Bookish Barkings is back and so am I! Well, for now. I know I’ve been absolutely AWFUL at blogging and replying to comments of late (I’m very sorry to all of you who commented on my A Letter to the Universe post… I’M GETTING TO IT I AM). Of late life has been very busy because of school, but I really do enjoy taking an occasional break to blog.
I turned 16
almost a month ago recently, and so I got a lot of books! These include, but are not limited to: CARRY ON by Rainbow Rowell, LIFE OF PI by Yann Martel, SURELY YOU’RE JOKING, MR. FEYNMAN by (guess who?) Richard Feynman, THIRD GIRL by Agatha Christie, THE MYSTERY OF THE BLUE TRAIN by Agatha Christie, THE RAVEN BOYS by Maggie Stiefvater (Gansey!), THE DREAM THIEVES by Maggie Stiefvater (Gansey!!), and BLUE LILY, LILY BLUE by Maggie Stiefvater (Gansey!!!).
Basically, my mother said: “You’re turning 16, we want to get you a ton of stuff and throw a big party!”
And I said, “Please reallocate the budget to books.”
And it happened.
Okay, well, I kind of lied. BECAUSE IT WASN’T END OF STORY.

SO I LISTENED TO MORE CŒUR DE PIRATE. Because OBVIOUSLY.
Also an odd thing happened and my biology teacher decided to play us AC/DC in class. I do not know. She is an odd human bean sometimes.
Aaaaand my English teacher says Operation Ivy is a good thing to listen to(?). Apparently punk music was in like 30 years ago.
