Lots of Reading & Lemon Cake | Bi-Weekly Update #1

Did you know biweekly means both twice a week and once every two weeks? Semiweekly means twice a week as well, so I’m going with biweekly and hoping that people catch on.

I used to do www wednesday, which I might return to someday, but I didn’t want to be bound to that format. So I hope you’ll enjoy some updates on what I’m doing and reading, as reviews will be scheduled some time in advance as we get further into the school semester (and busier).

Three things I want to say:

  • If it’s you are like me and it’s the first week back at school and information is just thrown at you, it will calm down, and it will get more structured and better.
  • Lemon cake is the best cake, with lots of lemon and sugar creating the perfect balance. This glutenfree one is the best (you’re welcome to present better recipes if you disagree).
  • I really dislike it when I stop reading one book because of the boring characters, only to pick up another and it’s equally boring. Looking at you Lies Beneath and The Price Guide to the Occult (it’s a fantastic title though).
