Weekend Wrap-Up

Weekend Wrap-Up 1

Welcome to my Weekend Wrap-Up! This is where I discuss books I bought/borrow/received and books I finished reading this week. I hope you’ll join in and tell me your bookish weekend wrap-up in the comments 🙂 


Bought/Borrowed/Received These:

  1. Sea and Sand by Alex Lidell
    This is a book that I am SO EXCITED about. I love the TIDES series and I’ve been waiting on the third book for months, so I’m super excited to finally have it on my Kindle and ready to go (Kindle Unlimited is a blessing and a curse).
  2. Flamecaster by Cinda Williams Chima
    I have been WAITING on this book. Full disclosure, I actually didn’t technically borrow this book this week. My hold at the library was finally fulfilled last week but I haven’t been up on my email game, SO I didn’t realize it was available until a couple days ago. Much excitement ensued.
  3. Meditation for Fidgety Skeptics by Dan Harris. I bought this book on recommendation from my mom, who heard about it on TV somewhere (Good Morning America maybe? Or some other news program). I am Anxiety Girl, and I’m interested to see if meditating will actually help. I’m probably the definition of a “fidgety skeptic” and I firmly believe that clearing my mind is an impossible feat, so we’ll see if Mr. Harris’s approach can get me into meditating for real.
  4. Blades of Magic by Terah Edun. This book was free in a BookBub email I received this week. the description and bunches of highly-rated reviews just grabbed me! I love fantasy/magic adventure stories, so I’m excited to see if this one lives up to the hype.

Finished These:

  1. The Ghost Notebooks by Ben Dolnick
    I selected this book on a whim during the last First to Read drawing, and I’m so glad I did. This was a haunting, tragic tale that turned out to be so much more than your typical ghost story. Full review here.
  2. The Inheritance by Irina Shapiro
    I downloaded this gem from Kindle Unlimited last week, and got around to reading it almost immediately. I don’t know whether I’ll write a full review of this one for the blog, but other than an ending that felt slightly rushed to me, this was a really enjoyable love story that’s perfect to curl up with on a dreary winter day.
  3. Sea and Sand by Alex Lidell
    Surprise! This book made it into both categories this week. I really loved this third installment in the wonderful TIDES series. Full review here.

What’s Next?

I’m currently reading Flamecaster by Cinda Williams Chima and absolutely LOVING it thus far. On deck I have the second book from that series, Shadowcaster.

What did you read this week, and what are you looking forward to reading next? 💕
