Weekly Rewind 7.24.21

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: I am beyond excited to be leaving for vacation in less than 24 hours (and because I’m typing this on Friday morning, I’ll likely BE on vacation when you read this). It’s only a five day jaunt, but after this last school year, I’ve never needed to get out of town more. 

Looking for an old review the other day, I ended up in a rabbit hole of reading some of the reviews (especially movie) and discussion posts I used to write when I first started blogging years ago and it made me so nostalgic for what this blog used to be (when I was back on Blogger). I loved writing for this blog. I spent a lot of time on posts and was proud of it. I was, of course, also working a boring ass office job where I actually had time, but even now that I’m off for the summer, I’m still only posting on Saturdays. It’s true that I’ve had serious internet issues all flipping summer, but I still miss writing. 

What I’m reading: I’m currently reading Friends Like These, which I’m pretty into. I loved the author’s A Good Marriage last year. I just snagged You’re Next in PB to take with me. I did the whole “how many books should I take on vacation and decided one and my Kindle will suffice for 5 days (my Kindle with thousands of books including all those e-arcs I need to be getting on). I’ll probably end up sneaking an extra book in my luggage because of who I am as a person, though, let’s be honest.

What I’m watching: I was so happy to see Miracle Workers made a 3 season (I don’t know how that escaped my radar). I’m enjoying Oregon Trail, but The Dark Ages was still the best. I’m also watching White Lotus, which I’m digging. I plan on getting to Mare of Easttown next week — I just got HBO back.

New books: I’m pretty excited about the pile of pretties I’m sharing today. So without further ado, I hope you’re all having fabulous weekends!

For Review

A Slow Fire Burning by Paula Hawkins 

I absolutely loved Girl On a Train and am super excited for this one. It follows the murder of a man and the three women who all had separate motives. 

The Woods Are Always Watching by Stephanie Perkins 

I couldn’t get into this author’s last “thriller”, but I love her romances so much that I have to give this one a shot. It follows two bffs who are in the midst of a falling out when bad shit starts going on in tbe forest during a camping trip.

Witch Haven by Sasha Peyton Smith

A young woman in the early 1900s realizes she has powers before getting thrust into a war between Witches and wizards.

My Heart is a Chainsaw by Stephen Graham Jones

Per synopsis: “On the surface is a story of murder in small-town America. But beneath is its beating heart: a biting critique of American colonialism, Indigenous displacement, and gentrification, and a heartbreaking portrait of a broken young girl who uses horror movies to cope with the horror of her own life.”

The Flyers by Beth Turley

This MG follows 4 girls who come to the city for a magazine’s “young flyers” program.

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!
