Me on This Week's Book Week (35)

This Week's Book Week is like Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga's Reviews but I suck at naming things. It's a terrible disease. ;)

1 week to ALA. Freaking out (for a different reason, see below where I talk about my new meds).

It snowed a little on Monday, but it was just enough, mixed with the cold, to make the roads slippery. Again, people cannot drive in snow in Vancouver. They freak out because it's not the same as rain.

I'm on antibiotics right now. Yay. (Not really.) There's an infection in my left middle finger (no pictures, I promise) so I have to take some antibiotics with some possibly disgusting side effects. I probably should've asked my doctor about still being able to go to Seattle but I'm seeing him on Wednesday again so I'll find out then. That would really suck, finding out 2 days beforehand that I can't go to ALA because I'm on antibiotics (my round of pills will last until next Saturday) or suffering from the side effects. I'm kicking myself for not asking when I was in his office. Of course, if I get the weird side effects, that might decide it for me. *angry sigh* Stupid finger. Couldn't you have waited until after ALA to go all weird and hot and swollen?? So, yeah. Minor health deal with me.

I've been watching The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, the modernization of Pride and Prejudice where Lizzie talks about her family and the people they know in a diary vlog format. It's very funny. So funny. Of course, it's made me want to read Pride and Prejudice as well. Good thing I have a Kobo with an e-book copy.
Paper Valentine by Brenna Yovanoff (many thanks to Penguin Canada for the finished copy)

Borrowed from the library:
Destined by Aprilynne Pike
Loss by Jackie Morse Kessler
(Also some other books like Watchmen and Y: The Last Man and some romance novels but you guys don't care about those.)
