The Week In Review #334

Posted January 10, 2021 by Stormi in Memes / 15 Comments

The 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.

I am so ready for winter to be over. It’s been cold and rain/snowy and blah. Good thing is in a few days highs could hit in the 50s so I will take them! ๐Ÿ™‚

Not a lot to report here I am a boring, somewhat antisocial person so not much happened this week.

What you might have missed on my blog

Books I have added

Netgalley

I didn’t get anything last week so it must have been in preparation for this week!!! I swear it was request approval week and they gained up on me. ๐Ÿ™‚

ย 

  • The Last Fallen Star – Debut about an adopted Korean-American girl who discovers her heritage and her magic on a perilous journey to save her witch clan family. Pretty much all I know about it but I usually like Rick Riordan Presents books.
  • Journey Beyond the Burrow – To survive in the deep woods, a mouse needs to know a thing or two. Thatโ€™s why Tobin knows the Rules of Rodentia like the back of his paw. Trust scent before sight. Avoid predictable paths. Always do whatโ€™s best for the Great Burrow. Mouse adventure here I come!! ๐Ÿ™‚
  • Every Last Fear – An anticipated debut psychological thrillers, a family made infamous by a true crime documentary is found dead, leaving their surviving son to uncover the truth about their final days. Sounds really cool!
  • Your Turn to Suffer by Tim Waggoner – Lorelei Palumbo is harassed by a sinister group calling themselves The Cabal. They accuse her of having committed unspeakable crimes in the past, and now she must pay. That is all I really need to know. Out of three books I have read by him I have enjoyed two so hopefully this will be another!
  • Children of Chicago – This horrifying retelling of the Pied Piper fairytale set in present-day Chicago is an edge of your seat, chills up the spine, thrill ride.
  • The Jane Austen Investigates – Itโ€™s 1789 and a young Jane Austen turns detective as she seeks to solve the mysterious happenings at Southmoor Abbey. Sounds super fun!

Books read last week

ย 

  • Alone – I just wasn’t a huge fan of this one, which is a bummer because I wanted to love it!
  • Five Total Strangers – This was enjoyable but had some flaws.

Currently reading

ย ย 

  • An Unexpected Peril – I thought I would get it finished but had a busy Saturday and so didn’t have time. I am 83% into and will finish it today!! Loving it!
  • The Nightmare Thief – I had put this one on the back burner to read the above ones instead, so now going to try this one again in hopes it picks up some.
  • Poldark – Yep, started the tv series and ended up reading the book instead…lol. Decided to read before I watch more! ๐Ÿ™‚ I said I wanted to read more classics so here is my first one of the year. First published in 1945.
  • Brother – The January pick for a horror book club on facebook I am in. Just getting started so no opinion yet.

What might be up next

  1. Boring would be a nice change of pace lol ๐Ÿ™‚ I know this weather sucks. We go snow today and the only reason that I was semi excited was to show Dante. Other than that, I was like, “okay, go away now.”

    Have a great week!

  2. We have snow here but some of it melted- the sun came out yesterday but it’s been cold! Ack is winter over yet???

    Ooh you read Five Total strangers. I kind of agree with that assessment. I didn’t understand some of the decisions that were made, even though I liked the cold snowy setting.

    The Raybourn book looks good.
