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.

Oh my this weather is killing me! It was so nice earlier this week and now it’s back to freezing. In the middle of the week I either got a sinus infection or head cold and I just feel blah. If I am not better by Monday I may have to get some better meds which means going to the doctor…blah. It’s affecting my reading! I don’t really feel like reading but listening is not so bad so I managed to actually read a bit this week cause I listened to a lot. 🙂

So I decided not to co-host the New Release Challenge with Lexxie this year as I have a lot going on and need a break. I still want to help her spread the word though so sign ups are live! Click on the banner.

What you might have missed on my blog

Books I have added



  • The Broken Girls – Vermont, 1950. There’s a place for the girls whom no one wants–the troublemakers, the illegitimate, the too smart for their own good. It’s called Idlewild Hall. Has me intrigued! 🙂
  • The Legend of Jack Riddle – Forced to visit his distant relative with the unusual name of Gretel, Jack is about to find out that fairy tales aren’t sparkly, cheesy love stories. They’re dark. They have claws. They’re a warning.  Sounds cool right!!! 🙂
  • Unnatural Causes – Katie LeClair has finally settled down as the new doctor in Baxter, MI. After years of moving, schooling, and training, she wants nothing more than to find a place she can call home, and a small town outside of Ann Arbor seemed perfect. When those towns sound perfect you know they are not going to be so….lol. 🙂 (For blog tour)

Audiobooks from Tantor


  • Life is But a DreamSage and Marlow are reunited in the second book of the Nursery Rhyme Suspense series. When Sage’s dreams merge with Marlow’s they know something other than their past partnership is connecting them. When the drowning dreams start to come true, Sage wonders if she can prevent her own death, because someone is definitely out to get her. Just finished the first one in this series, there was a light syfy fell along with a mystery, I liked it so curious about the second one.
  • Of Murder and MenEver since her business partner, Shauna, fell for a wealthy landowner in town, Cat has been working double time to keep her writers’ retreat running. And with the January session almost underway, that spells trouble. As if scheduling mishaps aren’t disastrous enough, Shauna skips out on kitchen duties one morning, forcing Cat to serve unsuspecting guests store-bought muffins…. But best-laid plans really go awry when Shauna discovers her beau missing from their bed. Third book in the Cat Latimer series and I can’t wait to listen to this one!

Books Won


  • Final Girls – Ten years ago, college student Quincy Carpenter went on vacation with five friends and came back alone, the only survivor of a horror movie–scale massacre. Sounds like a cool story though it has gotten lots of mixed reviews, so if I don’t like it at least I didn’t buy it. 🙂 Won this from goodreads! Thanks!
  • Murder in an English Village – As friends, the boisterous and brash American Beryl couldn’t be less alike than the prim and proper British Edwina. But as sleuths in an England recovering from the Great War, they’re the perfect match . . . I do love a good historical mystery! Won this from the Wicked Cozy Author blog. Thanks!
  • The Afterlife of Holly Chase – On Christmas Eve five years ago, Holly was visited by three ghosts who showed her how selfish and spoiled she’d become. They tried to convince her to mend her ways. She didn’t. And then she died. I won a book of my choice of $10 or less from one of the HoHoHo readathon challenges and thought this one sounded pretty cool! Thanks!

  1. I own a copy of One Was Lost so I’m curious how you like it. You may like Final Girls. It was a good premise at least so I hope you do. I got Broken Girls too and am thinking about purchasing the Holly Chase book. I don’t think it’s actually horror but it sounds a tad odd so I thought it would be a good non-traditional Christmas read.

  2. Hope you’re feeling better! It’s been cold here too, we even got a little dusting of snow. And I’ll have to check out Coyer Winter sWitch, that looks fun.

    Murder in an English Village looks great! Congrats on winning it. I haven’t read a good cozy in ages seems like.

  3. How much did you love Lockwood and Co? I need to get the last book. I still haven’t gotten it yet.

    My sinuses have been EVIL! I can’t wait for the weather to stop being so weird. I now think I have a cold which should be fun right before the holiday!

    Have a great week, Stormi! Happy Reading! ox

  4. Hope you’re feeling better. Sinus infections are awful! I’m about to start Of Mice and Murder and am really looking forward to it. I love Lynn Cahoon. Debbie Macomber is one of those authors that I always mean to read – especially right around Christmas – but somehow never do. It probably isn’t going to happen this year so maybe next year? Hope your week is going great!
