Firstly, helloooo!! How’ve you all been?? It feels like I’ve been away from blogging for ages, when it’s only been a little over two weeks. I had an amazing time in Florida, and I wish I could say I returned home relaxed, refreshed and chilled out… but, erm, well… to put it bluntly, jet-lag’s a bitch! The drop in temperature is another shock: its 5˚C right now… and I was basking - or, more accurately, baking - in 32˚C a couple of days ago. I'm freezing in places I didn’t realise I could freeze! It’s so hard to get back to normal, too. I’m still in holiday-mode! I’ll hopefully have a proper post with all my holiday pics up during the week, or next weekend at the latest.
Oh! But I do have to mention one little thing! I just might have had lunch reservations here…
... at Be Our Guest Restaurant in Magic Kingdom! If you ever plan on going to Walt Disney World, I highly recommend it! The food was delicious, and the decor and atmosphere is PHENOMENAL! The lighting was a lot darker that I expected, though, and I’m a little disappointed with the pics I took inside the restaurant, but… that’s just an excuse to go back, right?!
Books I Read this Month
Books I Bought Recently
I did go a little bit mad buying books while I was in Florida. I don’t feel too guilty about it: any time I’m in the States I usually end up in a shopping mall, and they usually have a few bookshops… so I’d set aside some dollars as a precaution! The one I'm most anxious to read right now is Shutter by Courtney Alameda. I've heard lots of praise for it, and once I came across it in Barnes and Noble, I knew I'd have to buy it! I did buy quite a few others, and I'll get the rest of my pictures sorted for next weekend's wrap-up, promise!
When I came home, my pre-orders of A Court of Thorns and Roses and End of Days were waiting for me! I wasn’t expecting to get them so early, and nothing on this earth was going to keep me from starting End of Days straight away! I’m really tempted to re-read ACoTaR, and I’ll probably give in really soon. Plus, it’ll help with my re-read challenge!
Thank you so much St Martin’s Press for sending me Twist by Karen Akins! I read Loop last year, and I LOVED it, and I can’t wait to see what happens next!
On the Blog this Month
Unfortunately, I haven’t re-read any books so far. There’s still plenty of time, I won’t panic… yet!
I've read one more retelling since my last update: Cress by Marissa Meyer.
I'm really happy with the progress I've made with this challenge so far! I had a feeling I'd struggle with this one, so it's a really nice surprise to be doing pretty good. I've read three more 2015 releases since my last update: Dreamfire by Kit Alloway, The Infinite by Lori M. Lee, and City of Fae by Pippa DaCosta.
Hope you have a fab week, and happy reading!
