Week in Review | Start of #RYBSAT

week in review

Hi everyone! This week I actually didn’t do as much reading as last week, mostly because I kept watching Friends (I’m watching the 5th season atm). I don’t feel that bad about not reading more because I read lot last week on Bout of Book Read-A-Long and last Friday RYBSAT or Read Your Book Shelves-A-Thon so I needed a short break from reading between them.

A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness | The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness | Just One Year by Gayle Forman | Where She Went by Gayle Forman | The Archived by Victoria Schwab | Amulett: Stenväktaren by Kazu Kibushi |

I got some great library books this week. I still have over 20 books from library and some times I feel like I wont ever finish reading them but all of them seem so awesome that I can’t just return them back without reading them. I have already read Amulett by Kazu Kibushi and liked it a lot. If you are wondering why there’s second T at the end of Amulett, it’s because it’s in Swedish. I had a little bit hard time reading it because of it but I still want to continue reading it because the art style was beautiful and this could be a good way for me to practice my Swedish.

Other books I finished this week were The Way of Shadows by Brent Weeks and Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson. I liked both of these a lot, they were action packed and  had great characters and the plots! I’ll be talking more on both of those on their own reviews but I’m really waiting to read the continuation for both of these books.

Are you taking part on #RYBSAT? What books did you read this week? Let’s chat on the comments!

Week in Review | Week 2 and Bout of Books Wrap Up

week in review

Hi everyone! How’s your week been? Did you participate on Bout of Books 12 that was happening throughout this week? I did and it was so much fun! I met new people, read lots of great books(!) and participated on at least two of the challenges!

Bout of Books

Soo, I read a few books this week. As in 8 books. Four of them were graphic novels but that’s still a lot! And all of them were such an awesome reads! I think that the smallest rating I gave this week was 4. So that’s that. I’ll be talking more about them on their own reviews but wow, just wow, how good the books were!boutofbookswrapup

1. What Happened to Goodbye by Sarah Dessen 4.5 stars
2. Saga Vol. 3 by Brian K. Vaughan 5 stars
3. The Girl with All the Gifts by M.R. Carey 4.5 stars
4. Blankets by Craig Thompson 4 stars
5. The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion 4 stars
6. The Walking Dead Vol. 3 by Robert Kirkman 4 stars
7. Sin City: The Yellow Bastard by Frank Miller 5 stars
8. We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves by Karen Joy Fowler 4 stars

I was also actually reading a 9th book, The Stories of Ibis by Hiroshi Yamatomo and I liked the beginning but after a reading a while I didn’t feel like reading at all. Today after thinking about it I decided to DNF it but I might try to read it in future again if I feel like it because I really liked the stories at the beginning.

I didn’t have that many goals for this than to read as much as I can, participate on the twitter chats, update what I was reading and participate on some of the challenges. I feel that I did really well on all of these because even though I ended up DNF:ing one book, I had so many other great books, I met some awesome people on both of the chats I participated and I took part on at least two of the challenges. If you are interested in seeing what I read each day, you can see it here.

This is all for me this week! I hopefully start posting reviews for the books I have read next week. I also heard that there’s a review-a-thon happening at the end of this month that I might take part in. How was your week? Did you participate on Bout of Books and if you did how did it go?

SCARLET!!!!

Ps. I also got me a new book this week. I actually I bought this before Christmas but Book Depository took it’s time and delivered it only this week. I really can’t wait to read this!

Welcome to my weekly feature where I discuss how the past week has gone. I hope that your beginning of the year has gone well. We didn’t do anything special on New Years Eve, stayed home and watched TV and other people shooting fireworks.

Books I read

week1read

1. The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa 4 stars
2. The Alloy of Law by Brandon Sanderson 3.5 stars
3. The Walking Dead: Vol. 2 by Robert Kirkman 4 stars
4. The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt 3.5 stars
5. The Colour of Magic by Terry Pratchett 4 stars

I was actually little bit surprised of how many books I read this week. The New Year and how I read The Goldfinch most of the week made me forgot almost all the books I read at the beginning of the week. As a new year’s resolution, I’ll be posting a separate review for these books in future. My favorite reads this week was definitely The Immortal Rules and The Walking Dead – graphic novel. Others were great too but not as great as these two.

