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.
Well this was a relatively uneventful week except for Wednesday being what it was and since I don’t like to get real political I will just say #notmypresident (this slogan worked for the democrats for 4 years so guess it works for me now…lol) and hope these four years go quickly and leave it at that. Moving on to better topics.
Didn’t watch much that was new this week but did watch a sci-fi movie called Skyline (I think), it was something dad was more into than me but it was okay.
The weather this week has been kind of up and down but not real bad but we have rain that started last night and for most of the day today, so that always makes it feel colder even if it’s not horrible cold temp wise. I hate drafty houses! We even have a chance at a wintery mix during the week which I am not thrilled about at all, but oh well, the bright side of things is we have gained about a half hour of daylight and it’s so lovely! 🙂

Books I have added
- Across the Pond – I am trying to read more MG contemporaries and I enjoyed this authors book from last year called A Field Guide to Getting Lost. So thought I would try her newest one, it’s set in Scotland so it can’t be to bad, right? 🙂
- The Hedgehog of Oz – One of my anticipated reads! So excited to have gotten an ARC for this one! Nothing like a cute hedgehog book, right? 🙂 Only a bit disappointed there are no illustrations in it but some grass on the chapter breaks. 🙁
Books read last week
- City of the Plague God – I thought this was okay but felt it lacked a bit of something to make it real good.
- A Curious Incident – I really enjoyed this one! Probably my favorite of the series so far!
Series put on hold
- The Invisible Library Series – Both Barb and I were just not really feeling this one. I decided that maybe it’s not a bingeable series for us. We still want to try it but we are putting it on hold and will be starting a new series next month, it might surprise you what we picked. 🙂
- Poldark – Slowly making my way though it but I do like it. I am just trying to get through as many January review books as I can, so it gets pushed to the side. I am 50% into it though so making progress. 🙂
- Amari and the Night Brothers – Just started it so around 10% but it has been interesting so far.
- The Gulp – I must make time for this as I want it done by the end of January. I am still on the third story and there are five so I need to get cracking.
- One Poison Pie – This is my current audiobook that I should be able to finish soon as it is a short one. I have 5 hours left and I really just started so probably listened to about an hour of it. It’s okay, probably not going to be a favorite from this author although it could grow on me as the series progresses.
