The Week In Review #106

Posted September 25, 2016 by Stormi in Memes / 27 Comments

BMR,OHMy (1)The Week in Review is where I combine Stacking the Shelves, The Sunday Post and It’s Monday! What are you reading? Β If you have never joined in on these meme’s you can check them out by clicking on the meme and it will take you to the host blog.

This week I learned that I need to check my school email before leaving for class. My English teacher was sick and there was no class on Monday, I so could have slept in! Instead, I was stuck at the college till my next class which was in the afternoon as I didn’t have the extra gas money to go back home and then come back later. Decided I better check it on Wed. and sure enough she was still sick and no class so I got to play around on my blog can catch up some before my afternoon class…lol.

Binged a bit on Longmire season 5 on Netflix since it came out on Friday. I didn’t get to finish it but only have four episodes left so hoping to finish today after church! πŸ™‚ Seen some rumors that this might be the last season and that is just sad, but I am hoping for another season! πŸ™‚

Fall started out here in the 90’s and heat indexes near 100, I don’t think fall got the memo! πŸ™‚ Though next week is suppose to be more seasonal so I guess time will tell. So other than this I don’t have much to report. πŸ™‚

What you might have missed on my blog

Books I have added

Netgalley

death-at-first-sightΒ twelve-days-of-christmasΒ devil-crept-in

  • Death at First Sight is a cozy for blog tour.
  • Twelve Days of Christmas is for the Ho Ho Ho readathon and by one of my favorite authors.
  • The Devil Crept In is from a new to me author but it sure sounds pretty creepy and good! πŸ™‚

Audiobook for Review

20160923_1544101

  • United!!! So excited to finally get this so I can see how this trilogy will end. πŸ™‚
  • Memory Closet is a mystery by a new to me author
  • The Sinner!!!! Excited about this one too as I love this series!!

Running behind today so I didn’t have time to list any freebies and the ones I bought I will list next week! πŸ™‚

Books read last week

chillsΒ strange-historyΒ meow-if-its-murder

  • Chills was really good, intense and different. Not for the faint of heart!
  • Strange History itΒ was just plain fun and made me laugh a lot.
  • Meow if it’s Murder was a good first book in a series. Has a really smart crime solving cat in it who helps Nora. πŸ™‚

Currently reading

DevourΒ The Book Club MurdersΒ underland

  • I am pretty close to putting Devour on the back Β burner as it’s just not really that great and kind of boring for a creature feature book. πŸ™
  • Enjoying The Book Club Murders so far!
  • Underland is okay it’s about the gods bringing back the Olympic games but they are a bit more deadly and the MC got kidnapped and forced to play in them. Monsters and immortals are real in the Underlands! πŸ™‚

  1. Oh no! You are going to get to The Call before me. πŸ™‚ I can’t wait for you to read And the Trees Crept In.

    I watched the first two episodes of Once Upon a Time Again and remember why I loved it so much. I wanted to just watch the pilot but couldn’t stop at just one. Moving on to something else because I have a new feature I want to do next year and it wont work if I don’t start Binge watching stuff. lol

    Have a great week, Stormi! Make sure to check your email. Sleeping in is important and must not be missed! Happy Reading! ox

    • Stormi

      Well, I am hoping to get to The Calling anyway. I want to review it for October so trying to get some spooky ones done for that…lol.

  2. How frustrating about your class! I’d have been stuck too because I hate all the back and forth. I bet you’ll always remember to check your email now though! We’re in the same boat about the weather not understanding that it’s fall. The only reason it even slightly feels like it is that it’s gotten cooler at night but the days are still in the 90s. Death at First Sight sounds good. I’m reading a cozy right now after awhile off and I forgot how much I enjoy them. Have a great week!

    • Stormi

      Yep, lesson learned…lol. Our nights haven’t gotten too much cooler as last night was 67 and that is about normal though in the house it felt hotter. It’s supposed to rain today and make it cooler but so far all we have gotten is some sprinkles…lol.

  3. Death at First Sight looks like something I would enjoy and I’m hoping my library gets And The Trees Crept In. I want to read a physical copy and I’d have to order it because the bookstore here doesn’t have it. Lineage looks cool too – you enabler!! We are supposed to have 4 days of 73 degree temps after tomorrow. I’m so excited. Have a great week!

