The Week In Review #280

December 29, 2019 Memes 12

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.

Hope everyone had a great Christmas! I managed to have a decent time at my aunt’s house because the one cousin who is usually a party pooper was actually pretty decent and we played games and had fun!

This year the weather has been so wacky and this week is no different. It was almost 70 on Christmas! And then Saturday night we were under a tornado watch till 1o pm in December! I really hope the weather next year straightens up! Yes, I am talking to you mother nature! πŸ™‚

I binged Virgin Rivers on Netflix and now I really need to read the book series and I blame Barb who mentioned she was watching it…lol. It was really good if you like wholesome drama with a bit of romance. It reminded me a lot of Cedar Cove from Hallmark so I suspect the books will be a bit like the CC books too. So I see a new book series binge in my future! (There are 18 books so maybe not a whole series binge…lol).

Have a great week and Happy New Year!!!

What you might have missed on my blog

Books read last week

  • Good Girls Lie – This book was kind of dull and didn’t pick up till the last half and it only picked up enough to squeeze out a 3 star rating from me. If it wasn’t a tour book I probably would have DNFed it and never found out what happened…lol.
  • Murder at the Inn – Boy did I binge listen to this cute cozy series, there are only three so wasn’t hard to catch up…lol.
  • Skin Games – I did it! I caught up on this series this year! So bring on the new one in July 2020!

Currently reading

  • Magic Triumphs – So close to finishing this and it’s bittersweet! I want to finish this series this year but I also don’t want it to end! *sniffles*
  • Project Duchess – Buddy reading this with Berls and we are taking it easy so I have only read a couple chapters so far but I think I might like it.
  • The Janes – Only 7% into this one but so far it’s interesting.
  • A Trick of the Light – Book 7 of the Chief Inspector Gamache series and just getting started so about 3 hours in.

What might be up next

  • Mindy Kim and the Yummy Seaweed Business – Tour coming in January so want to get it finished. It will be really quick.
  • Claw Enforcement – Also a review books I want to get too as I am trying really hard to stay ahead!
  • The Peculiar Incident on Shady Street – Middle Grade haunted house story. πŸ™‚

How was your week? What did you get?

    I’ve got a few long series that I’m challenging myself to finish reading in 2020. I’ve scaled back my ARC requests to make room. πŸ˜‰
    Happy New Year and I hope you enjoy the rest of your week, Stormi.
    Here’s my Sunday Post

    I cried when the Virgin River series books ended and binged the series on Netflix. Then I binged season three of Mrs. Masiel on Prime, The Witcher on Netflix and the Mandalorian on Disney. Now I have no idea what to watch!

    Glad your cousin wasn’t a pooper! Have a Happy New Year!

    Sounds like a great week, bad parenting day (lol) and all. Wishing you a restful few days as we come up on the new year.

    Glad you had a nice Christmas! It’s been 50’s here for a couple of days but we’re supposed to cool off again and get snow, so… ugh. Another excuse for me to stay home and have a quiet New Year’s lol.

    That’s a bummer about Good Girls Lie. I was kinda looking forward to that one. Oh well they can’t all be winners haha.

    Hope you have a nice New Year’s!
