The Weekly Recap: I Didn't Mean To!! (Week of 1/7/18)

I'm linking up with Kimberly who blogs at The Caffeinated Book Reviewer for The Sunday Post. The Sunday Post is a weekly meme where all us bloggers talk about out week in reading, what books we got, and what's coming up in the week ahead. I'm also linking up with Book Photo Sundays hosted by Rabbit Ears Book Blog, a weekly meme where we share our favorite photos of the week.

 MY LIFE
Hi, everybody! It's been a surprisingly good week. I was sick for most of it (only made it to classes on Monday), but it was still a pretty good week. I made good progress in Ocarina of Time, and I read two books and DNFed one! I read more this week than I did in December. Oh and I went to the library today! I went for a couple cook books, and left with eleven books (none of them cookbooks). Oops? Well, here's to a better week, where we actually get the things we need! 

CURRENTLY READING
Lost & FoundThe Sleeper and the Spindle
Currently reading these for a graphic novel edition of mini reviews!  :)

WHAT I READ
Curse of Stars (Diamond Crier #1)Lick (Stage Dive, #1)Blood Brothers
 
I started off the week DNFing Curse of Stars. It was definitely time. Then I read Lick, and it was absolutely terrible! Expect a rant review soon. Then I read Blood Brothers, and it was fabulous. It was such a strong, powerful read. I'm currently writing this review, so expect this one soon. :)

BOOKS I HAVE ACQUIRED
For Review:  
Between the Blade and the Heart (Valkyrie, #1) 
Thank you to Wednesday Books for the copy of The Blade and the Heart!

From the Library: 
The Adoration of Jenna Fox (Jenna Fox Chronicles, #1)Darkness Before Dawn (Darkness Before Dawn Trilogy, #1)The Edge of Nowhere (Whidbey Island Saga, #1)Songs About a Girl (Songs About a Girl, #1)On the SpectrumLindsey LostThe End of Oz (Dorothy Must Die, #4)Con AcademyFlawed (Flawed, #1)The Sleeper and the SpindleLost & Found
I mean, did we really expect anything less from me? I think not.

  1. We don't go to the library as often as we used to - Himself is very much into Kindle Unlimited and I have an affair with Netgalley which is only JUST under control... Glad you hit gold with your reading this week and I very much hope you feel better soon, Anna:)

    1. Thank you! Yes, I do use the Kindle a lot, but I just like being able to go to the library and pick out books. Even if I don't get to read them all.

  2. In December I almost went every other Saturdaymorning, but this year I still haven't visited the library. Whoops. I'm planning to go next Saturdaymorning. I want to finish a series and I know they have the last book. :)

    I hope you feel better now.

  8. If my schedule would allow it, I would be at the library every week. As it stands, I try to get to each of my libraries at least once a month. {I am in two different library districts, so have twice the options :)}

    1. Me too! One of them is a little bit of a drive away, but their ebook selection is wonderful so it's totally worth it. :)

  9. I am glad you had a good week despite being sick. That is funny how you went in for cookbooks and came out with all of those and not one a cookbook. :)

    Have a great week and happy reading!

    1. I need a chaperone when I go to the library, and I'm currently looking for volunteers. XD

  10. I hope you're feeling better now. At least, being sick allowed you to read a lot. :) I hope you enjoy Darkness Before Dawn. I read it a few years ago and it is one of my favourite vampire stories/dystopias.

    Happy readings! ;)
