Weekly Wrap Up (36)

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, Kim here,

I haven’t done one of these Wrap Ups since before it got the style change. It’s all fancy now. Oooh, aaaah. Haha. But anyway, fall is always the best time of year for bookish things, it feels like. Boston has so many good events and festivals in the fall; I’ve been busy! A couple highlights were definitely Boston’s Teen Author Festival and more recently the Boston Book Festival. There were so many great authors who came and put on some fun, fascinating panels. Love. It.

What’s your favorite kind of book event? Just an author event promoting a book? Or do you also like the panels where you can get a range of authors commenting on one topic?

Shelter in Place by Nora Roberts: 5 of 5 stars – This story was equal parts about the family, the crime, and the romance. It was amazing.

  1. When I go to cons, I spend almost all my time in the panels, because I love getting to know more about the authors. I like in-store signings, where the authors do a little talk before the signings begin, but I honestly never wait for signings at BookCon. I didn’t the year I went to YallFest either. I spent all my time in the panel rooms at those events.

    1. You’re much better than me. If it’s something like BookCon, I feel like I’d just spend my day in lines, which I hate… Luckily the format for the Boston Teen Author Fest blocks it off so all the panels happen first then at the end of the day there’s a massive signing for everyone. Best of both worlds! Panels are the best though. I love that chance to get to know the author more.

  2. I wish there was more Cons around where I live. I have only been to one and that was BEA last year which was fun. Enjoy your reads!

    Have a great week!

    1. Ohhh, that stinks. I’m lucky Boston is such a literate place and we have these cool book fests to look forward to. Would you consider traveling to book fests/cons, like Yallfest?

  3. We don’t have any book events around here, so I haven’t been to one since college. It’s sad because I really like them.

    1. Oof that sucks. Book events are fun!

  4. The only book events that we seem to get in my area are single authors. Every once in a while they come in pairs or as a group but it is rare. I like all of the different events but don’t seem to be able to go to many because of my family’s crazy schedule. Have a great week!

    1. That’s still fun though! And I get that. Sometimes other priorities get in the way of going to book events.

  5. Always with I could to go the Cons. Never any close enough. Very nice new look!

  6. I had to giggle at your “upcoming posts” because I am so with you right now!

    1. Haha, it’s how we roll. 😉
