This week was a busy one for me, with Thanksgiving and term papers – I have a week left in my current class, so everything is due. So I didn’t get to much reading done, but that’s okay.
The only book I finished this week is Saga Vol. 1 by Brian K. Vaughn and Fiona Staple. And I absolutely loved it! I’ve heard so many people rave about it, and it definitely lives up to the hype, in my opinion. I can’t wait to move on to Vol. 2 soon!
I think I’ve hit a bit of a reading slump, perhaps because of the holiday. But I just haven’t been feeling anything I’ve been reading – though I have been slowly working my way through Alias Hook by Lisa Jensen and Through the Narrows by Nathanael Green and Evan Ronan. I think I might just put off Alias Hook for a while, because I think I like it, but I can’t get into it at the moment.
This week, I did haul some books. Because, you know: Black Friday. I have no self control when it comes to discounted books. I did buy two books before Black Friday: Saga Vol. 1 by Brain K. Vaughn and The Highly Sensitive Person by Elaine K. Aron. And I got an ARC from NetGalley this week: The Bookseller by C. Robert Cales. And then I took advantage of Book Outlet’s Black Friday sale, and bought: Horns by Joe Hill; A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki; Jackie as Editor: The Literary Life of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis by Greg Lawrence; Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson; Bansky: The Man Behind the Wall by Will Ellsworth-Jones; Love, Fortunes, and Other Disasters by Kimberly Karalius; Sway by Kat Spears; Les Miserables by Victor Hugo; Magnolia by Kristi Cook; Yes Please by Amy Poehler; and Jane Austen: Her Life, Her Times, Her Novels by Janet Todd. And since I loved Saga Vol. 1 so much, I also bought Vol. 2 & 3 on Amazon on Friday (I just threw them in with my sister’s Christmas present).
I hope you all have a lovely weekend! I’m off to cram in a week’s worth of homework in two days, because I haven’t started anything yet (oops!).
