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!

New books:

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!

Books read:

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.

Current reads:

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.

Reviews:

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!
