Hello my bookish friends!
I am in my final countdown for the Books by the Banks book festival that is taking place this coming weekend on the 15th. I have been looking forward to attending my first book festival for months now, and it’s hard to believe it is almost here. I still have 3 books that I would like to read before Saturday, so I may be scarce around the blogosphere this week. I know, I know, what will you all do without me? Patience my friends. I promise I will be back with a vengeance next week.
*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, and what I will be reading next.
This week on the blog:
Like I mentioned, the Books by the Banks book festival is this coming weekend. If you are curious about which authors will be attending, you can view the author lineup here. A few of my most anticipated authors are Maggie Stiefvater, Jenny Lawson, Tiffany McDaniel, and Mindy McGinnis. They finally posted the author panel schedule, and I am really looking forward to hearing some great panels.
Recently finished reading:
*Actually 3.5 stars
I don’t typically read “fluffy books,” but I did find this book enjoyable. I’ve never read a book that centers around food/cooking, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
I don’t have a rating for this book just yet. I definitely enjoyed this book, but there were also a few issues. I need to sit down and start my review so I can hash out my feelings.
Another book by an author attending the BBTB book festival. I had requested this book from the library, but since it came out on September 20th, I wasn’t hopeful that it was going to come in before the event. Surprisingly enough, it came in this week. From the very first line, I was hooked. This book completely side swiped me… It is definitely going on my list of favorite reads of 2016!
I am about 40% through this one and must say that I am very impressed thus far. Unlike other books in the thriller/suspense genre that I’ve read this year, this book has maintained my attention from the start.
My second Neil Gaiman book is turning out to be just as enjoyable as the first! This is such a wonderful fairytale.
Since She Went Away by David Bell
The New Neighbor by Leah Stewart
I am really going to try and squeeze these two in this week, but will be happy to at least get one read.
How was your week?
