The Weekly Wrap-Up (16)


The birthday extravaganzas are almost over! I love my friends, I really do - but 9 birthdays in just over five weeks? I know it doesn't sound like a real problem (and it's not, per se...), but it's just time consuming. My NaNoWriMo novel is struggling like crazy, and work has been a bit more stressful than usual...but hey, I had a great week in books, so things are looking up!

In case you missed it...
Kinda ambitious for how crazy this month will be, but that's ok!

Who do I have to bribe for an ARC of Through the Ever Night? Because I will.

Despite some issues with the writing, it's a fascinating look at the Amish life.

And my Holiday Book Giveaway finally went live!
TWO winners, a choice between 4 YA holiday novels!
And if TBD ships to you, you can enter!
ends 11/28

Coming up...
A review of Meant To Be by Lauren E. Morrill, and spoiler: this is one of my favourites of the year!
Two event recaps: Elizabeth Norris & Dan Krokos Signing, and the #YAintheSun event!
And I think I may just throw in a Top Ten Tuesday...


Onto the book haul!

  8. I really like the concept behind Arccyling. I think its a novel idea and a good way to spread the word about books. Hope you enjoy all your new books.
