Week in READ-view

Posted August 11, 2013 by Michelle in Uncategorized / 2 Comments

I had such an amazing week with the kids. Now it’s back to work and only 3 weeks until the start of school. This time it’s for the kids and myself.

While I was off this week I did a little bit of reading but finally got the chance to enjoy some documentaries on Netflix.

I am a huge pro wrestling fan. I have been since I was a little girl. My 8 year old son Ryan in now into it and we are spending an arm and a leg on pay per-review each month. I have to say it’s totally worth it. My son loves it and it’s a great reward for him when he tries something new or is a good boy. My interest may differ from my sons since I am watching it for the HOT guys and the fantastic story lines 😉 
but it’s really all about the HOT guys.

Ok I wont lie I really just love the entertainment of it all (besides the HOT guys). I have always been completely fascinated with the way they preform the moves and how they are capable of putting their bodies through such punishment. On Netflix I found Mick Foley and CM Punk documentaries and I can’t even explain the new found respect I have for both of those men. What they went through and what they do to there bodies is amazing. I stub my toe and I’m done for the night. What they do to entertain us fans is just simply amazing. I completely recommend. They were phenomenal to watch.

On a weird note….

I’m not sure if I would call myself a fan or just have a morbid interest in Jack the Ripper. How that man was never caught throws me for a loop. What he did to those women was awful yet fascinating. Ewww!!!! you must be thinking but I don’t know why I find his story so intriguing. So while roaming through the documentaries section I found the First Serial Killer in America that was H.H. Holmes. Whoa that man was scary (not jack the ripper scary but scary). The 1800 scare the crap out of me I don’t know why, I’m just so glad I live now and not then, but this man was a serious nut. He built a house called the Castle just so he can kill and torture people. WHO DOES THAT!!! He would sell their bones to the local schools once they were stripped clean and no one had a clue that it was “Rosie” from down the block. People are seriously crazy. The documentary was very good. If you are looking to learn a bit about the history of our first serial killer or looking to just be freaked out for an evening then I strongly recommend this one to you 😉
I was actually quite mad at myself for not reading more while I was home. 
I did finish Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas. That was one hell of a book. 
I plan to post both Throne of Glass and Crown of Midnight by the end of the week.

I am currently reading:
The Clockwork Scarab 
by Colleen Cleason
Expected publication: September 17th 2013 by Chronicle Books
Facebook / Goodreads
Two young women of similar age and standing have disappeared: one found dead and the other still missing. The only clue to connect them is a small Egyptian clockwork scarab. Only Miss Stoker and Miss Holmes are well-positioned enough—similar in age and stature as they are to the victims—to investigate. An unlikely pair, the fierce Evaline Stoker and logical Mina Holmes must follow in the footsteps of their infamous families—Miss Holmes has inherited her Uncle Sherlock’s keen investigative skills, while Miss Stoker has accepted her family calling as a hunter of the undead. The partners must find a way to work together, while navigating the advances of a strange yet handsome American, a clever Scotland Yard investigator, and a cunning thief, to solve the mystery of the clockwork scarabs.

Set in steam punk London, steeped in Egyptian mythology
and literary references, with a surprising time travel twist and compelling romantic triangles, Colleen Gleason has crafted a fast-paced and romantic debut young adult novel.

So far I am really liking this book. This will be my first book form Colleen Gleason. She is an exceptional writer. The story is amazing and the characters are so well written.  Should be finished with this either tonight or tomorrow and I plan to read more from her. 
Then up next are two tour review reads. 
Working it Out by Rachael Renee Anderson
and
American Girl on Saturn by Nikki Godwin
I also got three books from netgalley.
 I was SHOCKED and excited.
I’m surprised I didn’t explode

Conjured by Sarah Beth Durst 
and
The Troop by Nick Cutter
I’m rather excited about reading these. I’m not sure when I will get to the 3 
from Netgalley but I am hoping to read them soon
I want to do something super cool for October ending with a giveaway on Halloween as well as an awesome Halloween post of spooky books. 
I might pick 2 books to giveaway, ones I have read that I thought were scary.
I honestly have to tell you I haven’t read that many scary books but if October goes as I have planned I have 4 spooky books I want to read and maybe will give one of them away. Still working out all the details 🙂
So now it’s back to work and almost the end of the summer. The next three weeks I might not be posting a lot just a couple things. I’m not going any place just trying to spend the last of the summer with the family before all the craziness of school starts up again. 
Thanks for being so patient with me I really appreciate it. 
Don’t forget to follow me on Facebook , Twitter or Goodreads
I usually update those everyday.
Hoping to have some super awesome things for you for the end of the year.
What is on your TBR list this week?
until next time…
Have a great night
and
Happy Reading
