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 goodness is it ever hot! Though I like the hot more than the cold but the heat index is killer! My poor garden! I really hope we get some rain soon as we are very dry here. Plus side of that I don’t have to mow! 🙂
So I am getting a lot of little green tomatoes and a few big ones but nothing turning red yet. 🙁 No peppers on my plants yet either. My other plants are still growing but the toms and jap peppers I have had the longest…sighs. Might need some miracle grow and well a nice downpour wouldn’t hurt…lol. Something about a good rain on your plants just does wonder.

Looks like both Kathy and I had some good reads to review this last week! 🙂
Books I have added
- A Wrench in the Works – Since I didn’t seem to mind so much jumping in the middle of this series (I think watching the hallmark show helped), I figured why not continue! I can’t wait to read this one!
- Little Comfort – I have a soft spot for librarian protagonist and I really like that cover!
- Liar’s Paradox – I mystery series involving a brother/sister team and I thought that sounded cool.
From MacMillan Audio
- Our Kind of Cruelty – A very dark and strange psychological thriller!
- The Devil’s Half Mile – Don’t normally go back so far in history for my mystery thrillers as this one is in 1799. 🙂
- A Bone to Pick – Though extremely different that the tv version I still enjoy the first one so needed to get to this one.
- Dead Beat – So I got addicted to Dresden again via James Marster narrator! 🙂
- Salem’s Lot – I have decided to go back and listen to SK books from the beginning on audio. I don’t do well with long books so audio is the best way to go these days. I am only picking the ones I can find at the library or hoopla so we shall see how this goes! 🙂
Books read last week
- Stage 4 Murder – Another fun installment in this series. These books always have me laughing out loud!
- Daring Dreamers Club – This was a cute MG about friendship and daring to dream.
- Blood Rites – It was so fun getting back into the Dresden Files and the narrator is just so fantastic!
- Blindsighted – This author can really write a very disturbing crime novell! I like it! 🙂
- Jurassic Florida – This one is so much fun! Was hoping to finish it but got caught up in those animal attack movies! Will finish it today!
- When Animals Attack – I am almost finished! I have made it to about 89% and found out that even though the table of content only goes to Squirm (nasty worm movie…eww), there was a whole bunch more not listed!! So I am on Ticks (gives the me hibbie jibbies just thinking about that one!).
- Hell House – So far it’s not to bad and I know some think it’s kind of boring but I think listening to it on audio and at a faster speed helps, especially with all that paranormal babble about electro thingy majigs…lol. I have little under 7 hours left.
- Our Kind of Cruelty – I am not real sure what I think about this one as it’s rather dark and disturbing. Though I normally like that kind of stuff it’s just different, strange, and all kinds of stalkerish. I just know something bad is going to happen
and I keep waiting for it to happen!Oh my, it just happened! I was writing this and listening to it lol. 3.1 hours left and I am curious to see how this goes!
What might be up next
What I watched
I watched a lot of animal attack horror movies! Monkey Shine (1988), Piranha (1978), Prey (2007) Shakma (1990)(another monkey movie), Squirm (1976), Strays (1991), The Last Shark (1981) (total Jaws ripoff with a really bad plastic shark!), The Deadly Mantis (1957), The Giant Claw (1957), The Deadly Bat (1940’s with Bela Lugosi!), The Pack (though not the one in the book as couldn’t find it, this was a 2015 dog attack movie), Killer Bees (1974) (Was trying to watch The Swarm but it ended up being a later bee movie), The White Buffalo (1977) (more western than horror…blah..but it had a very large killer buffalo!)
