Sunday Update: Pretty Normal..

Sunday Updates are where I share the posts that went up the previous week and also get a bit personal with you guys!


Books Borrowed


So this week was a fairly busy week and I missed quite a bit of school because of it. I had a field trip, then a music festival. Since I had to practice piano a lot, I didn't exactly read. Also, I borrowed a guitar from school and I now have blisters on my fingers. Oh and one more thing that I forgot to mention last week, I got an award at my school for Reader of the Month! Yay! :D There's really nothing else to say, have an awesome week! (How do you like the button?!)


  1. Along for the Ride! I read that one last week? I think? Maybe before that? Anyway, it was really good. I love Sarah Dessen! The guitar is ROUGH! Right when I had my playing where I liked it, I had a work accident and couldn't play for a long time -- I could barely play the piano, either. Now, I'm starting with the ukulele and working my way to the guitar. Good luck!

  2. I can't wait to read another one of her books! I just finished last night, it was so good. Did you hurt your hand?! The only time I couldn't play anything was when I tripped in a gopher hole and landed on my hand. Just twisted it, nothing serious. I really want to learn to play the ukulele too! I don't know, it has a cute name and it sounds cute as well... haha.

  3. I read What Happened to Goodbye and it was really good! Now I'm reading Lock & Key. I'm on a bit of a Sarah Dessen kick now. :)

    And yeah, I worked at a grocery store and had an incident with the bread slicer -- you know, those machines where they put the whole loaf of bread in, slice it, and then the worker grabs it and bags it? Well, the VERY FAST-MOVING MACHINE and my fingers sort of collided and I had some major damage done. I was bandaged up for a long time and had to wait for, uh, things to grow back. It was PAINFUL. I do not recommend working around sharp machines when you play instruments!

    Anyway, the ukulele is a LOT of fun and so much easier than guitar!

    Congrats on being reader of the month. That's fantastic! I love love love Along For the Ride. Enjoy!

  5. OH MY GOD. YOUR COMMENT SHOWED UP!!!! Thanks Andrea! I absolutely LOVED Along for the Ride as well, can't wait to read another one of her books. :D

  6. I'll be borrowing her books from the library for now... but I'll probably buy her newest book when it comes out in June! :D

    Oh my God. I'm so glad you're better now! I have a very non-pleasant image in my head right now.

    You know how a guitar is tuned EBGDAE, how is a ukulele tuned? Or does it just depend on the song?

    I really liked Along For The Ride. I thought it was a great story :) My favorite by her is definitely This Lullaby, though. Enjoy your book!

  8. Thanks Montana! I'll go borrow that from the library ASAP!! :D

  9. Congrats on the award! Very fun. =D

    Loveeee Sarah Dessen. Along for the Ride is actually one of my favourites by her.
