Weekly Rewind ~ 8.7.16

Posted August 7, 2016 by Grace @ Rebel Mommy Book Blog in Features, Weekly Rewind / 43 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.
So I was back this week after a week off. Sometimes a little time off the blog does wonders. Anyways I got a lot of reading done which is always good. Otherwise just enjoying the summer. Today I am heading to Bookitcon Chapter 2 down in south Jersey. I am excited to go and see a bunch of authors I like and maybe meet some blogger friends???? Hope everyone had a great week!

Quote of the Week

 “Nostalgia is recall without the criticism of the present day, all the good parts, memory without the pain. Finally, nostalgia asks so little of us, just to be noticed and revisited;”
― Carrie Brownstein, Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl: A Memoir

  1. I’ve heard so many good things about The Serpent King. I really want to read it…eventually. I love that chip reader image. Why does everyone have the chip part, but you can’t use it!?

  2. AHHHHHHHH!!! That chip reader comic is sooooooo dead on correct!!!!! I don’t have a chip so I just swipe my little heart away everywhere I go but my hubs’ card has a chip. When I use his card anywhere (shhhhhh! We literally have the same first name so it’s okay!!) I NEVER know what to do. He JUST had his card cloned and they ran up a very high tab before we caught it HOURS later so I always want to use the chip but so many places are behind!!! GRRRRRRRR!!!!

    So, yeah!!! Congratulations on the books you won!!! Fantastic!!! And all those books you read in the last few weeks? You’re a machine!!! 🙂

    Have a great week… I hope it has cooled down over there for you!

    • Seriously with the chip readers right?!? Ugh that stinks about his card being cloned. We have had our fair share of issues with stuff like that. Thanks!!! I was kind of machine for a while there and now I am dragging. Have a great week!!

  3. Oh I am getting ready to start Her Darkest Nightmare soon! Can’t wait to see your thoughts.
    And yes, that Chip reader vs swiping is a giant pain in my ass!!! And no matter what, my bank always thinks it is fraud and declines the transaction. Its so frustrating!
    Enjoy your book haul!

  4. Have fun at Bookitcon! Sounds like fun. I’m hoping to get to Truly Madly guilty in the next week or two, although I’m keeping my expectations in check. And I love that graphic!

  5. I can relate to that cartoon about the Chip reader….definitely not my favorite thing these days, and the process…well, it’s a time suck. I have it on all my cards, but they didn’t really give us a choice, did they?

    Enjoy your books…I can’t wait to read Truly Madly Guilty and It Ends with Us…both on my Kindle. Thanks for visiting my blog.

  6. That chip reader cartoon is amazing! It is so true I have no idea what to do when I get to a store now. The checkout lines are now backing up, who came up with this idea! A week off from blogging is always good and if you got tons of reading done that is even better! It looks like you are doing good on your ARC challenge! Happy Reading this week!
