The Sunday Post | Weekly Wrap Up

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

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

 

Friends and Other Liars, an adult novel that turned out to be way different than I expected. I give it 3/5 envelopes.

  

Chaotic Good, a YA that turned out SO MUCH BETTER THAN I COULD HAVE HOPED. 5/5 sewing needles!

This is where everything falls to shit for me because I never read what I plan to. I switch between reading my e-arcs in order of release date, so I can get the review as close to the release date as possible (my current method), and in order by their expiration date (my former method). How do you decide which arcs to read in which order?

These are books I’ve had on my bookshelf for a while that I’m working through slowly.

 

Big Little Lies I am LOVING the voice of! So snarky, so subtly funny.

Me Before You is cute so far! Can I say though that I hate this cover so much I almost never bought it? I’m not even sure why?

Each of these links back to an IG post, show these beautiful people some love!

           

I did two other posts this week:

Down the TBR Hole, in which I look at my Goodreads TBR and choose what to keep and what to pass on.

Let’s Talk About Tropes, Baby, in which I discuss my favorite and least favorite tropes.

 

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

This week FLEW by! Where did it even go? This Sunday post snuck up on me!

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

Both adult titles this week, which is fairly unusual for me!

Hearts Like Hers, a lesbian romance which is SO cute and has some kickass characters! I give it four of five coffee cups.

And The Beloveds, a novel I wanted to love way more. Female psychopath, gorgeous writing. Unfortunately it fell a little flat with some pacing issues and a lack of plot. I gave it three of five houses.

WELL this is where things really fall to shit for me because I NEVER read what I plan to read.

   

Big little Lies is obviously not an arc, but I’ve had it on my shelf for a bit and I’m trying to get those down!

           

I am trying to do “Off the Bookcase” posts, as well as arcs. This week I started The Girls by Emma Cline, but ultimately DNF’d at 38% because I don’t love the (in my opinion) overly flowery sentences and it taking way too long to get to the plot.

 

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

Nothing to report over here! The weather has been erratic, my kid even more so. I did get a lot of reading done this week! Though I got halfway through a book before deciding I didn’t want to read it, which is unfortunate.

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

The Wicked Deep by Shea Earnshaw

I was very lucky, I really enjoyed them both!

The Wicked Deep for me definitely had some less redeeming stuff, sadly it fell apart for me in the last 70 pages or so, but before that I LOVED it and the writing is stellar, so I give it four out of five witches.

 

The Precious Dreadful is AMAZING. I love it, start to finish. About a teenage girl with all kinds of problems who starts seeing a ghost and remembering a traumatic event from her childhood. Five of five ghosts!

WELL this is where things really fall to shit for me because I NEVER read what I plan to read. I did start This Love Story Will Self Destruct, like I’d planned to last week, but I got halfway through and hated the main character and couldn’t keep going. So here’s my plan, let’s see if I can stick to it:

   

Big little Lies is obviously not an arc, but I’ve had it on my shelf for a bit and I’m trying to get those down!

           

I am trying to do “Off the Bookcase” posts, as well as arcs. So this week I read We Were Liars, which came out in 2014 and has sat on my shelf more or less since then. Itttt is definitely an interesting one. I loved some things and hated others. Here’s my review!

I give it four of five boats.

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

Well! Last week I said things were quiet, so, naturally, this week things have been a mess. My son’s eleven, and (universe help me) going through puberty, and this week has been a fun mess of chaos and emotion. Here’s to seven years from now when he’s eighteen!

I only managed one review this week (click on the picture to see the review):

Dear Dwayne, With Love is SO funny. I love it so much. I’ll definitely be purchasing a copy for myself. About a woman in love with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

I have a tonnnn of arcs (what else is new?) which I am very excited about!

I did not get through as much as I wanted last week, sadly.

Here’s what I’m currently reading! Click the picture to see the Goodreads page!
  

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.

Reign the Earth, a YA fantasy which I haven’t read in a while and LOOK at that pretty cover!

           

I did a picture-heavy post about a few awesome indie bookstores in Denver! 

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!