It’s almost new year! This year went so fast, sometimes it feels unbelievable that it’s almost 2015. I’ll be posting my End of the Year review next week where I’ll talk about the books I have liked this year and other things. Also will be posting a New Year’s resolutions/goals posts on the 1st of January, telling you all the challenges and goals I have for 2015.

This week I didn’t read that much because we went to my mom’s house and spent Christmas there. I had books with me (over 7 for 3 nights holiday cough, cough) but didn’t really find that much time to read. Instead I spent time with my family, ate good food and rewatched Hunger Games. Also I got some nice presents, like a waffle maker, a gift card to a book shop and couple movies.

After coming home I finished reading The Blade Itself by Joe Abercrombie, tried to read Grasshopper Jungle by Andrew Smith but finally dnf’ed it because it just didn’t catch my interest. For some reason I couldn’t really relate to a horny, catholic school boy. Last night after watching The Two Towers with boyfriend I started The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa. It’s really good so far and I am excited to see what happens next.

Books I read

This weekend was Christmas Booktubeathon which I participated on. I changed my tbr for that a little bit but I’ll talk about that more in its own wrap up later this week. With the books that I read for the Booktubeathon I have read 7 books this week. Four of those have been for the read-a-thon and might change still because I have about six hours of Sunday to go.

                                      C360_2014-12-15-21-01-40-785C360_2014-12-14-14-04-03-479

1. Just One Day by Gayle Forman 3 stars
2. The Chimes by Charles Dickens 3 stars
3. Dark Places by Gillian Flynn 4 stars
4. The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon 4 stars
5. Saga Vol. 2 by Brian K. Vaughan 5 stars
6. Talon by Julie Kagawa 3 stars
7. Let It Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson & Lauren Myracle 3 stars

At the beginning of the week I finished reading Just One Day and The Chimes. I enjoyed both of them and hopefully post a review of them soon. Actually I am hoping that I finish A Christmas Carol today or tomorrow and then I can wrap up all the Dickens short stories that I have read recently.

Most of my week went with reading Dark Places by Gillian Flynn. Now I can say that I have read all of her books hopefully and this definitely was my favorite out of the three. Gone Girl was also good but at the moment I feel that it’s too hyped up. WIth Dark Places there’s not that much hype, but it was a great read. There was mystery, and sadness and insane people and I think that the character growth that the main character went through was very well done. I’m hoping that Gillian Flynn releases a new book soon because I really like her writing style.

 

Books I bought/received

C360_2014-12-21-15-28-42-579

This week I gave a new home to 8 new books! Four of them, Dead Reckoning, Dead Ever After, Deadlocked and The Sookie Stackhouse Companion, are continuation to the Sookie Stackhouse-series by Charlaine Harris. I’m planning on marathoning that series next year and these were the books I was still missing. Born At Midnight by C.C. Hunter, Dear Life by Alice Munro and The Last Werewolf by Glen Duncan I got from the fabulous second hand shop, Lukulaari.

Prince of Fools I got from the author, Mark Lawrence himself! I found out that he was looking for people to review his newest book and I sent him and asked about it and he send me a copy for a review! I just last week finished the first book in his first trilogy, Prince of Thorns, so I might finish that before I start this one but I can’t wait to read this one! And it’s signed! I am so glad!

Welcome to my weekly wrap up -post where I talk about the books I have read and what else has been going on in my life. As a side note, I still don’t have a camera because mine doesn’t work and I’m taking all these photos with my phone. The quality of these photos just frustrates me because I want to take good pictures to share with you guys but it just seems that I can’t.

C360_2014-12-14-13-55-16-476

Books I Read

1. The Hero of Ages by Brandon Sanderson 5 stars
2. Taivaslaulu by Pauliina Rauhala 3 stars
3. I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and was Shot by the Taliban by Malala Yousafzai with Christina Lamb 4 stars
4. Prince of Thorns by Mark Lawrence 3.5 stars
5. Lock In by John Scalzi 4 stars

Even though I read five books this week it still felt a slow reading week. I liked the feeling because it made me feel that I concentrated more on the book I was reading and didn’t just read because I had to. Also there was so many books that just made me feel different things like the end of Mistborn-trilogy by Brandon Sanderson, I still can’t really formulate my thoughts around the idea that it ended. Luckily he has written more books in that series so when I feel emotionally prepared I’ll be continuing it definitely.

