Week In Review
November 5 – 18
It’s still November but our Christmas tree is up. It’s pretty and makes me happy and I love it.
I haven’t done much reading lately. Work has been very busy and I’ve started playing Skyrim and Guild Wars 2 again, which has been taking up lots of my free time. I’ve also been watching a lot of Shirley’s Skyrim videos on Youtube. She is 82 years old and her videos are delightful. I enjoy putting her Deadeye Gang playlist on while I read or do some blogging.
But I’m going to try and make some more time for reading, since I’ve fallen a bit behind again on my Goodreads challenge!
I’ve received a bunch of e-ARCs in the past couple of weeks for 2019 YA books that I’m really excited about!
The Missing Season,Gillian French;
With the Fire on High, Elizabeth Acevedo;
Girls of July, Alex Flinn;
On the Come Up, Angie Thomas;
The Wise and the Wicked, Rebecca Podos;
The Beholder, Anna Bright;
Let Me Hear a Rhyme, Tiffany D. Jackson;
Ordinary Girls, Blair Thornburgh;
A Dress for the Wicked, Autumn Krause; and
Fan the Fame, Anna Priemaza.
Thank you Harper!
I’ve read four books since my last Week in Review post: two romance novels, a YA e-ARC, and a comic:
The Wedding Date, Jasmine Guillory;
When a Scot Ties the Knot, Tessa Dare;
Nightingale, Amy Lukavics; and
Ms. Marvel Vol. 2, G. Willow Wilson.
I’m reading Julie McElwain’s Caught in Time, which is the third book in her Kendra Donovan series. I loved the first two, so I have high hopes for this one.
I’m also trying to read A Criminal Magic by Kelly Lee, which has been on my TBR for a long time, but I borrowed it from the library via Libby which means I can only read it on my phone. I really don’t like reading on my phone all that much, and I keep forgetting that I have this ebook checked out, so I haven’t been picking this book up too much yet.
Lots of reviews these past couple of weeks:
Thread Herrings, Lea Wait;
In a Cottage In a Wood, Cass Green;
‘Twas the Knife Before Christmas, Jacqueline Frost;
Death and Daisies, Amanda Flower; and
Force of Nature, Jane Harper.
Time for some reading and then some video games by the Christmas tree! Happy Sunday!
