The new books on my shelves and my week in a nutshell.
My Life and Blog
Life: Man am I ready for spring. I’m so thankful to have water and electricity, but it is still just so cold and icy and grey here. I’m ready for warm weather and sunshine (and I’m especially ready for spring break).
Blog and reading: I’m having a hard time keeping up with the blog right now. Over the years I’ve been doing this (eight…I think), the dedication I can give to it has come in starts and stops. Through it all, I’ve kept up on this one weekly post, even if that means typing it up at 4:30 on Saturday instead of Friday night like I like to. I think that for now, it will continue to be the only post I get up with any real frequency and I’m ok with that. I miss having a crowd of comments on my posts, but I’m having a hard time making the rounds. I’m just having a hard time doing anything right now. Those who have been hearing it from me all flipping year are sick of hearing it, I’m sure, but hybrid teaching is kicking my behind. Ahem, anyway, I DID finish a book this week! Every Last Fear, which comes out in a couple of weeks, was exactly the kind of fast-paced, twisty thriller that is like the only thing that is holding my attention right now.
What I’m watching: Reruns of old shows I’ve seen a million times. Suggestions welcome.
New books: I have a handful of pretties to share with you. So without further ado, I hope you’re all having fabulous, healthy, and warm weekends!
This cover is just perfection. I love it so much. This is a YA mystery that centers around a Native teen.
This police procedural follows a detective who is thrust into an investigation of a copycat killer of the serial killer who once stabbed and almost killed her. I’m about halfway through this one. I like it, but the formatting on the e-arc is terrible. I keep wondering if I should just wait until this actually comes out, but I’m so far into it that I’m sure I’ll just finish it.
Fifteen YA authors tackle works from Shakespeare. I’m a Shakespeare nerd to my very core, so I’m excited about this. Of all adaptions, the ones tackling the Bard as always my favorite (speaking of are we ever going to get the Gillian Flynn retelling of Hamlet? I’m starting to think not).
A girl was kidnapped and kept in a well for four day, but nobody believes her until she connects with a group online. Then one of those girls goes missing in the same way as she did.
A girl swears off love after being stood up for Homecoming, but finds out there might have been more to the story after falling for the dude’s cousin (or something).
Over 20 award-winning screenwriters discuss the craft. I love me books about the craft of writing.
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!
