Weekly Reading List #26

By Cynthia Ayala

Hey there avid readers! So I am almost done with this semester. Woohoo! I’m so excited to go back home, hug my mom and kitties and kiss my fiancé. Also, I’m looking forward to actually having some me to write and read. I don’t get a lot of time to do that unfortunately but I will be doing that for three weeks….when I’m not working at the movie theater dealing with a bunch of customers who are unhappy with their seating arrangements with Star Wars. Yeah, that’s gonna be fun, I know it. Anyway, I hope that everyone is having a wonderful weekend and such. I will be spending this weekend working on papers! Woo!

Anyway, here’s what’s on my reading schedule for the next week. As always synopsis courtesy of Goodreads.com. Continue reading “Weekly Reading List #26”
