The Relentless Weekly Wrap-Up 04/13/14




On The Blog:

I had fun exploring why I read what I read. I hope you'll check it out!

Read:

Ruby by Cynthia Bond

The Word Exchange by Alena Graedon

This turtle is faster than my recent reading speed. I'm slooooow lately.

Currently Reading:

 

Wonder Woman Unbound by Tim Hanley

Upcoming:

Euphoria by Lily King

I'm still reading mostly on a whim. Euphoria is on the "reading it probably kinda soon" pile. (Isn't the cover glorious?)

Other Business:


I ordered me a big ol' box of wine from Club W. Smartest decision I ever made. You can get a free bottle if you use this: http://www.clubw.com/6345871295 (I'll get a free bottle too, woot!)

Around the Blogosphere:


Trish, from Love, Laughter, and a Touch of Insanity, talks about the very important things we learned from the classic film The Princess Bride.

How's it going, readers? Did you have a good week?

  1. You're not slow...you're just deliberate. :P Always look on the bright side of life (whistling).

    Is there a whiskey club? Or a rum club? ;) Now THOSE I would join.

    1. Ah, deliberate. I like that :D

      Mmmm rum! I could get excited about a club like that. If I see one I'll let you know, lol

    1. Oooh, cool! I'm fairly new to the world of wine so it was neat to take the palate test. I'm going to keep notes on the bottles I try and try to narrow down what I really like :D

  6. Euphoria's cover is awesome. My reading has been slow too this month. *sigh* Too many things on my mind.

  8. Somehow I doubt that your reading is slower than the turtle. ;) And thanks for the Princess Bride shout-out!
