The new books on my shelves and my week in a nutshell.
Life and Blog
Life: We spent over two hours at the phone store today, which was something I put off for well over a week even though my phone had stopped working altogether. I very much hope that this new phone lasts for many years because there is nothing worse than spending your day off in a phone store.
The last couple of weeks have been brutal. My work computer crashed taking file after file with it (both computer AND phone in February — magic touch?). Thank god I had quite a few of my files as Google Docs, but there were plenty that I had saved as Word documents that are gone forever. Just this week I had to rewrite a new test and a new essay rubric. While I’ve been officially counting down the days to spring break quietly for the last few weeks, I feel like I can start the out-loud countdown. 2 weeks! The stretch between winter and spring breaks is by far the longest one of the year. The weather is gross and the “newness” of being back at school is a distant memory.
Blog and reading: Nothing on the blog this year, and my reading could be described as sporadic as best. I read every night before bed, but when nothing is holding my attention, I tend to start a new book every night before bed and rarely go back to continue the one I started the night before. The past year has just been a giant book slump for me. I’ve finished books here and there, but they feel few and far between.
What I’m watching: Reruns and hockey. I know I should start something new, but I just cannot do it. Taking suggestions for spring break, though!
New books: I have a few pretties to share this week, so without further ado, I hope you’re all having fabulous, healthy weekends!
I hadn’t known anything about Jenny Lawson AKA the Bloggess when I first checked out the audiobook Let’s Pretend This Never Happened several years ago for a small road trip, but I immediately loved her. I’m excited for this one.
A girl who has perfected two personas for when she is with her mother in Michigan and her father in Florida has to face up to who she really is when her sister goes with her to Florida.
A gay teen finds himself the unwanted center of attention when his plans for a promposal go viral in a homophobic blast. This sounds like a heartwarmer when his classmates stand up for him.
A teen tries to clear his roommate’s name when he gets blamed for one of their teacher’s murders at a prep school.
Well that’s it for me this week. Feel free to leave a link to whatever weekend post you do (Stacking the Shelves, The Sunday Post, etc). I love to see what books people have recently snagged and especially enjoy hearing about my fellow bloggers’ weeks. I hope you are all having a fabulous weekend!
