Weekly Wrap Up – July 30

weekly wrap up

This week was a pretty great reading week! I managed to finish a total of three books, all of which I really enjoyed! I have been trying to make more time for reading, and really getting to the books I want to read, so I am really happy with what I was able to accomplish this week.

The first book I read this week is one I picked up on a whim: The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee. This book is amazing! I was immediately sucked in, and I could not put it down. This is exactly what I want when I pick up YA, and it is every bit worth all the hype it’s been getting. I loved it so much I even decided to give away a copy – CLICK HERE TO ENTER. It was just a such a fun read, and I loved every second of it.

I have kind of been obsessed with historical YA lately, so the next book I picked up is A Madness So Discreet by Mindy McGinnis. I’ve actually owned this for a while, and finally picked it up because I really enjoyed McGinnis’s The Female of the Species earlier this month, and was intrigued by the premise of this one. It’s gotten some mixed reviews, but I really enjoyed it! It was exactly what I was in the mood for after TGGtVaV. It was a bit predictable (and there was a scene early on that almost made me put the book down), but overall, I thought it was a pretty good book. And I am definitely interested in a sequel.

Then, I finally finished Out of the Fire by Nathanael Green and Evan Ronan. It took me forever to read this, not because the book was not interesting, but because I simply couldn’t get into it. It’s not what I normally gravitate towards, but I am a huge fan of Nathanael Green and Evan Ronan’s writing, and wanted to read it because I was interested in seeing how they approached a very different story. Once I got into this book, though I did really enjoy it! It was such an interesting book, and it was fun to see Green and Ronan approach sci-fi.

Currently, I am reading Woman Enters Left by Jessica Brockmole, which is turning out to be a lot better than I expected. The first few lines seemed a little cheesy, but this book has a lot of depth, and it is so interesting. I’ve been binge-reading it during lunch at work all week, and I am definitely planning on finishing it today, because I don’t think I’ll be able to handle it if I can’t finish the rest in one sitting. Keep your eyes peeled for a review next week.

I also started reading The Vegetarian by Han Kang, and this book is… weird. Really weird. But I’m intrigued.

I think that’s it for this week! I hope you’re all having a good weekend! Let me know what you’re reading in the comments, and don’t forget to enter my giveaway for The Gentleman’s Guide for Vice and Virtue!

  1. I’ve been meaning to pick up The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue, and some Mindy McGinnis books for so long now! I’m glad you enjoyed them! I read The Vegetarian last year, and yes it’s weird, but I absolutely loved the book. It’s compelling and creepy and excellently written. I hope you love it 🙂

    1. Thanks! I wasn’t sure I was going to read it at all, but I kept seeing it everywhere, and I liked the audiobook narration, so I decided to give it a shot. It was really great, and I definitely think more people should get a chance to read it 🙂


      1. I’m just really happy that it’s getting so many positive reviews! LGBT+ YA fiction tends to be a bit disappointing in my experience
