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.

Life and Blog

Life: This week was very rough, and I'm finding myself unable to talk about it right now. So this is just going to be about books and I'll catch up with you all next week.

Blog and reading:TTT and a WoW this week. I'm currently reading Ramona Blue (after setting it aside for awhile). I'm actually loving it now that I picked it back up. I snagged Into the Water this week, though, so imagine my attention is going to shift to that. 

New books: I have some titles this week that I am quite excited about. So without further ado, I hope you're all having fabulous weekends!

The Love Interest by Cale Dietrich
I've been excited to start this trope-busting book. I adore this cover.
The Best Kind of Magic by Crystal Cestari
A girl who can see "true love" falls for a boy who isn't her soul mate...or something. 
Grit Gillian French
This realistic fictional story follows the girl dubbed the "town slut" after her best friend disappears. 
New Boy by Tracy Chevalier
Have you read any of the Hogath Shakespeare books? I haven't yet (and cannot flipping wait for Gillian Flynn's take on Hamlet). This is a modern retelling of Othello. 
#antisocial by Jillian Blake
The phones of students at a prep school get hacked and secrets get revealed--which sounds like a very familiar storyline. 
Grace and the Fever by Zan Romanoff
A girl falls for the lead of a famous band...which also sounds like a very familiar storyline.

What I snagged from the library


Into the Water by Paula Hawkins

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. Sorry to hear that you've had a tough week. I hope things get better for you soon.

    The Love Interest is one that I'm really interested in. I haven't seen too many reviews for it yet but after I read a couple I will decide if I'm going to buy it or not. lol!

  2. The Love Interest does sound fun!

  3. Sorry about the tough week, hope this week gets better!
    Nice stack! Hope you enjoy reading them all!

  4. I am also eagerly writing to read Into The Water! I need to get it from the library as I am on a book buying freeze right now. I find that books are a great distraction from the chaos that can go on in life. I hope you have a better week next week. Hugs!

  5. Ugh, I feel you with the rough week. I had a rough month. Hope it gets better for both of us soon! Also, I got The Love Interest too and am reading it soon!

  6. Awesome haul of books this week. I hope you love all of them.

    Grace @ Books of Love

  7. I got The Best Kind of Magic and The Love Interest this week too. Hope you have a better week this week.

  8. I picked The Love Interest for my book of the month club, I can't wait til I get it because I bet it's gonna be so good. It sounds super interesting. You got a lot of good books to review! Can't wait to see what you think!

  9. I'm reading the Love Interest now (or I will be starting it once I finish browsing blogs lol) hope we both enjoy. The Best Kind of Magic looks super cute!

  10. Sorry to hear you had a rough week. I hope everything is ok. I can't wait to get my hands on a copy of Into the Water. I am on the waiting list at my library. I hope it is as good as Girl on the Train.

  11. Sorry to hear you are having a rough time. *hugs* Ooh, that's a great snag from the library. I'm hoping my turn is soon!

  12. Hope things get better for you soon! In the meantime, maybe books and blogging can be a nice escape. Hope this week is better than last!

  13. I was like the last one to post this Sunday update, lol! Just got back home. Better late than never, right?
    You got loooooads of books! Makes me feel better, cause I went on a review copy requesting spree myself :D
    I hope you have a good relaxing week now, because it sounds like you could use it :)

  14. I do want to read Into the Water, and Grit as well. I've seen a few good reviews for that now...

    Hope this week is better. :)

  15. I want to try Into the Water on audio. I really hope the life events get better. I will be thinking of you.

  16. Oh, no. I hope everything is okay, Natalie. Here's to a better week. :(

  17. The Love Interest sounds like it's going to be great. I'm listening to Into the Water on audiobook right now - hope you'll like it!

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!
