You might have noticed that this is about the third week in a row that I’e included a Monday gif. There are just so many awesome ones out there you’re going to have to deal with it. And although you don’t need another reminder that tomorrow (or the day after, depending on where you live!) is Monday . . .
What’s happened this week?
This week has been fairly uneventful. More study for the HSC, more reading, writing, and procrastinating — oh, and, my parents entrusted me with cooking dinner. (By “cooking dinner” I mean stirring a pot occasionally and making a batch of brown rice.) But I didn’t burn anything, so thumbs up for me! (The rice turned out gross. I used the wrong one.)
No Stacking the Shelves this week, though I’ll be greedily eyeing your own piles of books. At the moment I just have too many books to get through (I am literally reading three books at the same time right now) so I restrained myself. I was tempted to buy The Iron Trial by Cassandra Clare & Holly Black, but the smart, rational part of my brain won out.
It usually doesn’t.
BUT I DID RECEIVE HEIR OF FIRE. (I’m not counting this as a Stacking the Shelves because one book seems pretty lame.)
But still! Look at it, in all its badass gloriousness!
THANK YOU BLOOMSBURY AUSTRALIA!!
I’m also planning on doing some more photography posts. (You can read the FIRST POST HERE.) Let me know if this is something you want to see more of! As it’s spring here in Australia, the flowers are blooming, which means that snap-happy Kara will now proceed to walk around with a camera in hand for the next few months, reading to take pictures.
