Happy Sunday bookworms!
Another busy week has come and gone. I’ve got to admit, this fall is kicking my butt! Fall is always such a stressful season for me, so I really should not be surprised.
Speaking of Fall, where the hell is the Fall weather? It was 90°F here today. Get with it Mother nature!
Let’s see what I’ve been reading, shall we?
*Bookish 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 blogisphere, and any interesting bookish articles I came across.
Recently Finished Reading:
» Let’s Pretend This Never Happened by Jenny Lawson
Jenny Lawson’s humor is definitely not going to be for everyone, but it is definitely for me.
» The Queen of Sorrow (Queens of Renthia #3) by Sarah Beth Durst
While I still think the first book in this series was by far the best, I enjoyed this book more than the second. Such a unique world & magic system.
» Wintersmith (Tiffany Aching #3) by Terry Pratchett
I absolutely adore Tiffany Aching & the Wee Free Men! This is a perfect series to pick up around the fall/Halloween time.
» I’d Rather Be Reading: The Delights and Dilemias of the Reading Life by Anne Bogel
This was a delightful little memoir/collection of essays about Anne’s reading life. The only thing that would have made this book better would be recommended reading lists.
» Where the Light Enters (The Gilded Hour #2) by Sara Donati
» Heroine by Mindy McGinnis
Status: Just starting
What Am I Reading Next?:
» Maybe He Just Likes You by Barbara Dee
Barbara Dee explores the subject of #MeToo for the middle grade audience in this heart-wrenching—and ultimately uplifting—novel about experiencing harassment and unwanted attention from classmates.
For seventh grader Mila, it starts with an unwanted hug on the school blacktop.
The next day, it’s another hug. A smirk. Comments. It all feels…weird. According to her friend Zara, Mila is being immature, overreacting. Doesn’t she know what flirting looks like?
But it keeps happening, despite Mila’s protests. On the bus, in the halls. Even during band practice-the one time Mila could always escape to her “blue-sky” feeling. It seems like the boys are EVERYWHERE. And it doesn’t feel like flirting–so what is it?
Mila starts to gain confidence when she enrolls in karate class. But her friends still don’t understand why Mila is making such a big deal about the boys’ attention. When Mila is finally pushed too far, she realizes she can’t battle this on her own–and finds help in some unexpected places.
From the author of STAR-CROSSED, HALFWAY NORMAL and EVERYTHING I KNOW ABOUT YOU comes this timely story of a middle school girl standing up and finding her voice.
» Tunnel of Bones (Cassidy Blake #2) by Victoria Schwab
Trouble is haunting Cassidy Blake . . . even more than usual.
She (plus her ghost best friend, Jacob, of course) are in Paris, where Cass’s parents are filming their TV show about the world’s most haunted cities. Sure, it’s fun eating croissants and seeing the Eiffel Tower, but there’s true ghostly danger lurking beneath Paris, in the creepy underground Catacombs.
When Cass accidentally awakens a frighteningly strong spirit, she must rely on her still-growing skills as a ghosthunter — and turn to friends both old and new to help her unravel a mystery. But time is running out, and the spirit is only growing stronger.
And if Cass fails, the force she’s unleashed could haunt the city forever.
