Wrap Ups & Hauls

Weekly Wrap-Up: 10/31 – 11/6/16


Happy Sunday evening my bookish friends!

I’m happy to announce that I am finally back into my blogging groove!  After my horrible blogging month in October, I’m ready to take November by storm… We had a pretty low key Friday & Saturday, which means I got to work on some blog posts that I haven’t had the time to work on.  I am so excited to share my experience at the Books by the Banks book festival and my second Kids’ Corner feature.  Be on the look out for them later this week!

Let’s see what I got accomplished this past week…

  1. Ooh I’m really curious to see what you think of the Underground Railroad – I’ve had my eye on that book since it’s come out. I can’t really fit it into my TBR at the moment but nonetheless! I’m also pretty interested to see what you think of the Girl from Everywhere (mostly because I really like the cover so therefore the book has to be good, that’s how these things work, right?)

    Also – go you!! That looked like an awesome giveaway to win *claps*

    1. I’ve been wanting to read a historical fiction that revolves around the underground RR forever! I had high hopes for The Mapmaker’s Daughter, which I read earlier this year, but no dice.
      I’ve head really good things about The Girl from Everywhere and completely agree that the cover is on point 🙂

  2. I’m still trying to get through How to Hang a Witch. So busy and stressed. Like you said, I’m hoping November will be so much better for me. Especially in reading. I’ll be reading Miss Peregrine’s next!

  3. I’ve heard such mixed reviews on The Girl From Everywhere, it will be interesting to see what you think…always on my radar but still unsure. Also curious to hear your thoughts on The Underground Railroad 😉

  4. Welcome back to the regular groove! It feels good to be back in a routine, doesn’t it? I got a bit off last week, but I’m hoping my schedule will catch up again soon. I look forward to hearing what you think about The Underground Railroad. And congrats on winning the giveaway! So many fun new books.
