Weekly Novel Rewind (37)

Posted September 22, 2018 by Madalyn || 6 Comments

Novel Rewind is our version of a weekly wrap-up post. We will be linking up to Stacking the Shelves and The Sunday Post.

Life Updates

I’m happy to report I had a decidedly better week this week! I worked pretty much every day, so it was nice to be back on a more regular schedule. Thursday night, my friends and I went to karaoke at an Irish pub in Midtown, and it was so much fun. My friend Jamee and I brought the house down with a Fleetwood Mac duet, and I also sang some ABBA and Kacey Musgraves, of course. Friday night, I went to a friend’s senior voice recital, which was soooooo fantastic. I was scared to go back to the School of Music since I’m not taking classes this semester and didn’t wanna talk to people and deal with the weird judgement, but it actually was totally fine. This weekend, we’re having a surprise party for one of my best friends’ birthdays, so that should be really fun.

Book Haul

For Review:

A YA contemporary that deals with the aftermath of the Irish Troubles???? Yes, please. I can’t wait for this one– thanks, Turner Publishing!

Books Read/Currently Reading

Read:

I’m participating in the #ContemporaryAThon this week, which is why I’ve gotten so much reading done! Most of these fell somewhere between “okay” and “pretty good,” but there were two standouts: my reread of Vicious, which has cemented its place as my favorite Schwab book to date, and Tyler Johnson Was Here, which was brutal and honest and necessary.

Currently Reading:

These are the last two books on my #ContemporaryAThon TBR, so hopefully I can knock them out this weekend! I’m listening to the audio of The Last Time I Lied and enjoying it so far. I can’t wait to dive into Serious Moonlight because, duh, Jenn Bennett.

Currently Obsessing Over

I have had this song on repeat all week, and this video is beautifully done.


How was your week? Have you read any of the books I mentioned?

  1. I already know Serious Moonlight is going to be amazing. I can’t believe it doesn’t come out until April. The wait is killing me. I hope you love it! Glad to hear your week was better. Karaoke is always a good time. I think if we all karaoked more, we’d be much happier.

  2. I hope you manage to still find time for yourself, lovely! And have fun on the birthday surprise! 💕 Super jealous you’re reading Serious Moonlight! I’ve only read one Jenn book so far but I loved it!

  3. I NEED NEED NEED to read Toil and Trouble! EEEEk! Miss you and can’t wait to see you again for future book events! Hopefully, Morgan Matson will write a book for next summer!

  4. Glad you had a better week! I need to participate in a readathon soon so I can make more excuses to read more than normal lol, looks like you got a lot of reading done for contemporaryathon. So excited to hear your thoughts on Serious Moonlight!!

  5. Glad to hear you had a good week this week and the karaoke trip sounds like it was such a laugh, I’d be jealous except I’d have to be several drinks in to get up and sing and also I am a terrible singer at the best of times. And you’ve read so many books! I need to reread Vicious I just received my preorder of Vengeful and I think a binge read weekend might be necessary.
