THIS WEEK IN REAL LIFE:

Found a house, yay! So, hopefully I should be all moved by this time next month. I have already packed all my books, so I will only be reading library and Kindle books till I have moved into the new house. This is a good thing as I have so many unread Kindle books.
Went and saw The Amazing Spiderman 2 and it was alright. I did enjoy it, it just didn't blow me away, I found the bad guys to be lacking in badness. And the mid-credits scene, what is that all about? I know both movie franchises are Marvel but unless they plan to crossover/merge in the future, I don't see the point.

NEXT WEEK ON MY BLOG:

It's Monday! What am I reading?
Top Ten Tuesday: Book Covers I'd Frame As Pieces of Art
Review: Cress by Marissa Meyer

NEXT WEEK IN REAL LIFE:

I am going to be meeting up with friends at the university library for a couple study sessions and we also plan on going to see Divergent and/or maybe Transcendence. Most of next week will be all about studying, fun!

How was your week?
Oh, and May the Fourth be with you.

    1. The Assassin's Blade is a lovely looking book and if you have the other 2 books, it would look nice next to them on your shelf.

      Happy reading to you!

  5. I hope you enjoy On the Island. When it came out, I had the opportunity to see Tracy speak at our local Barnes & Noble. It was really cool and now I have a signed copy of the book.

  8. Happy Star Wars day! Hope you like Divergent if you see it, thought it was pretty good. Rogues in on my radar too, looks like a good anthology. Hope your reading is good this week. :)

    1. Haha thanks Greg.

      I saw and loved Divergent already but my friend hasn't, she doesn't even know it's a book, so it will be interesting to see her reaction to it.

      Have a great reading week.
