{ Thoughts }

I've been away almost three weeks now and I'm so happy that every time I returned home I found more books waiting for me! (My TBR pile groans). This week I received The 100 by Kass Morgan from Becca Jane over at Pretty Little Memoirs (Thanks Becca!) which I've actually already read and reviewed before (see review here), but this edition has the television cover so it's cool nevertheless! I'd highly recommend it as both the television show and the book are awesome (though they don't really follow the same story line). I also got an arc of Lies We Tell Ourselves by Robin Talley which I think is going to be a big hit in around a month when it is released. I haven't started it yet but it looks like it's going to be a good one! 

I start work experience tomorrow at Penguin Random House which I'm so excited about! It will be really interesting to see what happens inside their offices and who knows, maybe I'll be the one sending all your mail out for the next two weeks! 

What did everyone else get this week? Has anyone read any of the above? Good/Bad?
