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.
I might have been one of the few out there that didn’t care much about the eclipses and I was very upset that my first day of class got cut short or was basically nonexistent as he let us out after only about 12 minutes for a party on The Quad. Um, who cared I wanted to do photoshop, I had a ride who dropped me off! 🙁 I had to hurry and call my dad so thankfully he was going shopping in town and didn’t go straight home.
So I got those shots in my knees and they didn’t hurt as much as I thought they would but I am not sure if they are doing much good. At first I thought they were but now I am not sure cause my left knee still hurts a lot. I think I am just destined for bad knees and the only thing to do is try and lose this weight. It did make me feel pretty loopy the first day as I got a double shot (one in each knee) and he said it would make my sugar spike as well as my blood pressure so that wasn’t much fun…lol.
Despite no class on Monday I did enjoy my Wednesday class as we messed around with paintbrushes and changing a picture to make it look better without looking like it was photoshoped. 🙂
Please send some possie vibes this way as my dad is going to have hernia surgery on Tuesday and that is going to be a long day as we have to be there at 6 am and the surgery doesn’t start till 8 am. Depending on how he is feeling the next day I may have to miss class to help him around the house as he is almost 70 so I don’t know how this will affect him. He won’t be able to lift hardly anything for like 6 weeks…blah. Men are kind of wimpy anyway. 😉 🙂

Books I have added
Netgalley/Edelweiss (The 2018 edition!)
- Devils Unto Dust – For someone who doesn’t read a lot of zombie types here I go…now it doesn’t say zombie but ‘Infected people—shakes—attacked the living and created havoc and destruction’, sounds sort of like zombies…if not I am cool with that but I want to not be like ewww zombies…lol.
- Dread Nation – So I seen this on Barb’s Can’t Wait Wednesdays post and I wanted it. I am not a huge zombie fan but it’s set in the civil war time with undead soldiers sort of messing up the whole war thing. It’s really turned things upside down and just sounds fun. 🙂
- A Treacherous Curse – The third book in the Veronica Speedwell series and I can’t wait to read it!
- What Doesn’t Kill You – Willa thought being a PI would be better than being a cop but she is about to find out different. Sounds like a fun mystery.
I can’t believe these all come out in 2018!!
Books read last week
- Cheerleading Can Be Murder – This was okay but I was expecting MURDER…lol. My friend says I took the words to literal but it’s horror and it says murder what am I suppose to think. 🙂 (Kindle Freebie)
- A Wee Homicide in the Hotel – The third book in the Scotshop mysteries and I enjoyed it though it wasn’t my favorite. (Audio)
- The Wrong Girl – It just fell flat and I wasn’t that impressed. 🙁 (Audio)
- Margaritas, Marzipan and Murder – Cape Bay Cafe mystery #3 and it was a fun short mystery just like the other two. (Audio)
- The Devils You Know – Just freaking weird and strange but I liked it…lol. Don’t find a lot of good YA horror and so I really liked this one. (Review ARC)
This week was Bout of Book 20 and so I went the audio route so I could get in more reads. 🙂
- Good Me, Bad Me – The writing style is a bit different so I am struggling with it but I really like the premise so I am sticking it out.
- The Girls in the Water – I had put this one aside to read The Devils You Know cause I just had too…lol.
- Becoming Dragon – Thought it was about time I dig into Dragon Point and it gives me something different than mysteries. 🙂
On the first of September I will be starting Halloween Bingo from my Booklikes blog and so I might have to put these books on hold for ones that fit my bingo card…lol. I have a pretty cool list though I probably won’t get to them all but I have two months as it doesn’t end till Oct. 31st. If you have a booklikes blog you should check it out!
What might be up next
