Weekly Rewind
The new books on my shelves and my week in a nutshell.

Throughout my student teaching semester I was using my weekend post as a way to let people know what's going on in my life, so I've decided to rename my weekend post because this feature is more personal than just what books I've received. The Weekly Rewind will be about what's going on with me and my blog, as well as about the books I've added to my shelves.

Life and Blog

Life: This is going to be a quick post. I thought my husband was going to come tomorrow, but he showed up today. Yay! It's supposed to be freezing here tomorrow, so I'm not sure what we are going to end up doing, but I'm just happy that I get to spend the weekend with him...without having to do the drive home. I'll be back to my rambling self next week, I'm sure.

Blog and rereading: Just a WoW this week. I finished my reread of The List this week and made progress on The Magicians. I've been listening to Illuminae, but am debating switching over to the regular book.

New books: I have a handful of books to share with you this week. So without further ado, I hope you are all having fabulous weekends!

This psychological thriller set in PA sounds amazing. I plan on picking this one up next.

A young fanfic author turns her attention to the popular kids in her school.

What I snagged from the library

25663637 18801694 25241456 

Books:
When We Collided by Emery Lord
My husband was kind of nice enough to swing by the PA library where this was on hold for me. I can't wait to read Emery Lord's latest.
We Can Work it Out by Elizabeth Eulberg
I finished a reread of The Brokenhearts Club a few weeks ago, but haven't yet read this sequel.
Audio:
I read and loved this back in 2012 and am willing to bet the audio is awesome. I don't know why I haven't listened to it yet.
Movie:
Spotlight
I can't wait to watch this.

Well that's it for me this week. Feel free to leave a link to whatever weekend post you do (Stacking the Shelves, In My Mailbox, etc). I love to see what books people have recently snagged and especially enjoy hearing about my fellow bloggers' weeks. I hope you are all having a fabulous weekend!

  1. I am really looking forward to reading When We Collied as well. I hope you have a great weekend with your husband (even if the weather is less than ideal...ugh, we are supposed to get snow here in PA!).

  2. Nice haul! I have The Darkest Corners on my TBR list, so I will have to keep an eye out for your review. Enjoy your weekend with your husband and stay warm. (We woke up to snow at our house this morning).

  4. Enjoy the time with your husband. Have you seen the movie Me Earl and the Dying Girl? I really want to. I love Olivia Cooke in Bates Motel and can't wait to see her in this.

Hello, there! Thanks for taking the time to comment. I read each and every one and will do my best to respond--usually on your blog instead of on mine. I will, however, always answer direct questions. Due to serious time restraints, this blog is now an award free zone, but I appreciate the thought!
