Weekly Wrap-Up #2

This week, I’m linking up with Stacking The Shelves, and Sunday Post.  Go check them out!

What happened on the blog this week?

Monday: Review: Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder

 I adored Poison Study and I have no doubt that Maria V. Snyder will soon become one of my favorite authors. 

Tuesday: Top 10 Tuesday: Favorite Authors

 This was one of the most difficult prompts ever.  But I did it!  

Wednesday: Waiting On Wednesday #2

 This week I shared my excitement for A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas, coming out May 5th


Thursday: Review: Splintered by A.G. Howard

 Splintered was great and surprised me – in a good way.  Wonderful retelling with lots of action and great characters!


Friday:  Discussion: Friendships in YA

I discussed friendships in YA and how they are under displayed.  There needs to be more YA books with strong friendships.  I also recommend and highlight a couple of books with good friendships that I’ve found.

What new books did I get this week?
This week, I bought two new books.  I got these books at a Maria V. Snyder signing that I went to

Shadow Study by Maria V. Snyder:

 This is the continuation of the Poison Study series.  The order is confusing, but to my knowledge, Shadow Study is the fourth Poison Study book.  Anyways, the cover is beautiful and I can’t wait to read it.

Inside: Inside Out\Outside In

This is a new bind up of Maria V. Snyder’s Inside Duology.  I’ve never read it before, and I’ve been wanting to check it out.  Plus, this was basically two books for the price of one. 

What books did I read this week?
Get ready for it…I only read ONE book this week.  It just keeps getting worse. *bows head in shame*

What Happened To Goodbye by Sarah Dessen

I felt like I needed a contemporary book after the intense books I read last week.  This book was great and light and fun, but at the same time really makes you think.  Great summer read!

Hopefully, I’ll have read more books by next week, as I’m currently read about 4.  How do you find enough time for reading and blogging?
