The Week In Review: #30

March 22, 2015 Memes 19

BMR,OHMy (1)The Week in Review is where I combine Stacking the Shelves, The Sunday Post and It’s Monday! What are you reading?  If you have never joined in on these meme’s you can check them out by clicking on the meme and it will take you to the host blog.

So you know how I said my job at the Scholastic call center was just seasonal and how I was surprised to get call back after winter layoff, well Thursday was my last day. 🙁 I can put my application back in in July when they start hiring for the next school year but till then not sure what I am going to do yet.

Not much else happening here on the home front..so glad Spring is here…though I guess some are still getting snow. Today though here in Missouri is nice!!!

I had the eARC for The Iron Trial and I really liked it so I got this hard cover for my shelf ($2.00). Even though I haven’t read all of the Percy Jackson and I had the first three so I picked up #5 (still need #4), then since I already picked up #1 and #2 of the Kane Chronicles last year when I worked at the call center for Scholastic I picked up #3 this go around. (All still need to be read!.lol) Then I seen this horror one and had to have it..I have only read one of the other Point Horror stories but it was interesting so I thought why not. 🙂 Those three were only .35 a piece so see why I couldn’t pass up getting some books on my last day! (I also got some kids books but didn’t feel like listing them..all together I spent just a little over $5 on books Thursday. 🙂

    I don’t blame you for grabbing a bunch of books with your last shot! Looks like you did some good picking too. Good luck figuring out income! Oh and I’m so glad spring is finally here – we’ve had the rainy spring days. Poor Michelle still had snow Friday – no thank you! LOL! Have a great week!

      Berls and Stormi, we are expecting a rain/snow/sleet mix here in Iowa today. I am so over winter. My poor body can’t take the temperature fluctuations any more. I got sick last week and have hardly been able to focus on reading or blogging.

      Good luck finding a new job, Stormi. Have a great week!

    • Stormi

      I hope you get your hands on Dark Alchemy as it’s really strange and I would love to get your take on it. 🙂

    • Stormi

    Sorry about the job but there is always Gardening 😉

    Did you like the Luck Uglies? I have the book still on my kindle from forever ago but never go the chance to read it.

    Glad you have nice weather here is nice today but the snow on Friday I could have done without. Thankfully it’s gone now.

    Enjoy all your new books and Have a great week!

    • Stormi

      Hey, Dad got the tractor running kind of and he bought me a hoe, so there might be gardening this year..lol.

      I did like Luck Uglies, it was different. It had some slow spots and some eye roll moments but I liked it. 🙂

    That’s sad that Thursday was your last day, will you be looking for a new job? I also got People are Dragons too, it sounds really good! The weather has been nice this week, althoguh we also have had a few colder days. Hope you have a great week!

    • Stormi

      Going to see what is out there..not much available around here in my area. I hope we both enjoy People are Dragons,too. 🙂

    • Stormi

      It’s my first time reading this author, but so far I am liking it, but it is a bit strange..lol.
