Happy Easter! The highlight of my week was getting lots of binders of free. (It sounds kind of pathetic when I say it out loud, but boy, was I happy!) I also made and ate frozen grapes, the best study snack ever (when one is out of peanut butter).
- I reread Julie of the Wolves by Jean Craighead George and liked the way it delve into the issue of fitting in and self-discovery.
- I mini-reviewed Specials and Extras by Scott Westerfeld, the last two books in his Uglies series, and had mixed feelings. I’m looking forward to reading his other works though!
