The new books on my shelves and my week in a nutshell.
Life and Blog
Life: Trucking along. The weather has been perfect here the past couple of days. Cool — almost cold at night — and then sunny and high 60s during the day. I love this time of year. School is going well. My classes are in full swing, and I’m enjoying my students.
What I’m reading: I actually didn’t get around to finishing Apples Never Fall last weekend and barely read it all week, but I am enjoying the book and am hoping to get through the last 30% this weekend. I also started The Night She Disappeared, which pulled me in right away, and the MG graphic novel Big Apple Diaries, which I’m loving.
What I’m watching: Not a whole lot. I haven’t watched this week’s AHS but am caught up beyond that. It’s been an okay season, but not as good as the first few.
New books: I have a handful of pretties to share with you this week. So without further ado, I hope you’re all having fabulous weekends!
Based on the censorship of the novel Lady Chatterley’s Lover from Fitzgerald’s knowledge that it would be censored to Jackie Kennedy’s interest in the novel. I remember reading LCL back in my early 20s in college and have fond memories of that time in my life.
The top ruling families of an imaginary city have long had a fight to the death Hunger Games style tournament to see which one will rule. This year is different, however, because the secret of the tournament has been published and tourists have descended on the event to watch it unfold. I don’t read a lot of fantasy, but I’m excited for this one.
Hailed as Booksmart meets Perks of Being a Wallflower, which is all I really needed to know.
A police transcriber becomes obsessed with a case that she is using for inspiration for the novel she believes will be a ticket out of her crime-ridden city.
Ferris Bueller with death! Love it.
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!
