The Week in Review is where I combine Stacking the Shelves, The Sunday Post and It’s Monday! What are you reading? 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 participated in the 24 hr. read-a-thon 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. 🙂 Now I am in zombie mode. 🙂
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! 🙁 I hate cold mornings. 🙁 Warms up okay but it makes me not want to get out from under warm blankets when the mornings are cold…lol.

Books read last week
- Little Boy Blue – One of my favorite British crime drama type novels nad the ending…was like OMG!
- Witches – It was interesting, kind of a paranormal/time-travel/romance at times…really hard to pend down a genre. 🙂
- Dresden Files: Wild Card – Graphic novel with my favorite characters!
- Chillz Hillz: Bad Babysitter – MG book kind of like goosebumps, it was fun.
- Twilight Zone: The Shadow – What happens when the character The Shadow becomes a real person but nobody believes he is really the character that is written…dom dom dom…the twilight zone. 🙂
- Betting Off Dead – Book two in the Spies and Spells mystery series and it was a lot of fun.
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. 🙁 I did get about half way.
