Weekly Recap: 12/3 - 12/9

AWAY FROM THE BLOG

This week has been super busy. I've worked a lot and didn't really have time to do too much. We did some shopping on Friday night after I got off work. We got some Christmas presents and we also discovered this amazing store called Ollie's. They have so many cheap books. You'll see that down below. 

We went to Lights of Lakeland last night. Basically, it's Christmas land. It was so unbelievably crowded. We didn't stay too long but we did have fun. Other than that, we didn't really do too much. I totally ate a shit ton of Taco Bell last night too. No regrets.

NEW BOOKS THIS WEEK

I was naughty with getting books this week. But, they were so cheap, I had to. Super cheap. A Million Junes: $1.99. R.I.P Eliza Hart: $3.99. Jane Unlimited: $1.99. Warcross: $1.99. It was an amazing haul this week. Didn't spend more than $20!

Book Blogger Insider Tag:

Hey guys, I'm coming at you today with a fun little book tag. I'm trying to do at least one random blog post a week that's not a book review or haul or anything like that. I didn't particularly want to do the Top Ten Tuesday topic for the week soooo I'm bringing you a tag.

I'm trying to read as much as I can this month. I've already finished two books and I'm working on my third. With that being said, I'm going to hurry up and do this tag and get to reading.

I have done this post in the past but I decided to do it again. Fight me.

Weekly Recap: 11/26 - 12/2


AWAY FROM THE BLOG


It's finally December! The best month of the year. I'm looking forward to so many thing this month and I can't wait to share them with all of you. As for last week, I didn't do too much. I worked late a lot this week and it's hard to go out and get anything done when I have to work late. 

As you can see, I've made changes to my blog... again. That was my main focus for this week. I wanted everything to look clean and simple. I didn't want to do the crazy filters on my photos anymore. I'm really liking the white minimal look. What do you guys think?

NEW BOOKS THIS WEEK


This is yet another Goodreads giveaway I won. I've been doing pretty good with luck with Goodreads this last part of the year. I actually have another win on the way!


THIS WEEK I READ

I didn't get a lot of reading done this week. I only finished one book, unfortunately. ADSOM was a pretty good book. I didn't fall in love with it like everyone else, though.

November Reading Wrap Up:

This was a pretty decent reading month for me. I read my first graphic novel, Speak. I was surprised with how quick I read it. Less than four hours! I also read the behemoth, Kingdom of Ash. BOY, I never thought I was going to finish that thing.

I ended up finishing the month with some contemporaries. Honestly, after KoA, I didn't want to jump back into a fantasy right after I just finished this amazing series.

As you can also see throughout this month, I've had a lot of changes done to everything. I've changed my photos. A lot. I've changed my theme. A lot. I'm having a crisis if you couldn't tell.

November 2018 Book Haul:

This month was a good book buying month. I spent a little more than I probably should have. That's okay. It's good to splurge every now and then.

As you can see, I went through many crises with my photos. I still don't know how I'm going to take them. But we'll see I guess.

Review: A Darker Shade Of Magic by V.E. Schwab

Book 55/50
Title: A Darker Shade Of Magic
Author: V.E. Schwab
Released: February 24th, 2015
Genre(s): Fantasy
Page Count: 398
Purchase: Amazon - Kindle - Audiobook

Synopsis: 
Kell is one of the last Antari—magicians with a rare, coveted ability to travel between parallel Londons; Red, Grey, White, and, once upon a time, Black.

Kell was raised in Arnes—Red London—and officially serves the Maresh Empire as an ambassador, traveling between the frequent bloody regime changes in White London and the court of George III in the dullest of Londons, the one without any magic left to see.

Unofficially, Kell is a smuggler, servicing people willing to pay for even the smallest glimpses of a world they'll never see. It's a defiant hobby with dangerous consequences, which Kell is now seeing firsthand.

After an exchange goes awry, Kell escapes to Grey London and runs into Delilah Bard, a cut-purse with lofty aspirations. She first robs him, then saves him from a deadly enemy, and finally forces Kell to spirit her to another world for a proper adventure.

Now perilous magic is afoot, and treachery lurks at every turn. To save all of the worlds, they'll first need to stay alive.
