Weekly Rewind 10.3.20

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.

Life and Blog

Life: Well, I made it through September. We are still in school with no reported cases so far. I’m so happy to be in the building, but hybrid learning (I have physical and online students simultaneously) continues to be one of the most exhausting things I’ve ever done. I’m very happy it’s October. Although I am not at all ready for the winter months, I do love fall and Halloween. 

Crazy about Trump, right? My first thought was please don’t let him have given it to Biden. My next was please don’t let him die because lord knows Pence is easier for a lot of people to swallow (for some reason), which would make the republicans for Biden swing back the other way. It’s all so nerve-wracking. 

Blog and reading: I didn’t post this week, not even my regular look at new releases (mostly because I was off on Monday which threw off my schedule). My reading has been a fairly mixed bag lately. I’ve been reading some MG novels and just started Troubled Blood (from the library). 

What I’m watching: Mr. Flix and I started the first season of Fargo. We’re just a couple of episodes in, but I’m loving it so far. 

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

For Review

The Ravens by Kass Morgan and Danielle Paige

This book about a sorority that is secretly a coven is easily in my top three most anticipated book of the year. 

Love Your Life by Sophie Kinsella

This looks like a classic Kinsella novel (an author I absolutely adored in my early 20s) of two people who fall in love during a retreat only to have reality hit them in the face when they return. 

Instant Karma by Marissa Meyer

A girl develops the ability to instantly cast either good or bad karma on anyone she meets. Her powers backfire on her slacker lab partner, though. This looks super cute. 

White Ivy by Susie Yang

A young woman’s obsession with her wealthy classmates continues years after school when she runs into one of the boys again and finds a way to get into his life. 

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 love fall too and can’t wait for Halloween… although I don’t even know what Halloween will be like thi year lol. Glad you haven’t had any cases yet. I have a daughter doing hybrid classes and I feel for the teachers, it’s gotta be hard.

    It is crazy about Trump! I feel like at this point nothing in 2020 will surprise me anymore! 🙂

    Have a great weekend!

  2. The Trump/COVID thing is crazy. I injured my shoulder and couldn’t sleep, so I was on Twitter when he tweeted the news. My first thought was that some angry Twitter employee had gotten into his account and was messing around. I didn’t think it was real. I’m glad your school hasn’t had any COVID cases. Hopefully it stays that way. Happy October!

  3. Actually I didn’t consider the Pence situation, from what I understand he’s certainly no better than Trump.
    I imagine hybrid teaching would be tough, kudos to you for giving it your all.

    Wishing you a great reading week
