I feel like every time I write one of these how’s my life going updates, I sound so whiny and busy. Fact of the matter is that I AM busy and I do feel sort of whiny. The other dayI took the GRE and while I didn’t do quite as great as I had hoped, I still did fine and I beat my boyfriend’s score. Plus, the score is what I need to get into one of my top grad schools which is really all that matters. Hooray for taking steps in the direction of a career I actually want. Anyways! These were great weeks for new books.

In case you skipped it or missed it, here’s a recap of what we’ve posted here like 3 weeks ago because I am way too lazy to recap again:
- Emily Murdoch stopped by for the If You Find Me blog tour and did a lovely guest post about Poison by Bridget Zinn.
- Speaking of which, I absolutely loved If You Find Me, so you can read why it’s wonderful here.
- So, I listened to The Mark Of Athena by Rick Riordan and loved it so much, I needed this cat GIF to sum up my feels.
- I need to stop judging books by their covers, cuz it turns out I really enjoyed Unraveling by Elizabeth Norris.
- This week’s TTT was about books you always recommend, so I took it and focused it on historical fiction.
- Make it rain scientology books. But for serious, I loved writing this review of Beyond Belief by Jenna Miscavige Hill.
- Allison reviews Sexy Feminism and finds it lacking.
- In which I read Poison by Bridget Zinn and LOVE IT SO HARD OMG.
