This week I didn't get anything from the library. YEAH PARTY! If you wonder why I say this well read about when all the books come into the library at once. I did get though Cinder and Scarlet by Marissa Meyer from the lovely ladies at My Shelf Confessions. I also won another book from their Wicked Readathon that I'll post about soon. Thanks guys! I am currently reading the Princess Bride for my bookclub so be on the lookout for that review to come.
What's happening in your world???
Oh nice! Couldn't get into Cinder myself, but glad you won yourself a set of the books! And Oooh The Princess Bride! Loved that one! Granted I grew up on the movie and didn't read the book until middle school age likely. Then when we watched the movie in high school, I totally answered the question sheet before the movie even got started!ReplyDelete
Pretty much the same thing again in college when it popped up in a course I took! Hope you're enjoying it and that you enjoy your new reads! Congrats on the wins too!
My STS will be up tomorrow, so be sure to stop by then!
Have a GREAT day!
Old Follower :)
I love The Princess Bride! The book and the movie are both so great.ReplyDelete
This is the first time I am reading The Princess Bride. I have seen the movie many times... such a great cult classic.ReplyDelete
I am really enjoying the book so far. I am surprised though at how it's written. I didn't expect it at all and the introductions really confused me but once I started reading then I understood.ReplyDelete
Yay I absolutely LOVE Cinder and Scarlet, one of my favourites ever! I hope you get to read Cress soon, it really is amazing.ReplyDelete
Here's my STS this week.
Oh the brilliance of Cinder and Scarlet. (Psst! You're probably going to want Cress on hand XD). I love Atlantis...such fond memories. And I think I saw that app mentioned on the news. I think my brain would explode.ReplyDelete
Lol - oh, that crazy Jeff. That was funny. Yay for winning books. I loved Cinder and Scarlet, but still need to read Cress.ReplyDelete
That Jeff Gordon video is hilarious. I laughed when the guy said "I didn't do anything. Let me out!" Too funny.ReplyDelete
Enjoy the Princess Bride. Love the movie, never read the book...
I can't wait to get started on those books. Plus my book club is reading Cinder for April so it was perfect timing that I won it!ReplyDelete
That app is crazy. I went to the website and read ...and yes I did read super dooper fast. But I don't really know.. was I actually taking in what I was reading???? I suppose though if you need to read something for like class or something for a deadline this would be perfect!ReplyDelete
Jeff Gordon is hilarious! The video he did like this last NASCAR season was funny too. Though if I remember correctly it was set up so this one probably was too. Still fun!ReplyDelete
LOL... It is so funny how the guys is kicking everything. Just hilarious. I think I might watch it again right now before I go to bed!ReplyDelete
I didn't realize Bloggiesta was happening again so soon! I can't wait. :)ReplyDelete
I know... and this time it's the BIG one!ReplyDelete
I hope you enjoy Cinder, I loved it! I haven't read Scarlet and Cress yet but I'm going to binge read them together soon.ReplyDelete
I loved that Parajunee article about colour, very handy to refer to in the future.
I love Cinder & Scarlet, such a fun series!ReplyDelete
And I would love to see your nail art, and how awesome that your husband helped you out!
Ohhhhh I hope you love The Lunar Chronicles! It sounds like you've had a busy week this week too. I personally loveeed the movie Atlantis. I remember getting a McDonalds toy of the characters when I was younger and absolutely cherishing them lol! :)ReplyDelete
My Showcase Sunday :)
Oh, Bloggiesta - must sign up! That 'Speed-reading app' was infringing, but TBH, I don't think it would work for me. One of my Uni lecturers, his wife was a literature professor and she had mastered speed reading. Can't exactly remember, but I think you scan only one half of the page (image were to draw a vertical line in the middle of the book page and scan only the right hand side of that page). No, I think I would like to enjoy the walk and not just the final destination (meaning the finish).ReplyDelete
Have a great week and Happy Reading!
My Sunday post is here
oh Cinder and Scarlet! Do hope you enjoy! hehReplyDelete
The new app seems very.. interesting o.0 77 min? wish I could read that fast lol going to have to check out what it is.
I gave in and started the audio of Cress this morning. :) I just had too. Enjoy your week.ReplyDelete
Jenea @ Books Live Forever's Sunday Post
I'm very curious about Cinder and Scarlet...hope you enjoyed them. I'm also looking forward to the next Bloggiesta.ReplyDelete
MY WEEKLY SUNDAY/MONDAY UPDATES
I'll have to check out Parajunkies colors post. I'm not ready to change my blog yet, but it may be soon. lol And I really need to read 20,000 Leagues! I can't believe I haven't yet! O.OReplyDelete
Oh, I loved The Princess Bride, both the book AND the movie. I found a new edition of the book at Barnes & Noble with high quality paper and illustrations.ReplyDelete
It takes some getting used to, but I just love Goldman's humor throughout.ReplyDelete
The Princess Bride is fantastic! I love the book and the movie equally. I hope you love it!ReplyDelete
I've read so much good buzz about Meyer's novels. I need to read them soon.
Stopping by from The Sunday Post. New Bloglovin' and Twitter follower.

I love winning books! Which reminds me, I still have to revisit scarlet so I can read Cress. Congrats on your wins!ReplyDelete
Yea... I have been on the hunt for a new blog look and that was very helpful. I am also painting my guest bedroom and I have NO idea what to paint it. Picking colors can be the worst! It's like so mych pressure.ReplyDelete
I kind of forced him.. I mean.. how was I supposed to sprinkle the glitter on my right hand?? :)ReplyDelete
I love the old school McDonald Disney toys. They were always sooo fun. I remember my sister and I would fight over the Oliver and Company ones.ReplyDelete
I have to agree. I too prefer to just read a book at my pace. I think this is why I don't really like audio books either. I want to hear the book in my voice and read it at my pace.ReplyDelete
It did blow my mind though that people might actually use this app!
I have seen a few people starting Cress this week.. hopefully that will be me soon!ReplyDelete
Bloggiesta! I have already been thinking about what I need to do around the blog.ReplyDelete
I would love to read Princess Bride with illustrations. I'll probably be able to finish the book tonight and I love it so far.ReplyDelete
I can't wait to re-watch the movie after I read the book (Princess Bride). It's been a while since I've seen the movie which I am glad so the book has a few surprises in it.ReplyDelete
The color post is really interesting. I didn't really have to worry much about the colors in this template since it was already made. But I have visited a few blogs where I was like what is going on????ReplyDelete
What did you think??? The text goes by super fast. I don't even know if I could read like that! I just want to start Cinder right now but I have a couple books to read first.ReplyDelete
Ooo book pretties. I haven't read those but I love the cover for Cinder.ReplyDelete
I love fairytale retellings so I can't wait to get started on Cinder!ReplyDelete
Oh I love The Princess Bride, it's one of my favorites. I also adore the Lunar Chronicles series. Enjoy! My STSReplyDelete
Infringing? Arrrgghh Auto-correct. Intruiging! but I guess you figured that. :)ReplyDelete
Thanks so much for the mention! Hope you have a great week.ReplyDelete
Ohh I can't wait to read Cinder! Excited to see what you think about it! Hope you enjoy all of these and thanks for stopping by my blog :)ReplyDelete
I hope to finish the Princess Bride today. I also plan on re-watching the movie too so I'll have a post up about both. Can't wait to get it started.ReplyDelete
