Happy Sunday bookworms!
I hope everyone had a lovely weekend. We had a low key weekend, which is much appreciated as our next two weeks are going to be a little hectic with house guests & leaving for vacation. I honestly cannot believe we are now in the last week of June! Why must the summer fly by, while the winter drags on forever?
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.

Recently finished reading:
» North of Here by Laurel Saville
Feelings in a few words: portrayal of loss & grief; darker than anticipated; cult-like group well done; not a fan of the convenient ending in regards to the romance; decent read
» Anne of the Island by L.M. Montgomery
Feelings in a few words: better than the second book; loved Anne’s college escapades; Patty’s Place just as beloved as Green Gables; new friend Phil welcome addition; the loss of an old friend; Gilbert!
» The Girl Who Drank the Moon by Kelly Barnhill
Feelings in a few words: magic; good plot line; swap monster, tiny dragon & crow are loveable side-kicks and comedic relief; some aspects needed more development; climax felt rushed; random, but it works; would make a good movie
