This Week's Headlines:Hello, everyone! SPRING IS FINALLY HERE! We have 20 degreed weather, which is 68 degrees Fahrenheit for you Americans, and this is a really good sign! At least now I can walk to and from school without a jacket... and having to see the "S" word! Yeah, snow. *wipes sweat off forehead* The buds are growing in on the trees, the grass is turning greener, and you know what they say, April Showers Bring May Flowers! *dies of cheesiness* The weather is definitely brightening up my mood, I must say. Hopefully the warm weather stays.
At school we've begun to read Romeo and Juliet, and although we've only read one scene, I'M IN LOVE WITH IT AND EVERYTHING. I adore the humour (ew, there's a ton of dirty jokes, though), the writing, the craziness of the poetry, and just everything. I'm so excited to move on with it! Shakespeare may be my new remedy, I tell you. I also finished reading one of the first play adaptations I've ever read, The Diary of Anne Frank! It was amazing! You'll have to catch my review next week! I'll tell you that it really lives onto Anne's real story, you know.
What else? Our midterm report cards came in on Friday (I'm very impressed with my marks, tee hee) which means that there's only half of the semester left until SUMMER VACATION! And, there's 36 days until I leave for NYC for #BEA15! Let's sound the sirens, people!
My Book Haul:
The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson: I seriously love the new edition of this one, especially since it matches my copy of I'll Give You the Sun! I've heard so many gorgeous things about this one... so you'll see a review soon since I'm going for it ASAP.
Right of Way by Lauren Barnholdt: Two Way Street was really enjoyable, and I got this one for a great bargain! $4.99? YES! I'm so excited see what it'll hold for me!
The Winner's Crime by Marie Rutkoski: I loved the first book in this series, AND THIS ONE HAS BEEN SUCH AN ANTICIPATED READ FOR ME OF 2015! It's so beautiful, my friends, you all need a copy!
The Wicked Will Rise by Danielle Paige: F. I. N. A. L. L. Y. WHAT DOES THAT SPELL? FINALLY. UGGGHHHHH I enjoyed the first one to the biggest extent, and it was one of my favourite reads of 2014. This one is even more beautiful than what you see as a digital cover and anything you could ever imagine. SOOONNN!
|Library books! WOOT. I can't help myself, I tell you!|
*Thank you to Chapters, my amazing Canadian bookstore, and to my local library for supplying me with happiness. I love you too much.*
