This scholarship submission is killing me—in that mixed way, where there's the mix of self-deprecation and insecurity versus "I got this" and overconfidence.

Oy.  I have no patience for this type of drama.

I got some great books this week, though. :)

Plain Kate | Erin Bow  Picked this up from my school library—because turns out my school library actually does have some cool books.  Recent, too.  So finding Plain Kate restored my faith in the competency of my school library.

Daughter of Smoke and Bone | Laini Taylor  Dude!  Okay.  So, I went on a "Sampling" rampage on my Kindle—basically downloaded a bunch of samples from various books.  One book I was really excited for, well, the sample sucked.  Then, I was skeptical about this book but the sample ROCKED.  So much so, I bought it when I went to Books A Million.  I'm almost a hundred pages in already.  So excited.

That's it for me this week.  Sweet grabs, eh?

Oh yeah!  Y'all!  The leaves are FINALLY turning here in Charlotte, NC.


Snagged a picture just this morning for y'all.  LOOK AT THAT BEAUTIFUL BLUE SKY!
