weekly wrap-up 12/17

• Earlier this month I mentioned I started watching a series that I later discovered was not renewed for a second season. I was debating whether or not to finish watching the first season (they introduced elements involving time travel and the past and present coming together – would they be able to fully wrap everything up and explain plots in just two episodes?) …eh. The main character underwent a MASSIVE personality change to the point where he seemed like a completely different person, all in an attempt to tie up loose ends. I hate to say it, but I’m disappointed :(

• Who’s ready for super short work weeks?? I’m not the biggest fan of the holidays, but any excuse for extra days off work is a-okay by me!

• Other bloggers are starting to do their round-ups of the best books they’ve read this year. We’re only mid-December! There’s still PLENTY of time to read some amazing novels!! I have a feeling I won’t do my list until the very end of the year, I don’t want to miss out on any fantastic reads!

MISSED SOMETHING THIS WEEK? Just one post: my next Tackling the TBR read! Barbara Vine’s A Dark-Adapted Eye sounded wonderfully dark and moody, full of murder and family secrets. Unfortunately, this short book took far too long to get through and I (a reader who LOVES a full cast of characters) felt completely overwhelmed by the sheer number of names and relations. I wanted a thrilling read about a woman executed for murder, but instead found myself bored. Bored! Here’s to hoping the next TtT read will be better.

Just Between Us by Rebecca Drake
If you follow me on instagram, you already saw my utter delight when this book arrived. Not only is Rebecca a local author, this book is set minutes away from my house. The places she names, the streets her characters walk, it’s lifted straight from my life…if my life involved murder ha. “…a thrilling glimpse into the underbelly of suburbia, where not all neighbors can be trusted“, I started this one last night and will be curled up with it the rest of the day! Thank you, St. Martin’s Griffin!

Flying at Night by Rebecca L. Brown
A double-dose of Rebeccas this week! An autistic boy, a stay-at-home mom, a grandfather left with brain damage after a heart attack. Goodness, I have a feeling this one will be tough, but already reviews are saying it’s excellent. Thank you, Berkley Books!
