~Reading Wise~

I finished Free To Fall by Lauren Miller.

I read Girls Like Us by Giles Gillian and 100 Sideways Miles by Andrew Smith.

I’m currently reading Adrenaline Crush. I hope to finish Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Mass and Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock by Matthew Quick. Hopefully after finishing those, I’ll be able to read The Distance Between Us and On The Fence by Kasie West,  Get Even by Gretchen McNeil, Rumble by Ellen Hopkins and Roomies by Sara Zarr and Tara Albebrando.


~Around The Blogosphere~

The blogosphere has been super busy the past nine days. Here are some of the great posts I saw going on.

 ~Weekly Poem~

Shattered Shards by Heather Burns

looking in the
distance
suddenly a star
appeared

Revealing a
face
so familiar
a face of
yesteryear

It burst into
a million pieces
scattering shards
through out the
universe

Impossible to
retrieve
until this day
one small piece
remains missing

Leaving me
wandering
forever searching

The Sunday PostHey guys. It’s time for The Sunday Post, a weekly meme created and hosted by Kimba @ The Caffeinated Book Reviewer. Every week bloggers are welcomed to link up and share their past and upcoming blogging weeks, you can do so here.

I’ll also be sharing my Stacking The Shelves for this week. Stacking The Shelves is a weekly meme created and hosted at Tynga’s Reviews. I went a bit crazy at the library, which is bad because I still have almost all those books from last week’s STS to read. Oh well. 🙂

~Reading Wise~

I began Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Mass. So far I really love it. Caelana reminds me of Katniss a little in her smart aleck, determined, goal oriented, awesome  personality.

In the middle of reading that, I began Free To Fall by Lauren Miller which I really love. The whole idea is really fascinating to me. I love books involving boarding school, dorms and classes. Plus there’s a secret society and a bit of mystery, so I’m in love.

I’m still in the middle of Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock by Matthew Quick and Anatomy of A Misfit by Andrea Portes.

I’m back! Finally. I took an unfortunate internet hiatus hiatus from October 14th to technically the 22nd, doing only a couple occasional posts at the library. I’m so glad to finally be back and regularly blogging and interacting again. Over the past couple weeks I have read, bought and borrowed a ton of books which I’m so excited to tell you all about in Stacking The Shelves.
I’ll be doing a sort of compilation of my posts since my last Sunday Post entry. 🙂

~Blogging Changes~
While browsing Jamie’s amazing, and I do mean absolutely amazing, blog, The Perpetual Page-Turner, I saw a couple features I was sort of inspired by her Most Wanted and Monthly Rewind features. Thus, I thought I would do my own versions of them.
There will be a monthly feature that will be posted on the first of every month where I discuss all the upcoming books I’m looking forward to the following month. I’m still working on a name for this feature though. Maybe it will just be something simple like Upcoming Releases.
My second monthly feature will just be called Monthly Recap and will be done on the last day of each month, I’ll discuss everything that’s been going on over the past month, new (or returning) music, books, movies, and shows I’ve discovered or love, include some latest obsessions, and blogging information (like stats or most viewed posts). So keep an eye out for those. 🙂

Review: Flawless (Pretty Little Liars #2) by Sara Shepard

~Blogging Changes~
I am changing Featured Fairytale Friday to a bi-monthly feature rather than weekly. I’ll be alternating Musical Monday with FFF. Therefore, during weeks I don’t have Musical Monday (another bi-weekly feature), I will do FFF. This will hopefully leave room to do Friday reviews as well, like I’ve been wanting to. There will be FFF this week though.

~Around The Blogosphere~
This is a new addition to The Sunday Post for me, I’ve seen it in other features and other Sunday Posts, so I thought I’d give it a try. 🙂 This will mostly list discussion topics as I love those.
Amber explains why she doesn’t do memes.
Cait talks about how she sucks at explaining how much she loves certain books.
Lauren asks how do you buy books and in what format.

