The new books on my shelves and my week in a nutshell.
The last weekend of summer. I can’t believe how quickly it went. Like every summer, I made a bunch of big plans about getting work on my house done and writing more, and like every summer, I mostly just sat on my butt and read.
What I’m reading: I’ve picked up See You Yesterday back up. I loved Today, Tonight, and Tomorrow SO much that unfortunately I don’t think she’ll ever live back up to that. I picked up Run Time and Love in the Time of Serial Killers from the library today, so I’m hoping to make some progress with those two this weekend.
What I’m watching: I’ve been rewatching the first season of The Morning Show. Mr. Flix and I have the last episode of Westworld. I haven’t been loving this season. I think the world is interesting and that it is full of great actors, but it definitely went downhill once they left the park.
New books: I have a handful of new books to share this week. So without further ado, I hope you’re all having fabulous weekends!
When We Were Friends by Holly Bourne
Ten years after the fallout of a best friendship, two women come back into each other’s lives.
How to Succeed in Witchcraft by Aislinn Brophy
“An overachieving teen witch vies for a prestigious scholarship at her elite high school.“
Mere Mortals by Erin Jade Lange
“Two teenage vampires are turned mortal and must face the greatest nightmare of all–high school.”
The Other Side of Night by Adam Hamdy
The first review I scanned the first couple of lines for said that it is best to go in blind on this one, so I didn’t re-read the synopsis. I know that it is a mystery/thriller.
Big Bad by Lily Anderson
This book makes the bad guys from Buffy into the protagonists.
Forest Hills Bootleg Society by Dave Baker and Nicole Goux
“Set in 2005, this gorgeously illustrated, funny, and honest graphic novel follows four teens who stumble into an illicit anime DVD-burning business that shakes up their conservative small town…and their friendship.”
Sometimes People Die by Simon Stephenson
“Returning to practice after a suspension for stealing opioids, a young doctor takes the only job he can find: a post as a physician at the struggling St. Luke’s Hospital in east London. Amid the maelstrom of sick patients, overworked staff and underfunded wards, a more insidious secret soon declares itself: too many patients are dying. And a murderer may be lurking in plain sight.”
My Second Impression of You by Michelle I Mason
“Sixteen-year-old Maggie is having the worst day ever. Her perfect boyfriend, Theo, breaks up with her, and then she literally breaks a leg (well, foot), preventing her from starring in the school play. When she receives a text offering her the chance to relive her best day ever – the day she and Theo met – she decides to take the leap. Everything would be better if she could figure out how to win him back. Only, there’s a catch. She doesn’t just relive the day; she gets everyone else’s perspectives, too. The information – not only about Theo, but her family, her best friend, and even Theo’s obnoxious buddy Carson (who is suddenly… nice?) – is more than she bargained for.”
The Killing Code by Ellie Marney
A teen hunts for a serial killer during WWII.
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!
