Hello bookworms! Today I’m back with a Spotlight Saturday post, a meme hosted and created by the wonderful Josie @ Josie’s Book Corner. It’s kind of been a while since my first time doing this meme, but since I had so much fun with it last time and have some time on my hands before I leave for Boston, I decided to participate again this week. 🙂
Unfortunately I haven’t been as active in the blogosphere this week and am unable to come up with one for this! (SO MANY BLOGS, SO LITTLE TIME.) I know there are plentiful blog posts out there that are amazing, and I’m so sorry that I’ve been missing out on them.
My spotlighted book this week is The Rose Society by Marie Lu! I recently got a copy of it, and so far I’m loving it!
So yesterday was Boxing Day. I’m not sure if this is something that every country has, or if this is something we have only in Canada, but basically every store put their products on sale..! I went with a couple of my friends to go shopping and, of course, I went crazy in the bookstore. I will be sharing my book haul soon, (hopefully) don’t worry. Some are recent releases, others not-so-recent. But they all seem amazing, so yay for tasty books! (But nay for my wallet…) I should probably get my book buying under control, but… booooooks! ❤ And sales. Sounds good to me!
Other than books, I also went all out on Bath and Body Works products. Seriously, the sales there were amazing!! I got a lot of new perfumes, lotions, some hand sanitizers (they are honestly so adorable), and some soap too. Most of you are probably not that interested in this kind of stuff, but the girly girl in me (who loves scented stuff) is kind of obsessed… LOL. Just kidding. Mostly. It’s a healthy obsession…!
It was kind of a busy day, but it was lots of fun—and hey, I got books and Bath & Body Works. I was happy!
Huh, apps…. Oh! Yes, I have a pick this time. I’ve recently been using the Reminders and Calendar apps a lot more—it really helps to keep things organized and planning things out, making lists, etc. Especially since I’ve been trying to schedule my day out a bit more, making sure I don’t miss anything I have to do, etc.
♪Hello from the other side…♪
Can you guess what song I’m spotlighting this week? Hello by Adele has been stuck in my head lately—when my head isn’t filled with Christmas songs, hehe.
You can’t start the next chapter of your life if you keep re-reading the last one.
I’m not quite sure where this quote came from or who made it, but I love it all the same! It simply is such a great reminder of how dwelling on things that happened in the past won’t get you anywhere; it will simply hold you back.
So that’s it for this week’s Spotlight Saturday—even if it’s Sunday today. 😉 I’m going to be leaving for Boston soon, but luckily I had the chance to write this up! It was a lot of fun, I missed doing this! It was a good way to sum up my week too.
Tell me how your week has been! Also, do you have Boxing Day wherever you live in? I’d love to know, in the comments! ❤
