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,
I can’t believe another month is gone and May is here, which also happens to be my birthday month. This month was super windy for April. I don’t ever remember it being this windy in LA before. Sometimes the wind scares me. Haha Anyways this week work was uneventful. They finally finished the paint job at work so hopefully it means that we don’t have to move any more books after next week. It’s one thing to move children’s books, but another thing to move all the oversize books because those are so much heavier (I mean who the heck checks out those books anyways?). So the book festivals season has come and gone. The LA Times Festival of Books wasn’t as exciting as the past couple of years, but I did get to meet a couple of authors (Charlotte Huang, Juliet Buxbaum, Kiersten White, and Maurene Goo comes to mind.), got some of my highly anticipated books for this year, and had an awesome time even though the weather was so insanely hot (I mean what was up with that?).
So, since I’m writing this wrap up on a Friday and it’s Sunday when I’m scheduling this post I’m currently making some notes for YALLWEST. I’m not too crazy about the lines, even though I did just line up 2 hours for Warcross simply because I didn’t want to catch a late bus home (it’s not easy when your only transportation method is the bus). Anyways I’m sure YALLWEST is gonna be intense just as it was last year so it doesn’t hurt to be prepare.
