Weekly Rewind 3.28.20

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 know things have been so crazy for a lot of people, and I hope if you’re reading this, that your world is still fairly peaceful and healthy. I’ve been on spring break, so even though it’s been a bit surreal, I’ve mostly spent my time at home, reading, watching tv, and napping.

Over the next few days, I need to start buckling down on switching my lesson plans over to an online format. My first distance learning day is Wed. We are teaching via Zoom like a lot of universities. It’ll be interesting.

Blog and reading: I didn’t get anything posted this week–it’s been a weird one. The one day I sat down to work WordPress wasn’t working, so I just went about my life. I finished He started It and Little Fires Everywhere. He Started It started to get a bit tediously twisty as it continued, but I liked it alright. Little Fires Everywhere was also alright. I think the show might be better — we’ll see. I’m currently rereading When You Read This. I also just started Foolish Hearts and Defending Jacob. I’ve been thinking about rereading the Jessica Darling series and will probably start Sloppy Firsts this weekend.

What I’m watching: I watched the newest Charlie’s Angels and really liked it. Kristen Stewart was honestly such a fun and interesting choice.

New books: I have a small handful of review books that I’m excited to share this week. So without further ado, I hope you’re all having fabulous weekends! Stay safe and healthy!

For Review

Clique Bait by Ann Valett

A girl sets out to get revenge on the popular clique after they ruin her best friend’s life. I’ve been looking forward to this one.

Seven Endless Forests by April Genevieve Tucholke 

This is a “bloody” retelling of King Arthur. I love this cover and am excited for this one as well.

The Sweeney Sisters by Lian Dolan

After the death of their literary giant father, the three Sweeney sisters finds out that they have a fourth half sister.

The Popularity Code by Stephanie Faris

A MG Mean Girls about a girl who finds herself wrapped up in cyber bullying.

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!

    If you need any help with the technical part of distance teaching, let me know. I’ve been doing it for two weeks now, and think I’ve got it all figured out. Of course, my students are in high school, but we still use Zoom and Google Meet. I hope you’ll have a wonderful week ahead. Stay safe and healthy 🙂

  5. The Seven Endless Forests cover is amazing! I hope you enjoy the book.

    Good luck with the distance learning! Everything is so surreal at the moment… We’re entering week two of a government mandated lockdown and homeschooling while working from home too. :/

  6. I hope the switch to teaching online this week goes smoothly.

    You’re one of the few people I’ve run across that has read the Jessica Darling series. She was so relatable. And how could you not fall for Marcus Flutie? 🙂 It truly deserved more attention. And a reread of the series sounds awesome.
