SUNDAY FUNDAY: WEEK IN REVIEW [4]

The lovely Cristina over at Girl in the Pages started Sunday Funday as a way to recap the bookish (and not-so-bookish) things that have happened that week. I thought it’d be a really fun way to keep you guys up to date on what I’ve been reading, reviewing, and wanting to read but also to tell you a little bit more about myself outside of my book love. I think I’ll tailor the post each week to what I’ve done but I will always try to include a book haul and a new book or two that I’ve added to my want-to-read list. 🙂

June 16 – 22, 2014

I had an interesting week. I had a very interesting opportunity came up that I don’t know much about but I am freaking out over. Fingers crossed something amazing happens with that.

I also joined up with the Summer Blogger Promo Tour hosted by The Book Bratz, and I’m super excited about it. I’ll be getting to know 8 other amazing book bloggers and each Sunday, starting July 6, I’ll be posting something (an interview, collab, etc) about/with each of those bloggers. I’m really looking forward to that!

Summer Blogger Tour

Some posts on my blog this week you might be interested in:

I was nominated for a second Liebster Award by the lovely Rachel at Confessions of a Book Geek.

I also did a post on The Problem with Books which got a lot of attention! I loved how many people were able to relate to it, and I’ve got another “The Problem with” post in the works. If you have any ideas for a discussion post or a “The Problem with” post, definitely let me know in the comments! 🙂

Not my post, but I thought this post about YA fiction over on The Atlantic was extremely well-written, and I agree with it 100%. Here’s a quote I especially liked:

“YA doesn’t need rescuing. All it needs is a change in the way people talk about it.”

Books read: I’m reading Necroscope by Brian Lumley this week. It’s taking a lot longer than I thought it would. I’ve got less than a hundred pages left now!

TBR: Nil by Lynne Matson, which was described by A.N. Willis on Twitter as “Lost meets The Maze Runner, with a welcome dose of romance (shirtless surfer dudes aplenty)”. I mean, YES, please!

I also finally got To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han and Everything Leads to You by Nina LaCour from the library.

AND I won this ARC of Say What You Will by Cammie McGovern from Happy Book Lovers through a Twitter giveaway! Can’t wait to read that one.

AND I won a copy of The Sting of Summer by Katherine Over from a Goodreads competition. Woo! Lucky week for me.

Non-bookish things:

So I’M FREAKING OUT about the Teen Wolf premiere tomorrow night on MTV (10/9c), and I recapped Season One and Season Two on WatchPlayRead. The Season Three recap will be up tomorrow so watch out for that.

I also revisited David Wong’s John Dies at the End on WPR, too!

On Monday, I went to the movie theater to see “Rise of the Cybermen” and “The Age of Steel” (two episodes of Doctor Who from when David Tennant was the Doctor) on the big screen. It was AMAZING. It was incredible to see these two episodes on that huge screen. And David Tennant. Especially David Tennant.

Non-bookish things I’m excited about:

TEEN WOLF. TEEN WOLF. TEEN WOLF. I’m excited. If you’re a fan of the show, first, tell me in the comments, and then follow me over on Twitter because I’ll probably be live tweeting my reaction as I watch. 🙂 Just watch the trailer. It. Looks. Epic.

SUNDAY FUNDAY: WEEK IN REVIEW [3]

SUNDAY FUNDAY: WEEK IN REVIEW

The lovely Cristina over at Girl in the Pages started Sunday Funday as a way to recap the bookish (and not-so-bookish) things that have happened that week. I thought it’d be a really fun way to keep you guys up to date on what I’ve been reading, reviewing, and wanting to read but also to tell you a little bit more about myself outside of my book love. I think I’ll tailor the post each week to what I’ve done but I will always try to include a book haul and a new book or two that I’ve added to my want-to-read list. 🙂

June 9 – 15, 2014

This week I reached 100 followers on my blog!! I’m really excited about this because I’ve been blogging for less than three months! I also went over 3,000 overall views, which I’d say is pretty awesome.

Also, I won an ARC of Say What You Will by Cammie McGovern from Cassie over at Happy Book Lovers. YAY!

Books read: I’m sad to say I only read two books this week: The Revealed by Jessica Hickam (linked back to my review) and Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson (review coming tomorrow).

I also read and reviewed the five chapter sneak peek of Isla and the Happily Ever After. I CAN’T WAIT for that to come out!

TBR: BIG TBR this week!

I checked out four books from the library this week: Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys (based on this review by Booknerderi), The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater, Say What You Will by Cammie McGovern (right before I won the ARC), and The Strain by Guillermo del Toro (I am SO excited about this one).

Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys, The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater, Say What You Will by Cammie McGovern, and The Strain by Guillermo del Toro

I also bought these four books at Books-a-Million for $25! I originally checked out Second Chance Summer from the library, but when I went to return two others and renew SCS, I was told I had to return it because someone else had requested it! RUDE. Haha. So I bought it instead. In addition to SCS, I got The Evolution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin (for $3!!), The Daughter of Smoke & Bone and Days of Blood & Starlight by Laini Taylor (for $5.97 each!). Sales are THE. BEST.

