Weekly Wrap-Up (11/1/2015)

The Sunday Post hosted @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer
It's Monday! hosted @ Book Journey

How was everyone's week? Did you get in some good reading?

I was so stressed out this week, dealing with family issues and having three papers for school due within days of each other, that my brain was turning to mush and I could feel a nervous breakdown a coming on. So, I asked, and luckily, got approved, for extensions on two of those papers, Phew! That relieved some of the stress.

On a lighter note, I read some good books and the weather wasn't crap this week, so there's that :-)


Review: Day 21
Top Ten Anticipted Debuts
Review: Obsidian
Review: The Witch of Salt & Storm
Chatty Saturday: Libraries


2014 Releases I Meant to Read but Never Got to
Waiting on The Bookseller by Cynthia Swanson
Review: All the Bright Places
Chatty Saturday


Both of these books took me totally by surprise and I enjoyed them both, immensely.

I went into this book not knowing anything about it and I think that added to my enjoyment of it, as I was asking "what the hell is going on?" the whole time. And that ending, I need the next installment, STAT.


Really enjoying this one, it's very unigue. Although, it does remind me a little bit of Justin Cronin's The Passage.


I haven't read any of the books I have been planning too for the past few weeks, so for next week , I am just going to read whatever takes my fancy. And of course, I will be working my way through my second term reading list for university.


After reading Obsidian I just had to get the next book in the series. I bought Never Never because I needed a very quick read and it is only 140 pages long, and by two authors I have never read, but want to.

I have Golden Son on hold at the library, and even though it was released on Thursday, they still haven't added it to their catalogue. The wait is killing me, I need it now.

I hope you all have a fabulous week and read some very excellent books.

  2. So glad they extended your time! Don't let the pressure get to you.

  3. Love Jennifer L. Armentrout and Colleen Hoover. I hope you enjoy reading the Lux series, I know I love it!

    My STS:

    1. I loved the first book, so here's hoping I love the rest ;-)

  4. Good for you. It can't hurt to ask and it worked out!
    You have some really great books. Several are making the rounds and I bet jump on them!

    My Sunday Post -

    1. It did work out indeed, it was such a weight lifted to get those extensions.
      I think that you would enjoy all of the books I recently read - they are that good :-)

  5. The Girl with All the Gifts is on my read-before-summer list. I will have to read Passages afterwards because you have me interested in the similarities. I have both Red Rising and Golden Son, I haven't read them yet, but I will soon. Just about everyone has been raving about them both. Right now I am reading Compulsion. Sorry I'm so late with The Sunday Post visit. I am just now getting to the last few blogs on the Linky.

    1. I am interested to hear not only what you think of both The Girl with all the Gifts and The Passage, but also if you found any similarities between the two.
      I can't believe that you have Red Rising and Golden Son, but haven't read them yet! Waiting to get my hands on Golden Son is killing me lol
      I have seen Compulsion around quite a bit, I will have to look in to it.:-)
