Wednesday Weekly Wrap Up {1}

Posted April 10th, 2019 by in Wednesday Weekly Wrap Up / 2 comments

The Wednesday Weekly Wrap Up is a way for me to share what’s been happening in my life through the week. It will be mostly book related but may include some stuff going on in my real life. It was inspired by Caffeinated Reviewer’s The Sunday Post.

This week has been pretty laid back. I did make a trip back to IL and it was a tough trip this time. There was just a lot going on and it seemed that if it could go wrong it did. As is working with any government entity my job can be incredibly frustrating. It seems like if there is a way to make something unduly difficult, the state finds it. Insert eye roll here.

I did finally finish The Reckoning by John Grisham. It was my first John Grisham book and I’m not really sure how I feel about it. More to come in my review. I also got one book closer to being caught up with my nostalgia reads! I just started Crooked Kingdom and that book is going to put me in my grave. 100 pages in and already I’ve set the book down twice because I couldn’t handle the stress. Considering there hasn’t been a lot of reading the last two weeks that’s a lot for me!

Previously on Once Upon a Chapter:

At the Mountain’s Edge by Genevieve Graham
The Loch Ness Papers by Paige Shelton
Wicked Saints by Emily A. Duncan

Crooked Kingdom by Leigh BardugoI just started Crooked Kingdom but it’s taken me a bit to get into it because I keep setting it down when things get too intense for me. Now that I’m more focused on reading, I’m hoping to tear through this one. I did see a spoiler on Twitter recently but it wasn’t a full blown spoiler so that may be making me more anxious than I would have been otherwise.

Baby-Sitters' Summer Vacation by Ann M. MartinThis will help get me caught up with my BSC Nostalgia read. I really am enjoying myself with these books. I can’t wait to see what this one brings. It is a completely new read for me. We’re finally starting to make it to the books that I have never read due to growing up without the Internet. Lol!

The Summer Retreat by Sheila RobertsThe Summer Retreat by Sheila Roberts just came across my path and I jumped on the opportunity to read and review it! It’s a small town romance with sisters. How could I not? As this is being released later this month I thought I ought to up this one so I can be done with it before it is released.

Claudia and the Sad Goodbye by Ann M. MartinI’m not ready for this one yet!! I’m 34 and still have both of my grandmothers. I don’t want to think of the day when I’ll be in Claudia’s shoes. This one will be a hard one for sure. I don’t care if it was written for tweens. We all have grandmothers and the empathy is going to come for me in this one.

How is your week shaping up? What exciting things are you reading?!

      Crooked Kingdom has been good! I’m about halfway through and it has been intense at times. My husband and I still have our grandmothers. It’s not an idea that sits comfortably but I imagine most of us would say that.
