The Week In Review #94 ~It’s hot so hot!

June 26, 2016 Misc. 22

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.

Oh my goodness it’s hot, I don’t know how those who are in those states where it’s like 115 or something like that. It’s only in the 90’s here but the heat index is in the 100’s and it’s so hot…ugh. I like warm weather, but I don’t like hot weather. πŸ™ Makes me wish I had a pool!

My garden is taking the brunt of this heat though and the other day the heat index was 112 and boy you could tell my poor little plants all started shriveling and burning…sighs. I gave them a good watering and was very happy to see it rain Thursday night and a little Friday morning. I think we are suppose to get some more rain next week so that will be good as long as it doesn’t rain all week I can handle bits of rain but I hate when that is all it does.

It looks like I was extremely busy on my blog but really most of it was already scheduled except for the Spotlight and Fixin to Die review…lol. I have been really non bloggy this week and not really read much either. πŸ™ I am going to blame it on the heat cause it’s still hot even with our AC…lol.

Oh went and seen Central Intelligence with my dad and I think my IQ went down a bit. It was kind of funny but way more stupid than the commercials lead me to believe. The Rock was real good at being real dumb at times and Kevin Hart is funny but some times just to over the top. I am not a fan of stupid comedies, I just like your standard funny so it was okay but nothing I would watch again.

What you might have missed on my blog

This week I reviewed Murder on Mullberry Bend, The Secret Destiny of Pixie Piper, Fixin to Die, and Sweet Little Lies.

Kathy reviewed Small Wars, Bernie and the Lost Girls, and Borderline.

Books I have added

Netgalley/Edelweiss

Beauty and the Clockwork BeastΒ brightwoodΒ Apartment

And I thought I was doing good by not getting any books this week and boom my email lights up with accepted requests that I forgot all about. πŸ™‚

Audiobooks for review

Well, Tantor had a big release week and WOW, I got like 15 of the audios I have had requested that were in their files and talk about overwhelming. So instead of listing them all you get a pic. πŸ™‚

    I hate the heat! Is it winter yet! The only thing I like about summer is that the kids can go swimming and I love that. They enjoy the water so much. You have a large yard,I think it’s time to get a pool next to the green house πŸ˜‰

    One week, I would love to see you get no books at all πŸ˜‰
    Tantor totally spoiled you this week! Serafina is a great book, I am currently reading the second one but haven’t had a chance to really get into it yet because everyone keeps talking to me. That needs to stop πŸ˜‰

    Have a great week, Stormi! Happy Reading! ox Miss your face!!!

    • Stormi

      Michelle! Did you just blaspheme on my blog and ask for me to get no books at all!!!! Shame on you! πŸ™‚

      I don’t like hot, but I don’t want winter either! I like warm weather and yes I think it’s time for a pool but I probably won’t be getting one..maybe I can catch one on sale at the end of summer and save it back for next year. πŸ™‚

    • Stormi

      I like summer but this year it’s just really hot, normally not so bad. Though I do prefer just warm not hot weather, I am not looking forward to winter as I really hate being cold…lol. I am just never satisfied. πŸ™‚

    I only ever select one or two Tantor audios..I must be doing it wrong. I feel like if I cannot review within 30 days then I cannot accept them..are they ok if I post whenever? Yes the heat is awful…and yep the index is the killer. Hope your week is cooler my friend!

    • Stormi

      Yeah, she said once she has sent them out they are mind to do with as I please. She is even cool about getting me like book one and two if book three is out and I think the series sounds great. I always send her a list of reviews about once every two weeks so that she knows I am reviewing them but she has never told me I need to hurry it up and I have even told her to let me know if I request to many but so far she hasn’t said anything. πŸ™‚ Which is probably not a good thing…lol. πŸ™‚

  3. Charlie @ Girl of 1000 Wonders

    The heat is cranking up! Yesterday wasn’t so bad outside but we did have a lot of cloud cover and random showers of sprinkles, which made the festival bearable. What I don’t like is being outside and my clothes sticking to me. It’s uncomfortable even in your own skin. My little plants are also suffering the sun and getting burnt up. πŸ™

    • Stormi

      We got a good rain last night and it has cooled things down a little and suppose to rain all week so finally a cool down. πŸ™‚ Not thrilled about rain all week but we needed it so I will take it. πŸ™‚

  4. Greg

    It’s been hot here too…ugh. Pretty insufferable this week- but probably nothing compared to the heat in some places. Glad I don’t live in those places lol. And yeah a pool would be nice. πŸ™‚

    Speaking of stupid movies I watched part of San Andreas one night as I was bored- the rock was in that too. I mean it’s not horrible I guess but it’s pretty dumb lol. Is he in every movie now??

