The new books on my shelves and my week in a nutshell.
My Life and Blog
Life: I am officially on summer break. I still need to make my way back into the school to clean/sort my classroom (I’m seriously praying I didn’t leave food in my desk — which I’ve been known to do), but other than that, summer! 2020 has been a crazy year. I’ve been horrified by so much this last couple of weeks, but I do believe we are witnessing true change. For the sake of my students, I hope we are.
Blog and reading: I did post my regular look at new books and movies: What I’m Excited For, but I didn’t get it up until Thursday. I didn’t want to post anything on Tuesday that would just add unnecessary noise. I’ve been reading Landline for the first time (I tried it when it first came out but couldn’t get into it) and have been rereading 99 Days. I’m still reading The Bone Collector, which I imagine I will slowly get through. I recently snagged You Should See Me In a Crown, which I’m excited to start this weekend.
What I’m watching: We’ve finally finished Deadwood and watched the movie. I thought the series was well-written but have never really been into westerns. I’m definitely glad they made the movie, though, as I would have been right pissed if that is how the series ended. We’ve moved on to The Great on Hulu about Catherine the Great which is hilarious.
New books: I have a handful of pretties to share this week. So without further ado, I hope you’re all having fabulous weekends!
Oh, that cover! This follows a black, gay teen running for prom queen for the scholarship money, and it looks adorable.
This cover is just amazing, plus the words twisty thriller. I don’t really know anything beyond that.
A MG novel about a group of eighth grade girls who start a podcast to protest their school’s sexist dress code.
The scorned wife of a billionaire plots his downfall. I’ve been turning to twisty adult novels more and more.
A group of stories about a fraternity.
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!
