The new books on my shelves and my week in a nutshell.
Life and Blog
Life: Down to the last weekend of freedom. Every year summer goes by just a little bit faster. I didn’t accomplish nearly as much as I wanted writing-wise. I finished the outline for the first part of my novel (out of five sections) and worked out a lot of the plot for a couple more sections. I know I have a solid idea and hope to write it over the course of the upcoming school year.
Mr. Flix is out of town for a few days, and I was super excited to eat whatever and watch whatever, but after getting two fillings yesterday, my mouth is seriously killing me and I cannot chew. It blows.
What I’m reading: I didn’t finish any books this week and mostly just flitted from book to book without finishing any of them.
What I’m watching: I watched Quiet Place II, which was fine but very much second verse same as the first. I also watched the newest Suicide Squad, which was definitely better than the first (which, of course, isn’t saying much).
New books: I have a handful of pretties that I’m excited to share. I’m on my phone so am not going to include links today. So without further ado, I hope you’re all having fabulous weekends!
All These Bodies by Kendare Blake
In the late 1950s a string of murders that leaves behind a mass of bloodless bodies seems to be connected to a teenage girl. I’m excited for this one.
Under the Whispering Door by TJ Klune
So I haven’t read this author’s last yet despite the raves (I know). This one follows a ghost who refuses to crossover.
Sunny Makes a Splash by Jeenifer Holmes
I actually read this a couple of months back as soon as I got it. I love this MG graphic series. This one follows Sunny at her summer job at the pool and is lighter than the other books in the series.
This is Why We Lie by Gabriella Lapore
A YA murder mystery about two teens that find the body of a student on the shore of their costal town.
Beasts and Beauty by Soman Chainani
A collection of retelling of fairy tales.
As If On Cue by Marisa Kantor
A enemies to lovers YA romance.
Monsters of Rockhaven by Padraig Kenny
A MG novel from the POV of the monster.
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!
