The new books on my shelves and my week in a nutshell.
Life and Blog
Life: Three more full weeks with students. I can do this. Right? Tell me I can do this because I am exhausteddddd
What I’m reading: I just started The Agathas but have to admit that this wasn’t much of a reading week for me.
What I’m watching: Hockey playoffs! Go Avs!
New books: I have a handful of pretties to share this week. So without further ado, I hope you’re all having fantastic weekends!
Girls They Write Songs About by Carlene Bauer
Following two women who meet while working at a music magazine in the late 1990s through the next several years of their lives, this is a novel about how friendships can shape us even more than romances.
Self Made Widow by Fabian Nicieza
This is the second book in the series that starts with Suburban Dicks (a book I also own but have yet to read…)
Never Coming Home by Kate Williams
The first of (I think) three books that are basically like: Fyre Festival but make it a YA thriller. “The beach read you have been dying for! When ten of America’s hottest teenage influencers are invited to an exclusive island resort, things are sure to get wild. But murder isn’t what anyone expected. Will anyone survive?”
How to Fake It in Hollywood by Ava Wilder
“A talented Hollywood starlet and a reclusive A-lister enter into a fake relationship . . . and discover that their feelings might be more than a PR stunt.”
Love & Other Great Expectations by Becky Dean
“An American girl embarks on a competitive scavenger hunt in England—and along the way, meets up with a bookish British boy who can’t help her with the clues . . . but might make the trip take some unexpected turns.”
Bridesmaids Union by Jonathan Vatner
“Brimming with family drama, and set in the ever-encroaching world of Instagram DM’s and Facebook flame wars, The Bridesmaids Union shows the power and limits of alliances we form on social media, and how to make the most of the ones we’re born into.” I’ve been a bridesmaid three times and all were fun and pleasant experiences, so I’m always shocked by crazy “bridezilla” stories.
And There He Kept Her by Joshua Moehling
This sounds a lot like that film series Don’t Breathe (which is loosely based on a true story). Two teens break into the house of what they believe to be a helpless old man looking for prescription drugs only to find out that the old man isn’t so hopeless and he has a secret buried in his basement that he will do anything to keep secret.
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!
