The Weekly Wrap is a new weekly post created by Destiny which combines the WWW Wednesday meme and The Sunday Post to bring readers the best of both worlds within one tidy post. Here you can catch up with my weekly news including what I’m reading, playing and blogging about as well as general life updates.
I don’t often post book hauls, in fact my last one was in November 2018, but I got some really lovely books for my birthday on the 15th April and during Easter Con last weekend that I really wanted to share with you all. I’ve been really lucky and thankful to receive so many wonderful gifts as well as have the financial means to afford to buy more books this year, so I hope you all don’t mind me sharing these with you all!
State of the ARC is a monthly meme at Avalinah’s Books meant to motivate you to finish up all your long overdue ARCs (Advanced or Early Reader Copies).
