Weekly Roundup

I always enjoy reading other bloggers’ weekly updates, so I thought I would start sharing mine as well! I will talk about the books that I read during the week and the BookTube videos that I posted, and I will also share some of my favourite blog posts that I came across throughout the week!

Books Read

Book Cover

I am so thankful to Libro fm for sending me an ALC of Lost in the Never Woods by Aiden Thomas. You probably know how much I adore their debut, Cemetery Boys, so I was really excited about this one. Unfortunately, it was just an okay read for me. I think because it is a Peter Pan retelling I went into it expecting it to be more whimsical. This is not set in Neverland and it reads more like a mystery/thriller, which was definitely interesting! I appreciated what Aiden Thomas did with these iconic characters and there were some interesting twists and turns. I will continue to read whatever Aiden Thomas writes!

The Gilded Ones found its way onto my favourite YA fantasy shelf! While the book isn’t perfect and left me with a lot of questions, I loved the conversations in here and the focus on female empowerment. I am so curious to see where the sequel goes because I have a feeling a lot more will be revealed!

Dee @ deereadsthings shared a plant haul, which just brought me so much joy! I think a lot of us surrounded ourselves with plants over this last year!

Semester Break (5)

Caro @ bookcheshirecat talked about all of the things that she plans to do during her semester break, which includes reading a lot of great books, participating in readathons, and catching up on a lot of media, from TV shows to podcasts. It was fun to read about all of her plans!

  1. I listened to Lost in the Never Woods too and I agree, I went in with too high expectations and thought it would include Neverland, so I was left disappointed. I agree though I will continue to read what Aiden writes in the future, as I also loved Cemetery Boys!

  2. Lost in the Never Woods went right to my tbr when I saw it on GR. The cover! Bummer that you didn’t love it though. I might still try it.

    Happy reading!

  3. I totally forgot the premise for Lost in the Never Woods but I started reading the first few pages of the ARC and immediately got those mystery/thriller vibes. Very curious to see where it goes! Sorry to hear it didn’t live up to your expectations though!

  4. Enjoy your reading! I hope to read The Gilded Ones sometime soon!
    I’m about to start Baptism of Fire and listening to Take a Hint Dani Brown!


  5. Thank you so much for featuring my post!! 🥰 I’m happy to see that you loved The Gilded Ones, as I have an overdue arc that I would love to read, as I’ve heard such good things about this book 🙂
