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.

Well, back to work and it’s boring as ever…lol. Not much happened this week. It’s been cold but nothing like those on the east coast, thank God! I don’t know how you northerners do it.

Don’t forget if you would like to read some mysteries in February with me to sign up. You can go to my sign up page by clicking on the picture.

  1. It sucks being a northerner sometimes! LOL. Although with the east coast getting shmackered we’re actually lucky at the moment, it passed us by. Getting Cozy with a Mystery looks great, I’ll sign up. I have at least one mystery on tap for February, so yeah!

    Murder in an Irish Village looks fun! Stay warm…

    • Stormi

      I bet it can be pretty up that way but I don’t have thick enough skin…lol. 🙂 Great, I hope you do sign up. I thought it would be fun to have a bunch of others reading with me. 🙂

  2. I just signed-up for the mystery challenge in febraury and cna’t wait to see what you’ve planned for that month :). Here it’s cold, but no snow like on the east coast, I saw some pictures and it looks crazy.

    I am sorry, you can totally blame me for the irsh Murder one. There are some great cozy mysteries on netgalley lately. I also got The Sea Witch recently as it was free. I am having some trouble getting the Mercury one on my kindle, they only have the pdf option and I can’t read it as pdf, let’s hope they add a mobi soon.

    I hope you’ll enjoy A Scone to Die for. I am currently reading it and am really enjoying it. I have A Disguise to die for pre-ordered in paperback, it sounds so exciting! And pies and prejudice I have that one too, but then in paperback. Murder she Barked is on my wishlist. I hope you’ll have a great week and enjoy all your new books!

  3. My week was kinda boring, too. I mean, I did storm prep just in case, but other than that…pfft. lol Ok, getting some snow was fun since we rarely get any, but it didn’t amount to much. 🙂

    • Stormi

      I am liking Murder She Barked and I love The Helen Grace series. 🙂 I haven’t had much snow but I am good with that and if I don’t get any more I will be happy…lol. I am sure you have had enough of it.

  4. Boring weeks are good and I’m also glad I’m not in the east coast!! You have so many great mysteries but I’m staying away from Netgalley lol. Have a great week!

    • Stormi

      Yes, they are. 🙂 I am so glad I am not on the east coast either! 🙂 I wish I had more will power to stay away from Netgalley.

  5. It’s cold here as well and let’s just say I’m not handling it gracefully! Fantastic cozies as usual and I have a few of the ones you mention! I’m about 100 pages into the Diane Vallere book and am really enjoying it. The others are calling me as is the Getting Cozy with a Mystery. Since it’s only a month it doesn’t qualify as a challenge so if I sign up I’m not breaking my No Challenges in 2016 rule right? Have a great week and stay warm!

  6. We got slammed with the blizzard and it hasn’t been much fun, but I guess it’s great reading weather. All those cozies look amazing. Enjoy!

  7. Stormi

    I am only 25% in but so far it’s been okay, curious to see what is going to happen but really not got to any suspense or anything yet. Just her getting settled into the boarding school. 🙂

  8. I’m always amazed at how much you get read and the books you have coming in. So fun! I’m so glad you love Manners & Mutiny. That one has been staring at me from my shelf since release and I’ve really got to read it soon. It’s been killing me. I’ll check out your review after I’ve read it. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!

  9. I see a lot of cozies! Curious what you think of Doll House. Been thinking about reading it. We didn’t get any snow but it sure got bitter cold. Warming up nicely for this week:)

    • Stormi

      I have enjoyed the Helen Grace series, but I recommend you starting with Eeny Meeny if you haven’t read the series yet as The Doll’s House is book three. I think Mother Nature is punch drunk as it has been freezing and now it’s like 50 degrees, then goes back to being cold again…so ready for spring.

  10. You got a lot of good books it looks like. As one of those east coaster people-outside of Baltimore-I can attest to the cold. We got 29 inches of snow and just got our heat back after losing it for two days.We might have had a easy December, but this weekend more than made up for it!

  11. All those cozies on NetGalley are really hard to turn down, aren’t they? I’m thinking of joining your Febuary cozy challenge but I need to get home and get caught up on real work before I decide.

    Have a great week, Stormi!