Books-a-Million haul, June

I’m reading Brian Lumley’s Necroscope next. It is the first in a 13 book series, and I’ll be reading one book a month until I finish. My dad has been telling me to read it for a LONG time. He read The Humans based on my recommendation, so I decided to read something he recommended, though I know 13 books is a little different than 1. Anyway, I’m excited. I’ve been reading a lot of YA and contemporary recently. I needed something different. Also, yay for vampires!

Non-bookish things:

I went to see How to Train Your Dragon 2 today! WOW! It was amazing. I actually liked it even more than the first one, and I loved the first one. I would definitely recommend going to see it! Be prepared for awesomeness. Also some unexpected feels.

Today was also Father’s Day! I got kind of emotional this afternoon. I finished reading Second Chance Summer, which has A LOT of feels in the dad department. I was already crying reading the book, but when I finished it, I just couldn’t handle it. I’m so glad my dad was there for me to hug while I cried.

OH! I also got an internship with Month9Books this week! I’ll be interning with their PR department and helping with events. You guys should check them out. They publish speculative fiction, which if you couldn’t tell, I really like. 🙂

AND! I made a new friend this week. I’ve been getting to know a fellow Mississippi-based blogger, Booknerderie, and it’s been fun. She has an awesome book blog, so you should go check her out. Her reviews are honest, informal, and fun. And she uses words like “amazeballs”, which I really think should be used in more reviews. Haha.

Non-bookish things I’m excited about:

Look at this awesome shirt I got in the mail this week!!

ISN'T IT AWESOME?!

ISN’T IT AWESOME?!

TOMORROW my movie theater (all Cinemarks/Tinseltowns?) are showing “Rise of the Cybermen” and “The Age of Steel” (two episodes of Doctor Who from when David Tennant – Ten – was still the Doctor). I’m so excited to see these two episodes on the big screen! Should be fun. 🙂

What about you? What bookish and non-bookish things happened in your life this week?

Life of a Blogger: Collections

Life of a Blogger is a weekly meme hosted by The Novel Heartbeat. You can see the full list of topics HERE.

This week’s theme is collections

It’s probably obvious, but my main collection is books. Unfortunately, most of my books are currently packed up, so I can’t post a picture, but I have HUNDREDS. Before we packed them all up, I had about three bookshelves or so, and I currently have one that is almost full, so yeah, I have a lot of books.

I am also a coffee addict, and I really love coffee cups, so that’s my next collection. Again, some of them are packed up, but these are some of mine. I’ve got several Doctor Who ones, a couple of penguin ones, two Keep Calm ones, and various others. The second picture is the coffee cup cabinet in our kitchen, which is actually missing a few (they’re in the dishwasher).

In addition to books, I’m a big fan of music. I love going to live shows, and I’m almost always listening to music. These are just the CDs I bought while in Scotland for a year and since being home.

My CD Collection

I really enjoy getting to meet bands and musicians so I can tell them how much I love/related to their music. I’ve met several of my favorites. Sometimes I ask them to sign a CD for me. Here are a couple of the ones I have signed.

The Neighbourhood - I Love You

The Neighbourhood actually signed the physical CD, which was silly and great.

Clockwise: Passenger, Eric Hutchinson, King Charles, Joshua James

I’m kind of an all-kind-of-entertainment person, so I also really love movies and television. I’m just a sucker for a good story. This is the movie cabinet in our house. My family really likes movies. 🙂 I’ve seen most of these.

Movie collection

What about you? What kind of things do you collect?

SUNDAY FUNDAY: WEEK IN REVIEW [2]

SUNDAY FUNDAY: WEEK IN REVIEW

Cristina over at Girl in the Pages started Sunday Funday as a way to recap the bookish (and not-so-bookish) things that have happened that week. I thought it’d be a really fun way to keep you guys up to date on what I’ve been reading, reviewing, and wanting to read but also to tell you a little bit more about myself outside of my book love. I think I’ll tailor the post each week to what I’ve done but I will always try to include a book haul and a new book or two that I’ve added to my want-to-read list. J

June 2 – 8, 2014

Books read: I finished reading The Chance You Won’t Return by Annie Cardi and read all of Paradigm by Ceri A. Lowe (both titles linked to my reviews). I had things I didn’t like about each, but I ended up enjoying both: I gave them each a 7 (pretty good) rating. Paradigm took me longer to read than I expected, but it turns out that the paperback version will be over a thousand pages! No wonder it took me four days. Ha.

TBR: I have an e-ARC of The Revealed by Jessica Hickam to read this week, as well as Second Chance Summer checked out from the library, due on the 14th. I’m looking forward to both of them, but especially Second Chance Summer.

I also added several novels to my TBR list on Goodreads, so head over to my profile to check them out. You know, if you want. Also!!! I received a sample of Isla and the Happily Ever After from NetGalley, and I AM DYING TO READ IT. Probably going to fly through it after I post this. I’m so looking forward to that book!

