As you guys know, I joined our batch’s cheerleading team this year… Which is basically the reason why you haven’t been seeing me around. I was informed that cheering training is usually pretty chill, but this year, it’s way more fast-paced. I’m barely keeping up, and it’s taking away all my time and energy.

      There are tons of stunts I can’t do and it’s totally stressing me out because a) I feel like I’m going to die (literally) and b) I feel like I might be the reason the batch fails which is x2 scarier. Okay, it’s not scarier than dying, but you get my point!

      So that’s basically why I’ve been dead these couple of weeks. I’ll be back on track when it’s all over in December, I hope. T_T

Only less than two weeks for my trip to Spain and Paris and I am exploding with excitement! I will soon be off to buy winter clothes to prepare and then I’ll be ready to experience two new countries, woohoo! School has been going AMAZING. I love, love, love learning and I’m so excited to keep on learning. Yet I’m still bummed out that I don’t have time to read, it’s been too long! But soon, my friends.

Signs Point to Yes | This Ordinary Life | Romancing the Dark in the City of Light | The Weight of Feathers | Sweet Madness | Along the Way

I received Signs Point to Yes for the blog tour, for which you can find our tour stop here! I requested This Ordinary Life because it sounds like a cute, light read and I really need those right now. I originally didn’t want to read Romancing the Dark in the City of Light, but after seeing people love it, I decided to request it as well. The Weight of Feathers is amazing, and I’m so grateful to the publisher for a gorgeous hardcover. You can find my review here. I’ve also been wanting to read something by the Trisha Leaver/Lindsay Currie duo, and Sweet Madness seems like a good place to start.

Thank you so much to Swoon Reads, Luminis Books, St. Martin’s Press and Merit Press!

  1. Gah! Things sound so crazy for you atm^^ You’ll survive your cheerleading Aimee, I believe in you! And Paris?! Wow, I am super jelly Sara and I hope you’ll share pics with us when you get back :) Enjoy your gorgeous books ladies! xx


  2. This is so relatable! I went MIA for about a whole month in June-July, (that’s technically TWO months?) but I AM BACK NOW AND I MISS YOU AIMMEEEE. PS, I’m that chick from Symphony of Words who TOTALLY MAKEOVER-ed HER BLOG AND NOW IT HAS A NEW NAME OMIGOSH


  3. WOOHOO Aimee! Good luck with your cheerleading! I would love to be a cheerleader but since I’m out of high school AND college, that dream is basically toast. And OMG Sara! So many countries! I’m stoked for you! I went to Costa Rica when I was in college and didn’t have as good of a time as I would have dreamed because HOMESICKNESS and all that good stuff. Stay safe and learn lots! <3


  4. This time of year always gets a bit hectic. Good luck with the cheerleading, Aimee I’m sure you’re doing an amazing job. The trip sounds all kind of wonderful and exciting, Sara. Good luck and enjoy. :D


  5. I have been missing you aaaaall. *sniffles quietly* EVERYONE IS BEING SO BUSY IN THE BLOGGING WORLD, OMG. Clearly the end of the year madness is also catching up. Mwahhaha. Omg good luck with your cheerleading though. o.O DO NOT DIE WE WOULD NOT SURVIVE WITHOUT YoU HERE.

    AHH YAY SARA FOR GOING TO SPAIN! AND PARIS!! I dream of Paris tbh. :’) I hope it’s an epic trip!!


  6. We don’t have cheerleaders, and my school’s annual basketball tournament happened this weekend. I like gymnastics, but I haven’t really done it for ages (side effects of living in India). Good luck with not dying! And Sara, have an amazing time in Spain and Paris. I’ve never been to Paris, but I loved both Spain and France when I went. (Advice: go to all the french bakeries because bakeries and food)


  7. I think life is getting in the way for a lot of bloggers, especially with the holidays coming up. I know I’m trying to be aware of that, so I’m scheduling some posts in advance that go along with things that are happening in the coming weeks.

    But just take your time. We’ll all be here when you guys come back.

    P.S. Aimee – That book haul! I’m thinking of reading a few of them, so I’ll be back. And RTDITCOL was so freaking insane! I hope you enjoy them!
