~In The Blogosphere~
Wow guys, you have been discussing like CRAZY. This is only half of what I’ve been saving over the past week. I’m sad to say I’ve barely commented on any of them. 😦 But I have them all saved in my BL “2015 May” collection. 🙂 And I’ll comment on them….sometime. 😦

~Reading Progress~
I’m almost halfway through Anything Could Happen by Will Walton and I’m loving it! I’m hoping to finish it today or tomorrow before Bout of Books.

~My Life~
So I went to a job interview Thursday and I thought I did okay. The manager said he had a few more interview to do and he’d get back with me. So I called him the next day, to give him my number (I didn’t know it beforehand). He told me he still had interviews and he’d call me the next day (yesterday). I waited and no call….
I’m guessing someone was hired, haha, and I didn’t get call back. Anyway, I am going to call him tomorrow just to check up on it, since I know he was wanting someone to be hired by tomorrow to start training. The job would be a night auditor at this hotel Sunday and Monday nights, which is totally good for me, if I got it, because as you all know, I’m up. All night. Every night. Ha.

I WON IT TWICE! It’s weird, around 8:40, I was notified I had won the mixed cd from the ladies at The Bevy Bibliotheque!, THEN, I was emailed back and told that the winner of the ARC had already won it somewhere else and they could pick a new winner! I was the new winner!  That’s what happens when you tweet a ton, I don’t regret it. 
THEN four hours later, I received TTSAO and the mixed CD, but I have NO idea who from! It’s from the publisher, as I suspect the rest of the giveaways were done the same way. I only gave my address in one giveaway, so odds are that’s who I won from and they just didn’t email me to tell me so. 🙂 So I’ve tweeted them to find out! Haha, if I’m told they didn’t send it to me, then I have no idea who I won from. It’s weird though, all the giveaways I entered were a “Win an arc or a cd” and I checked all of them, only a couple didn’t announce the winners so…I don’t know. But anyway, that was the highlight of my week! 🙂 I’m so excited to read it.
The interview was my other highlight. 🙂

~Stacking The Shelves~
Stacking The Shelves is a meme created and hosted at Tynga’s Reviews. It gives bloggers a chance toe talk about the books they’ve acquired over the past week. I finally got some books approved that I’d been waiting for. 🙂

A Madness So Discreet by Mindy McGinnis
Anything Could Happen by Will Walton
Thank you HarperCollins Children and Scholastic!<3

~Bout of Books 13~
I participated in Bout of Books at the beginning of the year, if you may remember. I didn’t reach my goal, but it was still fun to do. 🙂 This week I want to seriously finish at least five out of six ARCs that I’m currently reading. If I get that done, I want to start a new ARC, either Tonight The Streets Are Ours or Devoted. I’ll be adding this reading challenge to my Reading/Blogging Challenges page. I’ll update my progress there at the end of each day.
So my goals by name:
Anything Could Happen by Will Walton (Currently at 48%)
Challenger Deep by Neal Shusterman (Currently at 41%)
City Love by Susane Colasanti (Currently at 31%)
Fans of The Impossible Life by Kate Scelsa (Currently at 10%)
The Cemetery Boys by Heather Brewer (Currently at 5%)
Tiny Pretty Things by Sona Charaipotra and Dhonielle Clayton (Currently at 3%)
So yes, very steep goals, but I figured I could at least finish the first three. 🙂
That’s it for me this week, let me know how your week’s been, if you’re partaking in Bout of Books and what books you’ve received this week! 😀

    Great Bout of Books goals. I wish I was better at reading more than one book at a time, but I get confused. Best of luck with your goals.

    YAYAY FOR THE GIVEAWAY and winning it twice? Hahahh wow then YOU ARE VERY LUCKY. And boo for the job. They weren’t good enough for you ANYWAY.


  • Lola @ Hit or Miss Books

    Well that’s peculiar. Here, we don’t call managers to ask if we got the job or not. 😛 It’s just like, we go to the interview and he calls us only if we’re hired. Meh. I gave some curriculum vitaes last week but no call. My mom is pressuring me into getting a summer job but, hey, it’s not my fault they don’t need new people to hire ://


    • Amber (YA Indulgences)

      Ha, well I wasn’t calling to see if ‘I’ had the job, I was just calling to find out if the position was filled because I was told I would be getting and a call and I figured it would be regardless of whether or not I got it. I just wanted to know so I stopped thinking about it.

      That’s true, can’t control who/when people hire, especially in the summer. Good luck though! Hopefully something comes up for you.

    Thanks for mentioning my fairytale fashions post! Following up on interviews is so important, but apparently most people don’t. Hope you end up with the job! They may have just not made the decision right away.
