Random Updates is a randomly-written feature written by Shelly when she needs to rant,discuss or just talk about her life!


Phew, I haven’t written a Random Updates post in a while but gahh I REALLY WANTED TO. First, I can’t believe it’s been two weeks since I met Octavia, IT SEEMS LIKE YESTERDAY! If you haven’t read it already, I recapped my NYC trip here and gahhhh, I get so nostalgic just thinking about it. Sadly, my exams start on Wednesday and I AM NERVOUS! I’m doing well in my classes (which surprises me, honestly) which means that I have to work extra hard to make sure that I do well on my exams. *sighs*

In other news, my blogoversary celebration with ALL THE BLOG POSTS finally ended and you can enter to win some books here. It’s international so, GO ENTER! I am also in the search for some padded mailing envelopes that I can buy in bulk to make all of my shipping easier. I’m dreading just thinking about trying to ship twelve books all at once. How do you guys do it?

Surprise, surprise, I’ve been reading like CRAZY and exams aren’t stopping me! Seriously, I think I need to work harder or something. I found a copy of Ruin & Rising on Friday so I already finished it and it was so good! I won’t say anything else because I do not want to spoil ANYTHING for anyone so my lips are sealed! I’m also almost done my bookish bingo card and I AM VERY EXCITED! This bookish bingo lasts until June 30th and when I’m done, I’ll do a round-up of all the books I’ve read and maybe some thoughts on them.


I haven’t included ‘music’ this week because I haven’t really listened to some new music recently but I’m hoping to fix that when my exams are over. In terms of TV shows, I’m finally all caught up on Bones and I am now watching Veronica Mars! I’m on season 2 and I’m enjoying it so much!

    I requested The Queen of the Tearling when I saw it on EW because I was doing a new debate feature (which flopped horribly, btw) about the controversy surrounding the unknown author’s seven figure advance and instant movie deal. I wanted to hate it because she got a better deal than authors who have “paid their dues”, and at first I was shaking my head because while it was good, it was nowhere near seven figures good. However, just before 20% in it became marvelous, so I am eating crow on this book. Lol. I am recommending it, now. 🙂

    Good luck with your tests; I am sending the good vibes to you. You will be brilliant!! I will pitch your giveaway some more, too. 🙂
