It was a busy week with meetings, kids and this nagging funk I am in. It has been dark and cold, which doesn’t help. I’ve been binge watching shows. I am all caught up on SEALS, devoured the first season of Fire Country and started Scorpion. We’ve been watching season three of Scarlet and the Duke and I binge watched Lockwood & Co today since it was below thirteen degrees for most of the day. I’ve been blowing through audiobooks as well. I am on a bit of a mystery/crime binge and going with the flow. However, I also listened to a fantastic witchy/magical realism audiobook called Weyward. It releases in March and I highly recommend it. Stay Caffeinated.

    Sorry to hear about the funk, Kimberly – it’s always tough when those hit during the winter. Thank goodness for good shows and wonderful books! I have Lockwood & Co on my radar as I listened to the audiobooks several years ago and absolutely loved it. Thank you for the recommendation regarding Weyward – and I hope this is a kinder week for you.

  2. Lorna

    What channels are you watching? I’ve only heard of one of those shows. Sorry about the funk. I guess your weather there makes it really hard. It 57 here right now but then tomorrow we get the bad cold stuff again. We have had zero snow this year. It’s crazy. Hope you are okay!

  3. Katherine

    I don’t go outside if the temperature is below 50. I’m very much a weather wimp. I have Scarlet and the Duke on my To Watch list and I’m curious about Lockwood and Co. I liked the first book and have been meaning to continue with the series. Have a wonderful week!

    I would hide inside if my weather was that cold. I hope things warm up for you.
    Looks like you are having good reading and watching. I’ll look for Weyward. Have a good week and Happy Reading!

    hope it brightens up a bit for you…. and I am still not able to really get into audiobooks though I hoped I could…we have been doing some binge-watching as well (with Midsomer Murders and Better Call Saul – finally got started on this after hearing so much about it)

    Bummer about the funk. Wishing you some gorgeous sunshine and a rise in temps. We’ve got the low temps, too, and I don’t linger outside. Been hitting the audios and books hard, too.

    Have a good week, Kimberly!

    Thanks so much for the Weyward recommendation. I want to read more magical realism, especially books that have witches in them. I looked this up on Goodreads and it seems like something I would really enjoy. My local library already ordered it and I got on the waiting list for when they receive it. Yay!! 🙂


    You have been busy. I have been waiting to watch Fire Country to be sure it was going to stick around. Lately, when I get caught up in a new show it gets canceled. lol

    Have a great week!

  9. Wendy

    I hope you feel better soon. I don’t do well when it’s dark and cloudy, so I try to get out in the sunshine as much as possible.

    It’s hard to be feeling great when the gloomy cold days of late January arrive! I’ve been listening to the membership-included audible thrillers to entertain myself as I look forward longer days and warmer temps. I hope you see some sun this week and that helps!

  11. Lover of Romance

    I also binged a tv show and am ready to get back to books! I am so tired of the cloudy weather too. We had one day of sun and it was so nice. I miss the sunshine. lol I know for us in Utah, more snow is better for us for summertime as it makes it more comfortable but its still a pain unless I am going out skiing. I really do love magical realism type of books.

  12. Sophie

    It’s cold and glommy here too Kimberly. Hard to have some energy indeed! And I am on a thriller kick as well! Must be the season LOL. Have a great week!

  13. A Voracious Reader

    My genres have been dark lately. I’ve been leaning towards those for awhile now with some lighter ones thrown in. Funny how we go in cycles. I’ll have to check Weyward out.

  14. Jodie

    I haven’t heard of any of these shows but I’m glad you’re enjoying them. The dark days of winter are slowly receding. I am counting the days until spring. Have a great week ahead and enjoy your new books.

  15. Jessica @ a GREAT read

    Oddly I feel like our winter here has been more mild than in years past. I mean, I’m a winter baby, so I love cold weather. I can do without the subzero temps though!

    Nice new reads! Those are new to me ones but I hope you enjoy them all!

    Here’s my StS

    Have a GREAT day!

    That does sound cold! It’s been bright but cold here (although I am South East UK – I think other places have had snow). We managed to get to the beach (my son loves it!). We wrapped up and put on our wellies 😂

    Hope the weather clears up soon.

    It’s been dark here too, no sun and very dreary. I’ve been binging shows too. Watching Last of Us. Right now we’re practically snowed in with a big winter blast. Hope you are having a good weekend!!!!!
