For those of you who missed my post outlining the new blog schedule, the weekly wrap up is a chance for me to say a few sentences about the few books that I’ve read in the week but don’t have time to review. If there are any that you’d like me to expand on, just leave a comment and I’ll write up a full review.

The first book I read this week was Cinder by Marissa Meyer. You can find my full review of that here.

Then I picked up Don’t Expect Magic by Kathy McCullough. Thoughts: Definitely a fun one, mixing together fairy tale and high school drama in a fast and easy read. Recommended for fans of Alex Flinn, fluffy romances and fairy tales.

After that, I decided it was time for something different, so I started Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs. Thoughts: I loved the way he incorporated the real photos into the narrative. I found it much less creepy than I expected, but that’s a good thing as I’m not much one for horror stories anyways. Recommended for fans of The Emerald Atlas, Lemony Snicket, and the His Dark Materials series.

Since then I’ve picked up Magic Study by Maria V. Snyder, and while I’m already loving it, I’ll reserve judgement till I’ve actually finished. Also, for those of you who don’t know, I’m taking a class in literary analysis of the Harry Potter series, so I have been working my way through the series for that. I’m currently about halfway through book four, and while I won’t be reviewing it this time around, you can find my thoughts from the last time through it here.
