My last post came to you the Monday after spring break. I spent some of that time in Washington D.C. visiting family and friends, including meeting Amy and Andye of Reading Teen! Both of them are incredibly nice and we had a great time talking books and sharing the largest piece of lasagna I have ever seen. Due to unforeseen personal circumstances I didn't get to do a lot of sightseeing, but I read several books and developed an addiction to Modern Family. So hilarious!
Shortly after returning home from spring break, I made some travel plans, and I'll be attending ALA Annual this summer in Anaheim, California! I'm very excited to meet fellow librarians (yeah networking!) and bloggers, as well as authors and publicists. Let me know if you'll be there as I'd love to say hello.
My less exciting travel plans include going home for a week in May. You guys might find this rather boring, but I am pumped to be reunited with Macey the yellow lab. Really, how could I not miss this face?
I also saw The Hunger Games the weekend it came out! Not flawless, but what a great movie. I cried during the reaping and at the end. Stay tuned for a full length Adaptation Corner post on it.
I celebrated my 24th birthday on April 1st! There was cheesecake and book buying involved. It was excellent.
My last on most unfortunate piece of news is that of late, my university has been inundated with bomb threats. Thankfully no bombs have been found, but the volume of threats (we recently received 12 in one day) has been a bit disheartening. However, everyone has stuck together and I know we'll continue to do so until whoever's behind this has been caught.
That's all for now. Some reviews you can look forward to soon are Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta, The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger, and The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight. School has slowed down my blogging, but rest assured, more is on the way! DFTBA
