Weekly Wrap-Up (Dec 29 – Jan 4)

Weekly Wrap-Up

My first weekly wrap-up for 2019! I started off the year with a bang, meaning a trip to the library and an organized Kindle. Do I know how to party or what? And, yeah, I know one of my reading goals for the year is to read more books I own, but I couldn’t resist picking up some books when I went to the library this week.

  1. The Wolves of Calla is one of the best books in the Dark Tower series. Also, Dracul takes time, it’s long and slow. However, it’s a good story.

    1. The Dark Tower series is one of the series I most want to finish this year. It’s good, but takes some time to get through. I’ve been on the fence about Dracul. Since the library had it, figured I’d go ahead and give it a shot. Hoping to read it next week. 😊

  2. Ah, i love Wolves of Calla. And cover is super pretty <3
    I tried to listen to a Stephen King book, but there was so much going on that i couldn't focus.

  3. You have some great ones on there that I have too. I am reading Looker right now. I will have have to check out your review!
