After Bout of Books last week, I took things a little easier this week. I read two and a half books, pretty much my usual amount. I had mixed results: one I loved, one I liked and one I didn't like at all. The one I loved was Little Beach Street Bakery by Jenny Colgan. My review will be up on the blog at some stage next week, so expect a little gushing! I’ve been working on a couple of cosmetic changes to my blog. I don’t have much design experience to draw from, but it’s kind of fun playing around with a few things I like the look of.
In non-book related news, this week was pretty much dominated with the Champions League final. It’s no secret I love football, so this is one match I always like watching. It’s pretty much equivalent of the Superbowl for European football. Congrats to Real Madrid, but… hey, I wish my team was there ;)

Books I read this past week
They go in order: The one I loved; the one I liked and the one I didn't like (and won't be reviewing.)
I've just started The Lost Girl by Sangu Mandanna, and I am loving it so far. I really want to read both Hex Hall and Matched and I keep overlooking them, so hopefully by including them here, it'll make me commit to reading them next!
Posts I loved
The Notebook Sisters: Negative Reviews: I ask the Publicists . I loved this post, and it's great to hear what the publishers opinions are.
Parajunkee: Building Confidence as a Blogger I definitely get insecure about blogging. I know I don't have a great design and it's something that plays on my mind. It's nice to see what others think and that we all go through similar feelings.
Books. Blog. Bake. Gendered Reading & Growing Up. Definitely read this if you haven't. It's amazing how unconsciously society influences our opinions.
Icy Cold Reads: Investigated - Is YA mostly geared toward females? This ties in with the above post too.
