I haven't talked much about the holiday season because even though I'm excited for Christmas, I'm not really feeling it as a whole yet. The only film I've watched is "Love Actually" and I've only listened to a couple of songs, which is very unlike me. Personally I am blaming Thanksgiving for coming so early and throwing everything off. I hope to feel more Christmasy as the month goes on.
In other news, I have decided to be a soccer fan and am a little grouchy today because my team, Manchester United, is playing at 5:30 AM (PT) this morning. Usually they play at 9:30 Saturday mornings. However it is against big rival Manchester City so hopefully it will be a very exciting match to justify my early rising.
Reviews to come:
Perry's Killer Playlist by Joe Schreiber
Sequel to the very fun Au Revoir, European Chick but was it necessary?
Mystic City by Theo Lawrence
I love this gorgeous cover but other than knowing it was YA, I really wondered what to expect from this book in terms of genre and plot.
Rift by Andrea Cremer
I found the Nightshade trilogy highly addictive-did I find this prequel to be the same?
Not Exactly a Love Story by Audrey Couloumbis
A historical (set in the 1970s) that feels very contemporary-I have feelings about this one!
Some thoughts on The Hobbit (and my birthday!)
I won't have seen the film yet so it's just about the book
Forever a Lord by Delilah Marvelle
Ending the week with an adult historical romance-just what I need as a palate cleanser sometimes
Reading Goals for Today:
Finish The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater-I'm about 75% done and loving it! If I wasn't planning on watching my match, I would have stayed up late to finish this.
Read The Scandalous, Dissolute, No-Good Mr. Wright by Tessa Dare-this is a novella so that seems manageable.
Start Tempestuous by Kim Askew and Amy Helmes-hoping for a really fun twist on Shakespeare
What are you up to this fine Sunday?
