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!
I don’t have a “mug shot” today because had cub scout rank advancement and a family gathering. So here is some more “mug” envy.
*I wish I could remember the website for this mug. If I do I will update this post.
If you have a Sunday post like this, please leave a comment. I’d love to check it out!
- The Story of Our Lives By Helen Warner
Just got started!!
Here’s all the posts from this past week, in case you missed it!
To Kill A Kingdom by Alexandra Christo
Some people relate this book to the Little Mermaid. So I went into reading this book with that notion in mind.
That was not the feeling I got. What I got was so much better. Elian and Lira are two gorgeously flawed character who are pushing against what they feel is a preordained life. When their worlds collide its blood, angst, fireworks and mistrust.
This book was a beautiful adventure I would happily take again and again.
Here is the Goodreads synopsis:
Princess Lira is siren royalty and the most lethal of them all. With the hearts of seventeen princes in her collection, she is revered across the sea. Until a twist of fate forces her to kill one of her own. To punish her daughter, the Sea Queen transforms Lira into the one thing they loathe most—a human. Robbed of her song, Lira has until the winter solstice to deliver Prince Elian’s heart to the Sea Queen or remain a human forever.
The ocean is the only place Prince Elian calls home, even though he is heir to the most powerful kingdom in the world. Hunting sirens is more than an unsavory hobby—it’s his calling. When he rescues a drowning woman in the ocean, she’s more than what she appears. She promises to help him find the key to destroying all of sirenkind for good—But can he trust her? And just how many deals will Elian have to barter to eliminate mankind’s greatest enemy?
My reads for next week are:
- Other People’s Houses by Abbi Waxman
- Call Me By Your Name by Andre Aciman
We are going camping for Memorial Day weekend which means a 4 day trip. I am really hoping to get a lot of poolside reading done. 😉
This week was a little heck with the finalizing of grades for the end of school. Oh almost forgot we had 50s day this weekend. It was totally cool to dress up with the kids.
The weekend however was great. We have a Saturday tradition of getting donut from the local bakery (yes the same one I went to as a kid). They are da bomb. Nothing too crazy but amazing quality. They even gave me a shoutout on Instagram.
Nathan also had rank advancement for cub scouts. This is where all his work has earned him his Wolf rank and he moves on to work his Bear rank. We has a great time decorating our cake. I was nervous in my first really big role as Cubmaster but I think everyone had a awesome time.
4 School Days Until Summer!!!!
- Tread the waters of life and make it to the end of school.
- STILL TOO BUSY with end of year to really get into reading — I am 4 books behind my Goodreads pace.
- Enjoy our first summer camping trip.
