Middle March Update

So I know I have been absent as of late. Real life has taken over and for me that is a good thing.

I started blogging because no one in my real life cared to hear about the books I was reading. Now I have some pretty great people who are totally bookish.

I will still be posting on here just not on a regular schedule. I will participate in Top Ten Tuesday (Who doesn`t like lists), Give reading updates (still have my reading goal for the year), and will post min-reviews on books I think people really need to give a shot.

I follow a blog Glamorous Book Lounge here is the link to check her out: http://glambooklounge.blogspot.com/
She does this really cool post every once in awhile Sunday Scoop. I like all the interesting links that she shares. 
One topic really interested me in her post http://glambooklounge.blogspot.com/2014/02/sunday-scoop-17.html. 
It was talking about how we have made-up words that everyone uses. My word that i took from it was Nurdling: 
The act of sticking your cold feed under someone's butt on the couch (verb), ner-duh-ling.

Her posts convinced me to start collecting interesting links i find through-out the week and share them one here. Not all of them will be book related but most will.

Life:
     School is going well. Today is the first day of Spring Break. I had midterms all last week so my month consisted of studying. I qualified to take my one speech for Forensics to a tournament locally. That should be fairly exciting. 
    Been doing lots of outdoor work in the backyard putting up 2 greenhouses and rebuilding a chicken run. Boyfriend and I have been making plans for the summer when I get home from my road trip in June. 
     Weather hasn`t been too good so haven`t gotten much riding done. I have family coming up in 2 weeks which means we will be going riding. 
     Already bought my ticket to go see Divergent when it comes out. The audiobook of book 1 was pretty good, have to get hands on audiobooks for 2&3. I already know the ending so I`m not in dire need of those. 
     



That`s all for now. I will have a Top Ten this week as well as a book haul. Trying to record a shelf tour for YouTube but that is taking some time.


TTFN,
Ashley

  1. I still have to finish Divergent before I go to see the movie; I'm really excited to see Maggie Q as one of the characters in it! I'll probably read it after finals, which are next week.

    And I'm looking forward to looking at your Scoop posts. :) Happy reading!
