Blog Happenings (65)

Well hello everyone! Happy Saturday!!

Hallowed by Cynthia Hand-This one was some mixed reviews but I'm just loving it! I'm on page 160 something but it is just so sad already! 

Scarlet by A.C. Gaughen-Loved how Robin Hood was incorporated!
Ravenstoke by August Blythe-Such a fun read!


Gimme a Call by Sarah Mlynowski
 The Butterfly Clues by Kate Ellison

I can't believe it's already February! January moved so fast and so did all the releases that came out. Now February has some great new releases! I'm SO excited. 

One of my favorite mystery series is going to have a new book! 
The Traitor in the Tunnel by Y.S. Lee comes out on the 28! Same day as Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver. I've heard that both of these are amazing books. 

Has anyone every read anything by John Steinbeck? I have a new English Class this semester and we read an excerpt from his memoir: Travels with Charley. In the part that we read he was in a room where he observed all the things the previous occupant have left behind. And for a writing assignment? We have to do the same thing with items like a luggage tag, a broken pen, a crossword puzzle, etc. It sounds like fun and a little challenging, too. Hopefully I can pull off something decent! 

Have a great weekend everyone! I hope to see everyone tomorrow with and IMM but I haven't got any books this week!

I might have to check out The Agency--I saw it on Goodreads and was intrigued but got a bit swamped.

And your Steinbeck reading assignment sounds interesting! I've read a couple of his--not as dry as some of the older writers. Haven't read Travels with Charley but I did hear it was good.

I agree Hallowed was sad...kinda throughout the whole book too. It was interesting to learn more about Angels and Clara.
