August is over! Ack! I apologize for the lack of posting- school has decided that I would be lovely for eating and has decided to devour me whole, but first it is seasoning me with a bajillion million projects and tests. I don’t think I will end up tasting good.
(link to Goodreads)
Angelfall by Susan Ee ♥♥ I am disappointed. I WANTED TO LOVE THIS BOOK, truly I did. But it did nothing. 😥
The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken ♥♥♥ Eh. I didn’t understand half of the whole powers-thing. *shrug*
Les Miserables by Victor Hugo ♥♥♥♥♥ ALL THE STARS AND ALL THE HEARTS AND OMG I DID NOT EXPECT TO LOVE THIS SO MUCH.
I Am Princess X by Cherie Priest ♥♥♥♥ This was awesome. Princesses and webcomics and creepy dudes-wait, what?
Lumberjanes #1 by Noelle Stevenson, Grace Ellis, and Brook Allen ♥♥♥♥♥ Apparently there are 19 of these. HELP, Ms. Stevenson, your books are beautiful and I cannot spend all this money! 😐
Night of Cake and Puppets by Laini Taylor ♥♥♥♥♥ This was all the wonderness I expected and I loved it so. Zuzana is a beautiful tiny thing and she and Mik are adorable!
Tell Me Again How a Crush Should Feel by Sara Farizan ♥♥Terrible storyline in my opinion, but highlight for spoilers: Lisa and Leila were adorable, otherwise it would’ve just been one heart.
Free to Fall by Lauren Miller ♥♥♥♥♥ I loved this! It was a totally random library pick and I’m so glad I found it. I actually understood the science, too! 😉
Rump by Liesl Shurtliff ♥ Eh again. This month seems to be one of either ‘eh’ books or ‘omg I love you so much’ books.
I only read 9 books this month! ‘Tis terrible!
I’m not reading anything right now, but I feel the need for some rereads, and then I am also going to start Tell the Wolves I’m Home by Carol Rifka Brunt. Except it’s supposed to be sad, and right now I need happy. Any book recommendations?
I have finally found an idea for my NaNo novel this year, and it’s mutated into a slight Sleeping Beauty retelling? IDK. I’m letting it fun free for now.
The entire Les Miserables original musical soundtrack and the entire movie soundtrack *nodnod*.
I freaked out about the fact that school has started.
I participated in Bridget’s Music Monday for the first time!
I received the Blogger Recognition Award (thanks again!).
I discussed character biographies and making them seem real (also, Les Mis).
Michelle tagged me for the #WritersLife tag and it was sooo fun!
SO LITTLE POSTS, GUYS, I AM SORRY. EEP.
Um, school? Clubs? That’s really it. We’re starting a newsletter at my school and I’m soooo excited for it! Yay!
I also attended a good friend’s Bat Mitzvah, and I am so stinking proud of her. She made me cry, and it was very much worth it. There was also an awesome party afterwards with drums and fire men!
I attempted to take bookish photography for the bookstagram, and I still don’t understand how much/how/why to use hashtags. *sigh*
As you have now discerned, I read and watched Les Miserables. The amount of times I have listened to the soundtrack in a given day is probably astounding. 🙂
How was your august? Has school started for you? What exciting things have happened? Tell all, tell all!
