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

I can’t believe we’re down to the last few weeks of school for my son.  This has been a crazy year for us, but my son did outstanding in Kindergarten and I’m so proud of him!!  I hope next year will be an even better year for him.  ♥

For whatever reason (stress, Netflix binges, etc.) I haven’t gotten too much reading done.  I’m a bit bummed by this, as my TBR pile is toppling over from its height.  But life happens, so I’m just rolling with it.  I hope to read more this week!

How was everyone’s week?  Anything super fun or exciting happen?

Subscription Boxes

Last month’s Stars Hollow Monthly arrived and I love it!!  The theme of the box was “In Omnia Paratus”, and it was just so perfect!  This month’s box is all based about having the perfect dinner party, so I can’t wait to see what’s included!

Reminder: You can use code “LOSTINLIT10” if you’d like to purchase a SHM box.  This code will save you 10%!

I also received this month’s Polyethnic Fandom Box, which was awesome as well.  It is weird how much I LOVE that they always include chocolate in their boxes?!  LOL

    I LOVE your photos! Kinda jealous how pretty they are. I book blogged a couple years ago, and then stopped, and just came back. Instagram wasn’t as big then, at least in the book blogging world, so it’s been really crazy to come back and see everyone using it! I need to start using it more.

    Hope you have a great week!

  • I’ve been feeling the same way about reading recently – my brain just hasn’t been in the right place, and it’s just so much easier to veg out in front of the TV and binge watch Netflix series…!!!
