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.
It’s another one of those weeks where I’m just sitting here trying to remember what I did this week and am coming up empty-handed. I know I was a functioning adult but that’s pretty much all I’ve got, lol. No soccer, no work deadlines, but not much reading either so who knows what I did with my time? I did binge watch season one of Netflix’s Lost in Space remake, so there’s that. That show is fantastic, by the way. I highly recommend it! I also found out that my current favorite TV show, Marvel: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., has been renewed for a sixth season. It will only be 13 episodes and won’t air until Summer 2019 but I wasn’t ready to say goodbye to those characters so I’ll take what I can get at this point.
Reading wise, I did read Dean Koontz’s The Crooked Staircase this week, but didn’t enjoy it so I won’t be writing a full review for it. It’s the third book in a series and I hadn’t read the first two yet, so unfortunately didn’t connect with the main character at all and just wasn’t a big fan of the writing style. Too much focus on specifics about things I didn’t care about, like what specific make/model of gun everyone was using, what specific brand of pepper spray, etc. It didn’t feel like much of anything happened in the book and I found myself skimming a lot. Then it ended on a cliffhanger, which just made the whole book feel like filler or just a bridge to the real action, which will obviously take place in the fourth book. Readers who are already invested in the series will probably enjoy it, but didn’t and have no interest in continuing the series.
I also had to switch up what books I’m planning to read because I forgot I’m taking part in a blog tour for Jay Kristoff’s LIFEL1K3 on Friday. That book needs to move to the front of the line, so I’m pushing Furyborn back a few days and then plan to read Legendary too.
What I really did this week will probably come to me as soon as I publish this post, but for now, I think that’s about it for me. I hope everyone has a wonderful week!
ETA: I knew I would remember as soon as I hit publish….I spent almost all of my free time this week trying to figure out how to make sure my blog is GDPR compliant. I still have no idea if I’ve done everything I need to do, but I’m too tired of thinking about it to do anything more at this point.

For the first time in a while, I didn’t haul any books this week! (I know, I know. Surprised the heck out of me too!)
