Weekly Rewind 5.9.20

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 really sure what to say today. Life continues. I have three more weeks of school before summer break. I have some major planning to do this weekend for the last unit of the year for one of my classes, but that’s a problem for Sunday me. Saturday me is making some of my world-famous (*house-famous*) potato salad (the secret ingredient is love. JK, it’s bacon), reading, and probably both a nap and a bath.

Blog and reading: This week I posted my regular look at new book and movie releases What I’m Excited For. I’m currently reading a handful of books and am into all of them: The Good Marriage (a mystery of a dead wife told from the perspective of the lawyer who is defending her husband, the wife herself in the days leading up to her death, and transcripts from the grand jury trial); Rodham (a novelization of Hillary Rodham Clinton and what her life might have looked like had she never married Bill Clinton), and Again Again (a “love story” about two teens at a boarding school but with the same events being told in parallel worlds — it’s interesting and I love e. lockhart). I’m also rereading one of my favorite writing guides Save the Cat!

What I’m watching: My husband recorded a couple of episodes of a show called Cake because he thought it looked interesting, and I was immediately enthralled. I honestly haven’t been watching much TV these last couple of weeks. So much of my energy is going into remote teaching right now, but I’m creating a list for summer break (in just a handful of weeks).

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

For Review

The Falling in Love Montage by Ciara Symth

I love the idea of two girls planning all of their dates around swoony rom-com cliches. This looks really fun, but the seriousness of one of the mothers having early onset dementia makes me think there will be a tinge of seriousness too.

Half Life by Lillian Clark

The premise of this book is intriguing. It follows a perfectionist teen who decides to sign up for a beta clone program only to watch her clone start living the life she wishes for herself.

Seven Clues to Home by Gae Polisner

This MG novel follows a girl following a birthday scavenger hunt set up by her now dead best friend.

What I snagged from the library (Overdrive)

Ask Again, Yes by Mary Beth Keane

I’ve heard great things about this family drama. I don’t know that much about it beyond that it follows to police officers who are neighbors. I’m excited to read this.

Best Laid Plans by Cameron Lund

The last of her friends to lose her virginity, a girl makes plans to sleep with her best friend so she isn’t too inexperienced for her crush.

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. I feel like bacon is a pretty good secret ingredient haha! Again Again sounds fun, and so does Seven Clues To Home. What a neat cover on that one too! Fun.
