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.
That is it I am done with winter!!! This is the second time this winter that we have been in the single digits at night. Two days this week it didn’t get above 20 and I am FREEZING! This bi-polar weather is driving me crazy as next week it’s going to be back up into the 50’s and 60’s. No wonders I can’t get adapted to the cold, bring on spring I am so ready. I think I need to hibernate till spring gets here. 🙁 🙂
Other things going on around here…hmmm, well for some reason I had it in my head that I started my class this week but right before I got ready to go, I thought I better check again. I must have been in a big hurry to try out that graphic design class cause the calendar on the college website says classes start on the 17th….lol. The business end of things went back to work on the 3rd so I had it in my head that is when things started up again…good thing I checked. 🙂
Other than my rantings here nothing has been happening here but a bunch of audio listening! 🙂

Books I have added
So thought I was doing good and then Thursday hit and this happened….lol. 🙂
- Meddling Kids – The blurb kind of reminds me a mix of Stephen King novels (like It and Sometimes They Come Back) and the Scooby gang as adults…lol. I couldn’t pass it up! #barbmademedoit!
- Every Trick in the Rook – Marty Wingate has become one of my go-to cozy mystery authors so I had to get book three in her Birds of a Feather mystery series.
- A Babysitter’s Guide to Monster Hunting – Monster Hunting, now how could I pass that up. 🙂
Couple Galley’s from Simon and Schuster, thanks!!
- The King of Bourbon Street -It got crinkled in delivery. 🙁 At least it’s just a galley. Not my normal romance genre but I am kind of a sucker for a New Orleans background. 🙂
- Royally Roma – Is kind of a retelling of the movie Roman Holiday and I loved that movie so I was curious. 🙂 It’s with a prince instead of a princess. 🙂
When it comes to this series I always jump at the chance to get in on the blog tour when they email me, even if it means starting it as soon as I got it!! 🙂
Spent some of my gift card this week. Everything was 2.99 or under. Couldn’t pass up getting my first bookshots as I have been curious about them. 🙂
Try as I might I just can’t help but grab some freebies…lol.
Books read last week
- Finally finished Stalked, and it had a slow start but I enjoyed the ending. I guess every series has that one book. Overall I do like this series and will continue if they come out with more.
- A Whisker of Trouble – doing my best to catch up on some series and this is a fun cozy mystery series. Not bad for a cat mystery (Hey, I am a dog girl)…lol.
- Crime on the Fens and Shadow Over the Fens was a great start to a series I just started and now I can’t wait for the next one to come out on audio for review!! I hate waiting…lol. I love a good British crime series. 🙂
- Telling Tails – Such a fun addition to the Second Chance Cat mysteries! My second 2017 audio, I am doing good! 🙂
As you can tell I have nothing better to do than listen to audios as I am not in my class and currently unemployed….lol.
- Dead and Breakfast is off to a good start and my first 2017 eARC.
- Batgirl at Superhero High -had to put D&B on the back burner for a bit till I get this one done as I agreed to review it on Wednesday and just got it Friday! I didn’t care I wanted this book!!
- Consumed – Second in another series I am trying to catch up on. I am on a roll! 🙂
- Moon Called – Been wanting to try this one for a while, listening to it on my phone. (Since it’s going to be warm next week, it’s time to try and get my garden in order for spring. (Old plants out, more dirt put in, mix in fertilizer, etc.)
What might be up next
- Tag team reviewing Little Heaven with Barb from Booker T’s Farm, so need to get this one done.
- Two Tall Tails -Really I am only interested in one tail, as I haven’t read the other cat mystery but I will listen to them both. 🙂 This novella audio will catch me all up with Second Chance Mysteries. 🙂
- Father of Lies – Is a Darkly disturbing occult horror so I am really curious…lol.
How was your week? What did you get?
