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.
The weather has been in the 100 degrees here so we have been trying to stay cool. My daughter and I are still playing Pokemon Go but because of the heat we’ve been walking after 7 pm. Some nights have been cooler so it was nice being outside. But there were some nights when it was just too hot to walk long. Our dog Koko didn’t feel like hunting for Pokemon with us. She would rather play in the grass or just stop in the middle of the street. So we stopped taking her with us for now until the weather cools down.
My husband and I are finally watching Netflix. We watched the first season for Daredevil and really liked it. His friend suggested we watch Jessica Jones before watching Daredevil’s season 2. So far Jessica Jones has been slow and we are tempted to not continue. But we’ll see how the next episodes go.
Did anyone watch the Outlander season finale? I really liked it and I can’t wait for the next season. But I’m not sure if they selected the right actress for Brianna. The actress Sophie Skelton is receiving mixed reviews from the fans but I need to wait till next season to finally decide if I like her. For now she is ok but she’s not how I envisioned from the books. I know they can never cast exactly how a character is described in a book but Sophie has brown eyes while her parents Jamie (Sam Heughan) and Claire (Caitriona Balfe) have blue eyes. Can’t they at least make it believable that she can be the child of these actors? Also her hair is not red enough. I know these are crazy little details but it’s got to be done right lol. Overall I thought it was a great transition into the next book.

Around the blogosphere
Parajunkee posted Bookstagram Basics – Integrating Instagram With Your Blog. Her post has a lot of good tips for taking photos and using Instagram as an extension of your blog. I love how some bloggers take pictures of their books. I’ve been trying to use my Instagram blog account more but I always run into the problem of bad lighting or how to display the books. Here are my recent photos. My friend surprised me with a mini lemon pie so it went perfect with Luck, Love & Lemon Pie by Amy E. Reichert (and it was delicious!).
How was your week?
