Week In Review
April 1 – 7
Another week gone by and I’m still waiting for spring weather to arrive! Even though this was a four-day work week for me, it still managed to feel long, perhaps because I was really looking forward to the weekend. I know, I just had a long, four-day weekend, but I have a bunch of books out from the library that I’ve been looking forward to reading, and I just feel like there isn’t enough time during a weekday to do all the things I want to do!
Anyway, aside from reading, I enjoyed watching some baseball with my husband (go Blue Jays!) and went out Saturday night for dinner with some friends we haven’t seen in a while, so despite the weather, it was a fun weekend.
I’m wearing my Blue Jays gear and looking forward to this afternoon’s game, and getting really excited to go see two games in June in Toronto with my husband and some friends!
On the blog, I posted three reviews: Megan Shepard’s The Madman’s Daughter, which was also my YA book club’s first read; Execution: Escape from Furnace 5 by Alexander Gordon Smith (the final book in the Lockdown series); and Jessica Brody’s Unremembered.
I’m currently reading Shards and Ashes, which is a collection of dystopian YA stories, edited by Melissa Marr and Kelley Armstrong. I just finished reading Belles by Jen Calonita, and Just One Day by Gayle Forman, so I’ll be writing those reviews later on today.
I have a whole bunch of reviews scheduled – I feel so on top of things! – so this week I’ll be posting my reviews of Bunheads and Shadow and Bone. I’ll also be posting my first Waiting on Wednesday post, which is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine which highlights upcoming book releases.
So for the rest of the day, I plan to write some reviews, catch up on some TV shows, watch baseball, and enjoy some homemade pizza for dinner tonight!
