Weekly Wrap-Up 5/28/12

Posted May 28, 2012 by Lori in Books / 0 Comments Tags:

Happy Memorial Day! I hope you are having a great holiday weekend, if you are celebrating. We are spending a relaxing day with family. I’ve also discovered that with this extra day off, I’m totally off schedule. But I’ll catch up, perhaps. And if not, oh well. Here’s what happened last week, if you missed it, and some of the stuff coming up later this week.

Last Week

Posts

Tuesday’s post was all about the Top Ten Blogs/Sites You Visit That Aren’t Book Related. I enjoyed putting my list together and ended up with a large focus on food blogs. I wasn’t all that surprised.

On Wednesday I posted my review of Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. I highly enjoyed the book and gave it 5 stars. It’s a perfect YA contemporary romance to read during the summer if you’re looking for a fun, fast read with great characters.

Feature and Follow this week was an activity instead of a question. We were told to Dream Cast our current read. Since I wasn’t very far into my new book, I cast Anna and the French Kiss. Check out my chosen cast if you haven’t seen it already and let me know what you think!

I also wrote up a post about some of the summer movies coming out and which ones I was looking forward to. At the top of my list? Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and Snow White and the Huntsman. What are your can’t wait for summer movies?

Books

Embarrassingly, I only got through one book this week. I finished Anna and the French Kiss and then lost a bit of steam. I’m disappointed because now I have to return a stack of books to the library completely unread. I hate that!

This Week

Posts

I’ve got some fun things coming up this week. First, I have a post coming up all about New June Releases. There are some really great books to look forward to next month and with school coming to an end, hopefully some time to read will open up around here!

Top Ten Tuesday has another great topic this week. You’ll find out which books are my choices for the Top Ten Books Written In The Past 10 Years That I Hope People Are Still Reading In 30 Years.

On Wednesday, my review for Timepiece by Myra McEntire will be posted. I loved this book, love the series, and am so excited that Infinityglass was finally picked up and should be printed next year!

And don’t miss Friday’s post. I’ll be participating in the My Favorite Reads Giveaway Hop! The Giveaway will run from Friday through Wednesday and I’ll be giving away a book of the readers choice from a list of my favorite reads. It’ll be fun, so be sure to come back!

Books

I’m finishing up City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare right now. Then next on my list is Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein and Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead.

From the library I borrowed: Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher and Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins. I bought Soul Screamers Vol. 1 by Rachel Vincent. I received The Next Best Thing by Jennifer Weiner from Simon and Schuster through Netgalley (Thank you!)  and I am so excited to read it. I love Jennifer Weiner!

Okay, that’s all I’ve got for this weekly wrap-up. Stick around for the week and don’t forget to enter the giveaway on Friday! I promise they’ll be a good book to win!
