Ugh! I know! I’ve been a day late two weeks in a row! I swear it’s not going to become a habit….
Anyway, welcome to my weekly Sunday Wrap-Up. Here you’ll find what I’ve been up to this week: An overview of my posts, My weekly book haul, and what to expect for the upcoming week. Enjoy 🙂
This week has been completely ridiculous…. like ostrich hiding it’s head in the sand ridiculous….pigs flying and hell freezing over ridiculous… purple unicorns and pink….well, you get the point.
I participated in two different community events that came to a close this week. I’ll talk about the second one later, but the first one was a Pocket Letter exchange put together by Andi @ Andi’s ABCs.
My pocket letter partner was Emily at Em’s Reading Room and while I haven’t gotten my letter from her yet, I’m really excited about the one I put together for her:-)
Posts from this Week:
As busy as I felt like this week was, I actually didn’t post that much… Here’s what you might’ve missed this week:
I don’t read a lot of fairy books, so this was somewhat new for me, but I absolutely loved this book! I read it during a break from the Lux series, so it was hard to concentrate at first, but I was able to dive in quickly and really enjoy it! As soon as I’m finished with Lux, I will be reading the next book in this series!
In continuing my review series of the Lux books, I decided to go a more traditional route with Opal. As with the other books, I absolutely loved this novel and am getting even more excited for Oblivion on December 1st!
This was a totally new kind of blitz for me, as there was no set schedule. My plan was to post my “giving” post on Thanksgiving, but we all make plans…and rarely do they pan out. Anyway, in this blitz, I got to showcase a cause that is near and dear to my heart, so be sure to check it out!
Are you getting sick of me talking about the Lux series yet? I sure hope not, because I had a lot of fun writing this post! There are about 980345308 reasons to love Origin. I’m pretty sure it’s my favorite out of all the Lux books thus far. I somehow managed to pare this review down to my top FIVE reasons it earned my love.
This is that second community event I hinted at earlier. This month, I got to participate in the first ever “Guest of the Month Club” event, hosted by Emily at Emily Reads Everything. This month’s topic was “Beyond the Blog” and my partner was Maggie at The Novel Orange. You can read all about her life beyond the blog here:-)
This Week’s Book Haul:
Be proud of me. Other than review books on my Kindle, I actually managed NOT to acquire any new books this week! I have a somewhat unhealthy book collecting habit and my house/car/life is starting to look like this:
Soooooo I’ve started (like, barely started) to go through all the books that are not on my shelves (somewhere around 300 or so) and separating them into Must keep, probably keep, and (grudgingly) donate piles. The plus side? I’m rediscovering books that I forgot I had. So, I guess that’s kindof like getting new books, right?
Post of the Week:
As I told you earlier, I have a guest post on my blog this week from Maggie at The Novel Orange. But, guess what? She has a guest post from me on her blog too! Ever wonder what I do outside of my blog? Probably not….but if you do, you can find out here! Hint: Here’s a picture of my life beyond the blog…..
That’s all for now!
