Weekly Rewind ~ 3.26.16

Posted March 27, 2016 by Grace @ Rebel Mommy Book Blog in Features, Weekly Rewind / 44 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.
It is good to be back guys!! I needed the time off but missed blogging. It’s was a crazy couple weeks off. We had my daughter’s birthday, her friends party and the family party. Glad that is over!! March Madness also started which is a HUGE deal in my house. The highlight so far was Indiana beating Kentucky. Oh that and getting tickets to the Sweet 16 in Philly 🙂 Exciting times for my husband (and me too!!) Unfortunately that game didn’t go so well last night. Still we had fun being there. I am also very happy to have some nicer weather and be able to get outside with the kids. I think it helped et rid of the blahs. Hope everyone had a great week!

  1. I’m glad your week was a huge blast! So many parties lol And yay for nice weather. Everyone has been saying that these past few days.
    What did you think of The Leaving Season and The Passenger?
    I forgot to add Glass Sword to mine!!! A friend of mine lent it to me this past week. Idk when I’ll read it but she gave me the book until May lol so I have time to read it.
    Have a good week!

    • Of course I say nicer weather and today it’s pouring!! I liked The Leaving Season and The Passenger but didn’t love them. I got the audio of Glass Sword from the library so I hope I get to it before I have to return it. Have a great week!

  2. Hey welcome back! Glad you guys got to the game even if it wasn’t the right result. 🙁 There’s nothing like being there. Hope your weather holds too- still waiting for it to warm up here but it’s a little better 🙂 Can’t be long right??

  3. YAY! You’re back and the break worked! I love it when I miss blogging!!! I used to LOVE March Madness and OMG, Indiana beat Kentucky??? HUGE!!! Congrats!! I can’t imagine how fun GOING to a game was, all that B-ball love. Crazy. Ohio State didn’t dance this year so I didn’t even bother to follow along. My hubs doesn’t like basketball so ever since I got married 10 years ago, I fell out of the habit of following. It’s Hockey time!!! 😉 BTW, are you going to BEA in May? It’s in Chicago this year so I thought you might.

    • That game was huge! Going to the sweet sixteen game was awesome being in that environment but man they got smoked! My husband got me into college basketball but I love it now so it’s ok. I am not going to BEA because I am actually in NJ so NYC is better for me. But I love Chicago so I WISH I was going!!

  4. I have never been a big Basketball fan, but I love hearing about how everyone does March madness. lol How did you like Never Never??

    And HIM! I adored it and i hope you love it!

  5. I am glad that you are back but it sounds like you had some much needed time off. My husband got to go to some of the early basketball games when they played in St. Louis. I love football and baseball and enjoy hockey as well but basketball has never been my thing. It looks like you got a lot of reading done and picked up some great books. Have a great week, Grace!

  6. What a great week! I love the look of your books…I enjoyed The Passenger and Pretty Baby. I am so eager to read Kubica’s Don’t Cry Now, which is patiently waiting for me on my stacks.

    Glad you had a wonderful time on your daughter’s birthday…and with family moments around March Madness.

    My weekly updates today are on my Rainy Days and Mondays blog.

  7. Welcome back!! I’m looking forward to your review of Never Never. I have it, but I’ve had a couple bad experiences with Colleen Hoover so I’m holding off… I also have Glass Sword but I haven’t read the whole thing yet. It started pretty slow but I hope you love it! Have an amazing week! 😀

    • Never Never the first one I liked – but it went downhill from there for me. I feel like they had no plan on where the story would go and that third book was just not satisfying at all. I am hoping i get to the Glass Sword soon – I have the audio so hopefully that will help with the slow start. Have a great week!

  8. Glad to see you back from your break but it sounds like you weren’t exactly sitting around filing your nails and eating bon bons. LOL We don’t follow sports much at my house but my husband does keep track of March Madness. Doesn’t always watch the games, but he follows the progress. As a NC native he’s pretty stoked to see that UNC is in the Final Four! I just recently bought Never Never Part 3 so now I can marathon books 2 and 3. Book 1 left me with NO idea what was going on. But I sure did like Silas. 🙂 I received A Stone in the Sea in one of my Bookworm Boxes not too long ago and it looks so good!

    • Yeah it was a break from blogging but not from life! Stinking UNC got us knocked out! But we have them winning our bracket so at this point we are rooting for them 🙂 I can’t wait to see what you think of the rest of the Never Never books. I was really disappointed in the last book. I do love Silas though. Have a great week!!
