The new books on my shelves and my week in a nutshell.
Life and Blog
Life: Settling into the rhythm of the school year. Already feeling brutally exhausted but am enjoying getting to know my students.
What I’m reading: I’m currently reading Apples Never Fall and am loving it. It’s one that I can’t wait to get back to when I’ve put it down, which is exactly what I needed because I’ve been slumping big time these last couple of weeks.
What I’m watching: I’m on the last season of Elementary and am definitely on the lookout for what I should pick up next. It’s mostly background noise, but I would prefer something that has multiple seasons already out. Taking suggestions, please!
New books: I have a small pile of pretties to share this week. I am once again on my phone so am going to skip linking. So without further ado, I hope you’re all having fabulous weekends!
Little Thieves by Margaret Owen
Per the synopsis: “Margaret Owen, author of The Merciful Crow series, crafts a delightfully irreverent retelling of “The Goose Girl” about stolen lives, thorny truths, and the wicked girls at the heart of both.” That cover! I don’t read a lot of retellings or fantasy, but I just couldn’t resist that cover.
Party Crasher by Sophie Kinsella
I will always have fond memories this author’s work, even if I don’t always get to her latest books. This one follows a woman who is crashing the last hurrah party at her childhood home.
No Words by Meg Cabot
Ditto what I said above. I love Meg Cabot but haven’t read the first two books in this series yet, despite owning them. This one follows an author who has been invited to a book festival on the FL Keys island in which her nemesis happens to live.
A Line to Kill by Anthony Horowitz
The third book in the Hawthorne/Horowitz series, which is a meta-mystery series in which the author acts as a character in the books. I really enjoyed the first two books and am looking forward to this one.
Fan Fiction by Brent Spiner
The dude who played Data on Star Trek writes an autobiographical novel about the relationship between fans and the stars of the beloved franchise.
Bad Girls Never Say Die by Jennifer Mathieu
A gender-flipped reimagining of The Outsiders.
No One Will Miss Her by Kat Rosenfeld
The body of the town “pariah” is found and seems to have a strange connection to a wealthy influencer.
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!
