The new books on my shelves and my week in a nutshell.
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 decided to rename my weekend post because this feature is more personal than just what books I’ve received. Five years later, The Weekly Rewind continues to be about what’s going on with me and my blog, as well as about the books I’ve added to my shelves. This post is linked to Stacking the Shelves over at Tynga’s Reviews and the Sunday Post over at Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
My Life and Blog
Life: One more week before break. Five more days.
Blog and reading: I posted mini(ish) reviews to two of the books I finished last week, Paperback Crush and Nine Perfect Strangers. The post can be found here: Short and Sweet. I am currently reading/listening to The Word is Murder which is an interesting murder mystery where the author is a character of the story who is working with the “detective.” It’s a bit strange but very original. After seeing the trailer for the second season of American Gods, I finally took my copy off of my shelves. I’m also reading Warren the 13th, which is a cute younger MG novel.
New books: A small handful of pretties to share this week. So without further ado, hope you’re all having fabulous weekends!
The Field Guide to the North American Teenager by Ben Phillipe
A teenage boy who moves to Texas from Canada starts labels the kids he goes to school with in typical fashion (mean cheerleader, etc) until he starts to see them as real people. I love a teen boy perspective.
The Woman Inside by E.G. Scott
I love a good psychology fiction story, but I’m supppper picky about them. This one is getting some pretty middling reviews which has me worried. It is a “cat and mouse” story between a couple after his infidelity.
What I Bought
Warren the 13th by Tania del Rio
I’m always trying to snag MG novels that my students will snag off my shelves. I couldn’t resist this cover.
What I snagged from the library
The Secret Loves of Geek Girls by various authors
This is a fun anthology of a mix of graphic and prose nonfiction stories.
As bad as the reviews for this were, I can’t help but be excited about this. We’ll see.
Well that’s it for me this week. Feel free to leave a link to whatever weekend post you do (Stacking the Shelves, The Sunday Post, etc). I love to see what books people have recently snagged and especially enjoy hearing about my fellow bloggers’ weeks. I hope you are all having a fabulous weekend!
