Weekly Rewind 4.10.21

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: After two weeks of break and one week of fully remote school (so people could quarantine if they travelled), I am back to work on Monday. As a teacher, April and May tend to both drag on forever and fly by — if that makes any sense. My spring break was full of reading, napping, and bad tv, and it was exactly the break I needed.

Blog and reading: Nothing on the blog this week. I finished reading Later by Stephen King, which I enjoyed. It follows a boy who can see dead people (with an appropriate acknowledgment of The Sixth Sense). I’ve been reading The Plot and That Summer — but have been struggling to read the past couple of days.

What I’m watching: I watched Promising Young Woman and loved it. It was so good and powerful. I was a bit like wtf at the end — but it was perfect.

New books: I have a handful of pretties to share this week. So without further ado, I hope you’re having fantastic weekend!

For Review

People We Meet on Vacation by Emily Henry

A woman who wants to reconnect with the friend she had a falling out with — and who she might be in love with — convinces him to take a weeklong vacation with her.

Cool for the Summer by Dahlia Adler

A girl is thrilled that she seems to finally have a chance with the dude she has long had a crush on, only to have the girl she had a summer fling with show up at her school.

Mary Jane by Jessica Anya Blau

Almost Famous meets Daisy Jones. This is a coming-of-age novel that follows a 14 year old girl in 1970s Baltimore who is nannying for a family hiding a rock star for the summer.

The Plot by Jean Hanff Korelitz

I’m about halfway through this one. It follows a has been writer who teaches creative writing at a second-rate low residency. One of his students is working on a novel that has an amazing, original plot. A few years after they met, the teacher finds out that the student has died — apparently without ever having written the novel, so of course he writes it, it explodes and someone is threatening him saying he knows what the writer has done. It’s pretty good so far.

That Summer by Jennifer Weiner

A woman who has been getting emails meant for a woman whose email is one letter off from hers strikes up a friendship with the woman, only to find out that their meeting might not have been as accidently as it seemed.

A Special Place for Women by Laura Hankin

A reporter infiltrates a secret society full of powerful women who help pull strings all over. I love a good secret society.

While Justice Sleeps by Stacey Abrams

A political thriller following a law clerk by Stacey Abrams. I’m excited for this one.

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!
