Weekly Recap #110: Week of 6/23 – 6/29


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.

I don’t have much of anything exciting to talk about this week.  I made it through my first post-vacation week even though it felt like the longest week ever, lol.  Hopefully next week will be better because by the end of this week, I was taking accidental naps almost as soon as I got home from work everyday.

Between watching the Women’s World Cup Soccer matches and the Democratic debates this week, I didn’t get nearly as much reading done as I had planned to.  I finished two books, The Chosen and The Last Collection, which I’ll be reviewing this week, and I also just finished this week’s reading for the Iron Throne readalong.  By this time next week, we’ll actually be finishing the first book so that’s exciting.  This week I’m excited about reading The Bookish Life of Nina Hill and Lock Every Door. These are two highly anticipated reads for me, so I have high hopes for them of them.

Life continues to go well with our new puppy. He is settling in very well and is already very attached to my son, which is actually what I was hoping would happen.  I just signed Winston up for puppy class, starting in July so that should be fun too.

I’m drawing a blank about the rest of my week, so I’m going to cut it short.  Have a great week, everyone!

      I didn’t realize Emma Donoghue had a new one coming out either. I just happened to stumble upon it on Netgalley and was so excited to actually get approved for it.

    This is so great that the puppy took a liking to your son Suzanne! And I see you added The Poppy War! I loved it 😉

      I started Lock Every Door yesterday and I’m already about 3/4 of the way done with it. I love Sager’s books.

    I’ve yet to finish a Kelley Armstrong novel. I always hoped I could get into her Otherworld series but it is so daunting with the number of books in the series. I also have Sea of Shadows sitting on my shelf TBR :/

    That Totally Random is funny. 🙂

    Glad Winston is settling down so well – my mother has been having problems with her poodle puppy, so I know it doesn’t always go according to plan… I must look out for the Kelley Armstrong and Emma Donoghue books – they are both authors I highly respect. Have a great week, Suzanne:)

      Thanks. Yes, we’ve been really lucky with the puppy so far so I’m hoping our good luck will continue. I love Emma Donoghue’s books and look forward to diving in to her latest.

    Lol! I love your totally random pic.
    Sometimes my days blur into one, Suzanne, because life isn’t always exiting and action-packed either. Lol!
    I’m glad to hear the new puppy is working out well and the growing relationship with your son and puppy is good.
    Hope you have a great week and enjoy your reads.

    Here’s my Sunday Post

    Aw, I’m glad the puppy is settling in well and he’s attaching himself to your son. That’s too cute. I’m so curious about Nina Hill, so I hope that’s a great read!

    If I would have heard of the Iron Throne readalong just a little bit earlier than I did, I would have participated. I haven’t yet read the books. Maybe one day.

    I missed that you got a puppy, but that’s so great! I love the name Winston 🙂 We hope to get a puppy sometime soon as well.
    I relate to the accidental naps, haha 😉 Hope this week will go better!
    Wilder Girls and The Poppy War are on my TBR too, hope you’ll enjoy them!

    That’s so sweet that your puppy is bonding with your son. I hope you’ve been able to get some better rest this week so far, Suzanne. I can totally relate to that. Happy reading!
