Happy Saturday/Sunday! The weekend is finally here, hooray. This week was AWESOME. First off, I got a full-time job. It will cut back on my reading, but whatever, it’s a job! Secondly, if you didn’t see the excitement all over my twitter on Thursday…

…my not-so-little-anymore brother got into Brown! As in, Brown University, as in the Ivy League. I’m so ridiculously proud of him. I was taking a nap because I had the worst migraine in the history of migraines. I woke up to him smacking me and screaming. I panicked, thinking the house was on fire or something, because why else would he be doing that? I’m an angry person when I get woken up, especially that way. Everyone knows that. When I finally understood that he was screaming because he got into Brown, I was so excited for him. He’s worked crazy hard. He’s been president of National Honor Society for the past two years, volunteers at a crap ton of events, was on the cross country track team, works 5 days a week at a chain pizza place, and STILL manages to keep a 4.0. If anyone deserves this, he does. He also got an almost full scholarship. Go little brother!!!!

Okay, so now on to blog stuff.

THIS WEEK ON THE BLOG :

Review of Relativity by Cristin Bishara – This one wasn’t a favorite for me.

  3. Loved These Broken Stars hope you like it.

  4. Congrats to his acceptance! I’m actually a freshman at Johns Hopkins (regular decision though), so I know the feeling. Quite exciting!

    I really enjoyed the Abandon series – but not Underworld. Abandon and Awaken, but not so much Underworld. I loved These Broken Stars though!

    Have a fabulous week!

    Check out my STS post!

    • Oh, awesome! My cousin actually just graduated Johns Hopkins earlier this year. He loved it there.

      I’ve actually tried to read Abandon before, and couldn’t get through it. So I’m hoping I enjoy it more this time. Fingers crossed!

  5. You’ve got a lot of good things here. One of my favorite reads for 2013 is These Broken Stars. And I am also planning to start Patrick Ness’ Chaos Walking Trilogy.

    Have fun reading.
