Let’s Play a Game of Catch-Up (Weeks 20, 21, 22)

Holy @$%^&* I am freaking late posting this! My sincerest apologies, everyone. I’ve been busy applying for jobs and writing a story–which I’m actually really proud of. Oh, and reading too, of course. However, I still haven’t finished any of the books I’ve planned to! I don’t know what’s going on with me! I have all this […]

I’M LATE, I’M LATE FOR A VERY IMPORTANT DATE!

I AM SO SORRY. This week has been one of the most hectic weeks of this year! As such, I haven’t been able to blog at all for the past few days. I have three papers to write, finals to study for, friend drama to deal with, family tensions, girlfriend issues, and my own emotional […]

Week Seventeen: Goals and NPM Day 22

Do you have any idea how stressful it was to pick a book for this week? Just ONE book? Although I’ve started to pack some of my things away (including books) for the summer, my desk is still filled with amazing, tempting books. However, what with finals soon and all of my papers&projects, I’ve decided […]

Week Sixteen: Goals and National Poetry Month Day 15

This week is going to be busy as hell, so my goals this week aren’t going to be terribly extensive. In fact, my only goal is to finish Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins. The copy I have right now is borrowed from my friend so I need to return it as soon as possible. Speaking of borrowed books, […]

Week Fifteen: Goals AND Poetry Month Days 8 and 9 (sorry again -_-)

I AM SO SORRY. Yesterday was Easter, and in addition to a house full of annoying relatives and siblings’ dates, there were a lot of issues going on at the same time. So I apologize for not having the time to post yesterday or earlier today. I am glad to say that I am back […]

Week Fourteen: Results AND Poetry Month Days 5, 6, and 7 (Holy poop, long post)

I am terribly sorry for yet another late post. My English professor has been murdering us with papers, and I had to write one by midnight last night. To say the least, this has been a pretty stressful week. I haven’t been able to find the time to update the blog, but I’ll try to […]

Week Fourteen: Goals & Poetry Month Day 1

Last night was not what I expected. I told you that I was going to finish A Room of One’s Own and reach the halfway point in The Girl Who Played With Fire. That was totally my plan. I made tea and curled up on my bed with my books. And then I had this huge emotional meltdown because […]

Week Thirteen: Results & Poetry Month!

To recap this week’s goals, I wanted to read Catching Fire, Old Country, A Room of One’s Own, and half of The Girl Who Played With Fire.  I finished Old Country in about an hour (since it’s only about a hundred pages). Like I said in my Goals post, the book is a dark, slightly political fairy tale. […]

Week Twelve: Results

Play the fanfare, please! I have successfully finished The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson! After months of staring at the cover, I have finally reached the end! And it was AMAZING. I am completely in love with this book. I immediately ran over to my campus library to watch the Swedish version of the […]
