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 think my warm weather is finally gone! *cries* It was nice up till Wednesday then went from 85 to 66 the next day! Now it looks like the forecast has just mostly in the 60’s the rest of the month with chilly lows (which is the part I hate the most). I am bummed. Now the countdown till more daylight and warmer weather begins. 🙂
I watched A Babysitter’s Guide to Monster Hunting and it was cute, they did change things but for the most party it was kind of like the book. They changed the MC from a white redhead with curly hair who was I believe in Jr. High, to a black girl in High School. Her best friend in the book is a girl and in the movie was a boy that was strange…lol. I like the guy they picked for Victor! And I would never have guess the guy playing the creepy bad guy was the guy who played Draco on HP…lol. It kind of leaves it open for another movie so I hope so! I would love to see a movie about the Spider Queen!
Have a great week and happy reading!

Books I have added
Books read last week
- Sing Like No One’s Listening – Finally got this one finished. It was okay, had it’s good parts and irritating parts but it wa a YA contemporary and that seems to be the way they are for me…lol. About a girl who gets into a music/dance academy but can’t sing (it’s a psychological thing because of the death of her mother and stress).
- The Nesting – A gothic horror, slow burn and atmospheric and so yet wasn’t a huge fan. Slow being one of the problems…lol. The other was I didn’t really like the MC and felt there wasn’t really a whole lot happening but I wanted to see how it ended anyway…lol.
- Rise of Zombert – A decent kids book with a bit of morbid illustrations I wasn’t real keen on…lol. (The cat had a dead squirrel in his mouth! I so didn’t need to see that!) It’s about a mangy looking cat with yellow eyes who likes to eat the heads of small animals so the MC’s friend thinks he is a zombie…lol. It freaking left me with a cliffhanger too! Kids books shouldn’t do that! I really thought my eARC was messed up but seen others talk about it on goodreads so I figured that was just how it ended.
- Premeditated Myrtle – This was a cute middle grade mystery about a young girl who thinks her neighbor was murdered and sets out to prove it. 8 hrs and 12 minutes listened at 1.5x.
- Mission to Monster Island – Such a fun middle grade series! I do hope they continue to make movies from these books! 6 hrs and 15 minutes at 1.75x
- These Violent Delights – This will be on my post for a bit, unless it picks up! Part of it is interesting the other part very slow moving. I am about 200 pages out of 435 and only really read it a bit at night before bed.
- The Creak on the Stairs – Slow going right now but I hope it picks up as it’s a tour book and I need to get it read but right now I really don’t want too! It’s an Icelandic crime novel and was really hoping to like it!
- Wolf Hunt – Just started this one so only like 4% into it but already more interesting that the above two!
- The Devil and the Dark Water – It’s very confusing. 🙁 Lots of characters and I will admit it’s the first time in a while I have had a harder time following the audiobook. It’s also 17hrs!!! Gah!
