Weekly Rewind 3.21.20

Weekly Rewind

The new books on my shelves and my week in a nutshell.

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 not trying to make light what is happening in the world right now, but I have to admit that I’ve spent the first week of my spring break exactly as I had pictured it: watching tv, taking naps, and reading. Poor Mr. Flix isn’t made for this type of isolation, but I really am. One more week of break is in front of me, and then I need to start transitioning my lessons for remote learning.

Blog and reading: I posted my regular look at book and movie releases: What I’m Excited For. I hope to get more content up next week, but I rarely sat in front of my computer this week. I’m currently reading Little Fires Everywhere in anticipation of the show, which I’m enjoying but it’s a bit slower going than I’m looking for right now. I’m about 2/3 of the way through. I started He Started It last night in hopes I’ve really just sinking my teeth into something. I liked, but didn’t love, My Lovely Wife last year, but remember it being readable.

What I’m watching: We finished The Mandalorian. I liked it, but it really wasn’t quite as awesome as I’d been lead to believe. I watched the first episode of Hunters finally and am looking forward to this rest of the show. I also enjoyed the Westworld season 3 premiere.

New books: I have a handful of pretties to share this week. Just review books this week because my library closed. So without further ado, I hope you’re all having fabulous weekends! Stay safe and healthy!

For Review

He Started It by Samantha Downing

This follows three siblings and two of their significant others on a road trip that follows a road trip they took as children with their grandfather as stipulated by his will in order to claim their inheritance. This has nice fast chapters and a story that is unfolding both slowly, but in a way that makes the reader want to keep reading.

Verona Comics by Jennifer Dugan

Two teens fall in love in a indie comic store. This looks so cute.

Late to the Party by Kelly Quindlen

A teen girl becomes friends with a popular boy and breaks out of her shell without telling her best friends.

Little Secrets by Jennifer Hillier

Per the synopsis, “A mother driven to the edge by the disappearance of her son learns her husband is having an affair with the woman who might have kidnapped him.” It sounds fascinating.

The Prettiest by Brigit Young

A group of girls band together after a list ranking the top 50 prettiest. This sounds similar to The List but for the MG crowd.

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!

  1. Ooh that sounds like a perfect break so far! With everything going on it’s good to be able to just relax and take it easy. So much stress and fear out there right now. Hope your next week is great as well.

    I’m curious about Westworld S3!

  2. I think I’m built for staying home as well. It’s killing my coworker who can’t stay home if her life depended on it. I told her this morning she’s putting everyone at risk. I have a copy of Little Secrets and have been having great luck with thrillers this year. I haven’t read Little Fires Everywhere but did watch episode 1 yesterday and am liking it so far.

  3. Looks like a good list of books to look forward to 🙂 I usually work in a school kitchen, so I’m just hunkering down and reading. Definitely not a fan of cooking dinner every day though. A real vacation for me requires a lot more eating out, but I don’t trust anyone now. LOL Take care of you and yours!
