Weekly Reading List #18

By Cynthia Ayala

Hey there readers! So this may be my last really good reading list since I will be starting school next week at Emerson provided that the tropical storm/hurricane does not impede my journey. Since I will be starting school I will mostly be reading school books and ebooks so my reading lists may fluctuate a lot. As for what you can expect in reviews, well there might be a lag here or there since I will also be working 2 jobs and have probably bunches of school work. Ah school, you are so necessary and time consuming. I will be returning to Emerson leaving FL on my 24th birthday (there could be worse birthday’s right?) and hopefully I will get to read everything that I want to read outside of school and work on my side projects and bracelets. On the bright side, I’ll be waking up early because I have to…wait, is that a bright side?

Anyway, you’ve had enough of my rambling so here are the books I hope to read this coming week. And, as always, all synopsis’ are courtesy of Goodreads. Happy reading!
