. It has pulled on my attention a couple of times and I look forward to your review. It is always nice to get a reward from your parents, I’ve heard nothing but good things about All the bright place. A madness so discreet (CAN’T WAIT) and Six of crows (AHH) have pretty cover.

    Happy reading!

  2. I’ve been wanting to read The DUFF ever since I heard it was being made into a movie- can’t wait to see what you think of it! You’re so lucky that you’re on vacation- mine isn’t until next week, and my motivation at school is sinking with every second. At least it’s coming soon!

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