    • Stormi

      Yeah, I don’t think I could handle those places that I have seen it being over 100…blah.

      I actually liked San Andreas even thought it had a lot of unbelievable things happening…I like the Rock but just not Central Intelligence just to dumb…lol. He is in a lot of movies now days, it probably pays more than wrestling…lol.

  5. Yvonne

    I wouldn’t like triple digit temps. We’re in the 80’s here and it’s warm. Makes me want to turn to beach reads and pretend I’m really away on vacation.

    Have a great week!

    • Stormi

      We are going to be in the 80’s this week but it will be raining..ugh. We need the rain though so I will live with it and my garden needed it badly. πŸ™‚

  6. Barb (boxermommyreads)

    Heat really bothers me as well. I know I am getting sinus/allergy problems and paid $20.00 for Allegra D yesterday so I know I was desperate. We had horrible storms and I am sure you have seen a lot of WV is flooded and in horrible shape. We were very lucky and didn’t get everything a lot of counties got. However, the storms kept Booker T and us up for 5 hours in which the stress brought on a case of pancreatitis so we at the emergency vet again last night. Glad you enjoyed going to the movies with your father. The Rock kind of bugs me but I like Kevin Hart. Great audio book haul. I grabbed The Last Necromancer too and love the cover. Hope we get some showers this week as well – but no more storms!

    • Stormi

      My sinus/allergies have been bad as well. I hope those meds help! I have seen all the flooding in WV, we have some friends there so I do get worried about those living there. I like rain but not storms, we had a good rain last night which my garden needed. πŸ™‚ OMG when it storms I get no sleep cause I have all my little fur babies plus one big part great dane baby who is scare of the storm and thinks he should sleep on my bed and takes up the whole thing!!!

  7. Lola

    I don’t like too warm weather either, here it’s been warm, but luckily not too warm yet. I hope your plants are doing a bit better after some rain.

    I often forget about the pending requests on netgalley especially if it has been a few weeks. I have one request pending for weeks now and almost forget it’s still there.

    You got a nice stack of audio’s! Thanks for letting me know about The Last Necromancer, I was curious about that one and didn’t realize it was free. I hope you’ll have a great week!

  8. Kathy

    It’s hot in CA too but at least you got rain. We probably won’t be seeing rain for a couple of months. You got a lot of Tantor audios and I missed all of those. I have to look at the release list closer lol. I hope you enjoy all of your new books and have a great week!

  9. Melanie Simmons @mlsimmons

    I thought it was hot here, but I think you have it worse. I also thought I was overwhelmed with audios, but you have me beat there too. I’m five deep. I did get Paige Tyler and Eve Langlais too. I’m listening to the SWAT book now. I’m only like an hour in. I hope you enjoy all your books.

  10. Laura Thomas

    That’s a lot of audibles, Stormi. I wish I could get the physical ones. I don’t like having to listen to them on my computer so don’t do many. It sure is hot and I’m dreading going back to work today. LOL I work outside and it gets draining. Yeah for some rain. My gardens were looking wilted too.

  11. S. J. Pajonas

    I love love love summer, it’s my favorite season, but yeah, 90s and 100s for heat is sometimes just too much. I hope you get some cooler weather soon! I saw it was like 120 in the SE last week. Yikes!

  12. Anna @ Adventures with a Book Nerd

    Your weather sounds wonderful! The low for me is 85 (which only happens during the middle of the night), and the high is 107. My brother is coming to visit from the east coast, and he is absolutely going to melt. I hope that you stay cool, and have a good week! πŸ™‚

  13. Tracy (@Cornerfolds)

    Haha! I saw Central Intelligence last week too and I thought it was funny, but I’m not really into comedies. I only went for The Rock! XD I hope you enjoy your books! Serafina is great!
