Hello hello hello! How is everyone this Sunday evening? It is unbearably hot here in Ohio! The kind where you go outside and immediately start sweating. It really is oppressive.
Let’s see how fared this week, shall we?
*Weekly wrap-up is a little update I do every Sunday that features what I had going on that week on the blog, bookish happenings for the week, what I am reading, what I currently finished reading, and what I have on deck to read next.
This week on the blog:
I really loved writing this post. This isn’t really a book review, but more about what I took away from Fangirl.
I got some book mail from Blogging For Books. I am very excited to read The Book of Esther because from what I understand there is a lot of Jewish culture included. I LOVE to learn about different cultures and religions through fiction.
Introducing the Bellbrook Book Barn! That’s right, the moment you all have been waiting for. My little free library is officially up and running!!! I still have to do some finishing touches, like paint the post and do some landscaping, but I am very happy with how it turned out!
Side Note: I would like to note that I dug the 3 foot hole for the post MYSELF! That’s right, I’m officially a badass. It only took me 1.5 hours in the 95º heat. I had to go through tree roots, clay, and rock, but I did it… and I have the sunburn and blisters to prove it!
A small price to pay for literacy!
Recently finished reading:
Nothing 😦 I was so busy working on my little library, that I am still working on the books I was reading last Sunday. Boo for slow reading weeks.
I am now 50% through The Raven King and I have a feeling all hell is about to break loose. Some crazy things have been happening… I think I have been dragging my feet through this book because I don’t want The Raven Cycle to end 😦
I am 70% through this one and am hoping to finish it tonight. I went into this book blind since I didn’t read the synopsis beforehand (I had never done this before) and it is not what I was expecting at all. This book is unlike any book I’ve ever read before. I really am enjoying the hodgepodge of characters within this book. I am also fascinated with the setting, Coney Island in 1904.
I am super excited to read this since I have been seeing a lot of great reviews for it!
My friend IRL recently finished this one and can’t stop singing its praises. Since I don’t get many recommendations from people IRL, I am going to give this one a go. I haven’t read a good YA contemporary this year, so I have high hopes for this book.
I am reading Starflight because the author, Melissa Landers, is going to be attending Books by the Banks in October. I think I have only read two science fiction books this year, so I am looking forward to further exploring this genre.
