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,
It seems that I keep forgetting we have August these days. I don’t know why my brain just automatically jumps to September even though we have one more month of summer to go. I want to do something epic in August, but I don’t know what yet. This week at work was pretty quiet for a change but I guess because the summer reading program is winding down. However, the kids that come in for story time have been strangely hyperactive this week. Maybe they’re excited about school starting…? Anyways, I was almost done knitting my mom’s birthday present earlier this week, but because of my impatient to finish knitting the shawl (whoever said you needed patience to knit I totally disagree. I have no patience at all especially when I’m almost done with a project.) I totally fudged up a stitch and it couldn’t be saved (I had 300+ stitches and it made me weep a little…all that work). So I had to restart. But, weirdly enough I don’t really get frustrated (maybe a little) when I have to restart a project all over unlike with some things.
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).

Nothing new this week. I’ve been trying to be good about not getting new books and go through what I have before picking up any new ones.
