Weekly Rewind 7.16.22

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: So I’ve somehow ended up taking a two month break. Between the end of the school year, which is always crazy, and just needing a breather, time just got away from me. I just got back from a trip down to North Carolina where I spent a few days with my sister, just the two of us. It had been going on three years since I had last seen her, so it was an awesome time. I unfortunately got sick the last day, though, and had to drive home for hoooours feeling like shit. I’ve spent the last three days in bed and am just starting to feel slightly better. 

Also, my beloved Colorado Avalanche won the Stanley Cup (I know it’s been a few weeks, but YAY)!

What I’m reading: I’m in the middle of a handful of books (per usual): Carrie Soto is Back, Accomplished, and rereading Anna and the French Kiss (for the billionth time). 

What I’m watching: I’m about halfway through HBO’s version of The Staircase, and am currently (like right now) finally watching the first season of The Sinner. I’m enjoying both.

New Books: I’m obviously not going to go back to every book I would have shared, but I do have a few from past weeks I’m going to include. So without further ado, I hope you’re having fabulous weekends! 

For Review

Carrie Soto is Back by Taylor Jenkins Reid

A woman returns to tennis after her record is broken. I’m in this right now and am enjoying it. 

When We Were Bright and Beautiful by Jillian Medoff

An upper class family rallies around the son who is a junior at Princeton after his ex-girlfriend accuses him of rape, something they are sure he didn’t do. 

Long Story Short by Serena Kaylor

A girl who has been homeschooled her whole life is ecstatic to get into Oxford, her parents not so much. They agree to let her go if she can prove her social adeptness by going to summer camp.

The Family Remains by Lisa Jewell

So this apparently a sequel to The Family Upstairs, which I haven’t read. Anybody read the first book? Worth it?

The Cake Eater by Allyson Dahlin

Marie Antoinette in the year 3074. Interesting premise.

The Book Eaters by Sunyi Dean 

“Out on the Yorkshire Moors lives a secret line of people for whom books are food, and who retain all of a book’s content after eating it. To them, spy novels are a peppery snack; romance novels are sweet and delicious. Eating a map can help them remember destinations, and children, when they misbehave, are forced to eat dry, musty pages from dictionaries.” I mean.

How to Kill Your Family by Bella Mackie

“When Grace Bernard discovers her absentee millionaire father has rejected her dying mother’s pleas for help, she vows revenge and coldly sets out to get her retribution—by killing them all, one by one.” I’m excited for this one. 

My Imaginary Mary by Ashton, Hand, and Meadows

The trio tackle retelling the story of Mary Shelley.

Accomplished by Amanda Quain

Modern P&P from the POV of Georgina Darcy, who is in trouble at her boarding school. 

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!
