How is it the end of January already?! I’ve barely started to put in motion my new year’s resolutions yet. Eek! (January was just a test month, right?)
I spent the weekend up north visiting an Aunt and Uncle I haven’t seen in awhile (and binging on X Files after they went to bed 😛 ). It was a lovely weekend, but I’m so happy to be home. Nothing beats sleeping in your own bed.
I had another slow week in books, so that’s not something I’m very happy about. I also haven’t seen The 5th Wave yet. Why is there always so much to do and so little time to do it in? (Have any of you seen The 5th Wave? Thoughts? I’ve been hearing good things!)
Anyway, here’s what happened last week in books (even if it wasn’t much).
