The Relentless Weekly Wrap-Up 06/01/2014



Linking up with It's Monday! What are you reading? hosted by Sheila @ Book Journey

On The Blog:

Armchair BEA happened this week. I managed to hang out at a couple of the speedy fast Twitter chats and to post twice:

Armchair BEA Introduction

Armchair BEA Giveaway (Go enter!)

You can also see my Monthly Wrap-Up for May. I read 5 books. Uh oh, I think I'm losing my speed reader credentials!

Currently Reading:


Goat Mountain by David Vann

Upcoming:


The Map Thief by Michael Blanding


Around the Blogosphere:


You must read the review of Rammed by the Raptor on The Steadfast Reader. I can't even begin to explain...just read it and thank me later. Apparently dinosaur erotica is a thing? WARNING: Please, for the love all of things holy, do NOT Google dinosaur erotica.


I hope you have a super week! What book are you looking forward to reading?

  1. FIVE BOOKS!??! :P

    Hey, you beat me. I read four for last month. Congratulations. I'm looking forward to reading The Last Colony by John Scalzi. Other than that, I don't know...if anything at the rate I'm going. :)

  2. Oh, I'm so glad you're reading Goat Mountain! I really want to pick it up (you know I love the depressing books), but I was kind of worried about the mixed reviews. I really enjoyed The Map Thief!

  5. Rammed by the Raptor was the best thing I've read in a long time. Good that she didn't take it too seriously, because, really, who could?

  6. Dinosaur erotica? There is a part of me that wants to take your warning about Googling it and totally ignore it. I'm typing this trying to stop myself from doing just that right this minute. I fear my willpower is not that strong...

    1. LOL, good luck! Did you look? Did you scoop your eyeballs out with a spoon afterwards? ;)

  7. Alison at The Book Wheel and Rebecca from Love at First Book told me about dinosaur erotica...I was very afraid. I finished 8 books in May...not too stellar, but it's ok.

      8 books is fab :) Depending on whether you liked them or not of course!

  9. Ha ha! I definitely WON'T google "dinosaur erotica," but I imagine some percentage of those who do will now find your blog (and April's)! I wrote a post that mentioned sloth mating and now I get some very interesting search terms...

  11. You never cease to amaze me and make me laugh. 5 books in a month (and that's slow for you), and dinosaur erotica, really? Two words I never would have put together. Here's my reading recap and linky if you'd like to stop by and link up.
