I hope everyone is having a wonder Sunday. Every Sunday I will be linking my weekly recap to The Sunday Post, Showcase Sunday, Talk of the Town, Saturday Situation, and Stacking the Shelves! These are amazing blogs, so please skip over and show them some love.
This week was #authorathon…read-a-thons back to back is not always a good thing. I might have gotten some reading done but I not much of anything else.
I think the farthest from my home I ventured was in town to do some grocery shopping. Of course, I took this time to stop by my local thrift store to see what they had…I look for books. And then I stopped by the bookstore to touch ALL the books. I left empty handed there, but that was probably because I want so many and couldn’t make up my mind.
I am excited how well this week went for reading. I read an ARC copy of Paper Girls. Finished up Wolf by Wolf from genrethon and then dived into Rainbow Rowell. Loving every minute of it. Maybe it was just the right books at the right time. I wasn’t a big fan of Fan Girl and Carry On, but I enjoyed all three of these. During this time, I listened to The 5th Wave because the library said it was my turn.
I am just starting Kindred Spirits by Rainbow Rowell. This will finish up my #authorathon. I will probably have this done before the day is over since it is about 100 pages.
I will be diving into these this week. I normally don’t know what I will be reading because I am a big mood reader, but I have found that having a TBR helps sometimes. However, in this case…that is not the case. Soulless and Not a Drop to Drink are interlibrary loans that have to be back soon and I can’t put them on hold 😦 So I plan on consuming them. As for City of Heavenly Fire, I am listening to that one on audio. I put this one on hold when I started to listen to The 5th Wave, so now I am bringing it back out.
If by any chance that I finish these books this week, then I will be digging back out some that I put on hold that I didn’t finish during #genrethon.

AND MY MOST FAVORITE FIND THIS WEEK…..
I took a trip to my local thrift store. I love going there because I find some great books there all the time, mostly in brand new condition. Well this time I hit Jackpot. I got The Fault of Our Stars, The Hobbit, and Bridget Jones from the picture above, which I was happy about because I wanted to buy two of them, but then just as I was about to cash out I turned my head and found….
Isn’t it beautiful??
It is in almost perfect condition…hardcover….for only $5.00. I almost fell over. I wanted to buy the Hunger Games. I have already read the trilogy, but I wanted them for myself since this is a reread trilogy, but there was always other books to buy. I am still doing my happy dance.
