Weekly Recap (#3) (Nov. 29-Dec. )

 

~Life~

Hey everyone! It’s been a crazy week. Thanksgiving was all right with my family.I hope everyone else’s was too.  I got picked up by my friend  last night and didn’t go to sleep until around 4 in the morning. There was lots of driving around places. Anyway, I am so happy to be blogging right now, I’ve been waiting to all day. 🙂 If you don’t know or can’t tell what this is, it’s my weekly recap where I recap my blogging and life week as well as my upcoming week. I brought five or six books with me, but I’m thinking I should have brought more because I have a lot that will be due in two weeks and I’m not quite sure how long I’ll be here. Haha… Hopefully I’ll get all my posts done this week (ish) on time. If not, well you know how life is. 🙂

I’ve made some progress finally! I finished Paper Airplanes, Roomies and Adrenaline Crush. I’m now reading Althea & Oliver. I brought the following books with me to read:
Althea and Oliver by Cristina Moracho (Obviously :))
Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson
Open Road Summer by Emery Lord
Girl Defective by Simmone Howell
Tease by Amanda Maciel
The Young Elites (#1) by Marie Lu
I’m not sure how this reading week will go considering I’m going to be watching all eight Harry Potter movies and the first two seasons of Veronica Mars with my friend along with general hanging out and such. 🙂 Hopefully I’ll finish all my books by the time I go home though so I can return them to the library and not have (more) ridiculous fees. Haha…I’m bad at obtaining library fees.

Oh my gosh, it’s been a ridiculous week book wise too. Harper Collins uploaded a TON of books on Edelweiss and there were so many amazing books, I couldn’t resist. There were also a couple others I was interested in that I’d requested, I didn’t get approved for all of them, but I did for some. 🙂
