Weekly Round Up (04.15.12)
I try not to do one of these posts if I haven’t posted any other bookish content on the blog in the last week… but I have many new books I want to share! So, I’m just gonna do one anyway :)
EDIT: Also, there are still a couple days left in my Spring Cleaning Giveaway! Closes Wednesday night.
These were my 5 most listened to tunes from the last week, according to last.fm:
I’ll be perfectly honest, the Morgan Page is an artist I wouldn’t know anything about if it hadn’t been for work. But I really truly love the new album and have been listening to it nearly obsessively.
I picked up two books, which I’m saving for the 24hr Readathon next weekend:
Scott Pilgrim’s Precious Little Life by Bryan Lee O’Malley (I got this for the last readathon, but I didn’t get around to it that day. My plan for this readathon is to read my own books, but I’m going to need something like this for the late hours when my eyes are all Agh! No more words!)
What You Wish For: Stories & Poems for Darfur (I had never even heard of this YA anthology before stumbling across it at the library, but it sounds really great. Meg Cabot, John Green, Ann M. Martin and RL Stine in the same book? Yes please!)
I had my birthday this past week, which means SHINY NEW BOOKS.
Personal Library Kit
Austen quote candle
The Gift Card Purchases are books I’ve already read and loved, and I cannot express just how excited I am to finally own the Chaos Walking trilogy. It’s taking all I have not to drop everything else I’m reading and re-read those suckers. And those library kits? I actually got two of them, one from my husband and one from my wonderful book club, so I am all set to lend out soooo many books!
“It’s Monday What Are You Reading” is a weekly event hosted by Sheila that lets you share books you’ve read over the past week and books you have coming up.
Perfect by Sara Shepard
Anne of Green Gables by LM Montgomery
House of Mirth by Edith Wharton
Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta
Up Next: No idea, just going to focus on getting those three finished.
What are you reading and listening to? Did any new books find their way into your possession?
