Uggggggghhhhhhh. My office had a massive leak earlier in the week from the ceiling. Everyone had to clear their desks and our office ceiling is still a disaster. It helped me evaluate some of the books I really “needed” and I got rid of a lot of stuff. I just have to tackle the knicknacks I keep on top of my desk but I’m waiting to do that after the office is more fixed and not waiting to be painted.

I also managed to acquire a fine assortment of injuries with a burn on my left hand, a cut on my finger, and a bruise on my leg from a drawer falling on it.

My mom and I have been moving a lot of furniture and generally cleaning out the apartment and it’s been very hot and tiring and I need a vacation.

I also got my first ever Uppercase Box this week and I love it and will be reviewing it soon!

Here’s my latest from Instagram:

I really thought I had this post scheduled for the weekend but I didn’t. The more you know.

Work didn’t have AC all last week and we are in the midst of dealing with a massive, nightmarish leak.

I spent most of the weekend moving furniture.

Week in Review: June 10

I worked really hard this weekend to do absolutely nothing. After a couple of busy weeks it was much needed! My main things were a trim for my hair and packing some things I’d been meaning to mail.

Here’s my latest from Instagram:

How fun is this package from @torteen for review copies of Roar by @coracarmack? The book's tag line is "in a land ruled by violent magical storms, power lies with those who control them." The book came with a Stormheart pendant too–a stone that Aurora hopes to steal for herself from a storm to gain powerful storm magic she needs to lead her people. I received a Skyfire Stormheart according to the handy guide included. Which Stormheart would you want?

Week in Review: June 3

This Week in Review post is kind of late because in addition to being on vacation for a lot of last week I was also busy at School Library Journal’s Day of Dialog and BookExpo. I might do recaps, I might not–we’ll see!

Since a lot of you were similarly busy with that or general Memorial Day relaxation, I thought a late post was okay anyway since it would remind all of us of some fun posts I shared last week.

You can also check out my Instagram for some photos of my new bookish acquisitions (and cute photos of me with Holly Black, and some of my friends I hung out with at Book Expo).

Pretty stoked about these ARCs and samplers from @fiercereads' BookExpo party! After chatting with Emmy Laybourne about Berserker it is at the top of my to read list. Also included: samplers of Renegades by Marissa Meyer, The Language of Thorns, Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi; Moxie by Jen Matthieu; You Bring the Distant Near by Mitali Perkins, Wild Beauty by Anna-Marie McLemore. Also: nail polish for The Lovely Reckless by Kami Garcia. The tote is so much fun it gets its own picture. I have to research permanent fabric markers and buy some to get it signed by some authors. #bookstagram #goodreads #instabook #instareads #bibliophile #books #reading #currentlyreading #amreading #bookworm #bookish #bookgram #booktography #bookblogging #bookblogger #bookphotography #books #bookexpo2017 #bookexpoamerica #bookexpo #moxiegirlsfightback #wildbeauty #youbringthedistantnear #berserker #renegades #childrenofbloodandbone #thelanguageofthorns #grishaverse #thelovelyreckless

Talking about one of my favorite 2017 reads today on the blog and interviewing the ever-delightful Susan Juby.

This week I’ve been buying things I was putting off (summer clothes that aren’t pilled and sad) and also some unexpected things (my glass water bottle shattered and I got a new lunch box). I’m planning to start saving more next month and have some printed savings plans to try out so this month has been about finishing up those last minute purchases and paying them off immediately.

Here’s the official first photo(s) of my haircut:

Week in Review: May 20

This week I (re)reviewed the entire Queen’s Thief series to celebrate the release of book five (Thick as Thieves) because why not. I also finished Vincent and Theo which was excellent.

I was not at my best this week. It was very hot and many things went wrong. Our stove broke and had to be replaced, we had to get a new microwave, lots of things had to be returned. BUT things are all fixed at this point and everything seems to be on a more even keel now.

I also went to a fun book event with Nicole.Estelle put it together in Stories BK with Mike Lowery and Tom Booth talking about their work as authors and illustrators. Tom and Mike were very funny and Stories is a super cute book store. Fun was had by all.

Oh and I cut my hair.

Week in Review: May 13

This week I set up a new printer (so much better than the old one which I hated). I worked four days, finished writing up a fun assignment from SLJ (more to come), and on Friday I went to HarperCollins HQ for their Fall 2017 preview (if you’re playing along at home I still owe the blog a recap of Macmillan’s and now this one).

After the preview I headed home for a delicious crepe lunch with Mom before a very long train ride uptown to the Met to see the Seurat Circus Sideshow exhibit and Age of Empires.
