Weekly Rewind: 11.28.20

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: 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!

For Review

Every Single Lie by Rachel Vincent

“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.

Concrete Rose by Angie Thomas

“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.”

Siri, Who Am I? by Sam Tschida

A woman who wakes up in the hospital with amnesia uses her social media to find out the truth about what happened to her.

People Like Her by Ellery Lloyd

“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.

The Meet-Cute Project by Rhiannon Richardson

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

Ready Player Two by Ernest Cline

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!

  1. I could never really get into YOU. Never finished the book. The series was a bit better, but I also didn’t finish it.

    My husband is busy reading Ready Player Two and he says it’s quite good!

    Have a good week and happy reading!

  2. Sounds like you really deserved a break and I’m glad you got one. We had the full dinner but very trimmed down as it was just the two of us and the 2 pups. I can’t wait to read Concrete Rose. Very interested in that part of the story as I loved The Hate U Give.

    I actually read “You” after I watched the first season. I loved Joe so much (yes I realize how twisted that sounds) that I just had to pick up the book. I’ve also watched the second season without reading the second book but will soon since I just got an arc of the 3rd book. Hope you’re enjoying it. I’m getting ready to start watching The Flight Attendant.

    Hope you have a great week!

  3. I had trouble watching the series You (hated the too-stupid-to-live “heroin”) so I guess I’ll never read the novel. Doing nothing is OK, especially in times like these ! I did nothing much this week apart from watching Miss Marple – the series with Geraldine McEwan at the start 😉
