The new books on my shelves and my week in a nutshell.
Life and Blog
Life: Man was this week off exactly what I needed. I did absolutely nothing and it was everything I thought it could be (10 pts if you get the quote). Ok, I did some grocery shopping and a couple of loads of dishes…but not the book shelf culling or really the actually cleaning I should have done. I’m not letting myself feel guilty about it, though. This year has been kicking my ass and I very much needed several days of just laying about.
Thanksgiving was nice. We didn’t travel or entertain. We decided to cook up some Cornish game hens, but still had the regular sides like mashed potatoes and green bean casserole. It was delicious and left us with a reasonable amount of left-overs (I just had a second dinner — perfect).
Blog and reading: Nothing on the blog this week as I was too lazy being, well, lazy. I finished my reread of Ready Player One earlier today and plan on diving into Ready Player Two this weekend.
What I’m watching: I decided to give myself permission to not read the source material of every little thing and started watching the first season of You. I’ve owned the book for awhile but honestly don’t think I’ll ever get to it. We also finished the third season of Fargo finally. I liked it, but it was definitely the weakest of the three seasons.
New books: I have a handful of pretties to share. So without further ado, I hope you’re all having fabulous, healthy weekends!
“In this gripping YA novel about social media bullying and half-truths, one girl’s discovery of a dead baby in her high school locker room rocks an entire community.” This one sounds so interesting to me. We were just watching the case of the girl who was sentenced after burying her stillborn baby without telling anyone — imagine who traumatic that would be.
“Angie Thomas revisits Garden Heights seventeen years before the events of The Hate U Give in this searing and poignant exploration of Black boyhood and manhood.”
A woman who wakes up in the hospital with amnesia uses her social media to find out the truth about what happened to her.
“A razor-sharp, wickedly smart suspense debut about an ambitious influencer mom whose soaring success threatens her marriage, her morals, and her family’s safety. Followed by Millions, Watched by One.” Influencer culture is so intriguing to me for some reason.
“To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before meets Save the Date in this sweet and hijinks-filled rom-com about a teen girl who will do whatever it takes to find a date for her sister’s wedding.”
What I snagged from the library
Starting immediately after the events of the second book, Wade discovers a final key that unlocks both life-changing technology and a new, bigger adversary.
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!
