A girl and her cat take on the world with nothing more than a cup of tea and a good book and enough dreams to fill the universe.

The Challenge

Five books:

  • The Uglies by Scott Westerfield
  • Princess Academy by Shannon Hale
  • The First Part Last by Angela Johnson
  • A Year Down Yonder by Richard Peck
  • The Fault in Our Stars by John Green


What my room looks like in the middle of a move between the box and bookcase stages. Also, my desk looks like this permanently.

The time frame:

From today, February 25th to March 2nd.


Because sometimes we need the reminder.

Can it be done? I hope so because I don’t want to face the late fees if it can’t be. I also don’t want to have to walk back into the library with my head hung in shame as I ask to renew them once more.


I’ll just walk in like this and say I would like to renew my books so no one would know who I was.

The nice thing, only one of these books is part of a series. I can handle that. I won’t get sucked into Cinder’s world or the world of Delirium. And my spring break will be free to read new books that haven’t been sitting around for long periods of time on my desk asking to be read. I’ll get a clean slate.


Yay! Spring break!

This being said, I have yet to start any of these books. Though, I plan on beginning Princess Academy today. I finished Scarlet yesterday and boy, was it good. It gets awkwardly gushy at the end, but it’s made easier to bear when the other characters find it equally awkward. Teenage love is awkward and it’s nice to find a book that actually acknowledges this fact.


Boy: So, you wanna be my alpha?

Girl: Promise not to kill me?

Boy: Yep

Girl: awkwardly holds his hand

Robot ship overhears the whole thing


So, I’m going to get cracking on this challenge and we’ll see how it goes. Wish me luck. I’ll give you an update on Wednesday.


Cracking like eggs. Except with books.

    Story of my life: the library walk of shame, as I haul the books back unread. Oh well. They’ll be there next time I want to check them out!
