Weekly Wrap Up (32)

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,

Its been another long week that I’m glad to see it end, but then again I feel that every week is a long week. I did a lot of knitting, a bit of reading, so it wasn’t anything unusual. Just another typical week. But pretty frustrating on the knitting part as I’ve discovered a mistake. Rather than just fixing it I ended up unraveling the entire project because I wasn’t really happy with the colors. Anyways I finally hit up the bookstore and its been too long since I last step foot in one, so it was rather hard to limit myself to not buy all the books. I was there to get the recently release of Rick Riordan’s Magnus Chase book, The Ship of the Dead and anything else that caught my eye. Whenever I tell my coworkers about buying books they look at me like a weirdo, that I’m already am, and say “But you work in a library, Jackie, you don’t need to be buying books.” I don’t know… to me the library and bookstore just feels different to me and there’s just some books that I really need to buy for my own collection.

✖ Teaser Tuesday: Close Enough to Touch

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).

Before She Ignites by Jodi Meadows: 5 of 5 stars – Sometimes I feel like I’m reading nonfiction with this novel instead of fantasy despite the dragons.
Starfish by Akemi Dawn Bowman: 5 of 5 stars – There were some parts that was difficult to read but oddly I can relate to Kiko.


1. The Ship of the Dead by Rick Riordan – Is this really the end of the series? I don’t want it to end so soon.
2. Far From the Tree by Robin Benway – I read Emmy & Oliver last year (?) and this author is an automatic buy for me. Her works are hilarious. I’m definitely looking forward to her newest book.

  1. I also felt like I had just another typical week, nothing too out of the ordinary. Except for when I started my own Goodreads group! But it all fades now somehow 🙂
    Have a great week!

  2. I can’t help buying books! Sometimes you just NEED that book on your shelf so you can stare at it whenever you want! If I do that at the library, people think I’m weird 🙂
    Have a great week!

  3. My son asks me why I buy new books when I have so many on my bookshelves. How can he ask such a question? My husband doesn’t even ask me anymore, he told me the other day that I need to buy another bookshelf. lol… Have a great week ahead.

  4. There ARE books you just have to buy for yourself and have at home. They’re the weirdos. Book haters. Sorry about your latest knitting project – that shounds frustrating.

  5. For the love of books… Enjoy.
    I plan on starting a crochet project this week. It is a cozy thing to do in the autumn season.

  6. You are right about the difference of the library and the bookstore. I mean I love the library, but there is something so special about treating yourself at the bookstore.

  7. Even people who work at the library need to have their own collection at home. Honestly, I would probably buy more books if I got to spend the day surrounded by them. Have a great week!

  8. Starfish is getting all the raves. I will add that to the list of books I regret not requesting. Glad to hear you liked Before She Ignites. Most of the reviews have been meh, and I have been putting off reading the book because of that.

  9. I loved Emmy & Oliver so much. I’d reviously read Audrey, Wait from Benway (and enjoyed it, too) so I was super excited for Far from the Tree. It didn’t disappoint! I absolutely loved it and my review just went up today. Benway is definitely becoming one of my go-to authors for YA contemporary. Hope you’ll love it, too!

  10. I try not to buy books because I already have so many but if I step into a bookstore it’s on and I’m even worse in a library because “I’m not spending any money” and “it’s just temporary”. I do agree that they feel different. That’s too bad about your knitting project. I can see how that’d be frustrating but hopefully you’ll be able to make the color changes you wanted. I love the idea of knitting or really anything like that but haven’t actually learned how to do so. Maybe this winter. Have a great week!
