Wrap Ups & Hauls

Cover2CoverMom’s Weekly Wrap Up: 3/13/16

Happy Sunday!

This is going to be the first of a weekly wrap up post to discuss what I’ve been up to the that week, and what my plans are for the week to come!  I know everyone does the “WWW Wednesday” thing, but I just can’t bring myself to post this in the middle of the week.  I would much rather post at the end of the week on Sunday evening.  I know, I know, I am such a rebel.

This week on the blog…

Monday 3/7

Mystery Monday! Book Review: The Beekeeper’s Apprentice by Laurie R. King

After posting this review to my Twitter account, it was actually re-tweeted by Mary Russell, the main character in The Beekeeper’s Apprentice.  Not going to lie, I was geeking out a little bit 🙂

Book Review: The Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

I was actually very nervous about posting this review.  It the first review I had written where I didn’t particularly like the book.  It was the hardest review I have written yet.

This week I found out that Stephen King will be coming to Ohio in June!  He will be doing his book tour for the 3rd book in the Bill Hodges Trilogy.  Immediately after I heard this, I downloaded the audiobook of the first installment, Mr. Mercedes. This is only the second Stephen King book I have read, and I am quickly learning that I have been missing out.  King is a BRILLIANT writer.  I am only a about a quarter into this book, but I can already tell its going to be a homerun for me.


On Deck…

I will be attending my first ever book club on the 23rd of this month.  I am super excited to be apart of my first book club, however I am apprehensive about this book… Wish me luck.


How was your week?  What is on your agenda for this coming week?

Happy Reading 🙂
