So it’s officially the end of Term Three and it’s school holidays . . . apart from those — like me — who are taking their HSC. Sigh. But for those people who are blissfully on school holidays, enjoy! (I’m not complaining; I’ll be free from school soon.) So what has happened this week?
— I got my final school report! YAY. NO MORE REPORTS. NO MORE REPORTS EVER. HUZZAH!
— I finished editing/rewriting the first chapter of The Empire of Stars. (8913 words — IT’S EVEN LONGER THAN THE FIRST DRAFT. WHYYYY, LONG NOVEL, WHYYYYY?)
— I finally read Dangerous Girls by Abigail Haas — and daaaaaamnnn, it was good. Amazing, in fact; there will be a review coming Monday.
— I’ve had a freakishly good reading week. I’ve given two books five stars. FIVE STARS. Yes, Kara actually gives things five stars!! (Dangerous Girls & Snow Like Ashes.)
— If I’m absent from your blog, it’s not because I don’t love it, promise, it’s because I’m stuck in the Miserable Cave of Studying.
— I borrowed more books from the library. MORE BOOKS.
And hence, here’s my Stacking the Shelves post for this week.
This is the meme where you can highlight books you’ve bought/borrowed/gifted/received for review. You can read more on the meme and how to get involved here!
From Top to Bottom
She’s Not Invisible by Marcus Sedgwick
Not sure about this one! But it looks cool.
Countdown by Michelle Rowen
I’ve enjoyed the authors writing before, so I thought I would try this one! Though it sounds very Hunger Games-ish
If I should Die by Amy Plum
Eh. The only reason I’m reading this? So I can say I’ve finished the series . . .
Allegiance by Cayla Kluver
I didn’t love the first one, but the cover is really pretty!
Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder
I’ve read this before, I think. When I was really really really really young. And I don’t remember a thing about it. So I want to re-read it to see what I think about it now!
Free to Fall by Lauren Miller
Such a pretty hardcover book! And the concept looks really intriguing, so . . .
Gameboard of the Gods by Richelle Mead
I’ve been looking for this one for ages! I think Richelle Mead is a good writer, and I’ll be interested to see what this series is like.
Silver Shadows by Richelle Mead
More Richelle Mead!
