My Week In A Nutshell

My Week In A Nutshell 3/11/2017

My week in a nutshell is a weekly post I put up on Sundays to share what happened on and off the blog during the week. The Sunday Post is a meme sponsored by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog and showcase books and things we have received.

Happy Sunday book nerds! It’s the first day of Read-O-Rama Round 6. I am not sure how much reading I’ll get in today though since I have some cleaning to do and errands to run. I was going to go to the Tucson Festival of Books this weekend, but had a last minute change of plans. I’m kind of bummed about that because I was looking forward to it, but it is what it is. I’m looking at it as an opportunity to actually get the stuff on my to-do list done…well some of it anyway. I will try my best to at least get one book read before I go to bed. I know for sure that I won’t have enough time to do much reading during the week because life gets crazy. If you’d like to know what books I selected for my TBR you can check out my video here:

I really loved this collection of stories from Cisneros’ life. I listened to this as an audio book that was narrated by the author. It was very conversational, like she was telling me her life stories over coffee or tea. I loved it.

My goal is to get to page 130 today. Fingers crossed I can do it! I’m learning quite a bit about Hamilton’s early life right now. Hamilton did not get an easy start in life and from what I have read so far this made him determined to make something of himself. I’m barely on page 76 though, so I have so much more to go. I can’t wait to find out more about his interesting life.

As with all of Moore’s books this one is a bit odd. It is really weird and intriguing so far. I’m hoping this will be the book I can finish today. Fingers crossed!

I’m reading the physical book and listening to the audio on this one. I’m about 25% into the book so far. It is moving pretty quickly for me. I haven’t quite figured out how the magic or power of the forest works yet. I’m hoping Novik goes into it more so I can get a better understanding of it soon.I have so many questions right now, I’m worried I will get to the end with only half of them answered. Also, I’m not sure how I feel about certain directions part of the story is going towards. I just don’t think it is necessary for the overall plot, but we’ll see. I’m not even halfway through so there is still quite a bit of story to get through.
