Weekly Wrap-Up: Busy Weekend

What's New:
This weekend is super busy. I'm writing this from my apartment; my summer class meets on campus tomorrow for one day since it's a mostly online class. This means I had to drive up to my campus apartment which is two hours away, and I will be driving back the same day the class meets. Then the next day, my younger brother graduates from high school. It does not seem like he is old enough to move out and go to college!

Reading Update:
This week I finished Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater and of course jumped right into The Raven King. I am hoping to finish it this week and I would love to read two books this week. We'll see how that goes though.

New Books:
Library Sale
I picked this classic up because it was at my library sale for two dollars and it's one I have been wanting to pick up for a while. It's a romantic thriller I do believe, let me know if you've read and enjoyed it.
This is a fictional account of Edna St. Vincent Millay, one of my all-time favorite poems. I haven't read anything by Robuck, but her other two novels featuring real literary figures as fictional characters have gotten a lot of praise so I think she will do Millay justice.

This one was super popular a while ago and I'm glad I found a cheap copy of it. It's a thriller and translated fiction.

I have this one out on loan as an ebook from my library. From what I have heard, this is a reimagining of Jane Eyre where the main character really enjoys the novel Jane Eyre and she murders people/ wants to murder people? Don't really know. I will link you to the vague but mysterious Goodreads synopsis.

Last Week's Wrap-Up

What's Next: 
I have a review for Paula McLain's Circling the Sun planned, and hopefully I can get some of my draft posts that I have been meaning to type up for months now out of the draft pile into the post pile.

What did you read this week?


  1. All good ones. I especially like the looks of Fallen Beauty. Enjoy.

  2. Wow that does sound busy! Good luck with the reading this week and enjoy the Stiefvater book. It seems to be really popular.

  3. I never understood why my mother would get so exhausted from driving (typically the long stretch to my aunt's over 3 hrs away), but now that I am an adult I understand it - and I get exhausted after a while, too. Drive safely next week! I am also struggling to get posts out of drafts and into scheduled posts, and to just get things done in general on my blog.

    1. Yes! Driving puts me in a lull sometimes and makes it impossible not to nap when I get home. Hope we can both get some sort of a schedule soon!
      Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Congrats to your brother! It's so exciting moving from high school to college and such a life changing experience too. I haven't read Maggie Stiefvater yet but really want too. One of these days...Hope you have a great week and enjoy your new reads!

    1. It doesn't seem like he is old enough to start college! But I know he will do great. Stiefvater's writing is gorgeous. Hope you get to her soon!
