Ramblings and the Week to Come 23FEB14

Softball:
This will probably be a pretty short ramblings but I have exciting news to report. Yes, you guessed it: we won our first softball game. Though I did not score any runs (or even get on base), I did catch the ball at 2B for an out. I've never caught the ball in that position and it was a huge triumph for me. The rest of the team played amazing as you might guess, leading to a final score of 9-1. I hope we continue to play strong defensively as that is what really won the night for us.

Blogging:
Meanwhile I seem to have gotten some of my mojo back. I'm much more excited about reading and I can see the end of the tunnel in regards to my crazy work schedule. Next week, I expect to feel much more relaxed. I'm still a bit behind in my reading goal but I don't fear that I will never catch up. I think that March and the rest of the year will have plenty of opportunities to do so. Plus I've still managed to keep this blog active even in my toughest days so that's a blessing. I am a bit behind on commenting but I've managed to peek out a bit at what everyone else has going on.

Week to Come:
The Shadow Prince by Bree Despain-this is interesting so far. I'm not sure when I'll have a chance to finish but hopefully I will be able to post something this week. It's up in the air though with work and other commitments taking my attention.

I do have a Waiting on Wednesday post scheduled though so you can see what other titles I have on my mind.

The Week in Rewind: Early reviews of some anticipated YA titles
The Winner's Curse by Marie Rutkoski *recommended*
Ask Again Later by Liz Czukas
Death Sworn by Leah Cypess
Panic by Lauren Oliver

 Sharing the cover again because I highly recommend this book and because it's super pretty :)

What is everyone else up to? How is your reading going?

  6. I need to read the Winner's Curse like right now. I'm currently reading She Is Not Invisible, I just started it and it's pretty decent for the 16 pages I've read thus far.

    Congrats on winning your softball game. :-)

    PS Sorry it took me so long to get here -I have been really sick for almost two weeks, so I'm really behind on comments, but I'm finally feeling like myself again. I can't remember the last time I was sick and it is no fun :(
