Weekly Round-Up is my wrap-up of last week's activities and includes what I'm reading this week and anything of interest plus From the Library, my weekly listing of what I've checked out from the library.This week I'm getting a whole lot of ARCS from Traveling ARC Tours this week, starting with A Golden Web (Quick). I'm going to try to finish up The Knife of Never Letting Go (Ness) too and The Mystery of the Tolling Bell (Keene).
Last week I read Everlasting (Frazier). I didn't post any reviews at all. Anyway, I started two audio books before I decided what I really wanted to do was listen to the Harry Potter audios again (for the third time) so that is what I am doing. I'm on Sorcerer's Stone right now (obviously).
Books in the mail:
A Golden Web (ARC)- Barbara Quick
In defiant pursuit of her dreams, Alessandra undertakes an audacious quest, her bravery equaled only by the dangers she faces. Disguised and alone in a city of spies and scholars, Alessandra will find a love she could not foresee—and an enduring fame.
From the Library is my weekly listing of what I checked out from the library recently.
