Weekly Rewind 6.26.21

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 some beautiful weather, hot-ass summer has officially arrived. I’ve spent most of my time indoors reading (but that’s also just kind of who I am as a person). I’ve already been slacking on the writing but don’t feel too bad about it yet. My bff was in town last weekend and we’ve been having crazy internet issues for the last couple of months. I plan on taking my laptop out on Monday to get some work done.

Blog and reading: Nothing on the blog. I’ve been reading The Sentence is Death, Malibu Rising and Illuminae. I sometimes leave my “currently reading” shelf on GR to its own devices and it is telling me that I’ve been reading Illumina since 2015 lol. It is the third time I’ve given this book a go but do think I’ll finish it this time.

What I’m watching: I’m on the 3rd season of Elementary. Because I can’t stream anything right now, I just chose a completed series and ordered the seasons on DVD from my library. It’s entertaining enough.

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

How We Fall Apart by Katie Zhao

Per synopsis: “Crazy Rich Asians meets One of Us is Lying, students at an elite prep school are forced to confront their secrets when their ex-best friend turns up dead.” I love me a good prep school murder, so I’m very excited about this one.

Fresh by Margot Wood

A novel that follows a young woman as she makes her way through her freshman year of college. I’m excited to read a book about this age group that isn’t “New Adult.”

If the Shoe Fits by Julie Murphy

This sounds quite a bit like One to Watch, following a plus-size woman who makes a splash as a plus-sized woman on a reality dating show.

Dangerous Play by Emma Kress

The girls of a field hockey team comes together after one of their own is assaulted at a party.

In My Dreams I Hold a Knife by Ashley Winstead

Per synopsis: “A college reunion turns dark and deadly in this chilling and propulsive suspense novel about six friends, one unsolved murder, and the dark secrets they’ve been hiding from each other—and themselves—for a decade.”

A Lesson in Vengeance by Victoria Lee

Per synopsis: “A dark, twisty, atmospheric thriller about a boarding school haunted by its history of witchcraft and two girls dangerously close to digging up the past.” Witchcraft and boarding schools = made for me.

Did I Say You Could Go by Melanie Gideon

A twisty thriller about friends with kids who continue to get embroiled in each other’s lives.

All Well’s by Mona Awad

Per synopsis: “Adarkly funny novel about a theater professor suffering chronic pain, who in the process of staging a troubled production of Shakespeare’s most maligned play, suddenly and miraculously recovers.” I’m always drawn to books that deal with Shakespeare in any form.

Palm Beach by Mary Adkins

A struggling couple from New York get sucked into the lives of a rich couple in Palm Beach. I really loved this author’s When You Read This.

The Husbands by Chandler Baker

A reimaging of The Stepford Wives — with husbands. I’m really 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!

  1. I keep meaning to pick up Illuminae… but somehow it never quite grabs me. Too many books, too little time, partly! Do you know why you bounced off before?
