On The Blog Last Week

On The Blog This Week

  • On Monday I review The Faster I Walk, The Smaller I Am by Kjersti Skomsvold.

In My Reading Life

Last week, I read Feed by M.T. Anderson, Blankets by Craig Thompson, and Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta. Up next is Going Bovine by Libba Bray.

In My Blogging Life

I’m planning to celebrate 2016 by posting every day for the first 16 days of the year. Prepare for an onslaught of posts. I’m working on a giant 5-part wrap-up of 2015, and some other stuff. I usually only post 3-5 times a week, so this should be challenging. I hope I can do it.

In The Rest Of My Life

Five things that made me happy last week:

  1. It snowed on Christmas.
  2. I ate so much junk food.
  3. I got a Barnes & Noble gift card. I already have plans for it.
  4. The massive essay I’ve been working on doesn’t require as much rewriting as I expected.
  5. My sister set up my mom’s new computer so I didn’t have to do it. I hate setting up new computers.

I hope you had a great Christmas. See you around the blogosphere!


  1. I had to set up my mom's new computer. It wasn't as bad as I expected it to be, and she's learning how to do things! She is FINALLY paying bills online...and on time! It sounds like your Christmas was a good one - I hope you have a happy new year!

  2. Mmmm junk food. Have a great week :)

  3. Junk food...yes! Lots of chocolate and popcorn here.

    I am curious about Libba Bray's books, which I've been noticing around the 'sphere.

    Enjoy! Here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

  4. That's great on the essay not requiring as much work as you were expecting AND not having to set up your mom's computer. I'm always the tech person for my family so it's always delightful when I don't have to mess with something. Have a great week and a happy New Year!

  5. Jealous you got snow on Christmas. We haven't had a white Christmas in my part of New York in forever.

  6. It sounds like you've had a pretty good week! I hope you're able to meet your posting goals! I'm sure I'll be by often! :P

    Here's my Weekly Recap!

  7. I binge on junk food sometimes :P They are the reason why my weight won't decrease :( I blame it all on the ice creams.

    Merry Belated Christmas to you!

    On the same note, I nominated you for the Liebster Award, do check out my post for more info! :)

  8. I really want to read Blankets. I would have loved snow on Christmas but it was warm here and just rainy. I also have had so much junk food with the holidays. I am over it now though. Yay for a B&N gift card! Have a great week!

  9. Sounds like you had a wonderful week! I look forward to your 2015 wrap-up posts!!
