Sunday Reads (43)

sunday reads-01

Another weekend … another update!

In my life: 

Not a crazy busy week this week. Like I mentioned last week, the husband came home after being away for 10 days. It’s always so nice to have him home! We also got rain and it feels more like fall outside than it does summer. The days really need to slow down!

In reading (& blogging): 

This week started off to be the week of blogging! I was way behind on writing reviews and had an outline of posts to schedule until the end of 2013. I spent ALL DAY on Monday working on these posts and scheduled pretty much everything until the end of the year, minus the spaces reviews. I’ve even started scheduling reviews in 2014! I am determined to get totally scheduled for when baby comes!

This week I read:

1. The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay (review book — review 08/13)

2. How Zoe Made Her Dreams (Mostly) Come True by Sarah Strohmeyer (review book — review 08/06)

3. Lola and the Boy Next Door (Anna and the French Kiss, #2) by Stephanie Perkins (reread)

4. The Outside (The Hallowed Ones, #2) by Laura Bickle (review book – – review 08/28)

A lot slower than last week, but I felt like I really had to savour The Sea of Tranquility, so I took my time. 🙂

Now, onto the books! (Click on the covers to be taken to Goodreads)

Here are the review books I acquired. I am SO FREAKING EXCITED for all of them! Thank you to Thomas Allen & Sons and Raincoast Books!

I bought a few books this week, one hardcover and the rest were Amazon sale books (I know, I have a problem):

And a few more freebie books from Amazon. 🙂

  1. My week was good. I haven’t been able to read that much this past week either. I started the Shadow Falls series by CC Hunter and I’ve been on the fourth book for the past 4 days. I think I’m afraid to finish it honestly.

    • Because it’s not good? Or because you’re liking it too much? Or because you’re afraid of how it will end?

      I definitely have those books that I spend DAYS reading … I could finish them sooner, but something always holds me back.

  2. I wish I had your motivation! Ugh..lol I can barely get ahead on reviews, I thik it would help if I could read more lately. Next week is a slow week for me though, so maybe I’ll luck out and get some reading done. I am savouring Crown of Midnight though. It’s pretty good so far!

    I’m still super jealous of The Outside! I neeeeed it! lol And I’m thinking Rogue might be my next read! After I get my weekly reading of A Storm of Swords done 😉

    Slow weeks are good! Mine was slow and stressful (watched 4 kids almost everyday and 3 the rest of the days. So glad for the long weekend and only a 3 day week of watching kids next week. Kailyn is working on potty training this weekend. I’m hoping to have her fully trained by the time baby comes!

    Have a great week!

    • Oh, I hope you love it! It was a slower kind of story, but I loved that. It meant I could take my time going through it, getting to know the characters. You’ll have to let me know your thoughts! 🙂

  3. My mouth popped open when I saw my books lol. Thank you so much, Kristilyn! 😀

    I’m SO impressed that you’re scheduled so far in advance. I can barely manage to get a week scheduled ahead! I really need to get organized so I can concentrate on writing my next book and not always be scrambling to get blog posts up.

    I hope you enjoy all your new books! ❤

    • You’re welcome! I’ve seen so many people gushing about them, that I had to pick them up!

      I am working SO HARD at scheduling for the new year. This is one of those things where I just don’t have any idea what kind of time I’ll have for reading or blogging. I’m sure after the 6 month mark I’ll be able to see how things are, but before that I am pretty determined to schedule!

  4. You are awesome for having posts scheduled all the way into 2014. I think I am awesome when I have them scheduled a couple of weeks in advance. I don’t recognize a lot of the books you got this week, but I hope you enjoy them, and I certainly have heard a lot about Croak. I am just so afraid I won’t like it!

    • Thanks, Kara! I’ve always been a bit of a scheduling monster. 🙂

      Oh you should read Croak! Though, I understand that feeling. I rarely read hyped up books in the midst of the hype.
