New in my Reading/Blogging/Personal Life: 

This week marked my second and final week of orientation. It flew by at rapid speed! It was exhausting, and what made it even more exhausting was the fact that I had a allergy/sinus flare up. I spent most of this week coughing, sneezing, and just all around a sickly mess. Thankfully, the allergies have seemed to dissipated and hopefully it stays that way! I don't know about you all but I hate cold/sinus related issues...they just make me into a cranky toddler like adult, no matter how much I try to suppress it lol 

Can I saw how freaking excited about THEY BOTH DIE AT THE END. This book has SO MUCH HYPE, and I'm hoping and praying I like it as much as everyone else has!! Also, the cover of EVEN THE DARKEST STARS is gorgeous!! 

As for reading, I managed to squeeze in four books - GLOW, FIRST WE WERE IV, A REFERENCE TO MURDER, and SUMMONER. GLOW was so good!! It was a dual narrative, featuring the POV of a high school graduate dealing with family issues & a dial painter during the early 1900s. A lot of hard issues were tackled: radium poisoning and factory working conditions in the early 1900s. It was a very interesting and thought provoking read - I simply can't wait to share about it this week!! FIRST WE WERE IV left me torn - one part of me really liked it (especially the ways in which it presented revenge) but another part of me was left feeling underwhelmed. It's going to take me a while to fully process it. A REFERENCE TO MURDER was fantastic - a great surprise! SUMMONER was good for a lazy Saturday but again, I was left feeling underwhelmed. :( 

Lots of exciting things coming up this week on the blog, however, so make sure to stop by!! I start classes on Monday, so I don't know how much I'll "be around," but I'll try my best to stop by everyone's blog who comments!! :)
