Bookish Weekly Wrap-Up: 6/11 – 6/17/18


Hello bookworms!

Happy belated Father’s Day to all my fellow bookworms in the States.  I hope all the fathers out there enjoyed their day, and that everyone else enjoyed spoiling the father & father figures in their lives.  I should earn daughter of the year award for going over to my parent’s house to clean out their gutters… Doesn’t sound that hard does it?  Well they live on a steep hill AND have a two story house, so doing it from a ladder isn’t really possible.  That’s right, I harnessed up and had to do it from their roof.  The kicker? It was 92 degrees Fahrenheit yesterday in Ohio, which meant it felt like 120 degrees on that roof.  I’ll be waiting to receive my award in the mail any day now…

Enough about my traumatic Father’s Day activities, let’s talk books!

*Bookish Weekly Wrap-Up is a weekly post where I feature what posts were published on the blog for the past week, any bookish/blog happenings, what I recently finished reading, what I am currently reading, what I will be reading next, noteworthy posts around the bookish blogosphere, and any interesting bookish articles I came across.

Book Review: Nora & Kettle (Paper Stars #1) by Lauren Nicole Taylor


Nora and Kettle Cover

Looking at the cover for Nora & Kettle, you’d expect this book to be a fluffy YA contemporary right?  Fluffy clouds, a kite, and a tea kettle… Yup, screams fluffy contemporary to me.  Oh how WRONG I was!  This book was definitely NOT what I was expecting.  It was much darker and more sinister than I could ever have anticipated…

June 2018 TBR


Since it’s almost half way through June already I debated about even posting my June TBR… but better late than never right?  I’ve actually already read (or started) a few of these books, so at least I can say I am on track this month.

Here are the books on my June TBR…

May 2018 Bookish Wrap-Up + Book Haul


Wowzer is this post late, BUT I have a good excuse this time!  I was out of town for 9 whole days of vacation bliss.  My family took a beach vacation to Charleston, South Carolina this past week.  I’d never been to Charleston before, but quickly fell in love with its Southern charm, amazing sea food, beautiful buildings, and great beaches.  A good time was had by all.


It was a little tough to come home since Ohio decided to regress back to spring like weather.  Today it is 69 degrees and raining… this is not typical June weather.  Take me back to the sunshine & warm weather!

Let’s see which books I read in the month of May…
