Weekly Wrap-Up: April 1 - 10 2015

I’m linking up to both Stacking the Shelves and The Sunday Post memes this weekend.


Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve spent quite a bit of time getting ready for going on holidays. It’s freaking me out a little that it’s not weeks until I go anymore… it’s down to days! I’m in OK shape, but nowhere near done. Every time I travel for more than a few days I end up either forgetting something really obvious or forgetting to do something, so I’ve tried to be a little more organised this time.

One little benefit of my organisation spree was getting lots blog posts written! I went on a huge review writing binge, which was badly needed. I got eight reviews finished and scheduled, and it’s awesome to have the entire month of April taken care of! I won’t know what happened when I come home and my lovely blog-post-cushion is gone. I have no idea how this helps me with packing, though… but I went along with my mood! It’s not every day the blog-post-writing-gods are on my side.

Speaking of packing, I’m having a little dilemma. I don’t know how many (physical) books to bring with me. I’m thinking two – one for the plane, and one in my checked luggage for later. I doubt I'll get much reading time while I'm in Disney, but I don't want to run out of reading material either...

The books in the picture are the ones I’ve narrowed my choices down to. I’m trying to be strict, but I’m afraid I’ll cave in and bring them all! I’ve sort of decided on Cress already, but I have no idea which of the other three to bring… And this is where you come in! Which one should I pick?? I've heard amazing things about all three... but I'd like to know which one you think is the best!

Books I Got

For Review

From a Distant Star by Karen McQuestion

Only one book this week, and it’s a review book from Netgalley. I LOVE the cover so much, and the premise sounds really interesting. (Thanks to Skyscape/Amazon Publishing!)

What I Read Recently

I’m currently reading City of Fae, and it’s so much fun! I haven’t read Urban Fantasy in quite a while, and it’s a lovely change of pace.

Have a fab week, and happy reading!


  1. I'd go for All Our Yesterdays out of the books that you're choosing from! :-) I really enjoyed that book. I hope you have a great holiday! Chrissi Reads

  2. I've read All Our Yesterdays and I liked it, and I'm sure you will too haha. I STILL NEED TO READ THE WINNER'S CURSE. And yes you should bring along ALL the books :P

  3. Oh wow. I don't think I'd get any reading done while in Disney! It's DISNEY! ;)

    One book or two should be perfect depending on your reading speed and ability to, you know, read while on your way to the happiest place on earth! LOL! (I still love referring to it as that!)

    Nice new reads too! hope you enjoy them all and enjoy your trip!!
