The new books on my shelves and my week in a nutshell.
My Life and Blog
Life: Listen, I know people are always like: I can’t believe it’s (insert month here), but I seriously can’t believe it’s August. How is it August?! My summer break is down to just a few short weeks. I’ve been dragging my feet on getting ready for this year that’s bad even for a procrastinator. I think being in my house almost nonstop for the past few months is messing with my psyche.
Blog and reading: This week I posted my regular look at new books, movies, and streaming: What I’m Excited For. I’m currently about halfway through True Story which comes out next week and All Eyes On Her which came out this week. I’m enjoying, although not loving both. I’ve also been reading a lot of nonfiction for my current work in progress, which I’m excited about but that needs a lot of research.
What I’m watching: Mr. Flix and I are still enjoying Perry Mason. Word is that it’s been renewed for a second season even though it was supposed to just be a limited series. Which I’m excited for! I hope we get to see several seasons. I’ve also started my somewhat annual rewatch of Dexter. I know I should try something new, but I just love it so much (especially the first four seasons). I’ve never watched the last season and barely got through the seventh. Maybe this time I’ll actually watch to the end (yes, I know how it ends).
New books: I have a handful of pretties to share this week. So without further ado, I hope you’re all having fantastic, healthy weekends!
A teen is able to jump in and out of different stories becoming different characters. To be honest, this is getting dismal reviews, but I’m still going to give it a try.
This sounds like a pretty classic horror story with a YA twist. A clown starts to take out kids in a small (I’m assuming mid-western) town.
A teen on the verge of her big break with a very famous grandma tries to find her way back into the limelight after getting blacklisted.
I don’t pick up a lot of fantasy, but the synopsis of magicians facing off in daring games to be the headliner of a circus sounded fun (if a little too reminiscent of The Night Circus).
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!
