So much to talk about! Such a busy week filled with the good and the bad. Most of the bad took place in the political and judicial realms. I won’t go into these things, but they made me very sad. Also, Cory Monteith’s death is tragic. I am so sorry for the pain his parents and loved ones are going through and the hole in their hearts that will never be full again.
Personally, my week was filled with the good. Work went smoothly, jury duty was over quickly, and much fun was had. Friday some friends and I went to dinner at The One Sushi + which is a great little Asian Fusion restaurant near our house. They serve Taiwanese fried rice like Jimmy makes with Taiwanese sausage that makes all the difference. Then we went to see Pacific Rim which was cheesy, geeky awesomesauce. Saturday was relaxed and filled with books. Because as the title suggests I finally got a library card!!! Just another way to feed my obsession. At least this one is easy on the wallet.
This week the booktube community is participating in a BookTube-A-Thon. See below my kickoff video and all the lovelies I plan to read this week. I’m sort of cheating since I’ve been reading Lolita and Casino Royale all weekend. I’ve also added T.C. Boyle’s Tooth & Claw short story collection to my reading list since I picked it up at the library. As for this week’s reviews, you can look forward to my thoughts on Where’d You Go Bernadette and American Born Chinese.
And one more thing:
I love that J.K. Rowling was able to publish something secretly. And yes, I ordered it immediately. Because I am a sucker for all the things Rowling. Except for A Casual Vacancy which I haven’t read, nor do I own.
How was your week? Are you excited for the new Rowling novel? Checked out anything amazing from your library recently?
