The Weekly Wrap-Up (3) + My Mailbox

Happy Mother's Day!
Brilliantly original. 5+ stars.

Makes me remember why I love reading.

So cute I want to die.

Cute summer read, but not for me. 3.5 Stars

The Fault In Our Stars and The Mortal Instruments magically fit both memes. They're that good.

I lose my shit over Jessi Kirby having read and remembered my review. And I get fun swag!

Coming up this week...
I finally talk adult books (sorta...) and I review Gilt by Katherine Longshore. (Spoiler: I LOVE IT.)


And finally, my mailbox!

  7. Finniking of the Rock is amazing! I must be the only person who prefers Marchetta's fantasy work over her contemporary.
    Happy reading and thanks for stopping by.
