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: Wednesday was my birthday, but it was pretty low-key this year. I’ve just been so exhausted lately that the thought of going out on a Wednesday was too much. Instead we ordered in and just chilled out. There’s a new restaurant I want to check out, so I think we’re going to hit it up for brunch on Sunday.
Blog and reading: This week I posted about new book and movie releases in my weekly post: What I’m Excited For. There were so many book releases this week I’m hoping to get to. I also shared a WoW. I’m still currently reading Famous in a Small Town, which I’m enjoying. I’ve also been making my way through the Popularity Paper series, which are quick and adorable.
What I’m watching: No movies this week, but I’m still really enjoying both True Detective and Deadly Class.
New book: I have a small handful to share this week. So without further ado, I hope you’re all having fabulous weekends!
Rayne & Delilah’s Midnite Matinee by Jeff Zentner
Two teen girls who host a movie-monsters cable access show have to start thinking about their futures during their senior year.
We Set the Dark on Fire by Tehlor Mejia
This sounds like The Handmaid’s Tale lite. Anybody try this yet? Worth it?
Sorry Not Sorry by Jaime Reed
This follows two ex BFFs. One who is desperate need of a new kidney and the other who is a match.
What I snagged from the library
Enchantee by Gita Trelease
After the death of her parents, a young woman turns to dark magic to transform herself into a courtesan of Marie Antoinette’s court.
Best Babysitters Ever by Caroline Cala
After reading about Kristy’s best idea, three girls decide to start their own babysitter’s club. The BSC was my jam back in the day. I’m excited for this.
A group of women band together to pull off a heist to pay off their husbands’ debts.
I really quite enjoyed The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (both the book and the film), and although I did read the second book in the series, I never got around to the third or this one. I’ll probably end up watching the film w/o reading. My TBR is just too long.
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!
