Friday Flashback: May 24, 2013 – May 30, 2013

friday flashback

Friday Flashback is a post where I essentially just re-hash the events of my week, bookish and otherwise. I hope you enjoy!

what i read

This week I read two books by Katie McGarry. I started off with Pushing the Limits, which was fantastic! I loved reading about Echo and Noah and their story. After that I read Dare You To, which I liked even more than Pushing the Limits! I should have my review up tomorrow for that one. (If not, I’m really sorry! I’m going to my friend’s cottage today and so as I write this I should be packing, but I’m trying to schedule blog posts for while I’m away!)

As for books I got this week, I have quite the haul. Also, I just realized this week that there is a Meme out there called In My Mailbox, and I feel SO BAD for posting a similar thing here without crediting them, so from now on, credit for this goes to The Story Siren!

book haul may 23-30

I bought all of these books from a thrift store, and all of them together only cost me 20$!!!

Gathering Blue by Lois Lowry
The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jennifer Han
We’ll Always Have Summer by Jennifer Han
A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray
Rebel Angels by Libba Bray
The Sweet Far Thing by Libba Bray
The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan
Evermore by Alyson Noel

what i did

Last Friday I went to Yogurty’s (an amazing serve yourself yogurt shop) with my friend Sondra! We had some yummy frozen yogurt (that I forgot to take a picture of…)

Saturday I hung out with my friends Isabelle and Lara, and we made some DIY high-waisted shorts! In the picture, the bottom two pairs are ones I made last summer, and the top two are the ones I made this summer! (the colouring looks a little off on the pink pair. They start out purple and fade to a not quite as bright pink in reality :P)

diy shorts

The rest of the week I worked – A LOT! But on Wednesday I attended a “Bookish Party” hosted by Cassie and Judith on Twitter. Check out the hashtag #bookishparty if you want to see the all the craziness that was the party! During the party, I was also in a google hangout with my bookish friends AmberDebby, Cassie, and Judith! It was a lot of fun getting to hear everyone’s different accents, and talking BOOKS!
what i heard

This week, I found out that Lennon and Maisy (who are the daughters of the Country Duo The Stellas) sang a cover of Ho Hey by the Lumineers on Nashville! Needless to say, I fell in love with it, and it is LITERALLY the only song I was listening to this week.

what i liked

Alexa’s review of Someday, Someday, Maybe by Lauren Graham.

Betty’s post regarding her planking competition with her husband (Betty was the CLEAR WINNER!)

I also really loved Betty’s review of The Vincent Boys by Abbi Glines.

Judith’s Top Ten Tuesday post this week was HILARIOUS! check it out.

Magan and Estelle posted another Nailed It! A feature I adore.

Jamie’s important post about BEA! ;)

I also found a website called theuselessweb.com, so if you’re looking for a way to kill some time, click on that!

what i posted
