Weekly Rewind 5.29.21

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: One more week of school and I am buried under an avalanche of essays and projects that need to be graded, which I have to do in the next couple of days so that I can then finalize grades and write a billion report card comments. BUT ONE MORE WEEK OF SCHOOL! Man, am I so ready for summer. It’s going to be amazing. 

Blog and reading: Nothing on the blog this week (see above). I’m currently reading Heartbreakers and Fakers and The Anatomy of Desire and am still rereading The Word is Murder

Watch I’m watching: Still play-off hockey! Let’s go round two!

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

For Review

Suburban Dicks by Fabian Nicieza

A pregnant mother of four who used to work as an FBI profiler and a disgraced journalist team up to solve the murder of gas station attendant. 

My Contrary Mary by Hand, Ashton, and Meadows

The team of three moves from Janes to Marys, starting with this retelling of Mary Queen of Scots.

Between You, Me, and the Honeybees by Amelia Diane Coombs

A recent college grad who is working on her family’s bee farm (is that the right word for it?) for the summer falls for the grandson of her family’s biggest competitor and tries to figure out how to tell her mom she isn’t going to college in the fall. 

Dream Girl by Laura Lippman

Per synopsis, “A dark, complex tale of psychological suspense with echoes of Misery involving a novelist, incapacitated by injury, who is plagued by mysterious phone calls.” 

That Weekend by Kara Thomas

A girl goes on a hike with her bff and her bff’s boyfriend (a boy she herself likes) and is found alone. Are the other two dead? What happened?

The Girl Least Likely by Katy Loutzenhiser

Per synopsis: “To All the Boys meets The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (with a dash of Dumplin’) in this funny, romantic, and heartfelt coming of age story about a teen stand-up comic learning how to be her truest self.” This sounds cute.

Survive the Night by Riley Sager

Per synopsis: “It’s November 1991. George H. W. Bush is in the White House, Nirvana’s in the tape deck, and movie-obsessed college student Charlie Jordan is in a car with a man who might be a serial killer.” Fun!

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!

  2. Yea for almost holidays! We still have about a month to go and it’s crazy here. We had to close school from Wednesday to do some deep cleaning after a covid case, so you can just imagine all the chaos awaiting us in the upcoming week.

    Luckily you have some great books to look forward to.

    Good luck with the last week!
