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.

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.
