The new books on my shelves and my week in a nutshell.
Life and Blog
Life: This last week was exactly what I needed. I read, I cooked, I watched bad tv. I did some online shopping (hello, Modcloth warehouse sale) and hit up the Target clearance sale. What I haven’t done is much cleaning (I don’t wanna –but man do I need to), but I thankfully have one more week of break.
Blog and reading: Nothing on the blog, but I did get some reading done. I finished Love is For Losers, which I loved. It was a super fun epistolary YA (my favorite) told in journal entries about a girl whose bff has fallen off the face of the earth once she got a boyfriend and who is dealing with her own first crush. I’m currently reading For Your Own Good by Samantha Downing, which comes out in July. I read He Started It over my last spring break, so it only felt fitting (even though I didn’t really like it – lol – I do enjoy her fast-paced writing).
New books: I have some new pretties to share this week — full of cute-looking YA romance and adult thrillers. So without further ado, I hope you’re all having fabulous weekends!
Set at a prestigious private school, this twisty thriller follows a teacher who once to teach particular students a lesson. This is the third Downing book I’ve read and is my favorite so far over halfway through (although I hated the ending of He Started It, so we’ll see).
Two friends escape to NYC for the night and have an adventure. I love this adorable cover.
A summer spent at a family camp and a cute employee. Inspired by Dirty Dancing, I’m assuming.
This MG novel follows a girl who wakes up to find a new app on her phone that allows her to hear boy’s thoughts. A retelling of Emma — this looks adorable.
A girl who has long had a crush on the unattainable boy who has moved back into town finds herself distracted by the annoying but cute boy next door.
A woman flees with her niece after finding her sister dead. Convinced it was her sister’s sleazy ex, she goes to FL as what seemed to be her sister’s wish. MKA is hit or miss for me. I enjoy her writing, but her stories are often too long for my tastes.
A woman with, well, six weeks to live finds out that somebody might have tried to kill her a year earlier. She’s determined to find out who tried to poison her before she’s gone for good.
This MG novel follows two connected summers, one happening today and one in the late 1980s.
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!
