Happy Sunday bookworms!
To those of you in the U.S, happy Father’s Day! Hopefully everyone was able to celebrate with the important father(s) (and/or father figures) in their lives. For those of you who are missing their fathers/father figures for one reason or another, I hope you find comfort today.
This week I really worked on getting back into the swing of things after being gone for a little over a week. I was able to get a few posts up, read some amazing posts from my fellow book bloggers (a few of which I feature in this post), and finished two books.
Let’s see what I had going on this week, shall we?
*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, what I will be reading next, noteworthy posts around the bookish blogosphere, and any interesting bookish articles I came across.
*Book titles link to Goodreads
Recently finished reading:
» The Last Girl by Joe Hart
Feelings in a few words: liked the dystopian concept; slow start, but pacing gets better; not a fan of the “girl hate” for no reason; cliché at times; enjoyable read, but didn’t knock my socks off
*Full review to come
» The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett
Feelings in a few words: enchanting; subtle “magic”; wonderful character growth; friendship; recommend to nature & animal lovers; wanted a little more from the ending
