Weekly Wrap Up August 18 – Took a Mini-Vacation & Booked a Real One!

Weekly Reading Wrap Up

This week went by way too fast. Probably because I took three days off work and did almost absolutely nothing. And it was awesome. I also booked a trip to Prague in February, and I am so excited (even though I’ve only had the tickets for like five days). Needless to say, it’s been a good week. And not just because I read two books.

The first book I finished this week was The Warlow Experiment by Alix Nathan. I won’t get into all of my thoughts here – because it will probably turn into a rant – but let’s just say I didn’t like this book. At all. If you do want to read what I thought about this book in more detail, check out my review of The Warlow Experiment.

And, after reading so many more serious books (I’ve been reading a lot of drama and history), I was in the mood for a romance. And I didn’t know which one I should read. And then I decided, why not pick up that ARC I already have? (Because duh.) So I read Would Like to Meet by Rachel Winters. And I loved it! It was so much fun, and just really spoke to my inner rom com nerd. I’ll have a review up closer to publication date (it’s December 3rd, in case you want to add this to your holiday TBR already). I already want more!

This week, I also made a lot of progress on The Priory of the Orange Tree. Basically, I’m forcing myself to listen to the audiobook (on 2x speed). And it is growing on me, but I also don’t love it. I have a little more than half of the book to go, and I’m kind of hoping something big happens soon. Because, so far, I’m not really invested in most of the characters (and there are a lot).

That’s pretty much it for this week. I’d like to cross a few more books off my TBR before the end of the month, but I’m definitely being a little overambitious with my goals. I mean, what’s new?

I hope you all had a great week! What are you reading this weekend?
