Weekly Wrap-Up 01/28/13

Found this cutie patootie graphic @ Once Upon A Twilight

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila @ Book Journey
I love this meme, it inspires me to be a bit more organized than usual! 

Happy Monday folks! Here's to another great week of reading! Here's what has been going on in my neck of the woods:

Reviews:





I'm a smidge behind on reviews because I've been reading like a girl on fire. I'm not going to list the books I've read and not reviewed. That would only cause me to feel pressure. NO PRESSURE THIS YEAR DAMMIT. 



Currently Reading:


I've just started Where'd You Go Bernadette by Maria Semple. I'm glad to have finally snagged a copy from my local library.  

Upcoming:

A couple more library books, yay!






After those I'll be digging into The Promise of Stardust by Priscille Sibley for a book club discussion at Devourer of Books and Linus's Blanket.

Bloggish Business:

I'd be delighted if you hooked up with The Relentless Reader at one (or all!) of the following places:


Leave your links for me as well! 

See how much fun it will be?!
Have a marvelous week ya'll!

  1. I have noticed your activity on Twitter and you really are burning through the pages! So awesome!

    Ooo I have heard about the My Bookstore book before! I read about it right before I went to my cousin's wedding, and wouldn't you know it, one of the bookstores was in the same city! I was a happy nerd that day. I want to read the book though. :)

  7. I like the idea behind My Bookstore, I'd love it if there was a version of that for the United Kingdom! Maybe I'll have a look around for something like that...
    I would say good luck with getting your books read... But I really don't think you need it. Haha.

    1. There is a giant list of people who contributed to that book. I would be shocked if there aren't some UK authors/bookstores in it. ;)

      Thanks Jade, I am reading like a maniac aren't I? lol

  16. Just for OCD kicks, I went through the links and made sure I was following and stalking in every way... the only one I wasn't was Pinterest but that's been remedied. However, I am such a complete failure at Pinterest so don't expect much from me there =)

  18. I loved Bernadette, it was one of my favorites last year. I have the Thomas Jefferson book, just need to sit still long enough to read it... I should have gotten it in audio!

    1. I can see why you loved it, it was a delight to read! Do make time for the Jefferson, it's a great book.

  19. Now that would keep you really busy for the month or weeks to finish all the book and you've got a good taste.
