Nomi’s Weekly Wrap Up #102


Nomi’s Weekly Wrap Up is a combined meme with the Sunday Post hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer, Bought, Borrowed and Bagged hosted by Braine @ Talk Supe and Stacking The Shelves hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. I’ll share news, post a recap of the past week and tell you what will be happening on my blog in the week ahead. I will also tell you about the books and goodies that I have managed to pick up.
This week I was able to catch up on a lot of review posts. I was a bit behind but now I am feeling a bit better. I caught up on cross posting too… So really it was a very productive week!

I began the final module in my Proofreading and Editing course. The first section is dealing with authors and how to interact with them when editing their work and I was a little proud of myself because I do things like that already.

Netball is going well too. We have made finals and are in the home stretch! I want to win this year after the poor finals experience we had last year!!

  2. Nice haul, Naomi! It looks like quite a few people got Rock Addiction this week. Sadly, I was not one of them.
    You should be proud of yourself. You do interact well with authors. I should know since I am one of them.
    Hope you had a good weekend and enjoy the week ahead. :)

  3. I saw the price for Dominic dropping, and I bit into my desk coz I'm on a book buying ban. It's so not fair!!! T.T
    I debated about requesting Rock Addiction, too, but I didn't want to start yet another series. And I saw Mr X, too, before the ban, but it didn't scream MOMMY. ^^
    Love your swag... again, no fair. ^^ Hope you'll have a great next week. xo

  4. Oh, you have Rock addiction by Nalini Singh, can't wait to see what you think of it ! I do love her Psy-changeling series but read not so good reviews for that one. I got Bend too :) Great book haul, have a great week and enjoy !

  5. It's always a great feeling when you get those reviews done. Congratulations on that and on doing well in your proofreading and editing course. I'm also curious on what you'll think about Rock Addiction. I've read it and really liked it but I did see lots of not-so good reviews about it. Happy reading and have a great week ahead!

  31. I'm glad you had such a productive week, Naomi. I'm hoping to have one this week. (with school back in session, my week was crazy!) Good luck in this portion of your coursework and in net ball!! I hope you go all the way! ;) You picked up some sexy looking books this week. I might have to make sure I have then too. And isn't sleeping near Ford fabulous?!? ;)

  33. Holy smokes you had such a productive week. I am jealous to the max. I am hoping this week is more productive but who knows. Another J.A. Huss book? I will never catch up. Netball sounds really cool (just looked it up) how long have you been playing? I have an ARC copy of The Jewel but I am DYING for Screwdriver. Need it soon! So glad you have such an awesome week!!

  34. Oh, sleeping near Ford rocks my world *wink*
    First week of finals went well, we play the top side this week... fingers crossed.

  36. I have played Netball since I was 15, but my daughter will play next year, so she will be 10. The younger the better i think! The ball coordination and team thing is great for kids!
    The Huss book was a prize and I love it!

  37. Great haul. I hope you enjoy them all.
