Weekly Rewind ~ 1.24.16

Posted January 24, 2016 by Grace @ Rebel Mommy Book Blog in Weekly Rewind / 63 Comments

Weekly Rewind is a weekly feature where I will recap posts, books read, books bought and borrowed and whatever else from the past week. I’ve linked to The Sunday Post hosted by  Caffeinated Book Reviewer and Stacking the Shelves hosted by  Team Tynga’s Reviews.
Pretty boring week here. It was nice that my husband had off on Monday and actually took the day. He spent the day with the kids at his family’s and I got to clean!!! Yup I was thrilled for that. I never have uninterrupted time to just get stuff done around the house so it was welcome. Other than that it has been cold and there has been some snow. And by some snow, I mean a freaking blizzard. Plus my son got sick yesterday so he has been attached to me all day and night. I feel so bad for him. Also, I am so ready for spring….

Quote of the Week

“There is no “right” way to be. I am flawed and imperfect, but am uniquely me. I don’t fit in and probably never will. And I don’t have to try to anymore. That other person was a lie. And let’s face it, normal is boring. We all have something to offer the world in some way, but by not being our authentic selves, we are robbing the world of something different, something special.”
― Leah Remini, Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology

  1. Some interesting reads for you last week Grace – look forward to your reviews… I hope you’ve survived the blizzards. We’ve been seeing them on the news here. I’m keen for summer to be over so perhaps there should only be two seasons… spring and autumn!?

  2. Oh man, Nereyda showed me the GR page for the new TJR book and it sounds so torturous in a really good way! I’ll be looking forward to your thoughts. I want to read Heart-Shaped Hack too. It looks good!
    I hope your son feels better!
    Happy reading and have a lovely week!

  3. Yay for having the house to yourself! Isn’t it amazing how much you can get done when you don’t have interruptions! Sorry to hear that you little one is sick….hope he feels better soon.

    I can’t wait for your review of Troublemaker. I don’t read very many celebrity memoirs but I am tempted by this one. It looks like you picked up some great books and once again your photos are lovely. Have a great week!

  4. Aw I really like Leah Remini! I really love that quote! <3

    That's great you got a day to get things done! Those are always so nice when you have no distractions! I'm sorry to hear about your son! I hope he feels better soon! Poor thing. Being sick is just no fun!

    Heart Shaped Hack looks really good and I'm super excited for TJR's book!

    And how did I miss your 99 Days review? I need to go read that. I've had that book on my TBR forever.

    Have a great week Grace!

  5. Hope you guys aren’t too buried in snow! I’ve been watching the news a bit and it looks pretty bad out there. We got lucky here as it all went south of us… but it’s cold too. Enough winter already!

    I saw on your other post that you’re taking Jessica Jones a little slower. I can relate, it’s kinda a dark series so I can see taking breaks. I finished it and liked it but it wasn’t my favorite. I’m liking Orphan Black right now, I just finished S1. I wasn’t sure at first, the first couple episodes I didn’t really like the characters, but by midpoint the show was kinda hilarious. Wasn’t expecting the humor!

    Amyway have a nice week! 🙂

    • We had 2 feet so that stinks but we didn’t lose power so that was big. Now just dealing with the ugly snow and roads. I loved Orphan Black – especially that first season. I mean Alison and Felix are my favorite characters maybe ever. I liked the second season and I still have the third to get to it. I am waiting for it go up on Prie. Have a great week!

  6. I’m so sorry your little guy is sick! Aren’t they just so cuddly though, how they like to get you sick, too! Especially after you de-germed the house, too!!!

    I’d be interested in Remini’s book! VERY interested… I need to read non-fiction!! Awesome audios this week, too!!

    Stay healthy!!!

  7. How was The Mystery of Hallow Places? Never mind, don’t tell me. Just know I am looking forward to your review.
    Sorry to hear that your son was sick, but yeah for getting stuff done around the house. I think this “blizzard” dropped the first real snow of the season on us here in CT. I am ready for more snow. I like the snow because I missed out on it for 30+ years.

  8. I just finished The Wrath and the Dawn today and it was so good! It started out a bit slow, but it quickly picked up and I loved the writing. I can’t wait for the sequel. It will be released on my birthday. Happy Birthday to me. 🙂 After seeing this post, I immediately went to Edelweiss and requested the ARC for the newest Taylor Jenkins Reid book. Fingers crossed that I get approved! After reading Maybe In Another Life, I really need to read everything she has ever written.

  9. I’m really wanting to read the Leah Remini book. I’ve always liked her and this book sounds interesting. I’m curious about the audio. I normally can get to audio books faster but that queue is starting to fill up and at least 2 of those books are your fault! Hope your little one is better. Sick kids are the worst and mine at least is the worst patient. Have a great week!

  10. Funny how you can get excited even over uninterrupted cleaning time. lol Any uninterrupted time is a good thing. 🙂 So sorry to hear you son is sick. 🙁 Hope he is feeling better today. I doubt I will read the Leah Remini book but I bet it was interesting. She’s also seemed very outspoken so I’m sure she had plenty to say. Great quote from her, too. And I’m super excited to read Heart-Shaped Hack. How cool that you won a copy! I just love Tracey Garvis Graves.
