Update: Finals Week

Wow. It’s been a long time since either of us has been on here. We’ve both been busy with papers and finals.  We’re both in reading slumps. Tay is still having quite a book hangover from Me Before You by Jojo Moyes which I am currently reading. I’m not really in a slump. I have been reading really easy books that tend to get me more motivated to read. In this case, I have been reading books by Ellen Hopkins where she writes in a free verse form. I absolutely love that and it makes me feel more confident about how much I’m reading.

I didn’t want to write reviews about each one because they are hard to describe without giving away too much. Plus, I just get through them too quickly. But I will put the ones I read down below. I encourage you to read them, they always get me out of book slumps. They should be for more mature audiences since it deals with a lot of difficult situations.

Anyway, it is finals week for us and we are done on Wednesday! I’m so excited because I have very high expectations for this summer. After school is out we should both have a lot more time for this blog and reading! I know we have a lot planned for this blog and we want great things to come out of it. Just bear with us!
