Sunday Wrap-up: June 5, 2016





Welcome to the first weekend of June! I don't have a whole lot to share with you in terms of offline ramblings other than this one picture:



SO yummy! Moving on..

 My Reading Progress

Despite being somewhat busy this week, I made great progress with my reading. 

Books Completed
My partner and I continued on to the second Percy Jackson book in audio format. We both enjoyed it, although I wasn't as wrapped up in the story as I was when listening to the first book. I gave it a 3-3.5 rating.

I plowed through this chunker of a book. I just couldn't put it down. I gave it a 4/5 rating and I'm looking forward to reading the second book in the Robert Langdon series.

  3. I love Rick Riordan! Made it halfway through book 4 before I got distracted with something else and haven't gone back to it because it's been too long and I would have to re-read. But it's definitely at the top of my list of things to do. His books are great :)
