Weekly Wrap Up: August 21-27

A few exciting bookish things happened this week! My mom and I drove to Ikea yesterday – and we got new bookcases! I built them last night I will probably spend the day organizing them. I’m so excited that my new library room is finally coming together! Plus, I got a job at a Library so I’m going to be surrounded by books forever.

Books I Reviewed This Week:


Scarlet by Marissa Meyer

It is so difficult to fangirl while avoiding spoilers, but you can read my review here (as long as you’ve already read Cinder.)


Daughter of the Burning City by Amanda Foody

While I enjoyed this book and was super impressed by that it was Amanda Foody’s debut novel, it wasn’t quite what I expected from the book. It was really tough to determine what to write for this review, but you can see my thoughts here.

Books I Read This Week:


Cress by Marissa Meyer

I sense the book withdrawal and hangover coming, but these are just so good that I don’t care.

Currently Reading:


The Love Interest by Cale Dietrich

Fandom Series:

Sherlock Fandom Reads

I tackled Sherlock this week and suggested some interesting retellings as well as other mysteries that evoke a similar feeling to Sherlock.  Be sure to read that post here!

Other Bookish Posts:

Top 5 Tuesday – Retellings

This was pretty easy to figure out since last week I had just done a Fandom Reads post about Once Upon A Time, which you can read here or just check out my answers for this week’s Top 5 Tuesday here.

200 Followers – Thank You!

Seriously, I’m still so happy about this. I treasure each and every person who takes time out of their day to read the words I write. You don’t have to do that and I appreciate it so much. You can see that post here.

    The Love Interest was on my 2017 releases I’m excited for at the beginning of the year and I still haven’t got round to reading it! How are you liking it so far?

      I really like the premise (I mean who doesn’t like spies?) but so far I’m finding the dialogue difficult to connect to. It feels forced. I hope it finds its pacing/groove because I was really looking forward to reading it!

        That’s so disappointing! I love The Gallagher Girls series by Ally Carter and I was hoping for something with the same kind of theme. I’ll have to give it a read😊

    Oooooh, this looks like a fun week BECAUSE OF CRESS. I’m also super intrigued to see what you think of The Love Interest. It definitely was…well it wasn’t what I thought it was going to be but it still had some great moments. Hopefully it works out for you. 😀 Wonderful week and excited for this one. 😀

      I finished Cress and I can’t! Aaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. Haven’t really started Winter yet. Okay, okay… I’m going to continue with the Love Interest now. See if it gets more appealing. The dialogue is just really cringeworthy for me right now.

        I’ve been such a terrible reader. I’m struggling to make myself go back to the book because why should I when I could always just walk around listening to Winter? Love Interest, you don’t compare! Although I should probably be careful because I was driving home from the library when Wolf smelled Scarlet and he goes barreling down the street, grabs her, and it was so cute that I was hitting my steering wheel I was so excited and that’s probably not safe.

        Ahahahaha oh no! But I so understand. You can’t compare the two at all. But omigosh, I can’t even imagine. I can imagine the headline: Car Crash Due to Adorable Wolf Mutant And French Girl Hugging It Out. XD THE FEELS.

        Thankfully it wasn’t a main road or anything it was one turn before I got to my street. The feels derailed the car.

    Haha just found your blog and when I did chuckle when I saw you’d been to Ikea for book cases. That’s what I mainly go for too!

      Yeah, it’s not exactly close so I’ve only ever been a few times… but when my mom said I could redo the guest room as my library.. I knew I had to go to Ikea!
