Sunday Musings [13]: My Week in Pictures & New Books

Two birds one stone - I stumbled upon The Sunday Post Meme hosted by the lovely Caffinated Book Reviewer & the Stacking The Shelves meme hosted by the awesome Tynga's Reviews! It is quite similar to what I'm doing here with my Sunday musings - recapping the week in book blogging universe as well as letting you guys know about what books I bought or received.

The BloggityBLOG this week played host to the book It's A Wonderful Death By Sarah J. Schmitt. And no I was not sponsored in anyway to do postings or what not for it - I genuinely am so excited for its release in the Fall! The book made me think a lot about the ole' question, would you turn back time to correct the past mistakes you've made knowing that your entire life presently would be altered? It's a crazy concept that is always fun to think about! Hop over to my Tuesday post if you want to talk more about this topic ;P In other my life news, I spent the latter part of my week away in Waterloo with some of my best friends. Sort of having our annual summer hang out. It's hard to keep in daily contact with these people because we're miles away from each other and we lead very different and chaotic life styles! It 'twas a blast to see these people again and a good humbling reminder that distance is but a number! An accomplishment for the week was getting my Korean Food craving satisfied! I took my momma out to one of my favourite Korean restaurants, Owl of Minerva. Seriously, any readers out there in the Toronto area you've got to check this place out if you like Korean food! The best pork bone soup out there!

Random news - I went to a Mariana's Trench Concert this past Wednesday is was freaking unbelievable! I left not feeling my legs and filled with such epic vibes! I love the band and their music. They played a couple songs off their new album which is set to be released in October this year. It's my most anticipated album of the year! Forever love these boys! Definitely give them a listen, they harmonize like nobody else! (Their sound is on the same wave length as Fall Out Boy?) Canadian band too so I got to love them out of National Pride!

Happening This Week:

Review: The Intern's Handbook By Shane Kuhn

NEW Books added to my shelf this week:


Two new books this week! Both were bargain buys so that is AWESOME! The first is Lola and the Boy Next Door by the highly talked about Stephanie Perkins. It is the original cover or an alternative cover I believe. At first I didn't recognize that it was the book by Perkins! Second book is Burning by Elana K. Arnold. The synopsis intrigued me because on one side we have a boy who's stuck in a small town but has his eyes set on getting out and on the other hand, there is a girl born into a gypsy life who want's nothing but a small town where she can tie her roots down. Their lives are so intriguing together so I'm super happy about this pick-up!
