The Sunday Wrap-Up{72}

My Week

 Help, my family has fallen into home remodeling purgatory. I am becoming increasingly convinced that our house has become stuck in some kind of time loop in which work is accomplished but the project never actually gets done. I’m living in the Twilight Zone here, people. I miss living in an apartment where I didn’t have to have conversations about termites or being warned not to open the door and fall three feet to the ground. I also miss living in a place that has more than one stoplight, but one of these is more important to me at the moment than the other one.

Other than that, I’ve just been super productive & busy. I did get a lot of writing accomplished this week, though, so that was a plus!

On Book Blog Bake

Monday I reviewed Drowning Instinct by Ilsa J. Black.
Tuesday was all about the top 10 bookish problems I have.
Wednesday I reviewed When Joss Met Matt, aka my favorite NA so far.
Thursday I talked about possible ways I could organize my bookshelf.
Friday I reviewed No Parking at the End Times.


Dangerous Boys by Abigail Haas(re-read)
Some Girls Are by Courtney Summers
Devoted by Jennifer Mathieu


None! Wow, living in my small hometown again really does wonders for curbing impulsive book buying.

 Question of the Week:

Oh gosh, I’m having a lot of trouble coming up with a question this week. Hmm. What’s a popular song(meaning a song that is either currently popular or was at one time popular–doesn’t have to be recent) that rubs you the wrong way? I’m convinced we all have one of these. Mine is Hey Ya. So much of my middle school experience was based around avoiding that song.

  1. I really need to read Dangerous Girls because you love it so much. But really, I read so many things just because you tell me to. I don’t even know what it’s about but I’m going to request it from the library soonish. YOU HAVE TOO MUCH POWER HERE.

    • Stormy

      YES YES Dangerous Girls & Dangerous Boys are both must-reads!(And they’re not related! Not even really companions. There are no characters in common. They’re just written in a similar vein, so either one. DG is more of a murder mystery & DB is more of a psychological thriller). EEP I’M MAD WITH BOOK RECOMMENDING POWER. But that’s always so scary because what happens when eventually I recommend a book you don’t like? *is nervous*

  2. I might get hate for this, and the tune is definitely infectious, but Blank Space by Taylor Swift totally bothers me lyrically… it probably doesn’t help the first time I saw it I was watching the music video and I was just like WHAT THE HECK.

    • Stormy

      Aw, I love Blank Space. Like it’s probably my favorite song Taylor’s ever made. BUT no music hate here. We all have those songs.

  3. Haha. I really never liked that Holla Back Girl song that Gwen Stefani sang. The one where she spells bananas out.

    Sorry home remodeling is making life stressful. But just think how nice everything will be when it’s done.

    • Stormy

      Oh I’m not a fan of that song either! It doesn’t annoy me in the same way Hey Ya does, but I do ignore it when possible.
