Weekly Wrap-Up 5/14/12

0 COMMENTS • This post is filed under: Books

It was a busy week last week around here! I’ve put together a recap incase you missed anything and a look at what will be coming up this week as well. Thanks to everyone who entered my giveaway. I’ll post the winner soon. And Hello! to all my new followers! I hope you all had a great Mother’s Day Weekend and are ready for Monday! Here we go.

Last Week


The week started off with a giveaway! The Children’s Book Week Giveaway Hop was last week and it was my first giveaway. I think I’ll have to do more because people aren’t lying when they say giving away books is a fun!

Top Ten Tuesday this week was Favorite Quotes from Books. It was a pretty great topic, if you ask me. I had a hard time limiting my choices to ten.

I posted reviews of The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin and Wonder by R.J. Palacio. I loved these books and definitely recommend that you read them if you haven’t already.

Feature and Follow on Friday was a great lead in for Mother’s Day weekend. The question was about books with good mother/child relationships. I had a hard time coming up with one and wish there could be more moms present in current YA novels.


I finished The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin and Timepiece by Myra McEntire. If you haven’t read the Hourglass yet, do it. It’s the first in the series, Timepiece is second and comes out June 12th, and it’s the best time travel series I’ve read in a really long time.

This Week


I’ll be announcing the winner of the Children’s Book Week Giveaway Hop later today! It’s my first giveaway, so I’m excited to finally be able to give out a book!

Top Ten Tuesday is all about which authors I’d like to see on a reality show, and which show. It’ll be a tough topic for me because I haven’t watched reality TV since college. But it’ll be interesting, at least, so be sure to check both here and The Broke and The Bookish for everyone’s Tuesday posts.ci

I’ll be posting my review for Timepiece later this week and hopefully one for Scarlet by A.C. Gaughen. 


Next up on the TBR list is: finishing The Iron King by Julie Kagawa, then starting Shatter Me and Kill Me Softly.

I picked up City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare, The Hunt by Andrew Fukuda, and Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins all from the library this week. I’m really excited about them, but I have a few books I need to read before I can get to them.

Awakening by Karice Bolton and Entangled by Nikki Jefford were free last week on Kindle, so I went ahead and got them both as well. Otherwise, that’s it for any new books for me.

I hope you all had a great week and have many fun things to look forward to this week!
