Sunday Funday: Week in Review [11]

sundayfundaynewSunday Funday is a weekly(ish) post I’ve started to recap the bookish (and sometimes not-so-bookish) happenings in my life the past week! Feel free to participate, just link back!

August 18 -August 24, 2014

This week I was mainly focused on participating in the Bout of Books read-a-thon, so most of my time was split between the library and home. Saturday I did take a break from reading and had a really great day with my Dad, as we took a day trip to visit my little brother at college and see his brand new dorm (which is actually a gorgeous on-campus town home, lucky!) and I walked around his campus *pretending* I was still a college student.

I also hit 200+ followers this week and I just want to shout out to all of you guys that I’m so thankful that you all take the time to read about my book passion! I know Bout of Books introduced me to a lot of great new blogs this week and the book blogging community has continued to impress me by how welcoming and friendly it is, so thank you!

BoB11-200x200I participated in my first read-a-thon this week (well, I’m still paricipating, I have about 7 hours left!) and I really enjoyed it, it really helped me to get through my stack of library books. So far I’ve met my major goal of reading three books and still have a novella to read.

Bought This Week:


I also added two books to my shelves this week that I’ve REALLY been wanting to read, although I haven’t picked them up yet because I have a rule that I have to read my library books before I can read my OWN books.

What Happened Here This Week:

Monday: I review the eerie Paper Valentine & launched my Bout of Books update post.

Tuesday: Top Ten Books People Have Been Telling Me I MUST Read!

Wednesday: I review Rainbow Rowell’s first novel, Attachments.

Thursday: I talk a little more about myself through the 55 Bookish Questions Survey.

Friday: I fangirl about my new fairytale retelling, Cruel Beauty.

Saturday: Stacking the Shelves with two new purchases!

Bookish Posts I Enjoyed:

Becky at Blogs of a Bookaholic talked about the ten stages of bookshelf reorganization.

Falling Down the Bookhole and The Loony Teen Writer both did bookshelf tours!
