Weekly Wrap Up #7, Staking the Shelves #23: It’s Been a While…

Weekly Wrap Up

Hello, lovelies! 

It’s been almost a month since I’ve actually been active on the blogosphere, and I am freaking out! I feel like a part of me is missing! I know that this is usually posted on the weekends but… whatever xD

I’ve been swamped with college work. It’s been crazy. Two straight weeks of tests every.single.day. and I think my brain can’t stand another test. I think I automatically think in French now; my French class has been INTENSE. (C’est terrible) 

Anyways, I’ve also been a bit busy because I have a job! It’s nothing fancy, just selling cell-phone accessories, but I’m enjoying it. I like that it doesn’t really interfere with college or even with the time I usually designate to reading.

I’m still reading books, but it’s taking me way too long to actually finish a book. I think my brain isn’t capable of focusing on books anymore.

In some really (awesome to me) news, Katy Perry is coming to Puerto Rico! The last concert I went to was 30 Seconds to Mars last October, and I’ve been waiting to see if I could go to another. Imagine Dragons is also coming, but if I have to decide between both, I’d really love to see Katy. Ugh decisions, decisions. (Probably won’t be able to go to either since they’re so expensive, haha)

I’m currently reading:

Boomerang by Noelle August: the audio is really good and I love listening to it while on the train and while I’m driving back home. It makes the ride all the more enjoyable. Plus it’s a NA romance that is far from cliche!


Etiquette and Espionage by Gail Carriger: I’m actually picking this book up again because I had put it on hold for a very long time (almost a year) I’m liking it much more this time around!


A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin: No idea what compelled me to read it in the first place, but now that I’ve started it I’M COMPLETELY OBSESSED. It’s exactly the same but completely different from the series. I want nothing more than to just keep reading. But darnit I have priorities.

How am I doing with my Goodreads goal?

I think pretty good. While the picture says I’m behind, I don’t really feel that way. I’m reading multiple books at once, so I can easily stay on track.

Who I’m Following on Twitter:

I recently discovered some pretty AMAZING Twitter Parody accounts that I think you should all follow.

Other than Typical YA Heroine, there’s TypicalNAHero, BroodingYAHero, TropeHero, TropeHeroine, HeroineofNA, and I’m sure I must be missing some! But they are so hilarious and amazing. It’s just what you need after reading a particularly horrible book.

I’m also following several profiles related to The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater. I am currently reading the series and I’m so high on everything about it. So… I found Twitter accounts for each of the characters and now I’m feeling all the feels again. There are a couple of spoilers here and there, so just be careful 😉

Stacking the Shelves

It’s safe to say my book ban BROKE a long time ago. Woops.

If you want to know what books I get during the week, you should most definitely follow me on Instagram. I post lots of pictures of books 🙂

I only have one thing to say, and that’s BLUE LILY, LILY BLUE OMFG! I really want to forget all my books and just read that one RIGHT NOW. But I have responsibilities, alas.

Stay tuned for a review of Liars, Inc. by Paula Stokes. It was AMAZING.

That’s it for now! Thanks for reading all this 🙂
