School continues to dominate my life. This upcoming week is midterms week so I have exams and papers up the wahzoo, but hopefully things will slow down a little bit after that.
I have found a project that has reignited my excitement for reading and blogging: The Classics Club's Women's Literature Event. My survey answers are linked down below in the "What I Posted" section if you are interested to hear more about my plans for the event. I will be making a list of classics I own by woman very soon on the blog, so stay tuned for that. I hope you will join in this event, and if you do, please let me know so I can follow your progress!
What I Read:
This week I read (and loved) In the Shadow of Blackbirds by Cat Winters. I love Winters' novels, and this was her debut. I might have even liked this one better than The Cure for Dreaming (shocking, I know.) and I am hoping to start The Raven Boys right after typing up this post! I have been meaning to start this one forever, and I have really high hopes for it!
What I Bought:
The Bookoutlet order that I made a week or two ago came in. Bookoutlet is both a blessing and a curse. I got some really great deals on these books, but I really didn't need more unread books. But anyways, here's what I bought.
Fig by Sarah Elizabeth Schantz and In a World Just Right by Jen Brooks
Bitter Greens by Kate Forsyth and Among Others by Jo Walton
Dangerous Girls by Abigail Haas and Jane Austen Cover to Cover by Margaret C. Sullivan
Miss Emily by Nuala O' Connor
What I Posted:
Monday- I reviewed One by Sarah Crossan, a really interesting free verse novel about conjoined twins.
Tuesday- I talked about Author Team-Ups I dream about
Wednesday- I posted my Survey Answers for the Classics Club Women's Literature Event
Thursday- I posted a Recently Watched on the 2009 BBC Tess of the D'urbervilles mini-series
Last Week's Wrap-Up (It was a rough week, but I bought some books to make myself feel better)
I will be reviewing Sense and Sensibility on Monday, but the rest of the week beyond that is a mystery. Hopefully I will have some time/motivation to write some posts this weekend or early this week, but I have a lot of paper writing to do.
