Me on This Week's Book Week (51)

This Week's Book Week is rather similar to Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga's Reviews only with far more rambling and a less witty title. ;)

It's Mother's Day tomorrow! *hugs for my mom* It's been a weird year so far for all of us so I hope she takes some time and does some relaxing.

The Canadian YA Lit Event is still happening! If you've missed any posts, here they are: Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, Day 4, Day 5, Day 6, Day 7, Day 8, Day 9, Day 10 & Day 11. Only a few more days to go before it ends for the year. And make sure to enter the giveaways here and here before time runs out! :) (And I've been checking the Rafflecopter entries so I know if there's some cheating afoot.) (Also, I know I said once that there would be 2 winners if the number of entries tipped over 100, but my finger has created some unexpected medical costs this year so there will only be the 1 winner. I hope those who've entered will understand.)

It's been rather nice this past week, meaning it's been sunny and warm. Rather unseasonably warm. It was weird, like we went from early May to mid-July in the span of a day. I hope it isn't a sign for how warm the summer will be.

Same old plague finger. My sister keeps saying it looks better, and it does, but I'm thinking my treatment might extend beyond the 6 weeks they initially planned. I'm also curious if it'll ever go further than antibiotics and bone scans, if the words 'biopsy' or 'surgery' will ever come up. We could find out around the 20th.

The blog will get back to its usual review schedule on Friday the 17th with a review of Coda by Emma Trevayne. :)
Invisibility by Andrea Cremer & David Levithan
Borrowed from the library:
Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz
Sweet Shadows by Tera Lynn Childs


  1. Aristotle and Dante is such an amazing book! One of the best I've read this year. Enjoy!

  2. I heard a lot of great things about Aristotle and Dante and Sweet Shadows. I totally agree with you about the weather. Only where I live, the weather seems bipolar, one week it's cold, the next week it's hot. I hope your finger gets better!

    Happy reading! :)
