Last month I referenced some sad news at work but was purposefully vague, possibly making you think there were layoffs or a death. Not quite as dire as that: just one of my closest friends at work was leaving my department for a different one. This left a vacancy and I applied for the position, meaning a promotion for me, and I got it! I found out earlier but it wasn't officially announced until this past week so I've been holding it in. I am so excited to stay in the same department with the same people I adore but to get to take on new responsibilities and grow more :) I haven't done anything new yet but my training supervisor knows I'm eager to get started once the work is there.
Amazon Vine-Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea by April Genevieve Tucholke and The Midnight Dress by Karen Foxlee
From Germany-Harry Potter and der Feuerkelch: I think it's pretty easy to figure out which book this is. Doesn't Harry look weird? It's just so different from the way Harry is drawn for the US version.
My Manchester United game started at a normal time this week (7 AM PST) and of course I was in front of the TV ready to watch. I was especially thrilled because my favorite player Chicharito actually got to start! Alas it was a loss :( Furthermore today my Eagles are visiting the Broncos so I don't have a good feeling about that. But at least the season for my Phillies is over today so no more losing for them! Oh and my softball team lost again. So basically it was not a good week for any sports team I support, making me feel a bit like a bad luck charm :(
So I don't mind the change in format for comments for blogspot blogs but I keep wanting to hit the "sign out" instead of the "publish" button. Is anyone else having this problem?
Also I'm trying to catch up on comments still but I think I'm just not going to comment on any posts older than a week if I don't get to it by tonight-I just feel too overwhelmed otherwise and it makes me not want to comment at all.
Week to Come: Quite a random week. Of course it's all YA except for the War and Peace update but it's touching on all kinds of topics and genres. I'm pretty excited about this week and look forward to discussing with you.
QB1 by Mike Lupica-makes me think of "Friday Night Lights" which is always a good thing.
War and Peace update
The Vow by Jessica Martinez
Pirouette by Robyn Bavati-after adoring Dancing in the Dark, I am excited for another ballet-related book from this talented Australian author.
All The Truth That's In Me by Julie Berry-have heard some creepy things about this book
Will in Scarlet by Matthew Cody, which looks like a cool take on Robin Hood.