I’ll be doing for most of the books their own separate reviews but I decided to talk about Taivaslaulu here because it was in Finnish and I don’t have enough to say about it to make it’s own review. It’s about this Laestadian couple and how the way they are having a new baby every year, makes the wife more and more tired and finally she just can’t handle it. At the same time we get to read about these different traditions and views of the worlds that they have. It was an interesting read. I liked how the writing was sort of a lyrical and the way that the couple felt about each other over the years was portrayed well. The writer actually used couple different writing styles throughout the book and at one point it felt little bit distracting and also made it hard for me to get attached to the characters.

I also finished my first audio book in a long time, Lock In by John Scalzi. I’ll be doing a separate review for this too, to discuss all the things it made me feel. Now I really want to start a new audio book, so if you have any suggestions, tell me down on the comments!

C360_2014-12-14-14-04-03-479I’m currently reading Just One Day by Gayle Forman. I’m only couple chapters in but seems to be a cute contemporary romance. I also need to finish The Chimes: A Goblin Story and A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens for A Very Dickens Christmas Read-Along. Because the week just somehow flew past me this week I didn’t get to reading The Chimes: A Goblin Story but hopefully I’ll be reading it at the beginning of the week.

Blogwise I’ll be continuing my blogmas posts and I have been thinking of writing some of my challenges for next year. Also I might participate on the booktube – a – thon, which is from 19th to 21st of December.

Week in Review | Week 49

Where does the time go? Again one week has gone and it’s time for the weekly review. This week I did a little bit more reading done and also met friend and bought some Christmas presents.IMG_20141207_162929

Books I Read

1. Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake 2 stars
2. The Scorch Trials by James Dashner 3 stars
3. Angelfall by Susan Ee 3 stars
4. Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel 5 stars
5. Sylvia Plath by Sylvia Plath 4 stars
6. The Cricket on the Heart by Charles Dickens 4 stars

I feel that this was a good reading week even though I read one 2 star book. Actually looking now at the books I read I am surprised how many there are. I have already done a review for The Scorch Trials and will be doing one for the Station Eleven and the poems by Sylvia Plath some time in the future. I also will talk more about the short stories in future in a post of their own.

I feel like the biggest reason I didn’t like Anna Dressed in Blood so much was the hype surrounding it. I had seen many reviews talking about how scary it is but as I was reading it, it didn’t feel scary at all. For some reason I thought that the main character would be a girl and was surprised when I finally realized that Cas was actually a boy. Otherwise the book didn’t really leave any impression on me so I gave it 2 stars because of that.

Angelfall was again a book that was hyped a lot. The copy I had actually proclaims itself as an internet sensation on the cover so I really was waiting for something amazing. I can understand why it’s so hyped book, because there’s different kind of angels, badass girl as a main character and so on. Still I couldn’t really connect with the characters and I didn’t really like the romance between the main characters. I gave this book 3 stars because the mother, even though I didn’t understand how she travelled faster than her daughter and the ending. It ended that way that even though I didn’t really feel that invested in the story I might pick the next books in future and see what happens.IMG_20141207_161955

Currently I am reading The Hero of Ages by Brandon Sanderson. It’s the third book in the Mistborn-trilogy and I am loving it already. I feel so conflicted because I don’t want the book to end because then I have to leave the characters I have come to love behind but also I want to read it as fast as I can so that I see what happens with the characters. I am about 150 pages in and feel like I can’t put it down.

This week also I decided to try audiobooks and joined Audible.com. When you join you get one month free with them so I used my first credit on John Scalzi’s Lock In, narrated by Wil Wheaton. I have to say I like the story and the Wil’s voice. I think i’ll be keeping my Audible account for the time being so if you have any suggestions on audiobooks I would love to hear them!Screenshot_2014-12-07-11-54-18

Saga Vol. 2 by Brian K. Vaughan
Lord of the Flies: Casebook Edition by William Golding
Hollow City by Ransom Riggs

I bought Saga Vol. 2 and Lord of the Flies when I was meeting my friend and I have to say that I’ll be sticking on ordering my comics/graphic novels from the internet because Saga was so expensive in the shop we went! Still I wanted to continue reading it and decided to buy it from there. Lord of the Flies I bought from my favorite second hand shop, Lukulaari, and I decided to buy this version because it includes essays surrounding the novel too and I decided that they would be interesting to read.

