Weekly Wrap-Up

This wrap-up is for the week of August 8th-August 14th. I read a total of 7 books which brings my yearly total 207 books. These books totaled 2,290 pages.

The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes By: Suzanne Collins

I gave this book 4 stars. This is the prequel to the Hunger Games Series. This book is about President Snow when he was younger and how he became the way he was in the Hunger Games.

Cloche and Dagger: The Hat Shop Mystery By: Jenn McKinlay

I gave this cozy mystery 3 stars. This is the first book in the Hat Shop Mystery Series and is based in London. Scarlett starts over her life in London as she left Florida when her married boyfriend decides not to divorce his wife and had never really planned to. Scarlett helps her cousin, Viv run a millinery business which was left to both of them by their grandmother. This is her new start over story.

Eliza By: Keith and Ann Terry

I gave this book about Eliza R. Snow 4 stars. It goes over her struggles as a new member of the Mormon Church. Then ends up how everyone loves and respect her.

It Happened One Summer By: Tessa Bailey

I gave this book 3 stars. I so wanted to give it more, but I just didn’t like the female main character. This is about Piper and how she needs to learn how to do things for herself instead of having her stepdad come in and fix it. She is sent back to run her father’s dive bar in the town where she was born. Her father is dead, but there are friends of his there. She meets a fisherman and they become attracted to each other which neither of them wanted. This is their story.

4:50 From Paddington By: Agatha Christie

I gave this book 4 stars. This is about a woman who witnesses a murder. How does she tell her story because she is the only witness and there is no body.

365 Days of Wonder By: R.J. Palacio

I gave this book 4 stars. This is about a fictional teacher who collects Precepts and uses them as he teaches his classes. He has given one precept for each day of the year. After every month he has an essay, or an email written by him or to him which gives a lesson of some sort. It is a very quick read and some of the precepts are funny.

The Okay Witch and the Hungry Shadow By: Emma Steinkellner

I gave this graphic novel 4 stars. In this graphic novel Moth just wants to be liked and to have bullying stopped. After an unexpected incident she is able to deal with her peers and learns to like herself as she is and to stick up for herself.

Those are the books that I read for the week. Have you read any of them? If so, what did you think about them? Let’s chat in the comments and until next time, keep reading.
