In My Mailbox is a weekly event hosted by Kristi over at The Story Siren. Stacking the Shelves is a weekly event hosted on Tynga’s Reviews. Here we can share what new books we’ve picked up this past week.
I picked up a few things from the library this past week.
Chomp by Carl Hiaasen
I’m borrowing the audiobook of this one and it is narrated by James Van Der Beek! I wasn’t sure how he would be as a narrator, but he is really good! I’m enjoying this a lot. I love Carl Hiaasen.
The Dead and Buried by Kim Harrington
I actually was going to buy the book from Barnes & Noble on Tuesday (its release day), but B&N didn’t have it in (even though online it said it was in stock at the store!) I went to B&N, and they said they didn’t have it. Annoying. But I did find it at the library, so yay! I love ghost stories and Kim Harrington!
What new books did you get this week?
- I’m on vacation! Well, actually I’m on staycation but it is totally awesome. I’m off work until Tuesday. I’ve already been able to get a lot of things done. And today I am devoting to house work, and READING (yeah it deserves ALLCAPS).
- My dad came over Thursday to help me paint my breakfast nook. There was some problems with the paint that was there. The people that lived here before I moved in painted over wallpaper, so the paint was all chipping! We had to scrape it all off, and then put plaster (or something like that) over it. But it is a really small area. And we painted the two walls that didn’t have the chipping paint. My goals is for shelves to be installed on one wall for all my books! It is a perfect spot. When it is all done (which will probably be in a few weeks) I will take a photo and share.
- I’m attempting to make chili. I am not the best in the kitchen, but even my mom can make chili and she is worse in the kitchen than me. So hopefully it turns out tasty.
