Happy Friday! It has been a roller coaster of a week and while I’ve been reading loads, I didn’t manage to finish anything (I shall explain in a moment). Things might get a little erratic here on the blog as Scottish Fiance and I get all of the planning wrapped up for our wedding (just over four weeks to go!) and chase down RSVPs, but try not to miss me too much!
Christmas! Christmas! ChristmasChristmasChristmas! I'm heading home for Christmas tonight, can you tell? The week before the holidays always feels so incredibly slow and boring -- except for this year. Why is it so busy? Why am I running around frantically? I should be filling up on chocolate and holiday cheer!
One week until Christmas! ONE WEEK UNTIL CHRISTMAS! I feel like the holidays can’t come quickly enough. Also, how is it still so busy? It is truly a mystery. Despite my absolute love of the holidays, I feel like I haven’t been Christmassy enough this year. Perhaps that will change next week! Now on to this week in books!
I was thinking that I want to do more tags and what do I see? The 5 W's book tag on Shanah's blog! What great timing you have, friend.
I am not shy about shouting out my love of Emma Newman’s Planetfall -- it is easily one of the best books that I’ve read this year. I have been looking forward to reading After Atlas ever since I finished up Planetfall, but I just hadn’t found the time until this summer. After Atlas is not a direct sequel to Planetfall, rather it is a companion novel set in the same universe, but it did not disappoint.
Hi. This is a bit late. October was an absolutely crazy month, then NaNoWriMo took over my life in November. During these two months, I took a little bit of a step back from reading, blogging, videoing, Instagramming, everything. On the bright side, I did rediscover my burning love of Star Trek and started actually watching TV. Oh, and I actually wrote something for the first time in my life. Who would have thought?
Brandon Sanderson is an author I trust completely. I will buy every single one of his books because I know I will like them. When I heard that he was writing his very first science fiction novel, I was so incredibly excited. My expectations for this novel were sky high (heh) and I have to say that Spensa and the gang absolutely smashed those expectations.
