This meme was created for YA Midnight Reads to showcase upcoming posts and hauls from over the past week
This week was certainly a busy one for me. I have announced on twitter quite crazily that I am going to America (!!!) It’s not Rome, but hey. A-FREAKING-MERICA. It’s for school to make us more motivated about science and I will be going to places like Disneyland (totally science related :P) Stanford Uni, Space Camp, NASA etc. I don’t have the full details yet but that’s the general gist! SO INCREDIBLY EXICTED. Will be going next year for 16 days from March till April during the school holidays. I am going to be visiting Alburquerque, Huntsville, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Massachusetts.
I’ve recently went and had an eye test and they found a protruding lump on my iris. So I went to the eye specialist just on Friday and they believe I have a cyst in my eye. Apparently I might have to get it removed if it’s a bad one, but I will not know until I get a proper check with another eye specialist.
I won’t be very active in the two weeks to come as I have 4 essays to write in the span of 11 days so *sobs*

Cry Blue Murder: I’ve heard quite a lot of favourable things for this novel and excited. This one is by an Aussie author
The Caller: This one showed up when I sent in my review of the first novel which I found to be pretty decent. I will need to get my hands on the second instalment, somehow. Also aussie author! 😀
None at the moment 🙁
