A Day in the Life - March 13, 2015

a day in the life

Hey y’all!

It’s Grace here to tell y’all about what I’ve been up to in the past few weeks. It’s been about a month since I’ve done one of these, but for those of y’all who haven’t seen it before, A Day in the Life is a feature post I do occasionally to tell y’all about what’s going on with me, my reading,  and news in the publishing world! I'm actually getting Squeesome, the fabulous designer of my blog and graphics, to do a little graphic for this as well. Without further ado, here goes:

The Books:

10955447_659399644160616_716991006_nI’ve been in an insane reading slump lately. Luckily, Sinner by Maggie Stiefvater yanked me out of it recently and I managed to down a few more books in my precious days of spring break. Alas, I am only a quarter through For Whom the Bell Tolls for book club but I'm including it on the list because it otherwise looks a lil sparse. (So happy to be out of my reading slump for now, y'all. Not being able to read messes with me.)Even in Paradise by Chelsey Philpot | GoodreadsSinner by Maggie Stiefvater | GoodreadsFallen by Lauren Kate | GoodreadsFor Whom the Bell Tolls by Ernest Hemingway | Goodreads 

The Posts:

I wrote last week about being in a reading slump for the first time (10/10 do not recommend.) I gave y'all details about book club in February - and Hemingway for March. Before that, I wrote about finding my voice as a blogger (and how my writing side influences that.) I bundled up a few of my favorite rereads for February in what is quickly becoming one of my favorite features to write. Before that, I reviewed a lovely lovely lovely book that's sure to be in my top of the year.

The Life:

bostonskyIt's spring break, as I previously mentioned, which gives me a little time to breathe! This week is all about college visits and getting work done before lacrosse starts up again. We played a really difficult game on the Friday before break and we're prepping for another hard one this Tuesday!This Sunday-Wednesday, I was actually in Boston. It was my first time in the city (which I totally fell in love with) to check out a few of the schools in the area. Although when you think "Florida", you don't necessarily think "Southern", I'm a Southern girl born-and-raised so that was one of my first opportunities to look at Northern schools.I checked out Northeastern and Tufts. (We also went to Harvard but hey, that has absolutely no chance of happening.) I loved Boston. I loved its personality; I loved the gorgeous Trinity Church candlelight service I went to and the wonderful, sprawling bookstores. It's definitely a very real, very tangible possibility for college which is both exciting and scary!bostonlibrarySo we bookstore-hopped and college-searched and explored, and although I was bundled up in so many layers I could hardly breathe, it wasn't nearly as cold as I expected. Apparently, we caught the mild part of the year.If you're interested in seeing more photos, you can see my Boston pictures over at my Instagram!Second half of the week, I'm working at the Oxford Exchange, working on spring break homework, working on the blog. But I did manage to get sunburnt beyond belief at the pool today, so that's something.No news section today, because I'm gathering articles for a Grind post soon! But you'll see another A Day in the Life post soon because I'll definitely have to share a few pictures after prom, which is in late March this year.

Happy reading!
