In My Mailbox - May 22, 2016
Hey y'all!It's my second day of summer, and I'm here to share a few of my latest book acquisitions. It's been a long haul, but high school's finally over (and I'm pretty conflicted about it.)I'm sure that I'll have some more book picks today or tomorrow, because my parents shamelessly bribed me using a trip to Barnes & Noble that I haven't taken advantage of yet.Before I jump right into sharing my book haul, I'd also like to say that I just registered for ALA Annual in Orlando (a book conference in June) and would love to know who else I'll be seeing there! Who all's going? I'm also headed to Firefly Music Festival in Delaware a few days before ALA, so it should be quite the week.Without further ado, here's what I got this week:
It was "dead week" at school for the seniors, meaning that we were stuck in class but had already taken our AP exams. Given that my schedule is entirely made up of my seven APs, I had absolutely nothing to do but read. It was lovely actually, because I've been in a reading slump for most of the spring, and the momentum got me out of it. I ended up reading the entire Winner's Trilogy (which I HIGHLY recommend!) as well as rereading Amy Plum's Revenants series. I used to own the first book as an ARC, but somebody borrowed it and never gave it back.
So it was a good book week for me. And this week is sure to be as well, because I'm headed to the beach on Wednesday after a Barnes & Noble trip!
