In My Mailbox and Update

Sunday, May 30, 2010 |
In My Mailbox was created by the lovely Kristi at The Story Siren.


At Books-a-Million this week there was a buy 2, get one free sale on the classics, so I snatched them up! I've read both A Little Princess and Swiss Family Robinson before, and loved them. Although I have yet to delve into King Arthur, I've become all the more intrigued by the British television show, Merlin.


Finally, school is DONE!! More time to read, more time to blog- it's going to be a fantastic summer, I can just feel it! It also gives me time to work on my challenges, which I really doubt I've made any progress on as of yet this year. I'll be doing a midway challenge post within the next week or so, as well as catch up on all of the reviews that I haven't written yet: Beautiful Creatures and The Great Gatsby.

Right now, I'm in the middle of Shiver. OH. MY. It's just soooooooo incredibly well-written. LoveLoveLove.

I'll be seeing much, much more of you soon, my friends. But now I am off to bake some scones and custards for the holiday weekend. My family is eating well tonight. ;P

P.S. I can't wait to hear about everyone's BEA adventures! (And live vicariously through you, haha)

Ooh, history books! That's great, I think I should brush up on my Authorian knowledge. I'm so glad you've finished school! Congrats :D Happy reading!

I have 3 more days of school. Just like you, I am looking forward to having more reading time during the summer. I can't wait to see what you do on your blog this summer.

I have a month of school left. It ends, for me, on June 31st. Grrrr, I feel so out of the summery spirit. Great picks! I loved the little princess:D

Scones sound fantastic! I hope your family enjoys them.

I am glad you love Shiver. I really liked it and I am looking forward to reading Linger soon.

I started watching Merlin but then I got busy with other things and missed out on most of the episodes. I like Arthurian legends. I haven't read King Arthur yet but A Little Princess was a childhood favorite.

I hope you have a fantastic summer! I remember the joy of the end of the school year. My mom is a teacher and she can't wait either :)

YAY, SCHOOl'S OUT! You can bask in the freedom! Ooh, classics. I've watched the movie version of The Little Princess and really liked it<3

WOOT! I'm so happy you're reading Shiver and loving it! (I did too) I'm writing up the review for it right now... I guess you'll pick up Linger right after huh? ;D I'm thinking I'll post it right after my bea/tac recap post. Yummm, scones and custards. Can I haz some? Virtual, of course.
