I'm so glad to be back in the book blogging world! I look forward to seeing what everyone has gotten this week. I didn't get a lot myself, but I did get some good ones! :)

Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

A HUGE thank you to Random House Children's and Knopf Books for Young Readers for approving me on Netgalley for this ARC. I've been extremely excited to read it (you all know how I am about space books) and it is just as great as I thought it would be. A review will be coming in the next week or so.

Goodreads Summary: This morning, Kady thought breaking up with Ezra was the hardest thing she’d have to do.

This afternoon, her planet was invaded.

The year is 2575, and two rival megacorporations are at war over a planet that’s little more than an ice-covered speck at the edge of the universe.

Changes To My Personal Life and Blogging Life

Hi all,

It's been quite a long time since you've heard from me. I've been working hard in college and struggling to balance school work with my job. During that time I haven't had really any time to relax and read like I would like to. I was majoring in Computer Science and time was extremely limited because computer classes for some reason take up a lot of time (probably because coding projects take forever).

During the couple months I have been away, I have had some changes in my personal life that are going to affect my blog and it's followers. I changed my major. This was necessary for me because staring at coding all day was really straining my eyes, which I couldn't handle, and I really missed writing (and reading, of course). Right now I am majoring in Journalism, but when I graduate in May and transfer to a university for my Bachelor's Degree, I'm thinking about majoring in English or something similar.

So, you're probably wondering how this pertains to you?
