Welcome to my weekly wrap-up! Here is where you can see my books read during the past week, books I have added to my shelves, any bookish happenings and the like. I have linked to Stacking the Shelves, Saturday Situation and to Caffeinated Book Reviewer’s Sunday Wrap-Up. So check out what I’ve been up to this past week.
Books Added This Week
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo was on every best of Fall 2015 list I saw. I am glad my reservation finally came in so I can read it too. – Ketterdam: a bustling hub of international trade where anything can be had for the right price–and no one knows that better than criminal prodigy Kaz Brekker. Kaz is offered a chance at a deadly heist that could make him rich beyond his wildest dreams. But he can’t pull it off alone…
Summer Secrets by Jane Green – Jane Green is one of my favorite chick lit authors, and I reserve all her new ones at the library and then end up buying all of her books once I find them used. – Living in London in her twenties, Cat had it all–a great job and wonderful friends. But with the good came the bad–a party every night, wreaking havoc, and blackouts. When she discovers the father she never knew she had, living in Nantucket, it sends her into a spiral, costing her the new family she had desperately craved.

The Blackmail Of Evelynn Faust Shirley Anne Edwards. I thought this was a very interesting take on a teen drama. – Evelynn Faust suffers from horrible insomnia and paranoia. The summer before her senior year of high school should be one of the best summers of her life. But she’s tormented by guilt and an addiction that haunts her every waking moment. Evelynn is a drug dealer who also craves the drug she sells. The money and the popularity that come with it aren’t bad either. But when she’s caught dealing on school property by Eric Wagner, the respected and admired police chief’s son, the game is over.
Reasons to Love a Nerd Like Me by Becky Jerams. This sounds so ridiculously cute! – Scotty Williams is the nerdiest 17-year-old at UK-based Havensdale College – and proud of it. However being a nerd can have its downsides, particularly when you’re constantly being targeted by the school bully Taylor Raven and his cronies. As Scotty tries to navigate his final college years with the aid of his best friend Olive, he also finds himself on the radar of the mysterious and intimidating Vincent Hunter, toughest guy in the Sixth Form. Is Vincent really as bad as he seems? Will Scotty’s darkest secret ever be revealed? Can he ever just finish his last few college years in peace? But most importantly… will any guy ever find the reasons to love a nerd like him?
