Weekly Wrap-Up: Lupe and Sophia Meet Again

weekly wrap up

Happy Sunday, bookwyrms!

Hopefully, your week has been treating you well. It’s been a really busy week for some of us here since some of us are on Spring Break, or it might have been relaxing, depending on who’s perspective you’re looking at.

Life continues here at Bookwyrming Thoughts and the wind has not yet calmed down yet (also depending on who’s perspective, this might be a good thing). This might catch up sooner or later.

Let’s get started with this week’s wrap-up, shall we?

Book Haul


  • The Opposite of Fate by Amy Tan (library) – I’m reading this for a project in my Women in Media class.

The Reading Life


I finished The Heart Forger, and no, I am not okay. NOT. OKAY. AT. ALL.

I started Fire and Bone by Rachel Marks and The Opposite of Fate by Amy Tan. So far, I’m putting a lot of attention on Amy Tan because I forgot there’s a paper due in about a week. Oops.

I’m enjoying her biography, though, and I’m relating to Amy Tan on a molecular level.



Lupe and I meet again… after high school. Sometimes she catches me at work but we never get to talk (and laugh at each other). In the span of maybe an hour (after eating and me helping her with the ways of WordPress), we somehow managed to knock out three blog posts. Three.

We did this while procrastinating. Please hold while we continue to be shocked. 😱

Lots of other things happened as well:

  • I’m now certified in Google Adwords Fundamentals. Eep.
  • I watched the Chinese live action of Mulan and OMG. SO GOOD. I watched this after reading The Heart Forger, and I don’t think my heart can take this much emotion.
  • I brought bookstagram things. Hello, dark theme I played with in class once, you are now mine forever. 😈

I survived my first informational interview as well, but uh… I apparently had a panic attack or was on the verge of one, so Elena had to step in a few times.

  • As you can probably tell, I don’t get out a lot.

That’s… lovely to know. *cringes* At times like this I wonder if I even chose the right major because I can’t even function properly in front of people and I’m a communication major. (Note: We’re… we’re not just about communicating with people.)

Anyways, how was your week? Less stressful?

Sophia has a GIF for nearly everything and is frequently in a Hogwarts House crisis. Unlike her personality in blog posts, she's a socially awkward recent college grad who majored in Communications. More of her bookish reviews can be found at The Arts STL.

  1. Hope you’re having a great spring break (if you’re, um, on spring break) 🙂 Sounds like you guys kicked some butt in the blogging department this week…

    Mulan sounds good. And glad The Heart Forger was good- that cover gets me every time, I love it.

    You guys have a great week ahead!

  2. Amy Tan, yes! I have quite a few of her stuff on the TBR (only marked, now owned.. yet 🙂 ) and I’ve read at least one book. I’m really interested in anything China, really, so I love reading books like that 🙂 hope you enjoy that one.

    OH! YOU’RE ADWORDS CERTIFIED. Now look who works at the same stuff as me, huh 😀 although, you’re still studying, if I remember right? Anyway 🙂 I teach Google Analytics and get people certified, and I’ve been working with Adwords for like.. a while now xD anyways, congrats 🙂

    Bookstagram in a dark theme sounds great :0

  3. Sounds like you had a busy week. Congrats on doing 3 posts whilst procrastinating tho! I feel like I’m missing something by not having read the Bone Witch. I’m undecided still whether to read it or not xD Hope you have a great week 🙂

  4. You accomplished a lot even while procrastinating. Mulan is one of my favorite Disney movies and would love to see the live action of it. Hope you have a great week!

  5. Google Adwords is the most confusing thing of all the confusing things! Please, please teach us your ways in a helpful, easy to follow blog post. I love that you guys meet up and spend time together, even fleeting. I hope you both enjoy the rest of your spring break and have a wonderful week of reading ladies <3

  6. Sorry about your (almost) panic attack Sophia! Hope you feel better now. I kind of had a stressful / eventful weekend because all we did was move things to our apartment, build furniture from IKEA and paint walls. xD Of course I wasn’t allowed to do much but still.
