Wrap Up (The One Where I Finally Finished Some Books)

I'm actually spending the weekend at home, this week, so I'm writing this post from the comfort of my room, surrounded by all my books. Aw how I've missed them! But in even better news- I finished some books this week! Three books, to be precise. How did I do it? I finally made time to read. And I was pretty close to finishing them all anyways, so it wasn't that hard in the end. It still feels great to say I've finished three books though.

I also posted on my bookstagram for the first time since getting a new one. I have to update a bunch of links here on my blog, and I plan to do that soon, but I may not get to it today. So it's been a good week!

Finished this Week
I finished Empire of Storms (and loved it!), The Blind Assassin (which was a book club book and I loved it!), and On Writing (which is nonfiction but had me tearing up quite a bit several times as I read it).

Currently Reading
Lies of Locke Lamora is my main read, but I'll also be starting The Ugly Teapot very soon. If I somehow manage to finish Lies of Locke Lamora (it's a big book so I'd be very surprised) I'm going to be picking up Rebel Genius.

I meant to post this Wednesday since the book came out Tuesday, but I didn’t get the book until Thursday. Oh well. It’s absolutely gorgeous and I can’t wait to dive into it! . Since this is my first post I want to introduce myself. My name is Sam and I’m a book blogger (link in bio). I’ve been book blogging for nearly two years now and I love the community. Earlier this year (or was it last year?) I had a bookstagram account that I’ve now deactivated. It didn’t really have to do with anything anyone did, but with the fact that I was really unhappy with my feed, was really bad at interacting with people and putting time into bookstagram, and had accidentally hooked it up to my personal Facebook account so people I went to school with and was related to were seeing the account and it was just kinda weird. So I deactivated and here I am. . I plan on posting regularly on this account, with my goal being three times a week. I don’t expect to hit that goal until December, though, because I want to ease myself into this account and take only pictures I’m happy with. The schedule will be Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays around noon each day. I think Wednesday posts will mostly be for new releases, or if no new releases some other book I want to showcase, and Fridays will be whatever I’m currently reading or just finished. Mondays will be for books I just want to spotlight for one reason or another. . . . #bookstagram #booknerd #bookrelease #yabook #books #gemina #theilluminaefiles #scienefiction #prettybook #amiekaufman #jaykristoff #knopf

I hope everyone has a great week!


  1. I hope you're loving The Lies of Locke Lamora and will like The Ugly Teapot! Can't wait to see what you think about them! :)

    I'll probably look at your bookstagram - even though I don't have an account of my own. :)

    1. So far I'm enjoying them both quite a bit!
