By Cynthia Ayala

Hey there avid readers! I hope that everyone is having a splendid week. For me, it was Spring Break so I relaxed, went to work obviously and had some homework, a few short stories to think about my paper that is going to be due in a while, and the final version of my short story, which needs to be done by Thursday.

Anyway, it was nice week, a nice break from school but now it’s back to school and back to the real world where bills live. Ugh. So, here is my reading list that will keep me sane. All synopsis are courtesy of Goodreads. Happy reading.

Weekly Reading List #22

By Cynthia Ayala

Hello there avid readers! I hope that everyone had a wonderful week. I spent the week stress-writing a paper that I’m sure is going to get an F. God, I can’t believe I am hoping for a D. Research papers have always been my weak link.

But enough about that, I’m sure none of you readers want to hear about my writing struggles. Anyway, here are the books I have listed on my to-read for the upcoming week. I just finished reading The Fate of Ten (Lorien Legacies, #6) so I thought I would follow up with the Lorien Legacies novella to kick off my next week.

As always, all synopsis are provided via Goodreads. Happy reading folks. Continue reading “Weekly Reading List #22”
