The new books on my shelves and my week in a nutshell.
My Life and Blog
Life: The sun came out mid-week and temps got slightly higher. It felt like spring on Wednesday, and though I’m exhausted down into my very bones, my soul felt much lighter sitting outside for lunch.
I’ve signed up for a writing seminar tomorrow. My one and only real goal for this year is to write more, and I’ve been doing an okay job. I entered the writing contest last month and am taking the class tomorrow. What I really need to do is just write every day, but every day I am so tired after work that I immediately put on sweatpants and start a countdown until I can go to bed. What I’m hoping is that I can have some momentum writing going into the summer and then have a significantly productive summer.
Blog and reading: Nothing on the blog this week. After reading Every Last Fear last week, I had a hard time getting into anything this week. I have a TON of books I’m excited to read waiting for me. Hopefully, something will stick this weekend.
What I’m watching: Nothing new. I snagged Freaky from the library and am excited to watch it. I’m almost always a fan of “body switching” movies, and the serial killer and teen girl switch sounds really fun.
New books: I have a couple of pretties to share this week. So without further ado, I hope you’re having fabulous, healthy weekends!
Per synopsis: “One fire. Two murders. Three drowning bodies. One suspect . . . one stalker. This is a summer they won’t survive.” This is inspired by The Picture of Dorian Gray and sounds intriguing.
A series of stories about the forces that shapes girls into women. Part investigating reporting and part memoir.
Billed as the Forever for a new generation, this follows a girl who is humiliated on the night she was going to lose her virginity and finds out her mother is having an affair.
I loved Eight Perfect Murders from last year so much that I read it twice. This is actually getting some pretty dismal reviews, which I think is because of the subject matter. It follows a woman who cheats on her fiancée at her bachelorette party only to have the dude show up during her honeymoon.
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!
