Weekly Wrap Up: June 12-18

First, I want to wish everyone a Happy Father’s Day! Even though I don’t get to spend today with my dad or grandpa, I hope some of you are spending time with family. (Don’t worry about me, I get to see mine in just under three weeks. It’s crazy, I only have twenty days left of my service and when I came here it seemed like 27 months would take so long!) This week I also came up with a tag and a book bingo that I want to do, I just need to decide when I’m going to post them. I’m tempted to do bookstagram photos as I read the books that relate to the book bingo, and I can’t do that until I get home – so you guys may have to wait a little while for that one. But without further ado, here’s my week in books and posts!

Books I Reviewed This Week:

This week I talked about the books that students from Mahoutokoro might enjoy. We learn so little about the Wizarding School that makes its home in Japan – but I always wanted to learn more. Be sure to read that post here!

Other Bookish Posts:

I loved taking part in Shanah’s Top 5 Tuesday post because who doesn’t like to fangirl about book boyfriends? You can read my post here!

Writing this post made me realize just how much I’ve been reading this read. It’s crazy but I love it! Check out my post here!

I reached my first 100 followers this week, so I wrote a thank you post for it. I’m still so honoured that 100 people liked my blog and reviews enough to follow me!


What books did you guys read this week, any new favourites? I’d love to get more recommendations as if my TBR pile isn’t big enough already! What Wizarding School do you think I’ll be featuring next week? Any reads on your summer TBR? Let me know in the comments below!
