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

Hello bookworms! I hope that you are all doing well! Can you believe how close Summer is? I cannot wait for days spent at the beach and by the pool! But until then I am just hoping for some warmer days around here! We are lucky if it hits 65!

Life has still been crazy with my kids sports and activities! I find that I am always on the go and don’t have nearly as much time to read as I would like! My daughter just finished her third dance competition! Her team took 5 first place awards, 1 second place award and 2 judges choice awards! I could not be any more proud of those girls! My son is doing both Karate and Soccer and loving both! He just achieved his orange belt and we were all so excited! No matter how exhausted I am, it is worth it to see their happy smiles! Even when my kindle hits me in the face as I’m trying to sneak in a few pages of reading at night and fall asleep!

Book Haul

For Review



I got quite a few awesome review books in the mail recently! You can click on the images above to see their Good Reads page 🙂



I pre-ordered ACOWAR and I am patiently waiting for my pre-order map to come in! I also purchased Stalking jack the Ripper which has been on my TBR forever when I received this awesome swag package in the mail!

Birthday Haul!!


Slammed (Slammed, #1)   Point of Retreat (Slammed, #2)  Too Late  P.S. I Like You

My Mother in law is the best ever! Each birthday she always asks me for my bookish wish list and makes my dreams come true! All of these were on my list this year and I was so happy as I unwrapped, sniffed and pet each one 😀 Despite snickers and jeers from the rest of my family (except Lisa) non-bookworms just don’t understand!


Currently Reading

A Court of Wings and Ruin (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #3)  The Crown's Fate (The Crown's Game, #2)

I am loving both of these books so much! I am almost done with both and they are each amazing!! I don’t know how I will recover once I am done with them!

The Week’s Posts

I am so close to 25K on Instagram and I am very excited to reach that milestone! Here is a look at a few of my most recent posts!!

That’s my week in books!

What did you get this week?!




  • The weather around here has been pretty chilly this week too. It’s so up and down lately, it’s been driving my sinus crazy! It’s supposed to be much warmer this upcoming week so I’m really looking forward to that. Looks like you have some great new books. I hope you enjoy them all and have a great mother’s day!

  • Jessica @ a GREAT read

    Ooh nice! I am still trying to plan when I want to read ACOWAR! Avoiding reviews of it in the meantime! Hope you enjoy the new reads!

    My STS will be up tomorrow, so stop by then if you can!

    Have a GREAT day!

  • I LOVED Stalking Jack the Ripper and the sequel, Hunting Dracula, is coming out this year. That’s an awesome swag pack, I’m so jealous!

  • I wish it would warm up!!!I am tired of the chilly weather. Wow you are definitely busy with all your kids stuff. I am sure it is hard to fit in reading. Lots of great books – especially your birthday haul. Enjoy and have a great week!
