The Week In Review #46

July 25, 2015 Memes 38

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.

So my father went fishing this week so it really felt like I was getting a vacation. I love him and all but some times we just really clash. He lives with me and for the most part we get along but some times you just need a break and so it was nice..lol. So besides doing some cleaning I didn’t do a whole lot, was kind of lazy. Didn’t read near as much as I should have with him gone..lol. He normally has me on the go a lot and so it was nice to just sit around the house and do nothing. πŸ™‚

It has been so hot here, my poor garden is dying..heat index is like 105 or more!! UGH. So I have nothing to report here was to hot to have fun..felt a little sorry for dad out in the non-AC camper fishing…lol.

      Sorry about that, I think I had that link out next to my other one making sure I put the right books in the spots..lol. I bet I grabbed it instead of the new one, glad you still found me. πŸ™‚

    • Stormi

      Thanks for stopping by, I hope I like Any Given Doomsday but sounds like it must not have been good enough to remember..lol.

    I wish my husband would take the kids fishing for a weekend, that would be so lovely πŸ™‚ I know what you mean sometimes it’s just nice to have a break people.

    So it’s 105 by you that means no weeding this week πŸ˜‰ I left my garden for the weekend and had the girl downstairs water it, I would bet you she never did, I am praying it’s not dead when we get home.

    You got a lot of books, I hope you enjoy them all!

    Have a great week, Stormi! Happy Reading! oxox

      Trouble is a Friend of Mine was a cute YA mystery with a bit of a Sherlock Holmes type character. A nice light read.

  3. Charlie @ Girl of 1000 Wonders

    It has been hot here too! My large fern is burning up, so I’m moving it indoors. I don’t water until after dark, but the heat is still taking its toll.

    And here’s to you – sometimes it’s nice to just be a little lazy. I felt the same way this past week. πŸ™‚

    • Stormi

      Oh, I hope you fern makes it, it’s sure is burning up my garden. πŸ™

    • Stormi

      Yeah, giving a try, wasn’t sure how to work it at first but I figured it out…lol. This was a test run! πŸ™‚

  4. Greg

    Everybody needs a break sometimes. 105 ? Yikes. that is hot. We’re not that bad but it’s been pushing 90’s, and it’s close today. Gonna be hot all week.

    You got a ton of new books, hope they’re all good!

    • Stormi

      Yes, very hot. I have to bring my big dogs from outside in, but they do pretty good. πŸ™‚ I hope all the books are good too! πŸ™‚

  5. Bea @Bea's Book Nook

    Broken Promise went to a lot of bloggers last week. πŸ™‚ It looks good.

    I imagine your father enjoyed the time away as much as you did. Pity you weren’t able to get more reading done but sometimes a break from reading is good too.

    The Krewe books are good, especially the more recent ones. πŸ™‚

      I really enjoyed the first one so I can’t wait to get to all the other Krewe of Hunters books! πŸ™‚

  6. Kristin @ My ParaHangover

    Everyone is getting Sorcerer to the Crown!!! I must investigate this right now πŸ™‚ You got The Veil, too!!!!!! That’s awesome!!!! I wanted that one AND you got it in audio – fabulousness! I didn’t know Tantor sent actual physical discs! That’s cool!

    It’s nice just to be in the “quiet” of an empty house for a while…

    Kristin @ My ParaHangover recently posted: Sunday Post #54: Are We There Yet?
    • Stormi

      Yeah, I noticed a lot of people have Sorcerer of the Crown too..lol. Yeah, I am excited about The Veil and Tantor usually does mostly downloads so I am surprised that the last two hauls from there have been MP3s. πŸ™‚

    • Stormi

      Yeah, I really liked the first book so I couldn’t help but grab another..lol. I wish I had a pool to swim in. πŸ™‚

  7. Katherine @ I Wish I Lived in a Library

    I’ll be interested to hear what you think of the Heather Graham audio. I tried one and while I really liked it it was abridged so I spent the whole time obsessing about what they could possibly be leaving out. I’d like to retry it. I definitely understand what you mean about your dad. I have a similar issue with my mother. Thankfully I don’t live with her so we get along a lot better now and when she’s driving me crazy I can avoid a phone call or two. I can also sympathize with you about your garden. Mine is looking so sad and it won’t cool down enough for the tomatoes to ripen! Have a great week!

      I can’t wait to get to the Heather Graham book! I am told I will be crushing on the Narrator..so we shall see..lol. The house is in my name now that Dad has retired so I am kind of stuck with him..lol. Oh well, it’s not that bad. πŸ™‚

    • Stormi

      Thanks I hope I enjoy them too. Got a lot of first in series books..lol. πŸ™‚

  8. Kathy

    My mother-in-law lives with us so I understand how you feel. She’ll be gone for a month so it is a nice break! I need to catch up on Heather Graham’s books, they all look good. Have a great week!

    • Stormi

      Oh that will be a nice break. I am enjoying the Heather Graham books, not sure what took me so long..lol.

  9. Christy

    Oh yeah, I understand that. I mean, I love my son, but it really is like a vacation when he leaves for a few days. But he’s getting older now to where he’ll move out, an then I’ll want him back. lol. I want to start the Krewe of Hunters series too. Maybe I should look into the audio.

    • Stormi

      Yeah, some times we needs a breather..lol. If you start KoH I hope you like it too! πŸ™‚ I was told I would have a narrator crush on the guy who does the narration..lol.

    • Stormi

      I have been listening to a lot of audios lately and I really need to be reading my books, especially the review ones..lol. Just on an audio kick..lol. I hope you enjoy your new one. πŸ™‚

    Wonderful book haul! Have fun reading them! I feel for your pain with the dying garden. California has been in a drought for over two years, and everyone’s plants are dying. The state is even paying people to rip up their yards to plant desert friendly plants. I hope you can figure out how to save your plants!

    • Stormi

      Yeah, I really feel sorry for California, things are real bad there. πŸ™

  11. Lark @ The Bookwyrm's Hoard

    Sometimes it’s nice to have a break even from our nearest and dearest…

    Great book haul! I recently tried Heather Graham’s Krewe of Hunters series for the first time and I can tell I’m in trouble. LOL! I have two that I’ve picked up on sale, including book #1, but it’s going to cost me a bundle to get through all of them – but I really liked the most recent one (not yet out) so yes, I’m going to have to read the rest. πŸ™‚
