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.

Life and Blog

Life: My first week back to work is in the books. This was the PD week without students, who start on Tuesday. It’s been an adjustment getting up early again. I’m naturally pretty nocturnal and haven’t gotten out of bed before 10AM in weeks. So much time this week was spent rearranging my classroom to put the required amount of space between the tables that are usually arranged in groups, meetings about health procedures, and troubleshooting the technology to have both in-class and online students at the same time, that I didn’t get a whole of lesson planning done, but I’ve already decided that this is the school year where I give myself grace.

Blog and reading: This week I posted my normal look at new books, movies, and streaming releases: What I’m Excited For. I’m currently reading None Shall Sleep, but I didn’t get a whole lot of reading done this week.

What I’m watching: Not a whole lot outside of hockey. Mr. Flix and I watched The Old Guard (the Netflix movie with C. Theron). It was pretty entertaining although we certainly spent a good portion of it practicing our best Mystery Science Theater impressions.

New Books: I have a handful of pretties to share this week. So without further ado, I hope you’re all having fabulous weekends!

For Review

White Fox by Sara Faring

Years after their mother’s disappearance, two sisters get drawn back into the mystery through her last screenplay.

Vampires Never Get Old by various authors

A collection of vampire stories by some pretty big names like V.E. Schwab and Julie Murphy (that cover is truly hideous, though).

Smash It! by Francina Simone

A junior in high school decides not to let her insecurities get the best of her. This cover is so cute.

And Now She’s Gone by Rachel Howzell Hall

A woman is gone, but is she really missing? That is the question in this cat and mouse thriller between two women.

What I Bought

aa

Sadie by Courtney Summers

I couldn’t help but get myself and “back to work” gift since this came out in PB this week. I’ve heard awesome things about this book and can’t really explain why I haven’t read it yet.

What I snagged from the library

aa

Parachutes by Kelly Yang

This looks like an important YA novel that tackles hard topics like immigration and sexual assault. The author’s tweets about her own experience with sexual assault during college and the way the school handled it were devastating to read.

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. It is hard I imagine when it’s time to go back. I’m a night person too so I naturally sleep in whenever I can lol. Hope the return of students goes well!

    I love the look of White fox.
