Weekly Round-Up is my wrap-up of last week's activities and includes what I'm reading this week, reviews I've posted, books in the mail and anything else of interest plus From the Library, my weekly listing of what I've checked out from the library.This week is Once Upon a Week and so all of my post are going to reflect that with reviews focusing on fairy tale stories.
This week I'm reading Virgin Territory (Lecesne) and finishing The Clue in the Velvet Mask (Keene) and starting Sapphique (Fisher). I'm listening to Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Rowling) and The Red Pyramid (Riordian).
Last week I read Gone (McMann) and Sisters Red (Pearce). I listened to Fairy Dust and the Quest for the Wand (Levine) and Fairies and the Quest for Neverland (Levine).
