Meeting the Author(s): Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

I’m not definitely back from my hiatus, and the more I think about it, the more I think it’ll continue on for a few more weeks for ~reasons~ other than vacation now, lol. But anyway, that’s not the point of this post!

Last week I drove to Texas to attend the Obsidio book tour with authors Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff! It took place at a gorgeous, two-story Barnes and Noble and wow, was it a great crowd! I knew I couldn’t miss going to this because 1) It was the first weekend of my spring break, so HELLO, what a way to celebrate, 2) when would these authors ever be near me again (let alone half-way across the world considering they’re Australian!), and 3) the event was moderating by the lovely Mary over at Mary Had a Little Book Blog!

Top 5 Wednesday: Summer Reads

I work in a school district, and I’m fortunate enough to have a whole month off during summer. (I’m already counting down the days.) Of course, I always plan to accomplish a lot during summer, especially when it comes to my TBR pile. While I do have a TBR jar, I’ve been unfaithful to it lately (thanks, library!).

Anyway, I’m going to try to nail down some books I hope to read while on my break, not necessarily books that remind me of summer (though I might include some of those, too. 😛 ).

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly book blog meme started on Goodreads.

Review: “Holding Up the Universe” by Jennifer Niven

I don’t know what I was expecting when I started listening to this book. While I did enjoy Niven’s All the Bright Places, it was heavy in terms of subject matter, so I wasn’t sure if her next book would deal with similar subject matter. However, I’m glad to see I enjoyed this book more than AtBP, and listening to the audiobook was a fantastic idea because oh my goodness, I actually recognized one of the voice actors! (Thank you, FFXV! 😛 )
