The Week In Review #370

Posted September 26, 2021 by Stormi in Memes / 6 Comments

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.

The car saga continues! So our car has been making a horrible sound. Sounds like the back end was about to fall off and well that was kind of true! We got our mechanic to look at it and not only are the struts bad on both sides of the rearend but one of our wheel bearings was really bad and the guy was like be careful your wheel could come off!!!! So next day we had him fix that part. That alone was $125 and so there went money we saved up for propane again! The Stuts will cost us about $400 parts and labor so it’s not getting done yet. At least it doesn’t sound like it was about to fall apart anymore though. Cars suck and it’s very stressful!

The weather was really nice this week except for the two nights where it was in the 40s, I am not ready for that yet!!! I know you all are but I am not. I am holding on to warm weather as long as I can!

Caught up on Only Murders in the Building, it’s kind of silly, but dad likes it so we watch it together. New episodes comes out on Tuesday…I really hate having to wait for episodes, binging series has really spoiled me…lol.

Have a great day and happy reading!

What you might have missed on my blog

Books I have added

Nothing! 🙂

Books read last week

  • Murder at the Royal Botanic Gardens – I love this series! It had a sort of end of series feel but I hope not but if it was it ended well.
  • Delphine and the Silver Needle – This was cute story about an orphan mouse that lives.
  • Spy School Goes South – Another fun, quirky book in this series. The covers always make me chuckle.
  • Shelved Under Murder – Second book in this series and it was okay. I think it was to long between me reading the first book and I couldn’t remember the characters much.

Currently reading

  • The School Between Winter and Fairyland – It’s a decent MG fantasy, nothing that really stands out but I am enjoying it well enough. I am 56% into it on ebook. It’s an eARC from Balzer and Bray.
  • The Devil’s Workshop – I am enjoying this one but it’s probably my least favorite of this series so far. This is a physical book off my own shelf…yay…lol. I am on page 205 of 383.
  • The Case of the Gilded Fly – Not a fan of the writing style so slowly trudging through this one. It’s a physical book that I recently bought and so bummed I am not enjoying it to much but sticking with it just to see how it goes. So just reading a bit on it at night. On page 85 of 223.
  • Fatal Family Ties – Listening to this one at 1.75x speed and enjoying it. This is the latest in the Ancestry Detective series. I am almost halfway through this one.
  • The Final Twist – Latest book in the Colter Shaw series. Listening to it at 1.65x speed and I am 26% into it. I really like this series!

In the middle of SO many books…lol.

    • Thankfully, we don’t have to drive real far. I am just glad we could get the wheel bearing part fixed. Now lets pray it doesn’t get to cold to soon as we have to save back up for propane. We still have our wood heat but like to have propane backup in case it gets really cold.

  1. Sorry to hear your car troubles are back. That’s not fun. At all. It’s funny how we can get so used to binging a whole new show and then you hit that one that releases weekly again! Totally messes things up! Lol. I know eventually other streaming services are turning my favorite books into TV series, so I’ll have to find out if they release them one by one or drop them all at once so I can sign up for a trial to binge them and decide if I want to keep the subscription afterwards, lol.

    Yay for not adding to the TBR pile! That’s always nice! I mostly just added 2 books to mine since the rest were “other” books. Lol.

    Here’s my StS

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower 🙂

  2. Cars- ugh! We had the same issue a while back, a bad bearing and the guy was like good thing you came in your wheel could come off. I was like- nice.

    It got cold here and we had to turn the furnace on.

    I love binging too. Glad you guys have a show you can watch together though, that sounds kinda fun. 🙂

  3. Car stuff is so annoying. Hopefully the temps will stay warm enough for awhile to give you a chance to get the propane money saved back up. I really enjoyed the Ancestry mystery! I hope you have a great week!
