Weekly Wrap Up (16)

The last time I wrote a Weekly Wrap Up post, I was getting ready to move to Traverse City - now I've been here for 8 months. Sheesh! Time flies, I guess. Next week I'm heading to ALA Midwinter in Chicago, which promises to be quite the adventure. I hope to see some of you there!

This week on the blog:
  • Saturday I featured a few of my recently read favorites with quick recommendation blurbs - Recently Read: Upcoming Reads to Add to Your TBR Pile

  • Tuesday presented a roundup of some of my favorite cover designs for upcoming reads, including new titles by Jennifer Lynn Barnes & Jo Knowles, as well as some great looking debuts - Cover Reveals

What did you read this week? I love recommendations! Have you read any of my new reads this week - what did you think?


  1. This week I'll (finally!) finish reading The Vanishing Season. I've been very busy. So far, I love it! And I order All The Bright Places. I hope to receive it soon, I can't wait to read it. I remember reading that you like that book, I can't wait to make my own opinion about it! Have a good time in Chicago!


Make sure you whisper, I'm hiding!
