Where I've Been and What's Going On

Image
It's that time of year again! It's hot! It's musty! You sweat without trying to! Everyone avoids going outside unless there's water-based entertainment involved!
IT MUST BE SUMMER-ISH! 


I say 'ish' because, officially, Summer doesn't start for a little under 2 months. But this is California! What's Spring? LET'S ALL MELT IN THE HEAT, GUYS!
But how does that bode for the book-based world of the MechEngie that's writing this post? What does spontaneous combustion upon setting foot outside the threshold of my house mean for BOOKS?
Well, next week is what I'm calling the official start of my Summer. I'm starting then because I have so much happening over the next few days I won't have a chance to sit down and read a lot. 
So what does Summer reading look like for me? The first thing that's going to happen is I'm going to finish the book I've been stuck on for over a month. Blame school for that. 

Once that's done, there's a…

WHAT. WHAT. WHAT.

SO...

THE SELECTION TRILOGY.



IT'S. NOT. OVER.

THERE'S ANOTHER ONE COMING.

AND THE COVER.

I CAN'T.



THE STORY OF PRINCE MAXON'S AND PRINCESS AMERICA'S DAUGHTER.

These may or may not all be accomplished.

These are not in order.

Read:
1. The rest of The Mortal Instruments series
2. The Lunar Chronicles
3. Blood of Olympus (I KNOW. I STILL HAVEN'T READ IT. I WAS SCARED AND BUSY.)
4. All of the new books on my bookshelf I didn't get chance to read before college struck.

HELLO!!! AMANDA IS BACK!!!

THAT'S RIGHT!!!

My freshman year of college ends next Friday, May 8th! How the time has flown...I promise to write more on my college adventures soon. For now, this is a brief blurb on my reading!

Thus far, I have read 10 out of 50 books for my Goodreads goal.

The one without a picture is Homeward Bound by Elaine May, which I had to read for my History course.

In fact, all of these except the two on the top to the left were books I had to read for school!

I AM RISING BACK TO BINGE-READING.

I read The Year of the Rat (2nd from the top left) by Clare Furniss within one day (this past Sunday) and I read The Time Keeper by Mitch Albom yesterday. I LOVED both books. They were absolutely fantastic.

Currently, I am reading Scarlet by Marissa Meyer, which is the second book in The Lunar Chronicles. The fourth and final book, Winter, will be released later this year. I just went and bought Cress, the third book, a few days ago along with my very own copy of Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins (…
