The Week In Review #405

Posted May 29, 2022 by Stormi in Misc. / 8 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.

Rain, rain go away and stay away! 🙂

Not much happened this week except we got a new (used) car as we just couldn’t figure out why the other one kept dying especially at stoplights…ugh.  It’s a 2011 Dodge Journey and way to fancy for my liking. It has a push button start!

Hopefully it last us a while!! *fingerscrossed*

Have a great week and happy reading!

What you might have missed on my blog

Books I have added

Netgalley

  • Because I Could Not Stop for Death – Mystery involving Emily Dickenson and her housemaid as sleuths! Also one of my favorite authors so hope I do have to high of expectations for this one but I can’t wait to read it!!

Books read last week

I know it looks like a lot but I listened to everything on audiobook and at least three where less that 4 hours on audio while the a lot of the others were only like 6 to 8 hours on audio and I do listen a range of 1.75 to 2x speed.

  • Moonlight Road – The Tenth book in the Virgin River series, it was enjoyable but slightly annoying at times.
  • The Bookwanderers – It was a decent start to a series but not exactly what I was expecting.
  • How to Twist a Dragon’s Tale – The 5th book and always super cute and best on audiobook because of David Tennant!
  • Encyclopedia Brown #3 – Just a fun nostaglia read.
  • Encyclopedia Brown #4 – Super fun!
  • The Remarkable Journey of Coyote Sunrise – I good contemporary middle grade and I an see why people enjoy it so much I am just not a huge contemporary reader.
  • The Ruins – A decent horror book about stupid people. 🙂
  • Panda-monium –  The 4th book in the funjungle series and I really enjoy it.
  • This Side of Murder – First in the Verity Kent series and it was very good!!

Currently reading

  • Charlie Thorne – I let this one slide this week because of all the audiobooks so I am still about halfway through it and must work on it this coming week.
  • Gone with the Wind – I am getting closer! Less than seven hours left on audiobook.
  • A Sea in Winter – I almost finished this one. It’s a middle grade contemporary and it’s okay.

What might be up next

  1. Congrats on your car! I like it. And it’s so funny, my car is a 2020 and it doesn’t even has a push start button, lol. You are the second person I saw this week reading The Ruins, which is weird because that’s a pretty old book. Hope you have a good week!

    • Interesting, she might be part of the horror book club from the facebook group TBR and Beyond. They have different genre clubs and this month we read The Ruins. 🙂

  2. We had a day of rain ourselves, though I wouldn’t have minded more! Anything to take the edge off this heat! I am definitely not stepping foot outside tomorrow. Yeah, the push buttons on new cars takes getting used to. I got one last year and it took a bit to get used to it all. Like where do I even put my keys so I don’t forget them? I had expected a few more bells and whistles to my car at the time since it was pretty top of the line but there were features I was lacking that I noticed my mom’s car had that I really liked and was why I went for a new car. Oh well. I’ve gotten use to the lack now! Lol.

    Nice new read! That’s a new to me one but looks very intriguing! I hope you enjoy it!

    Here’s my StS

    Have a GREAT day!

      Well, our used car didn’t come with a manual, so we don’t even know how to opperate somethings yet…lol. We ordered one so hopefully it gets here soon. 🙂

  3. Cute car! We have a Journey too although no push start lol.

    I want to read that Huber series. I love those covers.

    Happy Memorial Day!

  4. The Emily Dickinson mystery looks so good! I may request it from NetGalley. Dickinson has been one of my favorite poets since my college years.

    I used to love the Encyclopedia Brown books as a child. (They go waaay back lol!) And I’m glad you’ve been enjoying the Virgin River books.

  5. It’s been rainy in my neck of the woods too. Even though it’s gloomy, I’m actually glad for the rain because we need the water. Congrats on the new car! That’s exciting!

  6. Yay for the new car though that learning curve can be hard at first getting used to new features. I’m so curious about the Amanda Flower book. I can’t wait to see what you think of it. I hope you’re having a great week!
