Nomi’s Weekly Wrap Up #81

Nomi’s Weekly Wrap Up is a combined meme with the Sunday Post hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer 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.
I have had a relatively quiet week this week. We had parent/teacher interviews that went well. They also had a day off from school, so we had a quiet day at home. Other than that, nothing exciting happened. I did the usual stuff: blogging, reading and visiting blogs. Same old, same old. How was your week?

  8. Caught up in Us looks good, hope you enjoy!

  9. Wallbanger is so good! I listened to it in audiobook format during my commute and frequently laughed until I had tears streaming down my face. I'm sure the other drivers thought I was nuts. :)

    Check out my Sunday Post and my current giveaways!

  10. Oh my, I love JA Huss - the whole Rook and Ronin plus the spin-off series is just awesome!
    I want to read Wallbanger, too - but I need to stop adding too many books to my shelves -there's no way I'll ever find the time to read them all.

  11. I've heard some amazing things about Wallbanger. Actually, I don't think I've ever seen a negative review for it.
    Oohh, J.A. Huss!! I love her books! Although I've only read the first one in her Rook and Ronin series. I've been meaning to catch up with that series.

    Oooh, I see you are reading Guns, so am I!!! Loving it so far. Enjoy the new books.

  13. I think Wallbanger will be on my list now as well. And that after a week of not getting anything for myself!

    Blogging, reading, visiting blogs - sounds like the perfect way to spend the day for me :)

    Have a great week and Happy Reading.
