The Week In Review #52

September 5, 2015 Memes 25

BMR,OHMy (1)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.

So I wasn’t sure if I was going back to Scholastic call center because they made us fill out apps through a temp agency and I didn’t get a call, then Scholastic called me a few days ago and said they could add some without going through temp agency. So I took my drug test, went to orientation and on Wed. I do a refresher course and then I guess it’s back to work. Not my favorite job but it’s something for now. 🙂

So that is about all that’s been going on around here.

What you might have missed on my blog

Books I have added

Netgalley:

Never,Never Dark Heart of Magic

Audiobook bought:

The Wolfen

Bought Kindle Reads:

A Study in Silks Bats and Bones Thunder

They were all .99 so not to bad. 🙂

Won:

Or at least I think I might have one them. I got them from Harper Collins but there was no notes or messages, so I am thinking that means I won them from somewhere. 🙂 I just can’t think of where…lol.

Freebies:

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000040_00067] Manhattan love Perscription for Delirium rivers recruit dead on demand

 

wicked luck mad tales just evil sea sick

So this is just a few of the freebies I got as I got to many to plaster them all here…lol.

Books read last week

The Foxglove killingsHanover House wolf capture

 

Still having a hard time finding something I want to read. I have started plenty but just didn’t finish much. 🙁

Currently reading

Sharcano Knots and Crosses tails

What might be up next

Dead House The Suffering My Highland Spy The Wolfen

    So many freebies. Shiny! 😀 And congrats on your win/unsolicited review books,lol. It would be nice if a message was included when the send out books.

    A drug test to work at the call center? Yeesh. Lousy, but it’s a job anyway.

    Enjoy the long weekend, or are you working? And Happy reading!

      LOL, yeah I have so many freebies on my kindle it’s scary…lol. I think most places do drug test these days so it isn’t a big deal..though I hate that every year I sign up to work there I have to do one over again. Sighs.

      • Bea

        I haven’t had to do drug tests in my work but I had to pass a criminal records check and fingerprint check. I suspect it won’t be long before they add drug testing.

    • Stormi

      Thanks, it’s a boring job but someone has to take the book club calls so kids can get their books…lol. 🙂

      I hope all my books are awesome when I read them! 🙂

    • Stormi

      There is not much around here where I live so I take what I can get. My knees are really bad so it makes any standing for long period of time jobs a no go and not a lot of sit down ones, so it will do. (Secretly hoping to write that best seller while working this job…lol)

    The Dead House was amazing and I loved it. Hope you pick that one as your next week. I also picked up the Jennifer Estep book as well.

    I guess it’s nice you do have a job, you can always see if you can find a better job later. I am so excited for dark Heart of magic, I have my copy pre-ordered, but I was still tempted to request a copy on netgalley as well. That’s interesting you got two books and can’t remember from where, maybe the blogger forgot to notify you to let you know you had won? I hope you’ll have a great week!

    • Stormi

      Yeah, it’s not a dream job but a job. Makes me want to work on getting the dream job though. 🙂 I am hoping Dark Heart of Magic is better than the first one…I thought it was okay but some times for me the build up in the first books are a bit boring. 🙂

  4. A Voracious Reader

    LOL on the won books. But hey, Cynthia Eden. I love her stuff. 🙂 Congrats on the job. It may not be your dream job, but at least it’s income while you look around, right? Good luck! *fingers crossed*

    • Stormi

      I hope Never, Never is good I got the book then read a review that wasn’t so good…I was like..noooo. 🙂

    Great bunch of books! I’m reading dead House right now. I hope you like scary!!! Wolfen was a fantastic read. Have several copies. And the movie, while older, is excellent too. You might find it on Netflix, not sure though. I bought the DVD.

    • Stormi

      Does that mean Dead House is Scary…cause I need scary…I hardly find anything I read these days in the horror genre scary…so fingers crossed. 🙂

  6. Kathy

    Congrats on your win! It would be nice if they emailed you before hand but I love getting surprises in the mail! I hope you find a different job soon. Have a great week Stormi!

  7. Deborah

    Oh Stormi, so many new books!!! You’re going to be busy….

    Good to hear you’ve got the gig with the call centre. I know what you mean about something not being your dream job, but making do. I can very much relate at the moment!
