You know how in last week’s wrap-up post I said I would be back with a vengeance this week? Yeah, not so much. October is the busiest month for my family. This week was both my kid’s birthdays, so we had a big Halloween themed birthday party for them on Friday evening. Saturday we had my son’s last football game of the regular season, now they move into the playoffs as the first seed. Then Saturday evening we had two different parties to attend. Today is my daughter’s 3rd birthday, so we are surprising her by taking her to Disney on Ice this evening. Not that any of this would interest anyone, but I am just trying to
make excuses justify my lack of blogging for the past two weeks. I just need to accept the fact that for the month of October, the blog has to be put on the back burner. Easier said than done.
*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.
The week on the blog:
Pitiful right? One measly post. This is seriously sad. I AM working on blog posts, I promise. I am currently working on my BBTB book festival post, a kids’ corner feature, AND 8 book reviews. I just need more hours in the day lol
Nada. Nothing. Zip. Zilch.
((Insert crickets chirping here))
Recently finished reading:
Way to break my heart Patrick Ness… or should I blame Siobhan Dowd? I had a pit in my stomach the entire time I was reading A Monster Calls. What a wonderful book about grief and loss.
I struggled with this book in the beginning, HOWEVER once things started to pick up, I was hooked. I CANNOT believe this book was written in the 1950s… This book is timeless, and the themes are still very relevant today.
First timer here! I wish I would have read this when I was younger. I loved the 2005 movie adaptation, and must say I am impressed how true the movie is to the book, at least thus far. I am a little over 50% through.
I will be starting The Underground Railroad this evening. I have been looking forward to this one ever since I was approved for an ARC via NetGalley.
I’m not sure if I will be able to squeeze another book in before November or not. I haven’t decided my November TBR yet, but I do know I will be reading only NetGalley ARCs in the month of November.
How was your week?