    • Stormi

      Every time I see a dog on a cover I think about you…lol. I am like Barb would want this. πŸ™‚ I have a physical copy too! I learned from my last experience with this author to go with a print copy! πŸ™‚

      Paybacks for The Devil Crept In. We just enable each other. πŸ™‚

  4. I have Underland to read too – hope you enjoy it! Oh and I got United in the mail this week πŸ™‚ I just left Tantor mail!!! Of course, I’m so behind who knows when I’ll manage to read it. Hopefully soon as I really enoyed the first t two books. Sorry about being stuck on campus -they don’t have computers where you could blog while you wait? I used to go up to the campus by 8am because I tutored and had classes and then would have dead periods, so I hung on the computers. Sometimes doing great work, sometimes doing whatevwe I wanted πŸ™‚

    Hope you have a great week!

    • Stormi

      Underland hasn’t been too bad but I am not wowed by it. I can’t wait to get to United and I have things ahead of it too as I am really behind but I am hoping to fit it in soon. πŸ™‚

      I do go to the computer lab, but I could have been at home and that is what is frustrating..could have slept in, etc…lol. I go to the computer lab and do my computer homework and I am all caught up and actually ahead in that class. πŸ™‚

  5. I will listening to Twelve Days of Christmas for HoHoHo too. LOL, lesson learned about checking email. Of course now it won’t happen again. You picked up some great books this week! Enjoy Stormi πŸ™‚

    • Stormi

      Oh I bet the audio will be good! πŸ™‚ Yeah, your right it probably won’t happen again but I am checking that email anyway…lol.

  6. Oh I always loved it when a class was canceled. Didn’t happen nearly enough lol. Always nice to have that extra time.

    You guys are still pretty warm over there, hope it cools off soon. We’re slowly cooling off here…

    I’m seriously thinking of trying Chills.

    • Stormi

      Yeah, it never happens enough. Though now we are a week behind so I am hoping that means she will just cut out a paper…lol. πŸ™‚

      We had some rain last night and it cooled it down a little which is good. πŸ™‚

    • Stormi

      Me too! Yeah, I used time to read and do some blogging in the computer lab…lol. Still would have preferred sleep. πŸ™‚

  7. Some creepy books there this week Stormi.

    Ugh, how annoying re your instructor, but I guess good now you know to check beforehand and save yourself the trip. Plus time off to do bloggy stuff!

    Enjoy the rest of Longmire!

  8. Wish we’d had email back when I was going to college. I wasted many trips getting there and no class. And it wasn’t fun in the winter. LOL
    I’m going to catch up on Longmire too. There are several new series I want to start checking out too. Sorry Devour isn’t doing anything for you. I’m on the fence about it now.

    • Stormi

      Yeah, the first time I went to college I don’t remember the wonders of email but it’s pretty nice now if I can just remember to check it! πŸ™‚

      Longmire was good but not sure if it was my favorite season. I heard rumors they might not make a season 6 but they just can’t leave it how they did…it makes me think there will be a new season and I really hope so!! πŸ™‚

    • Stormi

      Yeah, someone else reviewed it and said it wasn’t very good and that it wasn’t thrilling nor campy like most creature features are and she is right as so far it’s just boring…I keep waiting for something to get devoured!! LOL. I am only about 12% in so it could get better but I just don’t have patience for slow starts in my creature features. πŸ™‚

  9. Glad to see you had a good week. It doesn’t suck that you were at class only to find out it was canceled. Glad you were able to just sleep in on Wednesday. Fall hasn’t gotten the memo for me either. It wasn’t in the 90’s, but the heat indexes were. The temps have dropped now though. I don’t think I have a single day in the forecast over 80, which is nice. I might even be able to sleep with the windows open a few nights. πŸ™‚

  10. I was constantly checking my school email when I was a student. I had to, in the office I worked in. I would hate to show up to a class that had been cancelled! Although, I need to start reading my school (work) email nowadays before I leave on Monday mornings. All these meetings are scheduled for 7:45 and then the night before are getting cancelled, too. Makes me kinda cranky.
