Hey all! I hope everyone had a great Christmas. I did. I'm not going to do a post with everything I got, but I'll list a few things!
- lots of clothes
- LOST season 6
- a new pair of shoes, will wear soon!
- cute pins
- leopard beret
I didn't go out on boxing day but I ended up ordering 4 pairs of shoes off of Aldo/Spring. Was anyone else super disappointed with Forever 21's boxing day sale? They didn't even have free shipping...

My holidays are coming to an end but I'd say they have been rather successful! I finished two of my books so I'll do a super quick review.
I was interested in the overall plot/theme of the book (forced confinement, kidnapping, creepy stuff like that) but I didn't like how it was executed; it sort of annoyed me. The book was from the little boy's perspective, and the first half of the book was quite boring because it mainly consisted of games that him and his mother played in their confined space, which he calls, "Room". The book finally gets rolling when the mother devises a plan to finally escape her confinement. I thought the 2nd half of the book definitely saved it.
Beah's narrative is quite shocking to say the least. His storytelling was good, but didn't evoke too much emotion for me other than shock; however it may have been because I didn't relate to the themes of his story. Nevertheless, it was a good insightful read but the ending was too abrupt for me, especially for a novel of this nature and I wanted more details on how his life continued and ended up to where it is at present time.
