A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.
Wow this has been one LONG and CRAZY week. Husband says that everything that happened this week was designed to test my patience. I think I can agree with that. Even with being off work on Friday again...my day didn't exactly go how I planned. BUT I'm not complaining about that. Friday night, my SNL and I went to see If I Stay. Movie review will be coming soon. Oh I also received a jury summons on Friday for two weeks from now. *sigh* Saturday, I made mashed potatoes for the first time ever--well not from a box anyway. I think they turned out quite delicious. We also celebrated my sister's birthday with a pool day. Her birthday isn't until next weekend, but that's college football opening weekend. And around here...even birthdays can't compete with that. (Not for me...for other people.) Also, temps have broken 100 this week so pool time seemed the only way to survive.

Goodreads description--From NEW YORK TIMES bestselling authors Holly Black and Cassandra Clare comes a riveting new series that defies what you think you know about the world of magic.
From two bestselling superstars, a dazzling and magical middle-grade collaboration centering on the students of the Magisterium, an academy for those with a propensity toward magic. In this first book, a new student comes to the Magisterium against his will -- is it because he is destined to be a powerful magician, or is the truth more twisted than that? It's a journey that will thrill you, surprise you, and make you wonder about the clear-cut distinction usually made between good and evil.
