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,
August isn’t feeling much like August. Instead August feels like September. The only thing that makes it feel like it’s still August is that the heat continue to be persistent. This week has been pretty low key at work. And I also DNF another book. It’s frustrating when a book doesn’t work out even though you want it to. I hate it when it happens especially if the book is part of a series because I really want to see how the book is shaping up. However, since the book I DNF (King’s Cage by Victoria Aveyard) didn’t have anything memorable going on for the first 200 pages I’m pretty sure it’s not going to change for the last 200 pages (it’s a 400 page book). Time to move onto the next book I guess. I ended up borrowing the Before I Fall movie and while I haven’t watched too far into it yet, I remember hating the characters a lot in the book and that feeling doesn’t seem to change for the movie yet.
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).
[DNF] King’s Cage by Victoria Aveyard: For a third book I was expecting a lot of action, however, almost 200 pages in I was bored and it was frustrating.
