Hello, everyone! As I mentioned in my previous post, I’m going to be doing Weekly Wrap-Ups starting this week. I figured it would make much more sense than doing #WeekendReads.
Without further ado, let’s get down to it.
Reviews that I wrote
I wish I were as fast a reader as you are, but sadly, I am not. I only got to finish this book maybe around Thursday (My gosh, I already forgot…). But this book is definitely one of the best reads in 2017. I really want to read more from him.
Posts that I made
Regarding the number of posts, I can say it’s pretty satisfactory. I introduced some features including some weekly memes this week and it’s been going good so far. Especially, I’m pleasantly surprised by all the positive responses that I have got for my new segment, #Tidbits about Japan. It was totally on a whim (but I’d been contemplating whether to do it or not), so such positive responses have definitely motivated me to try even more 🙂

Awards & Tags
This week has been a pretty surprising one; I’ve been tagged for two Bookish tags (one of which I haven’t done yet) and I was nominated for 4 awards! (again, two of which I haven’t done yet).
It’s been really humbling just to think that they even thought about me when deciding on their nominees. I really appreciate their support!

Book that I bought
To tell the truth, I had totally forgotten about having bought this book when the package arrived. A couple days ago, my Twitter friend with whom I buddyread Fifty Shades of Grey finally finished listening to an Audiobook. Although I’d had absolutely NO intention of reading the sequels (let’s be real, it isn’t worthwhile), but she was like, ‘I’m expecting you to read the sequels and let me know your thoughts!’ and I got tempted… (Ughhh) Seriously, how could you resist when someone showed you their trust and faith in you???
This is how I ended up buying this book and it’s now deeply hidden in my bookshelf. I’ll probably won’t read this until next month, but… am I really going to read THIS?? I really have no idea…
What I’m currently reading…
Yes, I’m still working my way through this book and I’m close to 40% right now.
I’ve just got into Part 2 and it’s getting more and more interesting and gripping! What I found amazing about this book is the writing and how intricately and meticulously the story is crafted. The characters are all fleshed out and realistic, and the writing is so solid and extremely descriptive. As some characters’ evil side have been revealed, I’m literally hating them with a burning passion! So far, my favorite character is definitely Phillip, the prior of KingsBridge. He’s a devout monk and his wit, insights and magnanimity… Awww, I just adore him!
I cannot wait to see how his wish of rebuilding the cathedral turns out!
That’s it for today.
How about you? Has this week been satisfactory for you? What books did you finish reading?
Let me know in the comments and I’ll talk to you again soon!
The pics are my aunt’s 6 months-old Mame Shiba dog (small-sized breed of Shiba).
He is very energetic and just so cute! He kept climbing on my laps and licking and biting all over my face lol
Isn’t he precious??
