In My Mailbox, Reading Progress & Chess Stuff

Yesterday, I received the two books which Em from Em's Bookshelf had sent to me. I won them in her Chicken Soup giveaway. The books are Chicken Soup for the Soul: Teens Talk Growing Up and The Adoration of Jenna Fox! Yay! Two new books to add to my TBR list. :)

My reading progress is quite sad lately. I'm still reading The Sweet Far Thing by Libba Bray and I forgot which chapter I'm at now. I've been quite busy getting into my new semester and sorting my classes out. Thankfully it's all done and I'm ready to concentrate fully on my studies. And reading. It's already Week 4 of the whole semester.

I don't think I'll be joining any clubs this time. As for the Chess Club which I tried last semester, well, I think I'll skip it this time. I got to know this girl who's also interested in playing chess and she suggested that we should get together some time when we are free and have a game or two of chess!

Also thanks to my thoughtful older sibling who gave me a magnetic chess set for Christmas, at least I can put it to use. Perhaps later I might persuade my mom to play with me but I have to teach her how to move the pieces first.

Alright, my stomach's grumbling now. Better unstick myself from the chair and have some lunch! Bye!


  1. Enjoy your lunch and happy reading!

  2. Are you enjoying The Sweet Far Thing so far? I really liked the whole trilogy, but like everything it got mixed reviews...

  3. Nymeth: Thanks! I did enjoy my lunch that day. :) Didn't realize how hungry I was!

    Kailana: Erm, I'm halfway through the book now and yes, I can say that I enjoy reading it but it's not like I'm rushing to finish the book! The first two books were more exciting. :)
