So how was your week?

Summary -
This is for two weeks since I forgot to post last week.  Week one was an amazing reading week even with the whole day on Sunday spent crocheting.  This past week started slow with a lot of tv watching Monday night.  We are trying to finish up season 4 of The Walking Dead so we can watch the first two episodes of Season 5 and then start in with Season 5 next Sunday.  And then there is The Voice which can't be missed. But I finished up the week on a reading binge by diving ito Beautiful Oblivion and  Elite.  Now I'm on and roll and should finish my audio of Black Ice today and can't wait to get into Ashes to Ashes to see how that series turns out!

So how was your week?

Currently Reading: Panic by Lauren Oliver

Panic by Lauren Oliver
Obtained From: Library
Why I chose this one: I love Lauren Oliver and had to try out this new series

Date Started:10/14/14 (and I will f inish it today (the 15th), read over 300 pages just last night, that's how engrossing it is!)


About Panic:
Panic began as so many things do in Carp, a dead-end town of 12,000 people in the middle of nowhere: because it was summer, and there was nothing else to do.

Heather never thought she would compete in Panic, a legendary game played by graduating seniors, where the stakes are high and the payoff is even higher. She’d never thought of herself as fearless, the kind of person who would fight to stand out. But when she finds something, and someone, to fight for, she will discover that she is braver than she ever thought.

Dodge has never been afraid of Panic. His secret will fuel him, and get him all the way through the game, he’s sure of it. But what he doesn't know is that he’s not the only one with a secret. Everyone has something to play for.

For Heather and Dodge, the game will bring new alliances, unexpected revelations, and the possibility of first love for each of them—and the knowledge that sometimes the very things we fear are those we need the most.
