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.
Life and Blog
Life: Despite taking a two hour nap after work, I am still deliriously tired. We are currently waiting for our pizza to be delivered, and I imagine I’ll be back in bed by 9pm. Lol. But I made it! I’m doing my last minute shopping tomorrow and then am hitting the road to see my family on Sunday. The drive is about 8 hours, which isn’t too bad, but is still a bit long. I haven’t my parents or sister for over a year, so I’m definitely excited.
Blog and reading: I was on a roll this week! I posted a look at book and movie releases in What I’m Excited for the Week of 12.17.18, a look at my winter tbr in this week’s TTT, and the book I’m dyyyying to get my hands on in a WoW post. I actually did quite well on the reading front too, finishing The Word is Murder and TBH, This is Awkward. I’m currently reading American Gods and am trying to decide what audiobooks to bring with me.
New books: A handful of pretties to share this week. So without further ado, I hope you’re all having fabulous weekends. I might get up the energy to write a couple of posts tomorrow, but if not I hope you also have a very Merry Christmas, if you celebrate!
That’s Not What I Heard by Stephanie Kate Strohm
This humorous novel follows multiple perspectives after the IT couple breaks up. I’ve enjoyed this author’s work in the past and am very much looking forward to this one.
All is Fair by Dee Garretson
This historical novel takes place during WWI and follows a young girl called away from boarding school for a war mission. It sounds interesting.
(Interesting these are both nose-down covers.)
What I bought
Pages Between Us by Lindsay Levitt and Robin Mellon
I’m very much trying to mix one MG novel into the pile of my current stack (I never really just read one at a time). This one is a cute story about girls new to middle school who decide to pass a notebook back and forth since that don’t have classes together this year.
What I snagged from the library
Once Upon a River by Diane Setterfield
This folktale-like story about a girl who comes back to life in an ancient inn sounds intriguing.
Like all franchises, each consecutive film has been weaker than the one before…but I’m still excited for this one.
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!
