Weekly Rewind 6.19.21

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 week of summer done and it was a great one. My beastie is in town from my home state of WY, and I finished outlining the first section of my work-in-progress — a huge step in working on this novel.

Blog and Reading: I posted a review of Today, Tonight, Tomorrow a book I read and loved last week. I also finished my reread of The Word is Murder and have started the second book of that series.

What I’m Watching: I’m onto the second season of Elementary.

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

For Review

Not a Happy Family by Shari Lapena

The rich parents of three adult siblings have been murdered and they all have a reason to have done it. While I don’t find Shari Lapena’s work particularly ground-breaking, I’ve really enjoyed her last couple of books and was so happy to snag this one.

They’ll Never Catch Us by Jessica Goodman

Per synopsis: “A new fast-paced thriller about two sisters vying for the top spot on their cross-country team–the only way out of their stifling small town. But their dreams are suddenly thrown into peril when a new girl threatens to take away everything they’ve worked for… until she disappears.” I’m excited for this one.

The Silver Blonde Elizabeth Ross

Per synopsis: “A lush historical mystery set in post-World War II America against the flashy backdrop of Hollywood’s film studios about a shocking murder that threatens to unearth the ghosts of a young German immigrant’s past.” I don’t read a lot of historical fiction, but I love old Hollywood.

False Witness by Karin Slaughter

A lawyer with the biggest case she’s ever received realizes that the accused picked her for a reason…he knows what she did 20 years ago and she better get him acquitted or else. Sounds fun.

The Bachelor by Andrew Palmer

After a break-up, a man moves back to his Iowa hometown and becomes obsessed with the show The Bachelor.

Fierce Little Thing by Miranda Beverly-Whittemore

Years after a woman had escaped what sounds like a cult compound, she and four others are called back by a blackmailer who is threatening to tell what they did as teens.

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!

  1. Karin Slaughter and ooh a new Lapena? I agree with you about her stuff- it doesn’t blow me away but the couple of hers I’ve read I’ve liked.

    Congrats on the outlining!
