la biblioteca

Hey fancy faces.
It's Friday again.
And I can't decide if this week went by fast or slow.
So I guess that means it went by...normalish?
Anyway, I have good news and things to share!

First, I have an interview at a fantastic organization.
For the sake of not jinxing it or revealing too much about whether it's a full time job, part time job, volunteer opportunity, internship, etc...that's all I'm going to say.
But - YAY!
Say your prayers and cross your fingers.
I'll share more when I can :)

Second, I'm on a big library kick lately.
Borrowing books is free.
Borrowing books is fun.
Borrowing books makes you smart.
Borrowing books causes nostalgia.
I can't make a better case than that.  If you're not convinced by that argument then you might just have a stone cold heart...or an iPad.  Or maybe I'm not that good at arguments.
Guess that's why I'm the only one of my friends not  in law school ;)

So here's what I'm reading now:

It's set in the 1800s.  
Tragedy.  Love.  Strength.  Transformation.
I'm about 60 pages in.  Because I'm a bit of a wuss, it was hard to get through the beginning of the story as it's quite heartbreaking but now I'm hooked and thankful my boyfriend went out with his friends tonight because I curled up in bed with tea and got to read this totally girly book. Who knew?
Anyway, I totally recommend looking into it.

Next up:

This is kind of a no-brainer right?  This woman can do no wrong in my opinion.
Has anyone read this yet?  What do you think?
Harry Potter fans unite! 

And after that:

I've been told it's similar to Hunger Games with a bigger focus on romance.
Sounds right up this girl's alley!
(by the way, I've always found that to be a very dirty phrase. just me?)
The best part about this book is that it's a series.

Needless to say, me and LexPubLib are becoming quite cozy with one another.

Anyone else reading something fantastic?


  1. I'm reading Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin and LOVING it! It's very lighthearted and fun - and the movie is also super cute :)

    Don't forget to enter my Custom Phone Case giveaway going on now!!

    1. I need to read that too! My roommate loved it and said it was even better than the movie :) Isn't that always the way?

  2. Good luck with your interview! I never got into the whole Harry Potter thing...but enjoy your books!

    1. Thank you! I appreciate all the well wishes I can get! Did the interview today...hope to hear back in the next few weeks :)

      And hey Harry Potter isn't for everyone. I couldn't get into it when I was a kid but ended up cruising through the series when I was 22 years old...who would have thought?

  3. I have heard good things about Matched, but I haven't read it yet! I love your blog - it's so CUTE!

  4. I'm half way done with the last book of the Matched series. They are okay, but if you like the Hunger Games, read the Divergent series. so.good. like really good.
