Hello everyone! It’s been a slow week for books for me. I didn’t even take any trips to the Bookstore! (Shopping online doesn’t count, right?) I’ve been trying to follow my strict book buying ban that I put in place this week, but, just yesterday – yes I made it all the way to yesterday – I failed. So, here goes. Here’s what happened in books this last week.

So, like I said, this was a very slow week for me. I didn’t even finish reading much of anything. It was kind of a weird week all around and work tuckered me out. Plus, Friday night was a pretty crazy. I turned the volume on the TV all the way up to 18 and fell asleep on the couch at 11:30. I know, what can I say? I live life on the wild side.
Anyway, back to business. Probably the best thing that happened book related this week was the volume of The Walking Dead I read. It was packed with action, twists, and turns. It’s official. I’m way too obsessed with this fandom and have let it devour my soul completely. I noticed that there’s a comedy on Netflix called The Walking Deceased. I just saw it yesterday, but haven’t watched it yet. I am definitely going to, maybe this week. I’m not going to get my hopes up, since it will probably disappoint (nothing will ever live up to Shaun of the Dead anyway). But, it should be fun either way.
I’m also pretty stoked that I finally ordered Crown of Midnight. I held off because Barnes and Noble was out of stock of the hardback, and I have the hardback of Throne of Glass. It didn’t seem right to order the second one in paperback. But, I checked yesterday, and it was in! And only $12.10. What a steal. So, at least I have some book mail to look forward this week…hopefully.
Well, there you have it. My boring week in books. How was your week? Anything exciting to report?
