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.
Northern California has been hit with multiple fires. I live in Sacramento and far from the fires but we could smell the smoke and the sky was gray. The fires have left thousands of people homeless and to date 36 people killed but there are still a lot of people missing. One of the fires was in the Sonoma and Napa area where over 2,000 homes were destroyed and some wineries. This is the first time a fire hit close to our family and friends. On Facebook we heard news they were safe and if they had to evacuate. Some of the fires have been contained and now stories of survival are being told. One couple was trapped by the fire and survived for 6 hours in a neighbor’s pool. Here is their incredible story. Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected from the fires.
Here is a map of all the fires around us. The winds have died down so thankfully some of the fires are being contained and our air quality has improved.
How was your week?

Last week’s Outlander episode was one of the best so far this season. Fans finally got a glimpse of the reunion but must wait another week for the next episode. The next episode is going to be extended (74 minutes) and I can’t wait.
The new Stranger Things season 2 trailer was released on Friday and OMG I can’t wait for this season!
What are you watching?
I hope you have a great week!
