Sunday Review –5/1/2016


This year is going WAY TOO FAST.

Someone slow it down!

Why does it seem the years start speeding up the older we get? Time is a scary thing.

But, hold on, I’m catching myself here. This is not the time or the place to fall into an existential crisis.

This is a place to talk about books! And that’s exactly what I’m hear to talk about.

But first, I have an important update that may (pun not intended) affect my blogging schedule this week. I’m taking a short little road trip out to visit a friend, and I’m not quite sure what to expect or how much I’ll feel like blogging. I’m still going to try and post like usual, but I’ll just be playing it by ear.

If you want to keep up with me during this mini-vacation, be sure to check out my social media platforms listed on the bottom of this post. (I recommend following my Instagram and Snapchat if you’re looking to keep up with the trip progress.)

Nowwwww it’s on with the books!
(And there’s a lot of them. I went on quite the binge this last week.)

Wahoo. That does it for last week. See what I mean when I went on a binge? I read 7 graphic novels in less than 24 hours. Wowza. (My car was in the shop and I was off work, so I figured I could get away with it, since I was stuck at home anyway.)

Did you read anything good last week? Anything you’re dying to recommend? (Please do!)

Bear with me as this week will surely be a crazy one!

  1. Inkheart was my favourite when I was younger 😄
    And I can’t wait to find out your thoughts on The Ask and the Answer! It’s not my favourite from the trilogy but I looove the whole series as a whole.

    1. I can’t wait to read Inkheart. I somehow missed the boat of reading it when I was younger! I’m so sucked in to the Knife of Never Letting Go series. If I didn’t have other obligations, I would be finished with the second book already!
