Well hello, beautiful people! How’s it going? Have you had a good week? I hope you are able to find time to relax this weekend. Today is weekly round-up time! It’s when I go over everything that has been happening in my little corner of bookland.
What I read this week:
Kaiju Preservation Society by John Scalzi
This is the story of Jamie. Jamie, like a lot of folks, was forced to make a career change during the pandemic to food delivery driver. This led him to an old friend who led him to the KPS. This wild romp was a lot of fun to read and made me laugh a few times.
Portrait in Death by J.D. Robb
I’ve slowed down a little bit in my In Death re-read. But this was the 16th book in the series and it delved into Roarke’s past. Twas fascinating. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Take a Hint, Dani Brown by Talia Hibbert
After Dani gets rescued from an elevator during a drill by her friend Zafir, they go viral and then proceed to fake date so his charity can get more positive press. This, the second book in the Brown Sister’s trilogy, was another delight to read.
The Bromance Book Club by Lyssa Kay Adams
The premise of this series is pretty funny. A bunch of serious alpha male types reads romance books to teach them how to be better partners to their SO’s. This book is all about Gavin and Thea. And it is pretty funny, but also serious, as serious as Gavin is about saving his marriage. I really enjoyed this and may have added the next books to my wishlist.
I started off the week on Monday with a different sort of post, a Life Update! It’s a job!
Tuesday was, as to be expected, a Top Ten Tuesday. It was all about books with adjectives in the title.
I managed to do a WWW Wednesday this week! You know, having skipped the last few weeks of this post.
I wrote a review for the Kaiju Preservation Society on Thursday. Spoiler alert, the book is great.
First Lines Friday was a book that I had just recently added to my TBR.
In Other News:
Do you happen to have a favorite Netflix show? Maybe Bridgerton or Sweet Magnolias? Did you know they were based on books? Let’s be honest, given that you are reading a book blog, you probably did. But Netflix has a book club! It is aptly named the Netflix Book Club! It’s hosted by Uzo Aduba and often features authors and other celebrity guests. You can follow the series on its website or on the YouTube channel.
I’m not gonna lie, I haven’t read any of the Bridgerton novels, nor have I watched the show. Should I change that? What do you think? Is it worth the time?
