MY WEEK ON WEDNESDAY | #1



Wednesdays used to be when I participated in a link-up by the name of WWW Wednesdays, hosted by Should Be Reading blog. But for weeks there has been no link up post, and I suspect this one is no longer. So I decided perhaps it's time to come up with my own weekly feature that serves the same purpose. I'll start off going over the same questions (what I read in the past week, what I'm reading now and what's up next) but I might add in some cool stuff I found on the internet or something I've read on another blog that really piqued my interest. Open up the format a bit, you know? So without further ado, here we go!

Just shelved:


While I was on vacation I had a rather predictable urge to re-read Harry Potter. I normally try to force myself to resist, but this time I went with it. And it was everything I knew it would be. Currently struggling with the urge to continue re-reading!

Currently reading:



These are both review copies. In traveling and then wrapping up my old job, I haven't had time for reading as much as I'd like in the past few weeks, and I'm a bit behind. But I'm making good progress in both of these and hoping to be all caught up soon! Of the two I'm really enjoying One More Thing. Hilarious, smart and creative.

Next up on the TBR list:



I'm also VERY behind in my Green Gables Read-Along (sorry, Lindsey!) so I have to get stuck into the Anne books. But I've also got so many other books I'm really looking forward to reading, so it's going to be hard to focus! I haven't found time for the new Veronica Mars book yet, and I still want to finish Island Beneath the Sea which I began while on vacation.

Cool stuff I came across this week:



This week's Top Ten Tuesday was "Favourite Literary Heroines." Hermione was one of my first picks, obviously. Then I came across this and it was perfect.

In other news:


My friend Julianne over at Outlandish Lit nominated me for an award! I'm currently working on a whole post on the topic, but go check her out - and THANK YOU, JULIANNE!

That's it for this week! Let me know if you like the new format, and if there's anything you'd like to see more or less of in my weekly roundup! I'm open to suggestions and feedback! And, as always, share what you've been reading/doing in the comments!

  1. A HP re-read is always called for. I can't even count the number of times I've re-read them. I'm currently part way through the 5th one, and am not exactly sure when I'll get back to it - we all know the mood will eventually strike :)

    Let me know your thoughts on V Mars when you get to it... I have LOTS of opinions and feelings about this one, but don't want to spoil anything for you. Hit me up on twitter when you're through it :)

    Again, it was great chatting today and I will be sure to be tuning into your blog from now on! Love making new bookish friends!

    1. It WILL always strike eventually! Same here - I think I've read all of them three times but then I've also dipped in and out as the mood strikes (and it strikes often). I only wish I were younger so I could have grown up with the Potterverse!

      Oooh will do! I've been hearing so much about it lately so I think it might be time to dig in sooooon.....

      Likewise on all counts! :)

  2. Why fight the urge? HP deserves re-reading. (I say as I still need to read the last 2 in the series - ack!)

    I'm jealous of the Veronica Mars book! Want!

    1. I definitely agree on HP! I dunno.... if I hadn't finished the series I might be tempted to save it. It's hard when it's over, even when you know you can re-read! I've heard mixed things about VMars, but I am definitely excited about it.

  3. You're welcome!! Looking forward to seeing your hate-ku-less post.
    I'm into this new feature, though. You could probably make it a thing with a link up of your own. If that isn't too stressful of an idea haha.

    1. Haha! Yes, hate-ku less, but I hate enough as a matter of course that you don't really NEED more. If you want me to, I can make it a link up! It's not stressful (I did them on my last blog), I just don't know if anyone would really want to!
