I’m Still Alive…

Can we say yay, now? YAY!

Among the things that happened on the time I was away we can list the fact that I completely forgot how to make a post on this thing. And since it isn’t really hard, that should say a lot. It took me ten minutes to remember how to use it.

Moving on.

Life was crazy, I just finished my midterms yesterday and I have class on Monday all over again. Sucks! To those of you confused as to why I’m having midterms in July, let me tell you that here things are upside down. Just kidding… not really. Again, it sucks!

So let me just make a recap here. We are in winter, my classes start again on Monday, I have absolutely not time to breathe… anything good, you ask? Why yes! I got a couple of books while on my hiatus. Like these:

books

As some of you may know The Fault in Our Stars by John Green is my favorite book. Ever. And now I can read it on actual paper. GAH! I was jumping up and down when I answered the door to these books. And The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey is not far behind. I’ve heard too many amazing things about it that I did not resist getting it. So here they are. MINE!

What else did I do? Oh! I read quite some books. Something I could only accomplish by choosing to read instead of studying, something that  was not hard to decide as you might have guessed. 😉

So the next thing on my I-am-still-alive-to-do-list is read The 5th Wave, and then reread The Fault in Our Stars and then write reviews for all of the books I’ve been reading (too many Harlequin books for it to be healthy but oh well) and get this thing going again. Because I have no forgotten you guys!

We are baaack! Now, let’s party…  😉

  3. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
  4. Back to You by Priscilla Glenn [Review]
  5. Second Kiss by Natalie Palmer [Review]

  9. Betwixt by Melissa Pearl [Review]
  10. Angelfall (Penryn & the End of Days #1) by Susan Ee

……………………………..

There is not much left to say. 2012 has been a wonderful year in some aspects, and not so wonderful in others, but I’m grateful for everything. May 2013 be our best book year yet! There are plenty of books to look forward to, so let’s get on with it! 😉

What happened in 2012! Aka The Stats Report!

How’s this for a few months of blogging, huh? 😉 Check out the full report on what happened around here in 2012.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 7,200 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 12 years to get that many views.

Happy Holidays!

Hey everyone!

Christmas is almost over, or at least it is here, but I’d still love to wish you all a great time, and if it’s over already, then I hope you had the greatest of times with your friends and family. And let’s hope Santa left you lots of gifts, too, of course. 😉

And just in case my free times gets getting shorter and shorter I would like to wish you an amazing start of the new year. May it be filled with joy and happiness! 😀

We’ll be seeing each other! 😉

Until then.

Wait. Can I just say one more thing? Umm… if you said no, then know I’m going to say it anyways. You knew that right? Yeah.. So:

Until the next year!

Holidays! Yes! ….and then some…

Oh, yeah. It’s that time of the year again. The beginning of holiday season for those that live in the US, and exams season for me! YAY! Can you hear how excited I am over this? Yeah, thought so.

Anyway. I don’t celebrate Thanksgiving here. But since I know most of you do, I thought I would take a little minute to wish all those who celebrate it an awesome time. I hope you have a great day with your family and friends.

And in my own improvised Thanksgiving-that-I-don’t-celebrate-post, I’d like to say thanks. Thanks to all of you for reading my reviews and all the silly things I say. I know they tend to be extensive sometimes, like right now for example. Yup. That’s me! Silly, silly! 😉

So yes, thank you for sticking with me on this barely four months of blogging. It means the word to me to know that there’s people actually reading what I write, and believe it or not I had lots of fun. It’s been greater than I thought possible. So… Continue reading
