Books I Read This Week




Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
-Oh my gosh...So incredible!!!!


Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein



Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
-Finally reading this one. It's great so far.


Books Received This Week


Library Stash

-I really shouldn't have gotten anything at the library with all my BEA books at home, but I couldn't help myself.


Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky



The Pioneer Woman: Black Heels to Tractor Wheels by Ree Drummond


Off Balance: A Memoir by Dominique Moceanu, Paul Williams, Teri Williams
-A must read for any gymnastics fan. Sure makes the Karolyis look bad.


Books For Review:



The Kingmakers (Vampire Empire #3) by Clay Griffith and Susan Griffith
-Thanks to Prometheus Books! Did a happy dance when this one arrived.

  Songs Bought




Eyes Wide Open by Gotye



Some Nights by Fun.
-Same group that sings "We Are Young." I like this song much better. That's putting it mildly. I am wildly in love with this song!!! The video is great too.



Carry On by Fun. 
-The video is acoustic. I actually like the acoustic version a little better than the album version.

  10. Nice! I can't make up my mind about The Raven Boys. Ever since I have gotten wayyyyy too many books to read, I've been pickier about other books to read. There are some I have to read--eventually--so I can't decide where this one will fall in that category.

    Happy Reading!

  25. I really liked Black Heels to Tractor Wheels. Although I read most of it back when she initially posted it on her blog, and the book is pretty much the same thing. But if you haven't read any of it before, I think you'll really love it.

  31. I'm glad you liked the Raven Boys. I'm struggling to get through it at the moment...but maybe the second half will peek my interest a bit more. But ah, it's a pretty pretty cover.
