Another weekend … another update!
In my life:
Remember how I said last week that my life was boring? Well, this week is no different! (Aren’t you glad you read these posts?)
The husband was away ALL WEEK — since last Friday — and I spent a LOT of time reading books. Since he left, I think I read about 14 books total. Yup. I also did a little baby shopping AND went to see The Heat with my best friend (super funny!). I also wanted to take it easy knowing that the husband wasn’t going to be home — since all the weird pregnancy things seem to be happening to me, I didn’t want anything to happen!
Speaking of baby, I did go through all the books I’ve bought AND the ones my parents have kept since my childhood (and some from before!). I’m not sure — do we have enough books for baby? 😉
In reading (& blogging):
So the week before this past week, I read 7 books — 5 of them review books. After I started really getting into the habit of reading the review books, I set myself on a mission to try and get the majority of them read, starting with my physical copies. So happy that I only have 8 more physical copies left! Of course, I seem to be terrible with requesting books from NetGalley and Eidelweiss, so there are a LOT of those. Seriously. I’m too embarrassed to share that number!
This week I read:
1. The Queen of Kentucky by Alecia Whitaker (review book)
2. Golden by Jessi Kirby (review book)
3. Dark Triumph (His Fair Assassin, #2) by Robin LaFevers (review book)
4. Scorch (Croak, #2) by Gina Damico (review book)
5. Enchanted (Woodcutter Sisters, #1) by Alethea Kontis (review book)
6. Rock On by Denise Vega (review book)
7. The Night She Disappeared by April Henry (review book)
8. Hound Dog True by Linda Urban (review book)
9. Pregnant Pause by Han Nolan (review book)
10. Nobody’s Secret by Michaela MacColl (review book)
I KNOW, RIGHT!?!?! I only hope that I can keep up this momentum in the coming weeks and whittle down that review book number! Since I’m scheduling reviews way ahead, I did the math and once I finish them all, I’ll have reviews into the new year. As in, if I finish ALL the review books I have, I won’t have any spaces for their review on the blog this year. *dances around happily*
ANYWAY, my goal is to get through the majority of my review books by the end of August. AND to start working on the books I buy. I hope to have lots of reviews scheduled into 2014 when I’m too busy with baby. 🙂
Now, onto the books! (Click on the covers to be taken to Goodreads)
Here are the review books I acquired (Yes, I’m still requesting for some reason …). Thank you to HarperCollins, Atria, and Hachette Book Group Canada!
This week, I did buy some books, one physical book and some ebooks (I love an Amazon sale!):
And some books that I won! Thank you to Margie over at Bumbles & Fairytales, Random House Canada, and Goose Lane Editions!
And lastly, some freebie books from Amazon, because I have a real problem passing up freebies. 🙂
How was your week? Have you read anything good lately?
