Sunday-Wrap-up-2

My Week

This week was soooo slow, and I don’t know why! It wasn’t a bad week by any means, though. I was very productive at work and at home, and definitely feel sort of more in control of life, which is ALWAYS  a good thing. Also, I finally watched Tangled, so I can say I’m almost caught up on my Disney movies. Friday was a bit crazy work-wise(just busy stuff) but I’m glad it’s the weekend!

On Book Blog Bake

Monday I reviewed Ask Again Later by Liz Czusak. It was cute and fun!
Tuesday I shared another edition of looking forward & looking behind.
Wednesday I reviewed The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater, which pleasantly surprised me.
Thursday I introduced a new feature: I Rec’d it.
Friday I reviewed The Crown of Embers by Rae Carson.
And because I have a huge backlog of written reviews, I even posted one on Saturday(so rare around here!), and posted my review for The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski.

Favorite 5

Book Therapy Session @ The Book Addict’s Guide

Do you ever set crazy reading or blogging goals for yourself and then stress yourself out? I know I sometimes do, so I thought Brittany’s post on this subject was fantastic.

Writing Feminist Male Protagonist @ thelifeguardlibrariantumblr

I found this on tumblr (linking the post with additional commentary because I loved it), and I really struck a chord. As a writer, I tend to write a lot of male main characters. I’m not sure why my stories have been so drawn to them, but they have. And writing feminist male protagonists is really really important to me.

My Blogging and Web Developing Tools of the Trade @NoseGraze

I thought Ashley’s post on her tools of the trade was really interesting(and potentially very useful!)

A Question:

I really enjoy doing these Sunday wrap-ups, mostly for my own documenting purposes, but lately I’ve felt a bit. . . stale in them. I’m not great at link sharing and collecting like some people, which is why I generally just share my favorite 5. But I’m interested in adding in other things to the mix. What do you like to see in weekly wrap-up posts?

      Thank you!
      I enjoyed Tangled, but I wish the stakes would have been higher. It didn’t have the same sense of urgency I think a lot of my favorite Disney movies do, because the only people really endangered were Flynn Rider & Rapunzel herself.

  1. I think you’re re-caps are wonderful as they are, but if you’re looking for other stuff, maybe your favourite song of the week, or newest book added to tbr? Just something simple 🙂
