Weekly Rewind 8.7.21

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: Mr. Flix and I had a wonderful five-day vacation. We spent some time with my parents on the lake and then spent a day and a half in Nashville. I’m down to two weeks of summer break and I am NOT ready. With the Delta variant, this year looks like it is going to be a repeat of last. August always feels like one long Sunday night, but this year especially.  I’m going to do my best to spend my last couple of weeks reading and taking naps lol. As long as we aren’t hybrid, it will be okay.

What I’m reading: I’m currently reading For Your Own Good, which I got halfway through early this year and then set aside for some unknown reason (seriously why do I do that with books I’m enjoying? It makes no sense). I’m also reading A Slow Fire Burning, Paula Hawkins latest (I’m enjoying it) and They’ll Never Catch Us.

What I’m watching: Mr. Flix and I finished the final season of Bosch and have been making our way through the existing seasons of Rick and Morty. I’ve watched the first two episodes of White Lotus and need to catch up on the last two..

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

For Review

Friends Like These by Kimberly McCreight 

I’ve actually made some progress on this one too. It follows a handful of college friends with a shared shady-event past who have gathered to convince one of them to go to rehab, when one friend ends up dead and another missing. It’s pretty interesting so far.

Never Saw Me Coming by Vera Kurian 

This follows a group of college psychopaths who are on scholarship for taking part in a study. When one them ends up dead, they need to figure out who they can trust.

Rock Paper Scissors by Alice Feeney 

A man and woman are on a make it or break it trip to Scotland. I’m familiar with the author but haven’t read anything by her. I’ve heard good things. 

The Night She Disappeared by Lisa Jewell 

A 19 year old mother leaves her daughter with her own mother one night to go on a date and never returns.

Edie in Between by Laura Sibson 

A girl living with her grandma and the ghost of her mother (as well as the ghosts of many relatives) finds an old journal of her mother’s and starts to understand the witchy powers of her family. I love this tarot card cover. 

 Double Solitaire by Craig Nova

An LA “fixer” starts to doubt his life choices when he falls for the new woman next door. He is put to the test when called to fix a wealthy client’s horrendous crime.

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!
