The Week In Review #15

Posted December 13, 2014 by Stormi in Memes / 10 Comments

Week ReviewThe 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.

So I told everyone that my job was coming to an end because I thought it was, but apparently I am getting called back on Jan. 12th. That didn’t happen last year so maybe they like me, they really like me..LOL. Even though I am getting called back it’s still a seasonal job which means they can lay me back off at any time if they are not busy enough to have the seasonal staff there. ย But I will take it! ๐Ÿ™‚

So sort of was in a reading slump or it was just the books I picked to read but I ended up not finishing Wicked Ways by Lisa Jackson and then seen a lot of other reviewers who didn’t like the book either, so made me feel better. I don’t think I have ย give up on it but it just wasn’t hitting the spot so will try it one more time before an official DNF. ๐Ÿ™‚ ย That being said I think I have just grabbed up the slow movers this week as Luck Uglies started out pretty slow but has picked up a bit..but only 45% in and I should be farther..lol.

Other than that not much going on around here. ๐Ÿ™‚

Well I did it again, I joined another challenge. I think I will only sign up for another challenge if it’s an audio one..I need one of those. ๐Ÿ™‚

A-Z author reading challenge

Books I have added

ย Netgalley *hangs head*

criminalconfectionsย touredtodeath

Wasn’t going to get this one then I got curious. I wasn’t a huge fan of Cruel Beauty but thought maybe I might like this one. Got to try an author at least twice right. ๐Ÿ™‚

When will I learn that I can’t just go browse that I always end up with something.

Audio review books

The accidental demon slayerย stolensixpenceย Boydrewmonstersย murdermysterysuiteย circle of influence

 

One of those books my look familiar from last week as I got the ebook version of The Accidental Demonslayer and then found it on audiobook jukebox to review and thought it might be fun on audio. ๐Ÿ™‚

ย Kindle .99 buys

cutlassย A Vampire Christmas Carol

 

Michelle from Because reading keeps gushing about Cutlass and since it was only .99 I had to grab it and I seen A Vampire Christmas Carol on a couple blogs and they both liked it so snatched it up too. ๐Ÿ™‚

This one is no longer free but still cheap at .99! ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. YAY for being called back, employment is good. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I also have Murder at the Book Group and Criminal Confection. Petticoat Detective and Mistletoe Magic look good too.

    Have a good week and happy reading!

  2. YAY for being called back for work in January, Stormi! I am pretty sure they like you a lot – how in the world could they not?

    Nice haul this week, even if you hang your head because of your eARCs… there has to be a reason why Edelweiss and Netgalley accept your requests ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I hope you’ll enjoy all your new books, and that you’re enjoying your weekend.

  3. OOOoh nice! Feeling the envy over Crimson Bound! I don’t think EW likes me. My request is still “pending”. I had a request once be “pending” for 2 months before they finally rejected me. Sigh…

    Anyway, hope you enjoy all your awesome new read and thanks for visiting my STS!

    • I’m with Jessica–jealous over Crimson Bound. I like Cruel Beauty. The ending was weird, but I’m to chalk it up to the fact I was listening to it and maybe if I had read it and could go back and re-read it would make more sense. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Congratulations on being able to be recalled at your job!

  4. I finished a book I was reading and now have no idea what to read next. I guess that’s not a slump, just me being indecisive. LOL. Murder in the Mystery Suite looks good. And the cover of Crimson Bound is interesting.

  5. Congrats on the call back! Yay! I was good this week and did not get anything from NetGalley! Baby steps, baby steps. lol I don’t even go to Edelweiss. I have an account, but found it hard to navigate and haven’t been back. Of course, that was like 2 yrs ago. It may be easier now. Hope you enjoy A Vampire’s Christmas Carol! ๐Ÿ˜€

  6. Congrats on the job call back! Great news! I’ve had the Accidental Demon Slayer in my tbr pile for a long time. I will be interested in what you think.
