I’ve been working hard to get back into productive mode this week. I got a lot of homework and research done, which was exciting, but this led to headaches for several evenings which severely cut into my reading time D: It’s just no fair when I work hard all day looking forward to reading in the evening and then I can’t! I did go and see Gravity despite having a headache, and it was totally worth it ;-). Also, lots of great discussion posts around the sphere this week :D.
I started listening to Reboot this week on audiobook and I highly recommend it! Khristine Hvam is my favorite narrator, especially for young adult, and she does an excellent job with Reboot. While I’m starting to get into the romance aspects which are a little annoying, I’m enjoying Reboot’s combination of zombie and super-human tropes!
I’m trying hard to make progress on Cress between all the review books that need to be read and group reads! I love Cress so much, it’s just quite long and I feel guilty reading it when other things have obviously tighter deadlines! I’m also not letting Cress leave my apartment, which cuts in to my ability to make progress on it while traveling ;-).
I’ve just barely started Alienated since my book blogger group decided to start it this week. It’s cute and a fun spin on the alien story, but I’m not getting into it very easily yet. I think that’s just because of outside stresses though. Also, this cover is so horrendously white-washed…. The guy is described as being brown-skinned with the justification that the aliens have blended all the races so everyone is just mixed, NOT WHITE!
And in case you missed it, these were my posts this week:
