Rewind and Review #3

Rewind and review

This has been both a very eventful week and a quiet one.  Chicagoland was dubbed "Chilaska" and "Chiberia" because of the drastic cold.  My parents were both home from work on Monday, so it felt like the weekend.  I spent a good portion of the week doing homework since Friday was the first day back to co-op after over a month off.  Yesterday, we went to IKEA and finally got me another bookcase.  I've been needing one since July.  Now I have three total bookcases in my room, and I've taken over half the one in the guest room across the hall.
But onto the books, blog posts, and excitement of this week!

Books I Received


Love Me by Rachel Shukert (Thanks to NetGalley and Delacorte BFYR!)

  1. Woaaaaaah ARCs! Also, again, your library stack makes me happy. :)

    1. I know! I went to the back room, expecting to find maybe 1 or 2 and I found all of those!

      I'm glad my library haul makes you happy. :) I finished The Bitter Kingdom today, and I definitely loved the series.
