My Weekly Wrap Up is my version of The Sunday Post hosted by Kim at Caffeinated Book Reviewer. This weekly meme is a chance to share news about your blog, books and life. It is also a perfect opportunity to meet bloggers and add more books to your collection.
Hi everyone! I hope you all had a good week. I had a disappointing week since I didn’t win the Powerball lol. If you are not familiar with this the Powerball is a lottery that is played in multiple states. Wednesday’s jackpot was $1.5 billion dollars!! My husband and I had office pools for the lottery and it’s sad we didn’t win big. My office did win $24 so we are buying more tickets for Saturday’s jackpot of $40 million. It would be nice to win some of this money!! I would quit my job and find a part-time job to work at home. Oh well maybe we’ll be lucky on Saturday. Did you play the Powerball?
I need help! Is anyone participating in a Valentine’s blog hop giveaways? I have some romance books I want to giveaway (so I can have room for new books) and I like participating in blog hop giveaways. I get more entries during the hops. I did find the Romance is in the Air hop hosted by Book Hounds but it is only for “clean” adult books. The books I want to giveaway don’t fit that requirement.
In the entertainment world we lost some incredible people this week. I was so sad to hear that David Bowie, Alan Rickman (Harry Potter) and Bob Denver (Gilligan’s Island) passed away this week. David Bowie and Gilligan’s Island were a huge part of my childhood. Alan Rickman was a talented actor who brought life to some memorable characters. They will all be missed. Here is one of my favorite songs from David Bowie Modern Love (1983) and it brings back memories of watching MTV and dancing to the music videos.
Currently reading or listening to:
I’ve been reading The Lie and The Lady by Kate Noble and I really like it so far. I haven’t read a historical romance in a long time so I’m really enjoying the time period and the story is a nice combination of romance and mystery. I started to listen to the audiobook Prudence by Gail Carriger but then stopped. This is a spinoff of the Parasol Protectorate series which I haven’t read yet. I felt lost even though the reviews for Prudence said it wasn’t necessary to read the other series. I’ll have to read this another time. I am listening to The Rose Society by Marie Lu and I think it is ok so far.
