Weekly Wrap Up (11)

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 Mother’s Day to all mothers out there. And also, happy birthday to me. Another year older, which I’m sure how to feel about that. It is my last year in my 20s and every time I think about hitting my 30s next year I’m panicking because I still don’t have a clue what to do with the rest of my life. Do I want to go back to school? Do I want to get a new job? Why am I not writing that novel that I said I would publish when I was 20? Maybe it’s why I like reading YA fiction so much because it makes me forget that I’m getting older and gonna get wrinkles and grey hair and stressing out over my first grey hair. Ahhh!! Anyways I went to Universal Studios Hollywood yesterday and I seriously need to use my pass more before it expires soon. I’m thinking of getting a new one when that happens because it’s so easy to hop on the train and be able to get there in about an hour unlike Disneyland where according to my friend it takes 3 hours by bus to get there as opposed to an hour drive, but we’ll see. As for birthday plans it’s just another Sunday, possibly sleeping in and hitting the bookstore later? Or maybe trying out a new boba place. Ahhh…the possibilities.

  1. Happy Birthday. If it helps when I turned 30 I suddenly felt like I’d turned a corner and knew myself – and what I wanted to be when I was a grown up. Have a good week.

    1. Thank you! That sounds so magical.

  2. Happy birthday! Hope it’s a great one…

    I’ve never been to Universal but one of these days hopefully… 🙂

    1. Thank you! I hope you get the chance to go one day. I’m not a fan of the rides, but I like visiting the Wizarding World and pretend that Hogwarts is real when I’m there a lot.

  3. Happy birthday, Jackie. I hope you have a wonderful time celebrating. Wish you all the best.
    Hitting bookstore sounds like a great plan to celebrate. Enjoy your books and have a wonderful week. 😁
    I’m planning to go to my favorite bookstore today.

    1. Thank you! It’s my favorite way to celebrate and yay! I hope you picked up some awesome books to read.

  4. Happy birthday, Jackie! And don’t worry about age. I’m 46 and finally finishing up my 2nd degree so I can switch careers, and it’s all good 😀
    Universal studios sounds like a good plan.
    Have a wonderful week ahead and happy reading.

    1. Thank you! Wow! Go you! I hope you enjoy your new career.

  5. Happy birthday! I find the older I get, the less I care about age. It means nothing, and it’s never too late to do anything!

    1. Thank you! Ahaha I’m trying to forget about it, but 30 is such a huge number to ignore especially when people insist on celebrating your birthday.

  6. I totally know what you mean, I’ll be hitting 29 myself soon. It’s just so weird to think that we’re almost at “the dreaded 30s”, which don’t feel at all like they were portrayed on TV shows and in books when we were teens. Mostly because our generation is so different? So maybe it won’t be so bad xD

  7. Happy Birthday!!! Embrace it! Life is too short.

    1. Thank you! Yes that is my current mindset at the moment. lol

  8. Happy Birthday! I am much older so enjoy your age and don’t worry:) Have a great week ahead!

    1. Thank you! It’s hard not to worry about it.

  9. Happy Birthday I hate getting older I turn 29 later this year and its scary going to hit your thirties! I hope you have a great birthday and a great reading week.

  10. Happy Birthday!! Do not worry about 30. Honestly my 30’s have been pretty bad ass 🙂 Hope you have a great day and week ahead!!

  11. Happy birthday! 30 feels like it happened to me so long ago. I’m 37 now and I still don’t know what to do with my life. My mom is 69 and she tells me she still doesn’t know what she wants to be when she grows up!
    Enjoy your day and have a great week!

  12. Happy Birthday! Don’t stress about your age. There is no certain age where you have to have everything figured out. Just try to enjoy each day as it comes. Have a great week!

  13. Sleeping in and a bookstore run sounds like a pretty awesome birthday plan 😀 Hope you had a good time!

  14. Happy belated birthday, Jackie!! I’m in the same boat, almost out of my twenties, it’s definitely weird to think I need to be an adult now haha. I’m so jealous Universal Studio is nice and close for you! Hope you had a great birthday!

    1. Thanks, Cyn!! I thought we were adults the moment we turned 20. However, I wish time turners were real because I want to go back to being the carefree oblivious teenager and not being an adult. Though, to be honest, I didn’t really like my teenage years. ahaha
