Welcome to the Weekly Wrap-up with Bookmunchies. This is our weekly update that combines Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer‘s SUNDAY POST and Tynga’s Reviews‘ STACKING THE SHELVES. This is a post to share news, to recap the week on the blog, share new reads and new books, and upcoming fun for the week ahead!
Hey guys, Jackie here,
Happy Easter to those who celebrate. If not, I hope you guys are treating yourselves with lots of sweets in the shape of bunnies or tiny birds or any other cute spring animals (my favorite spring animal are sheep). This week at work its finally quiet again now that the kids are back in school. I had lunch with a couple of coworkers on Wednesday because our supervisor gave us coupons a few weeks ago. And it was a fun lunch, even though the food itself could’ve been a bit better. I also got the chance to finally watch Moana and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. I’m not sure about the movies because I had mixed feelings for both. Moana was unexpectedly more musical than I anticipated, but somehow I still teared up a bit at the end. O__o (I still tear up whenever I listen to ‘I Am Moana’ on the soundtrack) And like previous Disney movies I had some songs stuck in my head for a couple of days. ^_^;; As for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, I had similar feelings while reading the script novel a couple of months back and I don’t know I guess I was expecting more. Like some kind of Easter egg surprise that you find in the movie and not in the book. I’m hoping the second movie will be more developed.
Here at Bookmunchies we believe in being surprises for the week
(aka. we procrastinate, so we can’t tell you what’s quite coming up yet).
The Ship Beyond Time by Heidi Heilig: 3 of 5 stars
1. Alex and Eliza by Melissa de la Cruz – I placed a hold on this book while I was listening to Hamilton a couple of weeks back, but otherwise it’s my first time reading a book by this author.
2. Zenn Diagram by Wendy Brant – I wanted to get the ebook of this book after reading the summary because it sounded super cute, but apparently B&N didn’t have it in ebook format. So glad my library orders the really weird books that nobody would probably ever read so it’s like they read my mind about this one.
1. The Perfect Stranger by Megan Miranda – I LOVE Megan Miranda’s novels so obviously this was an auto author buy for me.
