Rewind & Review #25

Rewind & Review
Hosted by Shae Has Left the Room.

There are now less than three weeks until I get to go home for Thanksgiving, and I'm just so excited. I've missed my parents, and my dog, and my home, and my friends. I'm going to be able to sleep in my own bed and eat good, home-cooked food. I'll be able to visit my favorite bookstore and see family and hopefully Kate. But for now I'm making it through all my classes. I've reached that point where I'm just feeling pretty meh about all of them, but I know I need to make the effort to go each day. After all, my parents are paying a lot for me to be here and I need to keep my GPA up so I can keep my academic scholarship.

Book-wise, these last two weeks have been much nicer than last time, although I didn't get any books from the 26th through the 31st. I've also done a TON of rereading.

For Real by Alison Cherry (via NetGalley/Delacorte)
Inherit Midnight by Kate Kae Myers (via NetGalley/Bloomsbury)
