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, the Saturday Situation, the Saturday Review of Books, Talk of the Town, Bought, Borrowed & Bagged, The Sunday Salon, Caffeinated Book Reviewer’s Sunday Wrap-Up and Mailbox Monday. So check out what I’ve been up to this past week.
Books Added This Week
All the Missing Girls by Megan Miranda – It’s been ten years since Nicolette Farrell left her rural hometown after her best friend, Corinne, disappeared from Cooley Ridge without a trace. Back again to tie up loose ends and care for her ailing father, Nic is soon plunged into a shocking drama that reawakens Corinne’s case and breaks open old wounds long since stitched…. Told backwards—Day 15 to Day 1—from the time Annaleise goes missing, Nic works to unravel the truth about her younger neighbor’s disappearance, revealing shocking truths about her friends, her family, and what really happened to Corinne that night ten years ago.
The Trouble with Lexie by Lexie James escaped: after being abandoned by her alcoholic father, and kicked out of the apartment to make room for her mother’s boyfriend, Lexie made it on her own. She earned a Masters degree, conquered terrifying panic attacks, got engaged to the nicest guy she’d ever met, and landed a counseling job at the prestigious Ruxton Academy, a prep school for the moneyed children of the elite. But as her wedding date nears, Lexie has doubts. Yes, she’s created the stable life she craved as a child, but is stability really what she wants?
100 Days of Cake by There are only three things that can get seventeen-year-old Molly Byrne out of bed these days: her job at FishTopia, the promise of endless episodes of Golden Girls, and some delicious lo mein. You see, for the past two years, Molly’s been struggling with something more than your usual teenage angst. Her shrink, Dr. Brooks, isn’t helping much, and neither is her mom, who is convinced that baking the perfect cake will cure Molly of her depression—as if cake can magically make her rejoin the swim team, get along with her promiscuous sister, or care about the SATs. Um, no. Never going to happen.

This Week in Review…
So you totally see the number of books read this week correctly. The really sad thing is as I write this on Friday night I am still not finished, but I am only 40 minutes away from finishing per my Kindle, so it will get done tonight. Work has been challenging this week to say the least. Two nights till nine pm and two nights till eleven pm. This is the most brutal time of the year for me as I will not have a day off from January 25th to February 20th. Fun times! So if I randomly disappear for a few days you will all know why and you can find me at my desk, or curled under it on the floor slowly rocking back and forth as I lose my mind.
United States of Books – This week’s book took us to Missouri with The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain. There are now nine of us taking on this reading challenge, so much thanks to all who volunteered.
Up Next for Author Tuesday – February 2, 2016 – Daphne Lamb author of The Girls Guide to the Apocalypse.
Then on February 16, 2016 – Sonali Dev author of The Bollywood Bride.
