Here is this week’s Sunday Post and Stacking The Shelves. The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer. This is where book bloggers can share their past week and what’s coming up this week blog-wise or not. 🙂
Stacking The Shelves is a weekly meme hosted at Tynga’s Reviews. This is where you share books you’ve bought, borrowed, won, or been given.
This week has been pretty tame. I applied for Barnes and Noble on Tuesday after not recognizing employees and figured out they were hiring. 🙂 I’m going to call there tomorrow morning and find out if my application has been reviewed. The only thing I’m slightly worried about is the lack of work experience and lack of professional references, but I figured the skills I put down were pretty good. At the least, I hope to get an interview despite both of those things.

I didn’t manage to get online to do Amber’s Rambles on Thursday unfortunately, so sorry about that. 😦 I had a post planned, but never actually got it typed out. This week though, for sure. I have just the right topic. 🙂

Review: ARC of Falling Into Place by Amy Zhang
I hope to read a lot more this week than I did last week. I started off well enough, I sort of faltered through there though due to not being very interested in the book. This week though I plan on finishing (re-reading) Perks of Being A Wallflower. I’m going to finish An Abundance of Katherines tonight as it finally caught my interest with less than 70 pages to go, I believe. I also really want to read Falling Into Place so I’ll be doing that tomorrow.
~Stacking The Shelves~
Okay, so I completely forgot I DID add something to my “shelf” this week. I just remembered as I was checking my email. So this post is now being updated.
I added one book to my e-shelf. 🙂 Remember by Eileen Cook. This book reminds me of Eternal Sunshine of Spotless Mind, a movie I loved. Edelweiss writes
A thrilling tale about what a girl will do to get back a memory she lost…or remove what she wants to forget.
Harper is used to her family being hounded by protestors. Her father runs the company that trademarked the “Memtex” procedure to wipe away sad memories, and plenty of people think it shouldn’t be legal. Then a new demonstrator crosses her path, Neil, who’s as persistent as he is hot. Not that Harper’s noticing, since she already has a boyfriend.When Harper suffers a loss, she’s shocked her father won’t allow her to get the treatment, so she finds a way to get it without his approval. Soon afterward, she’s plagued with strange symptoms, including hallucinations of a woman who is somehow both a stranger, yet incredibly familiar. Harper begins to wonder if she is delusional, or if these are somehow memories.Together with Neil, who insists he has his own reasons for needing answers about the real dangers of Memtex, Harper begins her search for the truth. What she finds could uproot all she’s ever believed about her life…
I am so excited to check this ARC out. It sounds fascinating if not a little tiny bit predictable but that’s not always bad, right? 🙂
I also made quite a few book haul purchases this week so be on the look out for those over the next month.
Let’s see, after calling Barnes and Noble and finding something out there, I’m going to apply by a nearby bank. Then Tuesday I plan on going to the library to go pay off…debt for an overdue book.
Think about it: boys, basically, want to kiss girls. Guys want to make out. Always. Hassan aside, there’s rarely a time when a boy is thinking, “Eh, I think I’d rather not kiss a girl today.” Maybe if a guy is actually, literally on fire, he won’t be thinking about hooking up. But that’s about it. Whereas girls are very fickle about the business of kissing. Sometimes they want to make out; sometimes they don’t. They’re an impenetrable fortress of unknowability, really.
Ergo: girls should always make the first move, because (a) they are, on the whole, less likely to be rejected than guys, and (b) that way, girls will never get kissed unless they want to be kissed.
-An Abundance of Katherines
If You Forget Me by Pablo Neruda
I want you to know
You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
near the fire
the impalpable ash
or the wrinkled body of the log,
everything carries me to you,
as if everything that exists,
aromas, light, metals,
were little boats
toward those isles of yours that wait for me.
if little by little you stop loving me
I shall stop loving you little by little.
you forget me
do not look for me,
for I shall already have forgotten you.
If you think it long and mad,
the wind of banners
that passes through my life,
and you decide
to leave me at the shore
of the heart where I have roots,
that on that day,
at that hour,
I shall lift my arms
and my roots will set off
to seek another land.
if each day,
you feel that you are destined for me
with implacable sweetness,
if each day a flower
climbs up to your lips to seek me,
ah my love, ah my own,
in me all that fire is repeated,
in me nothing is extinguished or forgotten,
my love feeds on your love, beloved,
and as long as you live it will be in your arms
without leaving mine.
I hope everyone has a great week and share how your week’s gone with me. 😉
