Weekly Wrap Up (09)

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,

I can’t believe another month is gone and May is here, which also happens to be my birthday month. This month was super windy for April. I don’t ever remember it being this windy in LA before. Sometimes the wind scares me. Haha Anyways this week work was uneventful. They finally finished the paint job at work so hopefully it means that we don’t have to move any more books after next week. It’s one thing to move children’s books, but another thing to move all the oversize books because those are so much heavier (I mean who the heck checks out those books anyways?). So the book festivals season has come and gone. The LA Times Festival of Books wasn’t as exciting as the past couple of years, but I did get to meet a couple of authors (Charlotte Huang, Juliet Buxbaum, Kiersten White, and Maurene Goo comes to mind.), got some of my highly anticipated books for this year, and had an awesome time even though the weather was so insanely hot (I mean what was up with that?).

So, since I’m writing this wrap up on a Friday and it’s Sunday when I’m scheduling this post I’m currently making some notes for YALLWEST. I’m not too crazy about the lines, even though I did just line up 2 hours for Warcross simply because I didn’t want to catch a late bus home (it’s not easy when your only transportation method is the bus). Anyways I’m sure YALLWEST is gonna be intense just as it was last year so it doesn’t hurt to be prepare.

  1. It’s been really windy here this week too. Should calm down by Monday though as it’s pushing through a storm. June starts our hurricane season. Crossing fingers we get lucky again this year and none come to us. If we have to stay indoors, at least we have our books!

    My Sunday Post

  2. It’s been super windy here too and lots of stuff getting blown around or over- kinda crazy how gusty it got. anyway yay for the festival ARC’s! I so want to read One of Us Is Lying…

  3. Hooray for your birthday month! Hope it’s a good one. I was pretty windy here up north too. It was nice, but windy. Enjoy your reading an have a great week!

  4. It has been super-windy here in Central California, too, which scared me a little, especially when my kitchen skylight cover fell down! Boom!

    Luckily it didn’t break this time! In the ten years I’ve lived in this place, the cover has fallen down three or four times this year alone. Hmm.

    Enjoy your new week, and I’m curious about My Not So Perfect Life. Here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

  5. It sounds like you got to meet some fantastic authors! I can’t wait to hear more about Yallwest. I really need to try to make it to Yallfest this year. I hope you have a great week!

  6. Wow, congrats on all those ARCs 🙂 awesome!

  7. Yayyy for Birthday month! I love Sophie Kinsella but I have not read her in a while. Have a great week ahead! I am so happy for May to be here and hopefully warmer weather.

  8. We have had so much rain here that now we are left with tons of flooding. I am ready for the weather to calm down. Happy birthday this month! Hopefully you have something fun planned. I couldn’t imagine moving all of those heavy books. I bet you will be glad when everything is done for good.

  9. April flew by! Happy early birthday! Your birthday month is always the best month. I hope you have fun things planned! It’s been uncharacteristically windy here, too. My door almost flew into a coworker’s this afternoon when I opened it, and again on me as I was getting out at home! I was petrified I was going to have a bone break with the force it started slamming back with!
