The Relentless Weekly Wrap-Up 01/25/2015

I’m giving away a stack of ARCs. Go enter!

In exciting style news I’m going to get a new haircut this week. Are you breathless with anticipation? I am! I’m going to have my guy cut off a bunch of hair and give me a messy bob. That’s the plan at this point. I’m sure you’ll stay tuned for any changes.

There weren’t many adventures in the kitchen this week. I didn’t make anything terribly exciting or new. I did  make a big dish of my granny’s pizza hot dish. Mmm, it’s like the Midwest in a bowl.

I recently finished All the Light We Cannot See. Good gravy, what a gorgeous book. I also read My Sunshine Away, a brilliant tale about crime and childhood. I found time to sneak in two adorable graphic novels by Raina Telgemeier: Smile and Drama. Right now I’m in the middle of My Grandfather Would Have Shot Me by Jennifer Teege. (It’s INTENSE.) January is shaping up to be a stellar month of reading.

My pal Andi (Estella’s Revenge) was in the Wall Street Journal! How cool is that?

Do you dig nonfiction? Doing Dewey has a Nonfiction Friday feature that you should totally be reading.

Anita published a piece on ARC overload. Check it out!

This week was weird. I’m very ready to move onto the next.

What’s happening in your neck of the woods?

  1. I just finished My Sunshine Away last night…my favorite book of the year so far! One question – we do not learn the narrator's name, correct? Wanted to make sure I didn't just miss it somewhere! This was my first book with a nameless narrator…


  2. And we will stay tuned on any changes to your hair…as always ;).In my neck of the woods, not a lot. Just cold again, but I don't have to tell you about cold, I don't think. So probably warm here compared to where you are. Today? Reading Sunday Salon and other posts. Listening to chill music while doing that. Watching more Friends later…what are you going to watch now that TNG is over (almost over?) for you?


  3. Thanks for the shout out!! You are having a good January, I was rolling along until this week, and while I'm enjoying My Father's Wives by Mike Greenberg I was just so distracted all week. Hoping to change that soon.Can't wait to see your hair!!


  4. I finished one of the two books I've been reading, so I'm planning to dig into All the Light We Cannot See this week. Loving it so far. Gorgeously written. And I'm super excited about your hair! Share a pic when it's done. 🙂


  5. My library copy of All the Light We Cannot See disappeared when I turned off my kindle's airplane mode by mistake… back on the list I go! Can't wait to see your new bob 🙂


  6. Can't wait to see the new haircut! And I'm glad you've been reading books you can be excited about. Both All the Light We Cannot See and My Grandfather Would Have Shot Me sound really good. Have a great week – better than this one, I hope!


  7. I love messy bobs! Also love All the Light We Cannot See.\” Just saw The Imitation Game. What's with all the great WW!! novels and movies of the past few years? Every time I turn around there is another one.


  8. We'll be waiting for the transformation! Thanks for the links around the blogsphere. I always enjoy those. And if I've read one of the articles you link to, there's always a few I haven't seen. Totally cool.


  9. I just got a bob the last haircut I had but I've been looking at some other bob cuts that are definitely what I would call messy which I'm hankering to try. Do post pics!
