The Relentless Weekly Wrap-Up 01/19/14




I didn't do a wrap-up last week. Well, no, I did. However, I wasn't able to publish it for some reason. (Thanks, Blogger!)

So, here's what's been going on in my reading life since the new year began.

Reviews:

Love Water Memory by Jennie Shortridge

The Scent of Pine by Lara Vapnyar

Read:

The Wife, The Maid, and The Mistress by Ariel Lawhon

Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein

The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion

Twelve Years a Slave by Solomon Northup

Belle Cora by Phillip Margulies

Currently Reading:



Madam: A Novel of New Orleans by Cari Lynn & Kellie Martin

Upcoming:

Beats me! Reading whatever I want, whenever I want, is absolutely DELIGHTFUL! Here are two of the books that are in the running:


Other Business:


The Mini-Bloggiesta is coming!
(My to-do list will be published later today)

I dropped my Goodreads goal from 200 to 150. (I'm behind schedule, already!) I had forgotten that I'm going back to school. I don't know what that's going to do to my reading time but I'm assuming I won't have as much of it!

2014 Reading Challenge

Nice start.

You have read 5 of 150 books
2 books behind schedule



Happy Reading
Have a great week, everyone!

  1. Ooo, you've read a few that I've been dying to pick up (Twelve Years a Slave and Code Name Verity). School can definitely do a number on the reading, but I'm so excited for you that you're going back!

    1. Code Name Verity made me ugly cry, but it was sooo good! I really liked The Rosie Project too. I've had a great year of reading, so far ;)

      That's what I'm mostly excited about. I love learning!

  8. I really enjoyed the Rosie Project, too! Sounds like you've had a great reading month so far! I like the cover you posted for Anya's Ghost.

  9. Anya's Ghost is such a fun, quicky read. Loved it! And you have read some good-lookin' stuff. I really want to get to The Rosie Project (you're a lot of the reason I bought it when it was a daily deal recently), and I've heard nothing but good things about Twelve Years a Slave.

  11. OMG you read so much!! Totally agree with Andi on Anya's Ghost. It's a fun read. I hope to get to The Rosie Project really REALLY soon. I really should go read!

  13. Nice review of Love Water Memory. Sounds very good... I have to admit, I'm curious as to why she starts out standing in the bay!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I got The Rosie Project from the library. I think it's coming up in a few books. I can't wait to read what you thought!

  15. Blogger can be very temperamental at times! I really like the look of Anya's Ghost - I'd love to know more about that one.
    Happy Reading!

  16. I finished 2 books and got excited about that lol. I'm determined to get to Code Name Verity this year. Have a great week and happy reading :)

  17. Oooh what are you going back to school for? Sorry if you posted about it, I may have missed it in my new-child delirium. :) And I am totes jealous of your read-what-I-want plan...I cut back to one TLC book tour a month this year...but given how slow I'm reading, it's still taking up a lot of my reading time! Ah well. At least they send me good books...
