My overwhelming life has taken over

Alright world, as you may or may not know I'm in grad school (possibly the biggest mistake of my life. jk.) I'm in the end of this semester with assignments all over the place and unlike most of you seasoned blogger out there, I haven't quite gotten around to pre-scheduling posts and having backups and the like. So as much as I feel like I've been getting the hang of the blogging as the weeks go by, I need a break. My mind can't take all the homework assignment and books I have to read for that, the group projects, trying to read books that I love so I can blog about them, and working full time. It's just not going to happen because sadly I'm not super girl. However, I'll try to use this time to stock up on posts and all that good fun stuff so that the next time I need to back off for school, I can have things on reserve!!

I'm not sure how many people actually read my posts, but don't give up on me. I just need to finish this semester (sometimes mid May) and I'll be back with backup posts so I can stay consistent!!

Farewell for now, although I'll still creep around reading other posts when I can ;-)

Making up For Monday #3

Making Up for Monday is a weekly meme hosted by An Avid Reader, A Wannabe Writer

This weeks question: Do you like to eat or drink anything while reading? If so, what?

I'm pretty classic. I'm a tea drinker when reading my book. I've also been known to eat some popcorn because if movies deserve popcorn then books do too.

"Waiting On" Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine.

"Emma Putnam is dead, and it's all Sara Wharton's fault.

At least, that's what everyone seems to think. Sara, along with her best friend and three other classmates, has been criminally charged for the bullying and harassment that led to Emma's shocking suicide. Now Sara is the one who's ostracized, already guilty according to her peers, the community, and the media.

During the summer before her senior year, in between meetings with lawyers and a court-recommended therapist, Sara is forced to reflect on the events that brought her to this moment—and ultimately consider her role in an undeniable tragedy. And she'll have to find a way to move forward, even when it feels like her own life is over.

In this powerful debut novel inspired by real-life events, Amanda Maciel weaves a narrative of high school life as complex and heartbreaking as it is familiar: a story of everyday jealousies and resentments, misunderstandings and desires. Tease is a thought-provoking must-read that will haunt readers long after the last page."
As sad as this book is probably going to be I really want to read it.
Release date: April 29, 2014

My Teaser
"All I was going to do was show up on his doorstep and ask what the hell was up. It wasn't like I wanted another date."
Pg.16 Cathy's Book by Jordan Weisman, Sean Stewart, & Cathy Brigg

I have to read this book for my "Youth Literature in the Digital Age" class. The class is pretty cool, if not a lot of work. I'm still in the beginning of the book, and so far it's okay. I feel like it's taking me a million years to read it though because of all the extra words and doodles along the edges of the pages. Granted, that's the point of the book, but it's still distracting.
