The Week In Review #56

October 4, 2015 Memes 29

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.

During this week I kicked off my Monsters, Madmen, Mayhem. Oh my! event and I hope you all stop by my blog and check out the post, reviews and giveaways that will be happening. One thing I learned this year is plan more ahead…lol. I am thinking I need to start three months ahead to make sure I can get in good book reviews while still reading books to post that are not for MMM and keep things running more smoothly. My next event I am thinking of doing is Getting Cozy in February and featuring lots of cozy mysteries. πŸ™‚ I am on such a horror/suspense/mystery kick right now it’s like all I want to read…lol. (But can’t cause I got other books to review as well…lol)

Other than being busy on the blog I haven’t don’t much else worthy of chatting about…lol.

  • The Suffering is okay but I do hope it starts to pick up now that the story is in Japan.
  • Heart-Shaped Box is kind of creepy but I haven’t gotten far as I am just reading in a bit before bed.
  • From Bad to Cursed I just started but have high hopes for it as I liked the first book. πŸ™‚

    I will definitely be stopping by to see your October posts! And Cozy February sounds good, I’ve been reading a few cozies and a lot of mysteries…

    Before the Storm looks like a good suspenseful read.

      Oh I do hope you stop by and like some of my Oct. post. πŸ™‚ I have been reading a lot of cozies and mysteries as well!

    • Stormi

      Yeah, I am learning that events can be a bit overwhelming though I do enjoy them!:)

    I like the look of some of your new books Stormi! (A few appeal there!) I’m not sure about the Monsters, Madman and Mayhem thing though as I’m a bit of a wuss when it comes to horror etc.

    You had a huge week though and I’m behind in my blog reading as usual so off to check out some of your posts.

    I like your idea of a genre themed month, although I can imagine how much work it involves. I participated in a sci-fi month challenge last year and it sure took a lot of effort to have enough posts int hat genre and read other genres as well. I am finally getting around to reading some cozy mysteries, although I haven’t really found my way in the genre yet, two 3 stars books so far.

    I also got that Halloween book for free. I can’t wait to read Dark Heart of Magic, but it’s hard to read a book when you’re in the mood for another genre. That’s why I don’t do many tours anymore as it always seem to happen that I am not in the mood for the book I have to read. I hope you have a great week.

      I would like to recommend the Tourist Trap Mysteries by Lynn Cahoon as I really enjoy them. I am also enjoying the Witch City Mysteries by Carol J. Perry and Lighthouse Library Mysteries by Eva Gates. πŸ™‚ I have found some that were only a 3 star and that is a bummer but for the most part I have enjoyed the cozies I have read so far. Hope you find some good ones. πŸ™‚

      Yeah, reading something when your not in the mood is hard…I don’t sign up for many tours either for that very reason and kind of wish I hadn’t signed up for this one. πŸ™

      • Lola

        Thanks for the recommendations! I already have the Tourist Trap Mysteries on my to-read list, probably you recommended it to me before. I added the first Witch City Mysteries book and the first Lighthouse Library Mystery to my to-read list as well.

        One of the 3 stars books had a good mystery, but I had some other issues with. The other one was just okay, nothing outstanding. It’s a shame you’re reaidng that book while you’re not in the mood for it, sometiems I feel like I woudl enjoy a book mroe if I could read it at another time.

    I LOVE the idea of Cozy February! That’s fabulous and there’s so many fun options that you won’t have a shortage of books (though is there ever a shortage of books?). I need to get better about the planning ahead. I’m doing better than I was but there’s still room for improvement. You killed it on new books this week. I love weeks like that though it’s not very nice to my TBR. Have a great week!

      Yeah, I don’t think I will ever have a shortage of books!:) I am going to start planning February in November…going to be better prepared this time. πŸ™‚

  5. Michelle @Because Reading

    If only I could plan ahead, I think that will be one of my goals next year. Now if I can only stick with it that would be awesome.

    Cozy February sounds fun! I am not a cozy reader but I have been in a horror mood just need to get through a few before I can actually get to them.

    have a great week, stormi! I will have your post text this week. I am working on it! Happy Reading! ox

    • Stormi

      It’s so a goal for next year!

      Might need a button for my Cozy event. πŸ˜‰ Still trying to decide exactly how I am going to do it. πŸ™‚

      Can’t wait to see your post! πŸ™‚

    • Stormi

      I will be having some lighter horror reviews going on too so they won’t be too scary…lol. πŸ™‚

    • Stormi

      Yeah, got to many new ones…lol. Got to be good for a while if I can. πŸ™‚ I worked hard getting my ratio up like three or four percent now it’s going back down! πŸ™

  6. Kathy

    I didn’t plan ahead this year for October so I know how you feel. Cozy February sounds like fun and I might participate. Have a great week with all your new books!
