Novel Rewind is our version of a weekly wrap-up post. We will be linking up to Stacking the Shelves and The Sunday Post.
Once again, it’s been a bit since I’ve posted a weekly rewind! I got back from my New York trip with my best friends last Friday, and ever since my life has pretty much consisted of work, cleaning my apartment/doing laundry/etc., and scrambling to catch up on blog posts and YouTube videos that I’m behind on due to my computer hard drive mishap at the end of last month. Oh, and watching the World Cup, of course! Who are you guys rooting for in the final on Sunday?
I took my friends to The Strand while we were in NYC, and obviously, I couldn’t escape without picking up some books. They have such a great selection of graphic novels, so I picked up two I’ve been really excited about. I checked out the audio of Undead Girl Gang from my library and can’t wait to get into it!
I was so excited to see Lost Soul, Be at Peace in my mailbox (thank you, Candlewick!) after picking up Honor Girl (its predecessor) last week! Now I plan on marathoning them back-to-back. Thanks to Soho Press and HarperCollins for the other two pretties– both of which I cannot wait to pick up!
Books Read/Currently Reading
I had a really great reading week! Unclaimed Baggage was awesome– one of my favorite contemporaries I’ve read this year, for sure. I listened to the audiobook of Noah Hypnotik (which, by the way, was a great audiobook), and I enjoyed every second of that weird ride. I couldn’t stop reading. The Wicked King took a while to get into, but I couldn’t put it down after about the halfway point. It was a solid sequel to what’s shaping up to be one of my favorite YA fantasy series. The first volume of The Backstagers was a total joy to read, and I can’t wait to continue the series!
I just started Pride and am thoroughly enjoying it so far! I mean, a P&P retelling set in a gentrified Brooklyn? Yes, please. I can’t wait to get further into the audio of Undead Girl Gang.
Currently Obsessing Over
Vintage Vibes Playlist on Spotify // This is pretty much my perfect summer playlist. It’s all recent-ish music releases that have a vintage feel to them.
How was your week? Have you read any of the books I mentioned? What are you currently obsessing over?
