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,
Summer is in a couple of days and I’m not sure if I should feel excited or anxious because you know the heat. However, I’m glad I’m not living in the Asian countries because they also have the humidity that comes with the heat which is even worse. Work has been a bit crazy this week because they’re removing and putting in new carpets so it’s been a bit hard to figure out which books we’re able to shelve as they’re working on somewhere new everyday. Recently I’ve been pretty slow at reading. I’ve got a ton of books I want to finish, (especially for series that I’ve started a couple of years ago but haven’t read the ending yet), but I’m reading at a snail’s pace. Maybe it’s because I’m disinterested in the books or they all feels similar but sometimes I find myself binge watching more shows and knitting than reading.
Also, Happy father’s day! Some of my favorite books with awesome dads in it are I Believe in a Thing Called Love by Maurene Goo, the Lunar Chronicles series by Marissa Meyer, and Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins.

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).
[reread] Mila 2.0 by Debra Driza: 3 of 5 stars – Slow start that became engaging towards the last half of the book
The Names they Gave Us by Emery Lord: 4 of 5 stars
[reread] Renegade by Debra Driza: 4 of 5 stars – Things got a bit interesting, but I’m not a big fan of Hunter. He keeps giving mixed hot and cold signals.
Nothing new this week, but I feel like I’ve made some progress with taking that huge TBR pile down a bit. Haha who am I kidding, right?
