The new books on my shelves and my week in a nutshell.
Since I started this blog I’ve participated in Stacking the Shelves, which is a weekly feature hosted by Tynga’s Reviews, and I’m going to continue linking to that meme. Throughout my student teaching semester I was using my weekend post as a way to let people know what’s going on in my life, so I’ve decided to rename my weekend post because this feature is more personal than just what books I’ve received. The Weekly Rewind will be about what’s going on with me and my blog, as well as about the books I’ve added to my shelves.
Life and Blog
Life: I’m home for a long weekend for the last time before I’m home for good (well, hopefully, at the very least I’ll be home for the summer). When I get back I have three and a half weeks left to go. 17 teaching days total. I’m not going to lie, I am beyond ready for this year to be over…even if it was about as good of a first year of teaching that I could have asked for. I’m just ready to be home with my husband and cats.
New books: May is full of pretty looking titles, and I have a few to show you. I also made a trip to B&N with the remainder of a gift card on Tuesday so I could snag Kasie West’s latest (and bought a couple of other books, of course). So without further adieu, I hope you are all having fabulous weekends!
I’m not going to lie, I don’t have a clue what this is about. I saw that cover and went: mine! Fantasy, I’m assuming, I think multiple worlds…
This looks like a cute he said/she said love story.
Per GR: “Alex fights a daily battle to figure out the difference between reality and delusion. Armed with a take-no-prisoners attitude, her camera, a Magic 8-Ball, and her only ally (her little sister), Alex wages a war against her schizophrenia, determined to stay sane long enough to get into college.” This sounds really interesting.
I’m obsessed with mob stories, so I’m excited to read this…but that is one of the worst titles ever. I seriously cringe every time I see it.
Woodstock! That’s all I need to know about this one.
A girl who fingered a dude for the kidnapping of her friend’s little sister starts to wonder if she was wrong. Sounds interesting.
Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan MatsonI’ve been meaning to read this one for ages. I love friendship-focused stories.The Fill-in Boyfriend by Kasie WestYay! I started this yesterday. I’m not very far, but I’m enjoying it so far. Scorpio Races by Maggie StiefvaterI’ve tried to get into this before, but I’m hoping I just wasn’t in the mood for it at the time. It was before I read The Raven Boys which I loved.
What I snagged from library
I got the e-book from my library. I’ve heard nothing but praise for this one, so I’m pretty excited.
I love her memoirs. This is also an e-book through my library.
The Imitation Game with Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley
This looks really good, and I love both of the stars.
Inherent Vice with Reece Witherspoon and Joaquin Phoneix and whole slew of other actors
I have no idea what this is about, but I’m intrigued.
