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? Β 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, the weather has gone downhill again. πŸ™ As I write this it is doing this nasty freezing mist thing and supposed to start snowing later tonight and on Sunday. πŸ™

Okay so this week you get the grand unveiling of my logo! πŸ™‚

It still needs a few tweaks but for the most part I am pretty sure this is how it’s going to look. I have a few other ideas I am working on for the website I have to make and will show them off later. πŸ™‚

One thing about doing a lot of work on my designing is lots of audiobooks are getting finished!! I am also trying to do some designing that is not connected to class so I can practice and get some cool designs to post on my new instagram page called Dark Storm Designs of course! πŸ™‚

Happy Reading!

What you might have missed on my blog

Books I have added

Netgalley/Edelweiss

I know I know! (this comment is for Michelle…lol) πŸ™‚

  • The Spook in the Stacks – This is a favorite series of mine that I use to listen to on audio, but then it was cancelled. πŸ™ So I was really excited to see that a new publisher picked it up and the author was allowed to continue it. Now I am not sure I have seen any Crooked Lane books on Tantor Audio where I get my audios so I figured I best snatch it up in ebook form. πŸ™‚ A lighthouse library who wouldn’t want to read this series!
  • Death and a Pot of Chowder – While interviewing Lea Wait I found out that this is her with a different name!! I am a huge fan of her Mainely Needlepoint series so I had to jump on this new series! I have always wanted to travel to Maine so reading this author is my one way of traveling there!
  • Bad Man – #Barbmademedoit!! πŸ™‚ This was on her stack this weekend and it sounds really good. I am a little worried because I have not had the best of luck with my thrillers this year. πŸ™ It’s about a boy who takes his eyes of his little brother for a second and loses him and can’t find him. He never gives up hope of finding him even 5 years later and it seems something sinister is going on in that grocery store!! Please be good, please please!! LOL πŸ™‚Β 

Update!!! Library Loot

I had two audios come in at the same time from the library that I had on hold!!! UGH

Β 

  • An Enchantment of Ravens – This has been on my holds since November 3rd! I sure hope I enjoy it…lol
  • There’s Someone Inside Your House – This one has been on that hold list for the same amount of time and I have seen mixed reviews about this one which is why I figured library was the way to go. πŸ™‚

Which one should I listen to first!!

Books read last week

Β Β Β Β 

  • Lamentation – Sighs, was so hoping it was going to be a good one but it was pretty lackluster, or I am just getting harder on books…lol. 2.5 stars
  • The Ghosts of Kali Oka Road – Had a lot of potential but the ending felt like it was two quickly done and I think it would have benefited from being a little bit longer as it wa a short listen. 2 stars
  • Survival of the Fritters – At least I know my cozies won’t let me down!! This was really cute! 4 stars
  • The Last Wolf – It was really different for a PNR type books but still was only mediocre to me. 3 stars
  • Dial M for Mousse – This is one of my new favorite series and now I am all caught up! Phew! getting caught up on my cozies is tough stuff as I got so many going! πŸ™‚Β  4 stars

Currently reading

Β 

  • The Woman in the Window – Okay, so I am going to admit that at 15% in I am a bit on the bored side, so if you have read this one please tell me it’s going to pick up soon!!! I get a bit impatient with the slow starts to my thrillers. πŸ™
  • Chili Con Corpse – I really like this Supper Club series! πŸ™‚

What might be up next

Β Β Β Β Β 

I was going to start The Reunion but my online library bought a bunch more of The Woman in the Window bumping me up on the list and well I feel sorry for the 158 people behind me, so decided to put this one off again!! I really want to read it!!! πŸ™‚

  1. LOVE the Design! I told you, you could do it! Looking forward to seeing more of your design work.

    You got lots of books again! πŸ™‚

    Our weather is cold and rainy. I love Rain but not when it’s cold plus the kids are starting to get tired of being stuck in the house.

    Have a great week, Stormi! Happy Reading! Miss you!!! oxox

  2. We both better keep our fingers crossed with Bad Man huh? Hope it isn’t another Chalk Man. I am anxious to hear your thoughts on The Reunion because even if it has nothing to do with the book, I’m totally in love with that cover. I think you should read An Enchantment of Ravens so I know if I need to check it back out from the library again – didn’t get to it the first time around. The logo looks GREAT!

  3. Wow I like the logo! Nice. Very professional too. Go you!! πŸ™‚

    The Spook in the Stacks looks fun. And I’d vote for Enchantment of Ravens, even though I haven’t read it- There’s Someone in the House was okay but I didn’t love.

    I liked the Woman in the Window but to be honest I’m not sure it picks up much? It kind of has that same pace throughout, I think. But I will say there is a killer (heh) twist at the end, that I didn’t see coming. The Reunion looks good too, I bought that one.

  4. I love the logo you made. I am quite the novice with that kind of thing. I always end up asking my teen for help. Great new books this week! Yay for having a favorite series get picked up again. I am considering listening to The Last Wolf but have seen several mediocre reviews for it so I am not sure. Have a great week!

  5. I’m tired of this cold weather! We had some freezing rain this morning also. I live in Texas so I just can’t deal with it. Lol! Have a great week!

  6. Our weather has been nasty all week too. I thought the rain was gone until I got pelted at the store today. Your logo looks awesome!!! Keep up the hard work!

  7. I’m so excited about A Spook in the Stacks! It sounds great and I’m so glad that Crooked Lane picked the series up. I love your logo! It looks fantastic. Can’t wait to see your website. The weather is nasty here too. Just rainy and cold. Hope you’re having a great week!
