This recap was requested by a few of my readers– I’ll be telling you what went down the past week, in and out of Flip That Page, and give you a sneak peek preview of sorts on what to expect for the week to come. Happy blogging! 🙂
ON THE BLOG
I shared ten of the books I wish had sequels.
I told you guys about the origin of my blog, Flip That Page.
I put up a list of books for my imaginary English Literature class.
I reviewed Tahereh Mafi’s Shatter Me.
My brother and I held a debate on sympathetic villains.
IN MY WORLD
I went through my First Quarter Periodic Exams. As usual, I cringed and felt my brain matter dissolving all through Calculus and Economics. The rest were doable, though I’m nervous.
I achieved the top marks in class for the English Exam! Think you can tell me the coverage of the entire thing? Well, you guessed it– a book. I went something like, “I know this shit. I remember this. I get this. Hell, I BLOG about this.”
For the first time this year, a guy came up to me and told me I was pretty. At random. It was weird, but it was flattering, so I said thank you and blushed non-stop. He was my first year crush. (He was taken.)
I requested a few ARC titles on NetGalley, and got approved immediately for 7 of them (3 of which got archived immediately after approval, which bummed me out. However, I was given a few hours to download shortly after, so needless to say, I’m a happy potato). Because of the deadlines and the expiration, I’ve decided to prioritize reviewing these titles 🙂 I have yet to get declined, though I’ve resigned myself to the inevitable.
