Weekly wrap-up: December 22-28

I hope all of you had a fantastic Christmas week. I got a lot of reading done in the first half, but I had to work all the second half, which was utterly exhausting. You guys remember how stressed I was over the summer? Yeah, I'm doing that exact job again over the holidays. Also, I contracted the plague because of my close proximity to children who touch everything at my place of employment with their adorable but grubby little hands. However, I still had a lovely week in which I learned that I will 100% be attending the TLA 2014 conference, which was my big Christmas present. Did you get any new books this week? Or have big bookish news? Let me know in the comments!

Misbehaving (Sea Breeze #6) - Abbi Glines: 3 stars. After the disaster that was Simple Perfection, I really didn't think I'd be giving Abbi's books another go. However, I'm glad I did. This was a fun little romance. It IS pretty derivative, but then, Abbi's books do have a formula that seems to be working for her. It is what it is. Those of us who read romance don't always need the most original book anyway.
Infinite - Jodi Meadows: 5 stars. This is totally bittersweet for me. I LOVE this book, but I'm really sad that Newsoul is over. Also, this installment is one big roller coaster; my emotions were all over the place! Basically, you need to read it as soon as possible.
