My Week in the Books {6}
Posted January 31, 2017 / 1 Comment

What Happened: First it was a 3 day school week! And somehow it didn’t feel any shorter. That is just the nature of my job, I suppose. Always more things to do than hours in the day. But that was okay, because when Friday rolled it was time for ALA. ALA! It was like living in a fangirl library bubble! It was so fantastically awesome (and much more relaxed than summer conference). I GOT TO […]

Posted January 16, 2017 / 1 Comment

What I’m Watching is feature where I spotlight what I have been watching recently. Whether it be Movies, Television, or Documentaries, this is a space where I will feature what I have become obsessed with or what I just didn’t like at all!

This is an attempt to get some posting continuity on this blog again. I feel like this is a type of post I can commit to on a weekly or bi-weekly schedule and casually share about my bookish life. This was inspired by That Librarian Lady Laura and by the book blog weekly round-up memes The Sunday Post & It’s Monday: What Are You Reading? I am also hoping to reconnect with other bookish people.

  I was initially drawn to this book by the title and cover alone–how intriguing of a premise! I picked up an ARC at ALA this summer (even though the title was already published) because this book was on my radar for a potential school library purchase. I finally got around to reading it this month. Overall, I liked it. This was a book that focuses a lot more on character development (which I always […]

Why I Chose Citizen as My First Read of 2017

Why I Chose Citizen as My First Read of 2017
Posted January 8, 2017 / 2 Comments

Before I left school for Christmas break, I perused my school library shelves for a couple of books I wanted to take home with me to read. One of them was Citizen. For most of the break, these books just sat in a pile on my kitchen table because my holiday weeks were too busy to sit down and read. I finally found a day to dedicate to reading (New Year’s Eve), so I was […]
