I got the rest of my fragiles/breakables packed up, along with most of my odds ‘n’ ends AND board games AND dishes, this last week (mostly this morning.  I was a busy bee this morning!)  I also cleaned the stove before calling quits for the day–chemical headaches due to too much scrub-a-dub and not enough air filtration left me a bit out of sorts this afternoon, but I took a very hot shower and shaved and I felt MUCH better.

We got hit HARDCORE by a winter storm last night/this morning.  Last I checked, the snow was above my ankles already–it’s a winter wonderland, and it’s FREEEEEEZING.  It’s supposed to hit -42 F with windchill tonight.  BRRRRRRR!  I get that I’m a penguin, but I’m not equipped for this sort of weather guys.  I’ve been hiding indoors instead.

I FINALLY!  started on The Neverland WarsAnnelise the PandaPants should be SOOPAH pleased and proud to hear this!  I know, I know, I’ve been slacking…I’m soooooo terrible!  I’m trying, though–hopefully you’ll get some more reviews before I move, guys!  I’m hoping to settle in for some LONG TIME reading tomorrow, so fingers crossed I get at least one book fully knocked out!

Thursday was my last day of work, but…I don’t think it’s fully sunk in yet?  Actually, I don’t think the fact I’m moving next week has fully sunk in yet either.  That probably won’t happen until Keith gets here and we start loading up the truck.  Maybe not even then.  It might not hit me until we’re out of town, on our way down the road–that’s what happened when I went off to college.  Things just don’t really sink in with me until I’m actively in the middle of doing it, I guess.

Bau and I watched half of Scream (Season 2) when he was here last weekend.  I FINISHED the other half after he left, and lemme just say….OH MY GOODNESS?!?!?!?!  I mean, okay, the last two episodes were weird and didn’t really have much baring on the actual story line–they sort of went off on their own little mini tangent–but I.  LOVE.  This show so hard?!  Anyone else watch it and want to scream with me?!?!?!

I’m also currently watching Fuller House (Season 2).  It’s soopah adorable so far, though I’m only like 3 episodes in.  LOOOOOVE that so many of the shows I grew up watching, are being brought back or given continuations.  SUCH an awesome trend!  I just saw today on facebook, for instance, that Duck Tales will be returning in 2017…..with DAVID TENNANT playing Scrooge McDuck!!!! I mean… I’m SO excited, I can’t even handle this.

So…I went off on a little bit of a tangent myself there–sorry, penguins!  Let’s jump into the books now, yes?!

    • I AM moving–in like, fiveish days?!?!?! I’m headed to Indiana, and I’m super excited–I’ve never lived outside my home state before, so it’ll be a new and interesting experience for me I think!

      I so understand though–packing up all my books and movies and tv shows was DAUNTING when I first started putting things in boxes! And now I sit here staring at my mostly empty apartment thinking…. “I so miss looking at my babies!” Aw well–they’ll be out of boxes soon, hopefully!!

      Hahaha, thank you so much for stopping by, Alyssa! You have a great weekend, too!


  1. I can’t believe how mild it is here. To be at 15 degrees is unusual which makes me think the big snow might be coming at some point! I’m hoping to read My Lady Jane soon and a friend bought me Pumpkintown Perils which sounds interesting. Not my usual read but I’ll give it a go!

    • Oh that’s so awesome (about your friend buying the book)! It’s been SO cold here, and it sounds like even states that don’t normally get snow have been hit too, which is just crazy. Here’s hoping we both enjoy My Lady Jane and Pumpkintown Perils–I’m pretty excited about both of them, myself!

  3. Ooh I loved Salt to the Sea! Ruta Sepetys is one of my favorite authors. ❤ I have both My Lady Jane and Elementals but haven't read either one yet. I've heard so many good things about MLJ though!