I won Hollow City by Ransom Riggs when I participated on Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-A-Thon and it finally came to me last week! I have read the first one but I think I’ll be rereading it before reading this one because I can’t remember much of it.IMG_20141205_132538

Next Week

Next week I don’t have anything planned yet. I don’t feel like doing strick TBR’s so I don’t know what I’ll be reading after The Hero of Ages. I’ll be also doing my blogmas posts everyday next week too! Above picture is a little peek at one of the posts I have been thinking of doing, introducing my newest baby!

How’s your week been? What have you read? Tell me down on the comments, please!

Week in Review | Week 48

Hi! It’s again time for this week’s wrap up! This week I didn’t read as much as some of the other weeks because I spent time on Youtube and watching movies and series. I also started couple crochet projects and most of them I just need to finish now!

books books books

Books I read

1. Puella Magi Madoka Magica: The Movie – Rebellion by Magica Quartet 4 stars
2. Red Seas Under Red Skies by Scott Lynch 4 stars
3. Cardcaptor Sakura Omnibus 1 by Clamp 3 stars
4. All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr 3.5 stars
5. The Haunted Man by Charles Dickens 3 stars

I had a really good week reading wise, even though I didn’t read that much I read well written books. Also I read a lot of manga this week. Before university I used to read a lot of manga but nowadays I don’t have so much time. Still I think I’ll be trying to read more of it in the future because I still love them a lot.

They published Madoka Magica in Finnish so I read it the same day that I bought it. I loved it. Madoka Magica is one of my favorite animes and I still need to see the 3rd movie with subtitles (I watched it in Japan for the first time) but reading this manga I didn’t really remember a lot of it and I am interesting to see what happens.

Reading Cardcaptor Sakura was really nostalgic. I watched the anime when I was smaller but I think I never did finish watching it. I might see it again if I have time. Reading these two mangas this week made me really want to read more and hopefully I do. I might do a series in the future, talking about all the manga and anime I have seen? Would that be interesting?

Charles Dickens’ The Haunted Man is part of the Very Dickens Christmas Read-Along. Last week we read his short story The Story of The Goblins Who Stole A Sexton and I liked that a lot. I haven’t really read any Dickens before so this is a perfect opportunity to read some of his shorter stories before trying to read his novels. The Haunted Man was harder to read than the story from the last week. Especially in the beginning where he described the chemist I had hard time to follow but after a while I got more used to his style and started enjoying the story.

I’ll be doing proper reviews of these short stories during my blogmas as well as the other two books I read this week, Lynch’s Red Seas Under Red Skies and All The Light We Cannot See by Doerr. I enjoyed reading both of these novels and can’t wait to write a review of both of them!madoka magica

My Life

Like I said at the beginning of this post I didn’t read as much as I might have this week. I think that isn’t actually so bad because the books I read I feel like I needed to spend more time with them and not just hurry through, if you know what I mean?

This week also bought things for my #TBTBSanta and some other Christmas presents. I can’t really understand how it’s already almost Christmas and New Years. Where did the time go?

Most of my time I spent actually on Youtube or watching movies with my boyfriend. We watched I Am Legend and Jurassic Park. I hadn’t seen them so they were totally new to me. Should I do reviews of them?OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Next Week

I’m currently reading Anna Dressed In Blood by Kendare Blake. It’s a nice quick read but I am not really blown away with it. I’m also trying to listen Kathy Reich’s Break No Bones as an audio book, but I feel that that isn’t going too well. I can’t really concentrate on listening and usually I notice after a while that I haven’t listened to it at all.

After Anna Dressed In Blood I’ll be reading Scorch Trials, the second book in Mae Runner – series by James Dashner. Otherwise I don’t really know what I’ll be reading. Don’t feel like making any definite tbr-pile, I just pick up something that interests me.

