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.
I was so enjoying those nice 70’s and 80’s days but we are back into the 90’s but that is expected for this time of year. I am not going to rush getting to winter so I am complaining but not complaining…lol. 🙂
I participated in my first readathon as a booktuber and it has been a lot of fun. I am learning that I am a horrible vlogger as my life is just not that interesting. 🙂 I tried one of the video challenges and did some of the instagram challenges but kept forgetting about the twitter ones. I read a bunch though short books helped. I am sort of readathoned out but it was fun.
Not much more to report. Hope everyone had a great week and happy reading!

Books read last week
So I changed my TBR a little for the booktubeathon I participated in but still managed some how to get 7 books in! Yes, this clearly means I have no life and I am a hermit who does nothing but read.
- The Snow Queen – So I have never read the actual Snow Queen and I only know the disney version of Frozen and this was a lot different than that so I am kind of curious about the original version of the Snow Queen. I did enjoy this but can’t compare it to any other version.
- The Hound of the Baskervilles – I really enjoyed this one but I have never read the actual story so can’t compare it either.
- A Murder for the Books – This was a different kind of cozy with a hunt for the truth of what happened a long time ago brings to light some unsettling things in the present. I really liked it.
- Rattus New Yorkus – Typical fun Shea reading with lots and lots and I mean LOTS of nasty rats…lol. That in itself was creepy.
- Persuasion – This was a reread and it was just as enjoyable as always.
- Winnie-the-Pooh – was a quick decision as it was short and I wanted to get more books in…lol. It was cute though the narrator was horrid.
- Undead Girl Gang – I liked this one. Mila performs a spell to bring back her dead friend so she can find out what happened to her and accidently brings back the two mean girls who died a week earlier as well.
- The Black Country – So I am trying hard to get this one done at least on Sunday, but as I type this I am about 155 pages in. It was for one of the booktubeathon challenges but if it doesn’t get read in time that is okay.
- Killer Green Tomatoes – Second book in the Farm to Fork mystery series and I believe I am enjoying this one more than the first one. 🙂
What might be up next
- Behind the Door – I can’t wait to dive into this one. It’s a new series involving Kathy Ryan who was in the book Chill which I enjoyed.
- Onyx Webb – One of my bookish friends Laura sent this to me and I have yet to read it so I need too. I told myself that I am going to read more of my own books so for every couple eARCs I am reading from my shelves!
- Annihilation – Been kind of curious about this since the movie came out. I haven’t seen the movie as I wanted to read the book or in this case listen. 🙂
How was your week? What did you get?
