Weekly Wrap-Up (19)


Book Haul

I skipped last week since I had a really slow book haul week, wasn't reading much, and had little to say. Then this week happened.

Week 1:
The Shape of My Heart by Ann Aguirre (egalley via Netgalley)
Love, Lucy by April Lindner (ARC via NOVL program)

Week 2:
Tracked by Jenny Martin (egalley via publicist)
Flirty Dancing by Jenny McLachlan (egalley via publisher from Netgalley)
The Forgotten Ones by Laura Howard (Kindle freebie)
3: AM Kisses by Addison Moore (Kindle freebie)
One Dream Only by Elodie Nowodazkij (Kindle freebie)
Starstruck by Lauren Syvertsen (Kindle freebie)
Omega City by Diana Peterfreund (ARC from publisher)
The Cage by Megan Shepherd (ARC from publisher)
Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge (ARC from publisher)
Conspiracy of Blood and Smoke by Anne Blankman (ARC from publisher)
The Retribution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin (finished copy from publisher)

(Note: There's been...a lot more since then, but it's late and I'm sleepy, so I'll just throw them on to next week's.)

I'm SO STOKED for a lot of these, guys. So. Stoked.

Books Read 

A Wicked Thing by Rhiannon Thomas 
Skandal by Lindsay Smith
Upcoming Reads

Conspiracy of Blood and Smoke by Anne Blankman
None of the Above by I.W. Gregorio
Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge

I'm already almost done with Conspiracy of Blood and Smoke (SO!!! GOOD!!!) and I'm a good way through None of the Above as well. And since it's a holiday weekend...a girl can hope, right?

Odds and Ends 

My birthday was yesterday and it was really lovely. I got up early to see Mockingjay with my mom, then we went to lunch at my favorite Mexican food place, rested for a few hours, then I went to dinner with two of my best friends. When we came back, I opened presents and we collected cupcakes and candy and began a movie night (Despicable Me 2 and Austenland) while looking through yearbooks before eventually starting a Mario Kart tournament. It's not super special, but it's the kind of birthday I like. And today, I get cake. I also could NOT be more excited to have a shortened week. I'm going to be working on a few things in December I'm thrilled about, but I could definitely use some more rest and quiet time first.


So, it's been a while. I haven't been reading as much as I'd want to this month, partially because of NaNoWriMo and partially because of family stuff. I was planning on doing a read-a-thon today and tomorrow, but my grandad died today so I don't think I'll be able to focus on that--I'm pretty much just writing this post as a distraction from thinking and feeling. I'll shut up now.
