Weekly Rewind ~ 1.31.16

Posted January 31, 2016 by Grace @ Rebel Mommy Book Blog in Weekly Rewind / 50 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.
My son is either sick and no one else caught it or he is teething pretty serious causing the snot. Either way this week has sucked. Also, my battery dies in the middle of the week and no one was around so we were stuck in again and they both missed their classes. My dad came over after work and saved the day though 🙂 The bright spot is today when my family and I are out to dinner to celebrate my grandmother’s 90th birthday.

  1. Aww sorry it was a rough week! Hopefully this one is better. Great post on audio- I’ve struggled with audio (my attention tends to wander) but I hadn’t thought about it in terms of DNF’s. Maybe I’d like certain books more listening to them. Something to think about…

    Happy birthday to your grandmother, hope you guys have a great dinner. 90 is awesome!

    Have a super week!

  2. Oh boy, sounds like a bit of a bumpy week. Hopefully this week will be much smoother for you! I just finished Not If I See You First! I wrote my review last night, it will go up later this week, though. I’m curious on what you thought about it. Will check that out! Also, I really want to read Felicia Day’s novel!

  3. Aww poor baby. I hope he feels better soon!
    Ahh! I see two of my favorite reads in your haul this week! Dangerous Girls and Summer of Chasing Mermaids are so good!
    Enjoy your books this week, Grace!

  4. Hope this next week is a better one for you! I have been having one of those months instead of one of those weeks, sigh..
    Looks like some good books there in your stack. I also have Try Not to Breathe here to pick up soon. The Railwayman’s Wife looks like it would appeal to me. Enjoy!

  5. Oh you got so many books I want to read! I really want to read the summer of chasing mermaids. My library card expired before I could renew it.

    I totally broke my book buying ban but I am definitely going to stop in February and work on lowering my TBR.

  6. Sorry this past week sucked Grace! Hopefully things are better next week! Not sure if a cold or teething would be better for your son though… both probably come and go a bit!

    Keen to hear what you thought of Try Not To Breathe so will keep an eye out for your review!

  7. Aw! I’m sorry Grace! I hope your son feels better! Poor thing! Yay for your dad coming to help! That sounds like my Dad too. LOL. I am super excited for you to read Second Chance Summer- if you’re a Daddy’s girl like me, it will definitely affect you! And I can’t wait to hear what you think of The Summer of Chasing Mermaids!

  8. Ugh, sounds like a rough week between the sickness/teething and the dead battery. Sorry to hear it, Grace. I hope the dinner was a lot of fun! And that this week is much better! I have heard so many raves for Morgan Matson in general and Second Chance Summer in particular but have yet to read anything by her. Crazy considering contemporary is *my* genre!
