Me on This Week's Book Week (177)

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. ;)

Hi all! It's getting cooler now, fall is definitely settling in. But its looking like the winder will be mild and rainy, which means everyone will be soggy and sad when the spring comes around.

It's my sister's birthday soon, followed up by my dad's, and they're hard people to buy presents for. We've all reached the point where we ask the person what they want and go from there. Why bother being secretive about it? I hate it when I end up buying someone a present that they find useless, that they already sort of have, or that it turns out they didn't want. I might as well just hand out cash, let them buy what they want. I usually treat my sister to lunch and a movie for her birthday plus an extra present. For years we saw Harry Potter, then the Hunger Games movies. What will we see next year?

Reviews going up next week will feature How to Outfox Your Friends When You Don't Have a Clue by Jess Keating (Tuesday) and The Conjurer's Riddle by Andrea Cremer (Friday). :)

  1. Hi Lindsey. Why not take the birthday person to lunch? Or go with them to get their nails done (maybe not your Dad LOL). I am a new follower via Bloglovin. My blog is

  2. I've been seeing Under the Dusty Moon on a few blogs this week. I always like to give gift cards when I can't think of something. But yeah, we pretty much ask for things now, because it isn't a great feeling when they get something and don't like or use it. Have a great week!

  3. I have some tricky people in my family to buy gifts for. Like you, I've gotten to the point of working of a wishlist from them. Safer. :) Happy Reading!
