Monday Morning Maddness #50: Books, Halestorm & Into the Woods

I wasn't planning on writing a Monday morning post today, but then I noticed this would be my 50th post, so here I am writing this. I'm glad to say that I finally adjusted my workouts schedule as I exercised before10 AM instead of after 10 PM. I would've done my workout earlier, but I slept in for some odd reason this morning.

My weekend mostly consisted of me attempting to get caught up on reviews, which I'm sadly still behind on. It probably doesn't help that I signed up to review some more products. Actually, I believe I'll be receiving more packages in the mail today. By the way my local post office delivered another package yesterday, which was a Sunday. I was aware they were delivering on Sundays around the holidays, but I thought that had ended a few weeks ago. I guess I was wrong.

Whenever I need a light break from reviewing stuff, I hop on over to YouTube and watch music videos. This is where I stumbled upon the rock band Halestorm and took a liking to their music. On Saturday, I looked for their CDs at my local Walmart, but their music section is so small it is just ridiculous. However, while I was walking down an aisle I glanced over at the $5 CD bin and lo and behold, right there on top of the stack was a Halestorm album. I automatically grabbed it and search through the bin for their other album, but that was the only Halestorm CD in the bin.

I still had a $50 gift card leftover from Christmas which I was planning on buying the Games of Thrones Season 4 DVD next month, so I ended up using it to order Halestorm: The Strange Case Of... for $5.99. I also pre-ordered the new V.C. Andrews book that comes out this week and of course I pre-ordered the Games of Thrones Season 4 DVD.

My Saturday morning ritual is stopping by my local thrift store, where I purchased three more paperbacks for ten cents each. I picked up: Tempting Evil by Keri Arthur, Dangerous Games by Keri Arthur and Succubus Blues by Richelle Mead.

I did take a break from blogging to go to my local movie theater to see Into the Woods. I'm not a big fan of musicals, but I like watching anything with Anna Kendrick, so I went to see it anyway. I think there was only 13 people in theater. I'm not familiar with the Broadway musical, so I had no idea what to expect. My overall thoughts is that the movie was crazy and a little campy. That doesn’t mean that I hated the movie. I may watch it again when it arrives on Blu-ray.
