Weekly Rewind ~ 4.19.15

Posted April 19, 2015 by Grace @ Rebel Mommy Book Blog in Features, Weekly Rewind / 28 Comments

Weekly Rewind is a weekly feature where I will recap posts, books read, books bought and borrowed and whatever else from the past week.

I’ve linked to The Sunday Post hosted by  Caffeinated Book Reviewer and Stacking the Shelves hosted by  Team Tynga’s Reviews.

Hope everyone had a wonderful week because mine was great! This is mostly due to wonderful weather here and being able to get outside with kids.

This week in blog posts

This week in reading
  • Finshed: The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt – Finished with an hour left on the library loan. BOOM.
  • Current Read: Requiem by Lauren Oliver – Almost done. So nice to have a quicker read after such a long one.
  • Next: The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins – Very excited about it
Purchased/Borrowed/Given for Review



My favorite pictures from my Instagram this week.


Quote of the Week

“Sometimes I feel like if you just watch things, just sit still and let the world exist in front of you – sometimes I swear that just for a second time freezes and the world pauses in its tilt. Just for a second. And if you somehow found a way to live in that second, then you would live forever.”

Lauren Oliver, Pandemonium

What did your week look like? What books did you read/get?

  1. I adore that cover of Keep The Ends Loose! LOVE arty covers like that. xD And I seriously need to read the Delirium series by Lauren Oliver. I’ve read 3 of her other books and loved them. She’s such an incredible writer!!
    Thanks for stopping by @ Paper Fury!

      The cover totally got me too! And yes please read the Delirium series. It is such a good read ( although I still have the end of Requiem so I hope it goes out strong!)

      I am hearing only good things for Girl on the Train so I am hoping my expectations are not to high. Have a great week too!

  2. I really enjoyed Delirium, but I was a little disappointed with Pandemonium and Requiem. Requiem was better than I was expecting, but still not as good as the first book for me. I hope you enjoy it. Definitely love Lauren Oliver’s writing style. She has so many quotable moments in this series. Unfortunately, I just DNF’d Vanishing Girls by her and posted my DNF review this week. Hope you have a great week!

      I actually liked Pandemonium quite a bit so I am hoping Requiem ends well. I just read your review for Vanishing Girls – UGH. I totally get getting frustrated with chapters with dates that jump back and forth. I always get thrown off. I really like her writing style and books so I will have to give it a try and see how it goes!

      It is so long! I really liked it but it totally could have been a little shorter – Hope you get to it !

    • Grace @ Rebel Mommy Book Blog

      Thanks! I do eel like The Girl on the Train has been everywhere lately – Hopefully it lives up to the hype!

    • Grace @ Rebel Mommy Book Blog

      I am so excited to start it! And I can’t wait to get t o Her Sister’s Shoes – it sounds really good – Have a great week!

    Thank you! I definitely put more time than I would like to admit into the instagram pics

  4. I think I’m rather in the minority in my love for Requiem, but I loved it. 🙂 i hope you do too! And your Instagram pictures are so pretty–I’m going to have to go follow you! 😀 I hope you have a great week!!
