The Week In Review #166

November 12, 2017 Misc. 18

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.

The car is fixed!!! So I am praying it stays that way for a while but I am also a bit nervous about driving it. Dad did have the other side checked and they said it seemed to be okay so fingers crossed!

This is the last week to work on my book cover project and it’s going okay but needs some work. Then the following week we present them and then it’s Thanksgiving break. I can’t believe my class is almost over! Only 8 actual class periods until it’s over. 🙁 I have really had a lot of fun learning photoshop and hope the next class isn’t to hard but I seen some things they did and it looks complicated…lol.

The weather her is kind of up and down but for the most part it hasn’t been too bad. There are some times though that I am ready for spring to happen again…lol. It’s been nice not to have to build a fire as that saves on money if we don’t have to buy as much! 🙂

Have a great week! Happy reading!

What you might have missed on my blog

Books I have added

Netgalley

The week when all my request get approved all on one day! 🙂

     
  • The New Neighbors – Got an email on this one and how could I resist it. What if your perfect home turned out to be the scene of the perfect crime? I mean it sounds great! 🙂
  • Deja Moo – Just finished Pressed to Death and so this is the next in that series and I can’t wait as I really enjoy this series. A holiday tradition turns deadly, but is the paranormal museum to blame? Love this museum!
  • The Beloveds – #Barbmademedoit as I seen this on her post last week. The only info on it is “A deliciously creepy, slightly campy contemporary gothic — think Shirley Jackson (We Have Always Lived in the Castle, Hangsaman) meets V. C. Andrews’ multi-million copy Flowers in the Attic franchise — that turns Daphne Du Maurier’s classic Rebecca on its head”– sounds pretty cool, huh?  🙂
  • Paper Ghost – Another #Barbmademedoit as it was also on her post last week, her blog is so bad for my TBR…lol. A gripping thriller about a man who may or may not have dementia—and who may or may not be a serial killer— now come on how could I resist something like that! 🙂

Books read last week

      

Three Christmas themes and a Halloween theme but it was all about the cozy mysteries this week! 🙂

  • Pressed to Death – Second book in the Perfectly Proper Paranormal Museum and it was pretty good. Kind of bummed about how the relationship kind of took a turn but other than that it was really good.
  • Twelve Slays of Christmas – I absolutely loved this one! I am pretty much a Scrooge this time of year but this Christmas cozy was just so cute I couldn’t help but smile as I read it! 🙂 Just super cute and fun!
  • Not a Creature was Purring – Another great read in this series. I really enjoy the Paws and Claws series and it’s nice being caught up on a series. 🙂
  • How the Witch Stole Christmas – I enjoyed this one but is is bad of me to say that I liked it mainly because Belfry was missing so I didn’t have to listen to his irritating little voice?! 😉 Like the others it was funny and full of great characters.

Currently reading

  
  • a Christmas Peril – The #hohohorat is going pretty good for me this year! I just started this one so no real opinion yet but my friend Barb said it was just okay. 🙂
  • The Whispering Skull – My first online audiobook on loan from the library! I really liked the first one so was excited to see that this one was available.

What might be up next

       

Mostly like it will be Penelope March is Melting as I have a tour post for it coming up on the 20th. 🙂

How was your week? What did you get?

      My dad is getting wimpy in his old age so if it gets below 40 he must have a fire…lol. 🙂 Some nights have dipped down pretty low though the day time hasn’t been to bad.

    I’m glad the car is finally fixed. I know it was an ordeal at times. Seems like I’m getting a lot of “blame” this week – sorry not sorry. I can agree that The Twelve Slays of Christmas is definitely a good read to get in the Christmas mood. Kind of campy but in a totally awesome way. I hope you are enjoying A Christmas Peril more than I did. It was a strong first in a series but for some reason, and it was probably me, I couldn’t connect to the MC much at all. Hope you have an awesome week!

      On chapter 4 and it’s just not grabbing me like the last book did so I am trying hard not to compare…lol. 🙂

    Yeah for the car getting fixed! I’m always nervous for a while after repairs too. It seems you get one thing fixed and it stirs up other gremlins. LOL

    I’d love to have a fire. Used to have a fireplace at my old house. Not I have a fire pit outside but don’t use it as often as I want.

    And loving your books, especially those cute cozy Christmas ones!

    • Stormi

      Well, seeing this is the second thing that has gone wrong in the last few months it does make me a bit nervous. 🙂

    Yay, I am happy to hear that you got your car fixed. That must be a big relief. Our weather here has been chilly, and I am loving it. The leaves are everywhere and the colors on the mountains around us are so pretty. But, not for long, we’ll have snow soon. Which I’m okay with. 😉 Have a great week.

    I bet Photoshop would be so interesting. And good luck with the car- hopefully no worries going forward. 🙂

    Twelve Slays of Christmas (love that title) sounds like a lot of fun. I like a good Christmas mystery once in a while.

      Photoshop is interesting because there is much more you can do than just change photos around. You can create pictures with the paint tools, and animate things which we will learn next. 🙂

    It’s such a relief when the car is working… Ours needed a new clutch and two tyres this year:(. The Photoshop course sounds really good – I’m glad you’re enjoying it. Have a good week.

    I’m sure your next class will be great! Try not to worry too much. I’m excited to see your book cover products. Our weather has been strange this week, shooting from 40s to 80s and back down again. I don’t even know what’s going on anymore. Have a great week!

    Glad the car is fixed and fingers crossed that everything stays fixed! My husband’s truck is problematic and seems like it always needs something done so I have a feeling it’s heading back to the shop soon which makes me very unhappy. Hopefully the next class goes great. Everything looks complicated until you know how to do it! I think you’ll like Body in the Bayou. It’s been a pretty consistent series for me and I really liked the latest one. I’ve got Deja Moo coming up and you’ve got me curious about just what happens with the relationship – I have a bad feeling! You’ve got some great Christmas books going even if you are a scrooge! I meant to do some more holiday reading but my planning kind of didn’t’ happen! Hope your week is going great.
