I am going to be taking a short blogging break while I'm finishing up this semester in college. I thought I could balance everything, but I would rather take a little blogging time off and come back after I'm done with final essays / projects.
If you're stuck in finals week too, best of luck to you! Hope you all have a great week.

WOW is hosted by Breaking the Spine
BLIND by Rachel DeWoskin
April 14th, 2014 by Viking Juvenile
When Emma Sasha Silver loses her eyesight in a nightmare accident, she must relearn everything from walking across the street to recognizing her own sisters to imagining colors. One of seven children, Emma used to be the invisible kid, but now it seems everyone is watching her. And just as she’s about to start high school and try to recover her friendships and former life, one of her classmates is found dead in an apparent suicide. Fifteen and blind, Emma has to untangle what happened and why—in order to see for herself what makes life worth living.
Unflinching in its portrayal of Emma’s darkest days, yet full of hope and humor, Rachel DeWoskin’s brilliant Blind is one of those rare books that utterly absorbs the reader into the life and experience of another.
This seems like it could be an interesting, intense story. The cover is absolutely perfect.
What are you waiting on?

I'm going to take a few days off from the blog. I'll have a WOW post on Wednesday, but I will not be posting anything else until Monday. Life is a bit crazy right now - so many papers to finish writing for school, and I have a busy, family-filled week to look forward to.
While I am not overly fond of this holiday and its origins, I do appreciate the idea of taking a moment to be grateful for the good things in life. I wish all of you a Happy Thanksgiving this upcoming Thursday, and hope you guys have a great week!
