Week in Review: April 21–Pokemon Go is consuming my life

missprintweekreviewThis week on the blog you can check out:

I was a ball of nerves this week. I was feeling pretty slammed between intern work and committee work and it was not a good time having to balance both with a lot of deadlines all at the same time. I’m feeling much better now and am looking forward to things settling down.

Last Sunday Nicole and I had a belated celebration for her birthday and it was awesome. We went to Milk and Cream Cereal Bar which was delicious (we both want to go back which says a lot!), then walked to the Strand. We did some window shopping and some shopping shopping. And I caught a ton of Mareeps in Pokemon Go which is one of my new favorite Pokemon. It was a big day all around.

Here are two of my favorite posts I shared on Instagram this week:

Starting this week with a surprise favorite that I still return to often: The Keeper of the Mist by Rachel Neumeier. 📚 Keri's main focus since her mother's death has been running the family bakery on her own. She doesn't have much time to think about her father, the Lord of Nimmira, who has never wasted a thought on Keri. Nor is she inclined to entertain predictions about which of her half-brothers will take up the title of Lord upon their father's death. 📚 When Nimmira's ancient and inscrutable magic chooses Keri as the unlikely heir her focus shifts abruptly from baking to overseeing all manner of details implicit to overseeing her small country as its new Lady. Caught between larger countries eager to conquer each other and absorb its resources, Nimmira has relied on its border mists and a strict policy of isolation for generations. Keri should be able to control and maintain the mists as the new Lady. Except they continue to fail after her ascension and no one knows why. 📚 Keri's Timekeeper is counting the seconds, minutes, and hours to something important. But he can't–or perhaps won't–explain what exactly that is or how Keri can prepare for it. Keri's best friend Tassel acclimates quickly to her role as Bookkeeper but even her magic can't help unravel some of Nimmira's deepest secrets. Then there's Cort, Keri's unlikely Doorkeeper. Cort is steadfast in his commitment to protecting and maintaining Nimmira's borders. But will he and Keri finally be able to see eye to eye as they try to restore the mist? 📚 Change is coming to Nimmira. Only time will tell if Keri and her friends will be ready to face it. 📚 #instabooks #amreading #instareads #bookgram #bookworm #bookblogging #bookblogger #bookstagrammer #bibliophile #booklove #bookphotography #instabook #reading #reader #booktography #bookstagram #igreads #booksofinstagram #goodreads #bookaholic #bookish #bookishfeature #bookstafeatures #bookstagramfeature #readersofinstagram #unitedbookstagram #fantasy #rachelneumeier #thekeeperofthemist

"Secrets are like bullets." 📚 Reece Murphy never wanted to become the notorious Rose Kid. But he never had a choice. 📚 Charlotte Vaughn hopes that following a lead on a big story will help jump start her career as a journalist and bring her one step closer toward self-sufficiency and thwarting her uncle’s efforts to steal her mother’s inheritance. 📚 Both Reece and Charlotte's plans are derailed when they cross paths on opposite sides of a botched train robbery. Charlotte could be Reece's chance for freedom while Reece offers Charlotte the story of a lifetime. Charlotte and Reece know better than to trust each other but they both hope that with a little luck and a lot of grit they can use each other to get what they need. 📚 Westerns are an inherently problematic genre but still count a few as favorites. Retribution is one such book filled with anti-heroes worth cheering on, evocative settings and loads of adventure. 📚 I was tagged by @cassieopiabooks and @deadtossedwaves to do the #top3fandomsmerch tag. (Tagging some friends and anyone else who wants to join!) 1. The Hunger Games 2. The Darkest Minds 3. The Raven Cycle 📚 #instabooks #amreading #instareads #bookgram #bookworm #bookblogging #bookblogger #bookstagrammer #bibliophile #booklove #bookphotography #instabook #reading #booktography #bookstagram #igreads #booksofinstagram #goodreads #bookaholic #bookish #bookishfeature #bookstafeatures #bookstagramfeature #readersofinstagram #unitedbookstagram #western #erinbowman #retributionrails #vengeanceroad
