Rewind & Review #14


The last two weeks have been CRAZY.  I studied a lot for my final geometry test, and I think I still probably failed (I had to skip an entire page because I just couldn't remember how to solve the problems).  I had my last day of co-op on Friday, attended my last spring banquet/dance as a student, and I went to a big author tour (Dark Days!) yesterday.  Not to mention, I'm learning how to drive, and I went out on the roads (in a neighborhood) for the first time on the 7th.  I managed not to hit anyone or anything, so A+ for me.  Ready to see my bookish happenings?

  1. How was The One? I'm so excited to read it, though it wasn't in my lovely haul of books that I got yesterday.
    Also, good job not hitting anyone while driving. xD I thought you'd already learned to drive, though? (Or maybe I was just assuming that . . .)

    1. Everyone thinks that because of my age, but nope, I haven't. I waited until I didn't have to take a state-run driver's ed course, and so it's just my mom teaching me.

      It was good! I'm rereading it now, but I liked most of how it ended.
