Weekly wrap-up: September 28 - October 4

This has been a challenging week. In addition to being sick, I'm extraordinarily stressed about work at the moment. Also a huge storm hit Dallas a couple days ago, and Roomie and I were without power for about 34 hours or so. First world problems, I know, considering some of the families in our own neighborhood have entire trees lying on their roofs. However, it's tough to be without electricity when both the neighbors across the street and the shopping plaza behind our house had power. Screw you, storm! All of this has left me in a fairly foul mood. Hoping your week was much better than mine!

Lailah (Styclar Saga #1) - Nikki Kelly: 3.5 stars. Really cool & unique origin story, but the character development isn't all the way there yet. Full review here.
For Real - Alison Cherry: 5 stars. Fun story with heartfelt sisterly-ness. A must-read for any reality tv lover, but also excellent for anyone who doesn't watch it! Full review closer to to pub date.

The 5th Wave (5th Wave #1) audiobook - Rick Yancey, Brandon Espinoza & Phoebe Strole: 5 stars. I really enjoyed the book, and the audio rendition was absolutely perfect! I will definitely be looking up Brandon and Phoebe's other work because they were phenomenal!
The Lonely Hearts Club (Lonely Hearts Club #1) - Elizabeth Eulberg: 5 stars. I loved this book, and when I needed a little bit of comfort this week, this book gave it to me. PLUS I've been wanting to reread it before We Can Work It Out is released.

Currently Reading:
Nothing, at the moment. I finished my current book and my current audio at the same time so it's time to find new ones. I think I'll be listening to Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld next.

New to my bookshelf this week:


"A Hard Day's Night" (Lonely Hearts Club #1.1) - Elizabeth Eulberg

Half Price Books:
I know you probably don't believe this, but I went to the huge HPB clearance sale in Dallas where there were like 6 rows of tables full of ya books.....and I didn't buy a single thing.
