Weekly Wrap-Up: Last Month of Freedom

What's New:
I've got a lot of things I want to read and watch in August before school starts again, and I'm feeling a little overwhelmed by everything I want to cram in. As usual, I didn't get nearly as much reading done this summer as I wanted to, even though I did lots.

On Sunday, I went to a Tim McGraw concert with my best friend which was great. I grew up listening to Tim McGraw so it was so cool to see the songs I loved as a kid preformed live.

What I Read:
This week I read (and loved) Challenger Deep by Neal Shusterman and my review will be up on Monday. I also finished Speak By Laurie Halse Anderson, which is something I have been meaning to read forever! I'm caught up on my Goodreads challenge for the first time in months, and I would love to be ahead before school starts again at the end of August! We will see what happens.

 


What I Got From the Library:
P.S. I Still Love You, Jenny Han

The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks, E. Lockhart


What I Posted: 
Monday- I reviewed one of my favorite author's latest books, The Ghost of Heaven by Marcus Sedgwick
Wednesday- I spotlighted some more Books on my TBR Shelf
Thursday- I did the Jane Austen Book Tag
Friday- I did a YA Retellings edition of Just Added

Last Week's Wrap-Up

What's Next: 
I have a review of Challenger Deep planned for next week, as well as a Top Ten Tuesday post, and I want to discuss some end of the summer goals.

  4. That sound like a fun concert. I haven't been to a lot of country shows but live acts are the best. Hope your month starts off good- looking forward to your posts this week.

  8. Great list of books! That's awesome about the Tim McGraw concert. I've heard he puts on a really great show. I never get quite as much read as I expect too either but hopefully you got some great books read!

  11. I know the feeling of wanting to get things done before college starts back! I am taking part in ARC August, and have 16 books I really need to get through by the end of the month. It's stressful, but I think it might end up being a lot of fun!

    I hope you enjoy the books you got! I still have P.S. I Still Love You near the top of my TBR list! I just won't have time to read it until September so I am holding off on buying it until I have time!

    Here is my StS
