Hey everyone! 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.
We had a change in our weather pattern this week so it has felt like fall most days. While I’m not ready for summer to leave us quite yet, the cooler weather did make for some lovely outside reading time for me. I got two more books read than I had originally planned to, so yay! I’ve been working on my Summer TBR Wipeout challenge and finally, after nearly a year of them sitting on my TBR, I managed to get Heartless and Caraval read. I adored Heartless and had mixed feelings about Caraval, but for those interested, reviews should be up sometime soon. I also read an ARC of The ReadyMade Thief, which was another book that was just okay for me. It was kind of like The DaVinci Code with a YA protagonist, but there was so much going on in the plot that seemed unnecessary, my interest kept waning. I pushed through because I wanted to know why things were happening and who was ultimately responsible, but overall it just wasn’t a good read for me. I doubt I’ll be writing anything more than what I just did on it.
See, lots of reading this week. I also read an ARC of Emma in the Night by Wendy Walker. I had a few issues with pacing at the beginning, but ultimately ended up devouring this book in a day. I hope to have this review posted tomorrow. Lastly, I also started (and hope to finish it today!) a YA thriller called Pandora Project. I’ll be participating in my very first blog tour this Friday with a review of this one, so I’m excited about that. 🙂
Beyond that it has just been work as usual. I do have a vacation coming up at the end of this month. I haven’t decided if I’m going anywhere or not though. I just needed to use up some leave before I lose it, so it may just end up being a Stay-Cation where I read and relax at home alone for a few days.
Since there’s not much on TV in the way of new shows right now (aside from Game of Thrones, which I love), I’ve been on Netflix every night binge watching the series, Shameless. It’s an addictive series that definitely lives up to its name. I think my mouth hangs open in disbelief most of the time while I’m watching, lol. William H. Macy is brilliant in it though.
Oh well, that’s pretty much it for me. Have a great week, everyone!
