Week in Review: June 23

missprintweekreviewThis week on the blog you can check out:

This week was simultaneously very long and also a whirlwind. Do you ever have that happen?

I started the week feeling really behind on everything but I think I’m back on track now which makes me happy. I am reselling stuff, getting books out of the house, catching up on reviews, and gearing up for some summer-specific things at work. How do you get back on track when you feel like you’ve lost moment on, well, everything?

This week I read quite a bit including Wildcard and, you guys, I am so sad I didn’t enjoy it more. Maybe I was able to buy into the hype better with Warcross but I am just not feeling this one.

Here are two of my favorite posts I shared on Instagram this week:

Do you read seasonally? ▪️ I definitely gravitate toward contemporary and/or contemporary romance in the summer. When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon is a recent favorite so if you have any recommendations in a similar vein let me know. ▪️ Dimple Shah wants to go to Stanford, focus on coding, and start her career. She isn't interested in clothes, contacts, or makeup. She definitely doesn't want a relationship or an "Ideal Indian Husband"–not right now and possibly not ever. When her parents agree to pay for Dimple to attend Insomnia Con, it feels like maybe they're both finally understanding who Dimple is and embracing her dreams and ambitions. ▪️ Then again, maybe not. ▪️ Rishi Patel knows that it's up to him to follow tradition and respect his parents' wishes. It's possible that Rishi isn't passionate about engineering or MIT but he knows he should stick to the responsible and safe choice. ▪️ Rishi is a romantic but he also wants a solid partnership in the future. He trusts his parents when they try to set up an arranged marriage with the daughter of family friends. It should be simple. Rishi can even meet her at Insomnia Con and woo her. It will be perfect. ▪️ Or will it? ▪️ Dimple and Rishi figure each other out pretty quickly. They have nothing in common. They want different things. But they also make each other laugh and might be able to help each other be their best selves–if they can just give each other a chance. ▪️ #instabooks #currentlyreading #amreading #instareads #bookgram #bookworm #bookblogging #bookblogger #bookstagrammer #bibliophile #booklove #bookphotography #instabook #reading #reader #booktography #bookstagram #igreads #booksofinstagram #goodreads #bookaholic #bookish #bookishfeature #bookstafeatures #bookstagramfeature #readersofinstagram #unitedbookstagram #whendimplemetrishi #sandhyamenon #summereads
