Sunday Weekly Wrap Up (27) & Stacking the Shelves (12)

Sunday weekly wrap up

Wow. I think that gif sums up my entire life. But, uh, anyway, here’s Sunday’s post! As it’s the 31st here — the last day of August — this is also going to wrap up everything that’s happened this month, too. Seriously, though, where has August gone?? I swear when I woke up yesterday it was only the 1st. Bring on a summery September, I say! (It’ll be spring here, in Australia, in case you’re confused.)


This is the meme where you can highlight books you’ve bought/borrowed/gifted/received for review. You can read more on the meme and how to get involved here!

I got some pretty awesome books in the mail this week, which was super super exciting. Usually — as you might have noticed — I post my Stacking the Shelves on Fridays, but considering I don’t have too many books to share with you all this week, today is an exception.


Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch:

I CAN NOT TELL YOU HOW EXCITED I AM TO READ THIS BOOK. Oh my gosh, just look at that cover! If that’s not enough to make you want to read it . . . I don’t know what is! I was thrilled when I won this on a Twitter Re-tweeting competition. IT’S JUST SO PRETTY.



Eren by Simon P. Clark:

Another gorgeous cover. I read and reviewed this novel on Netgalley earlier this year, and the publisher kindly sent me out a copy, in all its hardback gloriousness. THE PICTURES INSIDE LOOK EVEN BETTER PRINTED THAN ON A SCREEN. Seriously, I loved this book. So original and dark. Keep an eye out on my blog during September — I’m part of the upcoming Eren blog tour. (Also? There will be a giveaway. Open internationally, as it will be shipped from the publisher. GET EXCITED, PEOPLE.)

To finish off this post, let’s look at what’s happened this week . . .

Monday — Book Review: We Were Liars by E. Lockhart [3/5 stars]

Tuesday — Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I Really Want To Read But Don’t Own Yet

Wednesday — Writerly Post Wednesday: Character Names — They’re Important!

Thursday — Book Review: Trial by Fire by Josephine Angelini [3.5/5 stars]

  1. HAHA I love that gif :D Also, yes, both those books have awesome covers (I like Eren even more than the other one, though!!). I do like dark books. It’s often a good change from all those lovely fluffy contemporaries that I read :D I hope it starts warming up soon, because I’m typing this comment wrapped up in a bazillion blankets. Happy September, Kara :)

  2. I’m so excited that it’s Spring finally, it’s my favourite season of all of them! Snow Like Ashes is one that I have an eARC for, congrats on winning the Twitter comp! It looks absolutely gorgeous. I hope you enjoy, Kara!

  3. Both covers are gorgeous! What’s with you and winning books lately? It seems like you’re winning so many books. You must be one lucky book blogger. Hmmm…what amazing books have I acquired this week? Code Name Verity, Steve Jobs: The Man Who Thought Different, Every Soul a Star and The Time of the Fireflies.
