Okay, this was an awesome book haul week. Like, all of my library holds came in, which is great for the blog, but bad for my sixty page senior thesis due on Wednesday. Eeek! I just have to get to Wednesday, and then I can read all the things.

School Library


My TBR jar challenge for this month is to read a series finale. So, since I read The 100  by Kass Morgan in March, I picked up Day 21  and Homecoming  from my school library, which literally has every young adult book I could ever want.

Public Library


The library has been kind to me this week. Also, when I picked up X-Men, I stopped by the graphic novel section and saw Saga, Vol. 4.  I think you know what my most recent hold is. I think you know. But I have wanted to read X-Men comics for the longest time, but there are literally so many  that I googled where to start and this was the one that it gave me. So excited for April! It's going to be a good reading month. I can feel it.


'89 Walls  is set in 1989. It's a contemporary (can I say that since it's set in 1989? I'm still saying it.) romance following Quinn and Seth who are both finishing high school. The cover is entrancing. How could I not? 
Hailey on Booktube has already read 5 to 1  and has been raving about it. I was so happy to see it on NetGalley and even happier that I got it. The year is 2054, the ratio of males to females in India is 5:1, and women are of the highest commodity. Are you not in love? I'm in love.

Life Update

So I have been in absolute crackdown mode on my senior thesis. Currently 60 pages with a few more to tack on. Also, graduation and AP tests and finals and college and everything else are approaching like a freight train at 100 mph. However, I am almost finished with my thesis, and then all I will have left it to print off this monster and do a 20 minute presentation over it. It's all really terrifying. Hence the blog absence. Hence the reading slump.

  16. Yeah, I attend a Magnet school, and the library (mainly the librarians) are pretty awesome. Thanks for stopping by!

  17. Good luck on all of your school stuff! I've wanted to start the X-Men comics as well, but it's so hard to find where to start! I wish my library had graphic novels :D

  18. I would definitely recommend starting with the one I hauled: All-New X-Men. if you've seen the movies, then it is really easy to jump in.


    That is all.
