Weekly Wrap-Up: First Week of April

What's New:
The semester is coming to end in about three weeks, so I've got lots of big due dates coming up. I've been able to make some downtime for myself this past week though which has been great! So here's an update on what I have read since my last wrap-up.

I've finished (and will be reviewing)
 

I'm Currently Reading











Next, I'm Planning to Start








What I Bought:
The Sky is Everywhere, Jandy Nelson
It's no secret that I love I'll Give You the Sun so naturally I wanted to pick up Nelson's debut. 

The Eyre Affair, Jasper Fforde
I've heard great things about this and it looks like so much fun!

What I Posted:
Monday- I reviewed Jane Austen's Emma (Mr. Knightly might be my new favorite Austen love interest! <3)
Tuesday- I discussed ten characters I would like to catch up with over tea.
Wednesday- I asked an important question: Is Taylor Swift the Confessional Poet of our Generation?
Thursday- A new addition to my Poetry Spotlight Series: T.S. Elliot's The Wasteland

Last Week's Wrap-Up

What's Next: 
This upcoming week I will be reviewing Cat's Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut, participating in Top Ten Tuesday, discussing an adaption of Emma, and discussing more poetry.

  6. Knightly in a book really beats Darcy because he is so gracious to all and sundry. He is without the snooty pride of Darcy. And the Eyre affair looks great - at least the cover does. my post is http://fangswandsandfairydust.com/2015/04/payback.html

  7. The Eyre Affair looks interesting. I've heard about it but have read it yet. Somehow I haven't read Emma. Really I haven't read any Austen other than Pride and Prejudice but I'm hoping to fix that. Have a great week!
