Weekly Wrap-Up 11.4.12

I had a busy reading week this week: thanks to insomnia, I got through quite a few books.

Books I Read This Week:

The Raven Boys (Raven Cycle #1) by Maggie Stiefvater.  I tried for two weeks to get into this book and just couldn't.  I stopped reading about 50 pages in.  The story was moving too slowly and the book was a little too heavy on the ghosts and spirits for my taste.

Daughter of Jerusalem: a novel by Joan Wolf.  This was an outstanding historical Christian fiction!  The story was about Mary Magdalene's life from childhood on.  My favorite part was her journey in faith and seeing her interactions with Jesus.  Joan Wolf is quickly becoming a new favorite Christian author for me! 

Point of Retreat (Slammed #2) by Colleen Hoover.  I broke all of my reading rules and read this book without reading book one.  *gasps in horror*  Luckily, Hoover provided enough details at the beginning of book two to catch me up on the story (although I know I would have enjoyed the story even more had I read book one first).  I liked this book and thought it was a really sweet love story!

Unmasking Maya by Libby Mercer.  This was a fun, light-hearted read about a woman who moves from a successful career in fashion to a career in fine art.  What was so unique was the type of art Maya creates: wall hangings made with different fabrics (which incorporated her success in fashion into her new career).  And there was a really sweet love story, too.  Great read!

  3. I felt the SAME way about Raven Boys. I quit around the same time you did. Too bad! I usually love Maggie.
