Bookish Recap

On the Blog This Week

Manga Mondays:


Read Outside the Box!:


Books I Read This Week

-After last week's busy week, I've had a light reading week this time.

Delirium by Lauren Oliver

-I can't believe it's taken me this long to read Lauren's popular novel. I thought it was pretty good, but have some major complaints as well. I'll expound upon this in my review.

The Bird Artist by Howard Norman

-Reading this for Book Club. Actually, it's going to be a DNF. I'm halfway through and can't stand to read any more. Too boring.

Books Received This Week

Books for Review

Until I Die by Amy Plum

-Thanks to Edelweiss!!! I have to read it before it expires on Tuesday.

Reunited by Hilary Weisman Graham

-Thanks to Simon & Schuster. For an upcoming blog tour.

Library Stash

Belles by Jen Calonita

-Haven't started this yet, but I love Jen's books so I'm excited.

CD Stash

My Head is an Animal by Of Monsters and Men

-An Icelandic group (sings in English). If you like Mumford & Sons or Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros...

-Check out my favorite song "Little Talks" (although the video is really strange).

"Love Interruption" by Jack White (single from his new album Blunderbuss)

-I've never been a huge Jack White fan, but I am obsessed with his new single. The lyrics are extremely dark, but make you think. And the sound is captivating.


  1. Oh my, I haven't read Delirium yet! nor Divergent, lol! I guess I'm not exactly one that follows the hype, eeek! I cannot wait to read Belles, even more so since I found out that she lives so close to me! Reunited sounds like a cute fun read, I'll have to keep an eye out for that one!
    Lots of good ones this week, enjoy them :)

    Here's mine:

  2. i'm so intrigued by belles. gotta admit the cover really draws me in.

  3. I haven't read any Amy Plum books yet but I definitely need to start them this summer.

    Happy reading! :)

  4. I love Of Monsters and Men (that video is kooky/cool) Everyone looks at me weird when I say that they sound like M&S though. At least you agree lol

    I love that Jack White song too. I hadn't seen the video before though.

    Reunited has an adorable cover. I'm going to have to check that one out.

  5. Oooh, interested to see all your thoughts about Delirium! And great books too, Until I Die sounds great! Happy reading :).

  6. Jack White! I miss him. Now I have a craving to watch Cold Mountain. LOL

  7. I still need to read Die For Me but the series looks really good! Happy reading! :)
