I seriously meant to blog at least once a month when I said I would in my last blog in January, but things got hectic with my last three classes. But I graduate with my B.A. in English Literature (minor in History) on April 26th at 4PM so I’ll have more time to remember to blog about things I’m into and my daily life after that. I’m so excited. I just turned in a final paper for one of my classes earlier today and I’m turning in my last final paper for another class on 4/24 (during final exam week) and taking my last final exam for another class on 4/22. And I’m finished with this semester’s reading materials/novels so all I have to do is what that last paper and study for the final exam. I’m so freakin’ excited to graduate in 2 weeks!
But anyway, I guess I’ll talk about some things I’ve been into lately while I’m typing this up as it’s only fair.
I haven’t been able to read as much this semester since I’ve had novels to read for two of my classes and then history texts to read for my other class, but I’ll recommend a few of the books I did read:
Lone Wolf by Jodi Picoult – I read this the weekend before the semester started in early January and really enjoyed it. Basically if you’re a fan of wolves than you’ll enjoy this as it all circles and ties back to the behaviors of wolves and how a wolf pack compares to the way relations of members in a family work. The ending is quite mind blowing since it really ties up the wolf plot of the novel with the contemporary so nicely. I highly recommend this novel.

The Wolves of Mercy Falls trilogy by Maggie Stiefvater – I read these books over winter break and fell in love with this trilogy. The werewolves are definitely unique in the way they shift back and forth between human and wolf based on the weather temperature (the colder it gets causes them to shift from human to wolf and back to human when the weather warms) instead of from the full moon. It’s also a romance and it will naturally give you feels and cause you to cry. But this trilogy is so worth reading because you’ll fall in love with it.
The Raven Boys (#1) by Maggie Stiefvater – This novel will blow your mind at every twist and turn the novel takes so consider yourself warned. But you will love it. I don’t really know how to talk about this novel without giving away major spoilers so you’ll just have to take my word for it that it’s amazing and definitely worth checking out. You can always read the review I wrote for it on goodreads: http://dft.ba/-5zN_ (be warned, it contains spoilers).
The Madness Underneath (#2 of The Shades of London series) by Maureen Johnson – This novel, just gah, so many feels. You can see my review for this novel on goodreads: http://dft.ba/-5zyK (be warned that this review contains spoilers).
Love is the Higher Law by David Levithan – This is a novel about a group of teens and how 9/11 affected each, and also how 9/11 brought this group together as friends. My review on goodreads: http://dft.ba/-5AMt
And that’s it for this post. I’ll probably talk about my make-up favorites next post since I’ve been wearing make-up regularly each day for the past couple months (I know, shocker). But honestly, I feel so much better about myself now; it’s amazing what a little make-up can do to boost your confidence. Anyway, until next time. (:
