Weekly Recap # 6: Week of 6/18-6/24
It’s time for another weekly recap post of all things happening on and off the blog. This week I’ll be linking to the Sunday Post, which is hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer and to Stacking the Shelves, which is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews.
Hi everyone! I hope you’ve all had a wonderful week. Mine was interesting, mainly because my son was at his grandmother’s house all week and my husband was out of town for work, so I was home alone the entire week. I thought for sure that meant I would get a ton of reading done, but somehow that didn’t happen. I finished The Inexplicable Logic of My Life, which I really enjoyed, and got a pretty good start on A Conjuring of Light, which is absolutely fantastic so far, but that was pretty much it. I don’t even know where the rest of my week went, haha! I did watch Moana on Netflix and finished Season 5 of Orange is the New Black, which I have very mixed feelings about. Oh and I’ve been having issues with some people not being able to comment on my blog posts so I’ve been trying to resolve that. It’s times like that when I wish I was a lot more computer savvy than I am. I feel a little helpless right now waiting for someone else to help me. A huge thanks though to those who have contacted me and let me know there was a problem. Otherwise, I would have just assumed it was a light traffic week on the blog and been oblivious that there was a problem.
This week I’m hoping to finish A Conjuring of Light and then move on to a couple of ARCs that I need to review soon. ACOL is over 600 pages long though so we’ll see how that goes.
Last week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic really got me thinking about how many series I’ve started but not yet completed, so my big goal for the summer is to finish up a couple of lingering series so that I can move on to the ones I’ve been meaning to read for ages. Once I finish ACOL, which wraps up the Shades of Magic series, I plan to move on to A Court of Wings and Ruin to finish out that series, and then move on to The Illuminae Files. Somewhere in there or maybe in August, I also need to finish up The Lunar Chronicles. So yeah, probably ambitious goals for me but I feel pretty good about making them happen.
Well, that’s pretty much it for me. Have a great week, everyone!

WHAT I’M READING THIS WEEK
STACKING THE SHELVES
I loved Moana, enjoy your new books!
Yeah, I thought Moana was great too. The ending was amazing.
Wow a week alone sounds lovely. Anytime I think I will get a lot of reading done I never do. I got Girl in Snow too – Hope we both enjoy it! Have a great week!
It really was nice. I love my husband and son dearly but I seriously cannot remember the last time I had the house all to myself. It had probably been years. Oh yay, I hope we both enjoy Girl in Snow too. I’m not entirely sure what to expect with that one, but it was sent to me because it’s supposed to be similar to some other thrillers that I’ve enjoyed. We’ll see how it goes 🙂 You have a great week too!
I have also sta led Gemina last week! But haven’t got a nice photo yet, so I’m not flaunting it, haha 😀
And you’re reading some good ones there! Have a nice reading week 🙂
Thanks, hope you have a great reading week too!
I’ll b very anxious to see what you think of Hello, Sunshine since I really liked Eight Hundred grapes by the same author. This one sounds pretty different from that so I’m not sure. 🙂 And yay for Gemina- hope you love it! I thought it was outstanding.
It’s funny you say that. This will actually be my second time trying to start Hello Sunshine. The first time I started, I just couldn’t get into it. I’m such a mood reader that I’m just hoping I wasn’t in the mood at the time and that I’ll do better this time. We’ll see how it goes!
Time alone is always a treat. I usually bake the foods none of them will eat, watch sappy shows and make coffee all day long..LOL Glad you binged and had a good time.
Haha, that pretty well describes much of my week. Maybe throw a few glasses of wine in there for the evenings 🙂
Yes, there are a few series that I really need to finish. And some I need to start – but all the books are out, so there’s that! I’ve only read A Darker Shade of Magic – so I need to get and read the other two. I JUST finished The Raven King last week so I’m finished there! 🙂
I sometimes like waiting for most of the books in a series to come out before I start reading. That way I can binge read and don’t have to wait so long to find out what happens next. A Darker Shade of Magic was excellent and I think the other two books are just as good, if not even better than ADSOM. I thought A Conjuring of Light would take me most of this week to finish up and it was so good that I stayed up really late last night and practically inhaled it.
Ahhh…time alone! Heavenly. It helps you appreciate them that much more 🙂 Nice to get some reading and TV in. Hope you have a great week 🙂

Yes, alone time is so rare in my house that I really do cherish it when I get it. Hope you have a great week too!
Oh no! I’m kind of glad I wasn’t the only one who experienced some issues with commenting on your blog but I’m sorry it was a slow sort of week because of that.
I can’t wait to see what you think of ACOWAR and I’m definitely picking up a Schwab soon, okay! Promise!
I’m busy catching up (again) on all I’ve missed over the past week or so! Hope you’ve had a good one.
I think everything with the blog is finally (hopefully!) resolved. Thank goodness for people who are more technology savvy than I am, haha. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
