Weekly Recap #50: Week of 4/22 – 4/28
It’s time for another weekly recap post of all things happening on and off the blog. This week I’ll be linking to the Sunday Post, which is hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer and to Stacking the Shelves, which is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews.
Now that my tax deadlines have passed, life is getting back to a more normal pace, so I’m excited about that. Work was so quiet this past week because most of the CPAs were on vacation, so quiet in fact that I was able to squeeze in an extra book this week that I wasn’t planning to read. I listened to the audiobook of Geekerella, which was a super cute read, by the way.
This week my top reading priority if Song of Blood and Stone as I’m on the blog tour for this book and my turn comes up this Friday. I meant to read it this weekend but got so engrossed in I Stop Somewhere that I couldn’t put that one down long enough to jump over to my tour book.
Not too much else has been going on. I tried to get caught up on my blog visits this week. If I missed you though, yell at me so I can stop by. I have to confess that I had gotten so far behind as my deadline got closer that I ended up losing track of who I had visited and who I hadn’t. I suffer from C.R.S. (Can’t Remember Shit).
Outside of reading and blogging, about the only other exciting thing I can remember that happened was that The 100 finally came back. I feel like I’ve been waiting for that show to come back for ages so it was fantastic to finally have a new episode to watch. I watched that and then I binge watched season 1 of the Netflix remake of One Day at a Time. I liked that show a lot more than I was expecting to and Rita Moreno is absolutely hilarious in it.
I think that’s about it for me. I hope everyone has a wonderful week!

WHAT I’M READING THIS WEEK
STACKING THE SHELVES
I Stop Somewhere was so sad. I cried and raged, when I read that book. I loved Geekerella, and am so excited there is going to be a sequel.
OMG, yes! I Stop Somewhere was incredible but also just emotionally draining. That was what made me randomly decide to stop and read Geekerella. I needed an emotional pick me up before I go back and finish the other book, lol.
I’ve heard The 100 is good. Enjoy it. And glad work is winding down a bit. Have a good week and enjoy your books!
Oh yes, The 100 is sooo good. I’m kind of obsessed with it, haha.
BAHAHA, I totally suffer from Can’t Remember Shit, too. I literally can’t even remember what I had for breakfast yesterday! I’ll be looking forward to your thoughts on Geekerella, which I’ve been wanting to read for quite a bit already!
– Aimee @ Aimee, Always
I’m glad I’m not the only one! LOL!
Geekerella looks so cute and I’ve been meaning to read it for ages. A One Day at a Time remake? Like the ODAAT sitcom from the 70s/80s?! I used to love that show! Had no idea there was a remake, though.
Yep! It’s a remake this time it’s a Cuban American family and Rita Moreno plays the grandmother. I’m not usually big on remakes/reboots but it’s really funny!
I’m glad you’re enjoying some more free time now that work isn’t so hectic. Getting more books in is always a plus. 🙂
I won an ARC of Believe Me also, I love the cover!! And I haven’t read Dean K. in a long time but that one looks really good. Nice haul!! Have a good week!
This will actually be my first Dean Koontz read. My mom has been a fan of his for years so I decided I should check him out. Thanks, hope you have a great week as well 🙂
Can’t Remember Shit is so relatable 😂
Ah… I knew there had to be a complicated medical term for my memory problems – CRS just about sums it up… I’ve just started Song of Blood and Stone and so far, I’m thoroughly enjoying it – it’s quickly drawn me into the world. Have a great week, Suzanne.
I just started Song of Blood and Stone today on my lunch break and so far I’m enjoying it too. I really like Jasminda.
Oooo, I want to start reading Brightly Burning! I just read a really positive review for the book and I’m pretty sure I’m going to love it. I hope you enjoy all of your new books!
Have a fabulous week. =)
Check out my post!
I can’t wait to start Brightly Burning. I haven’t read any reviews for it yet but I just have a good feeling about it. Hope you have a great week too!
I’m starting Geekerella next! I’ve heard wonderful things about it, so I’m really excited!! I also want to read Letting Go of Gravity. <3 It looks like you have a great week planned. I hope you enjoy Song of Blood & Stone more than I did, and I cannot wait to see your thoughts! 🙂
Do You Dog-ear?
I thought Geekerella was super cute so I hope you enjoy it!
Yay for having a quiet work week and getting an extra book read! Hopefully you’ll like Song of Blood and Stone for the book tour! And oh, you reminded me I need to check on some shows to see if they’ve started up again yet lol.
Right? The way they do these split seasons now, I feel like I never know when my shows are on hiatus or have started back up, lol.
CRS lol… I think I may have that too. 🙂
Yay for the 100! Wasn’t that season premiere awesome? I have a feeling S5 is gonna be great.
Brightly Burning looks promising!
The 100 got off to such an amazing start last week. I can’t wait to watch the next episode. I have a feeling this might be the most intense season yet!
I have a copy of Song og Blood and Stone I want to get to so I can’t wait to hear what you think when you read it!
I just started it today and am really enjoying it so far!
I’m excited to talk about The Way You Make Me Feel!
I feel you about struggling to blog hop, I think this is my first time in over a week. I don’t know how this past week got so busy!
The Way You Make Me Feel was a pretty cute read for me, although I didn’t like it much at all at first because of the main character. She really grew on me though, thankfully.
HAHA now I know what’s wrong with me! I totally have C.R.S. symptoms as well 😀
So happy The 100 was back this week, it’s true that it felt like we’ve been waiting for this forever already!
Looking forward to your reviews on The Way You Make Me Feel and Geekerella 🙂
The 100 was so good. It really hit me just how much I had missed it as I was sitting there watching. I have a feeling this season is going to be the best yet!
Lol CRS 😀 apt name, and I believe it happens a lot to me too 😀 I hope you get time to wind down now 🙂 have a great week!
Thanks, you too!
I love the cover for Geekerella and hear so many good things about it! Must add it to the wishlist. Have a great week!
Geekerella was such a good read. One of the more unique retellings I’ve come across. I hope you enjoy it if you read it 🙂
I am glad things are quieting down for you, Suzanne. I am so behind on The 100. I’m not even sure where I’ve left off . . . I am really curious about Olivia Twist and Believe Me. I hope you enjoy The Cater Street Hangman. I was really into Perry’s series for quite a while there, but somehow got out of reading them. I love her attention to details of the time period. And Charlotte and Thomas are great characters.
