Novel Rewind is our version of a weekly wrap up post. The three of us will be alternating weeks. We will be linking up to Stacking the Shelves and The Sunday Post.
I finished my classes for this semester! Hallelujah. I am so ready to put this school year behind me and relax a bit. Now, only a few finals stand between me and the official end of the semester. Last Sunday was Easter, and I had so much fun hanging out with my family on my grandparents’ farm and seeing all the new baby calves (I even got to bottle-feed one!!)! This weekend is our opera production for the semester, and I can’t wait to go see my wonderfully talented friends perform one of my favorite operas! They’re doing a film-noir style production of Mozart’s Don Giovanni, so there’s really no way it won’t be amazing. Otherwise, I’m hoping to get some hours in at work this week while I have some downtime, and, of course, I’m hoping to get in some quality reading time.
As for blog updates, ICYMI, I’m looking for a co-blogger (or two) to help me out here at Novel Ink! I would love some of you to apply. 🙂
I saw that the Kindle edition of Salt by Nayyirah Waheed was free on Amazon right now, and I immediately jumped on it! Nayyirah Waheed is one of my favorite Instagram follows; I just adore her poetry. I’ve heard nothing but phenomenal things about this collection!
Thank you to everyone who traded with me! <3
My review copy ban has officially ended! I’m finally caught up on reviews. Girls Made of Snow and Glass sounds incredible– it’s a feminist retelling of Snow White (and I thiiiiink there might be an f/f relationship?)! The Love Interest is one of my most-anticipated releases of the year, so I’m super excited to be participating in a blog tour for it!
Books Read & Currently Reading
It was a great reading week! Duels & Deception was super cute (review here). The Names They Gave Us was beyond incredible and I’m still trying to gather my thoughts enough to draft a review. I haven’t felt this kind of emotional reaction to a book in a long while. Just know you all need to preorder it. Seeking Mansfield was okay; I’ll have a review up for it soon. 🙂
Y’all. I am LOVING this one so far.
Currently Obsessing Over
What’s the Tee? with RuPaul and Michelle Visage // I mean, y’all know I love Drag Race, and so I really don’t know why it took me so long to get around to listening to Ru’s podcast. It’s fantastic, funny, and endlessly entertaining.
“Sam’s New Thing” from NPR // NPR has been piloting Sam Sanders’ (formerly a host of my beloved NPR Politics Podcast) new podcast over on the NPR One app! It doesn’t have an official title so far, but I am really enjoying it. I just love Sam Sanders as a human!
That’s all for this week! What books did you pick up this week, and what are you currently obsessing over?
