Another weekend … another update!
In my life:
Look at me! An update TWO WEEKENDS IN A ROW!
Seriously … who am I?!?
Really, though, not much has been going on with me. We had a bit of a baby scare on Tuesday at the doctor’s when the heartbeat couldn’t be found (usually not a huge deal, but I was very worried since it had never been a problem at any other appointment), BUT then we had an ultrasound on Thursday and the little nugget is safe and sound! We even found out the sex, which was very exciting. I’m pretty sure I started crying whenever I thought about it that day. The plan is to NOT share it with anyone, but the husband and I are pretty sure that I’ll be the one to accidentally let it slip.
Other than that I’ve been at home a lot. I’ve been really tired lately and just can’t keep my eyes open for much. Lots of reading has been happening, an afternoon out with the husband, and that’s about it. My life is boring.
In reading (& blogging):
I’ve been a bit of a reading machine this week! I’ve been participating in the Hot Summer Reads read-a-thon and read SEVEN BOOKS, which is awesome. I’m trying to power through a lot of my review books that I’ve been neglecting, so if you see my Goodreads updates, that’s probably what you’ll be seeing a lot of.
This week I read:
1. Uncharted (On the Island, #1.5) by Tracey Garvis Graves
2. Nomad by J. L. Bryan (review book)
3. The Fifth Wave (The Fifth Wave, #1) by Rick Yancey
4. The Moon and More by Sarah Dessen (review book)
5. Nantucket Blue by Leila Howland (review book)
6. The Fury (The Fury, #1) by Alexander Gordon Smith (review book)
7. The Lucy Variations by Sara Zarr (review book)
I also WON some books — first books won for baby and they’re some of my FAVOURITES!
Love Melanie Watt’s Scaredy Squirrel series … I hope to pick up the rest at some point. I even got the husband to read through the first one — I don’t think he appreciated it as much as I do, but I’m sure he’ll come around.
I also hit up the bargain books on Amazon, something I tend to do every few months or so. They have GREAT deals on books that they have a few left of and I think I got all of these for only $40. I was super excited to get the first four books in Alyxandra Harvey’s vampire series, as well as a stand-alone from her. And I picked up the third book in Lesley Livingston’s series, mainly because of the price. I have the first book on my ereader and don’t own the second book, but I couldn’t pass it up since it was only $3! Amazon was super fast at shipping, too, and I received two packages 4 and 5 days after ordering. Win!
And lastly, I got this book from a coworker. The author is a friend of hers and was looking for reviewers. I plan on passing it over to Laura over at Reading In Bed, but I might try and give it a read first!
How was your week? Have you read anything good lately?
