The Weekly Recap (133)

Posted June 24, 2019 by Rowena in Books | 4 Comments

This past week was for family in town (it seems that I’m always saying that in my weekly recaps but it’s true, ha!) because my niece Maleah graduated from high school. She graduated from the high school that I went to and so I was able to walk around my old stomping grounds while making our way toward the graduation ceremony. Caiden came into town for the graduation and…of course we talked his parents into letting us keep him with us for the week then his grandma is going to drive him home over the weekend. I am loving that he’s still here because I’m one of his favorites and he’s mine.

This weekend was also for another sibling dinner and you guys, for the first time in years, we were all together in the same space to share a meal together and it was fabulous. We even got our Dad to go to dinner with us and he never wants to go to dinner outside of the house. I had a lot of fun catching up with my siblings, reminiscing and just having a blast being in eachother’s company without a million kids running around, screaming at the top of their lungs. The rest of the night, I could have done without (freaking dumbass drama) but that didn’t take away from my sibling dinner and the quality time that I got to spend with the folks I love the most!

Now, onto the books…

An unexpected phone call heralds a new challenge for Mercy. Her mate Adam’s ex-wife is in trouble, on the run from a stalker. Adam isn’t the kind of man to turn away a person in need—and Mercy knows it. But with Christy holed up in Adam’s house, Mercy can’t shake the feeling that something about the situation isn’t right.

Soon her suspicions are confirmed when she learns that Christy has the furthest thing from good intentions. She wants Adam back, and she’s willing to do whatever it takes to get him, including turning Adam’s pack against Mercy.

Mercy isn’t about to step down without a fight, but there’s a more dangerous threat circling. Christy’s stalker is more than a bad man—in fact, he may not be human at all. As the bodies start piling up, Mercy must put her personal troubles aside to face a creature with the power to tear her whole world apart.

I really, really want to catch up with the Mercy Thompson series because I really like this world and though I’ve heard that this book was the book that broke the series for some reader friends on Twitter, I still want to read this book for myself and see how things pan out for me. I’m not that far into the book since I was pretty busy over the weekend but so far, I’ve already experienced some annoyance at certain people in the pack that don’t even bother to mask how much they don’t like Mercy and honestly, Mercy needs to check their asses already.

What I Read

Highland Deception by Meggan Connors | 3 out of 5
The Friend Zone by Abby Jimenez | 1 out of 5
Call It What You Want by Brigid Kemmerer | 3.5 out of 5

As you can tell, my reading of bad books has not come to an end and though I didn’t LOVE any of the books that I read, I did enjoy the Kemmerer so I’m definitely interested in reading more of her stuff. I’m crossing my fingers that this week will be a better week in reading for me. Wish me luck!