~Reading Wise~
I finished The Chance You Won’t Return by Annie Cardi finally. 🙂
I started Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist by David Levitha and Rachel Cohn and Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli. I’m really close to finishing both, so hopefully I’ll finish reading those tomorrow. I then want to read Flawless by Sara Shepard and Kiss of Broken Glass by Madeleine Kuderick.
I intend on eventually getting back to Dangerous Girls by Abigail Haas and Just Listen by Sarah Dessen.

~Everything Else~
Let’s see, I discovered Are You Afraid of The Dark? on Youtube, an old 90s kids scary series, that I never caught during the initial run because a) I wasn’t born when it first premiered (in 90) and b) I was never really into scary shows as a kid. I’m still not… I really like this show though. 🙂
I turned 23 yesterday! It’s still as unbelievable as I said it was on my Twitter. For the past five or six years, I really haven’t felt that much older. There’s a pressure to be further ahead in life than I am (graduated, moved out, steady income, being an adult basically) for sure.
It was a low key event though with just dinner, cake, and a card with some money last night. 🙂 (Bookstore here I go! Just kidding…maybe).
I’m looking to buy a couple of these invisible book “shelves” this week.
I never heard anything back from Barnes and Noble which is just frustrating, so I’ll be applying to the bank tomorrow. Wish me luck.

STSStacking The Shelves is a weekly meme hosted at Tynga’s Reviews where bloggers can share what they have bought, borrowed, won or received book wise that week. 🙂 You can link up here.
I went to the library where I returned almost all my books from last week, even though I didn’t read two of them and checked out six more. 🙂 I also bought three at the library’s book store for only $5.50.
~Purchased~
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
Emma by Jane Austen
A Million Little Pieces by James Frey

~Borrowed~
Rumble by Ellen Hopkins
–This sounds so great. I love novels involving loss and questions and religion, plus it’s told in poetry.
Kiss of Broken Glass by Madeleine Kuderick
–This is another novel told in poetry. After reading Cut, I can’t wait to read another novel involving a psych ward like this one.
Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock by Matthew Quick
–I’ve heard about this one a little bit on the blogosphere but not a whole lot. I’m so interested in finding out more about Leonard Peacock and the four friends he wants to say goodbye to.
Flawless (Pretty Little Liars #2) by Sara Shepard
–I’m excited to finally continue this series after so many months.
Aristotle and Dante Discover The Secrets of The Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz 
–I’m excited for this because it mentions the universe, which I love, gives off the slighest The Fault In Our Stars vibe and it reminds me of Bare: A Pop Opera. 🙂
A Midsummer’s Nightmare by Kody Keplinger
–I love a good old fashioned, family drama Young Adult novel, The main character sounds like a party girl, which I also like to see.

~Weekly Poem~

Daffodils by William Woodsworth
I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o’er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.
Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the milky way,
They stretched in never-ending line
Along the margin of a bay:
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.
The waves beside them danced; but they
Out-did the sparkling waves in glee:
A poet could not but be gay,
In such a jocund company:
I gazed–and gazed–but little thought
What wealth the show to me had brought:
For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.

~Weekly Quote~
“But I guess you don’t see the planets when you’re staring at the sun. You just get blinded.”  (Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist)
“You’ll know her more by your questions than by her answers. Keep looking at her long enough. One day you might see someone you know.”  (Stargirl)

 I hope everyone has a great week. Share with me how your past week has been and what books you’ve obtained! 🙂

Review: Let’s Get Lost by Adi Alsaid (Thursday or Friday)

~Reading Wise~
I finished Cut by Patricia McCormick, I’m almost finished with The Chance You Won’t Return by Annie Cardi, and I’ve started Let’s Get Lost by Adi Alsaid.
I’m putting Dangerous Girls by Abigail Haas on hold. Just Listen by Sarah Dessen is still placed on hold for the time being.

