Rewind & Review: February 10 - February 23

Hosted by Shae Has Left the Room
I was *thisclose* to not having a Rewind & Review this week since I had no time to write it and it was a CRAZY weekend. Absolutely ridiculous. But I was able to put it all together. All I needed was the Rocky theme song.

Books for Review:


Books I Bought: 

Number of Books I've Completed: 2...I think.

What I'm Reading Now/Next:
  • Fire by Kristin Cashore (still)

Previous Blog Posts:
  • I revealed to a a friend (*waves*) that I have a blog. She's now talking about starting a blog since she's thought about it before. 
  • I was accepted into my dream school! 
  • On Friday, I visited colleges. In one city, it rained so hard that the "puddles" in the street had currents. In another city (about 2 hours away from my house), it rained and our car broke down on a major road during rush hour. Awesome. After 5+ hours, we finally left and I didn't fall asleep in my own bed until 3am. THEN I travelled back up with my dad to get the piece of junk (our van). Fun stuff this weekend, you guys.
  • Emma offered to send me a signed copy of Better Off Friends after she goes to a signing! 
  • Lost my basketball game by 1 point, making us play a playoff game before State Championships. Oy vey.

Upcoming Blog Posts:
  • TBA (oops) 

It was an eventful, but not very productive two weeks for me so here's hoping the next two weeks are better! Happy reading!

    1. No I haven't! I'm hoping to soon though since the author will be at the local reading festival! Fingers crossed that I'll like it :)

  2. The Chapel Wars displays all of Lindsey Leavitt's signature awesomeness, and I hope you love it! :)

    It's great that you told your friend about your blog. It can be scary (I feel like in-person friends wouldn't understand), but I'm also slowly merging my blog life with my personal life. Is this friend's potential blog going to be a book blog? I definitely want to visit it either way.

    1. That is VERY relieving to hear :)

      It was definitely scary. I still haven't told my coaches, who are actually some of my closest friends. I always get nervous that they won't understand or if they think it's weird or whatnot. It is! She actually just commented below, but I don't think she's started it yet! I'll keep you posted :)

    2. Not RIGHT below, but she's the other Emily :)

  3. Congratulations on getting accepted to your dream school! I have no idea what school it is, but I'm seriously happy for you. I can relate to that feeling since, many moons ago (lol, that makes me sound old), I got accepted into my dream school (in the Philippines) as well!

    1. Thanks, Alexa <3 Haha, I feel like "many moons ago" is taking me to some Indian campfire or something. You did? That's great! I'm guessing you didn't go? What happened?
