Weekly Rewind 10.2.21

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: 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!

For Review 

 

Tenderness by Alison MacLeod

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. 

All of Us Villains by Amanda Foody

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. 

The Year I Stopped Trying by Katie Heaney

Hailed as Booksmart meets Perks of Being a Wallflower, which is all I really needed to know. 

Hello, Transcriber by Hannah Morrissey

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. 

You’ll Be the Death of Me by Karen McManus

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!

  1. Same here with the weather and I’m loving it. So nice during the day- we’ve had mostly 70’s- but cooler at night. I hope it sticks around. 🙂

    I can’t wait for the new McManus! 🙂
