I shared my thoughts on a reread of Twilight — careful, they’re not good.
I reviewed the latest by everyone’s favourite squirrel, Scaredy Squirrel Goes Camping by Melanie Watt
I wondered what we’re reviewing when we review books & what we take into consideration with our ratings.
I posted by update for the last week of the Under the Ever Night read-along — I’m sad it’s over!
I shared my addiction to Jon Klassen — a wonderful picture book author!
I reviewed Oz: The Great and Powerful — a movie I loved!
I talked about the Top Ten Books I Recommend the Most (with a few more than 10)
I reviewed the audiobook for The Stone Rose (Doctor Who, New Series Adventures #7), by Jacqueline Raynor
I had some adventures with yarn and made a travel mug cozy
The Confessions of Rachel & Elyen continues with Elyen’s entry (miss week one?)
This week was BUSY! The library where I work is preparing for a move in a week, so there has been lots of things to do. I’m surprised I haven’t dreamed of being trapped in a box yet, since I’ve seen a lot of them! Though, I have to say that I really love packing up books because it’s like organizing and cleaning — one of my favourite things!
I’d like to say that lots of other exciting things have happened, but I pretty much have been laying on the floor when I come home, with my eyes shut. I don’t think I’ve been the best reader this week, either. It might be the book I’m reading, but I haven’t been able to focus on anything.
Oh, and it’s EASTER weekend! So there has been chocolate. Yes.
Book Bingo Challenge Update:
- I still need 26 more books to complete this challenge! I actually thought that I could get a full BINGO by the end of March, but I’m not going to. The problem is that I read a lot of books that DON’T fit on the Bingo card. And the rereads drag me down! But I am making progress, which is good!
- Here’s my written progress –> HERE.
Seriously Series Challenge Update:
- I finished a series that I had started YEARS ago AND I finished a new series! I’m sloooowly making progress!
Series Started Before 2013 –> Seriously Serious (7-12)
Series Started In 2013 –> Super Seriously Serious (13-18)
(I was just a wee bit preoccupied this week and have been neglecting my reader. I promise to make up for it with more linkage next week!)
- Katie talks about her bookish pet peeve of stereotypes in YA books.
- April talks about the pressures we all may face as book bloggers. I know I can relate to a few of these!
And other things …
- Goodreads was bought by Amazon? I’m not sure what this means for me as a user, but the article by Shelf Awareness is interesting.

good romance novels but not too embarrassing — So, something you can read openly on a train? Is that what you’re asking?
dex and perry sex in experiment in terror — Yes. That’s always a good thing.
i hate one hundred years of solitude — I join you in that hatred. Definitely not a favourite of mine.
why do people reread twilight? — I have no idea. I reread it and wasn’t impressed.
How was your week? Have you read anything good lately?