Non-bookish things:

Well, it’s actually somewhat bookish, but I saw the movie adaptation of The Fault in Our Stars yesterday with my mom and friend. Oh my goodness. Yes. So good. Please go see it. It’s beautiful, emotional, powerful, and everything I had hoped for. I didn’t review it, but you can read my little post about the book in which I ended by imploring you see the movie, “For me, for you, for Hazel Grace and Augustus Waters.” Note: remember to bring tissues.

Also, my mom’s birthday was yesterday. She got this adorable new bird, a parrotlet, as her present. She’s named her Roxanne. 🙂

Roxanne

Other than these few things, my week was pretty boring. Job applications, babysitting, life.

Non-bookish things I’m excited about:

Again, it’s pretty bookish, but my dad finally read Matt Haig’s The Humans, which I’d been trying to get him to do for about a year (I had the book with me in Scotland, so it’s understandable he didn’t read it for a while). He loved it just as I hoped he would, and he actually cried (at the same parts as me, too). He said the book was beautiful and fantastic. I don’t know if you’ve ever convinced someone you love to read a book that you love just with your love for it (lots of love for The Humans) and that you are hoping will appreciate it like you do, but the fact that my dad adored this book as much as I did makes me seriously happy. Now to convince my mom to read it.

There is a seriously beautiful and amazing woman on So You Think You Can Dance this season who has alopecia like me. I was watching the episode and she came on and I pretty much fangirled immediately. She is a freaking awesome dancer and I hope she makes it far. We don’t know each other or anything, but it’s like I had an immediate connection with her and I am proud of her. Check out her audition.

I bought this seriously awesome shirt this week from woot.com. I mean, Tinker Bell AND Doctor Who?! Um, yes, please.

Last Sunday I mentioned that I would probably be getting a couple of tattoos this week. It didn’t happen yet, but I’m hoping to do it soon. I’ll post pictures when I do.

So how about you? What bookish or non-bookish things happened to you this week? What are you excited about?

SUNDAY FUNDAY: WEEK IN REVIEW [1]

The lovely Cristina over at Girl in the Pages started Sunday Funday a couple of weeks ago as a way to recap the bookish (and not-so-bookish) things that have happened that week. I thought it’d be a really fun way to keep you guys up to date on what I’ve been reading, reviewing, and wanting to read but also to tell you a little bit more about myself outside of my book love. I think I’ll tailor the post each week to what I’ve done but I will always try to include a book haul and a new book or two that I’ve added to my want-to-read list. 🙂

May 25 – June 1, 2014

Books read:

This week I read and reviewed Coin Heist by Elisa Ludwig, which I wasn’t really a fan of (like, AT ALL), and The Museum of Intangible Things by Wendy Wunder, which made me feel weird. I haven’t started the next book on my list (The Chance You Won’t Return by Annie Cardi) yet because I’m worried I won’t enjoy it. I guess I’m kind of in a little book reading slump, and this makes me sad.

TBR:

In addition to The Chance You Won’t Return, I’ve got Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson checked out from the library. I’m looking forward to that since I enjoyed Since You’ve Been Gone so much! I also have e-ARCs of Paradigm by Ceri A. Lowe and The Revealed by Jessica Hickam from Netgalley to read.

Today I found ALL THREE of Jenny Han’s The Summer I Turned Pretty trilogy in one book for $10 at Wal-Mart! I’ve been wanting to check her out for a while, and who could say no to that deal?! I’m excited to start that soon.

I’ve added Across the Universe to my to-read shelf on Goodreads, which I’d like to check out from the library soon. It sounds really interesting!

Non-bookish things:

This weekend I drove up to Memphis (about 3 ½ hours) to see Hands like Houses. They are one of my absolute favorite bands, and this was my third time to see them, but the first time in the States (I saw them previously in Glasgow, Scotland and Manchester, England last year). I got to hang out with them for a few after the show and say hi, and they all remembered meeting me! How cool is that? I also saw Alive Like Me live for the first time; they were one of the openers (along with Miss Fortune and Slaves). I’d only ever heard their first (and only) single, Start Again, and I thought they were freaking fantastic. I ended up buying one of their shirts at the show and then their single when I got home. I met their singer, Jairus, bass player, David, and one of their guitarists, Brandon, and they were very sweet and down to earth. I’m definitely looking forward to their album. Suffice it to say, I had an amazing time!

Here are a few pictures!!

I LOVE music, so if you have a band/musician that you think I might like, let me know! (No country though, sorry)

Non-bookish things I’m excited about:

TEEN WOLF. Holy freaking crap am I excited. I keep seeing the promo for it and freaking out. Watch it HERE. Season 4 premieres on June 23rd! Any Teen Wolf fans here? Let’s fangirl together!

New tattoos. I have two new tattoo ideas that I am pretty sure I’m getting done this week! One on my foot and one on my wrist. Pictures next Sunday if I get them. 🙂

I also would really like to see X-Men: Days of Future Past sometime this week. Looking forward to that.

 

What are some of the bookish or non-bookish things that happened to you guys this week? Let me know!
