Week In Review

April 16 – 22

What a week! We’ve gone from a wild ice storm on Monday to sunny and temperatures above double digits this weekend. I got out in the fresh air yesterday and walked around for a bit enjoying the weather, then got home and promptly spent the rest of the day reading and watching New Girl on Netflix.

And what was I reading on? My new Kindle Paperwhite! It arrived yesterday and I love it!

I love this case too, which my husband surprised me with, because I can stand the Kindle up at three different angles, and when it opens and closes it automatically wakes up / puts the Kindle to sleep, which is cool.

New books:

I bought a few e-books this past week that I’m really looking forward to reading:

Sunburn, Laura Lippmann (I tried this on audio but I think I can only do audiobook versions of books I have already read);

One of Us is Lying, Karen M. McManus (my next book club read); and

Hex, Thomas Olde Heuvelt (I’ve heard this is really creepy).

I also pre-ordered two books for my Kobo:

The Witch Elm, Tana French; and

Any Man, Amber Tamblyn.

I LOVE Tana French’s Dublin Murder Squad series, and even though this upcoming book is not part of that series, a new Tana French book is cause for excitement. It isn’t out until October, but I couldn’t resist pre-ordering.

The Amber Tamblyn book comes out in June I believe, so I don’t have to wait as long to read that one.

Books read:

I finished two books this week! I read a romance called Sweet Filthy Boy by Christina Lauren which was definitely steamy but also really sweet and funny. My friend Emilie has recommended the two Christina Lauren books I’ve read this year and I liked both of them!

I also finished reading an ARC of Undead Girl Gang by Lily Anderson and I loved it! It’s out in May and I definitely recommend checking it out. It was funny, kind of creepy, and super focused on female friendships. It was sooo good.

Current reads:

I’m still reading Josh Malerman’s Unbury Carol. It took me a little time to get into it but now I’m loving it and I will be trying to finish it today.

I also started reading an a-ARC of Erin Bowman’s Contagion on my new Kindle!

Reviews:

I posted three reviews on the blog this week: Dread Nation by Justina Ireland and Gunslinger Girl by Lyndsay Ely, and in the Cozy Corner, I posted my sister’s review of Victoria Gilbert’s A Murder for the Books.

I really want to get back to Unbury Carol so I can finish it, and then I’ll probably be spending some time with Netflix (New Girl or Brooklyn 99).

Happy Sunday!
