Latest Happenings


Whew! So, that was an exam week. I’m completely brain dead now, after having done nothing but study, study and study some more for a week straight. Seriously, I didn’t even have time to read. But… it’s over for now, so I can sit back and relax (hahahahaha who am I kidding, I’ve got way too much to do). And READ. I’m very excited to be able to read again.

So yeah, I’m afraid I don’t really have anything interesting to say because nothing has happened. Or rather, nothing has had time to happen. Oh, and thank you to everyone who wished me well on my exams! Most went pretty okay, though I think I messed up a couple. But we’ll see about that later 😛 I hope everyone had a fabulous week!


I’ve been floating around, but once again not enough to comment or even read for that matter. Maybe when it’s actually winter break (and not just snowing, ugh the snow is crazy this year it feels like) I shall get some more time to show my appreciation/love for blogging and reading with more blog posts and commenting. Because I really miss and love you guys <33

I’m trying to think of cool and non school/work things that I’ve done recently and it’s pretty sad that I’m struggling to come up with things. I went swimming with a friend recently, obviously in a heated pool as it’s truly freezing here. I went shopping and realize that Guess is my new favorite store. I can’t stop buying clothes from there and I wish I had the amount of money where I could buy the whole store omg. I also bought concert tickets for Taylor Swift’s 1989 tour. I’ve never seen her live before so that’s exciting. I also ADORE her new album, literally all of the songs are great c:

Larissa’s Book of the Week


So this one caught my eye today from the cover, it’s pretty interesting and unique to say the least. It comes out May 26th and I’d really like to try it. What really has me interested in this story is how there’s going to be actual comics interwoven throughout it. I’d really like to see how that would be and I think it could be really well done. I also love when stories include little fun things like comics in the story, it makes it even more of an interactive experience in my eyes.

  3. CONGRATS ON FINISHING YOUR EXAMS CELINE. Now we stew and wait for results but you’ll be amazing! x Magonia sounds AMAZING. I can’t wait for that one!

    The new album is fantastic, isn’t it, Larissa? The thing is, my work plays it on repeat all day (because I think our stereo thing is broken LOL) and I get so pissed off by the end of the night. And then because I’m brainwashed, I go home and I’m compelled to keep listening. So I hate is but I love it because it’s a work of art.

      The album is super stellar, honestly my favorite from Miss Swift so far (: Lol! I totally feel your pain though. With my part time job it’s already constant Christmas carols and that definitely drives me up the wall.

  4. I really want to read Finding Paris because…PARIS. (I have a thing about Paris…I just want to go there so badly and I can say fromage so like I’m halfway to being fluent in the language [as long as you imagine me saying “fromage” with an Australian accent…so, that’s also a bit awkward] which will be glorious.) *ahem*

    Celine: Congrats for getting through exam week! WOOT. Celebration time?
    Larissa: I hope you enjoy the concert and yaaay for maybe getting time to read soon. 😉 Miss chatting with you too!

    • Celine says:

      Paris is awesome. I so want to go there one day. (we should definitely go together and say fromage in our undoubtedly beautiful accents!) Also thank you!! No celebration time yet because I have a HUGE assignment due this week (like worked-one-and-a-half-year-on-it huge), soo… But around Christmas I’m definitely going to celebrate. 😛

    • Larissa says:

      Ahhh I really want to go to Paris too <33 Oooo, tu es parles francais? (; Haha I know a bunch of French considering I live in a bilingual country.


  5. I Am Princess X looks good! I like books that have extras like comics and the like.

    I’m glad that your exams are finally dusted and out of the way Celine, there’s nothing better than being able to read all the books after a stressful period, I hope you’re able to curl up with something relaxing soon. Larissa my cousin’s have been sending me photos of all the snow they currently have in Canada and laughing at my high expectations of some sort of snowfall here 🙁 I hope you both have a wonderful week!

  10. Celine: Congrats on getting through the week! Definitely take some time to reward yourself and relax! 😉

    Larissa: I’VE MISSED YOU! <3 I hope that you find a way to refurbish your passion for blogging and that you get back in the zone!

    Definitely interested in seeing what you both think of None of the Above and Mangolia as those definitely sound absolutely pheonominal and original. Thanks for sharing girls! <3

    • Celine says:

      Thank you Zoe!! I wish I could, but unfortunately another huge assignment is due this week 😛 (It’s kind of like writing a thesis but a little less long) However, I am going to do nothing at all during Christmas break. Mwahaha.

      Definitely curious about those two! Especially None of the Above seems to be incredibly unique.

    • Larissa says:

      <33 love ya Zoe!

      And yeah i think I just need to finish a great novel and things will be going back to normal

  11. Congrats on surviving exam week Celine! 🙂

    I hate snow too! It looks like a blizzard out there right now. I wish there was a heated pool somewhere around here! Enjoy your Concert!

    I am Princess X sounds unique. I’ll have to remember that one.

    Magonia sounds good to me too!

    I’m glad you’re back after all of that crazy studying! I’m so not motivated to study for my exams so I’m glad they aren’t until early January when we get back from our winter break. 😛

    I actually really love snow because I live in a state where we NEVER get snow, but I definitely don’t want Buffalo-level snow… That’s insane! I just wish we got a couple inches so that when I looked outside it was more winter wonderland and less brown desert. 🙁

  13. WOAH Celine those books you’ve added on your shelves have some really amazing covers, especially Magonia! Can’t wait to hear what you think of them! Good luck with your exams and I hope you’ll do well, fingers crossed for you! Reading can be your reward hehe.

    Larissa, it’s so different hearing of a polar opposite weather to us at the moment. We’ve been getting like 30-40 degree heat where you can’t live without aircon, so it sounds like the snowing is so different! Stay warm hun!
