Current State of the Union: What's up with the blog?

I'm off on a three-week hiatus for the month of July, dealing with my exams :) I haven't been reviewing much lately, but don't fret, I am currently reading an excellent selection of books (and the reviews will come out at the end of the hiatus; I have so many thoughts burning in my mind, but I just haven't had the chance to sit down and pen them down into a coherent review). 

Just to give you a sneak peek, the books I'm reading/I've just finished reading/I'm going to read right away:

I. Eleanor and Park (read--review half done)
II. All Our Yesterdays (reading)
III. Fangirl (going to read ASAP)
V. One Night That Changes Everything (read--review not done yet)
VI. The Lonely Hearts Club (reading)

Since I like pretty book covers and this post would be horribly lacking a certain something if I do not put up a picture, here's one gorgeous cover to keep all of us happy!

      A coming-of-age tale of fan fiction, family and first love. 

Cath is a Simon Snow fan.

Okay, the whole world is a Simon Snow fan . . .

But for Cath, being a fan is her life — and she’s really good at it. She and her twin sister, Wren, ensconced themselves in the Simon Snow series when they were just kids; it’s what got them through their mother leaving.

Reading. Rereading. Hanging out in Simon Snow forums, writing Simon Snow fan fiction, dressing up like the characters for every movie premiere.

Cath’s sister has mostly grown away from fandom, but Cath can’t let go. She doesn’t want to.

Now that they’re going to college, Wren has told Cath she doesn’t want to be roommates. Cath is on her own, completely outside of her comfort zone. She’s got a surly roommate with a charming, always-around boyfriend, a fiction-writing professor who thinks fan fiction is the end of the civilized world, a handsome classmate who only wants to talk about words . . . And she can’t stop worrying about her dad, who’s loving and fragile and has never really been alone.

For Cath, the question is: Can she do this?

Can she make it without Wren holding her hand? Is she ready to start living her own life? Writing her own stories?

And does she even want to move on if it means leaving Simon Snow behind?

Lots of love,


  1. You still have school?! I hope you get lots of rest and do an amazing job on those exams. Show them whose boss! XD

    I really want to read Fangirl and Eleanor and Park so I can't wait to see your thoughts because all the reviews I've been reading were glowing.

      Can't wait to review those two books too! But I'm definitely going to have a hard time finding the right words for them ;) They have beautiful stories and Rainbow Rowell is just a genius.
