THIS WEEK IN BOOKS
Currently Reading I generally try not to listen to multiple audiobooks all at once, but I have three books out from the library that I really want to finish before they go back on June 22. So I’m currently listening to…
- The Rose and the Dagger by Renee Ahdieh
- A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas
- The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons
- The Shadow Queen by C.J. Redwine
Books Borrowed And Bought So I have some surprising news on this front…
-Bought So admittedly I didn’t exactly buy these audiobooks. I got them for free through Audiobook Sync, a summer program run by Audiofile which is open to everyone and which gives everyone two free audiobooks per week. But I couldn’t exactly put these two books in the “Borrowed” or the “Received for Review” categories. If you’re interested in getting either or both of these books for free, they’ll be up for grabs until this Wednesday.
- I’ll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson
- Zac & Mia by A.J. Betts
-Received For Review I’m super excited to get to…
- The Last Boy and Girl in the World by Siobhan Vivian (digital audiobook–finished copy from publisher)
- Unplugged by Donna Freitas
- Last Seen Leaving by Caleb Roehrig
READ AND REVIEWED
- Gotham Academy Vol. 1: Welcome to Gotham Academy by Becky Cloonan, Brendan Fletcher, and Karl Kerschl

PERSONAL AND BLOGGING NEWS
So bad news in the audiobooking arena. My laptop’s power cord broke so I had to order a new one which won’t arrive for another 3-4 days. Which means that I won’t be able to listen to my audiobooks from the library. Yes, I could use the app on my phone, but it’s just much more of a pain in the rear. *Big sighs all around* “How are you writing this if you have no laptop?” you may be asking. I’m using a computer at my mom’s work, which is a godsend!
But anyhoo. Enough lamenting. What else have I been up to? Well, I had to get a bunch of blood tests done, so I had to drink this icky sugar water and got stuck with a ton of needles. It was fun (hint: that was sarcasm). But other than that, the week wasn’t that bad. I’m preparing to start taking 2 classes at the local community college in the fall. But since the credits aren’t transferable to my university, I have to pay out of pocket for the classes. My mom has vowed we’ll find some way to pull the money together, though. I’m thinking of taking a biology course and a 2nd year college Arabic course, so that’ll be fun and challenging. I’m looking forward to it!
It’s been chill on the blogging front. I’ve been kind of relaxing on posting because honestly I’ve needed to. There’s not too much planned for this coming week either because of my broken laptop cord. *sighs once more*
Anyhoo, how are you guys doing? What have you been up to? Anything exciting planned? Tell me all in the comments!
Over and out!
