The new books on my shelves and my week in a nutshell.
My Life and Blog
Life: Yesterday was Mr. Flix’s and I’s anniversary. We got some late lunch to go from a friend’s restaurant and just hung out. Our area rolled back on some restrictions, but I frankly don’t want to be around a lot of people anyway. This weekend I plan to resume my semi-annual closet purge. I went through my pants about a week ago and then lost all steam. I still need to do pretty much my entire closet. Clothes and books are definitely the two things I spend money on — although I mostly buy used for both. I love my local Goodwill.
Blog and reading: I posted my normal look at new book, movie, and streaming releases on Tues: What I’m Excited For and a WoW on Wed. I can’t believe a full week has gone by as I’m still reading both B*Witch and The Magpie Murders and haven’t made a whole lot of progress on either. I seriously don’t know what I even did this week.
What I’m watching: We continued our binge of Bosch, finishing the fourth and fifth seasons. We started the sixth, but the storyline is going off the rails and neither of us were into it. Time to find a new series.
New books: I have a handful of pretties to share with you this week. So without further ado, I hope you’re all safe and healthy and having fabulous weekends! Happy Fourth, American friends!
A novel set in a mall in NJ during the 90s. The Jessica Darling series is truly one of my all-time favorites, so I’m excited about this one.
A woman shows up making accusations about a woman’s husband’s late wife and her death. I’ve only read Someone We Know by this author, but I really enjoyed it.
Per GR: “Crossings is an unforgettable and explosive genre-bending debut–a novel in three parts, designed to be read in two different directions, spanning a hundred and fifty years and seven lifetimes.” Doesn’t this sound so intriguing? And that cover.
Another adult thriller with dual narration and unreliable narrators. I’m finding lately that darker thrillers are the ones most holding my attention.
What I snagged from the library
Two writers plagued by writer’s block (a man who writes literary fiction and a woman who writes romance) decide to trade genres. I’ve heard great things for this rom-com and am excited to start it.
I was a huge fan of Emily Giffin’s first three books, but after The One and Only skeeved me out so much, I’ve had a hard time wanting to pick up her newer work.
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!
