Novel Rewind is our version of a weekly wrap-up post. We will be linking up to Stacking the Shelves and The Sunday Post.
Hi, everyone! Wow, it’s been a MINUTE since I last posted a weekly rewind. Like, since before BookExpo. OOPS. Honestly, my life has been fairly uneventful since I got home from BEA– mostly just the usual work stuff. Last week, my best friend Kate and I attended a free Atlanta Symphony concert in Piedmont Park! It made for such a nice summer evening. We also went out to eat at a vegan restaurant we’ve been wanting to try for ages, and though it was expensive, it was SO SO delicious. I will definitely go back. This week, I went over to my friend Devon’s apartment to watch the RuPaul’s Drag Race reunion episode together! We drank wine and ordered Chinese takeout and generally had an awesome time. I can’t wait for the finale episode next week (I’m #TeamAquaria all the way, btw!)!
This weekend, I’m headed back to NYC for New York Pride! I’ll be walking in the parade with the Delta group. I also have tickets to see Hello, Dolly! on Broadway, starring the one and only Bernadette Peters (!!!!!!), on Saturday night. It’s gonna be a whirlwind weekend, but such a fun one.
I attended Morgan Matson’s event for Save the Date last week and picked up a finished copy to get signed– I’m so happy I now own a physical copy of one of my favorite books of the year! I couldn’t resist buying There There when I saw it on display in the indie bookstore where the signing was held. I grabbed If Birds Fly Back because it was an ebook deal, and I wanna read more of Carlie Sorosiak’s work after loving Wild Blue Wonder.
Yes, I’m still requesting review books after getting home from BEA *hides in shame*. However, I’m SO SO excited to get to both of these!
Books Read/Currently Reading
I have a lot of reading to update you guys on! Although Perdy and When Katie Met Cassidy were both letdowns, the rest of what I’ve read the past two weeks has been EXCELLENT. Odd One Out and To Be Honest both had such incredible representation, and I saw a lot of myself in them. City of Ghosts was as awesome as I expected, given Schwab wrote it. Little Do We Know was so unexpectedly emotional and lovely!
I am finding Sadie exactly as unputdownable as people say… I NEED to know what happens! I’m also loving the podcast element. I’m also bringing Unbroken with me to NYC, and I plan to start it after I finish Sadie!
Currently Obsessing Over
Queer Eye Season 2 // I mean, duh. Does this even require explanation? I already watched every episode of the new season, and yes, I cried at least once during all of them. (Fun fact: they filmed an entire scene in the market where I work and I FREAKED THE HELL OUT WHEN I SAW IT.)
How was your week? Have you read any of the books I mentioned? What are you currently obsessing over?
