Week Recap - Some Rain, Some Sun, No Spring

The weather this week drove me nuts, we are still not getting spring, just lots of wind, rain and a little sun. It has barely gotten around 50 degrees all week. I seriously am aching to read outside but alas, it seems like I am going to have to wait forever.
Not much else happened, so I did get a few books read. I have a ton of books on request at the library so they keep trickling in as the new releases come out!


This Week on A Flurry of Ponderings:
Tuesday - Review of Red Rising
Thursday - Review of Where She Went
Friday - Book Tour with The Bellum Prophecy and Book Tour with Justice Buried (Giveaways)
Saturday - Review of Born of Illusion

Upcoming Reviews:
I am doing really well with Book Bingo, but I need some help with the open spaces. Any ideas on books set in California or Florida or the Caribbean, books with a bird on the cover, a book with a Latino MC, a book about plants or wilderness or a book with April, May or June in the title?

  1. The Geography of You and Me is pretty good - not the best I've read from Jennifer E. Smith, but still cute and fast read :)

  6. Ugh, the weather is killing me here. It was raining non-stop Thursday and I was out all day, today there's sun! And I have a bad dose of hay fever, and it's annoying. :( Loved The Geography of You and Me, one of my favourites this year! :) Happy reading.

    Here's mine

  7. I'm sorry your Spring isn't coming, ours finally is so I'll try to send some of our beautiful weather your way! As for your bingo I have a couple books for you (I can't resist a challenge- even on I'm not doing, so I totally went through my books looking LOL)

    Latino MC - A Moment by Marie Hall. A a bonus, it's a really good book and I would be totally willing to loan it to you (I have a kindle copy).

    Bird on the cover - this might be a stretch by Sanctuary by Pauline Creeden has a bunch of birds flying in the distance on the cover. And it's also incredibly good. And if you haven't read the Hunger Games... all those covers have a mockingjay on them

    About Plants or Wilderness - I just saw this book reviewed by Stormi over at Books Movies Reviews Oh My! so I haven't read it, but it's definitely about plants. It's called the Garden Plot by Marty Wingate and it's a cozy mystery.

    And that's all I've got for now - but I'll keep my eyes open for you :) Have a great week!

  12. I'm just stumbling across your blog. That's an interesting haul you have there. I'm interested to see what you think about big fat disaster. I've seen the book around but I haven't seen any reviews. New follower :)

  13. A couple of June books: Saving June is supposed to be good (it's on my TBR) and I liked Faith, Hope and Ivy June. It's middle grade. The Reece Malcolm List and Michael Grant's Gone series are set in California.

  14. I liked Dorothy Must Die. Great haul! I hope you enjoy your books!

  15. Funny weather you're having! It's autumn here but over the weekend it suddenly felt like winter, sooo chilly! I hope you get to read outside in the sun soon!

    Re. bookish bingo, I've made a list of books I plan to read, here are some to fit the categories you need to check off:
    Latino MC - Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe,
    Birds on the cover - Tandem, Summer and Bird
    Caribbean - Wide Sargasso Sea
    April/May/June - The Extraordinary Secrets of April, May, & June (I love that this has all three months in the title!)
    Cali - Drain You, The Reece Malcolm List, Audrey, Wait!
    Florida - Where the Stars Still Shine, Waiting, Shrinking Violet, Paper Towns
    Plants/wilderness - for this one I'm planning on reading a new Aussie title (The Other Side of Nowhere) so I don't think that'll be available for you.. I was interpreting wilderness as just set outdoors, away from a city, so maybe try for a book on camping? Wildlife by Fiona Wood is fantastic, but I don't think it's being pub'd in the US til September.

    If you need any other ideas, check my shelves on Goodreads or send me an email :) xox

  17. Happy reading . I found a forum on goodreads that has to do with fiction set in the Jamaica . Maybe it could be of assistance .

  20. Oh gosh...50 degrees??! THAT IS FULL-BLOWN WINTER HERE IN AUSTRALIA. We're having 60 degrees (farenheit) temperatures now and freezing our minds off. x) Anyhow, I hope you enjoy your new books!

  21. Wowee look how close you are to completing you Bookish Bingo card! My pick for having June in the title will be Hannah Harrington's 'Saving June' (I'm waiting till June to read it haha!). I look forward to your reviews on Going Bovine and Dorothy Must Die. Going Bovine has been sitting on my shelf, waiting to be read for AGES.

  22. I know Lucy by Melissa Pearl is set in California (suspense thriller), Full Steam Ahead by Valerie Chase is a cruise to the caribean (but it is NA contemporary, so I am not sure if you would like that) and Must Love Otters by Eliza Gordon is about plants and wildlife/wilderness and it is so freakin' cute!! (its adult contemporary/romantic comedy)

    Hope this helps ;)

  23. Book with a Latino MC; Perfect Chemistry. Not a fave of mine but a lot of people love it.
    Books set in the Caribbean; Pirate Latitudes. It's been sitting on my shelf forever. I've been dying to actually read it.
    Books set in Florida; Dream Factory. Just finished it. It's a cute one.
    Books with a bird on the cover; Me Before You(UK cover). One of my fave books.
    Good luck!

  24. We had some super hot weather here. And then it got pretty cool again. Well, it's not bad- maybe 60's? But a bit wet.
    I hope that people have suggestions for you (it looks like they do) cause I'm drawing a blank.

  25. It's like that here, too, weather-wise. Today (Tues) is pretty nice, but all last week it hovered in the 50s and was dreary and wet out. I'm so ready for Spring. Great haul and happy reading!

  26. Oooh, oooh! I have a recommendation for a book with April May June in the Title! The Extraordinary Secrets of April, May, & June by Robin Benway! :D I found it funny, light, and sweet. :)

  27. I can't wait to read Dorothy Must Die, but I hated Big Fat Disaster (and I'm not one to through that word around). Enjoy them all :) My STS