~Everything Else~
Well my mom’s birthday was this past week, on the third. 🙂 It went pretty okay. My birthday’s on Saturday, the 11th! I’ll be 23. Like the past five years, I can’t believe it. Time’s flying by, but I never feel any older. I don’t really want much for my birthday, minus books, because, I always want books…But my parents never buy me books since I always have so many to read… It’s not my fault. I’d really like copies of Sylvia Plath’s “The Bell Jar”, “Ariel”, “The Unabridged Journals” and “The Collected Poems”…Like really like them…
Oh, bookshelves would be great too! Because I don’t have any, all my books are spread through out the house, the ones in my room are in a variety of stacks.
Sleeping Beauty and The Fault In Our Stars would be nice to receive.

STS
Stacking The Shelves is a weekly meme hosted at Tynga’s Reviews where bloggers can share what they have bought, borrowed, won or received book wise that week. 🙂 You can link up here.
This week wasn’t too eventful. I won Don’t Touch by Rachel M. Wilson from Pam at Strong In The Broken Places by participating a ton! Ah, now if only I had done that with my college classes, one of my grades would have been a lot better. 😉 Anyway, I’m so excited to read this!
Goodreads (Abridged) Summary: 
Step on a crack, break your mother’s back. Touch another person’s skin, and Dad’s gone for good.
Caddie can’t stop thinking that if she keeps from touching another person’s skin, her parents might get back together… which is why she wears full-length gloves to school and covers every inch of her skin.
It seems harmless at first, but Caddie’s obsession soon threatens her ambitions as an actress. She desperately wants to play Ophelia in her school’s production of Hamlet. But that would mean touching Peter, who’s auditioning for the title role—and kissing him. Part of Caddie would love nothing more than to kiss Peter—but the other part isn’t sure she’s brave enough to let herself fall.

I was also granted acces to an e-arc of The Walled City by Ryan Graudin via Netgalley (Thanks Little, Brown Books for Young Readers!)
Goodreads Summary:
There are three rules in the Walled City: Run fast. Trust no one. Always carry your knife. Right now, my life depends completely on the first. Run, run, run.
Jin, Mei Yee, and Dai all live in the Walled City, a lawless labyrinth run by crime lords and overrun by street gangs. Teens there run drugs or work in brothels—or, like Jin, hide under the radar. But when Dai offers Jin a chance to find her lost sister, Mei Yee, she begins a breathtaking race against the clock to escape the Walled City itself.
This reminds me of The Maze Runner, which I haven’t read, in the whole, running aspect and the escaping aspect. Other than that, it sounds pretty different. I love the gang aspect it has, that’s rare. It sounds really fascinating and I can’t wait to read it.

~Weekly Quote(s)~
“Well, everyone needs at least one long road trip in their lives,” (Let’s Get Lost by Adi Alsaid)

~Weekly Poem~
Mad Girl’s Love Song by Sylvia Plath
“I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead;
I lift my lids and all is born again.
(I think I made you up inside my head.)
The stars go waltzing out in blue and red,
And arbitrary blackness gallops in:
I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead.
I dreamed that you bewitched me into bed
And sung me moon-struck, kissed me quite insane.
(I think I made you up inside my head.)
God topples from the sky, hell’s fires fade:
Exit seraphim and Satan’s men:
I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead.
I fancied you’d return the way you said,
But I grow old and I forget your name.
(I think I made you up inside my head.)
I should have loved a thunderbird instead;
At least when spring comes they roar back again.
I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead.
(I think I made you up inside my head.)”

I hope everyone has a great week. 🙂

If you read my Stacking The Shelves post for this week, you would know that I got the last of my books this week! Yay! Feel free to check that out, I’m so excited all of them.
I barely got a review out this week. I originally planned to review The Truth About Alice by Jennifer Mathieu on Tuesday, then review We Were Liars by E. Lockhart on Thursday, but I just didn’t have the energy and the words weren’t coming. 😦
I finally, finally, made my first review for the Mental Health and Suicide Awareness Theme Read going on by Rachel at RachelIsReading this month. It’s kind of sad since I’d been wanting to write a review every Saturday for it but….I don’t know what happened.
I think I’ll begin just reviewing the books for the Theme Read whenever I finish them.

