Weekend Wrap-Up // March 8, 2019

Hey everyone!

We’ve finally reached another weekend. I’m most excited about this one because I’ll be heading off to San Diego for a little weekend away. I want to check out a new city, skateboard on their boardwalk, spend some time baking in the sun, watch my husband surf, and visit bookstores

The big bookstore I’m most excited about is Warwick’s. It’s the one bookstore so many of you suggest whenever I think about going to San Diego. I’m going there and I might buy myself a tote bag or a t-shirt to commemorate my time there.

I do hope you get to spend some time at a bookstore either on vacation or in your hometown. I’m realizing more how important it is to support local business, but also independent bookstores. So many times I’ve been burned by Amazon and buying anything from them. I want to dedicate myself to putting my money towards causes that actually care about books.

Links I Loved

Blog Posts from the Week

I’m starting to finally feel like my reading is picking up again and my writing will follow. This week, I’ve posted about my wrap up, my book haul, and pencils. LOL, what a fun little week it’s been. I’ll include links below in case you’ve missed them (of course):

What I’m Reading This Weekend

Since I’ll be in San Diego, I want to bring something with me that’s fun and interesting. I think I’ll also be bringing my Kindle because the drive to San Diego will be short and from our plans, it sounds like we’ll be too busy to actually chill and read. I think the Kindle will be good to pack for any lulls within our plans. I’ll be bringing along:

I’m most excited about Bad Blood because it’s about a billionaire tech mogul who lied about her ability to test blood at home and got super caught. Isn’t it funny how one lie can build and become numerous lies and then you find yourself trapped in a web of frustration, lawsuits, and bankruptcy? Yeah, me neither.

The Nickel Boys by Colson Whitehead is my highly anticipated read of 2019. It hasn’t published yet, but after I finished reading The Underground Railroad, I wanted to read more from him. This one isn’t about slavery, but civil rights. I know this will move me, but it will also be creative in the way Colson Whitehead always is.

The others are early ARCs and I might not get to them, but I love having these options available for me. This goes double when I’m carrying my Kindle.

What are you reading this weekend?

Have a great weekend!

  2. Love the Weekend Wrap-Up post. This weekend I’m hoping to finish Dread Nation by Justine Ireland. I’m also listening to The Lady from the Black Lagoon by Mallory O’Meara. Both are really good.
