My softball team sustained ANOTHER loss, making us 0-3 :( The bummer is that we had four really good innings (including an amazing double play by our shortstop; as 2B, I had a great view of that). Unfortunately those four innings came after two absolutely awful innings where the other team scored most of their runs. Still I remain hopeful that we will eventually win a game. My dad agreed to help me practice catching grounders and I checked out some books from the library about softball basics in order to improve my own abilities (who's a nerd? This girl! Because if you can't learn it from books, is it really worth learning?)
Meanwhile in the professional world, Manchester United notched their second win (which is great as my boss had teased me after their draw-he's a City fan). Today my Eagles are hosting the Chargers and I'm hoping for a second win. Honestly I would be happy if the Eagles went 5-11 (though the optimist in me is hoping for 8-8) since we were 4-12 last season.
Yesterday was very fun as my mom and I hit an awesome mall a bit away from us. We visited Loft, The Limited, and J. Crew, among others, where I got some great things (and nudged her to start preparing for my birthday :) This mall also has a Cheesecake Factory so I got a delicious piece of chocolate mousse cheesecake-yummy!
Last week was crazy-I basically read the entire book and wrote my review the night before it went live. I'm used to being about two days ahead (when I first started my blog, I was up to a month ahead! The beauties of college compared to working full-time.) Then you all keep writing amazing discussion posts and reviews and I want to comment on all of them but struggle to fit it in. Does anyone comment through their phone? What do you use? I would definitely be able to comment a bit more if I could go through my phone.
Week to Come:
We're starting with The F-It List by Julie Halpern-its provocative title first drew my attention. Then we move to Chasing Shadows by Swati Avasthi, an intriguing blend of words with illustration in the form of graphic novel. For Wednesday, it is Promise Me Something by Sara Kocek, which I have not started yet but appears to be contemporary.
The Edge of Normal by Carla Norton looks very intense-I hope I know what I'm getting into! Friday's read is also intense: Not a Drop to Drink by Mindy McGinnis. I've read quite a few reviews mentioning its dark premise and powerful writing. We'll end on The Impersonator by Mary Miley, which sounds very lively.
And that's the week! How is your reading going?
