Weekly Wrap Up – March 2 – 8

We lost an hour of sleep – I blame that for my shitty mood right now lol. This week was a roller coaster. Some really amazing things happened (which I can’t talk about quite yet) and some really crappy things happened. A lot is up in the air right now. Not to mention it was a week filled with so much work…… productive and amazing, yet tiring. Basically, what I’m saying is that I want to tell you everything – but I can’t! And I know that makes you want to know more. Soon – soon. Thankfully through all the chaos this week, I finished a book! And it was just what I needed!

BOOKS I FINISHED:

truth or beard

Truth Or Beard by Penny Reid was the perfect book for what I needed at the moment. This had me laughing, swooning, and forgetting about the chaos of my life. I loved the characters SO much! I wish that the Winston brothers were real people. They sound like just the group I want to hang out with! A friend of mine has been telling me to read this book for so long (yes Robin, I loved it! But you already knew that lol) and I’m glad that I picked this up when my life needed a pick me up. It was perfect! Review to come soon 🙂

BOOKS I’M CURRENTLY READING:

The Republic of Thieves by Scott Lynch shows up for the third week in a row…… I’m a failure lol! This book is amazing – don’t get me wrong! I’m loving it just as much as the first and second books. But it’s slowing down a bit and my chaotic life won’t let me focus on it the way that I should be. I don’t think I’m in the right head space for it right now. I plan to chip away at it but my brain can’t dedicate 100% of my focus on it right now.

So, I hope to take a break from it and start The House in the Cerulean Sea by TJ Klune. Magic, islands, a possible romance….. yup. Sounds good to me! Not to mention it was blurbed by Seanan McGuire as being “almost perfect”…. yes please! I haven’t looked into any reviews on this one yet, and haven’t really read the whole synopsis – I wanted to go in as blindly as possible and go along for the ride.

OTHER BOOKISH NEWS:

TOP 5 TUESDAY:

This week was the beginning of the Authors A-Z series! The first set of letters was Authors A to E – I honestly expected this to be really easy but there were a few that were really difficult! You can choose between using the first names or last names and I vowed to stick with last names for this series. Next week are letters F, G, H, I, and J 🙂

There are a few more things I want to mention but I can’t just yet! It’s killing me! I have to get the details all set before I talk about it. It’s not really book related though…. but it’s still super exciting!! More to come hopefully next week!

Speaking of next week – it’s looking VERY busy. I bake at a restaurant on the side and I started a cupcake promotion for preorders of cupcakes for March break…. as if I had time for that lol. But I love doing exciting things for kids so I can’t wait! March break is the week after which is going to cut down on my reading even more. I really hope that I can step up my reading game or else this months wrap up is going to be really short….. pray for me Argentina!

Until next time, happy reading!

  4. Republic of Thieves is great but not nearly as good as the other two. I must admit that I am not that impressed with Sabetha. I cannot wait for the next book but this was my least favorite.

    1. I’m thinking I know why – it’s slow as hell! The heists and fuckery were soooo well written in the first two book’s. You knew everything was happening for a reason and would come back and bite someone in the ass in the end. This one is far more slow and emotional. I need heists!!
