February 25 – March 3, 2013
Another week gone by, and now it’s March! I seriously can’t wait for some warmer, sunnier weather. Ottawa was hit with some major snow this week, and I’m so over winter! My usual 20 minute walk to work became much longer when the sidewalks were unplowed and full of snow, slush, and ice.
I had a nice quiet Friday at home with Kevin, and then we went over to a friend’s for dinner last night (lasagna and Lego Rock Band!). I’m looking forward to spending the rest of my Sunday on the couch with some books and maybe a Blue Jays pre-season game on t.v.
This past week I reviewed three books: Crossed by Ally Condie; Paper Valentine by Brenna Yovanoff; and Seraphina (finally!) by Rachel Hartman. I also finished reading Sarah Dessen’s The Moon and More, so look for that review this week.
I’m currently reading two books: Cross My Heart, Hope to Die (The Lying Game #5) by Sara Shepard, and Frost by Marianna Baer. I also went on a Chapter’s spree and purchased Pivot Point by Kasie West, The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin, and The Ruining by Anna Collomore. I can’t wait to read those!
One thing I’m majorly excited about is the YA Book Club I joined! It’s taking place at the Chapters Pinecrest, and it’s organized by Ciara of Lost at Midnight Reviews. You can read her post here. If you live in Ottawa and want to join, contact her and go sign up! Our inaugural book will be The Madman’s Daughter, by Megan Shepard. I purchased the book yesterday when I went to sign up for book club, and I can’t wait to read it! I’ve been looking forward to this book for a while, and it’s so cool that the book club pick is a book I was already planning on reading!
I hope everyone’s enjoying the end of their weekend!
