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. This post is linked to Stacking the Shelves over at Tynga's Reviews and the Sunday Post over at Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

My Life and Blog

Life: I'm feeling sick as shiiiiiiit. I just do not have the energy to write about life right now...I'll catch up next week. Only 3 more weeks of school! 

Blog and reading: Nothing this week on the blog front. I've started a trillion books over the last couple of weeks, but nothing is really sticking. I hate slumping, but it happens. I really just don't read when I'm sick. I watch bad tv.

New books: I am excited for this small haul. So without further ado, I hope you are all having fabulous weekends!

One of Us is Lying by Karen McManus
The Breakfast Club + murder mystery is a compelling synopsis. I need to get on this one. 
Romancing the Throne by Nadine Jolie Courtney
Two sisters at a prep school fall for a royal. I'm a bit hesitant about the sibling love triangle...but swoon at princes. 
Dawn Breaks Dawn by Sara Larson
Princess. Power. Kingdom. Yada, yada.
House of Furies by Madeline Roux
A maid at a boarding house realizes everything is not as it seems. I like books with photos. 

What I snagged from the library

The Names They Gave Us by Emery Lord
I've only read one book by this author so far, but I am looking forward to this one and like the camp setting. 
It's Always the Husband by Michele Campbell
I love a good twisty mystery, especially when it's about bad female friendships. 

Well that's it for me this week. Feel free to leave a link to whatever weekend post you do (Stacking the Shelves, The Sunday Post, 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 had to DNF Romancing the Throne. It didn't work for me. :( I Look forward to your thoughts though. I am currently reading Always the Husband --- pretty good so far! I hope you enjoy Emery Lord's latest. I thought it was good, but not as good as her other novels. I hope you feel better soon!

  2. It must be going around. I was I'll too this week. At least you got some good books once you feel like reading.

  3. Hope you feel better! I'm really looking forward to One Of Us Is Lying too. And It's Always The Husband does sound good too.

  4. So sorry you're sick! Hope things are looking up for you soon!! I'm excited about Emery Lord's book---I need to make that one a priority.

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!
