The new school semester is getting closer and closer, and I am no where near ready! Of course I haven't been able to get as ahead on posts as I wanted to be and I haven't read as much as I wanted to, but that's usually how it goes. I'm going to keep trying to get ahead with my posts, and denying that school starts in less than two weeks.
What I Read:
I reread Midwinterblood by Marcus Sedgwick in two sittings, and I loved it just as much (if not more) as the first read. I also started The Blood of Olympus but I haven't gotten very far, as I haven't been reading as much this past week. Hopefully I will finish it this week.
What I Bought:
Guys, I am so excited about the deal I got this week. I got The Luminaries by Elanor Canton at my local thrift store for... 25 cents! And it's hard cover! I also picked up a cute little copy of The Secret Garden which I have never read.
I also picked up some really great finds at my local bookstore in the used section that I was really happy to find. Both of these have been on my TBR for quite awhile. Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng is very expensive to buy new, so I was very excited to find it used and in perfect shape. Memoirs of a Beatnik by Diane DiPrima is difficult to find and is often expensive too. If you remember my Literary Look post on the Beatnik Movement, you'll know this literary movement really interests me, and I'm really eager to read about the movement from a female perspective.
