Wrap Up (The One Where I Finally Think I Understand Twitter)

And by finally understand twitter I mean that it's not crazy overwhelming anymore and has become just another part of my day.  Which is actually a pretty big relief!  I've been using Twitter for over a year (about as long as I've been blogging) and while it was always nice, it wasn't really a place to connect with people until recently.  I can't say what triggered the shift, but it's pretty great!

Other than that, my week has been pretty boring.  I managed to get a lot of reading done (which was unbelievably nice) and I only have 11 days of school left (and summer can't come soon enough).  I'm planning to apply for a job at my local Barnes and Noble, so fingers crossed.  If that doesn't work out, theres a pizza place that's always hiring.

Finished This Week
The Raven Boys- it was a reread and so much better than I remembered

Currently Reading
The Crown's Game- it was one of my most anticipated, but it's a little disappointing so far; I'm really enjoying taking part of Brittany's Book Rambles Twitter Chat/Discussion Group Thingy, though! (go team Nikolai!)
The Dream Thieves- another reread but I had to pick it up immediately after finishing Raven Boys
Even if the Sky Falls- still not sure how I feel about this one; it's not bad but it's also not what I expected
Last Call at the Nightshade Lounge- I've been reading it slowly (not on purpose) but don't dislike it
Game of Thrones- my reread continues (and I'm reminded of how much Ned Stark frustrates me!)

Last Week

Next Week
Monday-- Gwen Cole Interview (!!!)
Tuesday-- ACOMAF Review (Spoiler Free)

That's it for me this week!  Next week is pretty filled with stuff, but stuff I am so, so, so excited for!  I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend; let me know what you're currently reading in the comments!


  1. It’s great that you understand Twitter. I’m still working on it. :)

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

    1. It's a surprisingly hard platform to grasp! Best of luck on figuring it out :) Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Ooo I can't wait to see your ACOMAF reviews. I'm gonna be typing up a discussion about Tamlin once I reread ACOTAR. Peope are gonna be getting so sick of ACOMAF stuff but who cares?!

    1. They were so hard to write without just screaming my thoughts in all caps. I'm looking forward to reading your discussion on Tamlin for sure- probably the most controversial part of the book from what I've been hearing. You're right- who cares if everyone's sick of ACOMAF because I'm certainly not sick of it!

  3. I've been using Twitter since 2009 - which makes no sense to think that it's been that long. Glad you're getting it worked out! :)

    1. Sometimes I think 2006 was yesterday and then I remember it was ten years ago... *scratches head* where does all the time go? Thank you!

  4. Twitter is still foreign land to me though that has more to do with the fact that I don't use it often enough. I'm reading the Raven Cycle this week too! I'm on Blue Lily, Lily Blue and I'm loving the books. I don't know how you're reading five books at once, I admire your skills.

    1. One would think it's an easy platform but it's rather complicated! Yah, I started really using it and suddenly it opened up for me and now I rather enjoyed it. Normally I can't read this many books at once, but I just kept getting excited over books and couldn't force myself to wait and finish one before picking up another. Thanks for stopping by!


Thank you so much for commenting! I love to hear from you and try to respond to comments once or twice a week. Thank you for your patience :)
