The Week In Review #142

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?  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.

So it’s crunch time on my trip with my dad to the Philippines. We leave on Tuesday and somewhere we lose a day, I like to call it a time warp…lol. The time zone has us getting there on Thursday though it’s a 23 hour journey…most of which is the 14 hour flight from Los Angeles to Cebu…blah. I like traveling but hate the flying time. I am going to be posting pics on some post I hope if I can get a broadband stick like I did last time for my laptop. 🙂 So if I don’t comment back much or am not around to much I am going to be gone for 21 days (19 of it will be fun in the sun, the other part is just flying days…lol) Send me prayers or positive vibes as I really hate flying and for safe trip. 🙂

I am helping Michelle spread the word about her Can You Read a Series in a Month Challenge. Click on the button to be taken to the sign up page.

Also, yesterday was the first day for signing up for COYER! YAY! This summer we are all really busy so we thought a nice easy but a little challenging type of challenge would be the best. It’s called COYER Summer Reading! Ever have those summer reading list from school, that is kind of what it’s like so come on over and check it out! 🙂

Oh and just to let you know I got a 98 in my Graphic Arts class so I say that is not to shabby…lol. 🙂

What you might have missed on my blog

Books I have added


  • The Devil’s Colony – Read the first two in this series and though they are normally about cryptozoology this one seems to be going towards man being the worst kind of monster. I am curious how this one will go.

Books read last week


  • Uncorking a Lie – Another good installment in this series involving wine. 🙂
  • The Devil’s Grin – This was an interesting start to a new series about a bacteriologist in Victorian London. It’s about a woman who disguises herself as a man to be a doctor and ends up helping solve a case. It also features Sherlock Holmes which I guess I don’t remember from when I first read the blurb…lol.

Currently reading


What might be up next

I am not sure because I will be going on my trip so it will probably be what ever I decide on when on the plane.

How was your week? What did you get?

      We have been there before it’s the flight over that gives me anxiety, that and being a hefty weighted flyer in small seats. 🙁

  1. I will probably chat with you before you leave but make sure you keep me updated and let me know that you got there safely. The flight is always the most stressful part…and packing! 😉 Have a safe trip!

    Thanks for sharing the series challenge!

      It’s the airports more than flying that freak me out. Getting from one part to the other before your flight leaves, etc.

  2. Have a safe trip for sure 🙂 and hopefully, a good time as well!
    And yes, totally yes! Summer reading lists are the best 🙂 now if I also had the vacation to go with it 😀 haha.

  3. Congrats on the awesome grade. I’ll be sending good thoughts your way during your trip. I didn’t know Devil’s Colony was part of a series. I wish books were clearer on that at times. Hope you and your Dad have a wonderful time!

      Thanks. I am a fan of the author who wrote Devil’s Colony so I knew it was part of a series as I have read the other two but it would be nice if netgalley would make publishers put series information on their selections.

  4. Have a safe trip and enjoy! The Philippines sounds awesome, can’t wait to see any pics you get. Glad to see COYER back, and congrats on your grade! Pretty awesome.

    Skitter… just no lol.

  5. I got Devil’s Colony too. I can’t wait to see where this series goes.

    Going to miss you. 21 says! That’s some vacation. Have a blast, Stormi!

      I am curious as it doesn’t sound like the others since it’s about humans. I am hoping to be around on the internet. 🙂

  6. Congrats on the Graphic Arts Class! That sounds like quite a trip, have a wonderful time! I like the idea of flying much more than the reality of it, so much trouble, rules, etc. I just joined Netgalley last week, so I’m excited, and nervous! I’ve gotten approved for 3 so far, rejected for 2, and have 5 more undecided, all in different months for the most part, so I will not let myself look at any more until I have done the three I’ve got, or so I’m telling myself now1
