November Wrap-Up And Looking Forward To...


I use Grammarly's plagiarism checker because you never know if you're quoting someone from an internet meme!

So, this November I did not really get to read too much. Most of the month was spent either being sick, taking care of a sick kiddo, or doing classwork! One of those classes is an English class, and the professor is huge on plagiarism so I'm constantly wondering if I'm plagiarizing. Did you know you can self plagiarize? Yeah, neither did I.

I did get to start reading Ender's Game and The Eternity Cure, though! I'm super excited to see where The Eternity Cure is headed, so far it is really good. I really love the writing style of Julie Kagawa, and I think I am going to be in love with this series.

Ender's Game on the other hand, I am getting a little bit bored with it. I read it back in the fifth grade, which was forever ago, and thought I would enjoy it again before the movie came out. Obviously, I didn't finish it before the movie! I am about half way with it, and for some reason am loosing interest. Maybe it will pick up again? I hope so!

My reading goals for this month (with reviews) are:

Waiting On Wednesday




Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine where we all share what books we're eagerly waiting for!



"As Omega Point prepares to launch an all-out assault on The Reestablishment soldiers stationed in Sector 45, Adam's focus couldn't be further from the upcoming battle. He's reeling from his breakup with Juliette, scared for his best friend's life, and as concerned as ever for his brother James's safety. And just as Adam begins to wonder if this life is really for him, the alarms sound. It's time for war. 

 On the battlefield, it seems like the odds are in their favor—but taking down Warner, Adam's newly discovered half brother, won't be that easy. The Reestablishment can't tolerate a rebellion, and they'll do anything to crush the resistance . . . including killing everyone Adam has ever cared about." -from Goodreads.com



Fracture Me (Shatter Me, #2.5)


I'm so excited for this novella! It sets up the plot for the final book in the series, Ignite Me. I can't wait!

What book are you looking forward to this week?

Moving and Things

I miss my blog! I miss writing reviews and being in the world of book blogging. I am going to try to be here from time to time, we'll see how it goes.

We are going to be moving in a few weeks, and then I have three classes starting up this summer. So I'm not sure how well it will go. I know I've lost a lot of my readers because of my busy schedule causing a lot of issues with posting here. To those of you that have stuck around, thank you!







"Thank you God for answering my prayer; thank you St. Jude for interceding on my behalf. I will encourage devotion to you always."

School

I hate to come back here and say this, but I really think I am going to have a hard time keeping up with this blog. I have a few reviews that need to be posted, but other than those I'm not sure how much I'll be here. Probably not much.

I just started up a Pharmacology class, and it is going to be killer. I probably won't even get through 1 book a week, it will probably be like every 2 weeks.

Stacking the Shelves {4}

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews where everyone gets to share what books they've acquired over the last week!

Well it's been a bit since I've done one of these! Classes have kept me very busy, and will continue to do so starting again on Monday. I'm going to try my hardest to keep up with reviews, I may only be able to handle one a week until this class ends in 7 weeks.

Here's what I got!

Teaser Tuesday: A Howl For A Highlander



Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

•Grab your current read
•Open to a random page
•Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!




"Did he even know how to swim? Well, sure. He was a wolf." 
- pg. 49 of A Howl for A Highlander
