Be Good to Me: August 2013


R: Summer is almost over! *WAH* I'll be back in the U.S. by August 11th and then I start college two weeks later. I'm not that excited. I like having nothing to do besides read.

S: Summer is almost over! *CHEERS* Bring on the fall weather! It's going to be SO WEIRD not going back to college at the end of August, though.

Racquel read:

  2. A Gentleman Undone by Cecilia Grant (D)

  5. Dirty Little Secret by Jennifer Echols (D)
  6. Bloodlines by Richelle Mead (A-)

    Racquel's July's  favorites: 
    -The Story Guy by Mary Ann Rivers: This is only a novella but it has everything. I can't wait to see what Mary Ann rivers can do with a full length novel. It's going to be amazing, that's for sure.
    -Bloodlines by Richelle Mead: The start of this spin off series reminded why I love Richhele Mead, why I love vampires and why I love this world. I can't wait to read the next two books and also add them to my favorites list!

    Other things Racquel did:
    Went scuba diving! I was taking a scuba diving course and and I got my license. Going scuba diving is like experiencing life on a whole other level. I dived 55 feet in Obhur (aka the Red Sea) and I can't wait to do it again when I come back during winter break. If you have the chance to take a course or you're fascinated by anything aquatic like I am, I can't urge you enough, DO IT! 

    That's my younger brother behind me. Good thing I found a picture of me smiling because I was carrying an oxygen tank and added weights. Heavy stuffy!

    Sharon's July favorites:
    One Good Earl Deserves a Lover by Sarah MacLean. I loved the interactions between Pippa and Cross! Entertaining and sexy all at once. If you're looking for a good historical audiobook, I would recommend this one!
    Amy & Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson. Road trips and music and swoons, oh my! I have epic amounts of love for this book! (See what I did there? Yeah. I'm cool like that.)
    The Boyfriend App by Katie Sise. This book was all kinds of nerdy fun, and I felt like I was living in the book and interacting with the characters. So good!

    Other Things Sharon Did
    #01 Watched New Girl with my roommate! Shout out to Natalie at Books, Etc. for her encouragement to start the watching! Totally a good life decision. Jessica Day is basically my more awesome and adorable spirit animal.


    #02 Had a short-term addiction to World of Warcraft

    #03 Started a Doctor Who rewatch! We're watching 5 episodes a week, which should wind up with us finishing right before the Christmas special on November 23. How is it going, you ask?
