The Weekly Wrap-Up (20): two more sleeps!


And I still have SO. MUCH. CRAP. to do. Oh dear.

In case you missed it...
Review: The Girl in the Wall by Daphne Benedis-Grab

Review: Tempestuous by Kim Askew and Amy Helmes

Mid-Winter's Eve Giveaway Hop: win a SIGNED ARC + POSTER of Burn For Burn by Jenny Han & Siobhan Vivian! US only, ends 12/27

Coming up...
Since next week is the holiday, it'll probably be a bit quiet - but sometime in the next two weeks: review of Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell, and perhaps one of Safekeeping by Karen Hesse. Two very different books! Also, I'm going to kick off my ONE YEAR BLOGOVERSARY extravaganza!! It's a lot of giveaways and reflection. I've loved every moment this blog has existed, and I can't wait to celebrate it with everyone.

Onto the books!

    I'm surprised at how thick Mila is! It's a beast! I hope it's great :) Easy looks really good - I've only heard positive things about it. It's been sitting on my Nook for a while now. Maybe I'll get to it soon.

    Have a good holiday :)

    Wallbanger... I think I want to read it just to see how apple pie can be sexy. :)
