Novel Rewind is our version of a weekly wrap-up post. We will be linking up to Stacking the Shelves and The Sunday Post.
I hope everyone had a lovely and relaxing long weekend! I had the best time in Orlando at BookNet Fest– my wrap up for that went up earlier this week, if you wanna check out what I got up to there! School- and life-wise, this was a quiet week, for the most part. It’s looking more and more like Hurricane Irma might hit my city, so I’m keeping an eye on that going into the weekend. I’ll probably go wait out the storm at my brother’s house in the suburbs instead of staying in my fifth-floor city apartment! If you or your loved ones are in the path of the storm, please, please stay safe!
Books Read/Currently Reading
I listened to Sleeping Giants on audio, and the audiobook was one of the best I’ve EVER come across (it’s in the same vein as the Illuminae audiobooks, almost podcast-style with a full cast of narrators). I’m itching to get my hands on the sequel, but since my library doesn’t have it, I’m stuck waiting until my next Audible credit comes in. Giant Days, Vol. 1 was cute, but I’m not sure I liked it enough to continue the series.
Ugh, guysssss. I’m in a terrible reading slump right now (as evidenced by the fact that the only two books I finished this week were both in non-traditional formats). I’m really enjoying Speak Easy, Speak Love— I promise, I am!– but it’s taking me FOREVER to get through. HELP.
Currently Obsessing Over
Upbeet // My friend Jamee took me to this new-ish spot here in Atlanta this week, and I really loved it! It’s kind of like Chipotle, but for making your own grain bowls and salads. The bowl I tried was DELICIOUS, as was their matcha lemonade! They also have smoothies, smoothie bowls, and a coffee bar that I can’t wait to try. I definitely see this becoming one of my go-to “fast food” places in town!
How was your week? Tell us about what you’re currently reading and/or obsessing over in the comments!
