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 all, Kim here!
As my friend Eileen would say, Reader!Kim is back! I’ve actually been reading a couple YAs and some romances recently. Not all good, but it’s been fun finding my reading groove again. I finally picked up the Maze Runner books. It hooked me and def helped make my time on the elliptical go by so fast. Of course that means I watched the movie right after. There were some differences but it worked and didn’t really detract from my enjoyment.
I’ve also started knitting again. I put aside the project that was frustrating me and decided to knit something else to get back into the habit of knitting. It’s definitely helped me to do that AND I think the finish product will be pretty swell. So I’m pleased. My only issue is how hard it can be to try to knit and read at the same time! Anyone else have this problem?
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).
The Maze Runner by James Dashner (5 stars): that definitely lived up to the hype!
Trouble Makes a Comeback by Stephanie Tromly: (4 stars): Sequel to Trouble is a Friend of Mine and not suffering any second book syndrome at all. I was hooked by the characters, the mystery, and the juicy romantic undertones. Only downside was the Drama. Otherwise, solid read!
His Forever Family by Sarah M. Anderson: (4 stars): Cute baby romance that made my heart go “awwww”. Exactly what I was looking for.
Checkmate Duet Series #1: Travis & Viola by Kennedy Fox: (2 stars): Wow. So much sex, not enough plot. I don’t know that I should’ve expected anything else considering the cover, but I did. Good for anyone looking for a smutty NA romance with a hate-to-love second chance romance.
Everything can be made better with a good book or some relaxing knits. 😀 Find me on IG @kimberlyh12 or on Twitter @enervated.
