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, 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: I’m enjoying a three-day weekend for the Easter holiday. Even though I just had two weeks off for spring break a couple of weeks back, it feels much needed. The weather was gross and rainy all day, but it’s definitely starting to warm up. We rested comfortably in the mid 70s for much of this week. I don’t have much going on as far as weekend plans, mostly just sleeping and reading and watching hockey play-offs.
Blog and reading: On Tuesday I posted my regular book and movie release post: What I’m Excited For and on Wednesday I posted a WoW. I’m currently reading A Good Kind of Trouble, which is a MG novel, Dig, and Just One Bite.
New books: A handful of lovelies to share. So without further ado, I hope you’re all having fabulous weekends!
The Missing Season by Gillian French
Missing children and a old town lore monster. I’m loving this cover.
We Are the Perfect Girl by Ariel Caplan
This updated Cyrano de Bergerac story looks fluffy and fun. I’m excited for this one.
Star-Crossed by Minnie Darke
A woman falls for a dude who is decidedly not falling for her. She decides that because he is a true astrology believer that she will meddle in the astrology section of the newspaper she works for. This sounds…interesting.
What I snagged from the library
Descendant of the Crane by Joan He
I just couldn’t ignore this beautiful cover–even if YA fantasy isn’t my first choice.
A Good Kind of Trouble by Lisa Moore Ramee
This is a cute MG novel about a girl finding her place in the world.
I’m certainly curious about this one. Unbreakable was horrible and Split was…ok. I can’t help but want awesome things from this director, but he never really pulls through (besides the Sixth Sense, obviously).
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!
