The Week In Review #206

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.

Wow, has it been hot here! Several days last week was 98 with a heat index of 108 to 110. I am not a fan of HOT so I am glad that we are going back down to the 80’s this week at least I hope. Fingers Crossed!

So this week I did something crazy and brave on my part. I am extremely nervous about telling everyone because I feel like it’s horrible as I am so bad at talking to a camera! I started a booktube channel!!! I am really excited even though I feel my videos are horrible but I am a very shy person, very introverted and though I wish I was as bubbly as some of the ones I love to watch (maybe I will get there), I am not. I do like my second video a bit better than the first. Would love some likes and subscribes if you are into booktube! πŸ™‚ My channel is just called Storm Reads (not very inventive…lol)

I am participating in the booktubeathon challenge which was something I was wanting to do so it prompted me to just go for it so I could as it starts on July 30th – Aug. 5th. πŸ™‚

I am sure I will get better with time so I am trying not to cringe when I edit these things…lol.

So that was the excitement of my week! How has your week been?

What you might have missed on my blog

Books I have added


  • The Mansion – A new one from Ezekiel Boone so I just had to grab it!! πŸ™‚ A smart house computer gone wrong! I am in!

Library Loot

  • The Last Equation of Isaac Severy – When Isaac Severy dies he leaves behind a letter that is something like a scavenger hunt. Heard good and bad things so thought I would give it a try.

Books read last week

Β Β 

  • You May Now Kill the Bride – This one had me confused for almost the whole thing. Not one of the best R.L. Stine books but it was okay.
  • Twas the Knife Before Christmas – If you are a cozy lover you need to read this series!! This is book two and it was almost as fun as the first one and one of my favorite cozies of the year! Such a great holiday cozy that has all the whimsical elements needed for a Christmas read. Would make a great Christmas mystery for Hallmark!

Currently reading

Β Β Β 

  • Kill Creek – In such a horror mood and heard good things about this one. Just getting started so not much of an opinion yet.
  • Lies – I am only on page 40 but I am so curious as to what is going on!! He sees his wife where she isn’t supposed to be and things spiral after that.
  • Sky in the Deep – I am liking this one. Lots of fighting, there are some problems but over all so far it’s not been bad. 5 hours left.
  • Off Kilter – Eden wants to be a romance writer and is writing a Scottish novel. In need of a fresh start she travels to Scotland to see things up close so her novel with be more authentic. Of course murder and mayhem ensue. πŸ™‚ 2 hours left. Loving the Scottish accent!

What might be up next

Β Β 

  • The Last Equation of Isaac Severy – Seen it around thought it sounded cool. I figure if I don’t like it oh well, it can go back to the library. πŸ™‚
  • A Tale of Two Murders – In the mood for a historical mystery!
  • Treble at the Jam Fest – Trying to catch up on some of my cozy series.

How was your week? What did you get?

  1. Good luck with the booktube channel. I am a shy person when it comes to doing any type of video, maybe one day. πŸ™‚ Enjoy your Sunday and the rest of the upcoming week too. Happy reading.

    • Stormi

      I am very shy so I think my videos are a bit awkward right now but hoping they get better. πŸ™‚

  2. Oh nice! I don’t think I could ever do a booktube channel. I’m too nervous in front of a camera. Omg…all the presentations I had to do back in school. I still loathe having to call people for things like job interviews or whatnot because I am just wayyyy too nervous! Kudos to you starting a booktube channel!

    Yay for the new read too! Totally new to me but I hope you will love it!

    Here’s my STS

    Have a GREAT day!

      I am actually hoping that doing this will help me with my shyness as I am just like you I have a hard time calling to even ask about a job, heck I hate calling my doctor! LOL! I think I look pretty awkward right now but hoping that I get better as I go!

  3. Good for you for doing something that made you nervous. I don’t think I would ever be brave enough for a book tube channel. I’ll head over and check it out x

  4. I could never do the videos so take heart and good luck! Yay for cooler weather. In NC we will also be in 80s but with rain showers and more humidity. I’m looking forward to Hurricane Berls this week. Anne – Books of My Heart

  5. That is way too hot! Not good when 80’s is a cooldown, right? Those heat indexes sound awful.

    Congrats on your Booktube channel! How fun, I’ll have to bookmark and check em out. It looks like it would be fun to do. πŸ™‚

    I thought Sky in the Deep was pretty decent, but yeah there were a few issues. Looking forward to seeing your final thoughts.

  6. I’m so glad you finally took the booktube plunge. I’m also glad you’re enjoying Sky in the Deep and I’ll go ahead and pick it up now when I see it at the library (or as a Kindle deal perhaps).

  7. I have been addicted to YouTube lately (I fell down the makeup/beauty product rabbit hole) and have been really looking for booktube channels I like so I’m subscribing! It’s so freaking hot here too and I’m kind of done! Thought I’ll be griping when it’s cold in December!