Ps. The pictures aren’t going to be so great for some time. My camera won’t turn on so till I get it to work I’ll be taking the pictures with my phone. I might also post some pictures from my time in Japan just for fun. 🙂

Week in Review | Week 45 & 46

Hi again! I didn’t do a week review last Sunday because I was having a small reading slump and didn’t really feel like reading or posting anything. Luckily it passed and I decided to wrap these both weeks here. So let’s get started!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERABooks I read

1. Piiri (Circle) by Mats Strandberg 3 stars
2. The Bees by Carol Ann Duffy 3 stars
3. Matkijanärhi (Mockingjay) by Suzanne Collins 3½ stars
4. Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter 3 stars
5. The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater 4 stars
6. The Story of The Goblins Who Stole a Sexton by Charles Dickens 3 stars

For some reason I feel like I didn’t read enough, even though I finished six books this last two weeks. I think for some reason reading started to feel like a chore, and I didn’t enjoy it that much and because of that I was in a small reading slump. Luckily it lasted only for couple days and then I read and finished The Scorpio Races which I posted a review last night. I try to write a review for most of these books, hopefully in somewhere near future. Charles Dickens short story, which I finished yesterday is part of A Very Dickens Christmas Read-along which I am participating in. I’m thinking that I post a review of the read-along and the short stories some time in December.

My life

It was my birthday last week! I didn’t really celebrate it, my bf was at school so I went to book shopping and library on Tuesday. Bf got me seven books (!) as a present so I’ll be posting those and the books I bought in the near future here. On Friday evening this week we went to see The Mockingjay Part 1. I’m thinking about posting a review of that and the book, hopefully next week. Shortly, I liked it even though it could have been made only in a one movie and I would have liked there to be more Prim than Gale. Katniss was superb of course.

The happiest thing that happened to me was that I got an internship! I’m going to be taking care of the sales at one event next summer! *Happy dancing* My internship has been stressing for a some time because I couldn’t find anything, nobody was answering my messages and then one of my friends messaged me and asked if I would want to help with this event. I said straight away yes and I’ll be starting some time around December.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Next week

 For next week I decided to not have any tbr-pile and just pick anything that I am interested in reading at that moment. I am currently reading the three books in the picture above. I don’t know what to think about Marisha Pessl’s Special Topics in Calamity Physics. It had been really slow to read and I haven’t enjoyed it that much but I am still hoping it to become better because I liked her other book, Night Film so much. I’m hoping the pace picks up or I might not finish it.

That’s all this time. How was your week? Please tell me down on the comments your thoughts on the books I have read or Mockingjay Part 1.

Week in Review | Week 45

Hi everyone and welcome to this week’s Week in Review-post. Here I talk about my last week, what books I have read, have I bought any books and other things happening in my life.

Books I read

books I read

1. The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath 4 stars
2. Sweep by Cate Tiernan 3 stars
3. Darth Vader and Son by Jeffrey Brown 3 stars
4. Every Day by David Levithan 5 stars
5. Empowered by Adam Warren 3 stars
6. Ms. Marvel: No Normal by G. Willow Wilson 5 stars
7. Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes 4 stars
8. Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac by Gabrielle Zevin 2 stars

I did pretty good reading wise this week. The picture is missing Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac because I took it on Friday afternoon and I finished reading it after that. Most of these were really short books or graphic novels which were fast to read. I didn’t finish the reading goal I set myself last week, I am currently reading The Circle by Mats Strandberg in Finnish and I am enjoying it a lot and hopefully finish it today or tomorrow. I didn’t finish The City and The City by China Miéville. The premise seemed really interesting but I felt that the translation wasn’t very good and I had really hard time reading it so I decided to leave it. I’ll be trying read his other works in English somewhere in the future because I have heard some good things about him and his writing.

The Bell Jar is the first book I have read from Sylvia Plath. I have actually been really ignorant because I didn’t know about her before this year. Mostly because in Finland we concentrate more on Finnish literature which means that I haven’t read that many classics that everybody else seems to have read. I’ll be slowly correcting this so if you have any classics that you think I should read, tell me on the comments! Back to The Bell Jar. It is really beautifully written, it had lots of sentences that I just wanted to quote. It concentrated on the small things, how one doesn’t really feel connected to anything. I feel it also portrays the problem with medical care to depressed, they give pills and put them in hospitals when there should be someone that listens to them. I think I would have appreciated this more if I knew more about Sylvia Plath’s life because I understood this book to be a semi-autobiography.

sweep cal blaire witches cate tiernan

After The Bell Jar I read the bind-up of the three first books on the Sweep-series by Cate Tiernan. The three books were all really short, about 200 pages only so I was glad that I had picked the bind-up version. Otherwise it would have felt that it would have ended too suddenly. The series is basically about Morgan who realizes that she’s a witch and how she starts to study Wicca with other teenagers. It was a quick, nice read and I liked how the writer had researched Wicca before starting to write about it. I just felt that everything went too well for Morgan and the things seemed to solve themselves too easily. I might continue the series and see what happens in the next bind-up.

