Lisa’s Weekly Recap ~ 4.8.17

April 8, 2017 // Posted by Lisa in Weekly Recaps // 10 Comments

Weekly Recap is a weekly feature here at Lost in Literature where we discuss all things bookish from the past week!

I’ve linked to Stacking the Shelves, hosted by Tynga at Team Tynga’s Reviews & The Sunday Post, hosted by Kim at Caffeinated Book Reviewer.


Life Happenings

Today starts my son’s Spring Break from school, so I’m expecting a rather busy week ahead of me.  I definitely won’t have much time to read or take pics for bookstagram, but I’ll definitely have a lot of quality time with my son.  ♥

The weather here is finally getting more Spring-like! I love it!! This week it’s even supposed to reach almost 80 degrees!! After the 30’s this week, that is going to feel REALLY warm! It also rained almost every day last week, so the expected sun for this week is so exciting!! I’m hoping to soak up some vitamin D outside with a book at some point this week.

Currently Reading

Alex, Approximately The Star-Touched Queen (The Star-Touched Queen, #1) The Whole Thing Together

Reading: Alex, Approximately ~ Oh my wow, this book is just SO ADORABLE!!!

Reading: The Star-Touched Queen ~ Yeah, I’m pretty late to the game with this one.  And honestly, the only reason I’m reading it right now is because my friend wanted me to buddy-read it with her.  So, I started… and so far I’m really liking it!

Listening: The Whole Thing Together ~ I actually just finished my last audiobook, so this is next up on my list, but I haven’t actually started it yet.  I’m very excited for it though.  I really like Ann Brashares’ writing style.