Review: Falling Into Place by Amy Zhang (ARC)
I went way overboard on last week’s Top Ten Tuesday. Haha… I kind of had three lists…
I ended up completely missing Wondrous Covers Wednesday and Waiting On Wednesday due to figuring I’d do those that night after Life Group, but then I kind of didn’t get home from Life Group until….after midnight.
I have no excuse for not doing Featured Fairytale Friday other than I didn’t feel like reading a fairytale and commenting on it. Which is ridiculous.
Last week’s Amber’s Ramble was on breaking blogging schedules. It was originally going to be on something else, but with my Sunday post being late, my Top Ten Tuesday post being late and then entirely skipping Wednesday’s posts, I felt the need to write about breaking schedules.

  • I’m still in the middle of The Chance You Won’t Return by Annie Cardi, but I’ll be reading that today.

~Weekly Quote(s)~
If you want to live where people are not afraid of mice, you must give up living in palaces. (We Were Liars)

~Weekly Poem~
Alone by Edgar Allan Poe
From childhood’s hour I have not been
As others were; I have not seen
As others saw; I could not bring
 My passions from a common spring.
From the same source I have not taken
My sorrow; I could not awaken
My heart to joy at the same tone;
And all I loved, I loved alone.
Then- in my childhood, in the dawn
Of a most stormy life- was drawn
From every depth of good and ill
The mystery which binds me still:
From the torrent, or the fountain,
From the red cliff of the mountain,
From the sun that round me rolled
In its autumn tint of gold,
From the lightning in the sky
As it passed me flying by,
From the thunder and the storm,
And the cloud that took the form
(When the rest of Heaven was blue)
Of a demon in my view.

Have a great week. 🙂

I’m in the middle of Falling Into Place by Amy Zhang, The Chance You Won’t Return by Annie Cardi and We Were Liars by E. Lockhart. i’m taking forever to read Falling Into Place, I know, I know. I need to just read it and get it done. I keep wanting to read other books.

 ~Everything Else~
Oh gosh, this week. Let’s see… I received four packages in the mail this week full of books. I went to the Friends of The Library book sale Friday night and Saturday afternoon. I had way too much fun there. 🙂 You can find out what I purchased at my Stacking The Shelves post. Yes, it actually deserved it’s own post this week. I bought that many books.
Barnes and Noble never did call me back. 😦 But I called them again today and the manager said the assistant managers were choosing the final couple of people to interview and he’d have them look over my application so…there’s still hope. And if I don’t get a call back, I will be calling again Monday. I want this job. I need this job.
I went to the library and paid off my…dues. Then I checked out five books! You can check those out, again, at my Stacking The Shelves (#4) post from last week.
Wednesday night, I went to my church Life Group then last night we all hung out at the pastor and his wife’s house for a bonfire and such. 🙂

~Weekly Quote(s)~
I really can’t handle talking about this for too long because it hurts too much, but I want to say that there is one thing I’ve learned about people, they don’t get that mean and nasty overnight. It’s not human nature. If you give people enough time, eventually they’ll do the most heartbreaking stuff in the world.
The Truth About Alice by Jennifer Mathieu
It seems that Julia may have arrived just in time to see all of her fears come true.
Falling Into Place by Amy Zhang
Her expression softened so that for a second it seemed like the most natural thing in the world for her to say.
The Chance You Won’t Return by Annie Cardi
We do not discuss our problems in restaurants. We do not believe in displays of distress. Our upper lips are stiff, and it is possible people are curious about us because we do not show them our hearts.
We Were Liars by E. Lockhart

~Weekly Poem~
The Lady of Shalott
Part I.

On either side the river lie
Long fields of barley and of rye,
That clothe the wold and meet the sky;
And thro’ the field the road runs by
To many-tower’d Camelot;
And up and down the people go,
Gazing where the lilies blow
Round an island there below,
The island of Shalott.

This is only part of a poem but I wanted to share anyway.

That’s it for this week, I hope everyone’s week is well. 🙂
