Rewind & Review #27

Rewind & Review

The week after Thanksgiving break was absolutely insane. I read a grand total of one and a half books (two, if you count the e-novella). I had two papers due and there was a ton of other craziness going on. The highlight of the first week was probably scoring Taylor Swift tickets. She's coming to Lexington next fall, and I'm going with three of my favorite people, even if our seats aren't the absolute best.
This past week was finals, and boy was that a blast. (Not.) I'm pretty sure I'll be passing all my courses, though, and hopefully I'll be getting A's and B's!
And now, once again, as you can see in the haul video below, I'm finally home! I get to spend a month in my own house, my own room, my own bed. It's going to be delightful baking, and dancing around the house when my parents are at work and not worrying about being too loud for anyone, and spending time with so many books. (As of typing this post, there are 10 books in my reread stack, 10 in my library haul, and 6 in my bought/ARC stack. And I aim to finish all of them by January 9th, the day I leave to go back to school.)