There’s nothing really to say about Darth Vader and Son, it’s a cute short graphic novel/picture book for people who like Star Wars. I liked the art style a lot. The second graphic novel I read was Empowered by Adam Warren. I haven’t read that many superhero-graphic novels so I didn’t know what to except. It’s about a girl that has a really tight and revealing costume which loses its powers when it brakes up. That happens a lot and our MC finds herself a lot of times gagged and tied up for which the other superheros tease her. It has romance, sex and violence in it and I thought it was pretty funny so I gave it 3 stars.

The last book I finished this week was Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac. I picked this book up because one of my favorite booktubers, Ariel, recommended it. I didn’t like this so much. The premise was really interesting but I didn’t really like any of the characters. I liked the parts where Naomi discovered herself, but I never understood why she was the cool kid before her amnesia. I would have loved it to concentrate more on the family relations but all just seemed to happen so that the reader saw the end result. First I gave this book three stars but as writing this, I realized that I didn’t really like this so much so I changed it to two stars.

I’ll be doing an review posts for Every Day, Ms. Marvel and Falling Kingdoms in the near future. I have lots of ideas for post and I just need time to get writing them.

My life

This week I wrote two reviews on the blog, the first one about Scarlet and Cress and the second one about The Lies of Locke Lamora. I also started running again. I downloaded a running app on my phone and I am liking it so far. I only went running once because the day I was going to do my second run it started snowing. I don’t have winter running shoes and the roads are now covered in ice so I don’t know when I am going to go running again. Hopefully next week, the snow should melt away then. I really want to start some sport again, it just feels so good to be moving and use your body.

books I bought

This week I got also some books. I don’t know much about the two other books but I’m really excited to read Throne of Glass, I have heard a lot of great things about it! I’m going to read it right after I have finished most of my library books. I also went to library and got five more books to read and I’ve been thinking about making a video of all the library books I currently have. They seem all to be great books and I can’t wait to read them!

I decided to get rid of some of my books. I am going to get rid off of 58 of my books, at the moment they are waiting in piles in our living room. I think I’ll be mostly donating them or smuggling them to my mother. Still I have lots and lots books to read but at least I am getting rid off the ones that I certainly am not going to read.

Saturday night we watched Edge of Tomorrow with my bf. I read somewhere on the blog sphere that someone is organizing a scifi month now in November and even though I am not taking part on it, I thought it would be nice to watch some scifi during November. I am still new to the genre which is a good topic for another time but I thought that I could write a small review for the movie too.

Next week

books I'll be reading

Next week I’ll be reading hopefully these books. I am in the middle of The Bees and the Circle. I’m also listening Carmilla by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu. It’s a Librivox recording and I am really enjoying it. I think I finish it next week too because it’s not really long book, I think the audiobook lasts only about three hours. And because I have never enough things to read I started a new webcomic: Strong Female Protagonist. I saw someone talking about this in twitter and it seemed interesting so I decided to give it a go. It’s actually going to be published as a graphic novel and I don’t know if should buy it.

It’s also my birthday on Tuesday! My boyfriend is going to be school that day so I think I’ll go book shopping on Tuesday and on the weekend celebrate with him. I’ll be turning 23. I can’t believe how fast time has gone. My boyfriend ordered me some books as a present and I can’t wait to see what he got for me! He had really hard time picking them he said.

I’m going to read The Mockingjay next week because the movie is coming at the end of this month and I decided to take part on Carpe This Librum – bookclub. They as many other bookclubs are reading The Mockingjay because of the movie. If you want to join in, you can find the group from Goodreads and the hash-tag on twitter and Instagram is #WeBurnYouBurn.
