The Sunday Post | Weekly Wrap-Up

I’m linking up with The Sunday Post hosted by Kimberly @Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

Hey y’all! Things around here have been insanely quiet of late. It’s kinda nice, actually.

I’m excited to watch the new season of Grace and Frankie when I have some time, and I just binged The End of the F***ing World, which was cute and funny IF you like really dark, weird stuff, which I do.

In bookish news, I am planning a trip to Denver, (I live about an hour away) to do a post about awesome indie bookstores there!

I did two book reviews this week! (click on the picture to see the review):

 

Bookish Boyfriends Between You and Me

Bookish Boyfriends is SO effing cute. A narrator in love with boys in books, but what really stands out is some AMAZING girl friendships.

Between Me and You is a story about a marriage, told from the perspectives of both wife and husband, though one is telling the story forward and one backward.

I really liked this week, reading one YA, one adult novel, and one poetry collection. I would love to keep this up, and think it may be what I shoot for for the future!

I have a tonnnn of arcs (what else is new?) which I am very excited about! Here’s what I’m currently reading! Click the picture to see the Goodreads page!

Dear Dwayne, With Love. I’m not going to lie to you, I totally judged this book by the cover and I want to love it. I am really, really hoping for no fat shaming, though the book is (at least partially) about a woman who tries to lose weight.

This Love Story Will Self-Destruct. How cute is that title?! Apparently it’s like a re-imagined When Harry Met Sally? And a NA title, which I’d like to read more of this year.

           

 

I’m not going to do a whole post on this, but I also read Wild Nights, a poetry collection this week. The collection is made up of five sections and five female poets, ranging from Sappho in ancient times to Edna St. Vincent Millay, a much more modern poet. You can click the picture to see my review on GoodReads.

I hope everyone is having an incredible week, and I can’t wait to read your posts!

Hey y’all! I’m trying to think of what’s been going on around here andddd pretty much nothing! I’m done with school and things are easy and kinda delightful. I’ve been reading a ton so yay.

Also I dyed my hair and I’m kind of living for it! So fun and so red yesssss.

I did two book reviews this week! (click on the picture to see the review):

Time Bomb Novel See All the Stars by Kit Frick

Time Bomb by Joelle Charbonneau, a YA about and from the perspective of six kids stuck in their high school, where bombs are going off.

And See All the Stars, a YA with alternating timelines, about a girl who has now lost all of her friends/boyfriend in a mystery incident.

I liked both of these quite a bit more than I expected! (Not that I actively expected bad things, but they were both ones I thought could go either way.)

I have a tonnnn of arcs (what else is new?) which I am very excited about! Here’s what I’m currently reading! Click the picture to see the Goodreads page!

  

Bookish Boyfriends is an arc I’m aboouuuttt halfway through! And I love it. I don’t feel it has nearly enough hype. It’s SO fun, and very well-written. Just like adorable, solid fun.

The Girl and the Grove I’ve only just started. I’m really excited! The author is a really awesome guy so I’m hoping the book is great!

Leven Thumps #1 is not an arc, it came out many years ago, but I’ve decided to start adding the books my kiddo and I are reading together! This one is really fun so far at about 100 pages in, but maybe written too advanced for a typical MG reader, just imo.

           

I did one other post, Way Hyped Books that I STILL HAVEN’T READ. These aren’t even books from last year? But from like several years now where I have not read the things I’d like to.

books

I’m not going to do a whole blog post on this one, but I feel like it definitely needs a mention! I read this book of poetry this week, also. In about an hour! Not just because it’s easy to get through, which it is, but I also just really adored it. I will definitely go buy a physical copy and read it more than once.

The Witch Doesn't Burn in this One

I hope everyone is having an incredible week, and I can’t wait to read your posts!

Hey y’all! A great week at school. So much fun stuff. Watched a documentary about cannibals and got to talk about cultural relativism, which is a blast. Also lots and lots of math, which can suck it. Glad to find some time to read and get out of that head space.

I did one review! (click on the picture to see the review):

The Taxonomy of Love is SO EFFING CUTE. A story about a boy with Tourette Syndrome working his way through life using taxonomies and trying to label things neatly. So adorable.

A Taxonomy of Love

I’ve received quite a lot of book mail recently, which I am ecstatic about! I haven’t taken pictures of all of them quite yet, but here’s one I took that I am SO excited about (the pic is a little blurry because due to issues, this is a screenshot of the original image):

HOW CUTE IS THIS BOOK? I could not possible love more the juxtaposition of the title and the cutesy look. I cannot wait to dive into this one, and I think it may be the next one I do. So look for that review coming up!

I hope everyone’s having a great week, and I can’t wait to read your book!

By the way, my fellow book bloggers!

For some reason, I am not able to comment on .wordpress or .blogspot blogs!! I have no idea why, and if you have any ideas please let me know! But please know I always read your weekly updates and love them, even if for whatever dumb reason I can’t comment.

Hey y’all! So, wow. It has been dead around here, right? I have had an INSANE few months. Some really rough mental health stuff which I know I’ve spoken about a little, work problems, and then I just headed into my last semester of college! So things have been crazy, and I know the blog took an unscheduled hiatus because of it.

But I’m so glad to be back! I have a great schedule going and I’m so, so excited.

I did one review! (click on the picture to see the review):

The Hollow Girl by Hillary Monahan is definitely an interesting one, and one I wouldn’t recommend to everyone though I enjoyed it. A horror about a girl taking revenge on her rapist.

I also did a review a bit back that you should definitely check out if you haven’t! When I Cast Your Shadow is SO weird and so fun and I really adored it.

The Hollow Girl by Hillary Monohan  When I Cast Your Shadow by Sarah Porter

I have quite a few arcs, and I’m thinking about trying to be approved for a few adult titles soon! I also received some GORGEOUS books in the mail that I cannottttt wait to photograph!

I hope everyone is having an incredible week, and I can’t wait to read your posts!

The Sunday Post | Weekly Wrap-Up #7

I’m linking up with The Sunday Post hosted by Kimberly @Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

Hey y’all! I’ve skipped the last few of these, I know. I’m doing so well though, and I’m getting back in my routine!

I managed two reviews this week! (click on the picture to see the review):

Starfish by Akemi Dawn Bowman, which is one of my favorite books of the year by far!

And Sunshine is Forever by Kyle T. Cowan, which I had mixed feelings about.

It was really interesting that I chose these two, because I’ve been struggling so much with my own mental health and that is a huge factor in both of these novels. Maybe I did it subconsciously, haha.

Starfish Novel Sunshine is Forever novel

I have all the ARCs. I never seem to get really into the ones I think I’m going to! I was so stoked for Mask of Shadows, and about 100 pages in and I’m still not enamored of it. But I have a bunch to choose from.

These Things I've Done by Rebecca Phillips

In really REALLY exciting news, I’m part of the blog tour for Rebecca Phillips’ These Things I’ve Done, which I reviewed here. So there will be a Q&A with Rebecca here on August Fourth! I hope you all come see. Her answers are as brilliant and insightful as I knew they would be!

I hope everyone is having an incredible week, and I can’t wait to read your posts!
