Well what a week! So I had plans to do the Sbooktacular readathon but I haven’t done very well as things got in the way. One our car broke down again, but thank goodness it done so right as we were turning into JJ’s a little cafe in town and not while we were on the road cause the ball joint fell out and that could have been a tragic ending. 🙁 It seems that it has been cracked for some time as it had a old crack and then the fresh new one! UGH. Then I forgot that Stranger Things 2 came out Friday and I binged the whole thing…lol. So not much reading been done but it’s not over till the 31st so maybe I can still get in a few. 🙂
OMG! I hate you Mother Nature it is not right to be 29 degrees at night yet! Not in Missouri, we had two days with the highs in the high 40’s lows in the high 20’s and BRRRRR. Can we fast forward to spring. 🙂 It is so weird because one day this week it’s going to be in the 70’s!
My poster projects are due on Monday and so here they are, they are in three different styles: Russian Constructivism, Bauhaus and Heroic Realism. I put them in that order so you know which poster belongs with which style. 🙂 We had to base our posters on a real non profit organization so I picked Thorn that is about helping get those who exploit children on the internet as we had to use these child labor pics from the 1900’s for our posters.
The one on the end was my first time messing with paints. We painted over a black and white photo which was really cool but getting the right face colors was pretty hard for someone who has never painted…lol. I am so ready for a new project and I do believe he said a book cover project was next!!!!
Well on to the good stuff!

Books I have added
- The Chalk Man – #barbmademedoit as I seen this one on her blog and immediately went and requested it…lol. Though not real keen on the flashback kind this will go from 1986 to present day and is a thriller and just sounded like one I would like.
- Haven – YA fantasy about a boy who meets a girl who isn’t normal and some people want to kill her because of it. Sounds cool!
- Historically Dead – Book two in the Stitch in Time Mysteries – I still need to read book one but couldn’t help myself!
Thanks Netgalley and Crown Publishing, Entangled Publishing and Kensington!
Audiobooks for review from Tantor
- Not a Creature was Purring – Love this series and I believe this is book six and believe it or not I am caught up on this one so I can jump right into this. Might have to sign up for the Ho Ho Ho readathon. 😉
- Gingerbread Man – Always wanted to try this series!
- Mr. Peabody’s House – I love Eve Langlais though not real sure about the pack of werewolves to one gal, not so sure that it’s going to be my kind of read but I will try it cause I like the author, so this shall be a new adventure. 🙂
For featuring Goodbye Christopher Robin on my blog the lovely lady at Grace Hill Media sent me a package. 🙂
Tote and journal! 🙂
Books read last week
- City of Lies – This one wasn’t anything like I thought it would be and went more along the lines of historical romance than mystery. It was okay but just not anything like her other series which is a favorite of mine.
- By Hook or By Crook – Book three in the Crochet Mysteries and it was pretty good. It had been a while since I listened to the first two but quickly fell right back in and remembered the characters. 🙂
- Colt Harper: Esteemed Vampire Cat – this one has been pretty funny so far!
- Dangerously Dark – needed to read this one for a while now and only about 5% in but it okay so far.
- Blood Loss – Not bad so far but not real far either.
- Turn of the Screw – Hoping to read this one before Halloween so cutting it short! Thank goodness it’s not a long audio!
What might be up next
- Touch of Red – Might not get this one in for the readathon but I have started it and I am intrigued so decided I will keep reading.
- Northstars – Need to get caught up on all those graphics I got earlier! 🙂
- The Fury – I keep putting this one on here and I swear I am going to get to it this time. 🙂
What I am Watching
I binged the who new season of Stranger Things!!! I couldn’t help myself and I enjoyed it. I need to catch up on NCIS and NCIS: NO, and Riverdale as I have been slacking. Watched the newest addition to the Hallmark mysteries Darrow and Darrow and it was pretty good. I love Tom Cavanagh (Harrison Wells on Arrow) so I have to be a bit partial…lol. Thank goodness for demand. Christmas has arrived on Hallmark already!!! I watched a few this weekend as I used it for background noise…lol.
How was your week? What did you get?
