About SamiK

I'm a Library Director for a small(ish) Texas town with a desire to share my love of books and the library with my community.

Currently, I am working towards my MLS (Master of Library Science) from Texas Woman's University (my alma mater!).

When I'm not treading through a pile a school work and work work, I make precious memories with both my handsome men at home. Whether we are playing with the sand between our toes, making a campfire, or just taking in a movie at home, every moment is unique.

Currently Reading (and more)

Well I've got six books sitting in a general area at home that need to be read. Unfortunately I have neglected my love of reading for awhile. So here is my list of books I'm currently (or about to be) reading:

1. Outlive Your Life - Max Lucado (it is taking me forever to read this one again
2. Blue Bloods - Melissa de la Cruz (I couldn't get past the first page -- I'm not into the vampire stories, so this is going to be a challenge)
3. Lighthouse Nights - Jake Vander Ark (reviewing for Flamingnet)
4. Crossed - Ally Condie (Not going to start until I finish the above---eeek!!!!)
5. The Death Cure - James Dashner (I am most excited about this final installment to the Maze Runner Trilogy but I know if I start this one nothing else will matter, so my Nook remains off and hidden until the right time)
6. XIV - Julia Karr ( I'm looking forward to this one but it is nowhere near a priority at this time)

Looks like between work and classes there won't be much time for sleep! :)

and now time for the "more"

I had a pleasant surprise today at work when I was called back to the Youth Room and met blogger Cristina. Check out her blog here. She took home three of our YA arcs for review. Anxious to see them arrive! Also looking forward to my late start in the read-a-thon she is participating in. Read more about it here.

I'll follow up with more information on the read-a-thon and the books.

In my mailbox

I [occasionally] write reviews for Flamingnet and have been anxiously awaiting for the box with my next book enclosed. Yesterday, my waiting came to an end.

As I arrived home, it sat patiently on my porch. Inside the normal brown box was "Lighthouse Nights" by Jake Vander Ark.

With a little over a month left in my final semester as an undergrad, I've pledged to finish weekly assignments before I dare pick up a book. I'm admittedly the world's worst procrastinator. Thus, "Lighthouse Nights" is currently resting on my tv stand taunting me.

A review will follow.
