The Week In Review #110

Posted October 23, 2016 by Stormi in Memes / 21 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? ย 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 was just a normal average type of week. Not much happened. I ย participated in the 24 hr. read-a-thonย and I know I wouldn’t make the whole things but I always try my best. So that is why there are so many things read this week…lol. All but two were done on Saturday. ๐Ÿ™‚ Now I am in zombie mode. ๐Ÿ™‚

Beginning of the week it was warm enough to turn the air back on, then it came a thunderstorm and back to cold enough to turn it off and the mornings are freezing! ๐Ÿ™ I hate cold mornings. ๐Ÿ™ Warms up okay but it makes me not want to get out from under warm blankets when the mornings are cold…lol.

DNFed:

And the trees crept in

I am disappointed but I just couldn’t finish this one. It was to confusing and it just drug on and I couldn’t get into it. I was told it would all make sense at the end but I just couldn’t make it to the end. ๐Ÿ™ I did get about half way.

  1. Ooh nice new reads! Lots of new to me ones! Sad to hear you couldn’t finish And The Trees Crept In. It did get a little weird even for me and confusing. The end did explain things and make a kind of sense. I still had questions of course, but then I usually do anyway! LOL! Hope you enjoy all your new reads and the week ahead!

    Here’s my STS

    Have a GREAT day!

  2. The Deadwood series is so fun. I need to write my reviews. Glad you got the package from Richard and Andrea. I hope you enjoy Onyx as much as I did. I’m waiting for the seventh book and can’t wait. Really getting into things and revealing so much. Fantastic series!
    I want Toyna Kappes book too!

    • Stormi

      Heard good things about that series so when I find one on sale I grab it up, I think I have the first and third now so need the second one then I might get started on them. ๐Ÿ™‚ I have always been a bit curious asbout Onyx Web so I can’t wait to give it a try. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Stormi

      Yeah, I like what I have read from Sookie Stackhouse so I have been curious about Aurora for a while. Then I seen the show and got hooked and when I seen book one on sale, it was like give me. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I want that Dresden graphic novel!! *drools* And poop that Unlucky Charm is no longer free. It’s only 99ยข, but I need to save all my gift card money for Christmas. Gah! I said the C word! Oh! And seeing your cozies, I just read one I think you’d enjoy. Death by Diploma by Kelley Kaye. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Stormi

      It was good! I haven’t read all the books yet so it would have something in there like *from such and such book, but I didn’t feel confused so I liked that. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. What a wonderful prize pack. I’m about half through Witches but just took a break to take the pups to the park. Hope to finish it before The Walking Dead tonight. We’ve had a busy weekend so far. I’m sorry you didn’t enjoy When the Trees Crept In. I’ll have to see if my library will order it so I don’t risk wasting good book money. I really want to read Bear and the Nightingale. Hope you have a great week and I’ll be getting that email to you soon!

    • Stormi

      Hope you are enjoying Witches! I would so get And the Trees Crept in from the library and see if you like it first before buying. ๐Ÿ™‚ You never know you might like it’s weirdness more than me. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. We’ve had the cold mornings here too, and last night it got nippy! Fall has arrived. Good job on the readathon, I’ve never done it I think my eyes would bug out. lol Cat Got Your Diamonds looks fun, and ooh Amateurs!

  6. So many new books Stormi! You’re going to keep busy. At least you participated in the read-a-thon. I’ve never done anything like that and am not sure I’d be able to do it!

    Our mornings here are still cool but it’s getting warmer during the day as summer approaches!

  7. Ghost Detective sounds good and wow Stormi, that giveaway win is amazing! Yes our air kicked on a little last week, but mornings are cold! Hope school is going well. Have a great week!

  8. You had an amazing reading week – the read-a-thon, I presume? It’s on my bucket list, as I’d love to take part in one, but right now I simply don’t have the time… I know what you mean about the mornings – we are still experiencing some amazingly sunny, mild weather this autumn, but the nights are definitely cooler and the early mornings are cold. I’ve been driving Himself to work at stupid o’clock (4-5 am) and it’s nippy! Have a great reading week – I love the look of ‘Witches’…

  9. I hope you had fun with the readathon, that’s great you got so many books read! I also got cat Got your Diamonds and Pressed to Death from netgalley, they both sound good. Have a great week!
