Hey y’all! Weekly Wrap Up is a bleep where I give quick recap about my blog, reading adventures, and life in general of the past week. I also may include some rambling!
If you have a Sunday post like this, please leave a comment. I’d love to check it out!
- Songs of Anchilles by Madeliene Miller
This book came to my attention because I had picked Circe for my Book of the Month for March. I discovered that the author had written one before. Mythology has always piqued my interest since we studied Edith Hamilton’s Mythology in high school AP English.
I am about 30 pages in and I am hooked. Told from the POV of Patroclus, it forces you to look about this legend in a different light.
Here’s all the posts from this past week, in case you missed it!
- Homecoming Ranch by Julia London
I really enjoyed this one. Maddie is a hot mess who doesn’t realize life can’t be planned down to the dot. Luke is a hard-working, self-sacrificing son who is trying his hardest to support his dad and brother. The circumstance that brings these two together is not ideal. However they manage to forge a connection that blows both their socks off.
Here is the Goodreads synopsis:
A lonely childhood and an irresponsible mother has led Madeline Pruett to create a predictable, solitary world for herself. But she is shocked from her cushy cocoon when a father she never knew dies and leaves her an inheritance, and two unknown sisters. Madeline intends to fly to Colorado, meet these mysterious sisters, and quickly return to Orlando to close the biggest deal of her budding real estate career.
For years, Luke Kendrick has juggled school and career and rescuing his family from illness, death and financial crisis, all without losing sight of his goals: building and selling his own dream homes. On the verge of realizing his dream, Luke is called home to Pine River to reclaim the ranch his father has inexplicably lost. Luke’s family knows he will put his life on hold to rescue them. . .again.
Luke is not prepared for an uptight yet sexy woman in impractical shoes who thinks his ranch now belongs to her. Madeline isn’t sure how to put order to a rundown ranch, a pair of sisters who do not cooperate, or a place where roads have names like Sometimes Pass and men as ruggedly handsome as Luke Kendrick behave unpredictably.
Sparks fly as Luke and Madeline clash over the future of the ranch. Madeline knows what she wants…until Luke teaches her a thing or two—about breaking down walls, finding home, and the true meaning of family.
My reads for next week are:
- Circe by Madeline Miller
- To Kill a Kingdom By Alexandra Christo
Can I just say this week was a whole lot better than last week…HOLLA! The fam had very few activities to attend so I took the boys to the public library two days this week.
They can’t seem to get enough. LOL I guess that’s a good thing. Plus their activities are da bomb.
I find things are calming down (maybe just in my mind) a bit since we only have 25 days of school left. I am really hoping to get more reading in.
My ultimate goal this weekend was to hang around the house, read and do laundry…MISSION COMPLETED!
It’s nice to slow down every now and then. Sometimes your battery needs to be recharged.
What is your to-go to unwind and recharge?
- Enjoy the last few weeks with my students.
- Get back on pace for my Goodreads Challenge goal cause currently I am 2 book behind…The struggle is real with this. Grrrrrrr!
- Take 15-20 minutes each day for myself
- Continue my Dawson’s Creek-Hulu binge
That’s all y’all…LOL! How was your week? Have you read any of the books I listed…give me the scoop? Any thoughts about my week? Let me know in the comments!
Thanks for stopping by! — xx
