The new books on my shelves and my week in a nutshell.
My Life and Blog
Life: This week brings us to the end of the first trimester. I have essays and projects up the wazoo to grade before spending all of next weekend finalizing grades and writing student comments. This year started slow for me, but now I can’t believe it is November. Like a lot of places, the weather here to a crazy dip on Halloween. Wednesday was gorgeous and sunny — by Thursday night the temp had dropped 40 degrees. Crazy.
Blog and reading: This week I got up my regular look at new book and movie releases: What I’m Excited For. I had a slow reading week, but I’m still reading and enjoying The Gifted School. I started a reread of Scythe in preparation of The Toll (the third and final book of the series) coming out on Tuesday.
What I’m watching: I watched the first episode of Mrs. Fletcher on Sunday. I read the book years ago and remember bits and pieces. I might actually want a reread. Tom Perrotta is heavily involved in the series, so I have no doubt it will stay true and Kathryn Hahn and Casey Wilson are always delightful.
I’m super excited for His Dark Materials premiering this Monday. It has a fantastic cast. HBO is certainly doing whatever it can to hold on to viewers after the end of GoT.
New books: Just a few pretties to share this week. So without further ado, I hope you’re all having fantastic weekends!
In the early 90s a group of girls were part of a club called The Dead Girls Club — a group obsessed with ghost stories like the Red Woman. Then one of them gets killed. 30 years later, a necklace of hers shows up and somebody wants revenge. Doesn’t this sound fun?
What I bought
I’ve been hearing good things about this for ages and found a brand new copy at Goodwill yesterday for $2. I’m excited!
This was also a $2 snag. This is another book I’ve been wanting due to high praise. A successful Goodwill run.
What I snagged from the library
Cabot has gotten into the graphic novel game AND the DC Universe.
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!
